The Story of Monday and the rest of the Week

Because it is Monday, and I want to start the week right. Because Monday is the first day of the week, we get a chance to set the tone for the entire week. We also get to start afresh, so-to-speak. I know Monday is not everyone's favourite day of the week. It always come too soon and it ...

The Many Faces of Shirley Maya Tan and her relationship with her hair

This is not a self-glorification post. Well, may be it is a little...but don't tell anyone that I said that ;p Seriously though, it is about my former obsession with my hair.

WHY I WAS A DISAPPOINTED MALAYSIAN BUT NOT ANYMORE

As many may or may not know by now, Malaysians have just undergone their 13th General Elections. The results were not what most people expected because it was marred by many "irregularities", and these are still being debated as I write. We have seen pictures and videos posted in our FBs throughout the day of May ...

FEARLESS WRITING WITH JULIE GRAY: THE INTERVIEW

JULIE GRAY is not called the "Writing Coach" or the "Script Doctor" for nothing. In fact, I'd call her the "Writing Whisperer" or "The Writer's Mentor". She is able to nurture and mentor not just the writing, but also the writer. To me, this is the most vital attribute of a Writing Coach or Writing Consultant. ...
