A struggling author in the making. Yeah, I guess that’s just how I see myself these days. So, my very first book is finally coming out on May 25 in local bookstores. YAY! Congrats me. It’s a ...

"ENOUGH."

Here we go again. I’ve never thought that once again, you did that. You just had to, didn’t you? It was your childish, irrational tantrums that had to stop. I’ve had it. We all have had it. E...

"BROKEN..."

It took me over a week to have finally come out and written this here. Even so, it is very, very difficult for me to write this whole thing down. She’s just an old lady, probably about my mot...

"OUT OF STEAM..."

As usual, I meant to write sooner. However, it’s always the same old story: I’ve been way too busy and tired lately. I’m also feeling slightly depressed. April is almost over…and I haven’t go...


I’ve wanted to write something special for you guys as a small tribute, so here it goes: I am thankful that I’ve found this amazingly creative club called The Couchsurfing Writers’ Club in Ja...


It has been a year since I moved out of my family’s home. How is it going so far? It’s going great. It’s probably not much of an issue to some people in the world, but it is still quite one i...

"ALL OVER THE PLACE..."

How can you tell when your mind is actually all over the place? For me, I am afraid a lot. Like, for example – I have written an entry before and ended up deleting / not posting it. Why? I ju...


Out of randomness, I agreed to watch the latest version of “Cinderella” (directed by.Kenneth Brannagh) last Sunday night with my best friend. Aside from the fact that it wasn’t the type of movie ...

"MEET ME HALFWAY..."

I’m still where I am now. Reality’s started dawning on me. My last salary from the previous company will be this month. After that, they’re off the hook – which is fair enough. I have to star...


To my two Little Princes and Little Prince: How are you, my little darlings? I hope the three of you are doing fine and always happy. I am glad that I finally met you again last Sunday. You a...


After a year of working on a different, weekday job, I find myself at the same crossroad…once again. A lot of other things have happened too that I hope I can keep track of all. Right, I know...

"BE THAT ELEGANT EX!"

Note: This may not be that suitable for more serious problems that end a relationship, like abuse, harassment, or even fraud! Like it or not, most of us have been exes – either out of past r...


I guess I should say I’m lucky. I’m glad I’ve been busy lately. I’ve got more and more important things to do. Haven’t you got them too? I can’t believe that we keep on dealing with the same,...


I’ve always been rather an unusual girl, ever since I was little. Well, at least according to people who (claim to?) know me. Why superheroes? Well, you could blame it on my undying love for ...


“The older we get, the fewer friends we have.” “Nobody wants to be alone. We’re social creatures.” “I can never really be alone; I could go crazy if I were!” “Why do you want to be al...

THE FLEETING TIME...

A lot has happened lately. It’s hard to keep track of things, so I guess I’m just going to write what I can still remember. Angie has left the company. My weekend was quite a blast. Hazel...


Dear Dad, It’s been a year. How are you doing there? No, I’m not trying to toughen myself up or pretending I’m emotionless. I have no energy to do so these days. I can only be me, as alwa...


Here we go again. At last, another reunion. (Well, actually – it was more than one. But that’s okay.) I’m glad we still got to meet with other girls. Hazel Eyes was so happy too. I know thing...


It doesn’t matter how you interpret the meaning / connotation of the title above; I’m just stating a very simple fact. People do change, but some (choose to) stay the same. New year = new att...

CLOSING 2014...

The first week of my holiday had gone by so fast. With Hazel Eyes, of course – a lot has been going on. Hmm, let’s see. On Monday, Hazel Eyes and I needed to finish our school reports. We lef...

"REALISTIC RESOLUTIONS"

Welcome to the same old routine, the same old year-end ritual called ‘creating your New Year’s Eve resolutions’. Whether you’re still up for it or not, that’s your call. Not me, though. You m...

BORN FOR THIS...

I still can’t believe this. I know I’m not dreaming, yet this still feels surreal… My very first novel has gotten accepted by a local publisher. YAY! The editing process will start in March 2...

BEING 33

I’d wanted to write this for me last month, but I couldn’t find the time. I’ve been quite busy lately, but that’s okay. That’s a sign that I’m still productive as a human being. One of my best fr...


Don’t mistake my silence with ignorance. You know it isn’t always so. There are things I’d rather not know. Trivialities shouldn’t always get all our attention. Ahh, here we go again! Why keep dw...

AS THE WORLD TURNS...

I’m waiting for the announcement from a local publisher I’ve sent my very first novel manuscript / draft to. Soon they’ll be choosing three winners and ten editors’ choices today. Will I be one o...


Book Description

First of all, why do I sometimes call myself “The Wordplay Warrior”?

My life has always involved writing, more especially these days. Writing has been my passion, my true love. My work also involves writing.

Not only that, choosing words carefully and wisely in this real world has been more essential lately. We live in the social media era, where people (think they can) say whatever they feel like. It’s not just about human rights; it’s also about the consequences afterwards – whether you’re willing to pay for them or not.

May we always choose our words carefully…and wisely.
