About you

How long have you been in Singapore?

Since the day I came into this world.

What do you like about Singapore?

I like hanging around at the beach so I would say I like the sun best in Singapore.

Your fave Singapore food and why?

Chili crab, especially so when eaten with the “man-tou” (buns). Yummy!

What do you like to do in your spare time?                    

Probably shopping or hanging around on Sentosa or sleeping and just staying in bed watching online movies/dramas. It really depends on my mood for the day. No particular hobbies.

Travel? Your fave destination and why?

At the moment I would say Taiwan. I love shopping there. The weather is cooling (during the end of the year) and you can easily get tasty food/small bites from their roadside pushcarts (something uncommon in Singapore).

What do you want us to know about you?

Always appreciate what we have – The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything but they make the most out of everything.
