Thank You for Visiting!
This is a place carved out of specific interests in Diet and Yoga, plus a big desire to share it!
The intention is for it to function as:
A contact point to make Wellness more accessible to all fellow beings.
My telescope to Health!
Health is a balance of physical and mental elements, although many of us experience it in fragments. As humans, we are privileged with the intelligence to grant ourselves immunity to both physical and mental woes.
So Human, here's to existing with a whole Health, and to existing in harmony!
Human by nature,
Yogi by choice.

Peektures Of My Life
(and how I became me.)
The last member to a warm family of Six!
And my first memory of Sadness, Dread and Fear...
I received the Rabbit that would become a huge part of my life. For a shy child, it was an instrumental alter ego to speak my feelings (especially for brave words like: "I Love You!").
A Chubby Delinquent
Being the only child to attend a neighbourhood school hurt my confidence. This was further bruised by the rude reminders of my overweight physique - through a cruel, cruelly insidious club called the TAF Club.
I hated school and wanted to spend all my time with my sister - so truancy we played. We dyed our hair, imitated fashion trends, binged Hong Kong and Korean Media together. To me, my older sister was my world.
Love and Shame
Up until Junior College, I was struggling with being overweight, being in an unconventional relationship, and worryingly poor academic performance.
Things were also occurring within my family that I couldn't comprehend.
Throughout this time, all I felt towards myself were loneliness, embarrassment, confusion and a wealth of feelings I couldn't communicate...

First Day of School
UNi and a new me
There came an unimaginable day when I could fit into skinny jeans. I was paralysed by waves of bliss the day I could start wearing whatever I wanted.
For a brief period I felt light, refreshed, inspired, loved and accepted.
I became a little more self-aware, started exploring Healthy Eating more seriously, but was low-key beginning to develop an Eating Disorder.
I was also starting to like clubbing a bit too much!
I was not used to the sudden compliments, attention, for my mind was still held by the one of a quiet, fat, soft and unconfident girl.
Over summer break, I embarked on two solo trips for the first time in my life: A month in Australia, and two in Myanmar.
Deep down, I was urged to be somewhere alone...
I fell in love with the picturesque Palm Beach at Gold Coast, and was touched by the produce and health foods that ran through Australian cities.
At Myanmar, I was put up in a monastery. Under the wisdom and kindness of many loving monks, I had my first brush with Buddhism and Meditation.
Garbage, The Killers, Lou Reed, Keane, Aerosmith
Conflicts around me and poor decisions fledged me into a full blown emo kid: I bleached my hair, obsessed over art and toys, and constantly wallowed in addictions, self-pity and destructive behaviours.
Amidst all these, I crossed paths with a Virgo male I thought I would be with eternally.
