I'm a postgraduate student at the National University of Singapore, currently busying myself with writing up my dissertation on international education in East Asia, and managing my online shop selling Japanese fashion brands ((website hidden))
I used to be a Geography teacher in a high school in Singapore, and have done a teaching stint as an English teacher in Yokohama, Japan. For the love of travelling, I emptied my savings on a half a year round-the -world backpacking trip, those that left a lasting impression include the San Blas islands in Panama, making friends with Brazilian school students on Christ the Redeemer statue at Rio, and unknowingly putting my legs into crocodile-infested waters on the Zambia River.
Coming from a tiny nation-state, I enjoy interacting with people from different backgrounds and firmly believe that travel without knowing someone local in the process is such a shame.
