You got a minute?
It all begins here.
I’ve noticed that I’ve been very “judgy” as of late. (I’m the quintessential ENTJ in the Meyers-Briggs personality test), I think my judgemental quality stems from being conscious of how I portray myself in public which then makes me look/judge others in the same way. Especially since I’m in my 30s and I have friends of the […]
I started out my career in Malaysia with insecurity and fear of judgement. I was also in my early 20s, beaming confidence while hiding many pockets of self-uncertainty and a bit of luck in the genetics lottery. My hustle was often predicated on being two steps ahead of poverty. After purchasing a one-way ticket, I had no […]
The Cost of a Hustle
Everyone always preaches about how people should follow their dreams and pursue happiness. I’m a huge believer in it, don’t get me wrong, its just that dreams come at a cost. The struggle and the sacrifice you make for what you want is visceral, tangible and usually irreversible.
So when is your turn?
A moment of insecurity seeped into my head this evening. I get that once in awhile and it throws my entire night off. I’ve been slightly sick, even though it is just a typical cold, I’ve been feeling a little more vulnerable than usual.
I was going to write another article about how kids are so ungrateful nowadays but I’ve decided to opt out of it! (Lucky you, millennials!)Instead I thought I’d shed light about how most of decisions have been based on finding value in the things I do. Aside from being motivated by passion and determination, it […]
I’ve been feeling rather annoyed these days, it seems everyone wants a shortcut to everything. A quicker faster route to work, a shortcut to a great career, a shortcut to a good body or even meeting someone. We keep idolising success and want to fast track our journey because we see others around us in […]
Lately, I’ve had different girls talk to me about the same topic, sex. While some of my friends are happily married, some of them are still single playing the field, and the rest are just playing everyone in the field! As women in our late 20’s – early 30’s, the idea of dating, hooking up and looking for the […]
I am my Father’s Daughter.
I’ve been meaning to write about my father’s recent visit in KL but since Father’s Day is just around the corner, I thought I would pen down a little ode to my botak buddy, whom I call pops.
Dear 21-year-old Sarah
My dear, sweet, not-so innocent Sarah. 10 years ago, meaning January 2005, you’re just finishing your second year at Ryerson, falling madly in love with a guy that you think you’ll marry. You think most of your life will be spent in Canada but you have no idea that things will change so quickly in […]
I’m sorta Chinese.
This post is really a tribute to my Canadian upbringing while realizing the more I try to be “Asian”, the more I’m not. I’ve been having revelations about myself recently. Actually, it stems from my bff T who’s been going through her “I’m American” phase that has started to make me question my own identity. […]
