Here, at this blog, is where my linguist mind collides with my non-academic self. I try not to keep them separate to begin with, but it helps me remember that we all look at things in different ways, and perhaps acknowledging those different ways are what leads to new ideas and approaches. This is where I will share thoughts on ongoing projects, observations as a Singlish-speaker, as well as potentially witty commentary on Singapore and her development, through the lens of a sometimes ambivalent, sometimes passionate Singaporean millennial (yes I will admit to it) growing up in the 90s.


#blacklivesmatter, and what it means for me as a Singaporean

This is a rather long post, and a serious one at that for my first one. I did wonder if I should post this, because I definitely do not want to detract from the crucial conversation that is going on from other more important voices now. But there are things I want to say, and this is the best platform I can use.
