It’s been a couple of rough weeks since I returned to Singapore. Apart from the reverse-culture shock, things just haven’t been going smoothly with most of the services that I require. Things have been especially trying for the last couple of days as plans are being stalled and would need a massive overhaul. The Dark… Read More Daily Compassion

We can continue to live in the delusion that we don’t care, but this phrase ‘I don’t care’ is self-explanatory. If we cared enough to make a statement out of it, it clearly illuminates… Read More I Don’t Care!
Stereotypes are Just Categorization I don’t mean to bring up the race topic but it is the highlight in this post. I am Asian, and in many ways, my behaviours are shaped by my cultural background. Stereotypes are not necessarily a bad thing, they are just categorizations in the mind by creating mental heuristics.… Read More I Am Asian
Branching Associations I am doing research on Dyscalculia for my research assignment for one of the units that I am taking for this semester. As I am trying to associate and discern dyscalculia learning curve with dyslexia, I have another branching association (among so much more!) about dyslexia in different languages. It’s no surprise that… Read More Dyslexia Effects on Chinese Characters
