The Girl

Student by day and wannabe writer by night, I’m currently a 5th-year dental student living in the Land of Smiles.

When I’m not blogging, I love to gorge on music, snap photos, kick it with my friends, travel, loiter in bookstores, $hoe-$hop, people-watch, learn about new cultures, go fine-dining, and most importantly, read and write. Unfortunately, the latter two are something of an unhealthy obsession.

Don’t ask me where I’m from because I will probably end up staring blankly at you as even I have yet to figure that out. But if you care about the details, I was born in the US, shuffled across four American states, transplanted to Bangkok when I was eleven, and now can’t imagine living anywhere else in the world. I’m Teo Chew Chinese to the bone, but would probably end up crying if thrown into a one-on-one speaking contest with a 3-year-old Chinese kid.  To put things in perspective, my French, which is appallingly bad already, is eons away from my command of Teo Chew or Mandarin.

I guess it doesn’t help that my mother swears I was Irish in my last life. Go figure. ;)

Adieu ma chere zee dentiste et ecrivain. J’adore ton blog: Les pets du cerveau :)

Have you read Pico Iyer? Some of what you wrote about reminded me of his, let’s say, rhaposodizing in _The Global Soul_. While I think he rhapsodizes a mite too much sometimes in that book, which I’m just now still plodding through, it’s worth a brief look, I think.

Wow, no, I haven’t, but thanks for the recommendation! I looked him up and his stuff sounds amazing.

Hey! I found your site via a google seach for my own and saw that you linked to me! Thank you very much! I really appreciate your suppot.

the title is pretty much what brought me here, can’t even remember how I got here…(that’s happened more times than I’d like to admit) but enjoying it just the same…


Great book. I just want to say what a fantastic thing you are doing! Good luck!
