In short

  • I am a Singaporean born Chinese, retired secretary and part-time teacher.  I love to make people laugh. Sometimes, laughter is hard to come by. I believe LAUGHTER is a nutrition, not the 'best medicine'; it is an essence of joy. I am an omnivorous reader.

    I have written a book - based on true events, 'spoken' by my Manx cat that lived for 23 years. She saw one puppy after another, and outlived 2 of her 3 canine companions.

    Let Fluffy tell you all about the peculiarities/lifestyle of Mink, Mexi and Yoda.  Let the "The Cat That Lived Forever"  entertain you, with a touch of humour, and colourful photograph illustrations.  I want to share this wonderful joy, experience/knowledge  with readers of all ages - pet lovers as well as non-pet lovers.....

    Finicky Mink,  Gluttonous Mexi,  Inscrutable Yoda    (Hear what precocious Fluffy has to say about these doggers) -

    Full And Tired    (F.A.T. - Look at this picture and turn your frown upside down - Need only 2 minutes to laugh)

    Charmed  (A short Cinquan poem)

    Tug-Of-War  (Is this the only system of life?)

    Golden Colours    (All that glitters are not gold but bold)  -

    WHO CARES  (If only I dare)

    HELLO MAMIA! (Did I hear it talk or chuckle?)

  • Not working to be a famous writer, but just a desire to put precious thoughts into words effectively, and share with others.
