Conversations with Your Grab Driver.

To you, he may be just a regular Grab driver you hailed on the Grab mobile app. But to him, you’re more than just a passenger. You’re his friend, confidante, therapist and more.

False Accusations and Suicides are Causes for Concern.

A few days ago, I read the news online of a 14-year old student in Penang who committed suicide after being accused of stealing her teacher’s iPhone. According to the report, the student firmly denied doing the dirty deed but her denials fell on deaf ears. She was also struck for failing to own up…

Learning To Deal With Difficult People.

Difficult people exist everywhere on our planet. From households to workplaces, this is one group of people whom we cannot avoid or wish never to have anything to do with them.

Growing Up Pains.

Here’s yet another short blog post dedicated to my cat, Loki. We have no idea what breed he is since he was a rescued kitty. Probably a mix breed considering that his mother was a stray cat herself. We have no idea what happened to his brothers and sisters either. Hopefully they were rescued and…

Which Social Media Are You?

Like my husband said to me last night, social media exploded onto the scene of the World Wide Web just when youngsters of the latest Net Generation were born. This only means that those born after the Generation X or Y will be very well-read with smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers, and all other things…
