3rd generation Singaporean. Ceylonese Grandparents made this home a century ago. As I’m a homebody who can’t imagine life away from family, I’ve been here ever since.
Started blogging in 2005 and finally got my own domain, Singapore Actually, in 2011 encouraged by my cousin.
I used to write under the pseudonym, bookjunkie, and value my privacy and copyright, but every thought is authentic and me.
It’s 2022 now & I am attempting to revive my blog after my cancer journey. I now go by my real name Shanti.
I may be a homebody, but I have an adventurous spirit when it comes to travel. I especially adore travel writing (Paul Theroux, Bill Bryson & Peter Mayle come to mind..) but am able to write about anything under the sun.
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for paid writing assignments or drop a note here with your email and I’ll get back to you.
