My stories always have photographs. I usually shoot them with my trusty Nikon Coolpix P6000. My photos go up on Imageshack; feel free to use them, but link back to this blog and credit me.
I’m a regular contributor to CNNGo (writing as Eddie Tee) & UCreateChange blog. I used to be Time Out Singapore’s online editor where I oversaw the website’s revamp and repurposed print material for the website. Every now and then, I turn my interviews with people into videos and upload them onto my YouTube channel: Skybe077.

- 'Kick Ball', 'Do Army', 'Do Work': For Jacen Tan, life becomes art
Check out the audio stream of the interview.

Hello. One dollar.
小姐小妹 Auntie Uncle 帮我买 tissue paper 好吗?”
-- excerpt from Mdm Liang’s 'One Dollar Tissue Paper' song”
- Kumar -- comedian, performer and Singapore's top drag queen
Check out my video interview of him. Catch him at the 3 Monkeys on weekends. He’s worth the crush of bodies and expensive drinks!
“The spotlights go on. Kumar appears. He sashays to the center in a swishy long dress that only Kate Moss-thin models can fit into. Then he speaks into the mike. I’m Kumar. I’m approved by the government. Why? Cause I’m Indian, and the president is also Indian…"
- A walking guide to Singapore's Little India
Jotted down & pictured the walking tour on Google maps. Why aren’t there more people using it?
”From the ruddy-faced backpackers that stay at Dunlop Street for the homely atmosphere to the 24-hour Mustafa Centre that stocks everything that you’ll ever and never need, we've seen for ourselves how roti prata, Thosai, Dhal, and fishhead curry are on every corner within this little slice of transported India -- all 700 by 500 meters of it. “
