3 things I loved about Hong Kong 

Two weeks ago, I went on a short holiday to Hong Kong before the start of another hectic school term. I’ve been wanting to write this post ever since I came back but I never really got around to doing it because of being overburdened with all my school work. I have a pile of homework waiting for me right now, at this very moment, but I’m going to leave that aside for a while and do this instead. Continue reading “3 things I loved about Hong Kong “

The scary thing about trust 

Trust is a difficult concept. Trusting is hard, but knowing who to trust is even harder. Sometimes I wish everyone was as loyal as they appear to be, so that there was no such thing as betrayal and backstabbing. But I guess without all of that, there would be no drama, no enemies, no grudges, and life would just be plain boring.

And how exactly do we decide whom to trust? Personally, I think time is an overrated factor when it comes to trust. You don’t necessarily have to know someone for a really long time in order for you to trust them. Sometimes having just one conversation with somebody can make you feel like telling them your deepest secrets. And sometimes you may have been friends with someone for years, yet you still don’t feel the connection that makes you want to trust them. Continue reading “The scary thing about trust “

A proper introduction 

I originally planned to introduce myself in my first post but, well, I didn’t, so here’s your chance to find out more about me.

My name is Neha, which is a pretty popular Sanskrit female name which translates into ‘love’. Yes, my name literally means love. From what I’ve heard, this name is really popular in North India or among North Indian girls , but on the contrary, I’m actually South Indian. I was born in a town in Kerala, which is located in the southwest region of India. Fun fact : my dad was actually not present at the hospital when I was born because he was still in Singapore, and so he only arrived in India a few days later. And this was because I was born earlier than I was expected to. Anyway, I came to Singapore when I was less than 3 months old and I’ve been living here since then.

The Reason 

This is about trying new things, getting out of ruts – a platform where I can share experiences and laughs, or just a place where I can rant or cry after having a bad day. I wouldn’t consider myself to be an exceptional writer, but I’ve always loved writing ever since I started writing compositions for assignments in primary school. I still remember how in the question there would be four boxes – three of them would contain picture cartoons leading up to an incident and the last box would be a question mark. We were supposed to decide what happened in the last box and then write a story about it. Usually most kids would make their compositions straightforward but I would always find a way to make it weird and twisted. Sometimes that earned me extra marks for creativity but some teachers didn’t like my unrealistic stories and I would end up with just a borderline pass. Continue reading “The Reason “
