I enjoy both creative and academic writing. Sometimes, other people enjoy my writing too. My published creative work is mostly in poetry. Sing Lit Station once described me as an "emerging poet", and one of the "Four Horsewomen of the Apoca-Lips".
One of my proudest achievements is writing a poem that included every single MRT station in Singapore, with puns in 5 different languages and dialects (a part of it is now published in The New Paper!). Another is turning the development of Japanese emoticons into a research article. ヽ(・∀・)ﾉ
