Hi, I’m Sel!

The Universe is made of stories, not of atoms.

I blog about my adventures as a Harvard College freshman/international student in the US, in crunchy, sun-baked stories & through candid, messy reflections.

I’m Chinese by heritage, New Zealander by birth, and grew up in a multicultural metropolis as a true-blue Singaporean. In this small space are moments in my life — flashing snippets and fraying vignettes alike — narrated honestly, outrageously, or hopefully by blurring that marvelous boundary between reality and fiction.

I write on everything the universe shepherds into my sight and any fragment of it that fascinates me endlessly: travels, choices, books, philosophy, food, dramas, fashion, adulting, cultural clashes, chasing dreams, and growing up (inevitably 😦 ).

Thanks for being here and allowing my stories to enter your life. Have happy adventures!

Lots of Love,
