She holds a Master of Architecture, but prefers to build castles in the air and bridges to other cultures. She has lived and worked in Singapore, the United States, the Philippines and India as various avatars; architect, editor, branding-marketing professional, and volunteer English teacher. She is married to Benjamin Yap and they have 8 plants together. She currently resides in Singapore.
