This is where I will attempt to explain myself.

Any minute now.

Okay, here you go:

I am not going to try to be very clever as I make this list.

I live in Hong Kong most of the time.

I admire one-trick ponies. I am not one.

I think my Mum is the coolest woman alive.

My husband’s name is Tom. He is pretty awesome: check him out  

We have been married for 12 years.

I dream of writing and illustrating children’s books.

And reading Philosophy.

And carving wood.

And having my paintings hung in lift lobbies and fancy office buildings.

And running a marathon.

And going back to get my R.A.D Ballet Ele grade.

I have two babies. Layla Belle is 4, Dylan Thomas is 2. If you put Dylan’s name surname-first it is a sentence: Read Dylan Thomas.

Me and my Sister-in-law run Handmade Hong Kong. She is in my top five coolest women category.

My Cantonese is not as good as it should be. Neither is my Mandarin.

I think video games are a waste of time.

I wish Oxford was on the MTR line. We have a family home there and it is my favourite city.

I am an introvert.

I like Capoeria but I doubt I will be able to pursue it any further now that I’m 33.

Needlework calms me down.

My favourite movie is Castaway.

I like people with pointy elfin ears.

I also like people who look a bit like monkeys but this music video totally freaks me out: this one

I am half Chinese and half Welsh. When I meet people they usually think I’m Spanish because of my name. When I take my son out people stare at us. I think they are wondering if I am the maid.

I am an imperfectionist. Zero eye for detail. THERE WILL BE TYPOS.

I am not as patient as I would like to be. I DO NOT LABOUR OVER POSTS FOR HOURS.

I am not afraid of failure.

I am fascinated by giants.

When I was 17 I successfully ollied up one step on my skateboard.


I hate it when people bite down when they are pulling their fork out of their mouth.

I have learned to play & subsequently abandoned the following instruments: piano, cello, saxaphone, harmonica and bass guitar.

I still sing and play acoustic but not very well at all. But that doesn’t stop me.

I am somewhat attracted to the Amish lifestyle.

I am a closet wearer of eyeglasses. When I put them on I feel clever. Something like Homer Simpson doing his taxes.

I have gotten off two buses because someone farted really badly.

I like country music.

I want another tattoo. BUT NOT IN MY MOUTH.

I’m really crap at talking on the phone. Don’t call me. I’m better in writing.

I am going ahead with this website on the assumption that if you don’t want to read it, you won’t, and if you do, then, hurray :)

I am going to go to bed now.
