I am Jade, a self-confessed cinephile and audiophile among other things. After my ambition of becoming a time traveller was thwarted by the throes of reality, I moved to the Internet and have resided here ever since.

I blog from the tiny city-state of Singapore, where I also work full-time in the marketing field. I post original stories here, inspired by Clive Barker and random folks off The New Yorker amongst others. This page began as an attempt to improve my writing. I hope it’s working.

The Ü happens to be my favourite letter in the alphabet. It is true that I am easily amused by things that look like faces. When I am not writing stories or reviews, I enjoy playing riffs and skipping solos on my poorly tuned guitars. A typical good day to me means a great read with Led Zeppelin turned up to 11.

I am likely to trust anyone who likes Iron Maiden.

A picture of me in my natural habitat.

Most days, I…

  • think about the reasons for my existence,
  • enjoy trips, swims, or daydreams,
  • obsess over movies of a man who loves feet and says ‘all right’ a lot,
  • hunt demons and psychoanalyse cannibals.

  1. I was introduced to your blog through a mutual friend of ours, Dennis, who had told me about this girl who lent him “god is not Great”. So here I am, a fellow atheist and admirer of Hitch, fascinated by you and yours words and thoughts, and inspired enough in fact to dabble this set of ten fingers once again at blog-writing.

    Hope to hear from you.


  2. Oops, apparently there is some confusion on my part. It’s a funny story. Dennis lied to me about your lending him the book so that he can escape the moral rebuke he thinks I will give him when I learn that he procured it through piracy and thereby denying the Hitchens estate their rightful royalties. Sorry. Hope I have cleared whatever vacuum of awkwardness and confusion there is.


  3. Seems like you and I, have something in common with “Quentin Tarantino” and his films. I too, am a big hardcore fan of Tarantino and movies in all.

    Jade, you seem interesting and awesome and I am curious to get to know you and your interest in movies, music, or poetry.

    By the way, are you into poetry? curious.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    1. Thanks for dropping by, Charlie! Tarantino is a wonderful eccentric, isn’t he? I wish he would never retire from writing.

      My interests are all over the map. If you have any questions, I’ll be happy to share. And about poetry, I absolutely love it! I’ve dabbled with poetry in the past (posted a few on here). I’d be happy to check out yours. 🙂

      1. Tarantino is eccentric and one of the greatest directors of all time. He inspires me a lot. As a matter of fact, the other day I was watching ‘Django’ and man he always hits his mark and never disappoints. Reservoir Dogs is one of my other favorites by Tarantino. He’s got 2 more movies and he’s calling it quits. It’s sad and I know exactly what you mean. I don’t want him to retire but I do see the mans point.

        I’d very much like to know your other interest.
        So, your into Metal music huh? How long have you been into metal? Are you familiar with the genre ‘Industrial music’?

        1. Agreed, Django Unchained is an amazingly crafted film. Reservoir Dogs and Inglourious Basterds top my personal favourites list, but of course, Tarantino has never made a bad film! 😊

          And yes, I listen to metal, also rock and the blues. Started probably during high school. One of my first favourite bands was actually Nine Inch Nails, so yes, I do love industrial metal! What bands do you enjoy?
