These few years, I've visited places, trying to find the meaning of life, the meaning in living.

But isn't it strange? How we tend to search everywhere for what we think would complete us. It is puzzling, how we tend to think that whatever we need is just beyond our reach.

Then, I realised that people everywhere - from Suzhou to Sheffield, from Phnom Penh to Hanoi - we're all searching for our personal callings.

Yet, what we've been searching for might be right before or right within us.

This blog details my experiences, as well as that of the people around me.

P.S. the blog's called Artxy because it's a fusion of the word 'art' and my initials 'XY'. It's also because my friends have the tendency to go "ARRR, TXY, what did you just say?!" all too often.

P.S.S. I'm fascinated with the beauty that is the visual arts. To date, I've participated in the following exhibitions and competitions:

o Feb'13 Regrets for Dreams at Cinnamon College, National University of Singapore (Exhibited)
o Oct'11 Art Garage! by The Arts House (Exhibited)
o Oct'11 On Dreaming at Central Library, National University of Singapore (Exhibited)
o July'11 Squares Invasion by Instinc Gallery (Exhibited)
o Dec'10 USP Visual Art/Photo Competition by University Scholars Program (Top three)
o June'04 Singapore Discovery Center On-The-Spot Art Competition (First prize)

  1. Hello :) We are rather alike. I'm also studying Chemistry (currently), I love to draw (especially in the past) and I love writing. Writing in English is my strong suit :) But you seem to be doing better though.
    Nice meeting you by the way :)

  2. Hello! There was an article you published on gender inequality quite awhile back. I'm sure it was taken from a KS bull article written in 2011. Did you seek permission from the author before you published the post?

    1. Hi, Jarett, sorry on many levels. I didn't see your comment as there were 7k spam comments even though I've turned on the spam filter. Also, I rarely visit this blog, maybe once or twice every few months.

      My apologies for putting up the KS bull article. I used to put up random articles which I liked on an old blog many years ago. Quite some time ago, I imported all the content from the old blog in and didn't remove the articles. It is my fault for not doing so and I will remove all these articles.

      Thank you :)

  3. Thank you for sharing your analysis of My Country My People. It is enlightening.

  4. Would love to know more about the Weak Anthropocentrism piece! Please let me know if you can send original

    1. Hi, sorry, just saw your comment. I wrote that piece and did not publish it anywhere. Thank you for reading it.
