Okay, so I have never seen snow before. Until I came over the England.
My very first winter I spent it in NY. I’ve never been to NY before then. I decided to take two weeks and go during those winter months. The funny thing about NY is, if you don’t really know anyone there, it can feel really lonely. I remember sitting by myself in Time Square, 2 degrees without wind, real feel -2 degrees, eating Tasty Delite, watching the people just walk pass me and thinking how lonely it must be if you came here alone. The wonderful thing about that trip however was that I realised two of my dancer friends were also in NY at that time. Now I didn’t know them well but there is something about kindred people in a foreign land that just bonds you. And bless their beautiful souls, they took me under their wing and accompanied me everywhere. And I mean, everywhere. Eventually we stopped in front of NY ballet because I always wanted to be a ballerina when I was young and my friends took that photo of me. I always remembered that shot because it showed me the nature of people’s souls. And time isn’t a factor in friendship, but love is. Thank you Marcus Foo and Andy Chai!!
Second picture was taken when I was in Scotland. That’s a screen shot of a show called Swinging into Christmas and it was filmed and broadcasted on BBC national TV. To be able to perform in another country made me hell proud of my own. Especially since I was the ONLY asian singing and taking main stage. It would be nice to see more south east asians in the mix performing.

My first winter experience when I was 9 seems to be the most memorable one. My mother and I went to Nepal on a trekking expedition in the Himalayas to the base camp of Mount Annapurna.The scenic trails up the mountain were absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking but I will always remember how I would hate to tie my shoelaces because my fingers were so cold and numb. I don’t think I showered as much as I should during the three-week expedition. It was recorded that I was the youngest non-Nepalese to reach the base camp then. The other thing I recall quite clearly was on the last few days in Kathmandu where the swimming pool at Hotel Vaishali was closed and covered in ice. Not that I was looking forward for a swim. Three years later, we went back to Nepal and trekked up to the base camp of Mount Everest. It was much colder.

I spent 7 years working in Holland. And everyone who has spent a winter there will tell you how mercilessly bleak it can be. I was in full anticipation about my first winter in Holland. I had all my winter wear planned and colour coordinated. A certain coat must go with a particular pair of winter boots and gloves. How exciting is that?! But when that minus 16 degree celsus winter cold hit. Reality had me wearing my bathrobe underneath my jacket and I was all layered and puffed up like marshmellow man. It was survival over vanity.
Winter was cold and warm at the same time in Holland. I remember biking to a friend’s place for a new year’s eve party and sort of got stranded in a park because all the roads had frozen over. An impromptu party broke out and everyone opened their wine which was meant for the parties they were going. Complete strangers were bonding on an unforgetable new year’s eve.

Winters in Europe… The temperature is low and the light time is minimal, you’ve got to do as much as possible when there is light.
And wear as much as you possibly can and go into as many shops with heater as possible!
But there is a sense of romanticism in this season. A mystical feeling. To me, it is a season with bountiful possibility within the self. As we are often set to be home, and be thinking. I always feel that i am more creative when it is winter.
