Singapore: City of Colour

Favourite moments from my recent Singapore trip.

Singapore was one of those places I might consider visiting if I had a layover, especially with the new billion dollar remake of the aiport. And to be frank, it was never on the top of my travel list. However, I now have family living there (my older brother), and as a graduation trip, I thought it would be nice to spend time with my family so I took my parents and little brother there. We spent most of the trip in Singapore, and escaped to Malaysia for a long weekend.

I didn’t really have many high expectations, nor did I plan much. I knew Singapore was awesome for food, but what else was there? However, I was pleasantly surprised by Singapore. It’s a beautiful city, full of culture and colour as evidenced by the diverse food choices and ornate religious buildings from every religion at every corner. Whether you are just here for a layover, or on a holiday for a couple of days, here are some of my favourite moments from my 5 day trip in Singapore.

Moving from China to Australia at a young age gave him a slow start but through hard work and perseverance, he ended up getting a top ATAR and finished with a Commerce/Law degree , which is a tick in most Asian parents’ books. My little brother, still in high school, is a little lost and demotivated as most 16 year old boys would be about life, but helps around the house. He’s looking to pursue engineering at university, so again, another tick.

My Experience as a PM Intern at Atlassian

Reposted from Medium in January 2018.

Last year in November, I joined Atlassian as a Product Management intern on the Platform team. The first few months have been a hell of a ride, and evidently, I enjoyed it enough to stay on as an Associate Product Manager. In this blog post, I try to convey a few unique aspects about this crazy tech company that I noticed within the first few months of my time here.
