Random Facts about Me


I have lived on 3 continents and visited 56 countries. Here I am in South Africa, a beautiful and complex country which has parallels with Malaysia. 

My metabolism is the envy of my friends – I can eat like a horse without putting on much weight. Here’s what I had for lunch the other day.

I have phenomenal powers of concentration and can sit at my desk for hours on end. This is how I managed to write the body of the text for The Woman who Breathed Two Worlds in a year. It’s also why I burn holes in my jeans.


I adore pandas. Maybe it’s because I look like one (black hair streaked with white, just less fluffy).
