It is no secret that I am a Disney lover. The Little Mermaid has always been my favourite ever since I was six years old. Mulan became a very close second favourite once it came out when I was thirteen. Like most Asian-rooted kids, I already knew about the story of Hua Mulan. It was a myth that was told to (Asian) children, since there are not any Asian fairy tales (that I know of).

To the moon & stars, infinity x infinity
Ever since I was a little girl, the moon and the stars have always fascinated me. There is something magical about the darkness, a clear sky, shiny stars and bright moon. Looking up above in the middle of the night is one of my favourite things to do. I often get lost in thought when I look up at the sky.

Soundtrack of my life
Music is a universal language. It often expresses feelings, thoughts and emotions that words cannot expres. This gave me an idea to start a project with my students and the outcome of it overwhelmed my heart in an unexpected way.
