    Fancy meeting up during the Fringe Festival? I'll be joining several other poets for "Words Words Words", a celebration of how words enrich our lives with stories. It's a nice, intimate setup with some pretty cool poets. I have a short 10 minute slot, so I'd love to meet up and get to know you guys. Hope to see you there!

Q: Why did you choose to be based in Penang?
A: I feel a connection to Penang. There is so much of our history hidden in the dilapidated British mansions and between the stone bricks of crumbling colonial walls. There is culture and there is concrete, but most importantly, Art lives here. The scene is exploding and I think Penangites are much more open to appreciating our own cultural heritage, rather than chewing on the bubble-gum pop we insist on importing for some reason. This place inspires my art. So, Penang chose me, really.
