Wit & Wisdom

Welcome to my site! I am a Singaporean storyteller who mostly shares traditional Asian stories in a dynamic and entertaining style.
In this upgraded version of my website I’ve provided
My own telling draws on my experience as a drama teacher, performing improvised comedy, devising visual theatre with the hearing-impaired, and my love of poetry.
I look forward to being of service to you - as a teller, trainer or resource - whenever you need a story to inform, inspire or celebrate your community or organisation.

PENANG INTERNATIONAL KIDS STORYTELLING FESTIVAL 2014
Wow - this festival just gets better and better. A very strong line up this year saw me reunite with Jen & Nat Whitman, Uncle Fat from Taiwan (who was with us in Chennai in August) Kak Sue from Perak and Mama Tok from KL ( malaysia knows how to treat and develop its own tellers - unlike Singapore!!) Beatriz Montero (Spain) was her bubbly dynamic self, and new friends included Alicia Dongjoo (Seoul) and Mathew Friday (from UK via Guangzhou!) I was thrilled that Hope & Jade (a.k.a Abby L Kahei & Gemia Foo) who I am mentoring, were able to make their debut telling tandem-style in Mandarin.
I would like to thank you for your fantastic storytelling session yesterday at Our
Lady of Good Counsel Primary. I saw what you did and am very impressed. I saw the
kids thoroughly enjoyed your session too. I really like the way you
made your session so interactive.
