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.

ADULT & KID STORYTELLING WORKSHOPS

I had a hugely enjoyable time with 20 adults (including library volunteers, parents, corporate trainer, a Storyline member) at Marine Parade Library on the 22nd. During our 2 hours, I shared stories in a variety of ways and then got the participants practising their own storytelling skills, before teaching them a piece of paper-craft magic that adds a delightful surprise to any story with a transformation (think ugly duckling turning into a swan, Cinderella from rags-to-ballgown).  One Mum came with her 12 yr old daughter and commented it was a wonderful bonding session as they told stories to each other! (Note this is NOT a session for young kids to come to listen to but a practical workshop.  Kids aged 8-12 are welcome to the kids workshops.)   



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.
