About Me

Hello! I’m a tax consultant by day, a freelance writer by night. I hail from the metropolitan city of Kuala Lumpur. Do drop me a note should you come visit!

I’ve been blogging since 2007, though Life of a Working Adult was only born somewhere at the end of 2020. I was encouraged to blog when I was younger as an outlet to express creativity and as a place to voice out my opinions to the larger community.

On a more serious note, I have over 6 years of working experience in corporate tax compliance, and over 3 years of project management and system implementation. I am versatile and multi- skilled, yet amenable when called for. I thrives in challenging situations.
