What a spectacular year it has been. I couldn’t have it any better if I had planned it myself. I finally, finally, walked out from an unauthentic relationship. By dealing with the pain, it has taught me so much
- about myself,
- what I want for my life and
- what I am capable of.
Most importantly, for the first time in my life, I had
This year, I set the intention of focusing on building my reputation as an empowerment coach for women. I was blessed to be on several podcast interviews, mostly already launched. A few to look forward to in the new year.
I made the terrifying decision to come clean. With my imperfection, the insecurities that haunted me since I was a child, in the hope that it will bring comfort and inspiration to others who might feel lesser than they really are.
It was scary to put myself out there, wounded, naked, imperfect in the middle of the arena and say this is me, the real me. Everytime when I listen to my own podcast interviews, I freaked out, still disbelieving that I bared it all and feeling the extreme discomfort all over my body. But I chose to sat with it and
I chose to be happy in my discomfort,
staying committed to my truth and my authenticity.
I finally went to Ongkrong Primary School, in Cambodia, to visit the children.
For Our Children have helped raised S$12,000 last year to chip in to the rebuilding of the school. It was magical, seeing and experiencing the innocence of the children.
It burnt in me the desire to continue doing what we set out to do, raising funds to build schools in third world countries. We must take care of our children.
I went on a soul pilgrimage and took out warrior goddess training with Heather Ash Amara.
It was most definitely, one soul of a trip.
I went in fear, in hopes, alone,
with no certainty of what is going to happen.
And I came home.
Reborn. On fire.
The trip ended up in a book on Amazon.
From Zero to Shakti.
It depicted my crazy adventures in Sedona. On Amazon.
I finally fulfilled my childhood promise to myself.
Who can be more blessed?
For whatever mysterious reasons, I avoided dance, the love of my life, for the longest time. I never understood why. It hurt me not to dance. But somehow, I cannot bring myself to it.
This year, I finally took baby steps to move myself to do what gave me joy. I went for my first Bachata World Festival
and I am starting to go for more social dance nights. My heart still feels nervous but it has started to sing.
I am surrounded by very loving people. Driven, passionate and loyal. They are like a protective invisible love shield that propels me forward in life. It has been a very fulfilling and productive year.
So much lies ahead. So much more to do. So much more to do. My vision burns on.
The uprising of one million Shaktis-on-Fire.
I look forward to meeting everyone of you.
Let’s burn brighter with our fierce love and passion.

Review on Amazon –
‘The author is very brave, disclosing her personal challenges and the solutions she created. I admire her unselfish sharing, and her courage in undertaking her personal quest.
She traveled a long distance to a special place, and even braved a fire walk–something difficult to imagine. She tells her story in an absorbing way. This book is charming.’
