Hi, I’m Valerie.

Living in Singapore · I love music, despite not being able to play any musical instrument · I wish I had more time to read · I daydream a lot, but I don’t see it as a bad thing · Being able to sleep in is wonderful · I’m a perfectionist at times · I want to travel as much as I can; the world is such a beautiful place · I don’t want to stop learning

“Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
– Dr Seuss


About this site.

Tokaikko (都会っ子, pronounced “toh-kai-ko”) means city girl (or city child) in Japanese. I guess it’s pretty apt for someone who has lived in a city-state her whole life. This domain was registered on 24 Feb 2010, after deciding that I should probably move on from my old domain, sweet-desire.net (29 May 2001 – 2010).

All my old posts up to 2014 have been archived here.
