I am a true blue born-and-bred Singaporean, absolutely proud of my beloved country. I frequently bring my overseas friends to the various spots not found on travel maps, and also bring them on educational tours in Buddha Tooth Relic Temple & Museum. They have all left Singapore with a deeper appreciation of the history and culture of this tiny red dot. My training as a museum guide in The Peranakan Museum in Singapore comes in handy for organization and presentation of this Buddha Tooth Relic Temple & Museum tour.

At the same time, I am a Yoga Therapist and Meditation Teacher and many of my students have recovered from physical & emotional discomfort and many more students are staying healthy from my yoga classes. I chose Botanic Gardens for the Yoga session, my other program, as it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, providing tourists with a floral eye feast and a magnificent environment for Yoga with nature.

WithLocals is a great avenue to combine my passion and my love for my country within the same activity. My overseas' friends touched & satisfied look when they leave my country is the experience I wish to share with friends through WithLocals."
