I’m a Gen-Y, single female, Singaporean Teochew, with some Peranakan ancestory, although I know , let alone practise, very little about the traditional culture of both. Fom my personal interpretation of Christianity, which is one of love and justice, I support the rights of homosexuals/bisexuals/trangenders, women, children, disadvantaged people, animals. I’m pro-religious-freedom, pro-choice, pro-contraceptives, pro-ES-cell research.
My educational background is in the area of stem cell/developmental biology (sex determination/skeletal development)/genetics/molecular & cell biology/technology development/ etc, for which I’ve just completed my PhD requirements (yes the project spanned all these fields.)
If you ask me what I AM (in the professional context), I would best call myself a Hedonistic Systems Voyeur. I love observing and analysing systems — in biology, in society, in theology etc etc. In my spare time, I also do advocacy work, policy work, public education, and attend theological college classes

I do not accept any paid advertisements. I do recommend stuff I truly believe in and support, so I welcome any recommendations. However I do not recommend stuff simply for favours.
As a rule of thumb, I allow every relevant comment, whether or not I agree/like the comment. Stuff that I spam or delete would be the clear cut advertisements (of all sorts) that clearly have no relevance to the posts, comments where the writer specifically asks for confidentiality, and emails directed to me personally that are irrelevant to the post
