I Am Answered (Excerpt Republished)

An excerpt from my first piece for ISSUE #1: LOSS, “I Am Answered“, was republished in Baccarat Magazine Malaysia’s August 2014 edition, accompanied by gorgeous photographs taken by Tan Lee Kuen. I originally wrote the piece as a part of my Honours year in 2011, an autobiographical extension of my exploration of death, memory, identity, and the trail built between presence and absence. I’m happy to see it reach a larger audience, and still hope one day to return to more parts of this story, which at its heart, is yet another letter to my mother.
