A history-cum-geography buff from young, I regularly research, explore, take pictures and write on little known or forgotten sites, events and people based locally or abroad. I hope my humble contributions in this area will ensure that their memories are not forgotten by future generations, especially in our ever changing and highly urbanised world. Also, certain individuals and organisations are mentioned, which I hope their charitable acts or achievements can help to inspire readers to learn and pursue similar interests in the future.

I welcome and will only respond to bonafide (not anonymous) feedback that are civil and constructive according to the spirit and aspirations of Wikipedia. As my priorities are devoted to research and writing for Wikipedia during my limited free time, my apologies if my response is slow at times. I will try to assume good faith for every edit on my works, but will not take in kindly on unjustified edits (no prior edit summary or discussion), edit wars (See example here. Read the rules here) and vandalism. Such acts may result in a swift warning, being blocked for extended period or even a permanent ban. Do think carefully whether your actions will sully your reputation or alma mater's (those claiming academic credentials) or lead to unwholesome karma that one has to bear later. If you are a newbie, do check out the policies and guidelines first or test edits using a sandbox.

If you find any of my articles is 'Good Article' potential, feel free to nominate and wikify them if necessary to meet the necessary requirements for its entry. Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to thank senior editors, administrators and fellow SGpedians for improving, supporting and defending my works all these while. Thanks for dropping by!
