Formerly a journalist and writer from Malaysia, currently a teacher in London. I live with my husband and toddler in South East London, and am on a low-consumption, no-shopping challenge this year. I’m journaling it all to replace the hours I used to spend on evil sites like Amazon.com, and to express any angst arising from this journey towards a sustainable lifestyle. As this is a personal blog, please excuse the cussing language, mushy crap heartfelt analysis and ranting passionate outbursts.
