About

This website was officially created on 20 December 2010 but I have been blogging on and off since my early school days, while keeping offline diaries at the same time (but not anymore). Its last design overhaul was in October 2015.

Besides writing and working in the news industry, my other interests include my rodent pets, reading, eating, travelling, binge-watching movies and shows, snapping photos of all of that and rambling on about my life.

Why twiinklex?

Unfortunately, there is no exciting tale behind my online moniker other than I used to be in the typical tween phase and used ‘twiinkle’ for all my usernames. Then my Twitter account got hacked and I couldn’t retrieve it nor the username, so I simply added an ‘x’ behind ‘twiinkle’ and the rest is history.

How you do you pronounce twiinklex?

Contrary to popular belief, it is simply pronounced ‘twinkle’. The ‘x’ is silent and serves no other purpose as explained above.

Why rainbow sheep?

I love rainbows and I love sheep then it kinda stuck.

What kind of blog is this? Food, travel, lifestyle?

None of the above. I do not consider it a blog. It is simply a not-so-personal space for me to share bits of my life in the form of photos, thoughts, pop culture references and fangirling.

What cameras are the photos here taken with?

Mostly my iPhone 6S unless otherwise specified. Before Oct 2015, I used a Samsung Galaxy S3. I sold my digital camera eons ago because I hardly used it.

What social media platforms are you on?

I’m currently active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.

What happened to Dear Love?

Alive and kicking but not a priority at the moment. Its heydays of a quote account are quite over. I’m focusing on other things (mostly offline) at the moment.

How old are you / where are you from / where do you live?

I would tell you but then I’ll have to kill you.
