That username that came to stick...

I was probably 14 or 15 when I arrived at a username for a now-extinct social media site and, unfortunately, it was Jundaloop.  Like everyone else born in my generation, once you've established a lousy nickname online, it sort of sticks forever. I'm now 22 and heading to get my Masters and I'm still, Junda-fucking-loopto most people.

For the last 3 years, I'd been splitting my time between my home in Singapore and the beautiful city of London, where I've graduated with a Bachelor's in Urban Planning, Design and Management from UCL Bartlett. Regrettably, I have been really messy about chronicling my countless holidays, school work and gastronomical adventures. My massive collection of essays, photos, videos and (rare) audio notes have scattered themselves between expensive notebooks, the 1TB hard disk I own, my Macbook and rolls of undeveloped/ destroyed film.

Henceforth, as I embark on my graduate studies in New York, I will be exclusively publishing dorky photos and writing for friends and family on this domain, aptly titled, 'Jundaloop'. It may just be that I'm getting overly excited at the thought of working and studying in my favorite city in the entire world.. but I hope this space will help organize all my thoughts and media.

NB: I cannot promise anything thoughtful or cryptic but I can write truthfully. And shamelessly, all photos will be taken by me because at some point, this hobby in photography needs to get semi-legit and hopefully the practice will help.
