All about la Salsachica

Passionate about dancing, spend way too much time dancing and surfing the net and learning new languages. Apparently I’m a polyglot. I travel around Singapore in search of delicious food and are sharing some of the places I’ve been to in this blog. I tell it as it is, when it’s sedap, then I’ll say it’s sedap/delicious/yummy /magnifique etc.. Like others, I have my good and bad days. Been on the search for happiness, have yet to find it. Although, have hypothesized that happiness is but a relative state that may be achieved through acceptance of current situation. To test this hypothesis, I will conduct an experiment with a localised test subject, i.e me. I have multiple jobs which basically revolves in me not sleeping much or being in one country for too long. I like to write in my journal and sing out loud at 3 am in the morning. I dance around in my room and fall asleep in the wee wee hours of the morning. I live on two to three hours of sleep and yet remain hyper throughout the day😛
If you’re wondering about the name, I studied classical ballroom since I was 17, won awards for it and then went on to study latin dances like bachata and salsa in Australia.  I used to teach dance merengue, salsa and rumba in college. I have stopped dancing professionally since coming back to Singapore, and am still in search of that missing person to partner me across the dance floor, in the meantime I seek tantalising creations in Singapore and wherever I travel.

    I would love to learn salsa from you one day. Melbourne Docklands has this awesome salsa club I used to frequent to drool and admire at those really good dancers that never seem to stay in one spot for too long🙂

    No worries, I’ll teach you if perchance we were to meet one day. I used to dance salsa from Mondays to Fridays, a different club/lounge for every day of the work week, the number of shoes I broke the heels off and bought were too many😛 aah those were the days twirling across the dancefloor in the arms of someone🙂 Saturdays were in R&B clubs and I usually only sneaked back to college early Sunday morning😛

  4. You sound like a person who likes to have fun! Hope you do find so much happiness. Have you thought about looking for God? That’s worked for me…

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I’m a Muslim and focusing on strengthening my knowledge in Islam and my belief in Allah has been making me happier everyday. I guess it’s time I need to update this old about page.

  5. Dancing is one of my passions too; although, I have not done it in far too long.

      To me dancing is an escape avenue to express emotions bottled up inside, put the music on loud & try dancing alone in your room, it’s liberating! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

      Hello Becky! Thanks!😀 it definitely would be the icing! I’ve been writing blogs for a while, but I have a tendency to forget to write a post every couple of months hahaha I don’t know how others have the discipline to churn out posts everyday or every few hours, or maybe I’m just a slacker hahahaha Thanks for following!
