Communication Design School of Design Singapore

“A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.” With that said, I will try everything once, and if I like it, maybe twice, which is probably why I studied the art of communication design twice. Or try the same thing thrice, you know because “third time’s a charm”.  What about the fourth time? I do not know yet, four seems a bit crowded. I love humour but have a huge problem with confidence, so the humour usually ends with a lot of ??? I love to create but I catch myself zoning under, into the abyss before deciding to create again, but I can assure you, I am motivated, give me whatever task and I will finish it, jack of all trades.

During the pandemic, we were stripped away off our understanding of what normalcy is and we felt as though our senses were threatened. With the mask, hiding half of our faces disrupting taste and the constant instruction to sanitise then clean our hands etc., the question I seek is what is our five senses now? One of the senses that I feel was affected, was touch.

No shaking each other hands when meeting, refrain yourself from touching door handles, use elbows instead. When touch becomes obsolete, do we develop a new sense?

Perhaps our hands might develop a sense of loneliness or independence.


what if touch becomes obsolete...

Shameless is a social movement that defines being shameless as not only being brazen and bold but also about being brazen & bold during moments where silence seems like the most comfortable option. Our intention is to encourage you to look shame in the eye and not be defeated by its presence, instead walk over it and towards your purpose, while saying “Bye shame!”

The idea came after learning of my Bugis heritage and the Bugis-Makassar philosophy behind the word siri’, a term that means either shame or pride. The teachings of the past that have trickled into today’s society made me question if shame should threaten the way we live.

shame, shame, shame

Here’s a toast to being shameless 🥂✨ Where we witness shame is typically online and in some circumstance, offline too. The excerpt in the beginning of the video was a clip from Monica Lewinsky’s The Price of Shame, where she shared her experience in 1998, where she was the “patient zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” when the internet was beginning to gain traction. Today, the kind of public shame she faced has become constant with the progression of Internet and introduction of social media. To that we say fuck shame, for taking years of us and it’s about time we reclaim our name and purpose!


Humiliation is an emotion that transcend the surface of your skin, it goes deeper into your heart, living you feeling lost and helpless. It eats up every living bone in your body, leaving you vulnerable.


Shameless Manifesto

No telling me what I should be. No reminding me of how to live, to act, to dress. Oh, no convincing me that my past is what disgrace me. Because I am shameless. No telling me what pride or dignity I have to uphold. No, you won’t define my success just to fit me into your mould Because me, I am shameless No I will not be damned by shame Just because of what my predecessor says No, I will not heed the dead decays, Because me, I am shameless No this is not blame, This is my purpose Now is time to reclaim my name Because yes I am shameless.

Was it shame that I brought?

I feel no shame.
