She recently wrote the script for A Singaporean in Paris, a cabaret starring Hossan Leong, which is being produced by Sing'Theatre and will be performed at the DBS Arts Centre in April. Additionally, she is directing the voices for a new children's cartoon and managing the dynamics of living with two teenagers and a small dog.
