My name is Catherine Shi, but people call me Cat :) I was born on the glorious day- 4th October 1999 (that means I'm 16 this year!) I am a Canadian baby that was bound to have a sleek Canadian accent and play hockey, but only spent the first four years of my life as a senseless toddler in Canada. Then, my family decided to move to Singapore, a tiny country found in South-East Asia. And here I am. As a Singaporean holding both Canadian and Singaporean passports! (hehe)
#1 lesson from Cat: Life gives you blessings in disguise :)
I am the eldest child in my family of five, two cute little sisters and two dearest parents that loves me endlessly. I am lucky, I must say :) However don't get me wrong when I say I am a Canadian baby, I'm a legit Asian girl. My Mother is from Indonesia while my Father is from China (hence the strong asian genes), but how great is the power of love eh? How two souls can find each other despite the distance. Heart-warming.
Now, about my hobbies! I enjoy sleeping and eating- greatly similar in comparison with a pig, but! I actually have a passion for arts :) I love drawing, sketching, painting... anything that is related to art really. I can sacrifice my meals and sleep just to dedicate time for my artworks. Additionally, I like to read as much as I love to write. I aspire to write out my very own novel one day, and publish it :)
I feel that through writing, sketching and drawing, is where I really get to express myself.
See that's the thing about me. I'm a really really really awkward turtle in this bustling society. I don't usually express myself clearly to others, well only to people I'm close with. But in general, my thoughts are all filtered up in my head that the words I speak out only carry like 30% of what I really want to say. Sad story. But nonetheless, I'm still a really really really fun person to hang out with (really!), if you're kind that is :)
I'm currently studying in Singapore Sports School, yes it is a legit school that focuses on both studies and sports. And I'm proud to be part of the school :) If you were guessing which sport I participate in, get ready to be wrong. I'm actually a shooter! Taking part in the women 10 meters air- rifle shooting event. I started shooting when I was only 12, which is quite an old age to pick up a new sport, however, it is better late than never ;) I have been shooting competitively these few years, and made many lovely friends along the journey. I wouldn't deny that despite all the rigorous and strenuous training, the whole experience of shooting was fun and memorable.
Yet, with this year being my graduating year, it would mean that I have to put in more effort for my national exams :( Putting it in a positive light, I am embarking onto another whole new chapter in my life story! How amazing. Studying in a new institution, meeting new people and making new friends...yeah the list goes on :) And that is why I have decided to start blogging. I'd like to write and share my life experiences with the people who would actually visit my blog._.
But if you're still reading up to here, I really appreciate your time spent reading up on my blogs :) and maybe we could be friends! :D another fact about me is that I love making new friends,
so hey! why not? I'm already squeezing out from my turtle shell!
With great anticipation,
