About Me

Hi, my name is Trang. I was born in Hanoi, Vietnam. I have been living in Singapore since I was 15 years old. About myself: - I am inquisitive, sensitive, reflective and introspective. I care about being thoughtful, considerate, truthful, sincere, understanding, accommodating, and sharing authentically. - To me, it comes down to inner peace, being your natural self, expressing your essence and potential, engaging, connecting, caring, and sharing. These are the moments that would flash back and warm the heart. - I appreciate having personal space to retreat to and recharge when needed. - These days, nothing instills in me more peace and nourishment than nature and greenery, and when watching videos of gardening and life in the countryside. My story: 2 years ago, I quit my full-time corporate job in Singapore to take a personal break. Many things did not feel right at that point, with work and personal relations, and I felt stuck in, living by the design of a modern life that became personally unfulfilling. โ€œHow can I have such a big chunk of my life that feels so impersonal?โ€ was what I felt with work. It had been a process internally to reach that point of decision to break out of the โ€œsecureโ€ and familiar template and blueprint, but it was freeing and absolutely needed for my life. At that time of leaving, I needed to leave Singapore and go back to my own country. It was in the middle of the pandemic. The new journey started with a rescue flight and a 3-week quarantine, right into the culmination of the summer heat in a basic facility. That made for a personal story. Currently, I have been on a 2-year break. It had definitely not been my original plan, but natural progression brought me here. In the beginning, I generously gave myself a 7-month timeframe, made possible by tagging the deadline to my birthday. My key intention was to have a safe personal space to resolve my feelings and shift my path. It has been a journey of still taking needed time and space to explore further what I feel compelled to, in order to arrive at somewhere and something suiting for myself. It is also a freeing experience to enable myself to spend my time naturally, how I feel like and need, which manifests in a lot of singing and journalling among other personal interests. Along the way were many instances of forfeiting the urges of settling myself into โ€œcomfortโ€ options like a โ€œsafetyโ€ master's degree or regular employment, and the anxious urges of family members, such as โ€œArenโ€™t you afraid of a lapse in your CV?โ€. But continuity in the CV doesnโ€™t matter for my life. I guess the drive that sustained me was how much I hadnโ€™t felt right when I left, so I kept on the journey of following what I felt I needed at each stage. The 2-year break was invaluable to me because I feel like I live my life. I went to search for what I needed and had a lot of needed space to feel and be myself. I have had many new exposures grounded in reality, and so real-life experiences, being back home and venturing out to new environments. It is not trite to say it is life-opening to go out there. My takeaway has been more inner grounding and the capacity to make choices for myself and to go back to living more naturally (less forced engagement and less self-pressure). I also get to be informed about living in my home country and the state of its inhabited environment, and how it is not for me.
