About Dewdrops


“Dewdrop Notes” is a name derived from my novel Like A Dewdrop (1993). The concept of dewdrops is one that fascinates me. They are so beautiful yet so transient. Helpless when the sun rises to burn them off, they reappear the next day. And the same cycle of events follow.

I’ve often wondered. What if we humans were like dewdrops? What if we could end this life and start a new life to correct all our past mistakes and grasp all the wasted opportunities? Will we really be able to lead the perfect life with the benefit of perfect hindsight from a previous life? Or will we make a new set of mistakes, or worse, make the same mistakes over and over again? Are we like dewdrops that come and go over and over again without really changing our nature?

Mostly socio-political in theme, “Dewdrop Notes” has also been described as a philosophical blog. Whatever its current slant, my aim is to present issues which are close to my heart. I could talk about recently implemented policies, social issues or the arts in Singapore. I could also talk about the political situation in the region. As a creative writer, I believe that real works of art can only come about when people challenge the norm or be allowed to “misbehave” to a reasonable extent. Of course, my viewpoints are personal and subjective. You won’t get rich by following my advice, but if you have the time, do feel free to discuss.
