Two weeks ago, I had a message that popped up in my inbox.
My name is Amanda and I’m a second-year student at NTU’s Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information. I came across several blogs and posts about minimalism in Singapore recently, including this page, and I have to say that such a lifestyle really piqued my interest and intrigued me because it is something that is still so rarely practised in Singapore and a way of life that really requires so much discipline!
I am actually really interested in writing about the rising trend of minimalism in Singapore as part of my journalism module. I was wondering if it would be possible for me to schedule an interview with you, or with any other members who might be keen to share their experiences of a minimalist lifestyle? I wouldn’t mind travelling anywhere that would be convenient for you!
