Greetings! Welcome to kelvinsmusings.com!
I’m Kelvin from sunny Singapore where I live with my lovely wife and two boys, born 2009 and 2011.
In this blog www.kelvinsmusings.com, I muse about…
1. …my unfinished journey as a husband & stay home father of two sons (the youngest with autism),
2. … values I hold dear, like those involving parenting & family, and how to advocate for them to the wider community,
3. …the ups & downs of my writing life, and
4. …issues dealing with work, education (I teach part-time), society & life.
(A fuller explanation about my blog’s genesis and purpose can be found here)
I’ve been approached regularly to speak on issues involving fatherhood, family, & society (some arguably controversial!).
In addition, I’ve also appeared on Podcasts and Radio/TV programmes, namely:
1. Singapore’s Institute of Policy Studies‘ podcast IPS On Diversity (Season 2 Episode 2, published 28 Dec 2021), &
2. national broadcaster Mediacorp‘s parenting podcast Hey Mama! (Season 2 Episode 4, published 26 Oct 2021) and radio programmes…
…Weekend Life (13 Jun 2021),
…Money Mind (13 Feb 2020) &
…Night Life (30 Jan 2020)
as well as TV programme Talking Point in…

> Nanyang Technological University‘s Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (Sep 2021), and
