About Christina v2.7

About Services Contact

I started this site in 2021 as a way to chronicle my learnings and experiences. And also as a back-up plan in case dementia decides to say hello too damn early.

Join me as we journey towards personalising our lives - to live, think and connect better.

A work in progress

  • As of 2021, we are at Christina v2.7 - with each software update happening annually. and a major one happening once a decade
  • Always aspiring to have wider reach, stronger and faster bandwidth. But stubbornly in a personalised way, that feels right and true.
  • Still figuring out a product-market fit to sink her roots in. Encouragingly, some early adopters have been corporate innovation, foodtech and social entrepreneurship. Desire to also gain the fancy of corporate sustainability - am looking for beta testers.
  • Still in the local market of Singapore - that being said, internationalisation aspirations are certainly in the pipeline in the next 3-5 years.
  • Some unresolved glitches include strange quirks and slight impatience with inaction - but overall, an evolving yet reliable product that delivers.
