About Joanna Hor
Joanna firmly believes that life is too short to make long-term plans. Everyday, she is learning to cling less tightly to things here and looks forward to the day she will meet her Lord. In the meantime, she tries to live her life to the fullest by enjoying the relationships God has given her, with hopes that those around her will come to know Him too someday. While her likes and dislikes have changed over the years, her love for potato (in any form) remains unchanged.

But that’s exactly what Ms Esther Ang did when she heeded God’s call three years ago. She left a cushy global […]
Boxing fan or not, you must be fairly acquainted with the names Floyd Mayweather Junior and Manny Pacquiao by now. If not, here’s the gist: these two—widely considered as boxing’s finest—came together to fight last Saturday (for the very first time) in what has been called the “fight of the century”, and Mayweather won.
As I scanned the sea of impassive faces on the train on the way to work this morning, it struck me that while nothing looked out of the ordinary, things were no longer the same for my country of Singapore. A week ago, our founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, had passed away at the […]
For someone who has come close to the brink of death five times, you would think he has gotten life all figured out.
