More about me in 300 words

My name is aikkia, I always see myself as “Jack of all trades, master of none”, I have a long list of hobbies like Chinese painting, calligraphy, origami, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Chinese Astrology, Yi-Ching, Tai Chi, reading and writing, and this is what has shaped me, whether it is a good or bad thing, only time will tell.


Since young, I have an affection for the elderly; I enjoy watching, listening and talking to them. I wanted to run a nursing home to take care of them. So, I set myself a simple life mission, hoping to share my love, knowledge and experience in eldercare sector, hoping that everyone ages gracefully, healthily and actively.
