Alvina is a candid character. Friends who know her find it completely normal that she starts breaking out into a dance in the middle of the mall, and strangers who don’t find her incredibly spontaneous and well, weird. Either way, she is unabashedly herself 99% of the time. Except for that 1% — when she senses that she might be in trouble.
Being candid also means being a little too straightforward. Hardly does she try to hide what she’s feeling. Like an open book, people can tell when she’s upset or exhilarated. Of all her expressions, the most prominent look has got to be her “WTF” face. She’d look at you, sort of confused and sort of bewildered at what’s coming out of your mouth, before mouthing “wtf” under her breath.
She is also a little nerdy. With an interest in issues within Southeast Asia, particularly in its history, Alvina loves it when people entertain her bouts of remarks on these topics. She also loves intellectual conversations and when people recommend her their favourite books. But too much smart-talk gives her a headache so occasionally she would still prefer the trash-talking.
Having graduated in a pandemic, this Political Science student decided to YOLO a little and try her hand at video production. Armed with zero production knowledge, the former journalist wannabe dived deep into the media and advertising industry to venture into the unknown (sing it like Elsa did, pls). Thankfully, she didn’t mess up too much during her stint and managed to land herself in a new job as a marketing associate. Sorry business students, the social science graduates really do be stealing yo’ jobs.
Currently, she’s passionate about getting out of the rut and will do anything, which includes reviving this blog, to curb this problem. Also, she’s paying over 100USD a year to upkeep this domain so as a responsible consumer, she will do what it takes to stretch her dollar.

“Fuck coolness. Fuck being friends with only popular influencers and artists. Fuck ur follower count. Fuck not going further than surface level. I love passion, caring, and feeling. I love being unapologetically myself. I’ll tone down when I die.”
