A Little About Ann Jie`s Writing And Website (from Ann Jie)
My site is called Little Slices, and it’s a lifestyle site that focuses on long-form interviews with people. I generally focus on people living in three countries – Japan, Singapore and Malaysia, as I used to live in Singapore and Malaysia. My goal is to narrow the culture divide and get different perspectives! Interviewing different people has made me realize that at the end of the day, all people want are the same things – to be happy, to enjoy the simple things of life, and to have a sense of accomplishment.
A Personal Message From Ann Jie
I am a Malaysian girl who’s always dreamed of living in Tokyo, and she is currently living that dream! I’ve been blessed to meet tons of interesting people, and I was inspired to write about their stories because I find that people all over the world share a lot more similarities than they think.
Whether you’re Japanese or American or Malaysian, our core feelings are always the same. It’s just different cultures that shape different responses, along with different experiences in life. I think if we could all understand a little bit more about other people, and where they come from, it would really make the world a better place (as clichéd as that sounds).
