“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.” Quote Steve Jobs

Looking at how this is the first post of 2016, a beginning of a new year, I shall connect the dots by featuring 12 of the past posts here that you may or may not have read.

Social Media: Friend or Foe

This is my second piece post in MiddleMe. Despite just starting out, I was humbled that it got picked up by an app and featured it to its 5 million readers, giving me the belief that I might be on to something good.

Time Not Enough

This post is one of the first few posts that started MiddleMe and the inspirations given by one of my friends. This got so popular that I had to follow up with a sequel to this piece.

Intuitive to Others’ Feelings

Inspired by a loved one who was blinded to everyone’s feelings. Don’t get me wrong, he is a super nice guy, just that he often stumbled upon social awkwardness.

Bullying At Work

The first time I was inspired by a fellow blogger Kendall and this post is a spin off from what she wrote on her blog, Bully by Kendall F. Person. Soon it hit me that I get inspirations easily from people’s perspectives and their insights, I begin to read and delve deeper into others’ posts.

The Brotherhood Award!

This was given to me by Rob Goldstein, my very first award.

Working with Asians

This is the first post specifically touching upon Asians. Instead of generic career advices, MiddleMe is branching out to globalization career articles.

Guest Post: The Empty Many by Jonathan Noble

I kept encountering great articles as I kept reading and following more talented writers. One of them is Jonathan who is also one of the few pioneer followers of MiddleMe. His article was the first guest post that featured in my website, leading to a Guest Post permanent feature.

Politics and You

The very first time I touched on politics, and I hate politics because it is the one thing often divide people into two extreme teams.

Weekly Wisdom 7 July

You might not know but MiddleMe is born on 7 July. This is the first of Weekly Wisdom that you have come to love.

A Word of Advice: I don’t have time for myself

This spark off when a reader of mine wrote to me, seeking advice. I thought to myself the advice I gave would and could benefit a lot more people if I share it out. Hence after seeking approval and removing all direct evidence, A Word of Advice is born.

I am Chinese But I am not from China

Another inspiration to start off a column based on my relocation experiences.

A Conversation About Passion, Work and Our Impact on The World

This was the first time I interviewed someone and I didn’t think I could pull it off but with the help of Cedrick, the interview article is a success!



2016 is going to be an exciting year ahead. I want to explore and build on what I already have and expand into unchartered horizons. If you find the above articles beneficial, share MiddleMe out to your loved ones.

I love any kind of suggestions on how you’ll like to see the growth of MiddleMe. If you do have wacky ideas, drop me an email at kally@MiddleMe.net.

Thank you so much for being a MM loyal follower.

Welcome to a new 2016 MiddleMe!

  1. The article about working with Asians was interesting. Some people really have dumb stereotypes. It’s always a silly idea to say person X is from country Y and so will think Z. Whatever the country, people are individuals, not clones.
