So you found me! Hi and welcome to Cotton-Pickin’ Days version 2.0. I started Cotton-Pickin’ Days 1.0 in November 2003 and have been hooked on blogging and social media ever since.

I’m a Chinese-American expat living in Singapore with my husband and son. Previously, we lived in the U.S., Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam, and the UK. I currently work as a social medial specialist and also blog at Eye on DNA.

This personal blog is my wunderkammer or room of wonders on the Web. A place where I record ideas, thoughts, opinions, and many things that cross my cluttered mind. If you’ve got something to add to my wunderkammer, please leave me a comment or e-mail me!

By the way, my domain name Cottontimer is from a Japanese sewing magazine I used to like called Cotton Time. The name of the blog, Cotton-Pickin’ Days, also has a double meaning (to me) because cotton-picking is slang used to indicate annoyance. The adjective cotton-picking was first used in Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes cartoons. However, please don’t confuse cotton-picking with cotton picker which is a derogatory term for a black person.
