About Me (and my blog)

Lhu Wen Kai

p.s. I’m a guy who has long hair (used to).

My name is Lhu Wen Kai, and I’m an 18-year-old art director currently based in Singapore.

I am a graphic designer and documentary filmmaker by trade, and during my spare time, I moonlight as a journalist, photographer, and chart-topping pianist. An Apple Certified Professional, I specialise in presentation design and street photography, having launched my debut solo exhibition back in 2015. A flexible content creator, having written lifestyle pieces, football columns, editorials on world events and political commentaries among others, I have worked with over 100 companies from 20 countries across 30 industry verticals, helping startups, non-profits, media agencies, online magazines, educational institutes and business conglomerates develop a multitude of creative solutions spanning various contemporary mediums.

I love food.

I also really enjoy playing sports, especially soccer and handball, and I’m quite the competitive type, for better or for worse.

The teams I support includes Arsenal, the Netherlands national team, and the Phoenix Suns.

In my free time, I like playing the piano, watching TV dramas and just chilling in a quiet place and be alone with my thoughts. My favorite shows include F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Burn Notice, The Mentalist, Two Broke Girls, Mind Your Language, Prison Break, Hawaii Five 0 and less serious ones like Kickin’ It, Shake It Up, Lab Rats, and the mind-numbingly brilliant Teen Titans.

No one can survive without music, and for me personally, I prefer oldies like Michael Learns To Rock, Air Supply, Alabama, The Coasters, and a long list that I simply cannot remember. I tune in to mandopop pretty often, and I count David Tao, Khalil Fong, Chang Chen-yue, Wang Leehom, Jay Chou, Christine Fan, Angela Zhang, and many others as my favorite, multi-talented singers. Besides that, I love jazz, blues, 80s music, rock and roll, love ballads, reggae, country, and well, how do you put this, hmm… High School Musical and Phineas and Ferb.

Yea.

ABOUT THE BLOG

Lhu is a personal space for me to practice my writing and pen my thoughts down. You’ll find a variety of articles here; from food and lifestyle, to humor, opinion pieces and commentaries on current affairs. For simpler navigation, I grouped my articles in their respective categories, so click on whatever that interests you on the menu above. If you enjoy reading my content, do sign up for the monthly newsletter at the sidebar on the left!

Besides blogging, Lhu also acts like a portfolio and an online ‘hub’ for all my activities. It’ll give my readers and potential clients a more convenient way to keep up with my work and content.

This blog was originally set up in Jan 2013 as an outlet for me to share my views and thoughts on school life. It has since grown into something I totally didn’t expect (in a good way tho). For those who are interested, here are some quick stats:

  • Majority of Lhu’s viewers (90%) are from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and Singapore.
  • Between December 2014 – April 2015, during which ten posts were published, Lhu averaged over 1,500 unique visitors daily. 
  • Every article published since December 2014 has been read by over ~24,500 people on average. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for visiting and making my blogging journey such an enlightening one. I got to experience things many people can only dream of, and a large part of it is made possible by you guys, the faithful readers. Lhu is a blog that prides itself with original content and unpopular opinions, and for the foreseeable future, I will strive to continue expanding this blog without compromising on quality and creative integrity.

Now that you’ve learnt more about me and my blog, I hope you’ll have pleasant stay here at Lhu. Feel free to roam around, read my articles, tell me what you think, leave comments about my designs, feedback, offer your opinions, perspectives, whatever. There’s no red tape here.

If you need to contact me for any reasons, you can do so here.

    Why do everyone keep talking about foreigner invasions when they are the ones who assisted Singapore in developing into such a beautiful place.
    I would recommend people to read up more about what the positive things foreigners did rather than judging by the few negative foreigner which caused a stir.
    The brains of humans contain a mechanism that is designed to give priority to negative news.
    Be fair guys overall, we’re all humans hanging by the tags which we’re FORCED to have when we’re created, nobody gets to choose the country, environment and culture we’re stuck-ed to.
    What’s in their mind is just to get a penny for a living.

    Sorry i just happen to have had enough of people mentioning about foreigners so i decided to posted this here.

    • Hi Keve! Thanks for commenting. You seem to get the wrong impression here; no one is complaining bout the PRESENCE; people are complaining bout the OVERLOAD. Singapore needs foreigners, but not THIS MUCH. It’s not right when Singaporeans are passed over after the necessity threshold for foreigners is reached. I suggest you read about how foreigners are affecting Singaporeans and their livelihoods, and at the same, read about how the government’s irresponsible immigration policies are affecting the foreign talents themselves :)

    • What so if im 16 I cant have kids? Such a presumptious statement… :P anyway thanks for your compliment and stopping by :) I’ll make sure I do exactly that when I still have the time!

    You’re specialising already??? Wow, I thought you just started school last week.

    • Haha, not specialising per se. As in, I’m more good and have more experience at what was mentioned, and that was what I meant by specialising.

  9. :) Are you sure you are sixteen?? This is really impressive! I don’t know what to say just keep doing what you’re doing and do it well.

  10. Ha, you have quite an about page! You sure have a lot of interests and a lot to say for someone who is only 16! Your style actually reminds me of my little brother (he just turned 17).
    Lovin it and keep it up! :)

  11. Oh gawd I remember I LOVED watching Teen Titans so much. But I can’t watch them anymore because they just don’t appear on TV for me.

    • I actually cried when Terra couldn’t remember who Beast Boy was… damn. I wanted to rewatch the entire series but now school has started and time is like practically non-existent. Maybe you can try buying them online? It’s really worth it for such a brilliantly-written show haha.

    • Hey mikiren! Sorry for the late, late, late reply I have lost track of the past comments on my About page. Thanks for nominating me :) Really appreciate it!

  12. Hi, I’ve just a quick question fi you wouldn’t mind – I’m looking to purchasing the Moka theme but was just wondering how you get your posts to sit side by side on your front page. When I preview mine they are just in one big list which doesn’t look very user friendly or inviting? Thank you for your time. Great blog! Keep it up!

    • Hey Danny! Sure thing I wouldnt mind helping you. I’m afraid the instructions will be pretty long, so do you wanna communicate via email instead? Drop me a line on my portfolio page and I’ll get back to you :) take care!

  13. Fat & Happy Bitch says

    Hahaha! I’ve thoroughly and sincerely enjoyed reading this page! And wow, you sure do know how to do A LOT of stuff! :).

  14. Hi Honey,

    I think it is quite possible that you have the coolest pic on WP – J’aime your tux jacket ;-).

    Keep up the slick and stylish blog site!!

    BH xx

  15. Sorry to post this here, but I was trying to clear my reply and apparently deleted your comment as well. I’m so embarrassed. Anyhow. to try and answer your question, my experience is with trees mostly and they start to bud out in March-April. Well at least the ones I grow. It does vary a bit. We’ve had a cold and wet spring this year so I think the trees are confused. :) Its summer there all year round? Thank you again for stopping by and I hope to see you again :)

    • Hey! Really sorry that I never got a chance to answer your comment. Lost track of past comments on my About page. Yeap, it’s summer here all year round, unfortunately. Have a great day ahead!

    • Oh you like them too omg, that is awesome. And that’s really a nice thing for you to say glad you recognised my style of humor!

      • Humor is something everyone enjoys.. unless they are my school teachers{their face when I crack a joke >>>> (-_-)} …and me being a person who can’t take the grumpy faces.. your blog is a good time pass….
