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.
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.
