 Home Sweet Home 還是家最好
However I changed my objective and wanted to do comics instead, so I went to teaching, with a good salary (compared with the rest of the industry) and not a lot of overtime work. I drew comics every night and weekend and uploaded them on my Taiwanese blog. But again, I see no light since no Taiwanese publisher will work with an average Singaporean comic blogger. So I figured that I should try to make a holy grail to the land of manga, Japan, to learn what they did right. I applied to scholarships and finally got it on my 3rd attempt. Everyone was skeptical about my goal but congratulated me that I'd finally won a ticket to my dreamland.
Although there are Singaporeans that do not want to return back home once they manage to get out, I felt like returning home after graduation. My vision is that Singapore comics will be just as famous as Snoopy and Mickey Mouse! Maybe the perception of "artists=no future" will be changed if we succeed. At the end of the day, Singapore is still my home sweet home, because that's where my family and friends are.
