About me:

Hi! I'm a typical 20-ish lady holding a 9 to 5 job. Working life is tough but I believe that as long as there's hard work, there will be fruitful returns. Life is sure busy and full of pleasures too!!!!!!! God Bless!

Why marimo:

I actually first get to know about Marimo at about 5 year ago. I went to visit my cousin who is working in Japan as a marine biologist. He showed me this cool moss back then and I brought one back with me. It is still thriving and growing now (It is the marimo ball in the centre of the picture with the crown on top of it.). ^ ^
