The Sugar-free Writer.

The writer of this blog, as pictured above, is Daena, who graduates from uni this summer. She is 22 going on 23, and is of Chinese-Singaporean descent. She currently lives in Singapore and plans to work here, but dreams of backpacking across Europe now that she can speak decent basic German and rotten French.

She loves to shop and sing karaoke (and in the shower), watch chick flicks and crime dramas, photography, writing and sleeping in on Saturday mornings. She’s also crazy about all things German.

Her favourite musicians are The Corrs, Lifehouse, Jars of Clay, The Fray, The Beatles, Bryan Adams, Carrie Underwood, Coldplay and The Dixie Chicks.

She really enjoys a good Japanese meal, and is a bit of a chocoholic. Her favourite Starbucks drink is a grande skinny latte with no sweetener. And she loves strawberries with vanilla yoghurt.

She adores cats, the beach, sunshine, being in water, walking barefoot, and laughing with good friends.

And by the way, did you know she’s had Type 2 Diabetes since 2007? She was diagnosed at age 20, and wants to live a long and healthy life with her crazy pancreas. Her diaversary is 29 April.

She won’t let diabetes slow her down or take control of her life again. But she’ll write it all down here instead, and hopes that you will be encouraged by her journey.

She thinks this blog is great for her life with the D-monster because they are sugar (and carb) free, and therefore can only be good for blood sugar control (and mental health).
