Hello. I'm Ling. I'm a writer, filmmaker and journalist.

I've published short fiction and I've written and directed short films, music videos and brand videos.

I am sometimes funny. I've written for BBC Radio 4's sketch show Sketchtopia, and I was a finalist for the BBC's inaugural Felix Dexter Bursary for BAME comedy writers. 

My journalism is mostly about culture, urban development, travel, and heritage. I like interviewing people. I've been commissioned by The Guardian, The Telegraph, Cond√© Nast Traveller, Time Out Kuala Lumpur, Esquire Malaysia and more.

I'm interested in places, and how the places that we live change us, and vice versa. I have edited a non-fiction anthology of stories about Kuala Lumpur.
