About The Manx

This Manx is a girl from a small tropical island. Despite the scorching sun, she is fair-skinned and dark-haired. Typically camouflaged behind rose-tinted glasses, it’s not easy to tell what she’s thinking. Sometimes it’s hard to tell who she is.

When she was a kiddo, her first ambition was to someday be an author. She got sidetracked because the local education system turned her superego into Godzilla, and she lacked the willpower to resist the siren call of academic over-qualification. Even now, she still has to study and take examinations, and hardly ever finds any time to write.

Despite being (over)occupied by her day (and sometimes night… and sometimes spilling over to the next day) job, the Manx finds solace in books, music, photography and smelling nice. Once upon a time, she also had two cats… or maybe two cats had her. The cats have since trodden softly from this world to another where they will never grow old again.

This blog is where the Manx writes down the ideas that have been rattling around her mad little feline brain. She likes somewhere to blab about how her day has gone, or to spew her screwball theories about the insanities that sometimes pass for ordinary life.

If you’re still reading this, consider yourself cheek-rubbed by this cat. Meowr.

    Hi Katie, I actually enjoyed reading your blog. What made it more entertaining is that I know who you are and I know what you are talking about most of the time! The question is, do you know me? Haha Shouldn’t be too hard to figure out. Take care! Keep it coming

    I trying my very best to not sound like a bot. I googled viaadress and your blog came up. I genuinely want to know if they are a legit company because there is so much flak that’s going around about how they are a scam company bla bla bla. im tired of vpost and the rubbish that comes along with it. Kindly assist if possible? And did you also manage to get a phone number for your viadress account?

    Will be extremely thankful if you could reply (:

      Hi Conan, sorry for my late reply. I have no reason to call Viaddress a scam company because I’ve used it successfully before. My main complaint about it is how user-unfriendly the website was at the time; dunno about now because I’ve come to prefer ComGateway. I don’t recall having any trouble with phone numbers either.
