My name is Chen and I am fond of solitude. In my silence and in my desire to be left alone though, my thoughts become too loud sometimes, leaving echoes I wish to put into words and make them more vivid. So, I decide to write them down and name this page chenolitude.com.

By the description spelled in bold letters, this site aims to document both my lingering in and my going out of my comfort zone. Thus, you will find here my book reviews and out-of-town getaways that either caught me by surprise or amused me so much that becoming a feature-storyteller has become the natural effect.

In this line, I would like to welcome you into my world! I may be reached through chen@chenolitude.com .
