About Sheylara

I’m a girl with many hats but not literally because actual hats give me headaches.


Mental Sheylara


Professionally, I’ve been a journalist, editor, actress, model, Xbox brand ambassador, web designer, project manager, nursery teacher and blogger.

Not professionally, I’m a cartoonist, gamer, photographer, singer-songwriter, shoulder to cry on and online shopping addict.

Now, if you would just give me another minute of your time, I’d like to entice you to read my blog, please.


Giant nerdy glasses


I started blogging around 2004 (I know, right, ancient) and have been known to mysteriously disappear for months at a time, only to abruptly resurface like a mouldy chrysalis exploding into a schizophrenic butterfly.

My tendency for disappearances can be directly tied to the fact that when not enough people read my blog, I get sad and curl up to die a metaphorical death (until such a time as I get bored of it).

Unfortunately, I can only explode so many times before I actually, literally, die of explosion, which is physics and a scientifically-proven fact, therefore you should be impressed. And not want me to die, presumably.

And that’s why I hope you will consider reading my blog. Like on a regular basis.

    I just read your email through the Sim cousins email circle and want to show my support. Way to go, you’ve got something good going, and I’m so proud of you for pursuing your dreams, your way!

    BTW, do you remember we used to co-write silly little stories with “choose your own ending” endings? I wonder if you ever kept any of our drafts? It’ll be great to read them together today, decades later.

    Keep up your writing, cuz, ‘cos you’ve made fans of us!

    Sorry just can’t help it, dude think you will be cobblered by goonfather even before u have the chance to say that in person…

    Nevertheless it’s a worthy effort (but seriously I dun think you even know QY as who she is, least talk about painting a lifelong canvas together)….

    Hello I stumbled onto you web site and read some of these letters. I am very interested in learning about acting classes and where it may take you. recently I am on a visionquest to identify my career choice.
    Really never understood the good times and opportunities I was givin. But now that things are a bit more difficult, I am kind of circling the wagons as they say in cowboy country and trying to find a career that challeges me and opens my mind. I”m writing Sheylara in hopes of in a way connecting with a new beginning. Hope to hear from you.

    Sincerely Marius

    Hey, Sheylara! You’re a gamer… do you play Grand Theft Auto. I’ve never asked you this before. BioShock? Halo? It’d be interesting if you can do a sexy pose while playing GTA.

    Anyway, my main purpose writing this is because I really need a skit/fan fic writer for my blog. I need a good writer and a (hardcore) gamer that plays GTA. You really fit the bill. Do give me a reply, capiche?

    Man, if I were about 20 years younger… And in the same geographical region… And rich… And not in a wheelchair… You’d still turn me down for a date. :-)

    I just read your Twitter. I’m more than a little concerned that you are dreaming about MMORPGs…

    Good to know you’re somewhat balanced unlike other PS3-insulting-Xbox-fan-idiots who thinks that every game from PlayStation 3 must belong to their system, even Metal Gear Solid 4!

    Keep it up!

    I sorta found this place by accident, was lookin at some vids for Fable II at youtube, seen those 5 that you posted, than checked the rest of your works. Nice blog, I normally consider blogs to be brain killing almost as badly as commercials and some MTV programms but this one is an exeption, Ill prolly stick around to reading it whenever I got time [being in US military I got plenty of that >>], keep up the good work… or more like good fun ;] .

  19. Avatar

    My good friends all call me QY for short!

    Some people call me Shey.

    Others call me Qiaoyun.

    A select few people are confused and refuse to call me by any of my names, preferring to call me Girl or Babe or Hey.

    Initially I doesn’t know who is Sheylara was. I vividly remember that I even post a silly to question by asking her who’s Sheylara. Embarassing enough, when I found out that who she is, I was like… “Oh my god! She’s one of the famous bloggers from S’pore….”

    So, I know who “you” are now :)

    Ugh, wish my life approximated to even a fraction of how fun yours seems to be. Going the standard route through university seems like trying to eat an old shoe compared to this XD.

    I assume you play(ed) AoC on their American servers. Wish it was possible for me to keep playing but that’s not going to happen where I am *sad panda*

    Keep it up ^^ you’re entertaining a lot of people it seems.

    Hello out there, I’ve just playing with this computer andwas able to get some information about yourself. I used to be a sole Computer Specialist/Teacher/Mentor mentor to the former American Armies over the country of Saudi Arabia. I’ve met a very undesirable vehicular accident, that’s why I’m here in our country Philippines. I do have some many stories to let you know more about me, I can even create by myself a poem, whom I was published on an American book with awards.
    Bye, if you want to let you know more about myself JUST E-MAIL ME BACK

    Hi Sheylara, I’m Tim, from Australia and a closet gamer and I’m seriously taken by the fact that you have a passion for too many hats – finally, I know I’m not alone.. :P

    seriously, I have a power ranger hat (yeah, I know..), hockey helmet, army helmet, turban, beret and motorbike helmet… it’s an expensive habit – and a worrying trait – as i’m sure your aware.

    Twas cool to stumble across your blog. Do you like travelling? I was in Korea recently and spent some time with some people from Singapore… interesting people hehe.. they spoke Korean, but not English. Is Korean more popular than English in Singapore? Seems odd to me, but then again, I don’t know much about the geo-economics of your corner of the world :)

    you seem cool, and cool people interest me.. so I’d love to hear from you, shoot me an email sometime…or not. Your call. Either way, keep doing what you love and enjoy this awesome world. Peace

    Hi Sheylara

    I just stumbled across your blog and find it adorable and interesting. I run an urban website in Seoul, Korea (www.seoulstyle.com). How did you like Seoul? Where can I read more about your bio information? :)

    I see we both do dome acting in Asia.

    Hi, what a coincidence! I just started writing a novel and one of the characters brings your same name. Actually, I invented the name out of nowhere, as I never heard it before, and then I landed up on this page! :D

    “It’s a coincidence only if you believe in them. I prefer inevitability: every event is inevitable. If it weren’t, it wouldn’t happen”. :)
