About the BellaOnline Japanese Culture Editor

Hi~
Im a Singaporean currently living in Japan. Ching is my surname, but feel free to call me Tas. Its my other, unofficial, first name. Apart from English, I can speak Chinese (fluently) and Japanese (I possess the Japanese Language Proficiency Test N1 certificate). I hold a Bachelor of Arts with a Double Major in Communication & Media Studies and Journalism. At present, I work as an English teacher in a Japanese public junior high school in Yokosuka City. Previously, Id been working as an assistant English teacher at various public junior high and elementary schools in Oyama City in Tochigi Prefecture.

Ive been interested in Japanese culture since young - music, games, manga, anime etc. In fact, I used to work as an English manga editor at Chuang Yi Publishing Pte Ltd in Singapore for a couple of years. Anyway, I made the big decision to leave Singapore and come experience living in Japan as a resident.

After having lived in this country for so long, Ive developed an interest in Japanese traditional culture and history as well. Ive travelled to quite a number of places in Japan during all these years, (and Im not done yet - this country is so fascinating), and I hope to share my knowledge and experiences here with anyone whos interested in Japan-related stuff.

My main interest, besides travelling within Japan and playing video games, is music. I like rock music, and I play the guitar. I also write songs, including Japanese ones - to date, Ive got 4 original songs written in Japanese. Ive got a Singer-Songwriter Specialist Certificate from Berklee College of Music, and Ive also completed the Desktop Music Production for PC Course from the school too.

Do check out my songs on my Youtube channel if youre interested:
