  1. Hey, I thanks for reading the Kiva Fellows blog and for commenting! Here is another moment of connection: I also lived in Singapore (for about 6-7 years) and went to the same school as Jane (who I can see is on your blogroll)… small world!

  2. Admiring the time and effort you put into your site and in depth information you
