About Shirley

Hi everybody! My name is HUO XIAOLI. You can call me shirley, a name given by former room mate. This name reminds the happy time we spent together!

A brief introduction about myself: I am an year 3 Civil Engineering student from the National University of Singapore (NUS). Actually there are not many girls opting for civil engineering, but I am one of them. I simply love that course, like water purification systems, soil foundation analysis, transport system, etc. I come from China and I received a scholarship from the Ministry of Education (MOE) here to study in Dunman High School. Later on, I went to study in Victoria Junior College. After which I  went on to the Univeristy of Singapore (NUS) to pursue my undergraduate studies.

It has not been a smooth journey for me to grow up, mainly because I am a foreigner and language problem was always my first enemy. I just could not open up and make friends as I  feel inferior when I was in front of my friends. Hence my secondary school experience is something I am not fond of. I am not blaming my secondary school, it is just that I  was not ready to enjoy the school life at that stage of my life. All I  remember is not to fail my tests and do well in my O-Levels, as if I do not do well, my scholarship will be withdrawn.  I was under stress to perform, this situation has lasted until I  enter the second year of junior college. There, I found a room mate, Irene, she was  a scholar from Indonedia and she was very good at English, she always did so well in her General Paper in school. She helped me a lot in both my oral and written English. Since she cannot speak Chinese, we are kind of forced to communicate in English. I always put a small dictionary beside me when we chit chat and day by day, our comminucation becomes smoother and my confidence level rises partly due to her constant encouragement. Until now, I still feel very thankful of her. Thank you, Irene.  Together, we studied hard and motivate each other and in the end, both of us all got 4As for our A-Levels and I got B3  for my general paper. She did very well and later she got a scholarship from ST to further her studies.

I create this blog as I want to start a online business and learn from friends online and share whatever I have with you all. I have been addicted to reading books written on brain power and also books on internet marketing and wealth creation, etc. As I read those books, I feel that I should start action now, as action is the first step towards our goals in life. Yes, ACTION! I plan to get used to internet marketing and learn as much as possible from books and online information, I hope by the end of this year, my internet business can start making profit and I can share more of it after that. Yes, I am planning my work.

“Plan your work and then work your plan. ”

I hope that this blog serves as a platform for a informal discussion about internet business, friendship building, personal development, book reviews and a place to confide in. I will add more interesting stuff about my life later in this blog, please stay tuned.

If you have any suggestions, please drop me an email at: huoxiaoli2001@hotmail.com. Let me stop for now, and before I sign off, here I wish you all a happy and meaningful day!

 Yours sincerely,
