DON’T EAT YOUR LITTLE SISTER


One of my signature stories that I love to tell to mixed, multi-cultural audiences.


A lot of participation and use of sign language.

LEGEND OF WILD GOOSE LAKE


A Chinese folktale told with Ni Jia Wei playing guzheng, at the Chinatown branch library.

PRINCESS DEWI RATIH
& THE MONSTER, KALA RAHU


A story from Bali about the princess in the moon and a monster who tries to catch and eat her!.  Recorded in Bali, near Ubud.

HOW TO BECOME A DRAGON

A folktale from Taiwan about an arrogant dragon and a small but ambitious (and very clever) little fish!


My most popular youtube video.

THE ONE WISH

This Irish folktale is a riddle story with a lot of humour. I often tell it with gophi, my deaf storytelling partner who plays Patrick to my Leprechaun .


Apologies for the accent!



HOW THE YEARS WERE NAMED

The story of the Chinese zodiac and why the 12 years come in the sequence that they do. Told using a kamishibai theatre - kamishibai is the traditional Japanese form of telling with picture cards.

Recorded at National Museum, Singapore

Power consists
to a large extent
in deciding
what stories will be told.
