About Me



GET OUT 2012 People's Band Competition
Some call me Kai Sheng (凱升), some call me Javin. Javin is the Christian name or alias I named myself when I was in high school.

Just some facts about me, due to a kind of eye disorder called keratoconus, I underwent cornea transplant surgeries in 2010 (right) and 2011 (left), I therefore have a pair of corneas which don't belong to me. o.O

Graduated from National University of Singapore (NUS) with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, I'm currently working full time as an engineer in a US MNC and also pursuing a master's degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering at NUS. Besides, I'm performing regularly and/or occasionally at some local bars and events with my acoustic band called "The Tripsters", as a cajónist/keyboardist.

Many people asked how I juggle so many things in parallel, well, I'm not quite sure why but as I know everyone has 24 hours a day, I'd say that it ties back to time management, and another thing that I know is that I don't really watch TV - one can count the number of times I physically touch the TV remote control annually with one hand.

Owing to my strong interest in the Japanese language (ironically, I'm really NOT a fan of anime/manga) and having taken a number of Japanese language modules in NUS, I do speak, write, read and understand Japanese to some extent. Some of my blog entries are in Japanese, and I have also written songs in Japanese before.
