Yi Jian grew up on the edge... between the Malay-speaking and
Chinese-speaking lines of Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. After living and working in Singapore for ten years, he then returned to KL after not being cunning
enough to get a post-graduate work visa in Australia. He doesn't have any
manic, quirky habits worth mentioning about although he does dabble in
writing regional sci-fi and board games. He is a freelance researcher
(politics and international relations) otherwise.
