Hi! I’m Jonathan.

I was born in New York to a Malaysian father and South Korean mother and raised in Singapore. I am presently based in New Haven, Connecticut. I am a naturalised Singaporean citizen.

I’m a graduate student in East Asian Studies at Yale University. I was previously educated at Wolfson College, Cambridge, where I read for a degree in English literature.

This blog serves as an archive of various pieces of writing I’ve had published over the years, including poems, essays, and articles.

If you’re interested in getting in touch, please drop me an email at jonbcy@gmail.com or a message at @fivefoundings on Instagram.


You have to imagine
a waiting that is not impatient
because it is timeless.
– R. S. Thomas
