Eva is a lucky Singaporean who had won scholarships to pursue her Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in San Francisco in 2004 and her Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in Tokyo in 2010. She has been drawing webcomics since 2007 and enjoys a large following on her Facebook page, Evacomics.

Her seminal work "Eva, Kopi and Matcha" (2014) depicts and satirises cultural differences between Singapore and Japan and has been translated into Bahasa Indonesia and Vietnamese. Her second book "Eva Goes Solo" (2016) documents her experiences adapting to life in Japan where she lived for some years. Her third book "Eva, Kopi and Matcha 2.0" was released in 2017, extending comparisons to more countries like US, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. Her latest book "A Manga Lover's Tokyo Travel Guide" will be available at bookstores worldwide in 2019.

Besides having a passion in Japanese culture and food, her hobbies include doing yoga, hiking, traveling and reading up on horoscopes and Fengshui.

kopi the dog matcha the cat
Kopi is a malay word for coffee, commonly used in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. He is Eva's (imaginary) pet dog with a good eye on stocks and investments. Both smart and sarcastic, he is impatient with idiots like Eva.
Matcha refers to finely milled or fine powder green tea. He/she is Eva's (another imaginary) pet cat whose primary existence is just to look incredibly cute, like that famous cat without a mouth.
