About EastWing Lifestyle

The name EastWing has been an integral part of my life for the past 25 years and now in 2016, it has evolved to become EastWing LifestyleLife with a Difference.

About me

I am an excellent speed typist with an amazing attention to detail. Sometimes I think I should have been a forensic detective.

I have a sound understanding of the English language and will admit at being annoyed when I see grammatical and spelling errors especially when using homophones such as stationery and stationary.

When communicating with people who speak English as a second or third language I am considerate, patient and kind. I have had opportunities to work with people from many cultures including Korean, Vietnamese, South Africans, Chinese, Thai, Filipinos and Aboriginal Australians.

I enjoy travelling to new places and countries that I have not been to before.

I like to exercise at the start of my day.

I am loyal and caring and have so many special friends. My family is the most important focus of my life.

I love talking and I love life.
