Why “yewnique”?

My maiden name is Yew.  It’s Chinese for ‘swim’.  It’s a very rare surname, so I guess you could call it, um, unique.

When I was in Pre-University in Taylor’s College in Malaysia, I came up with the name “Yew-Nique” to brand my handmade greeting cards.  And I’ve kept it ever since.


About yewnique

I am a Malaysian-born woman who is married to an Australian and now live in Melbourne, Australia. I am a mother to four children. I home school. I like reading, writing, and cooking -- not necessarily in that order. I care about grammar and spelling, but am nonchalant about the Oxford Comma. I try to follow Christ's teachings.
