Welcome to Confinement Diaries. It’s a mixed bag of everything I find interesting. Access the posts by category – trust me, it makes more sense that way.


Shihan is a freelance copywriter, mother of two girls, and endurance athlete (in no particular order). She blogs about being a modern tiger mum, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), traditional postpartum confinement practices, Chinese religion, and the history of the Chinese in Southeast Asia.

She also helps small businesses plan and execute their marketing strategies at 226 Media.
