THE MAYDEN is a creative and experimental space that features the writings of a 19-year-old hopeless romantic in search of stories to tell and lives to collect.

Brunei Blogger and Writer May Cho of The Mayden


Curated by May Cho, The Mayden is a space where she takes a creative and experimental approach to storytelling. What began in April '15 as an online diary of personal style showcases has evolved into something so much more.

Cared for by someone with an eternal love affair with words and the English Language, the namesake of the blog is a pun on the word 'maiden,' so often defined as:

          1 n. a young woman
          2 adj. being or involving the first attempt or act of its kind (ie "the maiden voyage")

; both of which are accurate representations of both the blog and the writer who bears the name -- May -- so fitting for this play on word to happen: a young woman embarking on the nerve-wrecking yet exciting first run of a blog she has crafted over time.

At times when she is not on the internet, May is a Computer Science student at the University of Brunei Darussalam who actively participates in drama productions, musical performances and fangirling activities over the likes of cats, cats, and cats. She is also an avid reader, a coffee drinker and an unapologetic partaker of excessive corn and cheese.
