Hello From Norma!

The You Tube Video here is a video of me in Vietnam being interviewed at my BookLaunch. It was a very interesting experience! And as most of my friends will tell you, I have a special love for Vietnam. :)

Dear Friends

Welcome to the Gorgeous Sexy and Rich (GSR) Website.

This is a photo of me taken at Hoi An Beach in Vietnam (Apr 2010).  In the early part of 2010, I spent almost 50% of my time in Vietnam these days, working on work-work and humanitarian-work. The other 50% I was back home in Singapore, writing or in my office with my wonderful team.

Of course, being a supposed ‘superwoman’ (a big ha-ha-ha), I am also supposed to do all the things that are important to my two children.  Like watching a French film with Brian who speaks French and I don’t, and running around with my daughter Elizabeth, being amazed by her cleverness and her emotional intelligence. And yes, I do do those things too.

Thank you for being here with me on my site.  Write to me.  I do try to reply.

Be happy always. Find Love.  Find Peace.  Find Yourself.  Daily.

With Friendship,

p/s:   The books are now available on   Yippee!

Thoughts on Love

Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.

- Vincent van Gogh

The more I think it over, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.

- Vincent van Gogh
