You might have seen Evangeline's comics around on social media platforms. Through her humourous observations, she highlights the differences her webcomics, which helped her gain a popular following on Facebook and Instagram. Her seminal work "Eva, Kopi and Matcha (2014)" depicts and satirises cultural differences between Singapore and Japan and has been translated into Bahasa Indonesia and Vietnamese." Her second book, "Eva Goes Solo (2016)" documents her experience adapting to life in Japan where she lived for some years. In her third book "Eva, Kopi and Matcha" was released in 2017, extending her cultural observations to countries like the US, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia.
