WHERE OH WHERE (WoW) is a life/style website founded by long-time journalist Karman Tse.
We believe in the power of meaningful, honest conversations and good storytelling. So, we made it our purpose to discover, uncover, listen to and tell stories of women from around the world who inspire the rest of us to live better (with intent, with grace and gratitude), choose better (your body, heart and psyche will thank you later), and be better — inside and out; to be AM-powered.
Through these stories, whether we are talking about wellness, travelling, work, beauty or relationships, we hope you will not only find a combination of words, tools, wisdom, inspiration, recipes, courage, some answers and a little moral support to live the life you want, be who you want to be, but also to enjoy the marvellous myriad of recommendations from experts, insiders and friends we know and trust (or us) on the where to’s (go, eat, shop, spa, stay, wander, cloud-watch…), what-to’s (read, watch, listen to, and the how to’s (love, laugh, breathe, live).
Get these stories and positive vibes delivered directly to your inbox.
Karman has been a journalist for over a decade. Her career began at a leading newspaper in Singapore, where she covered lifestyle beats from travel to fashion and everything in between. Here was where she found her passion for storytelling and design.
Eight years later, it was au revoir newspaper, and hello glossies. She has helmed print and online publications as editor at Revolution Press, Glam Media and MediaCorp Publishing. Some of the most exciting interviews she still loves to this day have been with Victoria Beckham, Cara Delevingne, tennis legend Chris Evert, Aimee Song, Margaret Zhang, Michelle Phan and Kelly Wearstler.
She started Wear Oh Where as a passion project in her studio apartment in 2013. Now, WoW is the go-to platform for inspiring stories and intimate conversations with women (and other humans) making a difference from all over the world. Here are some of her favourite brands and businesses WoW has collaborated with: Club 21, NARS, Singapore Fashion Week, The Canary Diamond Co, Skin Inc, The Outnet, Net-A-Porter, InterContinental Singapore, Huawei, WTA, MATTER, and more.

EVA RISHON HO
Editorial & Marketing Manager
Rishon lives, breathes good music and books. She has the phrase “Live wild, die free” tattooed on her back when she turned 18, and believes in living life to her heart’s desire*, and dying without regrets.
*Desires include but are not limited to: exploring the world (by foot, preferably), eating well, real conversations, hiking and getting quality shut-eye.
Charlene Monaghan believes that her big beautiful mess of a life has led her to where she needs to be. She is always on a journey of self-discovery, and hopes that everything she learns on the way will inspire others to live a life of happiness and love. Nature, travel, reiki, yoga, breathing and gratitude are a few things that keep her going.
“If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy tales and I like them best of all.” Like Holly Golightly, Charnice believes that fairy tales are the stuff of happiness. Christmas is her favourite time of year, and she dreams of all things sparkly and nice — that’s not to say she doesn’t also enjoy a good bargain. With the curiosity of a cat, she is easily fascinated, especially by everything beauty, fashion and food.
Terri believes that personal growth and improvement are a ceaseless process. So when she’s not seeking new ways of challenging herself, exploring new places to eat and putting together her next outfit, she wonders about life, its perplexities and people. And when life gets her down, there is no better cure for her than the voice of Ella Fitzgerald and the wisdom of George Orwell.
