Besides singing, Boon is also into songwriting, and has even written two songs for Hebe Tien, member of Taiwanese girl band S.H.E. 

The tracks she composed are "Every day is a Miracle" and "Your Body Speaks", and it was that experience that led to her signing with the same record label — HIM — as Tien.
