Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog.
A little bit about myself; I am Chinese Malaysian, born and raised in the capital, Kuala Lumpur. I speak five languages, including my mother tongue, Fujian, a dialect widely spoken by the Chinese community throughout South East Asia.
After high school, I got pretty restless and wanted to break away from my bubble and explore the world. That’s probably down to my raging rebellious hormones. I decided to pursue university education in London. It was great. Three years on and I graduated with a business degree followed by a Master’s in marketing at Imperial College London. Ever since, I have worked with a creative agency in Singapore, an edgy travel start-up in central London, and a luxury tour operator based in Islington. My journey in London has been more than I could hope for — I learned and did so much in 6 years. The start of 2016 was bittersweet, marking the end of my London chapter. But, knowing the next chapter begins back home in Malaysia, I cannot be more thrilled to find out what’s in store.
Update: July, 2016 — Despite the move back from the West, and working hard to make a new career path (building a hospitality management business – Suites Stay), I could not forego travelling. Being blessed as always, I managed to explore the exotic paradise of Cape Verde, the underrated culturally-rich Uzbekistan, and the glorious top dog of Asia, Singapore in this first half of 2016.
Travel posts coming soon…
Living in London for 7 years has given me to opportunity to experience everything the city has to offer — the buzz, great food, year round events, easy-access to neighbouring countries and a whole lot more. Sharing and showcasing my travel and indulgent experiences has become a big part of this blog over the recent years. I am lucky to say I had the chance to visit 19 countries so far — from California to Denmark, India and Taiwan. If I had to pick one place as a favourite, it would have to be California.
In most of my posts, you will find a gallery of photos, simply because visuals engage me and tell more stories than a paragraph of texts. Most photos are shot with the iPhone 6s, Fujifilm X100, and more recently the Canon 100D. More photos are updated frequently on my Instagram.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy my posts.
