How many countries have you been to?

  • Asia: Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China
  • Europe: England, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Sweden, France, Netherlands, Germany
  • Australia/Oceania: Australia

That’s a total of 18 countries, as of July 2016, with the furthest being the European continent. North and South America are definitely on my list, at least within the next five years!

Are you in Korea/ are you Korean?

No,  I am no longer based in Korea and I’m not Korean. I am 100% Singaporean. Someday I may choose to be based there, but I have no plans in the near future to do so. My only link with Korea was my university exchange there in Spring to Summer of 2010 at Seoul National University. You can read my entries from that period to find out more about how life was like for me as a foreign exchange student back then!

What camera do you use?

I’m currently using an Olympus E-PL5 for longer trips.  If I’m lazy, or if I take shorter trips or am exploring my own city – Singapore, I typically use my mobile phone, which is presently a Samsung S7.

What languages do you speak?

I am not-very-effectively trilingual and speak a mix of English, Mandarin and Korean, in order of fluency.

What do you do besides travelling?

I have a full-time job, so I’m not travelling full-time, yet. From time to time, I also dabble in running, hiking, rock-climbing, Pilates and dragon boating. Am also a big coffee fanatic. You will see elements of these popping up in my trips.
