How it all began
Growing up, Mum was always very Singaporean so I felt Singaporean. But I spent many important years in Australia so many of my friends were Aussie. I ended up with this blend, keeping my "Asianness" while mostly being very comfortable as a person in Australia.
Once I hit my late teens, you wonder a little deeper about identity. And that's when I started taking more trips back and forth. The family in Sing was a good excuse to get permission to travel, even on my own. So I did that until in my early 20s which is when I started hitting more of SouthEast Asia with friends. Southeast Asia is perfect for that -- budget travel, young people and still a very very good time. It's clear you are on vacation there. You feel like walking about an alien culture and you have all this awesome parties on the beach and relaxing on beach resorts... And also the potential to get very very lost -- just part of travelling.
Now that I'm in my mid-20s, my feet are itchy to go further. The plan is first to criss-cross Australia and then go further in phases. Europe, Africa, Antarctica.. it's al part of the plan. Eventually.
So I'm here to dream out loud, lose my breath, get excited about booking tickets, find/share tips and travel, travel, travel!
