Where do you live:
Los Angeles
Short Bio:
I love to travel and I'm lucky enough to get to do that for a living as a travel writer and editor. Some of the places I've traveled to on assignment include China, the Dominican Republic, Hong Kong, Israel, Jamaica, Jordan and Mexico.

In the past, I've worked for Los Angeles Magazine, the Vegetarian Times, Better Nutrition, WSAToday (a footwear trade mag), MBE (a supplier chain diversity trade mag) and others. But, by far, writing about travel has been my favorite subject (although food and fashion come in as a close second and third).

I love everything about travel—from the highs to the lows—and I started this blog becuase I want to share my travel experiences with you—and hear about yours, too.

Taking Off

First things first: I am a travel writer and editor. I get paid to travel the world and write about it. Not a bad gig—I know—and I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve been able to have because of it.



My biggest confession? Usually, when I go on these trips, I’m not really incognito. I don’t own a corporate credit card under a fake name or run into bathrooms to furiously jot down my notes between courses. Sometimes, I’ll admit,…

Oh it's totally fine.
How cute is she!

Oh is that your cousin in the homepage? How fun, getting to travel around the world to tell stories to students!

Well I'm born in Malaysia. Hahaha. If you ever come down here, let me know!

I'd really consider the States if I've got a good offer. Did your cousin work for publishing companies? Is she a writer too? And sure, do ask her!

Ah SWEET! Another fellow Chinese friend. You made my day. Can you speak any Chinese?

I'm based in Malaysia. I really hope I stand a chance somewhere, and I'd hate to hear that my location would be the barrier. Because I'm willing to travel/move overseas for a good job. I've had an internship in Australia but it's not on writing. It's really kind of you to offer some kind of help, but will that be troublesome?

Also, thank you for the blog follow. I'm humbled. =)

Thank you, love. I haven't really tried publishing companies, but I'm really considering it. It's hard, since there are so many good writers out there, and I'm intimidated/worried that I'm not good enough. I've written to a couple of mag companies, but I haven't heard from one since and got turned down by another. No experience, you see. Sigh. How did you start off?

And can't help but wonder, are you mixed? You have an Asian last name. Well you look Asian.

Thanks, we LOVE yours too!

Thanks for the compliment and friend request. =)
I envy that you've written for so many mags, and still writing for one!
Where were you born, may I ask?
