Hey, nice to meet you! Welcome to our adventure! I am thrilled to have you visiting our blog. This is Shay writing on this page with my teammate, Ed, partner for life, personal photographer, a travel buddy, personal coach who motivates and supports me with daily healthy diet and helps me wash dishes once in a while! Indeed a wonderful husband.
We are young couple, born and raised in the Philippines. But now, we are expats living in Singapore since 2010. We travel on free time, weekends and on holidays.
I am Filipino; hence, Filipino or Tagalog is my first language. Am not a journalist nor a professional writer so please bear with my grammar. You can laugh about it – if you want to. But I would appreciate if you can correct me and share with me your inputs.
We’ve set up this blog to document our travel experiences, thoughts and ideas as well as our aspiration in life. We’re never going to brag but we want to inspire people to live life to the fullest. We write the good and the bad of the places we visit; we think it’s important both for ourselves (and our own memories) as well as for readers of this blog, some of whom may be looking to follow in our footsteps. You’ll find a bit of everything: stories, photos, and lots of information and tips on the many places we’ve visited.
About this Blog
We are beach-buddy! Hubby was born in a countryside surrounded by beautiful beaches. So he’d grown up with beaches as his playground. Nobody taught him to swim, he just learned on his own. While yours truly, doesn’t know how to swim without life vest on, yet so in love with beaches. I love nature. I believe in nurturing the earth and in joining meditations for body healing.
Life would not be possible without the sun. I love gazing the sun! Both sunrise and sunsets. We all know just how romantic, inspiring and utterly Instagram-able they can be, but most of us only make time for sunsets when we’re on vacation, as if that calming, beautiful moment can only occur when we’re in an exotic place, free from everyday obligations.
Seriously. By witnessing the beauty and awe of the sunrise and sunset, wherever you are you can slow down your perception of time.
What better way to practice being aware of the present moment than by watching the literal passing of time as the sun rises and sinks the horizon?
Our lifestyle is simple. Just living a balanced life, living in a moment and always feeling grateful.
I practice daily yoga and promote cellular nutrition through daily food supplementation and healthy diet.
I work full-time in the Environmental Engineering Industry and an entrepreneur as well. Yes, I do love my job but I often seek for balance. That’s the reason why I love to act like a tourist during weekends.
While Ed, is always on the road – he is an ultra-marathoner, a certified sports enthusiast – he can play lawn tennis, billiards and table tennis. By the way, he loves basketball too. Not to mention his frustration of being PBA/NBA player. 😂 Yes, I did mention he’s a swimmer but a certified PADI diver too. And he can go to work – back and forth just cycling.
He works as a full-time Principal Engineer in a Semiconductor industry and he’s truly passionate about his job. At the same time, a good household helper too. 😂
We hope our blog helps and inspires, in turn we appreciate any feedback or ideas!
This is us.
