De­scribe who you are and what you do.

I'm a blog­ger who loves to share about beauty, fash­ion and travel.

If time and money were no is­sue, where would you go and why?

Nor­way to see the North­ern Lights and to find out why it's ranked as the hap­pi­est coun­try in the world.

What are five things you couldn’t travel with­out?

• Shi­seido sun­screen • Clar­ins hy­drat­ing mask • La Mer cream

• A jacket

• Le­ica Q cam­era

If you were stuck on an is­land and could choose one com­pan­ion there, who would you want with you and why?

My dog, be­cause un­like many coun­tries where dogs are wel­comed in many places, Hong Kong has pretty strict rules about bring­ing your pets. If I were stuck on an is­land, I'd like to spend more time with my dog.

What has been your most mem­o­rable or unique travel ex­pe­ri­ence?

My road trip to Ari­zona, when I dis­cov­ered the art of na­ture.

What’s your favourite travel photo ever?

So many! Maybe the one with the blue and white houses and the one where I'm stand­ing in front of th­ese amaz­ing cherry blos­soms.

Any tips or se­crets for tak­ing a great travel photo?

Light­ing! I've found out that nat­u­ral light­ing is best after 3pm.

What’s the best thing you’ve bought on your trav­els?

The best thing from trav­el­ling is mem­ory, which money can­not buy.

Skydiving – yes or no?

No, but it's on my bucket list.

What books and blogs would you rec­om­mend to as­pir­ing trav­ellers?

On In­sta­gram: @ohh­cou­ture, @taramilk­tea and @va­ca­tions. For mag­a­zines, Condé Nast Trav­eler.

What ad­vice do you have for peo­ple who want to travel but feel fi­nan­cially stuck?

Fly bud­get air­lines (with con­nect­ing flights), stay in a hos­tel, cook your own meals and take free walk­ing tours.

How do you choose your next lo­ca­tion?

My trips are usu­ally im­promptu, but of course it de­pends on how many hol­i­days I have, the sea­son, the bud­get and where I feel like go­ing.

How many suit­cases do you bring?

Usu­ally a large one and one hand-carry.

What are your se­crets for pack­ing light? Or heavy?

Ac­tu­ally, I don't think about the weight. But I usu­ally pack three days be­fore the trip to make sure what items are the “must-bring” and I skip the “just-in-case” items.

What has been your scari­est travel ex­pe­ri­ence?

I was al­most in a car crash when I was in Italy.

What’s your typ­i­cal air­port at­tire?

A T-shirt with shorts or a pair of loose trousers, and a large travel bag or back­pack.

Where are you head­ing next?

I'm go­ing to Namibia in July.

What’s one thing you hate about trav­el­ling?

Flight de­lays.

From the list of coun­tries you’ve vis­ited, if you could choose one to stay in for the rest of your life, which would it be and why?

Aus­tralia, be­cause I like the weather and the over­all vibes.

If there’s one thing trav­el­ling has taught you, what is it?

To com­plain less and be more ap­pre­cia­tive. I've re­alised that I have de­vel­oped a grateful at­ti­tude, and I'm more ex­cited and thank­ful about life than I ever was be­fore.
