Singapore – a city, a state and a country all in one.
Tell us about yourself?
I was born in Singapore and I’ve lived and worked almost all my 32 years here. For the last three, I’ve been working full-time in a local NGO. When I’m not writing about my travels on Rambling Feet, I go for a swim, meet friends and visitors from abroad over meals and research my next trip!
I’m also a big fan of motorsports such as Formula 1, rallying, MotoGP and Formula E. I probably caught the travel bug through attending races in places like Malaysia, Poland and Mexico over the last 12 years.
