About me

Native of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo who returned to discover her roots, mainly through the lens of tourism. I love everything outdoors and think that connection to nature is a value that should be cultivated from a young age for everybody to have an interest in protecting and preserving it. Fiercely passionate about travel done the right way - where host and visitor both benefit, and environment and culture not compromised.
