As you may or may not know, I am joining a wonderful, once in a lifetime competition called the ‘
Big Blog Exchange‘ where 16 bloggers from all around the world get to swap places with each other for 10 days, all paid for!
I have even written a post about my reasons to why I want to be a part of this competition which you can read
This post however will be a compilation of photos that I have taken during my travels which I wish to share it with all of you :) Hope you’ll enjoy it!
One thing I like about backpacking and staying in hostels is that I get to meet lifelong friends along the way! Rachel and I met Gime and Tamara from Argentina when we were visiting Vang Vieng and clicked instantly! – Vang Vieng, Laos (2013)
Admiring our shadows as we walked and posed on a suspension bridge. That’s me on the right, holding my hand out. – Penampang, Sabah (Malaysian Borneo)
The crowning of the new 2007 Unduk Ngadau winner, Jo-Anna Henley Rampas. Unduk Ngadau pageants feature young ladies from the various districts in Sabah, Malaysia. This pageant is to celebrate the beauty of the ladies from the 30 or so indigenous tribes in Sabah and it is a yearly event which falls during the Harvest Festival (Kaamatan Festival) on 30th and 31st August.
My collection of postcards which I have collected over the years. To date, I have about 300 or so postcards from various parts of the world; either bought by me during my travels or given by friends and family who traveled overseas.

Locals are definitely the best tour guides to have! This is my classmate Wei Chien and her dad who were incredibly hospitable during my friend, Jayson and my stay in Ipoh.
