(I should have posted this on Thursday but I was distracted by LIFE. Hope it’s not too late.)
If you came from the Vulcan Post article 9 Malaysians Who Quit Their Jobs And The Rat Race to Travel Around The World (which was cross-posted on MSN), a big welcome! Let me give you a quick history of the woman behind this blog and all that travelling.
I’m Yun Qing. Originally from Sabah, Malaysia. Ten years ago, I left my hometown Kota Kinabalu to study at the National University of Singapore.
I stayed in Singapore after graduation. To be honest, it’ll be hard for me to go back home to work because of the economy.
After working for three years, I left my job in 2012 to travel around the world. My definition of “round the world” is a circle around the globe.
I wasn’t keen on the nomadic lifestyle so I set a budget which then determined how long I could travel. I estimated that travelling for 4.5 months was reasonable for my budget so I did just that.
Then I came back to Singapore. I found another job. And I wrote a book. (I don’t want to bore you with details so I skipped some parts.)
These days, I haven’t been travelling much. I have been busy in Singapore though, trying out new things to see which I want to make a bigger part of my life. I’m glad to report that improv (improvisational theater) is one big part now.
