Looking for help with your business travel? Find out how I can help here
I am originally from Sabah, East Malaysia, more popularly known as North Borneo. In the 80s, the roads in Sabah were not well developed and being that Borneo is an island, I have always travelled on the plane since I was an infant, coast to coast in Sabah, to Kuala Lumpur, as well as to Brunei. You could say I’m a seasoned flyer.
I am now your Travel Counsellor based in Dubai, I have lived in Dubai since 2016. Being a mother of 3 beautiful children, I have found Dubai to be an excellent playground for my family to grow in a globally diverse community. As they say, Dubai is in the middle of the world!
To date, I have travelled to over 20 countries and counting! I started my career in a multinational corporate company, and I was a frequent business traveller for 14 years until I decided to make my travel passion my business!
It was in July 2018 that I first started my solo travel to Prague, Czech Republic. Since then, I have covered five countries as a solo traveller, eventually, I brought my three children along with me as a solo mom traveller to 3 countries. Now, travelling with kids is never easy but solo with kids? Feel free to contact me, I would love to chat about it.
My personal favourite destination as a solo traveller so far is Tokyo and Prague. These two cities are what I might describe as cities with attitude, a mix between rich histories and current cultures. Of course, I try not to be biased, growing up in Borneo and on my yearly trip there, I will always visit the beautiful blue seas, unique rainforests, pigmy elephants and Orangutan sanctuaries.
What’s your next dream destination? I would love to design your personalized getaway, be it fast or slow-paced; a honeymoon, a wellness retreat, luxury, adventure or cultural trips, nature or beach getaways, annual family ski trips, anywhere in the world; be it just you, you and your family or your group of friends. With my years of travel experience, I can assure you that I can help design just the right itinerary for your next destination, whatever your travel needs may be.
I am available by phone, online, or by personal appointment. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your travel needs.
