So finally, I’ve decided to blog again. Twenty fifteen was such a huge year for me I feel like I can’t miss out on the opportunity of sharing with you guys the fun I’ve had! The travels, the experiences and the friends I made along the way – 2015 was truly a massive year for me!
I started blogging way back in 2005 in the Philippines. My blog once then was among the top 10 most visited blogs in the country. I made a few income out of blogging from back then as well. I was able to purchase my Macbook Pro back in 2012 from my income in blogging. How awesome is that?
I’ve remained anonymous with my first blog and I feel like I wasn’t enjoying at as much after some time. It tackled mainly local entertainment and popular culture. I did it for so long but I thought to myself I wasn’t being original. After 5 years of doing it, I decided to stop updating it. I did post a few updates every now and then but my heart wasn’t really into it anymore.
For this one, I’d like it to be different, I’d like it to be more personal, thus the name of it. For this new blog, I’d like to share a new chapter of my life, especially after moving here in Australia permanently almost 3 years ago from this writing.
This blog will be about me sharing my personal adventure of finding greener pastures in the home of kangaroos and koalas, the land down under, Australia.
It was June 2013, first day of winter, and the first winter of my entire existence! The family that I’m staying with here picked me up from the airport, drove around 45 minutes to my new home, rested and settled a bit. Right after, my housemates took me out to explore the city, which I was really keen on doing anyways. As soon as we’ve reached the city, I was greeted by the cold winter breeze, which I didn’t mind at all. I’d rather it be cold than hot and humid really. Although I enjoy a bit of Vitamin D sometimes. I took out and roamed around the beautiful city of Melbourne with my handy dandy camera, which was then my good old Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The camera on that phone took impressive shots by the way!
Check out some of my photos below taken in my first day in Melbourne.
Having to move to a new country alone was quite a struggle. I am currently still based in Melbourne where I did my studies for a year and a half, and after which I’ve received my residency. So yeah, Melbourne for me for a while, the world’s most liveable city. I surely can’t complain. And so far, it’s been good to me.
It is indeed quite a remarkable city and I am looking forward to more adventures. So stick along!
