About Me

Hi, welcome to Fionism. 

If this is your first time here, my name is Fion. It's a great pleasure to meet you and thank you very much for dropping by my blog :D

I started blogging at the tender age of 14 under the inspiration of an internationally famous food blogger who's a close family friend. I ran that food blog for 4 years and had generated over 700,000 page views when I terminated it to start this blog that you are reading right now. The reason was that I wanted a space where I could express my thoughts and creativity and to share bits and pieces of my personal life with everyone instead of just focusing on one niche. 

Right before I left home to pursue my studies in Melbourne, I started this blog with the purpose of recording my life abroad to share with my friends. Also as a space to shamelessly post my selfies in addition to using it as a substitute for a hard drive because at the age of 19 I couldn't justify why would I need to spend a fortune to get a hard drive to keep my selfies secured if I could just post them online. 

As this blog evolved, I was privileged enough to befriend several overseas bloggers and readers as well as being approached by international companies with advertorial proposals. 

Now, here's a little about myself:

I was born in Hong Kong on the 12th February 1994 (proud Aquarius babe). I am half Taiwanese and half Malaysian. 

I launched my own brand Duo Emblem incorporating everything that I love into one - doodling, writing, photography, designing my own products and dealing with all things adorably quirky.

I grew up in Penang which is a small pretty island in Malaysia. 

I am a Finance and Accounting graduate from the University of Melbourne. 

My favourite colours are blue, white, silver, champagne, black and gold.

I'm a crazy unicorn and cat person.

I have an insane love for music and movies. 

I play the guitar, both electrical and acoustic. (still in the process of figuring out how to play my ukulele though).

I own a Midori Travelor's Notebook which holds my memories and keeps my life organised. I bring it pretty much everywhere with me even though I know that I won't be using it. Just bringing it with me makes me happy. 

I speak 6 languages - Korean being my 6th which I still need to put more effort into perfecting it. When the time comes, maybe I can just move there! Yes, kimchi is way better on that side!

Unlike those pretty, elegant and glamourous bloggers out there, I'm just an ordinary, straight-forward, bubbly sometimes unintentionally funny girl (oh, and most of the times I'm not wearing any makeup and hardly wears a dress). I just smile and laugh a lot, sometimes talk too much crap.  

I may be a combination of an angel and a devil but most importantly I'm unapologetically ME!

Do stay connected with me on my blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube because that's the easiest way to get to know me! :P
