Hello! My name is Steph, welcome to my blog. Here is a photo of me in my usual attire:

What’s my story?

I am a Melbourne girl currently living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Before this, I was in South Korea, teaching English to some incredibly cute (and cheeky!) munchkins 5 days a week. I am a bit of a thinker, and had ummed and ahhed about different things to do with my life without settling on what I thought was the perfect and ‘right’ job. I am a really passionate person, but I started to feel numb and disengaged from life, which was worrying (although I didn’t really see it at the time).

After a bit of an emotional breakdown somewhere around my 25th birthday, I stopped caring about what I ‘should’ be doing and just started doing what I wanted to do. I started a candle business (which many people thought was crazy) and then moved across the world, away from everything and everyone I knew, to see what I could do by myself. Funnily enough, I am a lot happier now!

Here are some things I like:

  • Eating
  • Silence
  • Eating in silence (only half kidding on that one folks!)
  • Watching The Shark Tank with my boyfriend Gavin
  • Reading a good book at home in my pyjamas and eating questionable things with no one around to judge
  • Friends! (I promise I have some)
  • Buying (and occasionally using) Korean cosmetics
  • Arranging surprise gifts and birthday parties for my loved ones
  • Playing with my kindergarten students, listening to their wacky stories and hearing them laugh <3
  • Muesli, yoghurt and banana – breakfast of champions
  • Ppyodagwi Hae jang guk (Korean pork spine stew)… so yum!
  • Iced mochas
  • Flowers (although all of mine seem to die, *sob*)
  • Cute socks
  • Skiing! And snow in general (particularly covert snowfights)
  • Success
  • Laughter

This is my place to share with the world those things which make me happy. I am currently living in Guri, Korea and finding my way as I go. I have taken a million photos and videos, so this blog will be very ~postmodern~ and full of ~multimedia~… I hope you enjoy 🙂
