Hello there! I find myself sitting on my laptop, on a somewhat sunny day in June, pondering what I should post for my first blog post. After some deliberation, I think it would be a good idea to introduce myself by listing 10 facts about myself. (02/06/2017)

*Update (16/03/2020): Hello, I'm slowly working my way through my blog, updating old blog posts, and I came across this one! It's been near three years since I posted this blog  

10 fun facts!

  • First things first, my name is Shawna.
  • I'm half Malaysian and half Scottish, and lived in Malaysia till I was 10 years old. 
  • I am a Christian!
  • I'm a recent business graduate, who is still trying to figure out what to do with life after uni.
    • (2020): I'm a not-so-recent graduate now, who has (for the moment) happily stumbled into the role of a content creator. 
  •  My love affair with Edinburgh began, four years ago, when I moved from Fife to study and I currently run an Instagram called @exploringedinburgh.
  •  I enjoy nothing better than a good walk, or rummaging through charity shops/vintage stores for bargains!
  •  I'm a bit of a crazy plant lady and yes, that does mean I name by plants..
  •  I have been a pescatarian for two years, with the hope that one day I'll be fully veggie!
    • 2020: I'm a vegetarian! 
  •  I'm definitely guilty for watching too many movies, and I have a soft spot for old movies with Cary Grant or Audrey Hepburn; but that doesn't mean I don't also enjoy a Jason Bourne or Fast and Furious movie.
  •  And lastly, I enjoy listening to a good audio-book, especially on train journeys. I'm currently listening and thoroughly enjoying "The Penguin Lessons" by Tom Michell, narrated by Bill Nighy.
    • 2020: I still enjoy audio-books, I'm currently listening to Shadow of the Wind but I've also found a love for physical books
Well, hopefully that list of random facts about myself has given you an idea of who the person behind this blog is, and I can't wait to start sharing reviews of cafes/restaurants I visit and documenting my explorations both within Scotland and beyond. So welcome, and I hope to see you again soon!
