Hello, if you haven’t guessed yet, my name is Clarisa.
I also go by my nickname, Clarice.

I am in my early 30s, and I was born and raised in the Philippines, but I now live in the small, sunny island of Singapore. I studied bachelor’s in IT, and I currently work as a Business Analyst in the healthcare industry.

I have a wide range of interests: from reading books (my favourite genres are contemporary fiction and war-related), binge-watching movies and TV series to watching sports like tennis and Formula 1. I am also fascinated with both digital and film photography. But what I love most is travelling — I love visiting different places, especially cities filled with skyscrapers, and even old cities where I can appreciate culture and history. Some of my travelling bucket list includes going on a Eurotrip; riding a hot air balloon in Bagan, Myanmar; visiting Sagrada de Familia in Barcelona; and skydiving in Dubai.

This blog is my shot at blogging again. You will mostly read things that I enjoy, my travels and adventures, and stories happening in my life. I have been blogging since I was in high school and I have owned various blogs through the years — some were abandoned and some really didn’t last long enough. Hopefully, it will be different here.

Let me share my stories again. Happy reading and welcome!
