About the blogger
Mai is a Clothing Technology graduate from UP Diliman. A fashion design graduate turned Freelance Writer / Travel & Food Blogger, she now enjoys every moment in her change of careers.
She mostly blogs about her love for traveling, while documenting (with photos, travel cost sheets, etc.) her trips from different parts of the Philippines and Asia. She also aspires to travel around the world, and also hopes to publish her stories in God's pleasant time.
What is the inspiration behind your blog and how long has it been around?
Mai started blogging about her travels after realizing that she wanted to share the 'budget-conscious-wanderluster' in her. She started blogging in 2008.
She also grew up with a family of 13 members. And this meant getting trained to learn the disciplines of keeping everyday things on a budget. And ever since then, noting expense breakdowns, and making various itineraries for her family and friends made her hone this 'organizational' skill. Later, putting this to good use in terms of traveling local and international destinations.
How did you get into blogging?
Mai has gone past the stage of noting travel-related stuff on her notebook, which lead her into exploring the dainty features of a blog. She started on the Wordpress platform, which eventually lead to her transfer to Blogger.
What is your favorite blog post and why?
Mai's favorite blog post would have to be her very first entry: The Birth of Budget Biyahera . Her late father's influence has brought her to love traveling. He helped her embrace the wanderluster in her.
