Hello, lovely readers! 🙂
I am a Southeast Asia enthusiast since high school and I am very much interested in learning everything about the different countries in the region — from politics to economy to culture and language. I have competed in ASEAN Quiz Shows back in high school and I was initially ‘forced’ to memorize facts about ASEAN and its member countries until I learned to love the region and every part of it. I am also currently a Professor of ASEAN Studies at the University of the Philippines Open University. Hence, and obviously, Southeast Asia is really close to my heart.
I have been to 8 countries in Southeast Asia so far. Four more destinations to go! Laos, Indonesia, Brunei Darussalam, and Timor Leste!
