About Me 2018-05-08T13:53:27+00:00

Dear great readers, my name is Keith and I’m from the beautiful city of Singapore! Boring as it sounds, I always try not to be as boring as the country I am from! haha opps. Anyway, I am a Singapore Travel Writer and Photographer! 🙂

Where should I start talking about myself? Perhaps start with my life values? I am a person driven by 5 values in life:

1) Family

I come from a humble family and I have a beautiful and lovely family, who I really love! Always supportive and shaping me as a person. Family is not only an important thing but it’s everything! We don’t get to choose our family, because they are god’s gift to me, so as I am to them! 🙂

The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege.

2) Spiritual Belief

Basically, Paulo Coelho had sum it up for me in my spiritual belief! 🙂

“All religions lead to the same God, and all deserve the same respect. Anyone who chooses a religion is also choosing a collective way for worshipping and sharing the mysteries. Nevertheless, that person is the only one responsible for his or her actions along the way and has no right to shift responsibility for any personal decisions on to that religion.”

I truly believe the faith of humanity and sincerely pray for all mankind to seek for equality, peace and harmony! 🙂

3) Buddies and Friends

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity! Love love love my buddies! Besides my lovely family, they are also important pillars in my life! Cliche as it sounds, I can’t live without these amazing people in my life! They are also a reason for me to look forward to every Friday’s gathering when we will share our weekly updates and stories! Well, if nobody else are interested, I know at least I have 5 other who is always willing and cares about ME! Yes, it’s all about YOU as a person and nothing else! No judgment and no prejudice, just pure fun and support in life! It’s great, isn’t it?

Amazing buddies in my life

Don’t forget, best friends are the siblings God forgot to give us!

Friends are siblings

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable! If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other!

4) Travel Passion

Traveling is the great true love of my life! I am loyal and constant in my love for travel. I know some people feel that travelling is “impossible”, “challenging”, “tough”, “fearful” or “expensive” – I just don’t care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it’s my passion and decision. YOLO and I must do something for myself. Because it’s exactly me and represents one part of my values and passion in life!”

People may think I am wasting my money, or time. People may wonder why I travel extensively, but these people don’t know traveling is the only thing I can buy in this world that makes me richer! I have gain and learned so much!

  • I was inspired by the Africans and learned what contentment is from the tribes.
  • I was amazed by how people live in the arctic circle in Iceland and Scandinavia!
  • I was grateful and fortunate after knowing the sad history from my near neighbours – Indo-China (Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam)
  • I better appreciated and was attracted to the super friendly and amazing Latin Americans’ culture in Brazil!
  • I felt more safe and really enjoyed travelling in the middle east more than anywhere else in the world!
  • Don’t get me wrong, I always miss home when I travel, cos Singapore will always be my home, my family, my buddies, friends and my pillar support, but seeing the world is amazing! I truly grateful for every travel opportunities and experiences! 🙂

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. Because I have the passion in traveling and seeing the world, many friends encouraged me to set up this blog to share my experiences, to inspire others on my stories, to entertain my friends with my encounters and to amazed them with my photos!

To me, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Wherever I go will become part of me somehow and I travel not to escape life but for life not to escape me! Traveling doesn’t become an adventure until you leave yourself behind and discover yourself again! You don’t need to be rich in order to travel cos a journey is best measured in friends rather than in miles! 🙂

Come take a look at my random photos around the world! 🙂

5) Earn A Honest Living

I should say I am grateful that I can earn a honest living and to travel. I usually love telling people that I am a “Dolphin Trainer”! haha There is a story to it, but I will post it later! Look out for my post in France (coming soon). haha

Keeping Fit with Colleagues

Keeping Fit with Colleagues

Oh, I need to thank my amazing colleagues aka friends who always be supportive and consistently encouraging! Not just my passion in traveling but also at work and even in life! Really grateful to have them as my colleagues or friends! 🙂

They never be bored listening to my blabbering stories or complains (I’m not negative but you know shits happen sometimes! haha)

Alright, enough of my 5 important values in life! Now I should proceed in sharing my personality, likes and dislikes, so you will truly know me A LOT MORE! haha

First of all… I am…. haha

Okay, perhaps you will realise or eventually come across KJS! KJS (Keith Jump Shot) is something unique and copyrighted only to Keith Yuen! haha I have been doing this around the world! haha Sort of my signature jump and I need to thank the people (usually the random strangers) to help me most of the time. I gotta teach them how to use my camera and it will never be one shot one kill! haha Meaning I gotta jump a couple of times before getting the right KJS! Maybe Jaime Gunn (Ms America) can testify this for me! haha Still appreciate their patience and the amazing photos of my KJS! 🙂

  • Ophidiophobia

Well, I love eating… and I can eat tonnes of food haha, and I am a vegetarian! Meaning I don’t eat any kind of meat (be it white or red meat, I don’t kill or eat them). However, I do eat dairy products such as eggs, milk or cheese (without rennet). That differentiates me the from the vegans (strictly nothing from animals).

Anyway, please don’t be disappointed with me, I will still introduce nice food abroad BUT they will all be vegetarian restaurant and food! Trust me… they are equally amazing! 🙂 I love spicy food, so for spicy lovers… let’s SHARE information!!! haha

*Must check out my famous fellow SG Blogger Ms Fangky Tan at her vegetarian food blog ilovemyveg.blogspot.sg

Alright, at this point of time, I think if you read every single word I wrote about myself on this page, you are probably

  1. A great fan of mine! 🙂
  2. Suffering an overdose of Keith! 🙂
  3. You are super duper nice person! 🙂
  4. You are a great awesome reader! 🙂
  5. You most likely going to like my facebook page, follow instagram & twitters or subscribe to my blog! 🙂

I promise I will try my best to deliver good stuff for your eyes! 🙂 Well, I’m an inspired travel blogger… remember? LOL

For fellow bloggers, be it travel bloggers, social bloggers, facial bloggers, food bloggers, fashion bloggesr, commercial bloggers, selfie bloggers and etc… or not just pure leisure readers, I hope you will somehow be entertained or love my traveling posts, stories shared or photos.  I traveled a lot; because I hate having my life disrupted by routine and I definitely would love to receive your random comments, encouragements or suggestions. Please feel free to drop me a comment or a “like” if you can! I promise I will be nice and not nasty to you! In fact, 99.9% of the people will usually say i am a nice chap! haha 0.1% is probably my family/buddies who call me by my pet peeves! haha Maybe 0.001% of people may dislike me but never show it up front! phew…  haha 🙂 I know you are nice, cos nice people attract nice mates! haha 🙂

Have fun exploring and reading… 🙂
