About

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog!

My family and I have recently moved to Melbourne, Australia from Malaysia, and it’s been a journey of “starting over”, as people say. We are grateful for and happy with this new chapter in our lives, but of course, it’s not without its own set of challenges. So far though we are having a good time getting to know our new home and city.

Before this, I spent about 8 years in the media industry in Malaysia, as a radio newsreader + presenter + producer, as well as a TV newscaster. I was also heavily involved in the creative and performing arts in my church, with the focus on drama, acting, scriptwriting and training.

My husband and I have been blessed with two beautiful children, Amy and Alistair, and they are our pride and joy. Before them, however, we lost our firstborn Alexa to stillbirth, and I’ve written a book about the most difficult first year of grieving for her. You can also read my previous blog post about her here.

Besides work and family, I spend the rest of my time reading, writing and painting.

This blog is a place where I share my thoughts and passions, and I hope you’ll enjoy hanging around!

I would also love to hear from you, so feel free to leave comments and/or contact me any time!

Love,
Natalie
