1. Tell us about yourself.

I’m Baz and I was born and raised in Penang, I came to KL to further my study about 8 years ago and currently I’m working in creative industry.

2. What is your childhood dream? Did you make it happen?

Can’t really remember a childhood dream, I guess everyone has a similiar childhood dream, either is teacher, lawyer or doctor, as seen from TV. But what makes me realized my dream is when I started to travel, and I thought of running a guesthouse in Penang so that I can meet more people around the world.

3. Describe how you first get into blogging?

I first get into blogging dated back to 2006 which was 10 years ago, at the time, I was just blogging as a hobby, I stopped blogging at the age of 21, but I started to blog again was when I first travel to Thailand in 2010 and I thought I should document the travel itinerary that I’ve planned.

4. Besides blogging, what do you do as passion? Do you have other passion to pursue?

As mentioned earlier, I work in a creative industry, is my passion and I have strong interest in digital advertising and entertainment. 

5. What type of blogger do you want to be? Share your thoughts about it.

I’m a travel blogger, I blog because people has been asking me about the places I visit, how to get there, how much does it cost to travel to this country etc. and I thought, since I’m the one who usually plan for a holiday trip and I did my own research before visiting another country, I plan everything in details from daily routine of where to go, I search for best place to stay such as budget guesthouse to hotel, I dig for hidden places and interesting stories when I’m abroad, and I should share my experiences to others. 

6. What does the word success means to you?

Success means I get to do what I loves to do without restriction, is not an easy path, just like how I would like to run a gueshouse, it takes a lot of efforts and learning to actually start running the business.

7. What is your biggest dream now?

To run a guesthouse in Penang.

8. If you are given a million dollars, what would you do with that money?

First, I would take 2 years time to travel to places that I wanted to travel, to learn about how other people run gueshouse or hostel in other countries and start the business.

9. Why not share with us your happiest moment in your life & what encouragement would you give to someone who is at their worst time of their life, someone who is facing depression?

The happiest moment is when I get to go back to Penang and spend time with my family. Everyone has to go through a hard time in their life, whether is about family, love or money, but what will brings you up is your belief, if you think you’re in the worst time of your life, and if you have a home to go back to or food to feed your hunger, you are already one of the lucky millions in the world as there are still people living in poverty in another country and another child may be starving to death in the next second.

10. What is your proudest achievement or accomplishment you have achieved in life?

To be able to travel to so many countries at my age.

11. Can you name some of your favourite bloggers and why? Who would you love to collaborate with?

I would love to collaborate with a few travel bloggers which are also instagrammers, particularly Tara Milk Tea, she took a lot of pretty pictures to document her travel and is really inspring.

12. What would you say that is the biggest challenge about blogging?

First, I would say travel blogger is not easy, you have to know every details and not to provide wrong information to others, and of course the biggest challenge is to travel abroad because that needs a lot of savings. 😛

13. What would you say that is the greatest satisfaction of being blogger?

When people appreaciate what you wrote and they thank you for giving them a helping tip.

14. If you have a magic ward, what is the one thing you would ask for and why?

I would ask for the superpower to teleport so that I can travel instantly.

15. What advice would you give to other aspiring bloggers? Any general advice to those have big dreams?

A lot of people started blogging thinking that they might earn money out of it or getting sponsored, but in order to earn that honour, you need to first blog with passion and have good contents to attract followers or readers. Think of what you can write the best, it must be something that you would really want to tell everyone in the world, just like how I’m proud of my travel itinerary.
