About Me

Welcome to my blog. I’ve always wanted to keep a blog, but I just never got around to it. You’re probably wondering why my blog is so random and how I chose the name. I have a terrible case of wanderlust that I need to fulfill, but in the meantime I’m just another university graduate navigating herself through post-graduate life. I enjoy watching Youtube, from beauty gurus to bloggers, so I thought I would incorporate everything I enjoy into my blog- travel, makeup and style (even though I am by NO means a makeup or style expert), cooking, reading, etc. I chose my name because although I am not well traveled –yet– I am planning on blogging about all of my travels; hapa means half Asian, which I am. I have a lot of photographs from my recent travels to still upload, so the travel portion is in the making! Thanks for stopping by🙂
