Travelogue host KayLi Lum's story

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller

A graduate in Communications, I’ve always had the passion for the Performing Arts, having been trained in physical theatre back in Kuala Lumpur, and performing in theatre productions in Malaysia & Singapore. I was later given a grant by the Ministry of Arts of Malaysia to study Voice & Speech in Vancouver and furthered my craft in Film Acting in Toronto.

Pairing my degree in Communications with my love for Travel and tackling Social / Environmental issues, I landed myself a job at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in Geneva, which allowed me to travel extensively within Europe!

When I’m not spending time with my best friends Google and Baidu, or burying my head in a book over a cuppa, I enjoy pushing the limits of my body – delivering flying kicks, doing flips, and conditioning my body into becoming a rubber-band! Who knows, I may become a Shaolin nun someday...

I find immense joy in outdoor activities, from a simple walk in the park, to bicycling from Switzerland to France, to swimming with Whalesharks and Dolphins in the wild! All of which I would go through again, in a heartbeat! I look forward to experiencing more thrilling adventures in the future!

The world is my playground, and my classroom. I am truly grateful to be offered this opportunity to travel and learn with Travelogue, and most importantly, to relate my experience with viewers who share the same insatiable curiosity for life!

Traveling expands our world-view. It makes us a "bigger", more understanding person, and enables us to embrace diversity (if we are open to the idea)... And you’ll soon realize that Diversity is just what makes the world so much more colourful and interesting!

Travel, when you can! It is the greatest form of education!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
