About Interestingly Awesome
Interestingly Awesome is a blog run by me, created to share my journey in creating something amazing out of my life- and hopefully inspire you.
Who am I?
Hello! I am Chee Yang, an auditor (currently based in Singapore) and the owner of this blog Interestingawesome.com. I am also an affiliate of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) which is an accountancy related professional qualification.
A quick story on myself and how this blog came about.
I have always wanted to travel for a bit before entering into the working world. But instead of doing what I’ve wanted, I started working immediately after I have graduated (the pressure you had when all your peers begun working).
Being stuck in the working cycle makes me think a lot about how I wish my life would have been. I have been ‘wanting’ and ‘wishing’ for a lot of things but instead of actually doing it, I choose to think about how cool it will be. Pretty sure many of you can relate to this very well.
In August 2016, I took a break from my job and solo backpacked for 2 months in Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Hong Kong (something that I have been wanting to do for years). The feeling of actually doing something instead of just thinking about it felt amazing. It was that exact moment that I vow to live my life as interestingly as I can and this is what this blog is all about. To live my life to the fullest.
Why create this blog
This is not just another blog on my travels but a blog on my journey in creating something amazing out of my life.
We all have 168 hours a week and I do work during the day and the hours can be LONG. But I am a believer that if you want something, all you need to do is to find the time and take action. And this is what this blog is all about. A platform where I take action and share my journey.
No more wishing and thinking. Just taking action!
What can you expect?
Travel: I love to travel. Though I am not doing it full time, I occasionally find time for travels. I will be sharing guides and experiences throughout my past and current travel!! My goal is to travel 1 country at a time and hopefully travel to every part of the world, deemed accessible.
Money: I am inspired by Pat Flynn and many other blogs in earning online. I have been trying different platform and different ways to earn online. There are many ways to earn side income as the opportunity is endless. The tough part is finding something that suits you. I have tried the freelance platform on Fiverr, and created some courses on Udemy. But I have stopped as I have no passion for it.
I am currently working on my niche site project where you can follow where I document my entire journey in building a niche site from scratch. I am not an expert in this but do follow my journey in my search to freedom.
Other: I am picking up on investments, learning up Chinese and etc. Do follow on my journey and progress updates.
To sum, this is a platform where you can expect lots of sharing on my journey. I hope it inspires you to make something amazing out of your life too.
