But before the event and as one of the speakers, we were given 5 questions to answer and allow me to divvy up with you, what are those questions and my answers as well. I will also be sharing with you my topic during my short talk.


1. When did you start blogging and what motivated you to blog? 

I started blogging last April 2015 with a shallow reason to just get myself busy. One thing that propels me to blog is the people whom I have inspired and have altered their perception about life in general that the world where we live is so big and we should explore whatever God has provided for us to see and enjoy, especially the natural scenery.

2. What will your talk be all about? 

I would love to spill the beans about our attitude toward our passion, how we value and respect ourselves in order to value and respect others as well. Being honest and kind to whatever we do in life, it may be in our passion for writing or things that are closest to our hearts the most.

3. For new bloggers, what do you normally say or do to them to inspire them?

Write to inspire others, never write for fame and money, because when you write for money and fame you’ll get exhausted after months and years of blogging and you don’t earn and became famous. Your passion for writing will bring you far with the right attitude and mindset and you won’t end up empty at the end of the day, It’s something that makes you whole and complete as a blogger. Money and fame will come at the right time as your reward when you’re ready to embrace it. Focus on establishing your foundation first and your credibility as a blogger then you’ll reap what you sow.


4. Personally for you, what is blogging? How had it changed your life, if ever? 

Blogging for me is an essential means to influence others for good and a powerful way of changing people’s lives with the intention to inspire and help people understand that life is not just about what they already know, but discovering the things they haven’t known. Blogging had changed me a heap, I now learned to explore  the possibilities and have open the door to  a lot of opportunities for me to grow and be an inspiration to others.


5. What special info would you like to be included in your bio?

I may be small because of my physical existence, but I have a big heart to educate and inspire others through the things I do. I’m actually a frustrated singer and only my comfort room who have been constantly listening to my voice.

During the event, before I started talking about the attitude in blogging, I tackle first about what passion is all about in my own point of view.






  1. Wow! This post is really beautiful and inspiring. I’m always so energized when I read about people truly following passions and doing what they love most! I love the 5 H-Attitude! I actually wrote them down to reference when I’m uninspired! Thanks for sharing! Xx


  2. I don’t think it’s shallow at all for you to start a blog as a hobby or to keep yourself busy! I also agree that you shouldn’t write to become famous, you should write to inspire. Glad you are following your passions!


  3. Thanks for sharing these bits of inspiration. I’m relatively new to blogging and still trying to find my niche. It’s a lot of work, that’s for sure!


  4. I love your mission to help others through your blog. That is really important and something many bloggers often forget. Congratulations on being able to share your knowledge with new bloggers and thank you for taking the time to be both an inspiration to travelers and bloggers.



    A great advice indeed! Being Happy and Hungry provides fuel so we’ll keep on blogging despite challenges. Being Helpful is the mission, Honesty in your content enhances reputation. And being humble is the right attitude.

    Congratulations and keep it up!


  6. You had a very heart-felt talk. Congrats Lai. For sure you really are an inspiration to many. I love the “be honest with your content” part because in a world with so many lies, it’s so hard to find the truth so if everyone will just be honest then the world will be a better place. See it doesn’t just apply to blogging but also to life in general. 🙂


  7. I absolutely agree on being honest with your content. I believe that it is the very essence of our individuality – something that sets us apart from other travel bloggers.

    Great talk, Lai! Keep doing what you love.


  8. Blog because you feel being happy not being forced! I love this! hahaha. I missed the chance to hear such awesome topic with my bare ears because of conflicts of events. Congratulations for a great talk Master lai!


  9. Amazing words! The way you are passionate and are tenacious with your blogging has certainly helped inspire me and I believe most, if not, all of our fellow HIBsters. Keep up the great work!


  10. Wow, it seem you really have a great time with your talk master Lai. I can tell that the audience loved your talk and they had a really great time to listening to those inspiring words of yours. Too bad i was not able to attend this event. 😦


  11. I so like this post of yours! Some of us are doing quite the reverse. Others are starting their blogs because they want to be famous or what but in truth, someone gains followers if they believe in what the person can really do. I so love your 5 H’s! My fave is being humble. 🙂
