Hello there! I find myself sitting on my laptop, on a somewhat sunny day in June, pondering what I should post for my first blog post. After some deliberation, I think it would be a good idea to introduce myself by listing 10 facts about myself.

  • First things first, my name is Shawna.
  •  I'm a recent business graduate, who is still trying to figure out what to do with life after uni.
  •  I'm half Malaysian and half Scottish, and lived in Malaysia till I was 10 years old.
  •  I am a Christian and loving it!
  •  My love affair with Edinburgh began, four years ago, when I moved here to study and I currently run an Instagram called @exploringedinburgh.
  •  I enjoy nothing better than a good walk, or rummaging through charity shops/vintage stores for bargains!
  •  I'm a bit of a crazy plant lady and yes, that does mean I name by plants..
  •  I have been a pescatarian for two years, with the hope that one day I'll be fully veggie!
  •  I'm definitely guilty for watching too many movies, and I have a soft spot for old movies with Cary Grant or Audrey Hepburn; but that doesn't mean I don't also enjoy a Jason Bourne or Fast and Furious movie. Eclectic I know. 
  •  And lastly, I enjoy listening to a good audio-book, especially on train journeys. I'm currently listening and thoroughly enjoying "The Penguin Lessons" by Tom Michell, narrated by Bill Nighy.
Well, hopefully that list of random facts about myself has given you an idea of who the person behind this blog is, and I can't wait to start sharing reviews of cafes/restaurants I visit and documenting my explorations both within Scotland and beyond. So welcome, and I hope to see you again soon!
