    Fire

       

    Once upon a time, I wanted to start a Blog.

    A place where I could log my experiences and create a scrapbook to look back on my life — while hoping that at least one poor sod would read it (that person most likely being myself).

    With a full-time job, I have limited time to dedicate to my love of blogging. I’m thrilled to announce that as of today, I’m free as a bird. I quit my job to travel the world. They say your dreams. I’ll let you know if it was the right decision.

    Today I relaunch this Blog with an editorial called Fire, shot by super talented Photographer: Ella H and creative Makeup Artist: Rachel at the Tate in London. A wonderful way to say goodbye to my beautiful city where I have lived for five years.

    I name this post, Fire because red is the colour of energy, passion, and action; it’s also a symbol of luck in Chinese which I’ll be needing when embarking on my new journey. This ASOS billowing red chiffon maxi dress could quickly breathe new life into anyone.

    ProjectM is a style, travel, beauty, and lifestyle Blog.

    I will be launching my travel and foodie posts early 2015.

    You’re welcome to join me in my adventure.

    About

    About:

    Hi, I’m Monica: Wanderluster & Dreamer. I fill these pages with my life & adventures.

    What are you like if I met you in person?:

    Weird. I’m the girl who always looks lost and has her shirt on back to front. I’m that girl.

    What’s your blog about?:

    It’s a lifestyle, style, travel and food blog — all of my favourite things, across various chapters of my life, under one roof. My aim is to be different from the other bloggers. I want to give you more than pictures of my face and outfits in various angles. I want to pass on my life-learnings to you. I want us to build a life we love, life in colour.

    What is ProjectM?:

    In 2014, I decided to quit my job to live my dream of travelling around the world, which I can wholeheartedly say was the best decision of my life. Subsequently, throughout my blog, I encourage you to run for your dreams. My blog originally launched as a style diary. During my backpacking adventure, I released a travel category. I named my experience ‘ProjectM’. In 2016, I changed my blog name to The Wong Blog, but I kept the name of my travels.

     Are you also a model?:

    Yes. I’m a commercial model (the non-catwalk kind). I occasionally appear in adverts and films. My portfolio is here.

    How do you stay so slim when you eat so much?:

    You can read about that here

    What camera do you use?:

    I use my iPhone 6S – as a big camera is a faff to carry around. I’ve recently brought this DSLR camera to take get better at photography — tips would be much appreciated.

    Can I contact you?: 

    Yes, of course! If you have a burning question, please get in touch via my social media channels.

    Lots of love Monica x
