About Me

Hey, how’s it going? Thanks for visiting my blog.

My name is Paolo Avis and I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. I spent majority of my twenties and first few years of my thirties in the busy city-state of Singapore.

After over a decade in Singapore, I felt I needed some dramatic change in my life. Adelaide was never my first choice, but it kind of accidentally fell into my lap.

I hear living in South Australia is an acquired taste. I never fully understood it at first, until I’ve personally experienced moving here. Coming from a bustling Asian city, Adelaide was initially too laid-back, too quiet, and too uneventful for me. It became a challenge for me then to discover places where I can be myself and actually have fun.

As the days progress, I’m now building new routines and activities that make me fall in love in my new hometown, Adelaide, South Australia, It has been challenging journey but exciting at the same time.

I’ve created this blog and vlog channels to reach out to my fellow migrants and those who are also planning to migrate to South Australia for them to learn more about how it’s like living here.

Join me in my journey as I fall in love with South Australia more and more each day…
