Hello there!

I’m so glad you’re here at The Atlas Edit! My name is Stephanie and I’m the (wo)man behind The Atlas Edit.

You probably ended up here because just like me, you have an insatiable thirst for trotting the globe, or are just curious about travel.

I hope you join me on my adventures of conquering the globe!

about me page

So, who is this wo(man) of The Atlas Edit?

I’m a 20-something Malaysian who has been fortunate enough to have seen quite a bit of our amazing little planet. I started traveling before I could even remember. My family was huge on traveling and would take family trips annually, of which I have little to no memory of especially during my younger days 🙁 I have the memory of a goldfish (though recent studies has found that goldfish actually have pretty good memory, so…).

Now, I’ve taken that wanderlust dust from my parents and made it my own. I’ve been to almost 40 countries and I’ve only seen 12% of the world! It still amazes me how immensely huge our planet is, and I am working my way through it!


…was born and bred in a southern town of Malaysia called Johor Bahru (right next to Singapore!).

…lived abroad in Perth, Western Australia for 5 years where I discovered my fear of spiders, and love for grocery shopping

…take great pleasure in binge-watching trashy reality TV (Real Housewives, anyone?)

…am borderline obsessed with the TV show, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Throw me a F.R.I.E.N.D.S reference and I’ll love you forever!

…looooove animals, and would like to own a farm one day.

…have a toy poodle named Albus Dumbledore who makes it so hard for me to leave home. We call him Lumpy.

…identify as a hybrid nomad, as I spend most of the year traveling but I still always return to my home in Malaysia after every trip.
