My passions include music, travel and photography. I’m not a great photographer, neither am I a great writer. But I love to blog because it gives me an avenue to both record my travel stories and publish my photos (Unfortunately Facebook and Instagram are horrible in compressing photos). The reason I named the blog “Xien Explores” is because I believe life is meant to be explored. Not just in the travel sense. Whether it’s learning a new skill or picking up new knowledge, life is a lot more exciting if we keep an open mind. While the blog revolves around travel photography, I didn’t want to limit it. So from time to time, expect some oddball posts that have nothing to do with the rest of the posts.
Welcome to my world!
Most of the newer travel posts would come with a “Travel Guide” section at the bottom should you want to explore the locations yourself. I hope it would be helpful and feel free to shoot questions in the comments section.

I am enjoying reading your posts and viewing your photos. For someone with a quarter life crisis, you seem to be managing it quite well! Good luck with figuring it out, and keep writing!
Thanks for the encouragement! =)
I think this blog is and escape from routine life. Perhaps I would never figure it out at all and maybe that’s the whole point of life.
I like that idea! 🙂
But if you will, please do let the rest of us know! 🙂
Xien! I keep checking your blog for more inspirational photos and interesting stories! 🙂

I didn’t know Forest Gump was popular in other country’s lol, but its nice to meet you. I’m a photographer as well and love your work. I’m definitely following, your writing style is very creative also.
Yes, I remember when I was a kid, there was a wide coverage of the movie and Tom Hanks. It left a deep impression in me I guess.
Thanks for following my blog, looking forward to your future comments! =)
Praise the Lord, i believe it’s divine connection tt brought me here n indeed i love ur writings! Deep in my heart I kno i m not here to read ur blogs but to deliver a divine message to u abt ur life!
Yes i agreed lots ppl wants 2 live their life 2 d fullest but deep in their heart there is somehow an emptiness n loneliness tt cldnt b explained ….. their heart jst cannot b filled w contentm irregardless of how mch efforts they take to b happy! This is d dilemma tt most of ppl is sufferings b it d rich or poor…2 d extend some goto end their life jst 2 get rid of that awful feelings in d heart…….
Yes, times flies very fast! Its good tt u asked urself now at tis age “wats life abt!” rather than till u went thru all d sufferings n darkness in life to b realized d true purpose of life!
Let me fulfill d divine order here 2 answer all ur questions abt life bro Zen, wat a coincident, my son is hvg d same name! Do u kno who is Jesus? I do hope u say Yes as its truly sad for those tt never heard abt His great name! Yes, Jesus is d Son of God, He is d Light n Saviour tt our Father in heaven sent 2 d earth to reveal His great love. 2 all of us. John 3:16 Jesus is d only PerfectOne in eyes of God who is sinless n blameless n came 2 die n forgive all our sins past, present n future. Wat a beautiful saviour He is! He came also 2 destroy all d evil lies n works to lead us to d truth of life. Jesus is d oni one who die 4 us n raise fr dead aft 3 days.He gives light to our life w new hopes to bring d real purpose n meaning to our life, n lead us 2 d truth as only truth can set us free!
Pls listen clearly here bro Zen, if u r seriously concern abt d doubts in ur life, i tell truth tt only Jesus has all d answers for u pertaining ur life as He is the only WAY, TRUTH n LIFE, noone can come to Father except through Him. John 14:6
Dun wait anymore bro Zen, instead of jst travelling u may same time spend d precious time to get to kno Him to bring back d life tt u want! Praise God, my son jst got baptized! I always thanks God for this precious gift 2 me as a mum! As for myself, i stopped working n spent almost a year to get 2 kno Him w my heart n get closer 2 His heart. Wat a joy 2 discover tt d closer tt u get 2 Him is in fact d closer 2 kno ur heart 2 bring out ur Higher Self. I assured tt u wl never regret to embark on tis journey!
Good Luck n God Bless
