Behind the blog


Clumsy Clariss was born in a tropical paradise in the southeast asia called the Philippines. She's a wanderess with an unquenchable thirst for life. She lived quarter of her life in this paradise, then moved to Malaysia where she learned many things about the world more than she could have ever thought.

Later again, she found herself living in a new country. 
This time in pursuit of love. To the land of the trolls and vikings, Norway, while also finishing her masters, and trying to find jobs in between.

As much as Clariss loves travel, exploration, and all sort of pleasurable hobbies,  she deeply agrees to Viktor Frankl's Man's search for meaning that Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure, as Freud believed, or a quest for power, as Alfred Adler taught, but a quest for meaning

The greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her own life. And she's still on the way to finding hers, while trying to keep a record, of whatever she finds along the way, in this blog. 

Fun facts

She's a mermaid, according to her. 
One of her accomplishments was joining an intense training on water safety and rescue technique under Philippine Coast Guard Special Operations Group, where she ranked 2nd after an intense mile swim. This was mainly because of her mom's support who is also adventurous as her.

For fun, she studied Basic and Advance Make Up Course.
She also tried modelling and acting for short films in support of her two strong allies: the controversial and the famous, Japhetonthego and Martin aka "Beneboy". 

She's a self proclaimed Jane of all trades. She has boundless interest in various things. From architecture, singing, acting, modelling, swimming, painting, photography, designing, dancing, yoga, name it. 

She enjoys travelling and volunteering as well. Some of the countries she's visited were MalaysiaSingapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Hongkong, Macau, UAENorwaySweden, Denmark and of course, Philippines. 

Oh and she likes procrastinating on Social media too. Say hi and connect with her on FacebookTwitterInstagram or Youtube.
