Hi! I’m Alilie “Lilly”, a mother, wife, Science teacher, traveler, blogger, and a homemaker. I’m a petite young woman of many interests. Aside from traveling, I love cooking, baking, reading, photography, walking, dancing, and exploring new things. My favorite place is anywhere by the ocean and relaxing in the sun is heaven on earth. I developed a deep appreciation for nature, and an active lifestyle as I grew up in a gorgeous, picturesque town in the Philippines. Whatever role I find myself in, I am constantly evolving creatively.
My family and I have always led an adventurous life. I’ve traveled to a few countries with my loves and I hope to add a lot more to that list. I’ve been living in Cambodia since 2009, and I love living here because life is easy, people are friendly, and it’s filled with great opportunities.
My earliest memories of traveling and being in a bus was with my grandma when I was 5 years old and it has stuck with me since. I was 8 when I first joined the Girl Scout’s camping with my friends; at that time, I could only remember feeling elated for being independent so young, and for having some adventure. 🙂
I started Little Lilly Meets the World in 2013 to chronicle my travels with my family. While most of my posts are about the places we have been to, I also write about the dishes I love to cook. The first post was about my first trip in Paris as to me it was a childhood dream came true. After a few months, I realized that I had readers, who started commenting on my posts and sending me emails about how my posts inspired them to travel more.
Over time, I became more fascinated with cultures, travel, arts, nature, food, and cooking. And, my passion for cooking, baking, and traveling to new places has only grown stronger through the years. The world is so big and so beautiful, and I have only seen, and experienced a tiny part of it. To me, meeting the world does not only mean traveling but also learning and discovering other cultures and cuisines.
Yes, I finally got hooked into blogging not only because I wanted to make a story of my life but also to see how much I’ve changed and how much I’ve grown as I believe that every step is a memory.
To all of you, Welcome to Little Lilly Meets the World!
