Hi! :) I'm Christine Fernandez, a Filipina hiker based in Metro Manila. :) I fell in love with mountains in 2000, when I joined my school's outdoor club. I now work full-time as a configuration manager for an IT company. I'm not into the "quit your job to travel the world" and have nothing against those who chose that kind of life (I have dear friends who are successful with it) - but, I actually enjoy juggling my time between work and pursuing all the other things I love like hiking, traveling and swimming (I blame my monstrous appetite to this sport! :).
Below's a list of online articles, collaborations with brands, hotels and event coverage I've done. Click on the links to get to the actual post.
