About Us

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by Singapore Trip Guide. We are Shannon and Jay! We started this blog while living abroad to share all the amazing experiences we have seen in Asia, particularly Singapore.


I am an engineer by trade and an aspiring competitive eater. After being in the tech industry for the past 8 years, I am ditching a traditional tech job as a product manager to venture out and build something I am truly passionate about. When I am not working on my projects, I like to be total home body. One of my favorite activities is watching Youtube while lying down with the laptop screen propped against my chest. When I am not horizontally positioned in my bed, I like to squat, bench, and deadlift. Luckily, one of those exercises allows me to lie down.


Among other interests, I am a powerlifter, marketer, and a student of life. Whether you’re interested in connecting with other women who may have experienced the same struggles as you have in the gym or curious about my take on the modern day young professional life, I hope you find something useful! I am not the strongest lady in the weight area nor am I striving to be. Sports are all about competition but I believe weightlifting is about competing with yourself. It’s great that everyone has goals but this is not the place to one up each other. We’re all about positive feedback, encouragement, and enjoying the path to be the best you! If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, here are a few of my favorite posts to start off with 🙂
