Hello! I am officially Natcha Yongphiphatwong, but I go unofficially as Pun Pun (my Thai nickname, which means to share). Born and raised amidst the tropical heat of Bangkok, finding the weather too cold has become my constant physical reaction in most parts of the world. I like to travel, eat and sleep, although I am very much a morning person. My spirit animal is a duck because I am interested in so many different things and can do a little bit of everything, just like a duck! I love listening to people's stories and learning about things from different perspectives, so feel free to strike up a conversation with me on just about anything. Alongside reading and watching interviews of all sorts, I sing and sometimes translate songs into Thai.
