Hi! I’m Melissa Newton but I’ve been known as melmonica ever since I was 13. It’s a combination of my nick, Mel & my friends said my character is similar to Monica from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. So, there you have it, melmonica:)

I studied International Marketing in University Malaysia Sabah, Labuan and worked in several marketing and advertising agencies from 2010 – 2012.

In July 2012, I traveled to New Zealand on a working holiday visa and it was the best decision i’ve ever made for myself. I had the opportunity to fulfill my lifelong dream of traveling alone, skydiving and collected enough memories that I will be proud to share with my future kids one day 🙂

I went back to Malaysia for a little bit but relocated back to New Zealand (precisely, Invercargill) to be with my love. Pretty bold move for a boy, no? Anyway, feel free to browse through my blog for updates!


Cheers to a fantastic 2015!
