Say Cheese, Tal is a website that is mostly about my travel experiences all across the globe and my appreciation for the beauty that New Zealand has to offer, since I am primarily based here. I write with an intention to ignite the adventurous side in anyone who wants to see the world and if you’re lucky, there’d be an odd mention of my personal lamentations that are significant enough to be archived here.
The name Cheesetal was coined more than ten years ago out of mere jest, and eventually became a catchy moniker for most of my online platforms that I have today. I decided to redefine my way of writing with this space after many years of writing here, a convenient platform where a younger (read: hormonal and angsty) version of myself latched on to express in words what I was incapable of speaking.
In reality, people call me Crystal.
I am typically that average girl you’d notice walking across the street, except that I’m quite capable of tripping over a loose pebble, laugh at my own clumsiness and then act as though that incident was totally meant to happen.
In one way or another, I hope this space relates to you and leaves enough of an impression to make you come back.
