Dr Joe Yip
Cosy, captivated and convenient, so-called “triple C” concept is certainly not an overstatement of Dunedin. Ever since I moved to Dunedin a decade ago from the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, I have found my comfort. While the day never fails to offer me vibrant, friendly and diverse experiences, the night sways me into a safe, comfortable and calm feeling. When I am seeking a weekend experience with Mother Nature, it is only a short drive away. It is undoubtedly an impeccable place to live, in a corner of the world where one can truly enjoy the balance between work and life.
I spent my summer doing something that I'm passionate about!
