Hi! I am Intan,
Welcome to my creative space
I am a Freelance Writer and Travel Blogger – and a former flight attendant
Throughout the different phases of my life (and six years as a cabin crew), the one thing that had remained constant is my love for writing. I started Syfnz Says in 2021 as I have so many travel stories and experiences to share. Plus, I didn’t want the beautiful photos I’ve taken with my iPhone to be sitting around collecting pixel dust. In my free time, you can find me trying out new recipes in the kitchen, hanging out with my husband, playing Animal Crossing and The Sims, and drawing flat vector illustrations.
Singaporean girl based in Leipzig
Born and bred Singaporean, I lived in Doha, Qatar for 4 years for work, and now have moved to Leipzig, Germany with my husband. Sunny Singapura will always be home.
Why Syfnz Says?
My previous blogs began more like a journal, recording things I did with family and friends daily, without much focus in mind except to showcase the beautiful pictures I took. Then it evolved into an Instagram feed where I share my pictures with family and friends. Needing a distraction from job hunting, I have decided to turn my website into a place where not only do I get to share my stories, it doubles up as a resource for my readers as well.
With every post, I learn and improve. Hope that one day I can look back and say, “Hey, I have finally documented all my travel stories!” Don’t think that’s possible though.
What can you expect from Syfnz Says?
Syfnz Says focuses on two main topics: Travel and Lifestyle.
The stories are catered to women who:
1. Are avid travellers
2. Are researching for their next getaway
3. Are solo travellers, couple travellers, group travellers
4. Would like to solo travel one day but don’t know where to start
5. Are living abroad, far away from family and friends back home, just like me
Whether you fit in one category or all or even none,
welcome to Syfnz Says!

Hidden Gems – Written for travellers who are looking for alternative things to do in their favourite city. We’re talking about unique experiences, things that you won’t expect to do in a particular city and beyond.
- Hidden Gem: Unique Onsen Experience in Bangkok
- Procida travel guide: A gorgeous hidden gem in Southern Italy
24 hours in… – One-day travel guides, sights to see and food to eat for those who only have limited time in the different cities. I used my experience as a flight attendant on layovers as a guide for things to do. We used to mostly spend 24 hours at a destination.
Living in Germany – This series is rather self-explanatory. Expat women will include stories of living abroad, as well as resources for readers who are moving to Germany for the first time. I decided against the initial name “Expat Wives” because I want my stories to be relatable to all women who are living abroad regardless of status.
Sustainable Travel – What began as research for school papers turned into a way of life that I’m making conscious efforts to move towards. This series will include my personal journey to sustainable living through travel, and also in my daily life.
