About Valene | whyhelloyou.com

I live to travel,  eat, and  entertain.

Why, Hello You!


I’m Valene [val-een]. Dubai-based, Singapore-raised…and more recently, Beirut-crazed (thanks to R, the husband). A travel-obsessed, prolific home cook, party thrower, island lover and all-round beach baby.


WhyHelloYou.com is a site dedicated to stories of travel, food, and lifestyle. It’s a glimpse into my world across the beautiful cities I now call home – Dubai, Singapore, Beirut…and everything in between.


Whether you’re here to explore my travel recommendations, the latest concoctions in my kitchen, or my hottest new lifestyle finds – I hope you enjoy your stay!


Why? Because all good things are best shared.


Welcome to my world!
