Getting to know about us

  Meet the authors of elvielins.com…

and be inspired by us. Our aim is to encourage everyone, to look positive in life. As life can be unmotivated, ridiculous in some ways.

If we do not have  the right people who can uplift us, we will be drawn like them.

                                        Meet JJ Sum


I’m working as a home-based online English tutor for three years now.
A full-time mother of three, so managing time well is my strength, at least.

Fond of watching American or UK TV-series and thriller movies as well. I also like the music of Lady Gaga, Adele, Sia, Ed Sheeran, and many more. I started blogging two years ago and I write anything I can think of at the moment.

 A retired portrait photographer in business point of view. Run my photography studio successfully in a beautiful country of Singapore.

In May 2016, I decided to close my very well stublished photography studio – www.ministerofpictures.sg ( no longer around).

Because of the business, I created life to many of my family and relatives in Singapore and Philippines.

It was an amazing 11 years journey of my life, to capture the emotions, the glamour look of people. The rich and famous, they are all the same to me. I wrote an ebook about HOW TO CREATE A SUCCESSFUL PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS FOR BIGENNERS

and here some sample photos of what I have done…

This video was created by Don Canela who is a professional video grapher and appointed videographer to many jobs in Singapore.

In this video, you will see the Ambassador of Philippines in 2008.

As a traveller.

I think, I have cross the continents of the world. Now that I am retired from my business, I find something to do and that is writing a blog related to travel and photography.
Born in the Philippines and a resident of Singapore and also have house in Johor Malaysia as well as few condo units and lands in the Philippines. An investment I created during my working golden years.

In my story, having that hard time in the past… I like to encourage everyone to do what you like best and do it well. Never let others stop you.

Do not look back and just keep doing it. Because at the end of the day.. it will be you and the people around you can benefit your success.

Be yourself! Dream Big because its free!
