Hello, 你好

Hello, welcome to the adventures of luna finula, a blog about travelling, whimsical explorations, fateful encounters and a sprinkling of inspiration and appreciation for the little things in life.


Hello, my name is Siobhan (Pippi) Lumsden, or as I am more commonly known east-side- 月雪芳. I’m currently living in the Chinese city of Shenzhen, doing voices for cartoons at Fantawild Animation and enjoying re-exploring this land. You see, 6 years ago I decided it was time to venture to far-away lands, so I packed up my pink rucksack and well, since then I haven’t looked back.

In 2007 I touched down in South Africa as a voluntary drama teacher and it was LOVE. I don’t know where that amazing country had been hiding all my days, but I wasn’t prepared to let it go, which is why in 2008 I found myself rocking up in a little town called Grahamstown to attend Rhodes University. That place is the best! From there I landed a Confucius Institute scholarship and flew off to China as an exchange student. I didn’t realise that that crazy, Chinese land was creeping into my heart, but well, it did. Thus, after a short but sweet stint of living and teaching English in Cape Town, I jetted back to China to teach Chinese kids drama and baby ballet.

Then one day, whilst casually searching for jobs, I stumbled upon a gem. That gem allowed me to do voices for cartoons for more than a year (and now I’m back for more!). During those days I applied for a travel writing competition in Taiwan. I won, and the rest is history. Taiwan stole my heart, and she hasn’t given it back yet. I spent the past year studying Chinese, interning at Lomography Taipei, travelling all around that lovely island and having some of the best days of my life.

I decided to move back to Asia after a beautiful summer at home in Scotland. I interned at Lomography Asia in the glittering city of Hong Kong for 3 months, before deciding to return to the world of cartoons.  I would like to continue my explorations, publish a children’s story or two one day, and keep enjoying every moment on this lovely earth.

Thank you for stopping by to join my adventure.

  1. Kudos on getting that travel writing scholarship!

    Just wanted to let you know that I have decided to use an excerpt from your latest blog entry for one of my English lessons. Keep up the good work!

  2. Hello 月雪芳,

    Found your blog as I was looking for info about trips to Kaiping. Just read your cool little life adventure thus far. I spent 3 years in Taiwan, and can appreciate how it steals your heart. I’m currently in Guangdong. I quite enjoyed my winter in Scotland several years back. Thanks for sharing about your adventures in Kaiping. Feel free to message to exchange travel adventures and ideas sometimes.
