About the SEÑORITA

Hey there, fellow adventurers! I’m Polly Amora, the señorita behind Golden Island Señorita. A go-getter by day, and a wanderlust-fueled explorer by heart. As a dedicated general manager in the vibrant whirlwind of wholesale trade right here in Metro Manila, I can honestly say that I’m living my dream. But you know what else sets my soul on fire? Traveling the globe and immersing myself in new cultures, flavors, and experiences. I have no intention of hitting pause on my career to satisfy my wanderlust cravings. Why choose between two loves when you can have the best of both worlds?

When I’m not diving into the world of wholesale deals and negotiations, you’ll find me lost in the joys of writing and organizing. It’s like my creative fuel! That’s why I decided to bring this blog to life – Golden Island Señorita. Here, I spill all my travel secrets, from crafting epic itineraries to dishing out savvy budget tips. And hey, organizing isn’t just a hobby for me; it’s a way of life!

Oh, and when I’m not lost in the world of travel, you can catch me diving deep into the ocean as a freediving enthusiast, teaching kids how to play the drums, or satisfying my inner neat freak with some serious organizing skills. Plus, let’s not forget about my three adorable fur babies and my swoon-worthy French boyfriend – they add an extra sprinkle of joy to my already exciting life.



Now, let’s talk about the heartbeat of Golden Island Señorita. This isn’t your average travel blog; it’s a vibrant blend of travel and lifestyle musings crafted with love and passion. Here’s what you can expect from me:

  1. I’m here to debunk the myth that you have to bid farewell to your career to explore the world. With a sprinkle of determination and a dash of creativity, you can juggle both – and I’m living proof of that!
  2. When it comes to unraveling the beauty of the Philippines (and beyond), I’ve got your back with insider travel plans, detailed itineraries, and budget-friendly tips to help you make the most of your journey.
  3. I’m on a mission to tantalize your taste buds with honest reviews and mouthwatering recommendations from my culinary escapades.
  4. And most importantly, I’m here to foster a community where fellow adventurers can connect, share stories, and inspire each other to chase their wanderlust dreams.

So, if you’re ready to embrace a life where work and wanderlust intertwine seamlessly, hop on board with Golden Island Señorita. Let’s show the world that you don’t have to choose – you can have it all!

Is blogging your main source of income? How do I start a blog that makes money?
I wish! But, no, I run a business and have a couple side hustles (offline).


  1. I enjoy reading your blog and I am here more frequently than I comment. I shared your vacation posts too, thank you for sharing terrific information. I hope to see more good things from you.

    1. Hi Tepid, thank you very much for reading and sharing my posts! I appreciate it alot! <3

  2. I’ve just finished reading your whale shark watching post. I like the honesty that you put in it. My husband and I are planning to visit Oslob but after reading your post I don’t think I’ll ever have the heart to do so. I’ve read a few of your articles as well and all I can say is that you’re a breath of fresh air. People that only show the good stuff and want to create an image and seem like everything is always perfect. Keep it up!

    1. Hi Cynthia! I find that my opinions can be off putting but I’d rather be straightforward than give them high hopes. People search the interwebs to get information and at least get an idea of what it’s like before they travel. For this blog, I offer nothing but honest opinions whether it’s good or bad – I’ll tell it as it is. Thank you very much for dropping by and reading my post! <3

  3. I want to travel, but then I think about how racism and discrimination still exists, and it’s often hard for me to feel safe. I’m a total wimp, and my anxiety makes me terrified to even leave the house some days. Some days, it’s a fight just to get to the library, or to the grocery. I’m afraid I’ll never go the places I want to go and I don’t want to let it stop me from living my life. I’m Promise from Nigeria.

    1. Hi Promise! I admire you for not wanting it to stop you. Anxiety is something that everyone experiences. Some people learn to control it, while others learn to live with less of it. But it is also something that you can overcome. It will take time, and it may take the support of family and friends. During my travels, I had no problems related to racism and everything went smoothly. For example, Italy and Spain, these countries are known for having racism issues. I met so many kind people from those countries, and that’s what I remember above all. I am not saying that racism and discrimination doesn’t exist but I think it would be unfair to judge a country based on one rotten tomato or what you see/hear without actually visiting the place. If you feel that you aren’t ready to travel, that’s totally fine. You don’t need to rush.

  4. Good morning, Polly! I’m Jae Hwa from Sulwhasoo. A holistic beauty brand designed to spread Asian Beauty worldwide, featuring its unique ingredients and recipes. We invite you to try our product and offer studio samples at a 20% discount. I’m eager to receive your feedback.

    1. Hi Jae Hwa! Thank you for the offer. <3

  5. I’m at awe at how dedicated you are with your website. I couldn’t imagine traveling, running a business and keeping your website updated all at the same time. Do you at least get something from this? I hope everything is going great for you!

    1. Hi Cass! I found a way to balance everything – thank goodness! 😀 Do I get something from this? I do. Happiness. Hahaha! I earn from this but I’ll be allotting it to keeping this blog up and running. Thank you very much! <3
