Armela Patalud is currently a digital marketing manager by profession. For the past 10 years, she has been providing marketing content and strategies for corporate clients from different types of industries both here and abroad. Several years ago, she was part of the team that spearheaded the launch of one of the biggest e-commerce websites in the Philippines and an award-winning local online magazine.
After years of taking the back seat for other websites, Armela has dared to shepherd her own travel and lifestyle online magazine called www.aroundthemetro.ph which suitably speaks about her passion for photography, travelling and discovering places around the Philippines. She is backed with a team composed of ardent backpack travelers and photographers who take the extra mile to discover anything in the name of passion.
www.aroundthemetro.ph aims to encourage and promote tourism to locals and tourists by showcasing the Philippine’s finest destinations through their travels and become the premiere venue for essential information about food, hotels, top destinations, and events.
Armela is also a self-taught photographer who loves to capture moments to tell stories about people and places through her photos. Fueled by two of her biggest passions, she invites you to join her and her team on their journey as they unravel uncharted destinations, one tour at a time.
