    Investing for a Bucket List, Tony Robbins’ Way

    Thank God my lower back pain is getting much better today! I’ve been ‘itching’ to write about investing for a bucket list that I learned from Tony Robbins’ book “Money: Master the Game”. In the previous blog post, I shared about Tony Robbin’s advise on building wealth by investing in All Season portfolios. This portfolio will protect you from any financial downturn so you’ll never lose money. Also, how you can use the service of robo advisors to create All Season portfolios and let them do the rebalancing – automatically, within a click. But, what makes life more interesting is when we do things that we’re passionate about. It’s not…

    Tony Robbins’ Investing Rules of Thumb – Simplified

    Every Thursday in the office, I and a group of friends would gather during lunch hour to discuss a random topic. On one occasion, we were discussing life plan and I shared that I wanted to plan for my retirement because I read Tony Robbins’ investment book. “Clara, why do you have to plan for your retirement? You can just get married to someone who can help you. Look at our friend, she’s getting married and will be moving overseas!” said one of my friends. The thing is, everyone has a different fate. Therefore, whether you’re a man or a woman, NEVER hope that one day someone will come to…

    Summer in Sorrento

    As someone who dreams of traveling to as many countries as possible yet has a limited budget, usually, I only visit a country once. However, there’s a country that I won’t mind to re-visit again and again. And that country is… Italy! xxx During the summer holiday in June 2017, I went for a 12-day Italy trip and dropped by at Sorrento for a few days. It was a very memorable trip – excellent food, classy architecture, lively people, beautiful scenery… Summer in Italy could be really hot but trust me, once you visit their gorgeous beaches and coastal towns, it’s totally worth it to travel to Italy in summer!…

    Beach, Babe & BaraCoco Bungalows

    Following the previous post about digital detox trip, this week I want to recommend a beautiful beach bungalow in Tanjung Bira, South Sulawesi, Indonesia: BaraCoco Bungalows. That’s right! South Sulawesi is more than just witnessing the ‘walking dead’ ceremony, hanging coffin and historical burial sites in Toraja. If you plan to go to Toraja (August is the best month), why not end your trip with a nice stay at a beautiful beach bungalow? BaraCoco Bungalows is located right at Tanjung Bira (Bira Beach), giving you direct access to the beach whenever you want. Each bungalow has its own balcony, a queen-sized bed and a private bathroom, ensuring you have a…

    Digital Detox Trip: City Edition

    I wrote about Digital Detox Trip: Nature Edition before, now let’s talk about how we can truly act on it when travelling in the city! How attached are you with your smartphone when you’re travelling? Are you always on your phone, busy updating your social media or chatting with your friends and family? If yes, don’t you feel like you’re missing the point of travelling because you’re not present while travelling? I get it. WiFi is very important because you can easily obtain direction, suggestion, etc within a click. For me, I prefer to keep my phone in the bag unless I find a free WiFi during my meal/tea time…

    Eat Fresh, Eat Well: Ryoshi Izakaya Signature

    This isn’t a paid post for Ryoshi Izakaya Signature. Rule of thumb when it comes to socializing is to appreciate the ones who are kind to you. Perhaps someone asks you out for a date, friends send you home although their house isn’t in the same direction with yours, or you’re invited for dinner. The appreciation doesn’t have to be ‘tit-for-tat’. It’s as simple as bringing them their favorite snack from your home country when you balik kampong and paying for the parking ticket. Or, you can also write a blog post about it, as I do 🙂 Last weekend, I was invited by a friend to his newly-opened Japanese…

    You are a Gift – What I Learnt from the Alpha Weekend

    Let’s talk about Gift and Alpha Weekend. What kind of people that you consider are gifted? Sure, in general, people who are gifted are the ones with very high IQ, capable of talking in multiple languages, great singers, great leaders, great dancers, etc, etc. In short, they’re super talented and successful. Until I learned another meaning of Gift during my Alpha weekend in Melaka. Alpha is a short, interactive session where people can explore the basic of Christian faith. It’s not only open to Christians but to everyone. You can be a non-Christian or even a free-thinker to join the session. Ask anything you want and express your opinion freely…

    La Vie en Rose

    I know it’s two days late, but if you’re a mother or expecting and reading this blog post… Happy Mother’s Day! This morning, the church gave away flowers to the women and I got a petite, pink flower that smelled so sweet. La vie en rose! Suddenly, I got an idea to share with all of you beautiful places to see flowers. You don’t have to go to Europe, really! Plus, your photo will be Instagram worthy 😉 Before you continue reading, you can click the ‘play’ button to enjoy my current favourite song, “La Vie en Rose”.
