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

    Let’s talk about Gift. 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 learnt 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 – there’s no…

    Is Your Travel Worth Bigger than Your Net Worth?

    I always like reading, but recently I have a new hobby whenever I’m in the bookstore. Previously, I only roaming around the magazine area. Now, I’m spending more time in the “self-help” area, especially financial books. One of the brilliant books that I found is “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker. The book reveals the differences in how the middle income and millionaire think. As an employee who comes from a humble family, a section struck me: Rich people focus on their net worth. Poor people focus on their working income. “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” – T. Harv Eker To sum it up, how much you…

    Your Food Survival Guide When Traveling in Cuba

    Travelers, has this ever cross your mind? As long as I can travel to my dream destination, I don’t care if I like the food. Before I went to Havana Cuba, I did some research and uncle Google said the food in Cuba was a challenge to most travelers. As someone who’s not a picky eater, I was very confident that I could survive that 15-day Cuba trip. Generally, the food in Cuba tastes bland. If you’re lucky, you’ll end up in a cafe or restaurant with food that tastes as good as it looks. On my 5th day, I started to hope that I would be luckier. On the…

    To All Travelers Who Starve Themselves, This is for You

    As much as I wanted to write about Cuban food, somehow the idea of sharing my opinion about the relationship between some travelers and food appeared. There’s some news about travelers who set an extremely low budget for food so they can travel. One girl walks to the office and eats only vegetable. If she feels like spending more, she’ll have canned fish. Her goal? To have luxury holidays! Of course, not all travelers go to that extreme. As someone who has done it, I, too, chose to be hungry so I could save more money to fund my travel. For examples, I skipped dinner for almost two years and…

    I Flew Almost 24h to Cuba Only to Find It’s Quite Similar to Asia

    When it comes to Latin American countries, what pops on your mind? Exotic culture, sensual music, sexy people… “Despacito” and “Havana”, perhaps? Been to Cuba in April 2018, I agree with that. However, there are things that many people, especially Asian, will find it shocking when they travel to Cuba. That’s mainly because we don’t realise that Latin American countries are underdeveloped. After sitting on the plane for almost 24 hours and feeling my a$$ flatten like chapati, quite a number of things made my jaws dropped during my 15-day tour. I was like, ‘I traveled from far far away to find this??’. Although surprising, I enjoyed the trip! It’s…

    9 Fun Facts About Sri Lanka That You Should Know

    In the previous post about me feeling regret visiting Sri Lanka, I haven’t shared with you some fun facts about the country. If you have no idea about Sri Lanka, here are 9 fun facts that you should know: Bring USD If you can’t find money changers that sell Sri Lankan Rupee in your country, get USD.

    I Find My Soul Therapy Through Patterns. What’s Yours?

    Ok, so this blog post may not be directly discussing about money or travel. However, it may help you save some bucks in case you think that a shopping spree or splurging will give you emotional and spiritual healing. There will be times when you feel anxious, moody, can’t sleep or feel lost. Maybe you’re still healing from past experience, trying to move on, etc… If you’re a religious person, praying will do a lot of wonder. Aside of praying, other activities like dancing, playing a musical instrument or colouring also help. One of the things that put my soul in peace is when I see colourful patterns. I always…
