    Cuando Me Enamoro

    I love reading but when it comes to the Bible, it’s difficult for me to keep a routine reading the word of God daily. Oh, let me correct the sentence. It’s difficult for me to keep a routine reading the Bible from the beginning ’till the end. Honestly, I get lazy after a few days esp when I can’t relate the message to the modern world problem. Therefore, I feel so grateful to Nicky and Pippa Gumbel who created the Bible in One Year app! Now, I’m not a very religious person but I do believe in Him, pray and go to the church. Peace be with me when I…

    These are the Two Most Important Lessons Traveling Teaches Me

    Aloha, friends~ I’m pretty sure you’ve read at least one article that discusses ‘X (insert number) lessons traveling has taught me’. I have to agree on what most travel writers write. If there’s anything different, you may have read it from my blog posts. While brainstorming over steamed kampong chicken on what to share with you this week, I realised there are two most important lessons traveling teaches me. They are: the Joy Of Missing Out (JOMO) and the Art of Not Giving a F*ck. Traveling Helps Me Embrace JOMO (the Joy Of Missing Out) Move away, FOMO (the Fear Of Missing Out)! It’s time for all of us to…

    Wanderlust: Little Things that Spark Joy

    Oh, the joy of being a wanderlust! Being grateful with life, even countries we haven’t been to The fireworks of our soul, the twinkles of our eyes Sparking joy in little things we do Home-cooked lunches for winter gear and flight tickets Hygge at home with books and teas over cafes Sweating out at the gym instead of clubs Oh, the joy of being a wanderlust! A passion, a teacher, one of the purposes in life Sparking joy in everything we work for Dreams we know we’ll achieve, the dates we promised ourselves A love for oneself, a world without broken promises A love for others, a world without strangers…

    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…

    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…

    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. In short, they starve themselves in order to travel. 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…

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

    Ok, so this blog post may not be directly discussing money or travel. I’m just thinking that soul therapy through patterns 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 wonders. Aside from 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…
