    Confessions of a Crossdresser

    Buon giorno! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I went to Bali for four days and returned to KL with a flowery mood. It was a great, lovely short trip with my boyfriend. As you can see from the cover photo, we have a huge age gap. A friend asks me, “Are you for real?” haha… But hey! Age is just a number. We don’t get to choose who the heart wants. It just happens… You can deny or mask the truth, but you can’t lie to yourself. And then, out of a sudden, this friend of mine makes a shocking confession. “Clara… I’m a crossdresser.” The Heartbreaking, Beautiful…

    Love Travelling to Jogjakarta? You May Want to Send Your Kids to Study There, Here’s Why

    Yes, I skipped a blog post last week. Chinese New Year season made me embrace the art of doing nothing – except nibbling some cookies, hehe! This week my mind takes me back to good ol’ school days in Jogjakarta. I spent two years there separated from my family and boy, I thanked my parents for it! Jogjakarta, Yogyakarta or Jogja is a small city in Indonesia located on the island of Java. If you’ve travelled there, you will know the city for its cultural heritage, Borobudur Temple, Mount Merapi and Malioboro Street. But the locals know the city better as Kota Pelajar aka the City of Students. Children from…

    It’s December Again and It’s Time to Listen to Your Inner Self

    Hola, amigos! I’m so happy to know that many enjoy reading my previous blog post about Chefchaouen, Morocco. It is my pleasure to share what I have seen and experienced. I will share with you another part of Morocco in the next blog post. This time, I feel like sharing a personal view about life. If you have any opinion, please do not hesitate to comment. I’d like to hear and learn from you 🙂 Embrace the Silence and Listen to Your Inner Self I don’t know why I’m here and what I’m doing with my life. I guess it always occurs to me when December arrives. This sentimental feeling…

    The Investment That You May Overlooked

    What if I tell you that you can print money, legally? Your body is the machine, and you’re trading your energy, time and health for every batch of dollar, euro or ringgit that you print. You’ll be fully investing yourself in the process. Will you sacrifice most of your energy, time and health to do it? Some people may do so because they’re worried that one day, the opportunity is gone. Although most of the time, it’s just people being kiasu… I once had the opportunity to achieve an unlimited bonus from a company that I worked for. Rooted in my passion for travel, I sacrificed a lot of things…

    How Sharing While Travelling Makes You Happier

    I’ve lost count of how many times the church sermons inspired me to write a new blog post. Today, they talked about being grateful and the joy of sharing – which I can truly relate as an avid traveller. By the way, my dad thinks it’s weird that I go to two churches every Sunday (Catholic mass in the morning then Anglican mass in the afternoon). I’m not a super religious person but it sparks joy because each has a different ritual style. You get to sing different kind of songs as well! Ok, back to the topic. When I was a kid and lived in Indonesia, my family had…

    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…

    A Wanderlust’s Journey to The Road Less Traveled

    What I’m going to share with you isn’t about discovering a secret travel escape or an inspirational book by M. Scott Peck. It’s how to overcome your wanderlust, live a life with fewer trips in a year – like what I’m trying to do. I always see wanderlusts as happiest people. Oh, the twinkle in their eyes! You can feel the burning passion in them when they share their travel stories. That cheerful, spontaneous spirit and dreamy eyes… But what happens if you take the passion away from them? Like what I’m trying to do now, toning down the wanderlust within. Toning Down the Wanderlust Within Why? Because as a…
