    Vitamin Sea in Porto & How Financial Goals Saved Me

    I didn’t expect that many people enjoy reading my previous post. One friend even messaged me saying that it’s so refreshing. So I guess in unprecedented times (or stressful, to some) like this, you’d like to see a similar post. This week, let me take you to Porto, an enchanting coastal city in northwest Portugal and share how my financial goals saved me. P.S.: the girl on the cover photo is not me, but I like how her pink hair is contrasting to the blue sea hehe… Porto: Sea, Wine Tasting and Sardines I had only two days in Portugal – one in Lisbon, one in Porto. Of course, one…

    How to Keep Motivated Until the End of the Year

    I can’t wait for the end of the year. How many of you wishing for the same? I can’t wait to welcome the Ox Year in 2021, with a hope of better (hardworking) days ahead. I’m not a very superstitious person, but this year 2020 in Chinese 2+0+2+0 = 4 = death, bad luck. Surely, there are things that I feel grateful for. But we still have four and a half months until the end of the year. What could keep us motivated and carry on? I found mine, and I’m gonna share them with you in this blog post. It may or may not work for you, but hey!…

    God, Why Me? Have a Break at Kenny Hills Bakers Ampang

    If you’re reading this, I hope you’re well. I didn’t update the blog last week because I had nothing in mind that I felt was worth it to share. But I do now, especially after a well-deserved break at Kenny Hills Bakers 🙂 No, this isn’t a food review post. The previous blog, which I shared my vulnerabilities, was surprisingly received a well-response. I thought nobody would care. But turned out, some of them were feeling the same! God, Why Me? ‘…in all things God works for the good of those who love him…’ Romans 8:28 Last week, a lot of things happened to me at the same time. I…

    Meditation, Travel Movies and How RMCO Changed Me

    This week’s blog post will be about my personal experience, especially how RMCO (Recovery Movement Control Order) changed me. Staying at home most of the time for a few months have changed me. I didn’t know that my new hobbies – meditation and travel movie marathon could open up a new perspectives. New RMCO Hobby #1 – Meditation and Face Mask I always use Innisfree Super Volcanic Peel Off Mask 2X twice a week to tighten my pores and get a glowing complexion. Then, one day, I felt super emo so I decided to combine it with meditation. They got along really well! As I couldn’t stand sitting for a…

    The Miracle Before Easter (and lessons from COVID-19)

    It’s been quite some time I wanted to share this with you, friends. But I waited until all are set and done. This week, I will share about the miracle and life lessons that I received during COVID-19. Do you believe in miracle? Regardless what you believe in, I feel what I experienced was more than a coincidence. It’s one of many miracles that I received throughout my life. But this time, it felt special because it happened during the pandemic. It’s totally unexpected. The Unexpected Encounter A few months ago, I started looking for a new job because I sensed it’s time to have a backup plan. The signs…

    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…
