    Sorry Santa, I Ate Your Reindeer at Lappi Restaurant, Finland Before Christmas

    Approaching the end of the year, the weather in Malaysia is hot and cold. Well, often cold as I’m sitting in the office with AC most of the time! As I walked passed by in Pasar Seni Kuala Lumpur a few days ago, I could see Christmas decorations in some of the shops. Oh, it’s almost that time of the year again! The cold weather and festive season remind me of my one-day experience in Helsinki, Finland, back in 2017. It was my first time in Finland and first-and-last experience trying reindeer meat at the famous Lappi Restaurant. Sorry Santa, I ate your reindeer at Lappi, Finland, before Christmas and…

    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…

    Apparently, Your Brain Decides If Your Travel Plan Will Come True

    Some people often ask how I can persevere with my lifestyle for the sake of travelling. They may not realise that once the brain has decided, any travel plan will come true. Once the brain has decided, any travel plan will come trueBUT. You must make that travel plan A MUST In 2016, I ate the same food for lunch and skipped dinner for almost a year. Not something I encourage you to follow, though. In 2017, I wrote as many articles as I could in order to get a big bonus every month. Also, there were pros and cons to this. In 2018, I had the most short-planned trips…

    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…

    How Baby Rooms Help You Save Money on Mineral Water (and Heal the World)

    I was thinking to share my travel story of Porto, a beautiful city in Portugal. Then, I read articles about Greta Thunberg and it reminded me of how I usually save money on mineral water thanks to the existence of baby rooms. Don’t worry, I won’t repeat what you’ve probably read or watch online. Some of you may feel confused about who to trust amid rumors about her. However. Either it’s an act or real, it doesn’t matter because the outcome is to heal the world and make it a better place. And she’s succeeded in creating great influence. So, why the fuss? Now, there’s a habit of mine that…

    The Crab Migration in Trinidad, Cuba

    Being a wanderlust is a blessing, but not when you really need to travel yet have no resources. After what happened last week, I just want to travel to somewhere far, far away… Alas, I’m a wanderlust with minimal resources. I can’t because I had paid the deposit for my 2020 Europe trip. As an Indonesian passport-holder, I need to show the embassy that I have enough resources so they’ll grant me the Schengen visa. Therefore, I can’t simply go for a last-minute trip and jeopardizing what I’ve planned in the first place. The Cuban Crab Migration, from TV to Reality I can’t remember exactly when I saw the crab…

    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…
