    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…

    Szép Parliament of Budapest & Gundel’s Famous Pancake

    In the previous blog post, you’ve seen a szép (Hungarian: beautiful) photo of the Hungarian Parliament Building at night. This time, I’ll let you see the details of the building and the grand interior design. Of course, I’ll end the post with a review of the famous homemade pancake of Gundel, to make it sweeter 😉 Also known as the Parliament of Budapest, it’s a top tourist destination that one must visit. The beautiful building is located in the Pest side of the city, right on the banks of the Danube River. As you need to get a ticket to enter, I suggest you come in the morning or pre-purchase…

    Beautiful Budapest, Where I Left My Heart in 2015

    I’ll never forget the joy when I starred at my very first Schengen visa in 2015. After all, it was granted by the German Embassy in Kuala Lumpur with much effort! That year, I embarked on my first Europe trip and lost my heart to Budapest. The inspiration to write this post came after I booked my 2020 Balkan trip. Due to my financial limitation, I never want to return to the same country until I travelled to all of the countries in the world. But, my beloved city turns out to be on the list! When you visit Budapest, you’ll understand why it’s easy to fall in love. The…

    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…

    Summer in Sorrento

    As someone who dreams of traveling to as many countries as possible yet has a limited budget, usually, I only visit a country once. However, there’s a country that I won’t mind to re-visit again and again. And that country is… Italy! xxx During the summer holiday in June 2017, I went for a 12-day Italy trip and dropped by at Sorrento for a few days. It was a very memorable trip – excellent food, classy architecture, lively people, beautiful scenery… Summer in Italy could be really hot but trust me, once you visit their gorgeous beaches and coastal towns, it’s totally worth it to travel to Italy in summer!…

    Digital Detox Trip: City Edition

    I wrote about Digital Detox Trip: Nature Edition before, now let’s talk about how we can truly act on it when travelling in the city! How attached are you with your smartphone when you’re travelling? Are you always on your phone, busy updating your social media or chatting with your friends and family? If yes, don’t you feel like you’re missing the point of travelling because you’re not present while travelling? I get it. WiFi is very important because you can easily obtain direction, suggestion, etc within a click. For me, I prefer to keep my phone in the bag unless I find a free WiFi during my meal/tea time…
