    Don’t Pursue Your Dreams If They Are Always Changing

    After reviewing my life, I realised something: I don’t have a specific dream or ambition. When I was young, I never thought of being a writer. Instead, I wanted to be a autopist since I am pretty into bloody and gore stuff. However I didn’t go for it, which I still don’t get it. Even now. Afterwards, I thought of being an architect, but I didn’t submit it as one of the choices after getting my O level results. On the other hand, I went to an engineering school and took up computing.   It’s funny, isn’t it? Those desires were part of my dream for a period of time yet I never…

    Impulsive Travelling Is Never For The Faint-Hearted

    I stopped caring about what people tell me whenever they see my travelling stories on Instagram. Now, I am completely omitted to posting those pictures on social media. Why? It’s just so toxic. Trying to explain to people who are already judgemental. People giving their own input as it’s their business to do so.   After knowing me for quite some time, do you really think I would take at least a week or more than a week? It’s not going to happen any time soon as now I really like the way I travel. It’s good for me, bank account and of course my mental health. If you’re interested to read…

    We Relapse And Make Mistakes, But We Are Still Human

    Perfection is overrated.  Yet, everyone (including myself) seeks perfection. We try so hard, do everything in our power and beyond to be perfect. We fail. We lose control. That basically sums up a lot of us.    We spend all our lives trying to be perfect, to please everyone around us: the perfect child, the perfect sibling, the perfect friend, the perfect partner. And,this list goes on.   But, no one is perfect.  We lose ourselves trying to be; We lose control. The pressure from society, family, and the people around us keeps piling. There is only so much we can take before we break.   If you keep pouring…

    Plot Twist: Humbert Has No Desire To Be With Lolita

    If anyone has ever read / seen ‘Lolita’, it’s about this man who was obsessed with a 12-year-old girl, Dolores Haze. Afterwards, he became her Stepfather to be closer with her. After her mother’s passing, he got sexually involved with her. For my case, there wasn’t a relationship from the start. Just sheer admiration to my one and only Humbert. I met my Humbert through a social gathering when I was 18 and he was 38. He calls me Lo since he’s from France and my last name reminded him of the book Lolita. A name that makes me like my Chinese name a little more. When I first met him, he…

    Guest Post for September: What Type Of Traveler Are You?

    I call myself an explorer, an adventurer and therefore, a traveler. It’s all interconnected. During my childhood, books were my best friends. Adventures, mysteries, romances. This is how my life was going to be, I used to think. I didn’t know back then, but my life was already full of adventures at that time. My family was constantly moving and every new house, new school, and the new city was a new adventure. For some time, my dream was to go to Disneyland. As I grew and learned about new places, Europe became my dream destination. I am Brazilian and my family was middle class but not rich enough to…

    Bonus Article: We Had A Moment And You Think It’s Gonna Last

    It’s funny to see how some people would try many ways to revive that special moment as if it’s as simple as lighting a cigarette. Feelings, on the other hand, don’t work this way. They fade if the effort isn’t consistent. My friend used to talk to me about this German guy, who is our mutual friend. Well, we both derived that he’s someone who is trying to smash her instead of being genuinely interested in her. Don’t drop me a text and say something which you used to say in the past. Something around the line of “I still miss you” or whatsoever. The feelings aren’t there anymore, right?…

    I’d Rather Be Reserved In A Relationship

    Being reserved sucks but being proactive when he doesn’t give you his attention? It sucks even more. Period. One of my friends used to call me out about being overly passive. What’s wrong with that? Being proactive at times just won’t work. To be honest, I get worried whenever my female friends talk about a possible love interest and how much she’s into him. I know there exists a possibility that she might want to chase after the guy.   If a female ever chased after a guy for a relationship, most likely there won’t be one.   Assume rejection first. Assume you’re the rule, not the exception. ~ He is…

    Work Smart Or Work Hard? Well, Just Do Both

    People are always talking about working smart and not working hard, but for myself, I am always not working smart solely. After stepping out of the workforce for a period of time, I would like to say you need to work hard and work smart at the same time.   If you don’t work hard from the start, how do you learn to work smart at the later part?   “I don’t think you are working smart, but rather working hard. You ought to work smart.” One of my coworkers likes to educate me via saying this particular line to me To be honest, I never feel I am working hard…

    Waking Up Alone In A Foreign Bedroom

    Whenever people tell me how much they envy my travel lifestyle, all I have to say is that I did work hard for it. Money isn’t just handed to me on a silver plate. When I show a part of my life on social media, I will receive all these backlashes from people whom I know in real life. Most of them view my social media platform as a source of negativity as I often post raw stuff that is heavily associated with emo. Oh well, I can’t please everybody. Therefore, I am just going to please myself. I do like what I have posted. Behind every travelling photos, I…

    I’m Not Anti-Social; I’m Just Picky About Who My Friends Are

    I am an introvert. Can a blogger be introverted? Don’t they write content that is viewed by many all around the world? Well, I guess I just broke that myth.   On popular media, introverts are always portrayed as the quiet and aloof kids who have no friends and eat lunch alone in the bathroom. Why do introverts always have such a bad reputation?   Imagine if everyone in the world were to be extroverts. They all would be fighting to steal the spotlight. Who would be the people working behind the scenes? There can’t be movies or shows with just actors and no cameramen. That’s ridiculous and unrealistic. Why…
