    December’s Guest Post: 3 Benefits of Travelling Solo

    Advice From A Fellow Traveller Every time I go travelling on my own, people ask me “Why?” “Don’t you have anyone to go with?” “Aren’t you afraid of being alone?” “What about your safety?” After hearing these questions, you might be put off ever wanting to travel on your own. Don’t risk listening to doubters! You might be missing out on these benefits… 1. Do What You Want, When You Want This is by far the biggest advantage when travelling solo. Wake up whenever you like. Want to stay in bed after the hangover from the night before? No problem. When you travel with someone else, you need to consider…

    If you are a frequent reader of KayAreWhys, you would know about this special section. Every last week of the month, we would showcase guest posts from people across the globe.

    Guest Post for October: I’ve Been Moving Around, But Singapore Has A Special Place In My Heart

    Just a little fun fact about myself: I originated from a small village in the hills of Yorkshire England which is filled with forests and rivers. I got to experience the four seasons all year round, which is pretty awesome. I moved to Singapore in 2013 with my family and found myself in a completely different world. I didn’t know Singapore was a country. It had been mentioned to me as a place where my dad used to go on business trips. I just presumed it would be a typical city, like Manchester or York.  Little did I know, what’s awaiting me is actually a fully developed country, filled with…

    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…

    Guest Post for August: Forgiveness Is An Act Of Self-Love

    “I’ll never forgive you for ….” We all have said that at one point in time and most probably burst out crying afterwards. It’s totally fine. We are humans and anger is one of our many emotions. During the first days of the emotional aftermath, our rage would be huge, sometimes beyond our control. What people need to understand is that forgiveness is as important as moving on. At some point, we should make amends with everyone who hurt us previously.   When would it be appropriate to start forgiving?    Sometimes, it’s extremely difficult to forget everything, which means that it will take time to heal. This is completely…

    Guest Post for July: An Open Letter To My Forever Person

      Dear Krystal, It’s undeniable that we have a beautifully complicated friendship, which can’t really be expressed or defined by words or friendship quotes. And, I won’t let anyone tell me otherwise. Screw friendship quotes, we’re too cool for that.   From the day when we were caught judging others for their questionable behaviours to drinking excessively on our birthday parties or crying over men who don’t give a fuck about our feelings, there is no turning back. Not to forget about laughing like lunatics in high-class restaurants.   Introducing you to my family members is such a heartening and warm feeling. Imagine my happiness when you are being integrated…

    Bonus Article: No Matter What, I’d Rather Fight It Out With My Boyfriend

    My boyfriend and I fight a lot. A lot. It happens so often that we started keeping no-fight-streaks, very similar to the famous Snapchat streaks. How did that turn out? The longest streak we could keep was 2 days and, we went back to our usual arguments.   Honestly, maintaining actual Snapchat streaks was way easier than keeping up with these no-fight streaks.   Most of our arguments often revolves around me not having enough time to go on fun adventures. It’s not that I don’t want to go on road trips and take Instagram worthy pictures; Work and school take up so much time that ‘fun’ no longer exists…
