Having some experience living from home either at university or working abroad can greatly help you to prepare. Whether or not this is your first time, here are the biggest factors to consider before taking the decision to move.

Euphoria Came Together With The Moon

When 2017 came, things started to get better.


It always amazes me how fast everything can change in an instant. Sometimes, with a blink of an eye or a flick of a hand, everything in our lives can turn upside down. There are moments when we thought that we would get stuck at a particular situation or with a certain person for a very long time... but somehow, we would always find a way to move forward. Suddenly, the universe will give us exactly what we need to get away from those that have caused us pain, suffering and confusion.

Time Flies - So How Do You Slow It Down?


Every single New Year, you will see the same comments cropping up on social media. People will lament the passing of time, marvel at how quickly the last year has passed by, and proclaim a desire to slow down time. It’s the time when a parent posts a picture of their child about to embark on a new term of school, the refrain doesn’t miss a beat: “how do I slow down time?!”

The Unknown: Life In Black and White

I know. It's been a long time since I posted something personal and sensible on this blog. There were many factors that contributed to my decision of choosing to lie low on my social media accounts as well as on my blogging sites. Well, the past few months (last quarter of 2016 and first month of 2017) were quite shaky for me. I knew I needed to take some time off to think about what's going on with my life and to reprogram myself so I became virtually invisible.

Self-Help Saviors For When Life Gets Too Much

Do you ever have those days when you feel like you can’t cope? You want to scream or shout, bang your fists on the table or let all your emotions loose and have an hour-long crying session. If you do, you’re not abnormal. In fact, you’re perfectly normal. Many of us have very hectic and demanding lives. If we’re not working, we’re studying, trying to navigate our way through crowds of commuters or caring for children or family members. The nature of modern life means that often, we get to a point where it’s all too much. If you’re familiar with this feeling, these self-help saviors should come in handy. Here are some tips to help you cope with your emotions and find positivity in difficult situations.

Protect Your Blog

Your blog is under threat, whether you realise it or not. Unfortunately, many people take the security of their blog and its content for granted. That’s a mistake that you need to avoid, however. People often steal content from blogs, post it on their own websites and then claim that it’s theirs. You need to be on the lookout for that kind of behaviour, and that’s not the only threat to be aware of either.

To combat all the threats out there, there are some steps that you can take right now. There is no time to waste, so don’t hang around or put it off any longer. Read on to learn more about some of the things that you should do to protect your blog and the content you publish on it.

Farewell Year of Ambiguity


There will be no lengthy narration of how crazy my 2016 days were. I just want to give a shout out to the year of ambiguity I will never forget. What matters now is that 2017 is here, together with the uncertainties and endless possibilities. I'll end my short post with: "Here's to better days."

Who Are You On Cold Nights?

There is something about cold nights. They make you more vulnerable than you already are. On these nights, you will start to think about all the decisions you made and all the choices you will be making. You will ask questions about the "what could have beens", the "what ifs", and the "maybes" in your life. Your thoughts will stir up all the emotions that you have inside -- those that you express to the people around you and those that you try to hide from them. All these will happen naturally which makes it quite funny yet frightening at the same time. The cold nights will make you too emotional and a certified over thinker.

I don't like who I become (or who I am) on cold nights. I hate it when I am left alone with my thoughts and feelings on a cold night like tonight. So, for tonight, just let me write and write and write and write and write...

Make Your Dream Car Happen Now

Who do you want to become? What do you want to achieve? What is your goal? What is your dream? These are the questions that each of us should know the answer to. Nothing is scarier than not knowing what we want or what we aspire of. BPI Family Savings Bank understands how important it is to reach one's dream. To have a full understanding of what I'm talking about, check out this inspiring TVC:

"I Met Someone and that Scares the Shit Out of Me"




"Dear Karen,

If you're reading this, it means I actually worked up the courage to mail it so good for me. You don’t know me very well, but if you get me started I tend to go on and on about how hard the writing is for me. This is the hardest thing I ever had to write.
