Time and Tide Waits for No Man

0 comments
10 years ago I decided to take the leap and found myself going out my home and start a new. At that point in my life I have only been to two countries including this little red dot that I have now been calling home.

I am glad I did as it has opened a lot of opportunities for me especially in getting the chance to travel other countries that I could only dream of back then. I didn't know that I have a love for travelling. Reality is, if you ask me now where did all my earnings went to, then a big chunk of it went to satisfying this "love".

What I do have now has become a comfort zone. Having this comfort zone though, I did have passed up on at least two life changing (if I can call that) opportunities, which one could have been a chance to move to another country.

Time and Tide Waits for No Man. Life is only perfect I guess how I choose it to be, and today I still do have my ups and downs. I have been saying this, 2017 so far is the most challenging year with a lot of personal struggles but with that I have renewed my faith.

Things have been improving for me on a personal level - taking one day at a time. I know the quote means that maybe I would never get the same opportunity again. I do live in hope that I could still get the same opportunity or even better. We are all but travellers in this life.

My friend, if you have the chance to read a part of me, thank you for dropping by. May you find joy and enlightenment in your life. Follow the tide as it has been waiting for you.

Financial Review and Planning

0 comments
First order of business in 2018...Finance Review and Planning

Today, I met up with my financial adviser. (chuchal, I have one)

Well having no background in finance and don't have much time to do my own research I really need one, and imnsho everyone should have one. Or at least someone they can trust to give advice how to manage their finances. That and doing our own due diligence. It's not bad at all when someone reminds you your own financial situation. Anyway crazy rich asians have it, then so can I *LOLS*

Based on my 'profile' [single, peak in career, peak of my age, etc.] I should be saving more, but 'should' is the operative word that I should be doing. *oopps*

Anyway, some serious discerning and lifestyle change that needs to happen. Coz I do have major plans coming up in the first half of the year... I think I better smarten up and tighten my lose belt a little bit.

Hope to look back at this entry and tell myself that I did made a good start to the year and managed to keep this momentum till I get things in order.

Happy New Year 2018!

0 comments
Welcoming the new year in the beautiful island of Bintan, Indonesia!
Situated south-east of Singapore, it is an easy and relatively cheap destination getaway from busy little red dot.
Decided to stay in Bintan Lagoon Resort because it already has its own ferry terminal from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal but then since the weather was grumpier than usual, our ferry had to alight us in Bandar Bentan Telani which is about a 15-20 min distance away from Bintan Lagoon Resort. Still quite convenient because they have provided bus transfers from that terminal.

Wishing everyone happiness and joy in 2018. May we all be blessed and be a blessing to another. And I personally hope and pray that my 2018 comes with a lot of personal changes - from eating habits, to going for a healthier lifestyle, career changes, more travels, happier and more positive outlook in life. I shall put the chaos of 2017 behind me and look forward to #change4DBetter
