The Law of Attraction: What I Learned from My Success Transformation Masterclass

Are there ever moments in your life when you feel that something life-changing is about to happen? What do you do then? Do you take advantage of that moment, or do you walk away? I often do the former. This is why I was so thankful that I didn't say no when I was invited to join a masterclass on the Law of Attraction and Neurolinguistic Programming. And I would have if I had listened to...

Work-Life Balance: The Case for Taking a Vacation

Work-life balance is a favorite topic among millennials. It's the one thing that you apparently have to sacrifice if you want to get ahead in your career. I know this for a fact; in the past, I've even worked with ultra-competitive young professionals who discourage others from taking time off from work. I used to share their point of view until I started experiencing heart burns and...

Why I’m Still on Facebook

Originally appeared on Inquirer's Young Blood on April 3, 2018. I have a terrible habit of browsing my Facebook feed first thing in the morning. Even before I brush off Sandman's dust from my eyes, I will have read all my friends’ updates on my news feed and all the news articles on issues I don’t even care about. Like so many things that I know are bad for me, such as sugar,...

My Experience with Booky Prime

I promised never to use my blog to complain and whine about something I don't like or something that's too upsetting. But I need help in deciding what to do, so I hope you could read my story and leave a comment below. Last year, I discovered a useful app called Booky. It's an online restaurant booking app that gives its users discounts and buy one, get one (BOGO) deals. Along with Zomato...

January Blog Challenge: Focus

To become really good at something, you need to have something more than talent. You need to have laser focus and consistency. You need to have dogged determination to persevere even when you hardly see any results. This year, I decided that I will stop whining and not undermine myself and start working on the things that I love. I have wasted 28 years wringing my hands in anxiety,...

How I was sort of kidnapped in a mall in Singapore

Yesterday, I flew to Singapore for a short vacation and to spend time with family and friends. Later that same evening, I went to an upscale mall near the City Hall MRT Station to have dinner with friends. I thought I could easily find the restaurant as it was supposed to be near the exit. Although my friend's directions were a bit confusing, I had full confidence I could find the place....

Traveling to Forget? Here are Real Stories to Help You Move On

  Many of us have been there: once, we wanted to get away from everything after a heartbreak. I've read about this on different travel groups in Facebook that to me, it has almost become clichéd to travel to nurse a heartbreak. I've been there before, but I was younger and didn't have the money for a getaway haha. What I did was to look outward and be more sensitive to...

Millennial Travel Habits: Are We Really That Annoying?

Last weekend, I came across a blog post about how millennials, the most talked about demographic, are "losing the real essence of traveling." What does that mean? What's so different about millennial travel habits that annoy, well, other millennials? Universal millennial travel habits? This aggravating post discussed why the author thinks millennials (him not included) do not...

March Blog Challenge

For my last entry to our ongoing blog challenge at the office, I chose to post a photo collage rather than a photo essay (sorry, Jonjon!). These are my co-workers from my previous job with whom I've spent more than two years. I have nothing but good things to say about these folks. In fact, I have every reason to be thankful that I had the opportunity to work (and have fun) with each of...
