What You Could Get In Mexico City For $10 – Things To Do When You Want To Burn Your Pesos

Hi everyone! 😀

What is the first thing that comes in mind whenever you hear something about Mexico? Nowadays, maybe you’d remember the ballad of Trump and Mexican Walls. Or since FIFA World Cup 2018 just ended up a couple of months ago, maybe you remember that time when they beat Germany 1-0.

Well, I grew up with Mexican telenovela so that’s probably something that I would associate with when I heard about Mexico. And burrito, of course! 😛

Anyway, on this week’s $10 series, I would like to thank Adrien from Strangers Abroad Podcast for covering Mexico City in the series. So, here we go!

What You Could Get In Kathmandu For $10 – From Getting Scammed To Visiting Three Places All At Once!

By the time you’re reading this piece, I’ll probably get too busy due to Asian Games that will be held in Jakarta and Palembang starting this month.

And it’s not a coincidence that I mentioned it, because this week we’re going to cover a city in Asia for our What You Could Get In The City For $10 series. And not only that, because I’m also volunteering in the event so yeah…

Now, now… Thanks to Yen from Swing Abroad, as he is going to cover the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu this time.

I’ve never been to anywhere in Nepal before, but unfortunately, 2 of my seniors during high school have been declared ‘gone’ during the huge earthquake there 2 years ago. We’ve never found their bodies, at least not until now. The only thing we found is one of their ID cards a few weeks after it happened.

Like it or hate it, Nepal for me is also associated with the tragedy. So, before we start… I wish everyone safety and good time wherever you travel! 🙂

Another Bucket List Checked: Kranji War Memorial, Singapore

Still another post related to my last Singapore trip! 😀

As I mentioned earlier, if there was one place that I really wanted to visit in Singapore, then that would Kranji War Memorial.

The thing is, lately I always have this urge to visit the cemetery wherever I travel, especially if it’s a war cemetery… Why? Because I suppose that’s the best way to remind myself not to take life for granted. But other than that, there’s something that makes me want to visit the cemeteries even more.

It was when one time, I posted a pic I took at Taukkyan War Cemetery on Instagram. Another user randomly commented it telling me that her Grandpa is there. I was confused what she meant until she explained that her late Grandpa was a soldier for the British Army and died in Myanmar during World War 2.

She never got a chance to visit his grave in Taukkyan, but she got his block number and left it with me just in case I’m coming again for a visit. I was a bit emotional when I exchanged messages with her through Instagram DM.
