7 Breakup Songs That You’d Probably Need to Listen Right Now

I’ve got a confession to make today: I’m back to the single world again. I recently broke up, it was around last week when we decided to part our ways for our own good. No drama whatsoever, I guess at this point it was our decision as two adults who just happened to be together for a few months. At some point, we realized that maybe it wasn’t a good idea that way. So we liberated each other through a breakup.

Pretty much like many other breakups, it wasn’t pretty either. There was some disappointment along the way, the thought of so many what ifs. But I think one of the good things about dating in our 30s is that we know when we need to take separate ways, it’s only for the betterment of one and the other.

I didn’t even cry when we eventually decided to end our relationship. As I said, this is probably the best for us. But hey, still it doesn’t stop me from listening to some breakup songs to pour my emotion.

Because of this, I decided to make a playlist of some breakup songs that might be useful for you. Especially for those of you who probably need to listen to some of them. Not to make the condition even worse, just to ensure yourself that everything is going to be alright.

It is, even though it sucks right now.

Should You Travel in the Pursuit of Beauty?

We can do a lot of things in the pursuit of beauty. We’ll put ourselves through pain, and we even sometimes travel far and wide to get the beauty treatments that we want. But is it worth it to travel to another country for a spa experience, a facial or even a tummy tuck?

It could be a great use of your travel time if you want to improve your look, boost your self-esteem and even save some money on your favorite beauty treatments. There are both advantages and disadvantages to traveling for beauty, so you should think carefully before planning a trip.

Museum of the Asian-African Conference: A Must Visit Place for History Junkies in Bandung, Indonesia

Hi everyone! 😀

I know it’s Thursday already and I was supposed to publish something for the $10 series yesterday, but I don’t do it this week on purpose.

First of all, I had to do all the maintenance work for my blog in the past few days. And I had some trouble with the collaborator whose post was supposed to publish this week.

But don’t worry about it, because sometimes you actually gain something when you lose the other thing. And this time, I’ll continue to write something that was intended to write a long time ago.

Now that I mentioned about my staycation at Savoy Homann Hotel, I’m still yet to write about the rest of my staycation. And I’m going to write the details now as I want to share my experience to visit Museum of the Asian-African Conference that is located just across the hotel.

Guest Post, Collab Post, and Link Building: What They Are and Why They Matter When You Start Blogging

It’s been a while since the last time I wrote a post on blogging. It’s not exactly my favorite topic to write about, but I think the benefits of me writing about it is that I could somewhat explain it in words that a 5-year-old would understand.

You know, the benefits of having English as the third language. You can write in it, but you know that there are still some flaws in-between that a bilingual or a trilingual like you could relate. And that’s the kind of information that I wish I could get the first time I started blogging in English. 😛

Anyway, after several attempts to write posts on the blogosphere topic, now it’s time for me to write about something essential when you just start blogging. When you want to take blogging seriously, apparently just write is not enough. You also need networking to get more exposure to what you do.

You might be not a fan of networking ideas. I mean, I know I am not. But when it comes to blogging, networking is somewhat easier than I thought it was. Some networking activities that I’m glad I’ve learned so far are these three things that I’m going to write today: guest post, collab post, and link building.

So, what are they and why do they even matter?

What You Could Get in Kuala Lumpur for $10 – More Than Just the Twin Tower

If you ask me what city I’m most familiar with in any ASEAN countries, apart from Singapore then I will definitely mention Kuala Lumpur for the next. Ever since I visited the capital city of Malaysia for the first time in 2013, I always stop by the city at least once in every year. It could be for the sole purpose of travel, transit, or even work.

No kidding, back when I was working as a flight attendant, I probably flew to KUL more often than most of my Malaysian colleagues. There were times when I even had a week layover in the city. If you asked me whether I’ve ever given up a room at DoubleTree for a university to a dormitory room in a university, my answer is yes I have.

I left my hotel room unoccupied to a dormitory room at UTM, just so I could have a sleepover with Miza during my long layover in the city.

After quitting my job as a flight attendant, I surprisingly travel more frequently. And whenever I get to choose a transit in either Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, more often than not I’d choose the latter. And the city itself will be the one that we cover now. Thanks to Kirsty from World for A Girl who will be sharing her recommendation with us!
