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.

5 Kinds of Clickbait that Smart People Shall Not Fall Into

It’s 2018, when everyone is a publisher!

I mean, how many of you would check your post once in every hour to see how many likes you got on Instagram?! Long story short, no matter how much you think you don’t care about it, at some point you’ll try to attract people to see what you post so they can potentially spread the love on your page.

Some people try so hard to do it that they would give some provoking title to get some unique visitors to their page. Hence, the invention of the term clickbait that we all know now.

To be fair, some of us learned the hard way that we started to check the content first before we shared an article in social media. The thing is, some others would buy this kind of clickbait. And that’s exactly why the clickbait situation never stops.

But there are some kinds of clickbait that you smart people shall never fall into… Why? Because it’s obviously just a clickbait and not legit.

What are they?

How To Be Basic on Social Media (According To What I See on My Feeds)

Hi everyone!

It’s been awhile since the last time I virtually make fun of people due to the fact that I got a problem with my iPhone since a few months ago. Guess what? I just bought a new phone and now I’m back to my toxic activity that I find hard to get rid of: judging people on social media.

It’s not that I didn’t get an access to my social media at all when my iPhone broke, it was just I didn’t bother to check my personal social media account or what’s on the feeds outside The BeauTraveler when it happened.

And now with my new phone, I’m back to take a look at what’s on the feed consisting a lot of accounts that I’ve been following from my personal account. Those include the celebrities, the football players, and the old friends that I haven’t seen in real life for years.

And geez, those people could successfully make me cringed at times. In a good way, cause thanks to them now I’ve got an idea to start working on this post.

Yup, so I’m here with the topic that you would either hate it or love, agree or disagree. Whatever it is, never forget to be yourself because that’s what makes the world go round. Yes, even when you’re being basic! 😉
