How To Lose Friends and Make Everyone Hate You

Recently, there was a drama among my former university friends. It all started out with one friend who suddenly published a super racist tweet against the Chinese. That was super ironic, since we went to a Catholic university with most of our friends and lecturers are Chinese by ethnicity.

The tweet was indeed shocking, but not exactly surprising. Not so much, as I’ve been gossipping about her with some friends not so long before this tweet came out of the surface.

To be fair, I was quite close to this racist friend back in the day. As much as I hate it, I kind of understand the background of how this friend could be the way she is now.

And despite the fact that ever since I’m blocked by her on Twitter, this drama basically gave me an epiphany to create content describing how easy it is to lose friends and make everyone hate you. Like what happened to my friend after the backlash.

Similarities and Differences of Dating in Our 20s vs 30s

It’s been a few months since my 30th birthday. Recently, I got a message from Shi Hui asking me for details on my dating life since she found out that I’m dating a Singaporean guy. And at the time, she suggested me to start writing on a post about what makes dating in my early 30s different than my 20s.

I figure it’s actually a brilliant idea. There are so many things to talk about when it comes to the differences, either from within or the external situation. So, now that I’m honestly running out of the ideas what to write next now that I’ve finished my Borneo trip post… Here comes the post about dating in our 20s vs 30s!

So, what are the similarities? And what things that make one different than the other?!

What To Expect on Online Dating Sites Before You Finally Find ‘The One’

So, in case you don’t know, I’m currently dating someone. Despite the fact that I’m not sure whether he’s ‘the one’ or whatever you call it when it comes to your better half or whatever, I’m in the mood to write the good ol’ time playing on the dating games. 😛

First of all, I’ve met my boyfriend through an online dating site. It happened so fast, just a few days after I decided to cut off the talk with someone with whom I had a situationship for a few months. But long story short, we agree to give the relationship a try. To see if we could handle each other, leading to something more serious like marriage in the future.

I know, it sounds freaking terrifying, but then again… I think I’ve had enough to play around on the dating games. I’m tired of it, especially now that I think I’ve seen enough from online dating sites.

To be honest with you, it’s insanely difficult to find ‘the one’ through online dating sites. It’s like either you enjoy the journey, or choose the conventional way to date. And guess what? I was the first before finally trying to take an effort dating my current boyfriend now.

And here, I want to share with you what to expect on online dating sites as it’s really not as romantic as you think it is. Well, obviously.

Review: Eyebrow Threading & Brazilian Waxing at Waxhaus 23 Paskal Bandung

Do you shave or wax?

Well, I used to shave everything from my eyebrows to my pubic hair. That, until I decided to start waxing around 3 years ago in Jakarta. Ever since, knowing that it totally stings to wax after having your hair previously shaved, I never really look back to the shaving option ever again.

That, until after Asian Games 2018 finished last year when I moved back to Bandung for good. Despite the fact I’m originally from Bandung, I had never waxed anywhere in the city. But since the chance would be rare for me to occasionally go to Jakarta, I decided to find a new wax parlor where I could have my eyebrows and hair down there done.

During my time in Jakarta, I usually went to N’s Sugar Waxing since it’s located close to my place in South Jakarta. After googling some information about waxing place in Bandung, I found out about Waxhaus.

I went to Waxhaus for eyebrow threading and Brazilian waxing earlier this year before going to Singapore. And recently, I came back for the same procedure.
