I Bought 2 Tickets For Singapore Next Month (And I Will Travel Differently This Time)

Reading Time: 6 minutes

So, despite I didn’t really have any plan to travel anywhere except for my ‘big’ trip later this year, I suddenly bought a return ticket to Singapore next month.

This time, not only that I bought a flight ticket, but also another ticket that has become pretty much the highlight of this year for me: a ticket for a pre-season match between Arsenal vs Atletico Madrid! For those who probably don’t know, watching Arsenal live in the stadium is one of the things to do on my 30-before-30 list.

Singapore is probably one of the countries that I have visited the most outside my home country Indonesia. Honestly, I have no idea how many times I visited this city-state, either for work or holiday if not transit.

Since this trip is somewhat impromptu, as I usually plan my trip ahead long before the D-day and this time I only had around a month to prepare things up. So little time with so little money if I gotta be honest.

Here’s My Two Cents, But I Don’t Think You Should Pay For a Dating Site!

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Could you get the oxymoron part on the title of this post?!

Like I’m actually mentioning two cents, but then my suggestion is not to pay for something. I mean, isn’t it a genius?! #punintended

But anyway, my post today will be back to the dating scheme since I just realized that it’s been awhile since the last time I posted anything related to dating or any beau topic in general. Not gonna blame you though, it’s been months since the last time I went out for a date with some random strangers that I met through a free dating site.

In fact, it’s been awhile since the last time I checked some of dating site accounts that I’ve got on several platforms. But one thing that they’ve got in common: I don’t bother to pay extra for a dating site.

The Ultimate Guide to When You Want to Start Earning Extra Income Through Blogging

Reading Time: 11 minutes

If you ask me whether I’m a full-time blogger or not, I’m conflicted to answer. In a way, I spend most of my time sitting in front of the computer and check what I can do with it to be more attractive to read. Be it regarding the content, or the layout. But then again, I barely could live solely from my blog.

So, this post is not exactly about how you could earn six-figure in a month from blogging because it’s not. This post is about how sometimes something could turn out alright when you least expected it to work even well enough.

My source of income is mainly from some remote works that I’ve got. I work as a freelance copywriter for some local Indonesian brands while I’ve also worked as Social Media Strategist for some local celebrity.

These jobs work well for me to at least pay my bills on time. But compared to my previous 9-to-5 job, it’s more than half of my usual income. And the only good thing is that I no longer have to pay for the rent as I now live in my parents’ house.

And one of the things that have turned out alright for me after I moved back in is this blog. Why? Because unexpectedly, this blog helps me to get some extra income every once in a while.
