Stone Garden GeoPark: The Merge of Machu Picchu and Capadoccia in Bandung, Indonesia

Reading Time: 11 minutes

I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of a sucky traveler when it comes to my hometown.

Like, I could tell you where to get the best midiye dolma in Izmir, but I gotta think hard if you asked me about the best place to go shopping or the best coffee shop in Bandung. And I wouldn’t guarantee that I could eventually find the answer. 😛

The thing is, despite the fact that I’ve spent 20++ years in Bandung, I rarely have time to explore the city for the sake of being local. I mean, you probably know by now that I’m not exactly a cafe-hopper, and more often than not… I always get too lazy to go out as I only imagine the possibilities to face the traffic jam. Especially during the weekend!

I mean, seriously… As a passenger, I just don’t want to spend extra money for cabs. As a driver, I just can’t hold on to my dear life to drive in the bad traffic. And I’ve been living like a spoiled brat long enough in my life to not consider the other options of public transportations.

So on this post, I would like to share a hidden gem in Bandung that I have visited for the first time a few weeks ago. Located in the west part of Bandung, Stone Garden Geo Park could be reached more than 2 hours from Bandung city center by car with traffic jam.

The good thing is that you could also reach this off-beaten spot in Bandung by train. And that’s what I did when I visited the place. 😉

Is It So Wrong to Find A Sugar Daddy to Fund Your Travel?

Reading Time: 10 minutes

The idea of writing this article came when recently, I stumbled upon a thread on one of the female traveler groups that I’m a member of. The OP was a sex worker based in one of the states in Australia, and basically she asked whether there’s any other sex worker in the group. She wants to try some other opportunities outside her state but she wants to make sure that it’s safe, and more importantly, legal.

What’s surprising is the fact that the thread caused some backlash because some other girls actually called her out for being a whore. And that’s pretty sad.

The thing is, she made it pretty clear that she had no one to oppress her to do what she does. It was based on her consent yet some people still called her out.

Not so long after that, there’s another thread asking whether anyone has ever tried Miss Travel. And then some girls started to pass on the judgment about it being a lady escort’s place to find their customers. Basically, the place for ladies to travel for free just by spreading their legs.

So then I decided to create this post with the hope that maybe, people could see both sides of the story instead of calling people that you barely even know ‘slut’.

Around The World With The Beauties! – (India) Coloressence Satin Smooth Highlighter Blusher & Vanaha Nature In A Box

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Namaste, everyone!

And pretty much like my greeting this time, on this month’s Around The World With The Beauties series, we’re gonna talk about a local beauty product from India.

If I usually cover 2 different products from 2 different bloggers, this time our contributor is just one. And it’s the one and only Neisha from Hale and Belle.

The products we’re gonna talk about here split into two brands. The first is Coloressence Satin Smooth Highlighter Blusher and Vanaha Nature In A Box.

So, if last month we talked about the Brit local beauty products due to the Royal Wedding, this month we’re gonna talk about its colonized country who is predicted to be the new superpower by 2020 due to their influence on the international stage nowadays.

Ready to get to know two of Indian local beauty products? After all, this is the country who has given us Aishwarya Rai and Bollywood in general.
