Less than 100 Reasons Why You Should Think Twice Before Begpacking in Asia

There was this article that has been shared for way too many times on the travelers’ group lately, and it is the one about Bali reporting begpackers to their embassies.

Look, I know I’m some kind of a failed Indonesian as I’ve never been to Bali before. However, I’ve seen this begpacker phenomenon a few times in Bangkok and Hong Kong. I don’t know though, there’s probably somewhere else that I’ve been where there were also begpackers.

However, I remember I was curious about why so many white street musicians around Tsim Sha Tsui when I was about to see Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. It was only a few minutes when I saw some hippies spreading a floor mat and taking out some stuff from their traveling printout pics to even their friendship bracelet whatever.

I was amused and annoyed at the same time. And let me speak for myself, as a traveler holding a weak passport like the Indonesian one. Frankly speaking, if I were to do the same thing as they did in their country, I would be deported in no time.

But life isn’t always fair, so the only thing I could do about it is to spread the awareness on why you should think twice before deciding to begpack around Asia. This especially applies in the less developed countries like those in Southeast Asia region.

Around The World With The Beauties! – (Brunei) Beaute Rossera Botanical Lip Balm Honey Lemon & (Thailand) Annabella Angel Aqua Expert Hydrated Facial Mask

Hi everyone!

I know, the feature that was once to be posted monthly has now only appeared once in a semester. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience. In my defense, it took me a while for me to decide which product from which country to be posted first. Not to mention that I’m still trying my best to connect the two stuff that I’m going to cover here.

To be frank, at first I was really planning to write about a beauty product from both Brunei and Malaysia. That was just so it would be related to my Borneo trip. Unfortunately, one of the Malaysian beauty products that I was about to recommend ended up being so disappointing.

That forced me to wait until I got another product to recommend so I could start working on the new feature after my last series on Around The World With The Beauties.

Thankfully, now that I’ve got 2 new beauty product recommendations from 2 different countries with a similarity between both: Brunei and Thailand. From Brunei, I’ve got Beaute Rossera Botanical Lip Balm Honey Lemon. Also, I’ve got Thai Annabella Angel Aqua Expert Hydrated Facial Mask.

12 Couple Travelers Who Spark Joy To Your Traveling Plan With Your Partner

Happy Valentine’s Day, folks! 😀

If I usually spent Valentine’s day alone, being single and miserable, then this year it’s different. Well, technically I’m not single but then again I’d still spend my Valentine’s day alone since my boyfriend is in Singapore.

But then again, let me throw some mushy stuff to you in case you feel miserable just because you’re far away from your partner on this Valentine’s day: 14 February doesn’t really matter when you’re with the right partner. Why? Because you don’t need a special day to celebrate love. You could always celebrate love everyday. Or hate, for that matter. 😛

I mean, we agree that as much as you love your partner, there is some stuff about them that makes you want to rip their neck sometimes.

Anyway, since I’ve just jumped into the bandwagon to plan out a vacation with my boyfriend… I’m checking out some other couple travelers to get some inspo about traveling with my partner. And I decided to list the 12 of my favorites on the day of love. Yeay!
