What You Could Get In Bangkok For $10 – Feeling Great at Wat Saket!

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Back again at the series of What You Could Get In The City For $10, beautravelers!

In the last couple of series, we managed to cover what $10 could do in some of the most expensive cities in the world like Paris or New York. This time, we’re going back to Asia, and probably one of your favorite cities in the world. What is it?

Yup, it’s Bangkok! 😀

I mean, it’s not surprising at all that Thailand is really popular as a tourist destination. Not only is there a lot of places to visit, from temples to beaches, but everything is also so affordable for our budget! And don’t forget about the fact that it’s called The Land of Smiles. 🙂

This time, thanks to Candice from Voyage-bound Girls who took some time to write the feature about what you could get for $10 in the capital city of Thailand.

Living with Stereotype and Expectation: Being A Sundanese Woman

Reading Time: 5 minutes

I suppose we all agree that it’s almost impossible to live without any stereotype and expectation.

Maybe you’re the Brit who can’t even make your tea right so you feel like a failure for not being able to do what the society expects you to do. And for us Indonesian, maybe it’s such a failure for never visiting Bali. You see what I did there? I am that failure. 😛

But even among Indonesian, as we get used to dividing ourselves with ethnic, religion, and all that, I came across to make this post. In particular, I’m actually interested to find out what stereotypes that people have towards me.

And this time, what I did is to google what stereotypes out there about Sundanese women in general. I am one of them, and I want to see whether it fits me. And if not, why not?

11 Random Facts About the Countries in 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia and Some Smartass Prediction: Group A & B

Reading Time: 17 minutes

Hi everyone! 😀

In case you don’t know about my obsession over football, you could first check out my previous post about the hot football players in 2000s that made me glad that I hit the puberty back in the days. But since we’re now counting down the days to the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, I want to have a special feature for this big event.

It’s because that I started my obsession with FIFA World Cup years ago as well. I remember I got this booklet with a lot of information about football and the countries that played in the tournament.

And for exactly the same reason, I want to have a similar feature on my blog. However, since I’m the queen of the random stuff, I’ll create this feature to be as random as possible. After all, I’m the kind of person who shamelessly asked my skinhead friend how far he washed his face and whether he used shampoo or soap to wash his head.

In case now you’re wondering about the answer, the answer is that he still uses shampoo to wash his head since soap formula is not so good for the scalp that may cause unwanted dandruff.
