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.

Review: Malindo Air (A Flight from Kota Kinabalu to Singapore)

Just when I wanted to highly recommend Malindo Air for any flight in Southeast Asia region, I just found out that Malindo has recently changed their policy in terms of free baggage and onboard meals.

So, after my Borneo trip ended, I flew to Singapore with Malindo Air from Kota Kinabalu. And I suppose this was one of the last Malindo flights before they changed the policy. Now that they’ve got a new policy with a few flight options, I’m still going to write a review of my flight anyway.

I’ve also checked the price with each package to compare with my last experience flying with Malindo. So, would I still recommend you to fly with Malindo around ASEAN countries? Here’s the review for this Malindo Air! 🙂

(Review) Yomi Hotel: Where to Stay in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

I can’t believe that the series of my Borneo trip will come to an end in a few minutes. And this post, in particular, is going to be the last post that I’m going to write, covering the places I’ve been in Borneo.

Now that I’ve shared with you what I did during my stay in Kota Kinabalu, it’s time for me to share my view on the accommodation I booked for the trip. By far, the best accommodation where I stayed throughout Borneo would be The Room in Miri. So, what’s my view of the hotel where I stayed during my stop in Sabah?

Well, I chose Yomi Hotel for this trip. Apart from the affordable night rate, the fact that they provide breakfasts for the guest is also my main consideration before finally booking the accommodation.

So, how did I find Yomi Hotel in Kota Kinabalu?

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.
