Around The World With The Beauties! – (Indonesia) Roro Mendut Royal Black Spice V-Scrub & (Philippines) Bare Body Essentials Vanity Mask Double Deep Repair

Reading Time: 7 minutes

Hello beauties! 😀

It’s been awhile since the last time I wrote my own piece for Around The World With The Beauties series, so as I got connected with Amanda from Filipinow for this month’s feature… I decided to feature my recommendation as well this time.

A few months ago, I featured some other Filipino and Bruneian local beauty products as they’re both ASEAN country members. Now, well… Both Indonesia and the Philippines are also the country members of ASEAN, but other than that, do you know that we’ve shared so many similarities between the two countries?

First of all, both are archipelagic countries comprising thousands of island in each country. Not to mention that they are also republic countries, with both have elected president as their head of government. Although I just finished the other Pramoedya’s books Child of All Nations and I just found out an interesting fact: Philippines is the first republic country in Asia.

Although I’m not gonna talk about it this time, as we’re gonna focus on the beauty stuff. 😉

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’.
