How to Protect Your Identity Whilst Online Shopping

When it comes to protecting ourselves from things like hackers, identity theft and other kinds of scams online, there’s definitely a lot of information out there for us to take advantage of, so for the most part we’re aware of some of the basic things we can do to keep safe.

However, as technology advances and becomes safer, technology is also advancing for hackers and this gives them a bit of an advantage so we have to ensure we’re staying on top of things to protect ourselves – whether that’s taking practical steps or looking into software such as Jumio.

Jumio can help verify digital identities across the globe which can prove helpful and effective when you either go online shopping or even traveling.

Skrill: Transfer Money Internationally From Indonesia, Hassle-Free!

In case you don’t know yet, not so long after I had a collaboration with Shi Hui for the post on Indonesian guys vs Singaporean guys, who knows that I end up dating the latter to prove the difference on my own?!

Well, if there’s any obvious difference between dating my current boyfriend and the previous ones, it’s actually the transparency about my vulnerability. The financial aspect, no matter how hard it is to admit it, is one of them.

I really want to act like I’m a strong, independent woman. But then there are times when I’m short on cash, especially a couple of months ago when my work was a little slower than usual. Last month, I had to borrow some money from my boyfriend.

If you don’t know me, you may think that shit like that occasionally happens in life. But if you know me personally, I suppose you know how embarrassing it could be for me. But hey, work has been quite busy again lately and I’ve paid back the money he loaned me. And it was my first time transferring money internationally from Indonesia. πŸ™‚

I figured it might be helpful if I could write something about it. And how I’ve found a very helpful platform to help me transferring money overseas from Indonesia, hassle-free. And not just from Indonesia, as Skrill provides international money transfer services from many other countries too.

May Day: Some International Workers Sharing Their Stories on International Workers’ Day

It’s May Day, so for those of you who could actually relate… Happy International Workers’ Day on the first of May! πŸ˜€

Anyway, I know some countries celebrate Labors’ Day on some other day, but in case you don’t know… May Day is dedicated to all workers. And it’s there to celebrate laborers and working class in general.

That’s why I initiated a collaboration with some fellow bloggers who are also workers with various backgrounds. With the world that is claimed as almost ‘borderless’ nowadays, so many workers have different stories about their job.

Some have to relocate and deal with culture shock for a bit. Some have to struggle with the art of commuting. Some probably have the luxury of working remotely with some different difficulties along the way too.

So, here I present you the stories of international workers on this very International Workers’ Day!
