Some Tools and Resources I’ve Been Using to Work From Home

Recently, I made a poll about whether I should write about my everyday life or tools and resources I’ve been using to work from home… The latter got 69% vote, and I swear the number wasn’t like that on purpose. LOL.

Because of this, I’ve compiled a list of tools and platforms that are helpful for me since the first day of my work-from-home journey. Mind you, some of the platforms I’ve been using might also be the regular thing in your everyday life. But then again, maybe you didn’t know how to leverage it into a few bucks for some extra cash.

So I guess this post is here. Just a heads up though, I’m not so good at making a tutorial like a career coach or whatever. But I suppose I’m not so bad at explaining things for dummies. If you’re here, then I hope you’re a dummy that is looking forward to your betterment in some way. And moreover, hope this would help you too… Here we go!

My First Impressions of Bali Based on the First (And Most Likely the Last) Visit to the Land of Gods

Hello everyone, how is everything going?!

So, after my last post of Kertajati International Airport, I had a bit of a hard time to decide what kind of post I needed to write on. Obviously, it’s supposed to be something about Bali. But then I couldn’t figure out which one I should write first.

At first, I was about to write a review of the first hotel we stayed in Bali. However, since the last piece that I wrote was also a review of the airport, I decided that the hotel review could wait. Instead, I want to share with you some of the first impressions I’ve got in Bali on my first time visiting the land of gods.

To be fair, now that I’ve been there, I’m hesitant to go back there again since I kinda feel like it’s not really the most favorite place I’ve got in the world. But why? Does it have anything to do with the first impression that I’ve got? Well, let’s check this out!

Hit or Miss: Things to Do (and Skip) Around Dieng Plateau, Central Java

So guys, I’ve got one confession to make… It is the fact that I tend to get lazier to collect sources for content creation when I don’t travel alone. Especially when I travel with my family.

And that, my friends, is the reason why I just got back to update my travelogue about my trip to Dieng last month.┬áIt’s not like I’ve been quite busy lately, because if anything… Work has been a little slow lately.

Anyway, so I gotta admit that I just noticed I’ve got a few pictures from my trip to Dieng in my camera and phone. I don’t know about you, but there are certainly some places or situations that could make you feel indifferent about taking pics and whatnot. And that was Dieng for me. And Bali. But we’ll talk about this later.

Well, after I reviewed the homestay where we stayed in Dieng, in this post we’re not gonna just talk about the things to do in Dieng. But also, we’re gonna cover some things you could just skip if you’re not that ambitious to visit all places that those influencers tell you to stop by. *LOL*

Some Things I’ve Learned From My First Family Travel as an Adult

As you might already know, I just recently finished my trip to Dieng and Bali with my family. That was my first family travel as an adult. I mean, I traveled with just my Mom and my brother, and without my Dad and my sister but still…

For those who don’t know about me and my family background, it’s fair to say that we’re not much of travelers as a family. I remember when we were kids, I always complained about how I wanted to travel somewhere else for a vacation. The reason being was that our teacher usually asked to write our vacation story when we were back to school. And I got tired of writing about my Grandma’s house because that was probably the only place we usually went to for the school break.

Looking back, I guess it was the reason why travel bugs bit me more than anything else. I simply just want to see more parts of the world because I didn’t get a chance to do it. The other thing, I suppose it also has something to do with my Dad being the kind of person who’s more comfortable to stay at home.

The older I get, the more I understand the whys. However, above all the things, I came to understand that Mom is pretty much like me. She likes to do new things, exploring places is her favorite, etc. One of the many reasons why we asked her whether she’d join us to Dieng and Bali. In which she said yes without any hesitation.

Girls’ Day (and Night) Out: How to Spend Quality Time with Your Mom as Adults

After our last staycation at Savoy Homann Hotel a couple of months ago, I recently just finished yet another staycation at another hotel in town. Again, my mom tagged along. This time, I planned out a visit to the new selfie spot in town with her.

As I uploaded a pic of me on Instagram, taken by my mom there, to my surprise I got some messages from my friends who somewhat got inspired to take their mom out too. They asked me what I usually did during the staycation. How to keep my mom entertained, etc.

Well, thanks to those messages because now I’m also inspired to create this article. Some content to give you an idea on what you could do to spend quality time with your mom now that you’re both adults.
