5 Things I'd Tell My Younger Self

 Officially 25!
Assuming I could live till the marvellous age of 75,
A third of my life has gone passed by and
I have two third left before turning into ashes.

Disclaimer: This post is 4 months overdue.

 

01 Nothing is permanent

Your hair, your skin, your best friend, your anything and everything will be different at every point in life. People come and go. Don't frown over the littlest things and don't take too much pride over success. Even tattoo fades.

02 There is no 'time-limit' for anything

Take your time. Go and grow at your own pace.
"Find a boyfriend at 18, get married at 25 and have 2 children by 28."
"Graduate from university at 22, find a job then get promoted every year and be a manager by 30." If you're a 90s child like me, you'll understand. I'm single at 25 and still learning how to fry an egg.

03 Set your eyes on the prize

"You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks"
I've only started focusing on my vision 3 years ago. My life and career has grown towards the better and is now in a different paradigm. I'd tell my younger self that losers focus on winners and winners focus on winning.

04 Create inner peace

Your peace is more important than driving yourself crazy trying to understand why something happened the way it did. Let it go. Most of you who know me in person would know that my life is a plateful. What you see is just a factor of the whole picture as things are way more challenging.

Growing up with signs of anxiety, feeling anxious was always mistaken as feeling nervous therefore nothing was done to help myself. As of now, I'm constantly making effort to inject 'peace' both internally & externally because a calm & clear set of mind changes the way we perceive life.

05 Be like a duck

Remain calm on the surface. Paddle like crazy underneath. Always.


 
Life is a learning process on it's own. Wherever you are in life, I hope you are having fun :)

Inspirational Monday

Waste my gas, I'll fill up.
Waste my money, I'll work. 
Waste my food, I'll go grocery shopping. 
But DON'T waste my time, I can't get that back.

VACATION Packing TIPS + ESSENTIALS

EXCUSE MY VPL...


ngày lễ = VACATION


IF you are planning for a short getaway to somewhere within the South East Asia region and also bank account friendly, I'd say go to Vietnam for a fuss proof holiday destination. 

WE felt it was time to head back to Vietnam so we booked ourselves a 5 days trip to Saigon. The whole trip [Flight + Hotel] cost approximately RM850/person. Haven't shared anything on our recent trip to Vietnam but be assured that it's coming your way.

ASIDE from being coffee tipsy, we did put some effort on how we dressed. Not being a self-proclaimed professional but deciding on what to wear on a holiday can be strategically challenging. Make the smart move and you'll "POP" in every single picture taken. Since its VIETNAM, I played with muted tones, tribal prints, beachy hair and fun footwear. doyoufeelthosepomspoms. 

QUICK TIPs before packing:
.01 Do some research on the destination. What colour scheme and tone most of the landmarks are.
.02 Explore google image to get an idea on the cultural aspect of your destination.
.03 Visit fashion websites for holiday outfit inspirations and style ideas. [StyleWe is a great one to check out!]
.04 Search latest hashtags on Instagram for updates or a glance on the real-life situation.
Aside from rolling our clothes and packing travel sized toiletries, there is more to learn when it comes to packing smart.
These are our vacation essentials:
. Kimono . Bikini . Shorts . Hat . Sunnies . Sandals .
 
 
 
Just if you're wondering why is that black pair of loafers in the mix, I've never travelled anywhere without a pair of statement kicks.
Airport essential. Checked!!
