The Most Epic Babymoon
“Is this a good time? Are you sitting down?” I took a deep breath. I was sitting down, the bus ride was bumpy and long, and I had been expecting the call. In fact, I already knew what the news was going to be even before the nurse on the other end said a single word. “Shoot.” “Congratulations, it’s positive!” My brain couldn’t compute. “I’m sorry, I’m having trouble processing what you’re saying. Can you say that again?” “Your blood test result was positive. You’re pregnant!” If I’d been drinking coffee at that moment, I would have done a genuine […]
Let’s Go Exploring! Hobbiton and Auckland, New Zealand: Fangirling over the Lord of the Rings
“My PRECIOUSssss…” I whispered, clutching the Hobbiton map to my chest as our tour bus rolled through the lush green hills of New Zealand, straight to the Shire. Ever since watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy way back in my college days (its epic 3 hour length was perfect for procrastinating from exam studying), I dreamt of going to New Zealand. There were two things I lusted over back then: Legolas’s sexy flowing blond mane and the dramatic snow-covered mountain peaks of New Zealand, where the movie was filmed. What I wouldn’t have given to sit inside a hobbit […]
Are Millennials the New Boomers?
I never thought I’d say this, but are Millennials the new Boomers? 8 years ago when I started this blog, Boomers were the ones telling us that avocado toast was the reason we couldn’t afford to buy a house and that our lazy, entitled selfies and social media obsession were killing our work ethic and the reason our jobs were unstable. This led to viral trend of exasperated Millennials rolling our eyes and responding with “OK Boomer”. But now, it’s us who are complaining about Gen Z. Now that Millennials like me have reached our late 30s and early 40s, […]
Let’s Go Exploring! Sydney, Australia: Worth all the Hype?
When your flight attendant friend tells you Sydney is their favourite city in the world, you pay attention. Having flown around the world for work for the past 18 years, it takes a lot to impress Clover. So of course, I had to go to Sydney to find out what all the hype was about. I’m usually skeptical about well-known travel destinations because my brain can’t fathom how it could possibly exceed my expectations when so many have been there before and there’s so much hype. This was the case for Machu Picchu but it still blew my mind. I […]
Lazy Girl Jobs: Gen Z’s alternative to Financial Independence?
Now that I’m an elderly Millennial, I’m no longer cool enough to start trends or incite revolutions. All my pop culture references are “cheugy”, my beloved Harry Potter books are “for old people”, and my Instagram account is so 2019. So now I have no choice but to look to Gen Z for inspiration when it comes to trends. And the newest one trending on TikTok, with 17 million uses, is the #lazygirljob. Being the ignorant Millennial that I am and not being on TikTok (sorry China, you’re not stealing my data), I had to go down the online rabbit […]
