Three months ago when I welcomed 2020, I knew I’d be going into unemployment soon because I’ve decided to take a career break. When March came, I excitedly started my “housewife” life, not knowing that just two weeks in, a lot of people would be staying home like (and unlike) me.
This Movement Control Order (MCO) that started in mid-March caused turbulence in everyone’s lives. No one is spared — young, old, rich, poor, healthy, unhealthy, employed, unemployed, self-employed, etc.
But during the recent Chinese New Year, I realized that when both are put together, it may be quite an emo thing for a wife or wife-to-be. It was my last Chinese New Year celebrating it like I know it since I was born!
This book has been on my wishlist for a while because I like to read bestsellers. I’m aware of a couple of friends who read and recommended the book. I’m also intrigued by the 4.5 star rating on Google Play Books.

Have you heard about ShopBack? I don’t remember how I first came across the site but I remember telling friends and family about it years back and everyone has been delightfully sticking to the site when it comes to online shopping. Me included.
If you’ve never heard of ShopBack, it’s a site that offers cashback when you shop online via its referral link. Yes, just click to the site you want to shop on from ShopBack’s link and you get cashback for purchases made!
It’s legit. It’s been around for a couple of years now. I’ve cashed out from the site without a fuss. It’s very simple to use. You just have to remember using it whenever you shop from online stores listed on ShopBack.
