My Favourite Online Shopping Sites Under ShopBack

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.

There are over 300 online stores listed under ShopBack and here are my favorites. Let’s see if you shop on the same sites.  Continue reading My Favourite Online Shopping Sites Under ShopBack

Top 7 Highlights from Phnom Penh, Cambodia

This trip to Phnom Penh was a significant one because it was my birthday trip that I booked myself — first time booking plane tickets on my own! It’s significant also because most people who know Phnom Penh wouldn’t choose the place for a birthday destination; I knew nothing about this capital city of Cambodia when I booked the tickets in a flash during sales.

Once I learned about the gloomy history of Phnom Penh, I made effort to ensure I don’t ruin my birthday trip — I was determined to get the best out of this accidental destination.

It has been a week since my trip. Here are the top 7 highlights:

A Day at Hospital for Follow Up Consultation with Oncologist

I’m glad I wrote about how I felt 3 months ago when I went for my 2nd quarterly blood test post cancer treatment. Because I feel very different this time round.

I was excited to be back in the hospital for the check up. So excited that when an apologetic colleague called me when I was at the hospital, she commented that I sounded too upbeat for a person visiting a hospital. Continue reading A Day at Hospital for Follow Up Consultation with Oncologist

The Source of #sharestrength

I’ve been itching to write about something that comes to my mind every time someone says this to me when my Big-C story comes into the picture: “You’re so strong.”

Firstly, I’d take credit for that. Yes, I think I’m pretty strong for taking in Big-C into my life and walking out from the battle feeling like a completely normal human being who actually likes to brag a little about that adventure I went through.

Secondly, I’d like to give credit to the people and circumstances that I’ve been through to help put perspective to where the strength came from. Continue reading The Source of #sharestrength

Day Trip to Carey Island, Jugra, Banting & Jenjarom

RK and I sometimes like to go on road trips because he likes driving around while I like roaming around. It’s normally a day trip with on-the-go itinerary (read: no itinerary), like the ones we did to Malacca, Ipoh, Tanjung Sepat, Sekinchan and Bukit Tinggi. At the back of my mind, I’ve always wanted to visit the Mah Meri in Carey Island and we were finally persuaded to go after reading this full-day itinerary blog post on www.parentwonder.com.

We only missed one location in the reference itinerary and added our own along the way. It ended up being a day trip to Carey Island, Jugra, Banting and Jenjarom within 6 hours, excluding drive time to and fro home in Klang. Sounded a lot but some were really quick stops so it can be replicated easily.

An Open Letter to A Youth Cancer Fighter

Dear Mei Mei,

I’ve only met you a few times during World Vision volunteering experience. I doubt we exchanged more than 20 words but you left a great impression on me — a joyous individual who brightens not just the children and families you advocate for but the team that works with you towards the same cause.

There is no doubt that you are the sunshine everyone needs in life.

Top 5 YOLO Travel Moments

YOLO. You Only Live Once.

Tonight my mind wonders wildly because I’m about to embark on a YOLO trip willingly. I bought flight tickets to Taipei, Taiwan for two weeks from now! This is the most expensive flight ticket I ever bought. This is also the first time I’d be travelling solo. Too much anxiety. Also too much excitement.

As I think about this upcoming YOLO solo trip, I recall several YOLO moments and most of them happen to be from travel experiences.

#1 Climbing a 72m tree unprotected in Australia  Continue reading Top 5 YOLO Travel Moments
