When I first created this blog, the sole purpose I carried with me was to document my travels with Koon.
The first time we travelled to Japan in 2015 on a free & easy self-planned schedule, I had a lot of friends asking me for the itinerary. Over that period, the itinerary was sent to more than 20 friends and I think that was quite a substantial number that turned into a push-factor for me to start documenting my travels, in hopes to help others with their planning too.
Both of us love traveling and that explains #kctravelogue
In Year 2015, we travelled almost every 2.5 months and I think that was pretty hectic (and spontaneous), considering that both of us just graduated, barely had any savings, were still servicing our study loan and are holding a full time 9-5 job. People around us were always asking how we do that, and more importantly how we have the money to do it.
Amidst all the travel postings, I knew at the back of my mind there’s always something MORE that I want to do. And since money is always the center of topics, I thought of sharing some financial habits that could help others in their every day lives and inevitably to all aspects of their life.
Sadly...every time I want to get started, I get held back. I would start questioning myself; who are you? What makes you think that people would be interested to know? Or hear about what you have to share? You’re not a financial planner, what makes you think that bla bla bla bla. You see, so much was going through my head.
Turning a quarter life old this year made me realized a number of things and I figured it’s time that I start living proper for myself and care less about what others think. Negative comments will only get into you if you allow them to.
I should start writing what I feel like sharing and anything I think it’s useful. Even if it’s useful for just 1 human in this entire world, I would still be happy because I managed to help this one person. If there’s more, great. But if there’s none? I think it doesn’t matter. What matters most is that the person doing it - me - feels happy to share and do not expect anything in return.
I’m planning to start a series of #goodthingsmustshare on a variety of topics and perhaps this space will no longer be centered only on Travel. There’s so many things going on in my life right now and so much life experiences to share. Happy things of course, like our new house renovation and wedding that’s coming up!
Going through this phase of life feels like a ultra bump to adulthood. Wonder if my 90s homies feel the same ;)
