I had a lot of people ask me about the notebook I use as my bullet journal, and I remember mentioning what it is a couple of times in my previous blog posts. I swear by to this notebook and this by far is the best notebook or journal that I have ever purchased. (I have ordered the Leuchtturm 1917 notebooks on Amazon though, and I look forward to making a comparison blog post!)Read more
It’s been nearly a month since I stopped blogging yet again.
If any of you remember (or if you were even here 6 months ago), I stopped blogging for about 3 months this year. Add another month to that and I’ve stopped blogging for 4 months all in all. I just can’t seem to cope with all the stress that comes with blogging. Don’t get me wrong, I love writing. I really do.

Coffee is the sweet nectar of the gods that has been bestowed upon us undeserving humans. If there was a genie that gave me three wishes, I would wish for a portable coffee tap that contains infinite litres in my purse.
I internally cringe at people who say “I don’t like coffee” out loud because why would you want to suffer your life like this? Like mannn, here’s a self-care tip: have some of the damn coffee.Read more
Planners have evolved from being a simple planning tool to a hybrid planning scrapbook. Sure, there are still people out there who have never decorated their planners. But when I entered the planning world two years ago, I met groups of people who dedicate their time and money in making their planners look fancy. I became one of them and devoted an hour or so a day in sorting my weekly plans. Read more
Memes all over social media these days are mostly relating to being broke right after getting paid, and netizens are sharing them thousands, if not millions, of times across the internet. But the question is, how in the world do we not know where our money went?Read more
