Dream Travel Destination – Africa

Usually people dream of traveling to the north, like Europe, USA, Australia, any posh capitalist country that has a high economic index.

How to travel alone – a guide for solo female travelers

My earliest solo travel memories was traveling from Laguna to Manila every school day at 11 years old. I woke up at 4am, then walk (yes, walk) 2 kilometers to the bus station, and hope to not be late for the flag ceremony at 6:30am. Eventually, the bus conductor knew me already as a regular […]

Book Review: iCon – Steve Jobs: The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business

This book is a cynical description of Steve Jobs. I grew up having him as an idol even if I despise the sky high prices of the product of his company. But they are successful in brainwashing people that buying Apple products makes you an elite and you can have the bragging rights to discriminate […]
