5 Secret Items To Bring On Your Next Romantic Getaway

 

I have heard horror stories about how sex life after kids is almost non-existent especially when you have more than one. And if you are getting your sexy fix weekly, then you are considered one of the lucky ones because there are some couples who seem to manage by with monthly sex or even quarterly sex. While I understand that some couples are both fine with having lesser sex, it can be frustrating if there is a mismatch in libido.

Well, things do not have to be this way, as I believe that sex is a healthy and natural part of marriage. Sex isn’t just about getting physical but it is also about being intimate and connecting with your spouse.

Besides rushing through five minutes quickies while the children are watching their favourite cartoon on TV, why not make an effort to rekindle that romance by planning a trip sans the kids. Even just a simple staycation would be a good break from the children.

Supermarket Hauls From Batam

 

So I went on a short 2 days 1 night getaway to Batam last week. When I plan a trip down there, I would just do the usuals which included eating at A&Ws and getting a massage. If you ask me about the shopping, I would tell you that there is nothing much to get over there. The more popular mall which is at Nagoya Hill is full of stores selling counterfeit products. Then my girlfriend told me to check out the supermarkets instead. And I could not believe myself, as a self-proclaimed bargain hunter who sweeps shelves in supermarkets in Johor Bahru, how could I totally not think of this!?

Unfortunately due to bad planning, we reached Batam in time for our massage and after that it was a race against time to grab dinner and do a little shopping. I had only managed to hit the supermarket the next day before leaving for Singapore. Guess what were my hauls?

Tips For A Successful Internship

 

Finding a job can be a tough challenge especially if you do not have any experience. And yet to gain experience, one must first find a job. You may have a (good) degree but what are your options if that alone does not do much to differentiate you from your competitors? This is where internships and part time jobs for students play an important role in your career path. Internships allow you to gain valuable work experience, get a grounded feel of the industry and get noticed by employers seeking top talents.

My one and only internship was during my final year in Polytechnic where I was assigned to an IT department of a local firm and required to code in a programming language which I would only be taught in the next semester. Needless to say, it was a nightmare and dreadful experience. Looking back, I wished that I had the resources, knowledge and opportunity to find an internship, which was better suited for my skill set. Nevertheless, it was a learning experience for me.

There were things I wished that I had done differently to experience a more fulfilling internship experience. Here are some tips, which I would like to share for a successful internship.

My Short Getaway!

Over the weekend, I took a short getaway to Batam with the hubs. It was quite impromptu & booked late Dec. Anyway, I guess it could be sort of like an advance birthday celebration since it’s just round the corner. I’d booked a hotel at Harris Waterfront for around S$70+ but silly me went to book ferry tickets to Batam Centre terminal instead of the Waterfront terminal. It made no sense to have to travel another 30mins from Batam centre ferry terminal to the Waterfront hotel. So I had to waste an additional S$50+ more to cancel the Waterfront hotel and book the one at Harris Batam Centre instead.

The last time I went to Batam was 8 freaking years ago! But I guess nothing much has changed. Our hotel, the Harris Batam Centre, was located just 200 meters away from the ferry terminal and that made it very convenient. Continue reading

Our RW Sentosa Staycation

We had a short staycation because I needed a break and yet we were not prepared to travel in a plane with Asher yet. Probably gonna wait till he grows older before we bring him somewhere kid-friendly. I have been starved of a vacation for 2 years already. I still remember buying those Uggs-inspired boots for a supposed cold climate trip only to find out that I was pregnant. And since then, I wasn’t encouraged to travel anywhere, Batam included.
