Ways to Express Your Love For Your Partner

We managed to find innovative ways to express our love to each other. It's a wonderful feeling to fall in love, nevertheless when you take things forward, you have to do a lot to keep that relationship steady. Oh yes! It’s a huge responsibility, but all you sincere lovebirds out there should certainly not brood over that fact.

A Short Break From Myself: What Last NYE Taught Me
There are times in our lives when we feel irrevocably tired of ourselves, and I think I have an explanation for this. Between all the toings and froings in life and the roles we play for our different cliques, there is too little time left to ponder which part of you is real. Admit it, none of us know who we are entirely. So, last year I made a decision that gave me a break from spiralling down through my tumultuous self. It was New Year’s Eve 2022 and I had just moved into Sydney. My work schedule was beyond me and I couldn’t help myself but take a break from the toxic environment that was nothing but harmful to my mental health. I decided to get away from the usual faces, which included my family, my friends and my colleagues. I booked a ticket aboard one of the Sydney NYE cruises, which are a famous vantage point to see the fireworks from a different perspective. It was remarkable indeed. With amazing food, a lot of booze, spectacular views, and not to mention, new faces, I knew I was at the right place at the moment. I met some wonderful people on board, all strangers. And here’s what I understood: that I didn’t have to assume a particular role or pressurise myself to be something I’m not when I’m around strangers. Rather I could be anyone I want to be or explore parts of myself with no strings attached to the reputed parts of my character. I guess I should add Sydney New Year’s Eve cruises to my favourites. They make me think.
Here is Sydney Served Sunny Side Up
Travelling to me is simply exciting. Meeting people from different walks of life, getting to try new cuisines, learning about different cultures etc. there’s nothing like it. Out of all the places I have travelled to, I must tell you, Sydney is one place that has caught my attention. Don’t take my word for it, experience to believe. No wonder, its rich multicultural heritage and pure culinary passion makes it the Flavour Capital of Australia.
How I Mastered Juggling Work & Private Life
Truth is, there’s a lot of stuff out there in the world that we take no notice of. I can go days and nights on advising you about work-life balance, but who’s interested in advice? I’m not. Instead we just want to know how to juggle both. Especially in the space of the past two years, this ‘balance’ has seen drastic changes. As a newbie in this culture, I have been able to stay motivated and balanced at the same time despite facing regular hurdles. How? I listened. To whom? Myself.
Winning Two Raffle Tickets: Who to Go With?
“What should I do if I win the lottery?” Almost half of the population have asked this at one point in their life. I mean, apart from saying ‘woohoo’, doing a backflip and double checking the numbers, I might be the most boring lottery winner ever. Nonetheless, I won a holiday raffle last week worth $3000 and now I can finally answer this question!
Top Places I Keep Returning To (2022 Edition)
As travellers we are obsessed with the idea of ‘new’. We visit those new towns or counties, have an amazing time, and refuse to return because there's so much else to do and see out there. Our bucket list gets longer over time even though we keep ticking them off! This… Need… to find new things or places is not bad, in fact, it was the original reason we started travelling in the first place. It makes sense that we’re in a constant search for new experiences but lately, this has got me thinking, there’s so much to be said about returning to the familiar.
