Light, non-serious things related to living in Malaysia. May or may not be related to personal finance.
1.5 years ago, I switched from paid employment to self-employment. It’s been great. I have earned up to 4.8x my previous monthly salary.
My exercise journey also started more or less the same time. From the peak of my weight, I’ve lost about 28kg so far. I know BMI (Body Mass Index) isn’t the best indicator, but I’m finally in the ‘healthy’ range. As someone who has always been ‘the fat one’ since primary school, this is a pretty big achievement. I’m crazy proud of myself.
It can’t be a coincidence. I think exercising and healthier living choices did impact my career and income, for the better. This post is a jumble of self-reflection on this correlation.
Oh man. Oh man. What a book.

I’ve spent some money for RoR, and managed to earn some money from it as well. Blog monetisation in Malaysia is not a topic I see a lot, so I figure I’d share how it’s working for me with RoR. Here are the list of things I spent on for this website, as well sources of income that came with it.
It occurred to me that some of my friends probably don’t know what Malay people do at kampung during Raya. So I collated my Raya experience, hope you guys find this interesting! I know I get curious on what people do during Chinese New Year, Deepavali, and other festivities too 🙂 Let’s start from Day 0 – the day before Raya.
I talk to my Dad sometimes about financial stuff. For fun, I asked what amount people my age should be earning to be considered ‘doing financially well’. In short, what figure is a ‘good income’.
He said RM10-15k a month for single people, and people who have families need more. What.
Most of my traffic is organic (ie came from Uncle Google). I expected finance terms, sure, but I was also surprised by some search terms people use that end up here! I did not expect this for a finance website!
