As we get older, we stop worrying about the little things. But it seems that now, as we get older, the biggest issue hanging over our heads is always the finances. Some people struggle to live the life they want, and when we start to think about what it takes to be happier, it is not just to do with ensuring we live a certain lifestyle, but it is about guaranteeing that we look at life differently. Sometimes, it is about a combination of the practical and the positive.


The Benefits of Passive Income

As we get older, and we realize that we're not earning a certain amount of money, it could benefit us to diversify our earning potential. This means that we could take a freelance job, as many people do these days, but also start to invest in currencies like crypto. These days, a cheap way to buy crypto would be to go to one of the many web providers. And it seems that now, especially when it comes to stocks and shares, it is the perfect way to top-up our earnings. If you are looking for other approaches in terms of passive income, you could start a blog or an online store. If you've got specific skills, you could create a course.


Finding Ways To Nurture Your Current Relationships

If you are struggling to get by, especially with a lack of finances, you may want to start thinking about the relationships you have. If you want to be happy, you've got to start spending time more with the people you love. It is going to help you during times of stress. And going one step further, when you start to think about the things that are really important in life, you may get the balance right despite insufficient earnings. A good way to think about it is to employ a minimalist approach. Living a minimalist lifestyle is something that many people are choosing to do these days, because of the realization that “stuff” doesn't make them happy. And you can do this in many ways, but be sure to gradually reduce personal possessions, because each little downsizing gives you the chance to take it all in, and how happier you are. You might very well find you are happier with fewer items than more.


Tackle Your Dreams

Learning to live in the current climate, and with the lack of finances can be overwhelming. It can be downright depressing. And this means that when we are stuck in an emotional rut, we have to start thinking about the things that matter. One of the most important things that anybody can learn is to avoid regrets. Partly, you can avoid making mistakes in the future, but also, learning to forgive yourself is going to give you the permission to go in the right direction.


Whether it is looking at investments or making changes to your current living situation, being positive will help infinitely. But these days, it is not just about evoking a positive mindset, there have to be some practical elements as well.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band...

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
