    Should You Save More or Earn More?

    The save more or earn more dilemma is one of the biggest questions in the personal finance world. It’s up there with “should you invest in a Traditional IRA or a Roth IRA?” I was originally planning on naming this post, “Why Having More Isn’t Enough,” which makes it pretty obvious where I stand on this issue. If you aren’t familiar with the save more or earn more dilemma, it is whether you should prioritize saving more of your income or earning more money. There are merits to both sides but I think at its core, it’s more important to save more of your income. Save More vs Earn More…

    7 of the Best Experiences in London

    I love cities that have a ton of history. So naturally, London was at the top of my list of places to visit. When I found a travel deal to London in December 2016, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. Fast forward 4 months, my friend and I are on the 11-hour flight to London. I’m not going to lie…the flight was awful. But I’m not here to give a negative review for the flight. The point of this post is to share my most memorable moments in London. December is one of the peak travel seasons for London. The flight was crowded, the streets were crowded, and just about everywhere…

    3 Credit Cards You Need in Your Wallet

    Credit cards can either be your best friend or worst nightmare. When used wisely, credit cards can help build your credit score, increase your spending power through points/miles, and provide extra benefits. On the other hand, if you abuse this power, you could be drowned in an ocean of debt. Yet, I’m shocked whenever financial experts advise people not to have credit cards without telling the full story. I’m a huge fan of credit cards. They provide amazing benefits that help me take my travel-game to the next level. Before I tell you the 3 credit cards you need in your wallet, I need to go over some reasons why…

    A Day at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka

    If you’ve never been to Japan, then just stop everything right now and go! I’m joking…but it should definitely be on your bucket list. Japan is an amazing country that is completely different from anywhere you’ve ever been before. The first time I went to Japan as an adult, I lived there for 5 months and it blew my mind. It was totally different from what I had imagined. I have so much to say about Japan, but this post is about Universal Studios Japan in Osaka. Dare I say it’s better than the Orlando and Hollywood locations? Let’s just say it’s different. In the process of doing research for…

    Not Investing? Big Mistake.

    If you aren’t investing your savings, then you are making a huge mistake. I know this because I was making the same mistake two years ago. I, like some of you, saw the downfall of my parent’s investments during the Dot Com Bubble, and more recently, the Financial Crisis of 2008. At that time, I told myself that I was never going to invest in the stock market. It seemed like such an unnecessary and horrible gamble to make. What I learned two years ago completely changed my perspective on investing. If you aren’t investing correctly, then it will more than likely ruin your life. Now, that definitely might not be…

    Tastes of Taiwan: 5 Must-Try Restaurants in Taipei

    Tastes of Taiwan will be a series of posts about the best food spots in Taiwan, and I’ll be kicking it off with some of my favorite restaurants in Taipei. You can look forward to future snack, dessert, and drink recommendations as well as future series that will cover my favorite travel destinations. Let’s get right to it! Taiwan, in my opinion, has the best food in the world. It’s so good that I would hop on a 12-hour flight just to spend a week eating there. To be honest, that’s exactly what I do. It’s pretty much impossible to try everything Taipei has to offer but to give you the…
