Why It’s A Good Idea To Travel With Your Best Friend

Travelling is always a fun thing to do especially if you consider this one of your life passions and goals. But what makes travelling even more special is not necessarily the place but who you travel with. Choosing who you travel with says a lot about you and your relationship with that person. You wouldn’t normally want to travel with someone you don’t like in the same sense that you’d only want to travel with those you want to be with. Or else you’re better off alone.

Here are some reasons why it’s a good idea to travel with your best friend:

There’s the anticipation to a very memorable trip

The thought that you’ll be going on a trip adventure with your best friend can build up anticipation and excitement like no other. You’ve always had a great time with your best pal so this trip will only mean even more amazing time together. You can already imagine all the fun you’ll be having as well as all the laughter you’re both going to end up with. The thought alone already makes you smile.

There’s no boring time

Time spent with your best friend means talking over just about anything under the sun. This is someone you can share your honest opinion with without the fear of being judged or criticized. You can even talk about silly things as if they’re all that matters in the world. There’s also a long timeline to look back on to provide plenty of topics you can’t get enough talking of.

There are plenty of things you can do together

You two can be so much alike you even both agreed to go on this trip together. That means you’re both willing to create even more wonderful memories by doing a lot of new fun activities. These may be the realization of those things you’ve only dreamed and talked about when you were younger. Sitting on the street gutter together in grade school dreaming about how it’s like riding on a hot air balloon – and now you’re finally able to actually ride one!

There are more opportunities to learn together

Your best friend is someone you respect and believe in and this travel together may give you a lot of insights. The insights may help you get to know your best friend much better or in a different light and even help you get to know your own self further, too.

Why It’s A Bad Idea To Drive An Electric Car

A lot of Singaporeans are mulling over turning in their regular gas-powered cars to an electric car. Electric cars better alternatives whenever talking about the costs to the environment. Especially nowadays when climate change is such a hot issue aside from deeply felt by all corners of the world. When it comes to cost, you can also save more if you drive an electric car as compared to driving the gas-powered car. But electric cars also have their own limitations that deter a regular person from getting one. These are some of the reasons why it’s a bad idea to drive an electric car:

electric-car-cheapest

There’s not enough recharge points

There are only a few people who are driving an electric car so that means the demand is not that high yet. This also means the recharge points for these electric cars are still very limited. This is a top consideration since electric cars rely heavily on rechargeable batteries. You don’t want to run out of battery in the middle of the road knowing there’s no recharge point nearby unlike fuel stations that you can find even at the remotest places.

Electric Cars have shorter driving range and speed

These electric cars are still in their primary stage so a lot can and still need to be improved on. Electric cars can improve on their driving range and speed because they’re still very short-ranged as of now. They can only drive for about 50 to 100 miles before needing to be recharged again. They’re still not meant to be fast and furious either. So this may be a setback for drivers who value speed and need to travel long distances.

Electric Cars take a long time to recharge

Unlike dropping by at a nearby gas station to get your car fuelled which only takes a few minutes, recharging an electric car can be such a hassle. It would take you 4 to 6 hours before your batteries get fully charged up. This is a big blow especially for busy people or for those who are in a hurry.

Electric Cars are usually small

There are still fewer choices for electric cars and most of these choices are small cars that can only seat up to two people – and that’s the driver and a passenger. This also means smaller user potential for electric cars.

Electric Cars are not suitable everywhere

The limited supply for electricity in other places may still limit the availability of electric cars. An electric car’s need for power consumption may not be a particular government’s priority in contrast to the people’s daily needs.

Man-Made Paradises in Changi Airport

 

If you are the fun-seeking traveler, the time-bound business man or just simply the curious passenger caught in a lay-over in Changi Airport, you may as well enjoy yourself and check out the lush greenery just waiting there to be discovered by none other than you. Discover the world of the majestic metamorphosis of one of the most beautiful creatures ever created here on earth—the butterflies.

See them flap their wings for the very first time and capture this wonder-filled moment in the Mini-Eden discreetly placed in Changi Airport. A man-made paradise was created here in Changi Airport and for the record; this is the first Butterfly Garden in the world that was ever made in an airport.

There are over a thousand butterflies thriving in this garden. Different species of these lovely winged-creatures soar around in this haven which is full of flowers and plants especially planted for them to get the right nutrition that they need. The climate is also taken cared of so as to recreate a natural environment for the butterflies. Visitors are also reminded to be mindful of their actions in order to maintain the serenity surrounding the said garden.

Only a maximum of 30 visitors are accepted at a time to get an up-close and personal experience with the butterflies. It is rather sweet that the airport thought of showing to the world how nature and man can co-exist together without harming each other. The butterfly garden is just an icing on the cake because there are more gardens that you can check out in this airport than you can ever imagine.

Are you feeling rather blue although you may be in a crowd of people and you are quite confused on the endless free things you can avail in this huge airport? Well, why don’t you try to catch a glimpse of a ray of sunshine? It may help you cheer up and have a smile painted on your face.

This glimpse of sunshine is quite different from the daily dose of sunshine that we are familiar with. It is something that you can also touch with your very own hands. Yes, please proceed to Terminal 2 and be awed by the rays of sunshine embodied in the beautiful sunflowers which are actually grown and groomed at the edge of this very airport.

Wait there is also another garden that is worth your time. It is called the Enchanted Garden here in Changi Airport. Of course, you might be wondering why it is called that way, is that right?  I think you have guessed it right. It’s really enchanted because you will see it come to life.

The flowers will magically bloom right before your eyes and you will vividly hear the sound of nature with your very own ears. The best part in this Enchanted Garden is the massive stained glass molded in a bouquet-like shape and lit up in a magnificent brilliance which illuminates the entire garden. You won’t ever regret spending your precious time to check out these mini-heavens recreated on Earth only in Changi Airport.

10 Things You Can Learn from Chronically Ill People

 

I have diabetes. My condition requires constant monitoring and a considerable part of my income goes to my food and medication. It’s not all bad though. Living with a chronic health problem such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis or lupus could teach people valuable lessons like:

daughter caring sick elderly mother

  1. Everyone fighting their own battles. Not all health problems have visible signs. That apparently healthy man who parked at a space reserved for the disabled? Maybe he’s not really a jerk, but has a heart condition that makes him easily fatigued.

 

  1. It’s harder for some people to be happy. If you continuously have to worry about your health, all while silently bearing its painful effects, you’d find it harder to keep a smile on your face too.

 

  1. Don’t sweat the small stuff. People with a chronic illness have limited energies, so over time they become good at attending to their priorities. They make the most of what they have and don’t bother about things that don’t really matter.

 

  1. Special treatment is nice, but being normal is better. Sick people are treated more nicely and are often better accommodated. But do you know what would be better than that? Being treated like a normal person – honestly and without being patronized – and being able to do everything you need by yourself.

 

  1. Most people take their health for granted. The Singapore Government has a good system for taking care of the sick and those and need. But if you’re chronically ill, you realize this could be made even better, and you become an advocate for health insurance and healthy living.
  2. affordable-care-act

 

  1. You have to enjoy what you have. If your maintenance medication already takes a third of your monthly income, you spend more wisely and learn to be satisfied with what possessions you already have.

 

  1. Problems can make you a better person. It’s true: what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. (Or at least it’s true psychologically). Battling a chronic health problem makes us more resilient to setbacks because we’re used to life being an uphill battle. We can shrug off some problems that would devastate other people.

 

  1. Some days are just not for you. Healthy people can have bad hair days. Chronically ill people have bad all body days. When that happens, we just try to find comfort in the fact that things will be better tomorrow.

 

  1. We can teach you how to take care of your body. We’re a one-man information drive and awareness program of our respective conditions. We spend long periods of time consulting with health professionals and we pass on the knowledge we get from them to our family and friends.

 

  1. Life’s what you make of it. Any serious health problem or a disability will force you to reevaluate your life and how you want to experience it. Would you just mope around and feel sorry for yourself? Or would you keep on giving it your best and just be thankful for what you have?
