Travel Perspective

Our recent travel visiting ruins of the once great Khmer kingdom gave me not only memorable photos but more importantly, a valuable perspective.

...It made me realize that years from now, I will not remember the long hours I have put in in this project, but the time I took off from work to see places will be a lifetime memory that I will always cherish -- forever tucked away in some corner in my brain, hashtagged as "my happy place". 

...It's making me rethink that if I could live in a tiny 600 sq. feet hotel room for 5 straight months, then why do I feel like I need so much more back home?  Can I simplify my life so that I could retire early and spend the rest of my time traveling the world?  That will surely add a lot more "happy place" hashtags in my brain!

From now on, my mantra would be:
NOT Work Too Hard. Eat Well. Save Up. Retire Young. Travel Often!

Friends, this is how you make new friends, shopaholic-style. 

At dinner, trying to engage in some casual conversation with my newfound friend. 
New Friend:  So, do you like football or soccer?
Me: Hmm tough...   I really like shopping. 

Speaking of shopping, I should have bought this entire Narciso Rodriguez collection at Kohls! 
 Because it looks like this series has no end in sight!
