Baby or no, is that your business?

For the first 20 odd years of my life, I've walked a predictable route.

I was drilled from young that, to succeed in life, I must study hard. I didn't study hard enough to get scholarships but it was passable. I walked the standard educational route, just like everyone else - passed my PSLE, passed my O Levels, went to JC and went to the local uni.

The next was to find a job, get a flat, get married.

And have a baby.

But in this common route, there is something unpredictable and out of my control i.e having a baby (and possibly getting a successful BTO ballot, though we can always go the resale route).

If you realise, in the left column of my blog lies some goals I set back in 2016. Of which, having a kid was set at 30....because I was guessing it would not be easy to hit the jackpot after hearing stories from others.

Ever since I got married, I've received irritating comments from colleagues who are not close to begin with, asking me when I'll be taking my maternity l…

4D3N Bali travel insurance for $12.05

I'm back! I finally had time for a short breather after days of overtime at night and weekends for work.

I've been complaining to my partner that I badly need a break. An overseas break. I needed to get away from the constant beeping on my phone and away from my work laptop. So, in between my daily commute and lunch breaks, I've been checking out deals for a short getaway.

My budget...below $500 for two for a 4d3n trip. With some luck, I managed to book my Bali trip at <$400 for air tickets and accommodation.

Next up was booking my travel insurance. I was comparing the premiums across the usual insurers when I came across Policypal which offers attractive discounts for travel insurances. On top of that, the incentives for booking through them was a $5 discount on the insurance premiums and 15% cashback!

At the time of blogging, MSIG Traveleasy and Sompo are running up to 60% and 45% discounts for their plans. In the end, I shortlisted Sompo where the initial premium was $17.05, but after applying the promo code of $5 off, I paid only $12.05.

To enjoy the $5 off, you may wish to key in UI0GU0LP when you checkout and I'll get a $5 credit for uber/grab. Do note the $5 off is only for your first insurance purchased via Policypal 😊

My experience from purchasing via Policypal was excellent. The platform was clean, instructions were clear and purchasing the travel plan was so fuss-free, it took me less than 5 minutes to complete the transaction👍

Right now, I'll just chiong at work and await for my Bali trip in a few months time!
