    100% Inspired

    Opposed to the normal #businessbossbish I’d be inspired by. This week I was enthralled by Beth Harmon, the chess prodigy orphan from The Queen’s Gambit. In this Netflix binger, Beth Harmon becomes the queen of chess, smashing it against her male opponents. All the while having tranquillizers and alcohol for breakfast, lunch and dinner (I just noticed the…

    Extending life with sirtuins, NMN, resveratrol and metformin

    I think everyone arrives at a stage past 30 when they realize life is quite precious, longevity is not a given and that we need to take care of our bodies & health (and for the Asians – also take care of your dad/mom/grandmom/grandfather and the rest of the extended family’s health).  So I’ve been watching (YouTube that…

Dropped out of college when she was 18, now running an underwear brand promoting inclusivity, body positivity and sustainability at its core. Struggles with a chronic illness. Comes from an immigrant background and realized that she (and we) live in a…

    The 6 most important graphs you will ever see

    Extracted from Steven Bartlett on Instagram. Steven runs his own media company, is known for creating a hoax around a football player that became worldwide news.

    No sleep = 1 pound per week

    Unlike most of the podcasts, Dr Mark Hyman records 10-minutes podcasts and videos with bite-sized content on health. In this episode, 3 doctors discuss how stress influences our behaviour and decision making. We all know it. But this serves as just another reminder 🔁. They discuss that being deprived of sleep will cause impulsive decision making, make you crave carbs and will get…

  • investing in REITS

    📈 If you don’t want to spend a fortune on buying real estate

    Then buy REITs. I momentarily forgot buying stocks isn’t “just buying parts of companies/raw materials”. Well actually it is, bút instead of your average Tesla/S&P500/Facebook stock, you can also invest in real estate. Tony reminded me again in one of his books to invest in REITS aka “Real Estate Investment Trusts” Bluntly: REITS are lower risk, lower work…

    Better “Bitch” than “Mouse” – RIP RBG

    IT WAS SO FRUSTRATING to only discover about RBG’s existence since this weekend.. yes I just crawled from under a rock, don’t judge 🙅🏻‍♀️. If you’re with me and didn’t know about her – here’s a quick summary of why we should’ve known about Ruth Bader Ginsburg already. Ruth was one of nine women in a Harvard class of 500+ men,…
