Happy 3rd birthday, YQtravelling.com

It was YQtravelling.com’s third birthday on January 8. It slipped my mind so I’m making it up with this post.

The place where I got this cake went bust. :<

Like my past two birthday posts (first, second), I’ll recap some of the best posts of the year. It’s fun to see that the top 10 ranking is slightly different each year (even when not considering new posts).

13. 5 reasons you should quit your job to travel

  1. Hi! Ive been thinking about quitting my job and travelling the world and i stumbled upon your blog. Im born and bred in sg and its really rare to find a local who has the courage and is really serious to do this! I was just wondering how life is like for u afte you return from your travels. Do u find it hard to find a job? Cos im worried abt how my decision to travel will compromise work experience and career progression in the future. I would be in my late twenties wo any experience and that scares me. Any advice?? (:

    1. Hey Felicia, thanks for dropping by! When I came back, it took me about half a year before I found a new job. And the best part is, the new job (the current one) is my “dream job”.
      I’m also in my late-20s which is a very good time to travel because we’re still energetic.
      If you need any travel planning advice, drop me a mail at yqtravelling@gmail.com.

  2. Let’s go to the Nyonya cafe!! I want Laksa – extra hum please hahahaa. I just want to read more travel hacks, city guides… esp on food hahahaa.
