Do you have a debt anchor around your neck?

Some people are scared of debt. Yet, some people aren’t scared of it. Perhaps debt can be the first step in our investments. On the other hand, debt can limit our chances of investments. We can’t describe exactly debt as either a good thing or a bad thing. It depends on how we manage our debt.

The dark side of the white snow

After saying Good-Bye to the winter, the spring is ready to fulfill the color of nature. In such a circumstance, I would like to express my full experience of the snow.

Snowfall is an amazing thing in nature. Let’s say, for those of us who were born and lived in a tropical country, the experience of snow is a dream. Once I told you about my first experience with snow.

A short story

She was surrounded by many cameramen from various newspapers and TV channels. “Masha! Masha!” her fans shouted her name. She could not go one step further without the help of the bodyguards. Some of her fans tried to get her autograph, while others came up to her to take selfies with her.

Despite the hassle of the crowd, she faced every camera as she can. All of a sudden, she flashed her eyes because of the powerful flashlight of a camera. The next minute when she opened her eyes, she only saw the floral printed ceiling in her bedroom. …
