Don’t Own a Chicken if You’re Allergic to Eggs (and other ways to stop sabotaging your sanity)

BY RACHEL FREDERICK
@ VOL 14 ON AUG 27, 2015

Why do you agree to meaningless tasks that take up valuable time, cause stress, and accomplish little? You’re spreading yourself too thin and you’ll be burned out in 10 years (or less). Focus on yourself first; life balance will follow.

32 Months

BY FINAH YUSOF
@ VOL 6 ON DEC 19, 2015

“Hitchhiking is defined as travel by getting free lifts in passing vehicles. most people… would describe it as one way of getting yourself killed. I define it as the eye opening experience of seeing kindness in strangers.”

In 32 Months from PechaKucha Bandar Seri Begawan’s 6th Volume speaker Finah Yusof, founder of Gypsy Borneo, shares an amazing journey. A two month holiday to drink coffee and meet new friends ended up instead as an explosion of adventures and incredible encounters of human kindness in the span of thirty-two. Full of curiosity and the need to seek, her decision to continue traveling (or, really, hitchhiking) brought her experiences she never thought she would ever see and feel. She learned many things from how people are to how to survive to how to be what we all are… human.

Finah urged people to have trust and to drop their fears. To say "Yes" instead of hesitating. To be alive.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, February 29th, 2016.
