Indie Spotlight: Moonlighter

Any game that reminds me of Zelda in any shape or form will likely become a big hit in my books, and Moonlighter certainly gave a familiar vibe. When I first heard of Moonlighter, my interest was immediately peaked – shopkeeper by day, hero by night. Except in this game, the whole town knows who

Photo Challenge: September Through My Lens

Taking photos everyday is harder than I thought, especially on days I worked 10 hours. Even though I definitely didn’t manage to take an appropriate shot every day of my challenge, I tried to make up for it on days I had more time. I also didn’t post many photos on my Instagram, but now

Geek To Gladiator: August

A fitness challenge wouldn’t be complete with some speed humps and with flu season at its peak, I had to take a break after a week. Since I work in hospitality, this meant my step count was minimal and I practically put myself on house arrest because I didn’t want to infect all my fellow

Things That Defined My Childhood

Every generation has their own series of toys and characters that became obsessions during their childhood years. Your social ranking would be defined by your knowledge of a franchise or the size of your collection. These days it seems Fortnite and Ooshies reign supreme in the Australian ecosystem while my past was dotted with a

Geek To Gladiator: February

First of all, I managed to take almost no photos throughout February so I’ll be summing up my month with GIFs rather than #foodporn pics. Now that I’ve gone through my little disclaimer, I can get to the nitty-gritty. February was the first month of my challenge and, as some things go, it was equal

Life always seems to get in the way. Career, exercise, studying? Hobbies take a step back when you get caught up with the ‘important’ things in life and soon you find months passing by before you start investing in yourself again. Whether you just got home from work and find it’s easier to wind down

Adventure Awaits

When you’re scrolling through Instagram, it seems that all your friends and their cousins are travelling the world while you’re just happy that it’s warm enough to go for a swim at the beach. My social media feeds have recently received an upsurge in photos of Japan and inspired by my worldly friends, rather than

Journey Through The Hallyu Wave

Since the beginning of the Hallyu Wave in the 90s when K-Pop music and Korean dramas began to spread across Asia, their popularity continued to grow as social media allowed fans to share their interest on a global scale. This phenomenon has now reached a level I could never foresee with the boys of BTS breaking records

On A Rainy Day

Some days you wake up with dreams of outdoor adventures only to find Mother Nature has put a damper on your schemes with never-ending rain. As appealing as getting soaked after a couple of metres seems, using the rainy day excuse to stay in for the day might just be your best option. Now the

Virtual Playground, Real Life Lessons

Anyone who grew up in a family of non-gamers would understand the difficulty of convincing parents to drop their cash on the latest release (in their defence, they were pretty expensive) or trying not to roll your eyes when a relative mentioned how nice it was to see you away from the screen. For some,
