Let' s face it, I'm sure I'm not the only one who had a rough year. However, life doesn't end there. I am still thankful to everything that happened in 2016 because it helped me a lot in having a more positive outlook for the new year to come. 
Thankfully, I was able to see myself grow as a better person. I was able to improve a lot of aspects in my life, that I can say. I'm ready to close this book and a start a new one. Ready to let go of whatever the struggles were I went through in this book. Maybe I will go back to this book sometimes and just look through it to see how life treated me and molded me into who I am today. It's gonna be a new book with blank pages, and I'll make sure to write a bestseller! 
To officially end the year, here are some of my new year's resolution for 2017:
  1. GET INTO SHAPE. I know, I know, I've said this to myself over and over again. But this time I'm gonna work on it!
  2. PRACTICE GRATITUDE AND POSITIVITY. Let's all spread positivity!
  3. GET RID OF THE NEGATIVE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE. There's not enough space for them in my new year. 
  4. LEARN HOW TO FORGIVE MYSELF. This is something I find hard to do, but I will do it.
  5. TRUSTING MYSELF. Without the ability to trust, I can ever have enough control over my life to create the life I dream of.
  6. SPEND MORE TIME WITH MY FAMILY. I have to face the reality that one day I'm gonna live my own life and my family won't be in my life any longer. I don't wanna regret missing out on the moment's I could've spent with them.
  7. I WILL FOCUS MORE ON SIMPLICITY. As a rule of thumb, as long as less is both sufficient and efficient, less is more.
  8. BE HAPPY AND MAKE OTHERS HAPPY.  I learned I can never give what I do not have. That's why being happy should start within myself.
  9. READ MORE BOOKS. I find knowledge that I get from books are priceless. It expands my knowledge and helps me think logically.
  10. SPEND LESS TIME ON PETTY THINGS. There are plenty of worthy things to actually devote my time and energy to. I will ignore the petty things and go on with life.
.....And the list goes on, these are just the few important things I figured that would help me make most of my 2017. 
Before I bid goodbye to the last day of 2016, I want to thank all of you (my friends, followers, ghost readers, etc.) for sticking up with me the whole year. Thank you for taking time to read my blog. You guys are my inspiration and the reason why The Chubby Buddy exist. How about you? What are your New Year's Resolutions? I'd love to spare some time to read them! 
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!  Looking forward to more adventures!

Look Like A True Gentleman And Beat Back The Competition

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

You can think of the dating world as a sports field because that’s exactly what it is. If you want to score, by which I mean to secure a date, then you need to be ready to beat your competition. Don’t be fooled, there will always be a lot of people out there vying for the same partner. In fact, a recent report revealed that now when dating it’s common to juggle as many as seven partners. This puts a spin on the idea of a player when apparently everyone is playing the same game. It’s also important to realize that first impressions have become more vital than ever. Just look at Tinder as an example of this, one of the most popular apps for dating. Using this app, you swipe left or right depending on whether you like someone. That means someone is judging you entirely on how you look in your picture. So, it’s important to realize what women want in their partner, and I think I have the answer. It’s quite simple, they want a gentleman.

The Asian Trail For Foodies

Friday, December 09, 2016

The everyday routine is eating us alive: Sleep, work, eat, and start again. In such our fast paced agenda, it becomes difficult to experience peaceful breaks and to let food enlighten us instead of always relying on sugar to get the feel-good bonus. So you have decided to experience a different holiday this year: You’re heading to Asia to reconnect with yourself and take a break from your busy lifestyle. So this is a great point to introduce the idea that cultural holidays are not only for those who want to experience a country differently, but also for those who want to forget about their western knowledge about the country. They are also a great way to cut from your day-to-day stress and start taking a better care of yourself: Good food and exercise are on the list of every good foodie tourist!

Thursday, December 01, 2016

At some point in life, you may come at a crossroads while you decide what path to take moving forward. For many people, that tends to take place when they finish an element of their education. You might be wondering about further education or degrees, or even getting into the workplace. But what people tend to forget is that this decision doesn’t need to be made straight away. Often taking a year out to do something a little different could be the right decision for you.
