    The Game of Dating

    The Game of Dating

    I hope you know CPR.. because you just took my breath away!
    Ahh.. dating. We’ve all experienced the ups and downs of dating. When you giggle like an idiot reading his texts, stay up way past midnight to talk to him on the phone, when life feels like a Drew Barrymore rom-com. That excitement of flirting with that cute guy you swiped right for, looking for excuses just to start a conversation with him, bringing him up in every conversation with your friends, that rush you feel when he first held your hand and kissed you…
    WAKE UP! WAKE UP!
    Kids, dating can be fun and dreamy, but they can also be disasters waiting to happen! Love is supposed to be easy, but the dating game can be more complicated than chess. In this episode, we talked about our journey to find McDreamy. We discussed the men we’ve dated, from horror stories to embarrassingly funny ones! We talked about dating etiquette, dating again after a break up, online dating, and what NOT to do on dates.
    Go on, you know you want to hit play.

    The Breakup

    The Breakup

    In this episode, two pills shared their breakup stories and how they survived the heartbreaks. We talked about the dumb things we have done to get attention from our exes, the social media stalking with our FBI friends, the find-myself self-reflection cliche, and the grieving process before moving on.
    Breakups are tough, but breaking up during a pandemic, HA! Can you imagine crying under the mask and gasping for air at the same time? Yes, you want to be the drama queen and cut your hair short, but guess what, hairdressers are closed! Food heals all wounds right? But no, restaurants are closed! You cant even travel anywhere!
    If you are going through a breakup during this already challenging time, you are not alone! We are here for you!

    How To Make Your Long Distance Relationship Work with Chee Wei Chen

    They say missing someone gets easier everyday because even though you are one day away from the last time you saw them, you are one day closer to the next time you will. Hmm…
    Even with the advancement of technology, long distance relationship is still no easy matter. It takes a lot of commitment and hard work. And not to mention, a heck load of trust. We feel you, sisters and brothers.
    We’d like to keep things interesting and introduce you to one of our dear friend, Chee Wei Chen (@cheeweichen) in this episode. She is a fellow Queen’s alum, hence we have known Chee Wei since our early university years. She has, also, throughout her university years and until now, been in a long distance relationship with her boyfriend. She has kindly agreed to join us in this episode to talk about how they have successfully thrived in a long distance relationship and are very much still in love (awww). She shared the highs and lows of her relationship and got very personal with us about the challenges she faced. Let’s just say.. she makes us believe in true love *heart eyes emoji*

    Episode 09 Adulting 101: What Is a Mortgage?

    Episode 09 Adulting 101: What Is a Mortgage?

    Adulting is tough. I know.
    You think it’s about time and you’re looking to buy a home now. You look at your bank account and ask yourself: Can you afford that? Are you going to cash buy? If the answer is no, then you are most likely going to need a mortgage.
    Following our last episode, two pills are going to give you some insights on what is a mortgage, what are the types of mortgage available and where you can seek professional advice. We also share with you our experience on getting a mortgage with the broker and solicitor. It’s not as difficult as you think it’d be, but it’s not straightforward either. Tune in this episode to find out more!

    Relationships, Comparing Ourselves to Our Boyfriends’ Ex, Our Love Languages

    Relationships, Comparing Ourselves to Our Boyfriends’ Ex, Our Love Languages

    We just boiled the kettle and the TEA IS HOT.

    If you’ve ever been in a relationship, you will agree with us when we say that it is hard. Don’t believe people who say it is easy, they’re lying to you. Relationship is hard work, it takes two people to be fully committed and willing to work for it to last. Yes, love is the foundation of our relationships, but you need more than just love to thrive in the relationship, not just survive. So what else do we need? Let’s find out!
