5 Cool Things About Toronto

Happy 150th, Canada!

Over a month ago, Hans and I went to New York for vacation. And since we were already in the East Coast of the mainland US, we planned to make a quick visit to Toronto, Canada. Might as well, right?

New York 2017 Trip Review

Two weeks ago, my partner and I had the privilege of travelling to the Big Apple. And let me tell you, we had a great time. And even better, we stayed under the budget. #Winning!

Of course, as always, the trip has been planned months before it even happened – six months to be exact. By planning ahead, we had a lot of time in our hands to sort out our options when it comes to our expenses – airfare, hotels, places to visit, etc., which then saved us money. Needless to say, I am already planning our trips for next year. You should give it a try, too.

4 Things to Consider When Buying a Health Insurance

In a perfect world, there would be no sickness and no accidents. There would be no need for a health insurance. It would be ideal, but we are not in a perfect world.

In the United States, under the Affordable Care Act (A.C.A.), or widely-known as Obamacare, every American is mandated to have a health insurance. If you can afford to pay a health insurance, and you don’t have one, you will be fined. As of 2016, the fine is $695 (if you haven’t had a health insurance in the entire year) or 2.5% of your household income, whichever is higher.
