Don’t do it. All you’ll see in south east Asia are westerners..you might as well chill here instead.

What?... I mean, places like Bali, Bangkok, and Singapore are crawling with westerners, but I don't see why that should stop someone from going.

Vietnam: Hanoi + Halong Bay, Danang + Hue + Hoi An, if you still have time then Sapa
Philippines: Boracay, Cebu, Palawan
Malaysia: Penang, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu
Thailand (beyond beaches): Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Khao Sok
Indonesia: Bali (Ubud), Bromo, Borobudur, Gili, Raja Ampat

I went backpacking in Indonesia’s for a month. Highly recommend it. I spent most of my time on the islands of Java and Bali.

Any better sleep advice? My husband can’t fall asleep in bed, quickly becoming restless. He can pass out snoring on a couch, in a car, on a plane, but not a bed. He’s tried meditating, using pillows, and teas without any luck. It’s really tough when we travel in hotels and he will sometimes go a full night just laying there with no zzz’s to be found. Has anyone experienced this?
Sincerely,
Sleepless in…well, everywhere

I've just recently been hired as an assistant manager at a Canadian outlet store. It's a small company in comparison to others, but there are over 10 locations spanning western Canada and NW united states. I'm curious as to what others in a similar position are getting as salary. I was offered $42k plus bonuses at the interview, but when called back I was offered $44.5k plus bonuses. I already accepted. Did I leave money on the table here?

I start stims in July and am likely to have to travel during the 2 weeks on stims leading up to egg retrieval - is it easy to fly with all the medication or is it just not worth it because you feel so bad & hard to predict when the retrieval will need to be? I have PCOS and v high risk for OHSS if that’s relevant. Also - how far before stims did you stop drinking? Thank you!

Any thoughts on how to transition from tech startup to corporate development roles? I started at B4 leading digital transformations and now work at a tech startup. I see CD roles focused less on modeling and more on ops excellence which feels like my sweetspot. Also interested in joining a startup spinout from a CD dept. I've heard of these roles at large hedge funds, banks, pharma, but don't know what to look for or how to find these roles outside of joining headhunter networks. Any tips?
