We are sisters, best friends, gossip partners and each other’s occasional psychiatrists. Both of us are career-focus and driven but we have made very difference choices in our private lives.
I (Karen) am a stubborn, pig-headed, career driven maniac Capricorn. Being the first-born, I have the honor and burden to manage our family finance from an early age. After spending over a decade in the banking world, I have perfected the art of financial controller and a proud budget sticker. I am also a doting mom of an equally stubborn, energetic, devilish and sometime lovable little girl who constantly keeps me on my toes.
I (Helen) is a cosmetic addict, fashion obsessed, light feet traveler, self-declared lifelong bachelorette, and loving auntie. However, I am also logical and a discipline finance professional (I think). Did I mention I am a Gemini? Yes, I still cannot decide if I want climb the corporate ladders for the rest of my working life or quits my job and be a free-spirit gypsy world-traveler. Like I said, am a true Gemini.
Like many women in this rapid changing world, we are constantly struggling with financial and life choices. Living in hustle and bushel of metropolitan city, we find it is tough to save for retirement, buy a home, travel and just have few lifestyle choices. On top of that, we both came to a realization that we are not always happy. The more money we earn, the harder life become and more stress we have. Exhausted by work, finance, and family stress, we both started to question did we make the right choice. What will make us happy and content? Do we have the right idea about what it means to be successful and what success means for each of us? So one night, after many glasses of Pinot Grigio and a long discussion, we decided to start this blog to share with other women our struggle and the journey to find a balance and blissful life.
