[Hotel Review] Four Points by Sheraton Chinatown 2D1N Staycation

Chinatown Kuala Lumpur has garnered some hype on social media for the revamping of Kwai Chai Hong and the emergence of many bars, cafes and traditional-turned-modern eateries built into the historical shoplots. It is in reminiscent of what Penang has done with Georgetown and it's certainly a step in the right direction to preserve the charms of the area. Weekends often sees swamps of visitors taking to the streets to check out the alley and instagrammable cafes in the area. 


And swiftly becoming an easy identifiable landmark in Chinatown is Four Points by Sheraton Chinatown. I recently enjoyed a staycation at the hotel thanks to Triumph Malaysia and the first thought that came to mind was...I can check out the bars in the area and just head back to my room after! Better yet, I can just roll out of bed and check out the morning scene of Chinatown.

Discovery Channel's Shark Week 2020 Featuring “Fintastic” Shark Edutainment And Hollywood Celebrities

I will confess, I have an unexplained fascination with sharks. Granted, I have never got diving or cage diving before to see one of them upclose but have spiralled into the black hole of shark videos on Youtube. Bonus points if the videos are about huge ass megaladons. 

Which is why I am excited that Shark Week is back. For its 32nd year running with bigger sharks and breathtaking breaches from Monday, 31 August to Sunday, 6 September, Shark Week 2020’s “fincredible” lineup will deliver magnificent shark stories and celebrate the 20th anniversary of ‘Air Jaws’.

[Hotel Review] OYO RG Heritage Boutique Hotel, Penang

If there is one tip I will given you when in Penang, is stay in a heritage hotel. Trust me. It's quite an experience being able to appreciate the architecture and design of these old shoplots or house turned accommodation. These hotels are also often more affordable and strategically located within proximity of the good food that Penang is known for. 

Case in point: my recent stay at OYO RG Heritage Boutique Hotel.

[App Review] Booking a car on Trevo for a Penang Roadtrip

Did you know that 90% of a car's lifetime is spent parked? Go to work, park car. Go home, park car. Go to shopping mall, paktor and park car. Does getting stuck in traffic jam count as parked? 

Basically, despite all our ride-sharing and public transportation options, Malaysians still love owning their own car (or in some cases, cars) but with the price of convenience, comes the price of literally watching your cash burn away. Every car owner should know that cars do not appreciate in value. 

But what if there was a way for your car to pay itself off? That's where Trevo comes in. To put it simply, it's like Airbnb for cars. If you have a car just sitting in your house, you can put it up on Trevo to be booked by a guest in need of a car. Guests, like myself when I needed a sedan car for my road trip to Penang.

6 Products from Earth Home for a Pest-Free House

Like most households in Malaysia, my bedroom is no stranger to having the occasional cockroach and lizard make an appearance. This, of course, has me rolling up whatever newspaper I have at hand to whack the crap out of the roach. 

Or in the case of a lizard...me screaming from the room and refusing to go back inside for a couple of hours. Yes, I loathed lizards that much and having cats doesn't help.

Fukuoka, Kyushu [Day 5 Part 3] - Half Day in Itoshima

Phew, I am finally on part 3 of day 5.

To recap, I spent my morning exploring some parts of Nagasaki and then drove to Takeo, Saga to visit the Teamlab Borderless exhibition in Mifuneyama Hotel and the gardens. Our final stop before Fukuoka was Itoshima, a lazy seaside town an hour's drive away. The journey to get there from Takeo had us heading off the main highway and into the countryside, alongside clean rivers, mountain passes and some of the steepest and loopiest overhead roads ever to be installed into the side of a mountain. Definitely one of the most memorable drives of that trip - the other being the near zero visibility driving down Mount Aso.

My Bedroom Makeover: Trashbin to Green Haven

If there was one good outcome from MCO for it, it would be that it finally kicked my ass into gear to do a total bedroom revamp/makeover. During lockdown, I found myself spending a lot of time in my bedroom as I was working from home. On top of that, I was playing a lot of Sims 4 which had my wannabe interior designer juice flowing.

Food Review: Tealive x Walls Bobalicious Ice Cream - Genius or Meh?

Who here is as crazy about Boba tea as I am? While the boba craze may have come and gone and come and gone again, I will always say that Tealive is easily one of my go-to bubble tea brands. It's certainly more reasonable than many boba brands and easily available in malls and at petrol stations.

So when it was announced that Tealive would be collaborating with my childhood ice-cream brand, Walls, of course I couldn't resist heading out to the nearest 7-Eleven to buy a stick or two...or four of the new Walls x Tealive Bobalicious ice-cream.

Adventure awaits us in Malaysia's Backyard with Sedunia Travel

The final day has finally arrived when the government has opened up interstate travelling to Malaysia. While it still means I can't go back to my Kampung aka Japan, it does open up the country for economic recovery and an opportunity for people to explore their own country aka their own backyard.
Why travel so far when we have stunning pristine beaches just a quick drive or flight away? Hm, I might just hop on a flight to Kuching to get my fill of Sarawak Laksa. But with a limited budget and leave days, a weekend trip seems like a better idea for now. Ready to take Malaysians on an adventure with the introduction of their domestic travel campaign, In MY Backyard, Sedunia Travel has a plethora of local travel packages that showcases the beauty and appeal of our very own country.

5 reasons why you should rent a bicycle the next time you travel

I think one of my best memories of travelling was the time I cycled 21km around Kyoto on a rented bike. I cycled from my hostel (Hana Hostel) near Kyoto Station to the Imperial Palace where we took a free tour in English then onto Kitano Temangu Shrine for their monthly bazaar and then to the Golden Pavillion. It was perhaps the most memorable day of that entire trip. 

So if anyone were to ask me if they should cycle, walk or rent a car to explore a place, I would say - just cycle. You get the best experience of walking and being on two wheels.

Saga, Kyushu [Day 5 Part 2] - teamLab Borderless at Mifuneyama Rakuen

Welcome to Day 5 of my journey through Kyushu...part 2.

I must say I do wished that I had spent more time in Nagasaki. The city had a charm of its own - a blend between Western and Japan, further made more sobering by the bombing. As we departed to head to Fukuoka, I told myself I would come back to explore more. My drive on this day would take us from Nagasaki to Takeo city in Saga Prefecture followed by a half day trip to Itoshima and finally to Fukuoka to check in at our hostel, the Life Hostel and Bar lounge (review is up here) As we visited multiple sites in Itoshima, I will save a rundown of those things in a separate post and dedicate this post to our visit to Saga, specifically Mifuneyama Rakuen and the teamLab interactive display.
