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.

Head South to Desaru Coast - Malaysia’s Hidden Holiday Retreat

As more Malaysian residents begin to venture out of their homes for a much-needed getaway, the spotlight beams brightly on the plethora of destination options available within the country. Local tourism has witnessed a boost in recent weeks as holidaymakers make a beeline for popular hotspots. However, very few, if any, can claim to “have it all” in one place while at the same time, ensure a proper, physically distanced holiday, far from the maddening crowds – with one exception, perhaps.

This Merdeka, one hidden gem on Malaysia’s southern coastline is all geared up to entice visitors to rediscover what makes this country truly great, with the best that it has to offer. Boasting wide open spaces across 3,900 acres along a 17-km unspoiled beachfront, Desaru Coast Destination Resort (Desaru Coast) certainly has it all – globally acclaimed hotels and resorts, nature pursuits, one of the biggest waterparks in the world, golf, as well as a host of retail and lifestyle offerings, all nestled within a rich bio-diverse location which is easily accessible via road, air and sea.
