Solving One Problem At A Time.

Kind follower Viji (@vrviji on IG) gave me some feedback about the Search Box on my blog not displaying as it should on his iPhone. I suspect it is also worsen by the cranky Drupal CMS I am using. Compatibility on mobile devices is inevitably complicated with so many OS, browsers and screen sizes on so many different devices out there in the market. Tip: Resetting zoomed view to default can usually help.

An Idea Came With The Storm

An idea came during the crazy storm just now. Since my blog has many travel and lifestyle content, why didn't I place a hotel search box on it as well?

Storm was so heavy I had to shut down the PC and I am not so well versed with the Drupal CMS. Needed to research on Google. Could not do it when lightning strikes were getting very rowdy.

New Search Box at Mycen Hotels

Agoda introduced a new search box to its affiliate partners via a webinar recently. Was the first time I sat through a webinar and found it very effective and informative. The video was clear and smooth, the audio very good. Amazing how much difference a good broadband connection makes. Another significant positive fact was that the manager answered all my questions later via e-mail. See screenshot of the new search box attached.

MArina Zakaria at Padang Besar

Choo Choo To Hat Yai.

My lovely, beautiful and adventurous friend Marina Zakaria (@marinazakaria on IG) took a train (ETS) from KL Sentral to the northern border town of Padang Besar. It took about 5 hours, Marina (in own pic shown here) recommends the Platinum class which is RM 106 one way and faster with fewer stops. From Padang Besar, it is another one hour by taxi van ride to Hat Yai town. The electric trains no longer makes the choo choo sounds of olden days steam locomotives.

Cities and hotels with discounts

Sometimes when I try to promote my hotel booking site to a friend, and the friend will ask "can I get discounts?" That's a very typical Malaysian response. Not just about value but friends must always give discounts, it seems.

I love to give you a discount but it is not within my control. I understand the sentiment and the desire to get maximum value as a Malaysian myself. That is why I recently launched the Hotel Deals Finder feature.

The Teapot Kingdom

The Teapot Roundabout Brunei.

When I first saw this giant teapot adorning a roundabout near Kuala Belait in Brunei, I was thinking, at the time, it must be a British hangover. After all, Brunei was a former British colony and tea drinking must be a culture it inherited from the British. The structure's construction was sponsored by Brunei Shell Petroleum.
