Review: Malindo Air (A Flight from Kota Kinabalu to Singapore)

Just when I wanted to highly recommend Malindo Air for any flight in Southeast Asia region, I just found out that Malindo has recently changed their policy in terms of free baggage and onboard meals.

So, after my Borneo trip ended, I flew to Singapore with Malindo Air from Kota Kinabalu. And I suppose this was one of the last Malindo flights before they changed the policy. Now that they’ve got a new policy with a few flight options, I’m still going to write a review of my flight anyway.

I’ve also checked the price with each package to compare with my last experience flying with Malindo. So, would I still recommend you to fly with Malindo around ASEAN countries? Here’s the review for this Malindo Air! 🙂

May Day: Some International Workers Sharing Their Stories on International Workers’ Day

It’s May Day, so for those of you who could actually relate… Happy International Workers’ Day on the first of May! 😀

Anyway, I know some countries celebrate Labors’ Day on some other day, but in case you don’t know… May Day is dedicated to all workers. And it’s there to celebrate laborers and working class in general.

That’s why I initiated a collaboration with some fellow bloggers who are also workers with various backgrounds. With the world that is claimed as almost ‘borderless’ nowadays, so many workers have different stories about their job.

Some have to relocate and deal with culture shock for a bit. Some have to struggle with the art of commuting. Some probably have the luxury of working remotely with some different difficulties along the way too.

So, here I present you the stories of international workers on this very International Workers’ Day!

What You Could Get in Darjeeling for $10 – Ride the Town with the Steam-Powered Train

Hi everyone! 😀

As surprisingly as it sounds, this week’s $10 series will be the first post covering a town in India. Yup, the last post on my blog covering India, it was about the local beauty products from India.

And this will not be the touristic city like New Delhi or Mumbai. Instead, we’re going to cover a town that is famous for its significant tea: Darjeeling.

You see, I honestly know nothing much about the city except for its tea. But then again, thanks to Somnath from Travel Crusade, now we can know better about the town. Moreover, we can find out what’s the best thing to do in Darjeeling with your $10!
