Review: Giant Ibis, the Best Bus Operator in Cambodia

Ever since I started planning my last Indochina trip, I knew that I wanted to travel overland from my first stop in Ho Chi Minh City to when I flew back home from Kuala Lumpur

At first, I didn’t think much about the transportation that I’d opt for my journey. However, since I took the minibus from Ha Tien to Kampot, I figure that maybe the best choice that I could make in terms of transportation would be by bus. It would be more convenient for me since I brought big luggage, and the bus will have a space for it without me feeling guilty that my bag took too much space on the trunk of the car. 

So when I left Kampot to Phnom Penh, I decided to just book a bus ticket by Giant Ibis through Bookaway

I initially planned to book a sleeper bus from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. However, when I was about to book it, the sleeper bus was sold out, so I ended up using the same bus operator again for the road trip in Cambodia. 

So, I’m going to share my insights on using their service as the transportation mode in Cambodia. What’s my review on Giant Ibis, possibly one of the best bus operators in the country? Check this out!

Ho Chi Minh City to Chau Doc: Going Out of Town with G5Car Comfort Car in Vietnam

Hi everyone!

I don’t mean to be a tone-deaf if I keep updating my blog with some travel posts from my last Indochina trip these days with all coronavirus things going on. I know this, because it seems to be an issue within the travel bloggers community since I’ve seen a lot of posts from some bloggers complaining about the number of traffic declining and whatnot.

But guess what? It won’t stop me from writing more stories about my last trip around Indochina because first of all… I need to keep my blog active. And other than that, it’s still fresh in my memory so I need to write it now before I forget about what happened. Or worse, before the laziness strikes me!

Let’s be honest, I’ve spent my last few days binge-watching the earlier season of The Mindy Show. I need to force myself to do something a little productive today, and that is to share with you my experience of renting a private car from Ho Chi Minh City to Chau Doc.

The Best Luggage for Your Travel Companion: Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage VS NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on

As I stated in my short profile on the sidebar of my blog, I usually add on checked-in baggage whenever I travel. Apart from back when I worked as a flight attendant, the only time I traveled with carry-on luggage was a couple of years ago when I went to Singapore for Arsenal’s pre-season game on International Champion Cup.

However, I still have a few cabin luggage that I occasionally use for a short getaway. It doesn’t matter that I still end up putting it on the checked-in baggage on the flight.

The point is to at least have cabin luggage, in case I have no additional budget to add the baggage for a flight like my short Singapore trip when I was broke but wanted to go for the sake of football.

And today, I’m going to talk about two cabin-sized luggage that could be your consideration for your new travel companion. Those two that I will talk about in this post is the review between Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage and NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on.

So, between the two, which one is better?

What I’ve Learned from Long-Distance Relationship: Things that Work and Things that Don’t

I’m not saying I’m an expert at long-distance relationships, but I was in a few relationships where I had to be apart from my (now ex) boyfriend. It’s like, I knew that long-distance relationships would be hard, but damn I fell for the guys who live a thousand miles over and over again.

In my last relationship, we had to do long-distance since my ex is doing his PhD in the Netherlands. A few years before then, I was also in a relationship with someone who lived in Istanbul when I was based in Jeddah.

I know too well it’s challenging, it’s just that… When you know, you know the right person for you. It doesn’t really matter if you end up to be with them forever or they’re just there for lessons.

Review: Rose-Shaped Menstrual Cup Travel Pack from Sileu Cup

Hi, everyone… How’s everything going?

If you’ve followed me on Instagram for over a year, I think you know that I’ve been using menstrual cup since earlier last year. I’m not saying that I’m some kind of an activist when it comes to menstrual cup, but I definitely recommend menstrual cup for all the women out there!

When I just got introduced to the cup, I actually wanted to write something about it on this blog. However, since I found almost nothing was written about menstrual cup from the user’s point of view in Indonesian, I ended up writing it on my Indonesian blog. The written in Indonesian about menstrual cup definitely has gone viral, that some people approached me for either consulting or interviewing me for their research about menstrual cup.

I’ve already convinced some girls in my circle to use menstrual cup. My sister is now also using the cup during her cycle, even though she wasn’t sure at first.

And just when I’m here to promote the advantages of using the cup during our menstrual cycle, Sileu Cup sent me a travel pack to be reviewed. I received their travel cup last month just a day after my cycle ended, so I just got a chance to try their pack recently.

So, how is it?
