Hotel vs Airbnb: Why I’d (Most Likely) Choose Hotel over Airbnb for My Accommodation

First of all, I know you might have found a lot of similar posts about this topic on the internet. Well, that won’t stop me from writing this post anyway.

There’s some mixed opinion about which one is better for accommodation. I know some of my friends who would strongly recommend Airbnb for a lot of reasons. Some even make their side income as the landlord to rent their property through the platform.

I know some other people who would still go for the conventional way to book a hotel room. Their reasons could vary, from being blatantly skeptical about staying at some random stranger’s property to just take the easy way in terms of choosing an accommodation.

As for me, despite the fact that I’ve got a lot of friends who have recommended Airbnb since a few years back, my first Airbnb experience wasn’t quite long ago. It was during my stay in Brunei sometime last year. After that, I also got a couple more Airbnb experience that led me to write this one.

And as you probably expect from the title of the post itself, I’d personally choose a hotel over Airbnb. Why? This is why I’m writing this post! 🙂

How To Lose Friends and Make Everyone Hate You

Recently, there was a drama among my former university friends. It all started out with one friend who suddenly published a super racist tweet against the Chinese. That was super ironic, since we went to a Catholic university with most of our friends and lecturers are Chinese by ethnicity.

The tweet was indeed shocking, but not exactly surprising. Not so much, as I’ve been gossipping about her with some friends not so long before this tweet came out of the surface.

To be fair, I was quite close to this racist friend back in the day. As much as I hate it, I kind of understand the background of how this friend could be the way she is now.

And despite the fact that ever since I’m blocked by her on Twitter, this drama basically gave me an epiphany to create content describing how easy it is to lose friends and make everyone hate you. Like what happened to my friend after the backlash.

Around The World With The Beauties! – (Brunei) Beaute Rossera Botanical Lip Balm Honey Lemon & (Thailand) Annabella Angel Aqua Expert Hydrated Facial Mask

Hi everyone!

I know, the feature that was once to be posted monthly has now only appeared once in a semester. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience. In my defense, it took me a while for me to decide which product from which country to be posted first. Not to mention that I’m still trying my best to connect the two stuff that I’m going to cover here.

To be frank, at first I was really planning to write about a beauty product from both Brunei and Malaysia. That was just so it would be related to my Borneo trip. Unfortunately, one of the Malaysian beauty products that I was about to recommend ended up being so disappointing.

That forced me to wait until I got another product to recommend so I could start working on the new feature after my last series on Around The World With The Beauties.

Thankfully, now that I’ve got 2 new beauty product recommendations from 2 different countries with a similarity between both: Brunei and Thailand. From Brunei, I’ve got Beaute Rossera Botanical Lip Balm Honey Lemon. Also, I’ve got Thai Annabella Angel Aqua Expert Hydrated Facial Mask.

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! 🙂
