The Face of Your Soulmate Sketch From Relationship Psychic: Is It Legit or a Scam?

The Face of Your Soulmate Sketch From Relationship Psychic: Is It Legit or a Scam?

Before I start writing and you start judging, I know that it sounds desperate for me to spend over $20 USD for a soulmate sketch from an online psychic. Believe me, I don’t usually spend that much money for some random shit like it. I mean, I do, but normally it is for some more useful stuff like clothes that I barely wear because I never leave the house.

So, why did I even spend $40 USD to get the hints of how my soulmate looks like and some random readings to get the leads to find him or whatever? The reason is that I got a refund from Barry Lewis after he decided to discontinue his pizzeria project.

A few months ago, my friend Jay told me about how he spent £90 GBP to back his favorite influencer, Barry Lewis, as he planned to open a pizzeria somewhere in the UK. Now, know that I never heard or saw any video of Barry on Youtube before, but when I checked out the campaign, I was interested.

Why? Because for the minimum of £30 GBP, Barry offered us the benefit of having our name written on the “founders” wall at his future pizzeria. Jay is a big fan of his, so he spent extra for a meet-and-greet and a chance to watch Star Wars or something with Barry. I spent £30 GBP because of my ego to want to have my name written somewhere in the UK.

But then recently, we got the project update, and he decided that it’s safer to just cancel the plan for the time being and he reached out to all 60,000++ backers that he would refund all the money received for the campaign. So, I got the refund and then I couldn’t be trusted with extra money in my hand! LOL.

Review: Solo Staycation at VillaCamp Salse Bandung

Review: Solo Staycation at VillaCamp Salse Bandung

It’s been a couple of months since I had my last staycation at Salse Bandung, and to be honest, I wanted to write a review of my stay since last month, but I was so swamped up with work since the past few weeks that I just didn’t have the time to do it, so here we go! 

Salse Bandung has two types of accommodation in total. One is VillaTel, which is a hotel-type accommodation that comes with some different types of rooms, from Deluxe to Premium. The other one is the one that I’m going to write about, because that’s where I stayed for one night: the VillaCamp!

Dubbed as their exotic cultural resort experience, the type of the accommodation is inspired by Central Javanese joglo style, with a gazebo-type accommodation that is more affordable than the VillaTel Salse. If anything, VillaCamp feels more like glamping with a twist, since it’s not exactly a camp, since half of the accommodation was built with bricks and all, but then again, you can zip out the “window” to get the view around your accommodation.

AirAsia Premium Red Lounge: Is It Worth Upgrading Your Flight Ticket?

AirAsia Premium Red Lounge: Is It Worth Upgrading Your Flight Ticket?

As someone who used to work for AirAsia years ago, I had to admit that I always tried to be as vigilant as I could be when it comes to the benefits that I could get from purchasing any of their products. Call me petty, but I spent my early 20s trying to absorb their product knowledge, and I still missed out on a thing or two that made me lose both temper and money.

From dealing with some irritating passengers (a guy from the House of Representative of the Republic of Indonesia once threw money on my face simply because he didn’t want to pay for freaking IDR 25,000 – around $2 USD – for a check-in service fee!) to even missing the payment for some excessed baggage that made me have to pay from my own salary!

Only when I already resigned, I finally realized the benefits of knowing their product knowledge by heart. That’s why I didn’t even bother to freak out when I missed my flight from Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta on my last trip. At the time, I just booked a room at Tune Hotel Aeropolis KLIA and then another flight ticket for the next day. I rarely upgrade my flight ticket, but since I was flying from Kuala Lumpur at the time, I decided to upgrade it to Premium Flex since I got a chance to experience their AirAsia Premium Red Lounge at KLIA2 terminal.

So, is it worth upgrading the flight ticket?

Tune Hotel KLIA Aeropolis: How It Is and What You Need to Know

Tune Hotel KLIA Aeropolis: How It Is and What You Need to Know

Before the pandemic hit, KLIA had become my preferred airport to have a short layover for some of my international flights. Despite Changi’s popularity in Singapore, I never really enjoyed having a transit there as everything felt so pricey in Singapore. On the other hand, Kuala Lumpur is three times cheaper, and the airport is big enough to people-watching even though it’s not exactly a shopping haven or any place that is effective to kill boredom while waiting for your next flight.

I can’t remember how many hotels around Sepang area where I spent a night or two in Kuala Lumpur for my flights. I wrote about Capsule by Container, which is currently known as CapsuleTransit Airport Hotel in KLIA2. I also had an article about Bary Inn Hotel for when I waited for my flight to Ho Chi Minh City with Vietnam Airlines.

Other than the hotels that I wrote about, I also stayed in some others long before I started this blog. I remember, once I stayed at Sri Langit Hotel, a hotel close to Kuala Lumpur National Airport with an aircraft concept in their rooms. It was quite a nice, not-so-pricey hotel to stay for a night.

And as mentioned the other day, I missed my flight to Jakarta from Kuala Lumpur that forced me to extend my stay in Malaysia for one more day. Since I was too lazy to even spend 50 MYR to leave the airport, I decided to find a room in one of the few airport hotels available around KLIA/KLIA2. And this time, I got a chance to stay at Tune Hotel KLIA Aeropolis.

The Worst Staycation Experience at Horison Green Forest Bandung - The BeauTraveler

The Worst Staycation Experience at Horison Green Forest Bandung

Actually, it’s been half a year since I had a staycation at Horison Green Forest Bandung. The reason why it took so long for me to write the review of my experience was that… I had it so bad that I wasn’t even sure whether it was worth the effort to write about it.

I got a chance to have a staycation at several hotels in Bandung. From Chez Bon Hostel, the budget hostel where my late uncle used to own the place a couple of years ago to hotels like Blackbird Hotel and the legendary Savoy Homann. By far, my experience at Horison Green Forest Bandung has been the worst staycation that I’ve ever had in my hometown.

Honestly, I only decided to write my review of the hotel as I had a chat with Gema the other day, and he also told me that he had a bad experience staying at Green Forest…

So, what does make the property so bad?
