Self-Service Laundry in Penang

Review: Self-Service Laundry at Summer Tree Hotel in Penang

Whenever I’m on the road, self-service laundry is my best friend. I’m not exactly a light traveler, but that’s why I travel with as little laundry as possible. Laundry makes my baggage heavier than it should be. So, when I’m on a big trip, I usually go to the nearest laundromat to get my laundry done to make sure that I only have to bring a few pieces of my dirty clothes.

A lot of people ask me what I usually do with my laundry whenever I’m on my trip, I usually just roll my eyes and tell them that they act like they don’t live in the 2020s where we can find a laundromat in almost every big city in the world.

But to be fair, there are some cities where a self-service laundromat isn’t too easy to be found. Among many places, I was quite surprised that there weren’t many laundry places around Siam Road in Penang. At least not that I found on Google Map.

So in this post, I’m going to write about my experience using a self-service laundry facility around Georgetown in Penang. It’s the one located in Summer Tree Hotel, which, according to Google Map, is the nearest laundromat from SO Hotel and Ink Hotel.

Of course, there are a few things you should do when booking your trip and before boarding your flight that can help to make your trip as safe and enjoyable as possible.

5 Thrifty Ways to Start a Blog

It’s been quite some time since the last time I published an organic post in this blog. And this time, I want to share some blogging tips to help you get started. I’m a thrifty blogger, so the cheap ways to start a blog are more like my jam to share today!

In case you didn’t know, I’ve been blogging for as long as I remember. I had my first blog when I was around 13 (or 14?!); at the time I used Livejournal to share my random cringey teenage stories. And then I transitioned to Blogspot long before Google bought the platform before settling with Tumblr in my early 20s.

Looking back, it was actually quite funny that the thing I do to make money today is actually the thing I’ve done for years, and it took me a while to realize that there was, in fact, a potential to monetize it in the first place. But well, one just has to learn, I suppose…

When I decided to take blogging seriously by purchasing my own domain in 2017, I never thought I’d come this far, but I’m glad I did. If I gotta be honest, blogging is the business I started in which I spent almost nothing to get started…

So, how can we start a blog in the cheapest way possible?
