I got another chance of scaling this mountain on 28th August 2018. To say this mountain is the highest in South East Asia will attract arguments so I will just say that it’s the highest mountain in Malaysia. I have climbed this mountain four times previously, all were before the 5th June 2015 Sabah earthquake incident that took away 18 lives from Mount Kinabalu. This climb would be something new to me because new trails were created as diversion to previous damaged trails due to the earthquake.
My last post, which I just realised, was more than 7 months old. I feel guilty because my initial plan was to update this blog at the very least once a month. So what happened since September 2016?
My wife was pregnant with our first child and our baby girl was finally born in December 2016. For the past 5 months, life took a dramatic change with addition of a new family member and it becomes more and more challenging to find time updating this blog on a regular basis.
However, rest assured that this blog is still very much alive and I’m still working out a way to get this blog updated on a more regular basis. For those who are still following me, I thank you for your continuous support.
That’s all for this time. Stay tuned and cheers!
Hi, just a short one here.
Do you guys know what is an ‘Airbnb’? Maybe younger generation will recognize this. It’s basically an online portal whereby you can look for places to stay overnight around the world. These are places hosted by individuals who have available spaces for you and in return, you pay them small fees. If you heard of Agoda.com or Booking.com, it works in a similar way, except this one, is not hotel, but private properties.
I’m hosting my empty space at Airbnb too. The new menu called “Airbnb” above will bring you to my property page at Airbnb. Feel free to have a look or drop me a message or email me if you require further clarification or assistance! Have a nice day!
If you’re an avid traveler and often searching for cheapest airfare just like me, you’re going to love something that I am going to talk about.
Now, planning a trip, the problem you will almost always encounter is how and when to get a cheap airfare. If you’re travelling to a destination that is only serviced by one airline then there’s no problem, you basically have no choice. What the airline offered, you will just have to accept. But if you’re travelling to a destination that is serviced by a few airlines, it’s going to be a headache especially to those who are very price-conscious like me.
Previously, painstakingly, I went to an airline website, selected my destination, date of travel and wait for the airline to list down it’s prices offered and then after that, I would go to the other competing airline websites and repeat the same effort to get their pricing for comparison. If i’m in bad luck, the cheapest airfare may have being snapped up before I decided to purchase it. You know how frustrating it is if you went through above like I did.
