Spontaneous Travel On A Discount

I just booked a flight to Krabi, Thailand for January 2015.
Looking forward to enjoy 4 days of rock climbing and lazing on the beach.

For this trip, I will be booking my hotel via a new mobile app called HotelQuickly. This mobile app gives it's users an average of 28% discount on hotel bookings. The catch is that you are only allowed to book your hotel a day in advance!

In a study done by HotelQuickly, the average occupancy rate of a hotel is 63%. Meaning that 37% of rooms are unused every night. In an attempt to create opportunity, HotelQuickly connects hoteliers to last minute travellers, offering discounts of 28% off room rates (average - can be more, can be less).

All hotels are hand-picked by the HotelQuickly team and the best-rated 3, 4, and 5 star hotels are listed on this app. Only the top 10 best deals will be shown to users on their chosen night, based on hotel ratings and highest discount rates, saving you the time of scrolling through hundreds of hotels.

I'm typically NOT your average tech savvy geek chic, but the possibility of travelling and staying at decent hotels on super discounted rates excite me, hence I'm sharing this mobile app with you guys here.

Download this app and get RM70 hotel credits on your first booking using my promo code below! :)

The only slight drawback to this mobile app is that it is only available in Asia Pacific (Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, Macau, Cambodia, Laos, Macau, Australia and New Zealand). And you have to be comfortable in booking your hotel one day before your actual trip.

Having said that, they do have pretty decent 3 - 5 star hotels listed on their app, so I wouldn't be too worried about not getting a decent hotel.

Happy travelling everyone!

And as usual, if you are looking for an awesome bikini for your next beach vacation, look no further than here:

On Love and Loss

It's been ages since I did a blog post!

Shame on me!

It's almost the end of year and it's that time of the year where I'm starting to look back and reflect on this past year's achievements.

The business is growing. Sales have been very healthy & I can foresee that we will continue to grow through 2015.

On an emotional level, 2014 has been challenging. I was suppose to get married to my Brazilian ex-fiance in October, but fate intervened and the wedding never happened.

In June 2014 I made a trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil to see him, and things were good. Things continued to be good all through July but issues cropped up in August.

To make a long story short, we didn't get married in the end. Of course I was upset, hence I kept a low profile (which included not updating this blog!!!). I took a vacation in September to clear my head and threw myself into work in October.

I'm at a point where I can reflect and realize that fate has been kind and that things worked out for the best. They say that perspective is everything and I also realize that I shouldn't remain sad because there are so many things (and people) in my life that make me happy.

I will find love again and I will be engaged and probably married at some point. But for now, I will be happy and contented with what I have and continue to focus and grow the business.

By the way, we have new stocks that just got in. That's a photo of me goofing around in one of our new prints. Wholesale orders have been coming in and they are selling out fast.
