How to find that hidden cheap flight for your ideal trip!

I am this happy knowing I’ll be seeing this paradise again! It’s been a while since our last super-sulit Island getaway and I’m excited to get the ball rolling on this topic for you.

So last Monday I was pulled by the hurricane-like effect of vacation hangovers; screwed up hitting the snooze button to gain extra 10 minutes of sleep, arrived late to work and missed my morning meeting. Phew!  But even if I haven’t had the best morning, I was able to accomplish something prolific and exhilarating. Who wants to dive-in on my “forever summer” trip and Go Island hopping with me on one of my favorite beach destinations so far – Krabi, Thailand?

I know you’re dying to say yes disregarding my stamp of approval coz hell yeah! (You’d rather go on your own) then go find yourselves cheap air tickets for dates Nov 5 to 8. As for me, my booking has been confirmed. Hola!

Here are few easy tips on how to find that hidden cheap flight for your ideal trip.

Sign-up for Airlines reward program!

As a budget traveler I stick to Asia’s budget carriers. This means fewer perks but sure way cheaper and practical and fun - if fun is what you’re after. Most of us tend to ignore links from ads and tiny call outs on their websites, but if you click the right link you’ll be surprised with the endless possibilities of – possibilities. Lol!

The best example for this is the Airasia BIG Loyalty Program wherein you will earn BIG points on your Airasia flights or with their participating partners if you’re not jet-setting around the world all the time.BUT being an Airasia member does not guarantee you for the incentive. You need to sign-up for Airasia BIG BIG and claim your points from every Airasia flights you made.  Only then you can use these points to redeem free seats, free add-on and hotel accommodations.

Pay with your debit card instead of credit card!

Many times free seat or zero-fare ticket means you just have to pay for the taxes - an inescapable obligation of a law-abiding citizen. Hahaha.  At a minimal cost, of course! Now to avoid additional charges and hidden cost, use your SCB card upon checkout instead of credit card. Airlines often charge credit card user with 75 % service charge while with direct debit you will only incur more or less 10% of the tax price.

Just make sure you're enrolled with your bank's internet banking to use this payment channel. 

Book your hotel with their participating partners!

Lets say you travel 2Days and 3Nights for your holiday this month. And an ideal hotel offers an average of 6000 BIG points on every hotel bookings.That's enough points toward an economy class seat on your next family trip to Chaing Mai or an early Christmas trip to Singapore with your husband. Speaking of a jet-setter sans the money.

Follow their Facebook page and watch out for special offers!

I would have missed out on a round-trip ticket to Krabi for only 200baht if I wasn't following Airasia BIG on Facebook. Oftentimes they offer last minute deals and special promotions to members for only 24 hours and after that they will open it to public. With priority access you can choose dates flexible to your schedule. It's a huge win if you're a super woman like me. Ahem! So much more, if you subscribe to their mailing list. 

Lastly, this is not a sponsored post so consider this a precious advice from a casual friend.

See you on board :)

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.

Yep, when major sales popped out, I'll stop what I'm doing to catch a glimpse on which of those pieces look good on me.
