There is something inherently exciting that the locals don’t want you to find. Somewhere a little off the beaten track, disguised as apartment blocks, pizzerias, warehouses, these hidden gems reward any intrepid (and thirsty) seeker, LIKE YOU.
We’re entering a brand new year. It’s the time when pretty much everyone is setting their New Year’s resolution again (who invented this crazy tradition?).
Truth is, resolutions are often set in the midst of New Year’s euphoria and is hardly ever achieved. We can give myriad of reasons as to why we’re not achieving what we set out to do, chances are it all boils down to one factor, self-discipline.
Admittedly, self-discipline is a core attribute to productivity, focus, and happiness of one’s life. Therefore, it is really important for us to develop a set of discipline, or rituals to hold ourselves in check.
Here are some simple practices to work out your self-discipline muscle!

Continuing on our last blog post, let’s move on to the 3rd and 4th day of our trip in the East Coast. In case you’ve forgotten about the WHYs of traveling to the East Coast, link attached for your reference. After traveling to Pahang and Terengganu, our next and final destination of this journey would be Kelantan.
Although it seems like a long journey from Terengganu to Kelantan, it is definitely worth the drive. Imagine the seaside and beaches are just a few miles away from you while driving. That’s something you can’t get in a busy city like Kuala Lumpur. In fact, it is one of the star highlights of the entire journey.
Craving for a road trip but don’t know where to start? The East Coast might be one of the best options you can go for and here are the WHYs we mentioned before. We have attached a detailed itinerary for you so that you can have a smooth journey. READY, SET, GO!
Peninsular Malaysia’s East Coast is an often overlooked part of Malaysian travels when compared to states like Penang, Kuala Lumpur, and Sarawak. The Federal Route 3 is the main road that runs alongside the East Coast which leads to popular travel destinations in the east like Pahang, Kelantan, and Terengganu. Here are the WHYs…
The wait is over, as our Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng has recently tabled Malaysia’s Budget 2019. This is the largest ever federal budget allocation (RM314.5bil), compared to the previous two federal budgets. Plus, it is also the first-ever federal budget tabled by the new government (Pakatan Harapan).
Fighting over the playlist while on the way to your destination? The best solution is to play a game! Here are some UNIQUE driving games that can lift spirits and keep you entertained.
