clip_image001

So, there’s this ASEAN Pass Promotion going on in Air Asia website. What is it? It’s a Pass, both 10 credits and 20 credits ones, available to be changed into flight based on their credits value, in between ASEAN countries.

But! There’s a lot of terms (normal for this kind of thing) that you must follow. Oh, and it wasn’t there when I bought it, but there’s a 10% discount of inbound flight (for visiting your starting ASEAN city from your country)

Overhaul and Revamping

It seems like a sudden decision, but this weeks this blog will receive quite big overhaul and revamp. Basically I want to write this under my real name and merge some of my online presence together. I was thinking of getting a new domain name and maybe move this blog to self hosting, but after some thinking, that will come for later. Anyway, blog articles will suddenly come streaming and design will change quite drastically, but I’m hoping that it’ll be good. I’m still quite paranoid and insecure about  me writing under my real name though.

Anyway, for people here knowing myself in real life, hello! Although it’s written as different person, I am still me. Hopefully this me is not giving you that much of a shock.
