Jobless Graduate Why Seek A Job Of Broke?

Jobless graduate why seek a Job of Broke?

Today, a thousand of graduates flooding the job market each year, with the global economic slowdown forecast next year. Banking and petroleum sector are either laid off their employee or reducing the workforce to keep the business afloat during a trying time. Without any vacancy being created, how the freshmen are able to find their dream job?

Launching – the HSBC Plan to Slash Thousands of Jobs.

Shell to Cut 2,200 More Jobs in Face of Weak Oil Prices

Even though the fresher read it, yet Unemployed Graduate still Seeking 9 to 5 Job of Broke (JOB). I can’t understand why????

Why seek A Job

The Unemployed graduate is very choosy with job environment and starting salary, demanding more remuneration and unwilling long hour working.

“What is the normal office working hour?

“How many days annual leave?”

“Is there any year-end bonus?”

“What is your expected salary? a future potential employer asked.

“$3 500 – 4 000, any lesser amount, I will not consider.”

With the kind of salary, they marginalized with the high cost of living in the city.

Peer impressive, they start buying a car to shuttle around the city. Clubbing during the weekend and buying the latest tablets to display their new gadget to the office staff.Wearing branded clothing, shoes and woman using the limited edition of a handbag using the credit card, they would over their moon when the payday comes and making a beeline going for bargain sale.

14 days later, the credit card bill arrives at their door or mailbox, pays the least, a snowball effect with the compounding interest, causing them breathless. A cup of Milo with a toast of bread with butter and jam, naturally, skipping lunch and eat instant noodle before retiring to bed.

6 months down the road, the bank tows their car away subsequently, will sue them for bankruptcy a year later.Finding a part-time job is their option, moonlight deprives their sleep that affecting their daily job, the boss fires them, out of job again.

Please do some soul-searching it is unwise to trade your time for money. Making the employer rich, not you, by paying you $1 000, they expect you to help them to earn at $5 o00, nevertheless a peanut salary increment of 3-5% per year. Living from hand-to-mouth, doubtfully, can they out beat the inflation around 7-8% depending on your lifestyle and area of living?

Ask any fresh graduate,

“Do you want to accept the job offer for a Marketing or Sale Executive in our establishment?

“Sorry, I am not interested!” straight from their mouth without any hesitation.

“Estate trainee manager”

“No, sir”

Why Not Doing Something Else?

Instead of writing many resumes that either land in the wastebasket or trash in the mail, why not doing something else? Looking around, there are abundant jobs to grab unless the graduate willing to accept a lower salary or part-time job instead of idle around gossip in town or be a 24 hours “smombie”. Learning a new skill or e-commerce or online marketing, wasting waste time and money to get master or Ph.D. degree which theory based which landing you nowhere in the job market that requires a few solid experience. you can write or hire freelancer writer, your potential earning could be US$22 000.00 a month instead of spending your precious resources on the latest gossip on Facebook.

What Is Shiny Object Syndrome? Not With Wealthy Affiliate

What Is Shiny Object Syndrome? Not With Wealthy Affiliate

What Is Shiny Object Syndrome? Not With Wealthy Affiliate

Shiny Object Syndrome defined as the attraction to objects that exhibit a glassy, polished, gleaming or otherwise shiny appearance. Something that is simple as a reflection in your peripheral vision may easily distract your attention. How to overcome it?

I have experienced this when I first built my website with the motive to earn some passive income.  We simply didn’t see the overall picture and thinking that the grass was greener on the other side of the fence. Let’s take a look at the symptoms:-

  • Read books and blogs on a variety of subjects.
  • Not taking action on your knowledge.
  • Constantly look for the magic bullet.

2 problems with Shiny Object Syndrome

  1. The grass is greener where you put the horse.
  2. The Money is the ultimate aim.

My painful Journey with  Shiny Object Syndrome

Every internet gurus that I had earlier learned from them said it was pretty easy to make money online. One just needs to copy and paste the Amazon product on your blog. When people click on the buy action now the icon, the money will surely follow you into your bank account. That’s simple, isn’t it? You don’t to write a quality content in your website. Out there they are plenty of greenhorns like me before I stumble upon the Wealthy Affiliate Reviews.

Although I joined the WA on Nov 15th of 2014, not after the free lessons, ignored it until I realized that I am just like a boat sailing in the ocean without any destination.  Always looking for another shiny object syndrome come by so that I can make fast money, finding a needle in the vast deep ocean like MH370.

After years of landing nowhere, I wonder what has I have done wrong. Do I suffer from shiny object syndrome? Yes.  I believe. I often joined another up sell or plugin offering by other internet gurus. 47 000 free plugins in the WordPress alone, any website with more than 5 plugins, the loading speed is extremely slow like a garden snail speed. I often distracted by it and browsing the website to another.  I totally lack focus in this aspects.

Final Landing At Wealthy Affiliate

KluangHomestayvilla.com was the first website I published on 3rd August 2016, a few days later, Google indexed it. 

The road to success in affiliate marketing is a daunting task, often suffering the shiny object syndrome by all of us one time or another. Some of them easily give up when they don’t make any money despite put Facebook or Bing ads. The money went to the drain.

With Wealthy Affiliate, monitoring your daily progress in the ranking factor which I highly recommend, motivates me to go further.  Rome not built in a day, having said that, it takes the time to build our road to success in e-marketing, no shortcut absolutely.

I highly appreciated the Wealthy Affiliate community that mingles with. by supporting each other by posting the questions and someone would reply you with a solution which was absent in other affiliate’s program I had enrolled earlier.

Failure is next step to success, I determine and perseverance that led me to the bright in my future endeavors.

Kudos to Wealthy Affiliate.

How to Build A Free WordPress Website Within 30 minutes

One day I browsed through my email. Kyle from Wealthy Affiliate sending an email to me, I studied thoroughly, subsequently,  I became a premium member after serious study for a month.

My final verdict of Wealthy Affiliate

Pros

1. Helpful community:

There are so many members welcomed when you first join, you are not alone in the shelf. Those seniors or veterans or successful bloggers often lend you a helping hand.

2. Post question, there will be an answer

I believe why there are so many students from other course left the study half-way. I did join one of the Udemy course, you are doing self-study, when facing difficult there is either no support from a non-existing community or the course instructor. You become info technics savvy spending hour and hour of research. Finally, Give up

3. 24/7 live support

Since many members doing the same course, all your questions will be within the same day, why? It is due to the fact is a global community, a difference of time zone.

4. Domain Name

Buy a domain is so easy, and it is cheap with domain privacy. Only $14.99. No other domain registered company will give you such a great bargain, except 1 and 1.com, but it is only the 1st purchase only, you still need to pay for domain privacy.

5. Free Website Hosting

By joining a premium member or even free membership, Website hosting provided free of charge. Isn’t a surprise?  It is Free!!!! You cannot believe it but it is true and free. I paid $97.00 for web hosting for merely 5 domain names, but in the Wealthy Affiliate.com it is 50. 25 Free web sites another 25 for paid domain names.

6. Free Trial Lesson

There is a free trial lesson for whole life, but it is limited only to 10 lessons. The Beautiful part of it, even founder Kyle and co-founder Carson reply to your question for 7 days. Other courses Pay first before you join no free trial lesson.

7. Unique Ranking System

It is the unique ranking system that motivates one to do daily activities and study. By helping other to solve problems, we improve ourselves too in affiliate marketing knowledge. We become addict to it just like the Facebook, checking daily the activities and ranking.

8. Lesson

There is Boot camp with video training plus the certificate from basic to advanced level been provided by founder Kyle. Also, the training wrote or video by some seniors or ambassadors. You would not find yourself start the course at the university level for those newbies like me. The course structure range from basic to deep, nevertheless, it easy follows for those computer morons like me who does not even know how to copy and paste at the initial stage.

9. No Up sell

Unlike other 2 affiliate programs that I had enrolled earlier, there were upsell on a further advanced course, website hosting, Keyword tools search, yearly earlier maintenance cost etc. In Wealthy Affiliate here, only Jaxxy.

Cons

We tend to lose focus and concentration due to much reading the blog post by the member, or answer the questions. This is the only set back I had discovered so far. We need to refrain ourselves perhaps to only 15- 30 minutes for this kind activity. Try not to addict to it just like the Facebook.

With 9 pros points against 1 con point, why not give yourselves a chance to start your free learning here?

Best drinks quench your thirst Cendol the solution

Best drinks quench your thirst Cendol the solution

The best drinks quench your thirst Cendol the solution for equatorial climate nation.

Thirst is a dry feeling in the throat or mouth prompting a person to drink water. Sweating, urination, and vomiting that can cause you to eliminate more water and salt than you take in resulting in dehydration and thirst. Drinking water is typically healthy. Excessive thirst, experienced without any notable reason, referring as Polydipsia.

An activity is responsible for the feeling of excessive thirst. Consuming spicy or hot foods, monosodium glutamate,  exposure to warm temperatures and extreme physical activity cam lead to increase your thirst.

How much water to consuming daily?

Doctors recommend drinking eight or nine glasses of water daily, consuming actively that amount to hydrate your body.

Water intake

According to your physical activity and surroundings, if you are in warm, dry surroundings, or participating in more physical activity than you normally do, resulting in increasing your fluid intake.

If excess thirst persists.

Chinese food therapy suggests using natural remedies. Wash two raw mangoes and cut them into chunks. Add half a cup of sugar to the fruit: Mix, and then boil them in water until they turn soft. Add a teaspoon of mint leaf paste, half a teaspoon of cumin seed powder and salt as desired. Chill before drinking.

Mangoes help prevent the body from loss of water and aid with excessive thirst and even heat stroke.

A mix juice from half of a cut lemon into a lukewarm water can aid excessive thirst. Add a pinch of rock salt to the mixture and drink it slowly.

Put a  green apple in boiling water, soaking overnight until the next morning, crushing the Apple to extract the juice.  Drink the extract and repeat the process daily continuously for five to seven days.

Add honey or sugar to tomato juice made with fresh tomatoes drink the juice daily for five to seven consecutive days to satiate thirst.

CONSULT A DOCTOR

If the excessive thirst persists, a diabetic cannot quench thirst, advisable to seek medical treatment. A  strong urge to drink water may also indicate a psychological problem — so seek the advice of a psychiatrist.

A typical scene in Malaysia during the hot sundry afternoon.

“Mamat, one Ice Kacang please.” a pretty lass order.

Mamat, three cendol with more gula Melaka” shouts another table.

Regardless the social status of the person, there is one typical Kluang famed Mamat stall selling Cendol next Sen Electrical shop, locating in the old Metro Cinema Building. It operates daily rain or shines from 9 am to 6 pm; the 3rd generation operating it now.

Kluang Third Generation Mama Cendol stall

Kluang Third Generation Mama Cendol stall

Kluang Third Generation Mama Cendol stall.  

A visit to Kluang without tasting the third generation Mama cendol stall will not be completed. This popular dessert takes its name from cendol, which is the Javanese term for the green worm-like jelly. Chendol was first introduced in Singapore by Indonesians. Later, Indian-Muslim hawker started selling the dessert. The Peranakans also invented their version, which had the addition of sweetened red bean.

A hot sundry 

This is a typical scene in Malaysia during the hot sundry Kluang afternoon.

“Mama, I want one Ice Kacang please.” a pretty lass order.

“Mama, three bowls of cendol with more gula Melaka” shouts another table.

“Mama, I want additional red bean paste.” A driver on his Merced Benz stopped in front of the stall about 50 meters from the Coronation abandoned cinema traffic junction.

Social Status

Regardless the social status of the individual, there is one typical Kluang famed Mama stall selling Cendol next to the Sen Electrical shop. It is located in the old Metro Cinema Building. It operates daily rain or shines from 9 am to 6 pm. It is the 3rd generation operating it now.

Mama Cendol 

There is about 6 round table with an Industrial stand fan and two small wall fans plus a ceiling fan. It is usually occupied by people from all walks of life. The owner is rather busy standing all day long preparing this dessert with the help of his Indian Muslim wife. The serving is super fast with his skillful way scoping the variety of ingredients into a bowl fresh griddle ice. It’s hard to resist the allure of cendol. It is a seductive concoction of creamy coconut milk, fragrant palm sugar and slippery green jelly noodles and a tablespoon of red bean paste.

What is Malaysian cendol? 

This ubiquitous South East Asian dessert called cendol is something I often yield to it when I came to my hometown. It is the combination of palm sugar, coconut milk, and screwpine leaves which flavors make up the base for a majority of sweets from this region. Any dessert with shaved ice goes down well in the tropical heat!

Malaysian use a local palm sugar called gula Melaka. It has a richer, more complex flavor profile of brown sugar and molasses.

Calories count

The type of the ingredients will determine the calories counted in a bowl of cendol. It’s calories range from 167 to 836. A health conscious minded guy would go for the basis, the gula Melaka, the cendol and shaved ice or perhaps a teaspoon of coconut milk.

Cook Your way to a Slim fit body within minutes

Cook Your way to a Slim fit body within minutes

How to Cook your way to a slim fit body within minutes.

Malaysian love to enjoy eating outside for any celebration with friend and family. How clean is the food preparation anyone guesses?The deep-fried dish is our Malaysian favorite, to maximize their profit, most outlets using recycled cooking oil. Consequently,  Malaysian crowned as the fattest nation in the Asian country.

Inflation

The implementation 6% GST on 1st April 2015 and 1st Nov 2016, the removal of cooking oil subsided, the food price is soaring hurting the lower and middle-income group. The restaurant adjusted the price without any ceiling. One can have a decent meal of RM10.00 not anymore unless you are willing to fork out RM20.00. The Hudson’s choice left for us is to cook our meal at home. In order to meet end meet, some city dweller packed home cooking food to school or working.

The recent revolution of Halogen Turbo oven has reduced the cooking time and a lot of saving in electricity consumption and usage of cooking oil. You cook your food to your liking in a perfect way.

Halogen oven?

An infrared way to cook your favorite meal, with an invisibility of light. Being invisible, it manifests itself in the form of radiant heat and when we feel heat without seeing the light.

Not using radioactive ray which could cause damage to the DNA. The radiant heat transfers from the heating element to the food. It cooked directly through the air molecules, raising the temperature of the foodstuffs to very high levels and thus cooks the food.  The toasters and grills in our daily usage cooking across the world make use of the same rays.

Roast

Roasting my 2 Kg of Xiangjian Lamb within 90 minutes, which is faster than using the convention oven. The lamb turn, moist, succulent, piping hot, browned and not raw in the middle. I can see the fat pour out of the meat which is healthy. We can see cooking without opening the oven door, as it is a counter top unit you haven’t had to bend down to check it, either.

You can cook your green on the raw side, full of vitamin, by adding a few drops of sunflower oil over a stainless plate of French bean and garlic. Cook according to your taste medium cook or fully cook by adjusting the time and temperature.

Steam

The Teochew steam white Pomfret is not a problem too, depending on the size of the fish. Pouring some water in the glassware covers it with the potted hole aluminum lid. The steam fish is ready to serve on the table within 5 minutes.

Baked

You can bake cookie by watching the time and not overcooked it. The great cakes, bread or biscuits will turn out just like a normal oven. You can put any normal oven-ware pots, pans, cake tins, grease proof paper etc in a halogen, unlike the microwave it isn’t affected by the container.

Cleaning

Cleaning the grease and oily glassware is a nightmare to anyone. Put some detergent and water, press it to clean and sterilized mode. Pour out the boiling water and raise with running tap water that saves us ample time for cleaning.

Healthy Kluang Desa Mutton Biryani Best Favourite Choice

Healthy Kluang Desa Mutton Biryani Best Favourite Choice.
Mutton biryani is a healthy nutritional food providing you with immunity power. It is healthy to the body and increases the strength of the bone. You can consume mutton biryani along with the side dishes such as pappadam, salad and pickles.

Origin

There are many versions of the origin of biryani. It is mainly origin during the Moghul Empire in the Indian south continent.
But the main basic remain same with many species added to enhance the flavor. It mainly eats the long grain rice in India subcontinent. The Middle East prefers Nan over the rice.

Hyderabad Biryani

I first tasted the best biryani that I had ever eaten in a restaurant. It was a stone throw away from the main gate of the Osmania Medical College in Hyderabad.  It was extremely hot and spices with fresh dried raisin added into the rice. After 30 minutes devouring, my Iranian friend dashed off to the toilet.

“What happened to you Ali, are you alright?

“Jamin, the mutton was extra hot. I feel the burning sensation around my anus. I am not used to taking hot chili spices food back home.” he explained.

Desa Biryani

Without tasting the finger licking Desa Biryani, a visit to Kluang is not completed. The Desa biryani is a double story shop lot situated parallel to the main road between Kluang and Air Hitam. It is a traffic light junction before you take a left turn, in front of the Petronas kiosk. It is a sibling affair business runs for almost 2 decades by two brothers in Taman Desa, Kluang.

Sold out

In the normal day, it starts to serve the throng of customers queuing up as early as 10.30am. 2 large pots of Basmati long grain rice  would be finished by 12.30pm. I feel sorry for the late comer. You can choose either mutton or chicken with side order like pappadam beside the cucumber and pineapple achar. Or you can be sipping a cup of cool lemon ice refreshing drink to round up your meal.

Since it occupies only one shop lot, the customer prefers to pack their food eating in the cool comfort in the office or at home. This is a setback for this shop. Once you have eaten, you would come back for more. People eat with full perspiration under the fan as along as the food is authentic and delicious.

Nutrition Fact

Healthy Kluang Desa Mutton Biryani Best Favourite Choice, is a must try for your next visit kluang .

The nutrition information of mutton biryani: 600 calories, Fat: 20 and carbohydrates: 40g.

How to slim down fast for Asian’s Fattest Malaysian?

 

How to slim down fast for Asian’s fattest Malaysian?

When I was traveling in other nation like China and Vietnam, hardly see fat people walking around the street. A refreshing morning, crowded green park with people doing the exercise like dancing, singing or practicing tai chi.
“Is it only the weekend the park is full of people?” I asked the people around.
“No, it is a normal daily routine to people here, rain or shine, they are doing this form of relaxing exercise for a healthy body promoting their lifespan with less illness.”

Beautiful Sunday morning

It is a beautiful Sunday morning, hardly seen any soul there, merely a few gray hair couples resting their tired leg on the wooden bench after walking a few around circulating the small pebble pavement.
The opposite food court building packed with a throng of people queuing up for their table. Proudly displaying All occupied seat in the middle of the hallway. Packed like a can of sardine, even a mosquito cannot accommodate there. The cashier machine noise is not non-stop for more than a minute, the cashier is busy changing the note with the happy full stomach customer.

Malaysian eating habit

“Double “Rati Canai” with 2 kung fu frying an egg, a “Teh Tarik” with sweetened condensed milk.
“One nasi lemak with 2 pieces of fry drumstick”
In another store, one customer shouting out loudly.
“One wanton mee with more barbecue meat”
“One curry mee with more cockerel”
“Four cendol with more coconut milk”
“Two pieces of the Chapati with mutton curry, fast please”

NO XL or XXL size

Year end sales in the department store, attracting a throng of frantic buying people, what remained among a heap of mountain clothing remains unsold, the small and medium clothing occupy the trolley. Over the moon and the woman luck upon you as you will go to strike the lottery ticket, if you can find one clothing label with XXL or XL or L. Nevertheless, In school and street, you can stumble across a lot of the chubby, but not the slim smart people.

Slimming business

Rolling business for the elegant posh and customized design slimming beauty centers, there is a bee queue of people willing to spend up 5 figures of money shaping back to their youth day.

Tips of how to slim down Fast in 4 months.

I did that in 3 months loosing about 21 Kg in 4 months, a simple method to try it out at your own leisure time.

Doing the ab muscles in a rhythmic fashion can stimulate a bowel movement. Works it out for 5 to 10 minutes crunches, reverse crunches and butterfly crunches are effective choices. 

After brushing your teeth, gushing down at least 500 ml of lukewarm plain water. Your stomach has the feeling of fullest. It promotes the bowel movement and passing out the toxin and fat, consequently avoiding constipation too.

Taking your breakfast 30 minutes interval, sipping only 1 cup of black tea or coffee with pieces or two slices of steamed or just plain high fiber wholemeal bread. Preferably you can consume a red apple or banana or guava or orange or papaya. Avoiding green apple or pineapple as it is too acidic torture your way to gastric ulcer or cancer over long-term consumption. Replacing bread with a bowl of porridge sprinkle with a few drops of sesame oil or virgin extract olive oil and a hard-boiled egg. No fried egg, please.

Upon reaching the office, parking your car at least 100 to 200 meters from the office building. Walking a healthy exercise in the bucolic surroundings as the air is fresh.

Eating your fancy food during lunch hour, but no deep-fried or processed nugget or similarity. Takes half part of your daily intake of rice, preferably with a cup of plain water. No sugary drink or soft drink. Sugary drink makes you grow fatter.

Before you go to do 45 to 90 minutes of work out after work. Chewing a bar of dark chocolate (not the sugary crap) with mineral water to prevent you feeling hungry during the burns out exercise. Do it at the gym or walking in the green park. No talking or reading or playing with your hand phone just concentrated on it.

Consuming 2 fresh red apples or a sweet mango substituting the normal meal or drink hot dark chocolate with a slice of wholemeal. Or a bowl of noodle vegetable soup with sprinkled with a few thin slice of fish meat. Feeling hungry, piped it with plenty water, sustaining, with a large amount of high fruit fiber, and limitation on few carbohydrates.
Retiring to bed by 11 pm or 12 midnight the latest, the body toxin expelling during the golden hour from 11 pm 3 am. Consequently, obesity is the result of depriving 7 to 8 hours of sleep.

One Nation Different States Tax Varies

One Nation Different States Tax Varies

One Nation Different States Tax Varies.  A tales of two cities.

I live in Johor state after returning from my oversea tertiary education. I work in Johor trough out my working life with a short stint in Singapore. After married, I often travel to Kuching, my wife hometown.  There is where my culture shock began.

Transport charges

My wife bought her first home need extensive renovation at the front car porch. Off we went to the hardware shop dealing with ceramic tile. After an hour viewing and selection, we finally settled for tile costing more than RM2,000.00

” Boss, There is an RM50.00 transport charge that you need to pay.” the sweet damsel told us.

” Wh…at! Why? We brought over RM2,000.00 worth of tiles, there is no such practice in Johor, moreover, the distance between here and to our house is merely 5 kilometers away. You cut throat ” I probed.

” It is standard practice here. No transport charges, no delivery, our business is still very good, Look at the crowd of buyers outside.” she cockily answered me.

Now, I understand why my fifth brother built a Japenses factory shipped all the building material from Johor. The houses here have very low ceiling regardless the types of house, be it bungalow or low- cost house. I hardly seeing a house built by the developer has a 15 ft high ceiling. 

I questioned my brother-in-law about this issue. He advises not to compare with Johor with a question mark?

Deposit

We were busily cooking our meal one day, the gas had finished. I called the gas delivery man to send me two cylinders of gas.

” OK. no problem, but you need to pay RM200.00 for the deposit of the new cylinder gas tank” the boss briefed me over the phone.

” Why RM200.00 for the deposit, not RM80.00 in West Malaysia, moreover, the gas is a control item in Malaysia” I questioned him. 

” Then you wait for RM200.00 drop to Rm80.00.” He told me off.

Identity issue.

I am Johorean, each time at the arrival hall at the Kuching International Airport, I need to go the immigration counter.  I need to sign a small note of paper, keep it safely, present to them after leaving the Sarawak, but there is no such issue when East Malaysian entered West Malaysia.

Once I questioned about it.  

” Inilah procedure, jangan tanya saya kenapa. Tanya orang di atas” the muka asam immigration ooficer answered me like that.

East Malaysia has joined the Federal on 16 Sept 1963, I just don’t under why such an issue exists until today. 

Can anyone know the true answer?

One Nation Different States Tax Varies. A tales of two states

No House Assessment

During my trip back to Kuching to celebrate Chinese New Year with my wife’s sibling. We went to the land surveyor office to pay the house assessment which is due soon in May 2017.

” I am here to pay the house assessment” I politely told the smiling face cashier at the counter.

” Sir, Good afternoon, there is is no more house assessment since July 2016. It has been abolished. The commercial lot only need to pay” she told me with her warmth smile.

We went off smiling ear to ear.

No Land Tax

My son and I went to the Kota Samarahan to pay the land tax for a small piece of agriculture land.

” Sir, this is the identity card, I would like to check how much I have to pay for the ‘Cukai Tanah?” He asked.

After a few minutes after checking with the computer system, there is no outstanding. He briefed us, “you don’t have to any the land tax from January 2016 onward.”

We could not believe what he said.

” Yes, sir, it has been abolished by the late Tan Sri Adenan Satem since 2016. Another Ang Pao for us in this 2017 Rooster Year. I really pay through my nose for land tax and house assessment in Johor for a few thousand ringgit a year.

We have a hard time in the high cost of living in Malaysia, where everything goes up, never comes down the only exception Malaysia  Ringgit down more than 30% against US$ since last year.

A poem to console me before I can retire to bed tonight.

UP$ UP$ UP$

Last year, Cooking Oil Up

Recently, fuel 20 cents up 

Grocery bill goes up

Petrol bill also goes up 

My Goreng Pisang also up

Mama Mee Goreng also up 

Malay Nasi Goreng Kampung also up

Chinese Kung Fu noodle also up

Harga Kangkong pun Naik

Gaji x Naik

But my “Kepala Angin” naik

Then my doctor fee also Naik.

Only Malaysian Ringgit RM is down.

Prefer Homestay Over Hotel in Malaysia

Previously, the majority of the tourists travel to Malaysia and stay in hotels never get to experience true Malaysian hospitality. Thus, it is changing as a result of the growing popularity of homestay in Malaysia. Briefly a homestay is similar in concept to that of a bed and breakfast, guests are either accommodated in the family home, or in separate quarters nearby. Moreover, most of them homestay provide their guests with just as much comfort as a well-furnished reputable hotel.

Prefer Homestay Over Hotel in Malaysia

Reasons To Choose Homestay   Over Hotel On Your Travel.

An informal space

In a nutshell, a homestay an extension of someone’s home or another building not far from the host’s home converted for travelers. Not only supplement the income of the owner. , but also, let the travelers experienced the way of daily life and culture of the host. Consequently, it benefits both parties. Feel the ambience of the homestay is less intimidating than a large impersonal hotel filled with other people and fixed rules. In addition to personalized service and friendliness staff entertains throughout the duration of stay. Let the guest bring back the sweet memory home. As they can afford to cater to the demands of their few guests, as opposed to a hotel that has to take care of hundreds of people.

No spike drink or food

Moreover, predator sexually assault or rape the weaker sex in the hotel due people from all walks of life moving around in the hotel premises. Not only hard to detect a rogue amongst the hotel guests, but also the table drink can be spiked or drug been adding to your food. Not likely in homestay venue, as you know your friends and family member well. Most homestay guest check in the homestay are either their buddy or relative or family members.

Excellent Place to visit

Local residents know their place up to their finger tip. Staying with someone local can access the best information on the place.  Lack of exact information in the travel guide booklets. Exploring the news online, with outdated and repetitive information, why not directly asked horse mouth. So trust your host to tell you where to go and what to do. Moreover, homestay owners make it their business to know more about the local area. So that they can point out shortcuts and scenic routes to their guests, making exploring all the more convenient.

The best local cuisine 

Famed for fine dining, Kluang is no short of visitor throng the food outlet. Especially during weekend and long holiday season, hardly any vacant seat find. Yet diner don’t mine to line up like a bee for the exotic and economical local cuisine. Received guest  from Canada, Australia, and Singapore check in my homestay to have an authentic taste of Hainan and Luwak coffee. A guest of mine from Kuala Lumpur would not mine to have a high tea. It costed him  a whopping RM 252.30 for a small cup of Luwak Coffee and a piece of cheesecake.

Not forgetting the Famed Kluang Botak Curry Mee and Desa halal mutton and chicken Braynani rice make the bat town shine like a diamond.

More peace and quiet

If you want to avoid the hustle and clutter of cities, this is a good choice. A small weekend retreat for gathering of 15 occupants at the homestay, means peace and silence harmony quality time spent, with family and friends. These properties also give you access to the more remote areas of the country. Whereby, the infrastructure or a lack of vision has come in the way of building hotels. The unfrequented, less populated spot offer retreat area to release yours working stressful lifestyle.

Responsible tourism

Occupying at a homestay, you are contributing to the livelihood of the local community. Not far away from my Kluang homestay is a town known as Air Hitam notable for clay pot and plastic handicraft flower. During the school holiday and weekend, there are rows of express bus parking at the congested roadside. Tourist having a good time in bargain on goods. It is a weekend phenomenon that causes massive traffic of 5 to 6 kilometers. It contributes economic significantly to the livelihood of the local residents.

Forming unlikely friendships

You never know whom you encounter on your travels, whose home you end up staying at. Homestay owners tend to be chatty folk. People who don’t like to meet other people are unlikely to open up their home to strangers.  The conversations are entertaining and enlightening, that might just form a new friendship for life.

Economical

Pragmatic reason prefers a homestay over hotel is, of course, that it’s cheaper. Often by half, and with no hidden costs. Hosts can lead you to cheaper eating options in the area, consequently, stretching your money goes for longer at a homestay. Affordably, you could have extra sightseeing excursion or trek.  You might not have done if you were spending more money on just accommodation. It costs an arm and leg to have your clothing been wash and iron in the hotel. But whereas homestay often furnished  with wash machine, giving the guest  a substantial saving.

These are the great reasons and deciding factors prefer Homestay  over Hotel in Malaysia.
