Sekinchan Trip

I will have a short trip to Sekinchan in the coming weekend. So today I spent some time to do research work for the information about attractions and local restaurants there.

As it’s first time to go there, I think it’ll be great if I can have a customised map for the trip. Well, finally I did it. In case anyone wanna use it, I just share the customised map(*this map is in Chinese) here. If you’re an Android phone user,download the app from Google called “My Maps” to enable the customised map loading on your phone and linking to Google Maps which allows to navigate you to reach the destination.

I will update this post after I come back from the trip. Happy weekend ahead!

MeterOn – Official app from SPAD

Taxi service in Malaysia is so hard to get good comments from locals as well as foreign tourists. The most complaints are about not following meter and bad attitude.

Recently,the taxi fare raised again. That brought out a lot of noises from those taxi passengers.Why could they increase their fares while providing such a lousy service?

Malaysia’s Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) noticed the problems and decided to use the power of technology to supervise the taxi industry,to make sure that taxi service could get improvements after revising the fares. MeterOn App goes for that purpose.

HotelQuickly – Your amazing helper for last-minute hotel booking

Sometimes you may face the booking issue when you are stuck in a city that you didn’t plan to stay. Most hotel reservation websites/apps only accept the booking at least 24 hours before you arrive.That normally causes quite a lot of headache if you’re not familiar with the city that you stay in. Most people have no choice but just walk into a nearby hotel which you totally don’t know the price as well as the overall quality until you get there. So it could be a nightmare if you’re not lucky enough.

HotelQuickly is intending to solve that kind of problems. It only provides the last-minute booking ( from today or tomorrow) and could book for 5 days at most.It promises to offer better prices and only those with good reputations will be offered.It’s quite simple to use it.
