Stimulus, Stimulus Everywhere

    From “trillion dollars stimulus package”, down to “lunch stimulus package”, “recession proof your health” sort of deals, it seems that we are having stimulus everywhere. Even MAS has gone extra mile to launch their very own stimulus package with a total of 9 deals covering economy class, business class and first class! Not everyone is happy with the giant stimulus package that leaders around the world are pushing through, but I’m pretty sure that cheap fares will definitely make everyone happy!

    On a separate note, MAS is having this The Great Escapade contest in Facebook with many lucrative prizes to be won!

    1st PRIZE: 1X Return Business Class to Sydney/ Japan

    2nd PRIZE: 1X Return Business Class + 50% discount for your companion to Hong Kong

    3rd PRIZE: 1X Return Business Class to Bangkok

    and many many more…

    Me myself have actually won something via MAS facebook group and guess what, I’m going to take part in this contest too. I need to blog about a story entitled “The Great Escapade: My Fun Travel with MAS!” and incorporate a minimum of 3 of the travel deals under MAS Stimulus Package in my story and submit the entry by email. Japan, here I comeeeeee! (for more info, please log on to MAS’s facebook group)

    OK, let’s check out these good deals from MAS stimulus package!

    So the First and Business Class deal does not really apply to me. Boss, you can take a look at this.

    I have a great idea! We can actually plan a food trip to  Penang or even Kuala Terengganu and eat like there’s no tomorrow. Something like SIX meals a day! It’s good to go home every now and then too, as time goes in a different pace compared to KL.


    Best of Penang!

    Woot! I can foresee that we are going to Bali very soon, right kampungboy? Considering the fact that you went to Phuket Island without me, you still owe me a weekend escapade there!

    What a good news for affectionate couples and BFFs who wish to travel together. While it might be a bad news for some, as possessive gf/bf has the best-estever reason to tag along!

    Domestic and Asean travel

    For those who emailed me and ask me about the price of our ticket to Kota Kinabalu, you can now book online to enjoy lower air fares. Did I mention that we spent less than RM500 per person for our 3 days trip, including a visit to KK national park and TAR marine park?

    With so many pocket friendly options from MAS, it seems like recession is almost the best time to travel, given that you have some money to spend, of course. As traveling to places outside ASEAN is beyond my affordability, I’m going to draft my entry for the ‘The Great Escapade’ contest now, wish me luck in bagging the air ticket to Sidney/Japan!

    Finally, I’ve found a reason to like the current economic meltdown.

    * its really the best time to travel now.
