Event: Tiger STREATS hits KL, Uncage Street Food

When we talk about street food, we think of stalls lining up the walkway, with tables and chairs arranged in some order along the street that has been blocked off for the night, akin to pasar malam arrangements. When I got the invite to attend Tiger Streats, I was curious to find out how they would dress up a warehouse space to reflect that.

I then entered the warehouse, and loved the arrangement immediately. There were tables to cater to over 700 people, and all these food lovers sat shoulder to shoulder around the street food table, sharing ice-cold Tiger beers at Tiger STREATS.

Digi Prepaid introduces new Add-On, the Unlimited Daily Pass

When I got my very first handphone, I have switched a few telco companies, and finally, settled on Digi. I've been with Digi Postpaid for more than ten years now, and now I wish that I'm a prepaid user.

But in all fairness though, because if you're a Digi Prepaid user, Digi has introduced Unlimited Passes for Prepaid users to enjoy unlimited talking, surfing and streaming from as low as RM1/day. Say WHAT???? Yes, you heard me right. Upon activation, these RM1 passes are valid for 24 hours. There are other Add-Ons as well for RM3/day and RM8/day, but the RM1/day passes are what drew me in immediately.

Review: Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2016

For those of you who know me, you would know that I am really passionate about books. Not the e-book kind where you look at a screen, but those physical copies where you can touch, see, feel, breathe in and admire. 

In a way, I have my upbringing to thank for my love for books. I always got books as presents, and I would read everywhere. In the car, lying down, under the covers, where you can think of, I've most probably read there before. Thankfully my parents never really discouraged me from books, so this love affair grew and grew and never stopped.

Fast forward to today, needless to say I look forward to the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale every end of the year. Why? Because of the great discounts!!!! I used to pay RM30 plus for a book, but nowadays thanks to Bookxcess, I usually pay RM17.90 or below for new books. The past few years, I don't buy books at retail prices anymore because I know that at the end of the year, I will get those titles for only RM10-RM12 per book.
