Budget Escapada

I am now infected by the 'Airasia promotions disease'. Have you?


This is what happened last month:

*Ring ring...*

Me: Halor?

Mum: XXX ah? Ei, airasia is having promotion again!!! But 3 days only nia, faster book arr.
(Note: My mum is a profound airasia fan, she has booked almost all airasia go holiday packages by now.)

Was not tempted by this promotion initially. But I have nevertheless clicked into it and made one cheapo escape to Langkawi (RM400 for 2 persons, incl. accomodation + breakkie + flight).

I couldn't believe this, Airasia is now having another 'mother's day promotion'! Feeling itchy (I mean my fingers), I booked another short trip to Kota Kinabalu (RM700 for two).

Urghh...wut? Now Airasia is having 'Lets Go Sarawak' promotion! Maybe I should refrain from visiting this site again.

Char siew bao: How much have you charged to my credit card this month?

Me: Ermmm.....
