I’ve never attended a music festival, and never been to Kuching, Sarawak. So when I saw Rainforest World Music Festival happening on 14-16 July 2017 on my Facebook dash, it was an easy decision. Something different as a weekend activity – fly in on Saturday morning, fly back on Monday early early morning.
It was… amazing. Easily one of my top 10 experiences of the year. This guide is best read together with the Rainforest World Music Festival official website (RWMF for short) – I’m just covering this from the budgeting/personal experience angle, so you know what to expect when you plan to go there yourself next year. For complete show and event itineraries and other information, check the official website.

Yes, I’m talking about braces. I’ve been putting it off all my life but finally decided to go through with it. At time of writing, they have pulled out 4 perfectly healthy teeth to make room for my teeth to straighten later. Pardon my Malay, but BAPAK KAU SAKIT GILA DOWH.
Being cost-conscious and all, I did research on the braces cost in Malaysia, but specifically in KL/Subang/Shah Alam area. I asked friends, family members, Twitter as well as scoured Google for answers (not that helpful tbh). In this blogpost I will share what I found out, plus the additional costs that I personally incur while getting braces.
So you have an awesome business idea. And you want to pursue it, hoping that it will generate you a nice bit of income.
It could be for a full-blown business, or a flexible side income after work/school hours. But you quickly hit a problem: you need money.

I’m a personal finance blogger. I am NOT a personal finance advisor. Have to make this clear, because the former is (too-err-is-to) human while the latter is a collective of best practices taught in an educational setting.
In this post, I thought of a way to show you guys that I make stupid decisions when it comes to finances too: I’ll show you my own. Hopefully you’ll show me yours in the comment, make me feel a bit less stupid.
Here are some stupid purchases I’ve made between January to June 2017.
