When I was first invited for AirAsia’s Taylor Swift RedHot Party, I had one concern – my flight on Sunday is at 6:45am in the morning. That really gave me quite a lot to worry about since it’s advisable to be at the airport 3 hours before departure! I had a few options to consider – did a lot of research and these were the options I have!

1) Take a cab from the city and pay rm130 – 150 at least since it’s way past midnight – or I might not be able to hail a cab at that hour!

2) Take the earliest bus from KL Sentral at 3am in the morning – it’s not expensive but I still need to find a cab or someone to send me to KL Sentral – plus I might arrive too late in KLIA2 for checkin – what if the bus is late? What if this and that ~~~ *headache la*

Option 3 never crossed my mind until I receive this invite in the mail.


Take a rm8 bus from KL sentral to KLIA2 and stay overnight in Tune Hotel for a hassle worry free night! I must really thank Tune Hotels for inviting me and this immediately became the best option! The best part – a free night’s stay at the newly opened Tune Hotels KLIA2 – I recently wrote a blog post about how convenient it is to stay at Tune Hotels KLIA2 and how to actually get to your baggage drop counter from Tune Hotel KLIA2 the fastest way ~~ You should check this out!

I’m a regular customer of Tune Hotels – having stayed in KL, Penang, Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, Hat Yai, Malate and Makati in Manila branches. Affordable, comfortable and safe accommodation for the budget traveller like me. Tune Hotels KLIA2 branch does look stunning not only from the outside --

The lounge is pretty fancy as well – while you’re waiting to check in or checking out ~ a good place to hang around with your ipad or laptops. The best part? You can check in to Air Asia flights and print your boarding pass at this very lounge!

This is indeed the fanciest Tune Hotel I had stayed in. It’s a great pleasure to be one of the earliest people in the world to be staying in this newly opened hotel. Thanks Tune Hotels for the invite!

This is my room with double bed – I love the beds and pillows they provide – despite the affordable prices – the beds they used are very good quality and gives you a very good sleep. For more pictures and reviews of the hotel room click here

I checked in early so I had a good chance to peer through my window and saw the setup for the Pyjamas party – lot’s of bean bags for us to chill and get cosy cosy ~

I had the pleasure to meet and speak briefly with Nicole Travel Bug from Australia but didn’t get to talk with Morgan Garcera and Juanderful Pinoy (not in this photo) from the Philippines. Would love to sit down and chat with them more if I have the chance!



Instagram travel senstations @explorerjonpro and Melissa Koh @melissackoh were also celebrity guests at the event.

I only got to meet Jon when one of my readers pointed out to me in my instagram updates that he’s a famous instagram celebrity – I was about to tell her I didn’t see him while I was exiting the lift – and as fate would have it – walked into the lift with Jon and Melissa! I simply must take a picture with him – I didn’t take a picture with Melissa though – was a bit shy shy haha ~

Last but not least – got to meet Mark Lankester – CEO of Tune Hotels. He’s so friendly in person and it’s an inspiration to be in the same party as him!

All parties must come to an end and I’m glad to be able to meet new friends from this party! Thank you Tune Hotels for inviting me and Air Asia for flying me over to Kuala Lumpur! I had a good few hours nap till 4pm before walking just 7 minutes to my baggage drop counter!
