This covers everything from your clothes, to your hair, and to the rest of your body that’s people can see or even smell (like your breath and body odour!).

Balik Kampung - Rent or Drive Your Own?

The festive season is just around the corner. For many of us, that means long drives back to our hometowns in our cars, packed with family members and relatives, sitting in terrible jams in every direction on the nation's main highways.

What if, instead of driving your own car, you used someone else’s vehicle instead? Sure, you could try and borrow a car from a close friend or relative, but that could be an awkward conversation trying to convince someone to lend you their car for a long road trip.
