Merry Christmas from ViewQwest!

Merry Christmas everyone!! Greetings from Taipei!

Christmas is undoubtedly one of my favorite occasion of the year. Not only do they have pretty festive lights up all over Singapore, it is also about reconnecting with your loved ones. Singaporeans are always so busy with work, so they tend to not have enough time to catch-up with their family and friends. Especially students like me, who have to juggle both school and work at the same time….. We barely have time to stay at home and spend time with our family.

I remember there was this one Christmas I went to Europe with my aunt to be her translator, and I had to leave my parents alone in Singapore. I ended up Skyping them almost everywhere I go as long as I had spare time because I got so homesick. I’ve never been the kind of girl that sticks to my parents alot…. but Europe is filled with Christmas markets and the festive aura made me feel really really sad not being able to be with my parents on Christmas.

So I taught my mom how to Skype, and I Skype-d her almost everywhere I go, sharing the views through Skype. I remembered no matter how terrible the connection was on my side, I kept retrying until I manage to get connected. This makes me feel extremely thankful for the 1Gbps Fibernet I have right now back at home. Ensuring smooth streaming, and video calls without any fears of interruption or lag!

So I am really glad I have this opportunity to spend Christmas with my family overseas this year! At least this assures that we are totally away from work, and we could spend quality time together!

And of course, how can we forget about Christmas feast! I’ve been watching Food Network on my ViewQwest 4k Media Player so much I swear I can open a restaurant already, hahaha! I’m just kidding! I really do learnt quite a bit of recipes from the website though! I did add a little tinge of Singaporean flavor to it by changing my pasta into maggie mee…….. Alright, that is actually quite an unfortunate event because my pack of fussili suddenly had beetles in it, so I had to replace my pasta with maggie mee in the nick of time…. :(

Looking pretty yummy

Alright, that’s all for today. Have a great Christmas all of you!!

In the Mood for the Holidays!

Hey guys! I have an announcement to make!

I am going on a vacationnnnnn! Like f i n a l l y. The last time I travelled was a year and a half back. I’ve been so busy with school ever since, I didn’t exactly get any spare time to plan a getaway for myself. Good thing for this year’s Christmas, I am going on a trip with my family! It’s the season of sharing and gathering, how can I leave my parents alone in Singapore?

Everything was pretty much impromptu. Mom decided she wants to travel, and next thing I know, I was on the net surfing for the best fares and hotel deals. You know how convenient it is these days? Just log on to the net and type it in, everything pretty much shows up within seconds! Especially with the rise of budget airlines, Singaporeans can easily plan for getaways any time, anywhere! So I booked tickets for 4 to Taiwan over the Christmas and New Year weekend!


Just planning my itinerary ;)
Planning my itinerary, this trip is gonna be awesome!

That aside, other then booking flights to Taiwan, I’ve also booked myself a staycation at Studio M Hotel for the New Year to unwind for a bit. There were so many beautiful and hip boutique hotels that I was considering! super cool!

Anyway, boutique hotels are really popular with Singaporeans these days. Many people opt for local staycation instead because of time constrains and all the hassle they have to go through traveling overseas. With that said, ViewQwest is also giving away 2D1N Staycation at Naumi Liora Hotel, worth $250 with every sign-up now until 31 dec!

That’s not all! If you’re feeling the generous, in the spirit of giving this Christmas, you can skip our Naumi Liora staycation and make a donation to REACH Community Services Society instead.


As for me, I am going to be away from town for a couple of weeks to recuperate all the lost sleep and life, haha. Thank goodness to ViewQwest‘s epic fast fibernet and Freedom VPN though! For all the awesome dramas I can download before I fly off.




Now I have my 4 hours flight filled with entertainment, I don’t have to be afraid of not being able to find things to entertain myself on my flight anymore, hahahahaha!

So what’s your plan for this holiday season? :)
