The first time I heard of this word before, most probably was a couple of years ago. It didnt make any sense at first as I never had a staycation. Wikipedia says the meaning of staycation is “a vacation spent in one’s home country rather than abroad, or one spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions.”
I always feel that a staycation is more of having a holiday at a place near to your home. Which, actually was what we did during the new year.
Hotel rooms elsewhere were expensive, air fares were not doing any better and we hated the fact that the traffic will be so bad on the returning day that we might need another holiday.
And so…..G booked us in Marriot Putrajaya for the night. We decided to walk the mall, enjoy with a little bit of shopping and finally some dinner. I tell you, Malaysians generally enjoy their mall experience. IOI Mall which is located near to the hotel is no different from other huge malls in KL. It was packed to the brim. People at every turn.
Being non social animals that we are, we decided that for end of 2017, we will check in elsewhere where there are less people within 50 km radius…
