I am using a compact camera. I would love to own a dslr camera as the pictures are much better than a compact camera. Furthermore, a compact camera has limited optical zoom such as mine with only 4x. However, dslr camera is expensive in Malaysia. One advantage of compact camera is that it is small and easy to carry around.
In Malaysia, Airasia is the most popular budget airline. Most of their flights are within the 1-4 hours range. They do offer rock-bottom prices frequently. These are cheaper than their normal charges. Such flights will take off either very early in the morning or late at night. I had experienced taking a flight at 2am and arriving at my destination at 6am. I really hate travelling at such hours but this is the only way to save on flight charges - and this is also why I am doing less travel now. The normal cost airline is too expensive.
