Planning your Holiday at Work Just Got Easier

Kayak has been spying on you, and has come back with handsome results! Kayak has just recently launched Desktop Escape, an app that makes travel planning easier when you’re using your desktop computers. Travel is Singaporeans’ favourite daydream pill, as the results of a recent survey show. Singaporeans tend to book their travels during working hours, espeically between 1 to 3pm with top destinations being Bangkok (my favourite), Taipei and Seoul.

If you’re already using Kayak, you just need to take it one step further by downloading the app. And if you having used Kayak before, what are you waiting for? And now, if we can just figure out how to hide this app from the bosses…

Walking can help you earn a mile!

Mileslife, the app that awards you miles through everyday dining and spending, has launched Mileslife Health! The new function rewards users with bonus miles upon completion of activity targets in a bid to motivate Singaporeans to hit their recommended step count every day, starting from 5,000 steps onward.

How it works

  1. A minimum of 5,000 steps is required each day to redeem airline miles with the next tier of rewards at 10,000 and 20,000 steps. The more you walk, the more miles you’ll earn.
  2. Steps will be reset at midnight each day; miles must be redeemed in the Mileslife app before midnight SGT (UTC +8).
  3. An additional 10 miles will be awarded every week if the number of accumulated steps redeemed in one week exceeds 100,000 steps.
  4. On top of earning miles from hitting the daily steps target, double the miles when you spend with the Mileslife app.

Full terms and conditions are available on the app. Download the app at
