Our Story

We are Andrew and Syeng, a husband and wife coming from the art and design background based in Singapore.

We love to explore aesthetic home, lodging, and insta-worthy cafe. While we were doing design research for our first Airbnb – Artsy Guesthouse. We found out there are many unique and artful lodgings throughout Malaysia. Some of them are not well discovered, which could be buried by the fierce competition on the booking platforms. Hence, we founded Placefu, a curated directory for traveller to discover aesthetic Placefu lodging and places.

Since then, Placefu started to curate lodging and places i-e cafes, each with their own uniqueness and reflecting the diversity of Malaysia’s wonderful culture. 

While Placefu may be a side hustle for us, we found joy in helping travellers to find unique or aesthetic places to eat, drink and stay whether it’s a a restaurant, a homestay, a hostel, or even a boutique hotel

So, we collaborate with the business owners around Malaysia, uniting a community who loves hosting guests and travellers as well as making their places different from the others.
