Wogoxette Upstair, Airbnb in Kuala Terla, Cameron Highland
Haha! Nothing much, I’m not a professional designer or something. Just do it the way I think it’s nice and functional. My colleague Marcus is crazy about Instagram. He taught me the word “Instaworthy”. I thought this is an interesting term so I use it as a guide in all the design, ensuring all parts of the house are Instaworthy.
We manage it on our own. We don’t believe in hiring someone to run it on behalf because it loses the local touches of our Airbnb home in Kuala Terla
Yes! I’ve learned so much from many hosts around the world.
99% of my guests were incredible! Only 1% was a crazy one. The 1% who were racist, disrespectful and rude. haha
Many came as a guest but left as a friend. We kept in touch even after so many years.
Opportunity: I have received a few requests from homeowners to help to gentrify their homes.
Obstacles: So far so good haha! There wasn’t any thus far. Thank goodness! My goal for all the lodgings was to preserve the original look and design of the property, retaining the good memories from the past, to allow people of today reminiscing the good old days.
Heahtitude came into reality partly because of Wogoxette Upstairs too. There were many solo travellers looking to experience village life as well.
Wogoxette Upstairs wasn’t able to fulfil that opportunity as it suits better for family or a group of friends. Heahtitude was born to fill up that gap.
Oh yeah, the bicycle was an important memory for the owner of the house. The son used the bicycle to attend classes, tuition and school. Sadly it has been abandoned since then. It has become rusty.
I felt that the good memories should be retained in the house so I have asked the owner for the permission to use it and convert it into a light for the main living hall.
The hanging bicycle light was positioned in line with the trophies to bring back the great memories happened in the house back then.
My village also has a serene tea plantation trail that tourists do not know about.
Yes, believe it or not, my village has the best Chicken Chop in the whole wide world! No joke haha! Other food would be Kuala Terla Temple Eats and Poh Wan’s Home Dining.
Ahh… I need to travel a bit before working on the next one 😉
