A big part of making a living with social media platforms is consistency, time, and hard work to build a network. And unpaid time into research and reading on a particular topic (in my case is often food related, this is what I build from scratch and from ground up because unlike traditional journalist, bloggers don’t immediately have an audience to write for, nor a monthly pay slip from the day they start producing their content). And very often, I find the research info before any content production an accumulative knowledge to understand and learn about the past, present and future.
If there is anything I appreciate most from the recent works with the #YTLHotels is their effort to continuously preserve and educate. I especially posted plenty about the Kristang community from my #YTLNomad engagement because I do see how every broadcasts may contribute to keeping this heritage alive. When receiving this press kit on their upcoming San Pedro’s Night, I never hesitated to agree to post this press release, and I do hope that more people would be more interested to learn about the Kristang community.
Here’s a repost of their media kit:

About The Majestic Malacca
Located on the banks of the river which in yesteryear teemed with Chinese junks and spice-laden vessels from all over the world, The Majestic Malacca provides a glimpse into the splendid saga of an extraordinary empire in a UNESCO World Heritage site. Steeped in a rich tapestry of multicultural influences reflected in its heritage architecture, diverse lifestyle and eclectic cuisine, this classic hotel is an integral part of Malacca’s colourful history. The heart of the hotel is a restored 1920s Straits Settlement mansion complete with its original porcelain tile flooring and teakwood fittings. It has been sympathetically extended to house 54 guest rooms and suites as well as an award-winning spa that is a reflection of that era, melding luxury, modernity and tradition.
