My last summer trip to Europe was literally sizzling. Extreme heat warnings have been issued, and the temperature went past 40 degrees Celsius. Eleven countries were affected, including Italy, where we have been staying since June. We sought refuge in the slightly cooler temperature of the Apennine Mountains instead of the planned trip to the southern part of Italy. When my husband Gabriele announced that we are driving to Croatia for a week by the sea, he was met with less enthusiasm than expected simply because we did not want to leave our cool, darkened rooms behind stone walls. The trip was a five-hour drive from Bologna, passing through Slovenia, and finally hitting the resort town of Opatija. Baking under the heat of the sun did not sound fun at all. But, as you would have predicted by now, Croatia is every bit as breathtaking as the the travel books and blogs say. And the trip? Definitely worth it! Opatija, a tiny resort town nicknamed “Pearl of the Adriatic,” … [Read more...] about This Croatian coastal town by the Adriatic Sea can be your next summer escape

APEC summit: The Xi show by the sea shore Andrew Beatty (Agence France-Presse) - November 14, 2018 - 4:57pm PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea — Hundreds of fluttering red flags, buses emblazoned with "China Aid" logos and even a purpose-built pagoda: driving around Port Moresby, you could be forgiven for thinking that Xi Jinping is hosting this week's APEC summit of Asia-Pacific leaders. US President Donald Trump's decision to skip the summit in Papua New Guinea has allowed the Chinese leader to take centre stage, an opportunity that Beijing is seizing with relish. Xi will embark on a state visit a day before the rest of the delegates descend on this dusty sun-baked city -- and host a meeting with Pacific leaders -- a schedule designed to emphasise growing Chinese influence in the region. On Friday, he is expected to open a new road and be treated to a traditional "sing sing" -- a tribal welcome complete with Birds … [Read more...] about APEC summit: The Xi show by the sea shore

SINGAPORE: For something that used to be available every week, promotional codes for discounted fares on bookings from ride-hailing giant Grab have slowed to a trickle lately for Ms Michelle Joseph. The last promo code – an alphanumerical string that can be keyed into the app to redeem limited discounts – for a S$5 discount was more than a fortnight ago, according to the frequent Grab user. But it had limited appeal, given that it came with a condition. “It could only be activated after a (full-fare) ride and usage is limited,” said Ms Joseph, who takes at least one ride via Grab per day and has reached the highest member status of Platinum. “Now, it’s been more than two weeks and I haven’t received other promotions. It used to be weekly promos without fail,” she added. In recent years, commuters in Singapore have enjoyed generous promotions as ride-hailing giants Uber and Grab tussled for market share.
