Kids Two-Wheels Bicycle Practice

Today is public holiday thanks to Diwali! So I spent time with my kids and let them learn by themselves riding bicycle with 2 wheels. No more support wheels!

Deef with few tries managed to ride 2 wheels.

Lisha fall down and cried. She went inside the house. I thought she gave up. After few minutes, she came out and tried again. I respect her attitude for not giving up.

When Hadeef saw Lisha crying, he said his remarkable words. “Cry won’t solve your problem”.

After they finished practicing, Lisha showed her bruise on her knee.

Genting Highland Pahang AirBnb Occupancy Rate

I bought one condominium at Windmill Upon Hills last year. I want to do AirBnb.

Interesting Places in Genting Highland

  • 20th Century Fox Theme Park
  • Genting Premier Outlets
  • Strawberry Farms
  • Colmar Tropicale
  • Organic Farm
  • Zouk

and few more.

Now my next concern what would be the occupancy rate of Genting Highland AirBnb.
To do that, I compare with Midhill condominium as it is already completed and similar concept with Windmill Upon Hills and owners already rent them out as AirBnb units.

AirBnb Occupancy

I calculate how many days a unit is occupied in a month. A unit is occupied if on the day it is strike through.

Genting Highland AirBnb Occupancy Rate

Then I compiled few units and calculate average occupancy rate and I did it for few months.

statistics genting highland airbnb occupancy rate as of 4/11/2018
statistics genting highland airbnb occupancy rate as of 4/11/2018

Conclusion

Occupancy rate is still low around 35%, maybe 20th Century Theme is not yet opened.

It is way off from my estimation of 90% plus from my previous post Genting Rooms Occupancy Rate Estimation

I noticed there are agents who manage the AirBnB units (have same owners for different units) which is good for me as in long term I plan to outsource my AirBnb unit management.
