2013 Travel Advisory Against South Korea

Since 2009, we're having an annual vacation abroad as a sort of treat for daughter after each school year.  We've been to Hong kong (2009), Thailand (2010), Singapore (2011) and Malaysia (2012).  This year, we're scheduled to travel to South Korea. We already have our visas and booked our flight on April 17, 2013.  Our accommodation was already arranged as well.  But because of the recent development in the Korean Peninsula, I'm still not sure if the scheduled vacation in South Korea will be pushed through.

The Philippines has not yet issued travel advisory against South Korea. The same thing is true with Malaysia, Singapore and the US.  In the absence of travel advisory, this means we are still allowed to travel.  But is it safe?  Is it worth it?  I don't know.

When we first traveled to Hong Kong, there's this swine flu scare.  But we still traveled as scheduled.  When I first went to Cambodia, there's this Thailand-Cambodia border conflict.  And, oh,  when we were in Singapore, there's this prediction of the end of the world.

swine flu scare


We'll probably push through with the scheduled vacation. Unless of course if there's a travel advisory against South Korea in the next few days. We'll probably add missile gazing in our itinerary. Bahala na.

Facebook Ads Results

My $10 Facebook ads lasted for 3 days and here's the results:

From 289 people who saw my post, it ballooned to 11,748.  This resulted to additional 53 Page Likes, 8 clicks to the link going to www.gatewaytocanada.com, and 104 Page Post Likes.

If by placing ads on Facebook is just to promote the page, it definitely is not bad.  It greatly helps promote the business.  But with only 8 link clicks, it wouldn't really help Adsense income.

Facebook Ads Experiement

 I experimented with Facebook ads to check if it will help increase traffic to my Canadian Immigration Consultancy blog.  Traffic to this site dramatically went down and is affecting my Adsense income.  I only alloted US$10 for this experiment and if it worked, I will do this regularly.

The US$10 I used here came from Intelilinks income. ;-)
