We found out recently that due to some travel delays on our way to Hanoi, our favorite low-cost carrier has credited us with a 400 ringgit voucher (a little more than $130 US dollars).  That might not sound like much, but when some flights on Air Asia are as low as 10 ringgit, all of Southeast Asia becomes our oyster.
