Cortana and Favorite Places

A few months ago we've seen Cortana provide "heads up" departure reminders based on traffic conditions. But, these were only for your "Home" and "Work".

However, just recently, Cortana gave me pleasant surprise by telling me to leave in advance for a place which is listed neither as my home or work place!

A few tests show that it also works for other places listed in Cortana's notebook or in the Bing Favorite Places. Kinda neat and just about time before Christmas season!

Looks like our friends at Microsoft has been onto some backend polishing and upgrading. Has anyone else noticed this?
