Round the World Trips: Top Five Must-See Spots


A round the world trip can be found on most people’s agendas, whether it’s just a pipe dream or something that is becoming a reality. In this day and age, with the economy the way it is, people aren’t always able to globe trot but if you’ve got a slush fund that has ‘vacation’ written all over it, take the opportunity to take your annual leave and fly with it.
Depending on how many destinations you decide to see during your trip, it’s possible to enjoy a round the world trip without risking losing your job. By taking 2 or 3 weeks off work, just like you would for a summer jaunt in the Canaries, you can see much more of the world than you could ever imagine seeing in one go. Take your pick from some of these must-see locales. 

South East Asia
Whether it’s Thailand holidays that take your fancy or you’re hoping to stop by Vietnam during your trip, South East Asia has plenty of incredible options to add to your itinerary. From scuba diving off the coast of Phuket to spending an afternoon in the hustle and bustle of the Philippine capital, Manila, there’s something for everyone.
You can’t beat this corner of the world for azure waters, golden sands and tranquil coves. If you want to enjoy your own piece of paradise, make sure South East Asia is part of your schedule. 

Australia
Heading down under is one of the most popular additions to a round the world itinerary and it’s easy to see why. Its cities, such as Sydney, are rich in culture and experience while Queensland offers a perfect opportunity to be at one with nature with tropical rain forests of Cape Tribulation meeting the golden sands and the Great Barrier Reef within moments.
Head inland to the Outback for a chance to ogle Uluru while also catching sight of the proud Aboriginal natives. 

South America
A hub for adventure, South America is full of Bucket List-worthy itinerary fillers. From trekking through the jungle to embark on the Inca Trail to discover Machu Picchu, to feasting your eyes on the incredible sight of the Angel Falls in Venezuela, South America is a perfect addition to any round the world plans.
Of course, let’s not forget the other continents and subcontinents – Africa and India are full of hidden gems which beg to be added to your once in a lifetime adventure. You just have to research and decide on which ideas suit you and your dreams.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
