Travel Promotions


My kids and I have already decided where and when our next trip will be and that will be two months after my retirement early next year.  In fact we have bought our air tickets and I will disclose our destination when the time comes.  Still a long way to go but I can feel the excitement in me already!  :)

Meanwhile we are now making plans on how to go and where to go when we reach the place.  There are so much to plan, accommodation is already booked so we can strike it off our checklist.  We will be going for a seven days trip and we are doing some research online on which are the places worth visiting when we arrive.  Better get everything planned up so that time will not be wasted and making our trip memorable as much as possible.

During our last trip to Melbourne at the beginning of this year, we also made our plans beforehand.  We checked out the daily tours and which days to take so that the trip would not be too tiring and stressful.  I love the last two days in Melbourne, relaxing and strolling along the streets with our own free time.  And most of all, one place not to be missed is the Sealife Aquarium which was within walking distance from our apartment.  We were given free passes because of the day trips we had booked on earlier.  That is why it is always beneficial to check out promotion tours online in advance especially those which offers free entrance passes to sight seeing places.

Take for instance, if you are visiting Miami, do you know that you can print out one of their
Miami Seaquarium tickets from their website?  You can actually save 20% on the tickets by printing out the Smartsave coupon and presenting it when you are buying the tickets or another alternative, you can even take a picture of the coupon and save it on your cell phone.  Either way, you will get to save 20% off the entrance tickets.  The best thing is that this coupon is valid for one to six people!
I am indeed attracted to this Miami Seaquarium, there are so many attractions to enjoy.  Among them are the Flipper Lagoon where we can watch dolphins walk on water, Manatee Exhibition where we will learn all about the sea life objects or even the Stingray Touch Pool whereby we an reach in and touch the Southern and Cow-nose stingrays.  Oh, I would love to view the 200 pound sharks during feeding time too!  Well, these are a few among the many attractions and I will certainly look more into them when I plan to go there the next time!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
