Here's Everything You Need To Go Travelling In America!

If you’re lucky enough to be on a gap year or in between jobs, then you may be making the most of your time off by travelling to America. However, before you set off on your epic adventure, you must be sure to plan everything meticulously to ensure you make the most of your time there. Fear not, this needn’t be too difficult. Here’s everything you need in order to go travelling in The States.

Plane Tickets 
The hardest part about travelling is saving up for it in the first place. Hopefully, you’ve got a load of savings stashed away in your bank account. However, if you’re not that fortunate, then you’re going to need to find a way to pay for your plane tickets. Flying anywhere can be expensive, but especially to America - as it’s such a big place! Look on flight comparison websites such as Sky Scanner to find the best deal and book as far in advance as possible to save yourself that extra bit of money. If you’re not sure which state to fly to, then check out our travel guides.


Social Media
Once you’re out there, you’re going to need somewhere to post your awesome snaps and selfies to! Be sure to have Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts set up ready for your epic adventure. Did you even go if there are no photos? That’s what people will ask back home! Make sure you flood your friends’ feeds with epic holiday snaps! Take a dedicated camera for taking pictures of all the great landmarks you will come across, too. Be sure to get a data SIM for the time you’re away. That way, you’ll save money on roaming costs and be able to Snapchat all of your incredible experiences.

Car 
Getting about in America can definitely be costly, so it may be worth hiring a car if public transport looks like too much of a hefty cost! Car rental needn’t be expensive either. Many companies will let you hire a car on one coast and return it on the other at an alternative outlet. How handy!? Getting a car also enables you to go on a road trip and experience some of America’s incredible, lengthy routes. If worst comes to worst, you can always sleep in the back of your vehicle, too! That’ll save you some cash for your entrance into Disney World!

Cash
You might find yourself a bit short of money when travelling. So there are two ways to go about dealing with this. You could either postpone your travel, if you have the time to do so. That way, you could work solidly at home for twelve months, saving almost all of your money, before jetting off. Alternatively, you could wing it, which is a very popular method for travellers. This is because it allows them to immerse themselves into American society more authentically. Getting a small job at a bar or cafe can easily pay the bills for a hostel to stay in. At places like this, you may meet like-minded people who you could go on to travel with.


That’s everything you need to know, folks! Enjoy your travels.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
