Metro Planner To The Rescue Travel Plans

When I returned from my free and easy Europe trip last year, many of my friends were amazed that I managed to go for my three weeks holiday on wheelchair.  They asked me lots of questions, from the time I boarded the plane, transit at Amsterdam and proceeded Aberdeen, Scotland.  Thinking back, I also wondered how I got through that three weeks holidays with a cast on my leg.  Two days prior to my Europe trip, I had a fall one evening, landed in hospital for one night and the next morning I was discharged with an advice from the doctor, no walking or running for the next six months.  Yes, my ankle had a crack that needed operation but I did not go ahead with it because I was looking forward to my planned Europe trip!

To cut the story short, I flew to Aberdeen for ten days to rest and relax under the watchful eyes of my son and my friend.  After the ten days, we flew to Aberdeen and from there, we visited another three countries, all on our own!  I give all credit to my son who has planned from A to Z, flights, transport, accommodation and places to visit.  He has done a lot of "travel homework" before the trip and everything has gone on very smoothly.  I did not do anything at all, just sit back and relax and be "pushed" on wheels.

For many of us who love to travelling on our own time and pleasure, it is now made easy with a Metro Planner.  No more worries about getting lost in a new place or where to go next, we can actually refer to this Metro Planner.  It helps to plan our trips so that we have nothing else to worry anymore.  All we have to do is to decide when and where we are going to travel, choose a date and time suitable for us.  After choosing our starting landmark, we choose on where we want to go.  That is what my son did too when he planned our holiday in Amsterdam followed by Frankfurt, Paris and Brussels

How to use Metro Planner?  Just log into their website, there is more info here.  Briefly on how to use, keep these information tips in mind.

Be as detailed as possible, for example, enter the address of the place we are going to, input it in the planner.  We can also choose landmark categories such as the name of the malls or beaches so that we know which station is near our destination.  We can also choose the mode of travel, either the rail or bus systems, just key in what we opt for.  And not only that, we can also decide which fare class we belong to, there are appropriate discounts to be given accordingly.

There are a lot more of details and information written in their website which I find rather useful for avid travellers like you and me.  Trips which we like to plan on our own without following those guided tours which used to stress me up especially during the morning calls.  I like to travel on my own pleasure and leisure these days especially now at my age.  In fact a lot of people love to travel on their own time and going to places where guided tours never take us before.  Blend in with the locals, go to places where locals go, eat at the places where locals eat, this is what I call a Real Holiday!

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...
