Holiday Plans To Broome, Australia

Just few days ago, I received an email from an online booking company on accommodation all over the world, stating that I have a credit of $27 in my account and it will be expiring in September this year.  I accumulated that credit from my last year Europe tours where I stayed in some homestyle accommodation. Without hesitation, I forwarded this email to my son, he loves to travel and perhaps this year, he will take me somewhere again!  (Hope he is reading this part!)

It would be great if we could spend some time holidaying as a family again.  On my part, there is no restrictions anymore since I have retired from my job, I can go anywhere and anytime I like.  Yes, we have made some plans to go traveling and since there are four of us, one has suggested going to Switzerland and another wanted to go Perth.  Come on, budget, guys!  Going somewhere too far will burn a hole in the pocket definitely... hahahaa....
Perth is pretty near to our country and the weather is almost the same, I told my son.  Why not go somewhere where we can experience the cooling weather and yet it is not too far to fly?  My suggestion to them is Broome, Australia!  Why Broome?   Well, I am one who opts for holidays that offer relaxation and comfort.  I do not like to hustle and bustle life of a city, they stress me up pretty badly, contrary to Broome, it sounds like the kind of holiday I would like to go to.  Here is what I did....


The very first thing I clicked on this website is the accommodation in Broome.  From here, I can check out how their rooms look like and of course, their rates as well.  All I need to do is to key in our date of checking in and out and the rates for each night will be clearly shown.  And I am so glad that I like what I see here!


For a family of four, there is a range of accommodation that cater us, either we prefer the basic family rooms or king studios, the cost of the accommodation is within our budget and yet, the rooms look so comfortable. The rooms are equipped with complete amenities that include a full kitchen for us to prepare our own meals if we do not want to eat out all the time.
This is a Basic Family Room for four persons.  It comes with 1 separate bedroom with a queen bed and a living area which contains 2 single beds with 2 trundle beds.  There is a small kitchen fully equipped with facilities such as the microwave/convection oven, hotplates for cooking, fridge, kettle, toaster, crockery and all other necessary utensils for cooking and taking our meals.  The room is fully air-conditioned, comes with a TV, DVD player and multiple free to air channels too!
 Towards the evening we can walk along the beach or have a nice relaxing time at the swimming pool which is filled with tranquility.  Apart from the pool where we can have BBQ with our friends, there is a quaint Art Gallery featuring works from many Kimberley artists for art lovers.  Apart from these, there is easy access via Broome Bus Service to many Broome resorts, tourist attractions, restaurants, galleries, shops and of course, beautiful and romantic beaches!

Well, after checking out the information and details, the next thing I do is to forward this post or the website to my kids.  Hope they will give the "green light" and once they do, there will be no turning back!  :)

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?
Our fir…

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…
