Fun Days Out For The Whole Family

Fun days out can be the bane of any family, especially when young kids are involved. Whether it be planning a day out on a budget, or trying to inspire your children to do great things with educational trips, it can be a tough chore. When looking for a good day out that everyone can enjoy, here is what I look for.


Price:
I’m sure you know the pain of being on a bit of a budget when it comes to getting the family out. There are mouths to feed as well as minds to inspire and keep entertained. Fun days out for kids can be the hardest part of any parent’s job. The best thing to do is to pick something that is not only affordable for your budget, but can be enjoyed by all!

When considering the price; look at what you plan on eating, as this can be the biggest drain on your budget. It could be cheaper to take a picnic for your family - and healthier too!


Activities:
After the price, you need to decide what you want to do with your family. Do you want to get into the great outdoors and do some exploring? Or do you want to do something indoors whilst the rain pours down outside?


You could go out and explore Eilean Donan Castle, or you could go to an indoor play centre and let the kids run themselves tired. Whatever you choose to do to kill some time with the family, make sure it’s fun and enjoyable for all.

Can the whole family get involved?
If the whole family can’t be involved, then what’s the point in going? Right? The best thing about trips to the great outdoors is that everyone can enjoy the walking, climbing and exploring of the day. And the best thing about indoor play centres is that the kids can run riot in a safe environment. And the parents can have fun watching them while sitting back and relaxing over a drink. Whatever you may choose to do, make sure that fun can be had by all. And make sure the kids will be exhausted by the end of the day, allowing you an easy drive home.

Getting there and back:
This has got to be one of the most irritating parts of any day out. How will we all get there? How will we get back? Is it cheaper to take the bus or car? These are all questions that you will likely ask, and should consider. When it comes to the affordability of your day out, ensure that the method of getting about you choose is cost efficient. For instance, maybe taking a cheaper would be better for your purse than taking the family car? Public transport isn’t just better for the environment, but can be an easier, and more affordable, way of getting where you want to go .

These are only some of the things that I keep an eye on when planning a family day out. And if you keep an eye on these factors too, then I’m sure that a fantastic time can be had by all.

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…
