Knowing How To Drive With Efficiency In Mind

One of your main expenses as a driver is the fuel. That much goes without saying. Unfortunately, fuel is often expensive, and there is very little that you or I can do about that. Nonetheless, there are steps you can take to keep your fuel use down. Mostly, this is a matter of learning to drive efficiently. Driving with efficiency in mind is actually pretty simple once you know how. The quickest ways to waste fuel is to speed needlessly, rapidly accelerate and brake again and again. Avoiding these will make a huge difference alone. Also, cruising at around 50mph is ideal if you are looking to save pennies on that fuel.


Basic Maintenance

There is nothing worse than having to take your car to the garage. However, it is not just about keeping your car from being seriously damaged. Keeping up the basic maintenance on your vehicle also helps to keep fuel consumption down. Make sure you keep your engine oil topped up, as this can make a huge difference here. It is also a good idea to keep an eye on your tyre pressures, as if they are low you can end up using more fuel. Also, treat your car to a service every now and then. Spending money on a service will actually save you money in the long run.

Insurance is one of the bigger expenses for any driver, and knowing how to shop around is hugely important. When you are choosing insurance, think carefully about all the different types of insurance that you can have. It might be that you do not have any need for comprehensive, for example. It all depends on your situation. Carefully choosing your insurance could make a big difference to your overall spendings. You might want to compare the quality car insurance provided by Belairdirect with other providers who suit your needs.


Save On Repairs The Easy Way

You can save a great deal on repairs in your car by simply knowing exactly what your car needs and when. Too much money is wasted because people do not understand their cars well enough. So, ensure that you work towards learning your vehicle as well as possible. Also, consider cutting out the hard braking. This is one of the most common culprits of all.

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
