5 Tips For Enjoying A Comfortable Babymoon

Your babymoon isn't the time to cross the globe or plan a weeklong road trip. You want your time in the car or plane to be minimal. Choose a place that you can reach through a short flight or reasonable drive. Your choice should give you more time to enjoy your destination while minimizing the discomforts you may feel when you're confined to a small seat with the potential for motion sickness.

Travel at the Right Time

The best time for a babymoon is during your second trimester. By that time, you're usually beyond the queasy morning sickness phase yet still ahead of the too-bloated-to-walk phase. Talk to your obstetrician about your babymoon before you make any travel bookings. While most expectant mothers are fine to travel, only your doctor can OK your trip.

Handle Medical Considerations

Plan ahead for any medical problems that may arise while you're gone. Research hospitals and emergency facilities in the area where you'll be staying so that you know where to go if you need to find a doctor.
Consider investing in a member travel protection program such as MedjetAssist for access to medical transportation, crisis response, and other critical services during your trip. Keep the phone number for your doctor close at hand and make sure your cell phone is always charged so that you're never without helpful advice when you need it.

Book Appropriate Activities

Consider your agenda carefully when you're planning a babymoon. While you want to have fun, you don't want to put too much strain on your body. The babymoon should be a restful vacation, filled with soothing activities. Look for spas that offer services for expectant mothers. Choose a hotel with ground-floor rooms or accommodations near the elevator. Intersperse walking attractions such as a museum or zoo with those that will let you to sit for some time, such as seeing a show at a theater.

Do Your Dining Right

Speak to your obstetrician about which foods you should avoid during your travels. In less developed regions, travel experts generally advise you to avoid street food. Many doctors recommend avoiding certain types of seafood.

Hydration is also critical during your babymoon. Order water with your meals and keep an extra water bottle on hand with you so that you can stay hydrated between meals as well. Allow yourself to indulge, but be smart about your choices to avoid complications later.

A well-planned babymoon will give you the perfect opportunity to rest up for the months ahead. Take this time to treat yourself well and indulge in a leisurely retreat away from home.  And when the baby comes, you can send out baby shower invitations through this website, everything is so easy, they are just a few clicks away.  You can have more tips and information on baby showers for your family and friends in this post.  Once again, congratulations to you and your family on your new arrival of a family member!

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…
