Tips for Making Business Travel More Enjoyable

 If you have a job which involves doing a lot of travelling, you might start to feel tired, worn out and a little fed up from being away from home all the time. Whether it’s travel overseas or working away in the UK, spending long periods away from loved ones and those endless nights in lonely hotel rooms can take its toll. Here’s some top tips to help make your business travel life more enjoyable:

1                 1)  Explore
If you’re constantly moving around touring different parts of the country then there’s no excuse not to explore. Do some research on the place you’re heading to in advance and make a list of local attractions, independent restaurants and the sights you’d like to see. In your spare time, head out to see all these different things and time away from home will pass much more quickly than if you spend it sat in the hotel room the whole time.

2                  2)  Surprise Family and Friends
Keeping in touch with family and friends is now easier than ever before so whilst you’re away remind them that you’re thinking about them by sending them gifts. With domestic delivery services like the ones at TNT available for such great prices, you’ll be able to send them home a welsh cake from Swansea, or a delicious Bakewell Tart from Derbyshire, even a fridge magnet from a local landmark or a souvenir from a museum, to let them know you’re thinking about them.

                     3)  Travel with Your Home Comforts
One thing is for sure, living in hotel rooms you do start to miss your home comforts, so always be sure to pack the essentials when you’re going away on business. From your favourite fluffy slippers to your own dressing gown and favourite brand of tea bags, with your home comforts at hand you’ll be sure to feel a lot less lonely. There’s nothing like a few chocolate Hob Nobs and a cup of tea to make you feel right at home.

By following these tips on your next business trip, hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy your time away from home a lot more and the time should whizz by a lot faster. The homelier you make your time away the quicker it will go and before you know it, it will be time to head back home again.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...

Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice!
