How The Other Half Travel

By the other half, we mean the richy rich. We all end up in the same destination, but the types of holidays we have are completely different. When you think about how the other half holiday, you might imagine a butler waiting on them hand and foot, a car to take them wherever they want, and the most luxurious hotel room. Well, you’re not really far off. But whilst we assume we can’t achieve a holiday like this, it’s time to think about whether you actually might be able to. How the other half travel is slightly more expensive, but if you save like you usually would do for a holiday, with just a little bit of extra effort, you could easily afford that lavish holiday, and have a taste of how the other half travel. Here’s a little bit of information to show you how a holiday for the other half goes down.


Travelling In Style

Travelling in style is something they really do know how to do best. Forget going economy on a Ryanair flight, they really do splash the cash and go all out. But when you’re going on a longhaul flight, you do want to be in the most comfort that you can possibly be in. So, always check out what the first class situation is like, or at least what the business class is like. It will be expensive, there’s no denying that. But the price you pay for the comfort and treatment of first class is going to be more than worth it. Think seats that lie down to go into a comfy bed, free drinks all throughout the flight, as much food as you want… the list could go on. A lot of them even chose to hire private jets. Now, whether this is out of your price range or not, it’s a cool thing to consider. You can learn more about where you might be able to take a private jet to, you’d be surprised at the number of airports that accept them! You’ll also want to take a look at the prices too. If you were to do that, it really would have to be a once in a lifetime thing, but you would definitely be travelling in style if you opted for that. If not, then first class or business class should do the trick.

Luxurious Locations

This really is something that the other half know how to do best. The amount of locations that they end up in around the world is just incredible. Let’s start with possibly one of the most amazing, and definitely the most dreamy. You’ve got Bora Bora for one. It’s a statement of luxury, and one that only a select few people get to go to. You know the pictures with the huts sitting above the most crystal blue waters, with a bathroom looking out over the sea, and a bed so big you could fit a whole family in? Well, there are some people who actually get to experience that. A holiday to Bora Bora is perhaps one of the most expensive. A minimum spend of around £3000 per person is needed for just a week, and that will be for a very basic package. If you wanted to go all out, you would need around double that… per person. So now you see why it’s a holiday pretty much only suited for the rich and for the lucky.

Luxurious Treatment

The other half wouldn’t settle for anything less. The places that they chose to go will all have 5* treatment available, and that’s what they’ll want. Out of the three, this is definitely something you’re going to be able to to afford. Simple holidays in a 5* hotel will give you the best treatment in the world, and will offer some of the most amazing facilities as well. All you have to be sure of is that you’re willing to spend a couple of hundred extra to get this type of treatment. You can expect free messages whenever you want, breakfast in bed, a fresh room every day, and drinks being brought to you whilst you’re lounging around the pool. A package holiday with a 5* hotel really won’t be that expensive. Just make sure you’re shopping around to get the best deal, and always go all inclusive if you want a little taste of luxury… and to save a little money!

So, now you see how the other half travel, and how it might not be that hard for you to do the same!

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
