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!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
