Safety on Deck: Things to Consider

It doesn’t matter whether you’re on a beach holiday in the Balearics or sailing on a cruise ship through the Caribbean Sea, your personal safety is always going to be of paramount importance.  While the crime rate may be lower than perusing the busy streets of a thriving capital city, you can never be too sure and, as always, it’s better to be safe than sorry. 
 
Your personal safety is always going to be one of the main things you should consider when booking your holiday. Whether you’re aboard the Adventure of the Seas or strolling through a Turkish bazaar, as long as you have a bit of common sense and keep your wits about you, you can’t really go far wrong. 

Use your Safe
Anything you don’t need during your trip – passports, tickets, wads of cash – pop it all into the safe in your cabin and leave it there. It’s far safer doing this, than carrying it about on your person. Imagine if you left your bag somewhere on board and it wasn’t handed in? You could lose it all. 

Don’t Take Valuables
Do you really need that expensive watch or that platinum necklace during your cruise holiday? They may be pretty and something to flaunt, but they’re best kept at home without the risk of loss.

Be Careful
While the crime rate may be low, it’s always possible to be a victim of pickpocketing, especially when you’re off the ship and exploring the ports of call. Keep your belongings close when walking around town and avoid veering away from the recommended routes. 

Report Suspect Behaviour
If anything disagreements should occur in your vicinity, mention it to a member of staff. Don’t try and diffuse situations yourself – it’s just not worth getting involved. 

With plenty of amazing bargain cruise deals available nowadays, you can bag an incredible cruise holiday within a fantastic budget. Stay safe and enjoy a superb sojourn on the ocean.

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 …
