Round the World Trips: Top Five Must-See Spots


A round the world trip can be found on most people’s agendas, whether it’s just a pipe dream or something that is becoming a reality. In this day and age, with the economy the way it is, people aren’t always able to globe trot but if you’ve got a slush fund that has ‘vacation’ written all over it, take the opportunity to take your annual leave and fly with it.
Depending on how many destinations you decide to see during your trip, it’s possible to enjoy a round the world trip without risking losing your job. By taking 2 or 3 weeks off work, just like you would for a summer jaunt in the Canaries, you can see much more of the world than you could ever imagine seeing in one go. Take your pick from some of these must-see locales. 

South East Asia
Whether it’s Thailand holidays that take your fancy or you’re hoping to stop by Vietnam during your trip, South East Asia has plenty of incredible options to add to your itinerary. From scuba diving off the coast of Phuket to spending an afternoon in the hustle and bustle of the Philippine capital, Manila, there’s something for everyone.
You can’t beat this corner of the world for azure waters, golden sands and tranquil coves. If you want to enjoy your own piece of paradise, make sure South East Asia is part of your schedule. 

Australia
Heading down under is one of the most popular additions to a round the world itinerary and it’s easy to see why. Its cities, such as Sydney, are rich in culture and experience while Queensland offers a perfect opportunity to be at one with nature with tropical rain forests of Cape Tribulation meeting the golden sands and the Great Barrier Reef within moments.
Head inland to the Outback for a chance to ogle Uluru while also catching sight of the proud Aboriginal natives. 

South America
A hub for adventure, South America is full of Bucket List-worthy itinerary fillers. From trekking through the jungle to embark on the Inca Trail to discover Machu Picchu, to feasting your eyes on the incredible sight of the Angel Falls in Venezuela, South America is a perfect addition to any round the world plans.
Of course, let’s not forget the other continents and subcontinents – Africa and India are full of hidden gems which beg to be added to your once in a lifetime adventure. You just have to research and decide on which ideas suit you and your dreams.

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…
