Travel Promotions


My kids and I have already decided where and when our next trip will be and that will be two months after my retirement early next year.  In fact we have bought our air tickets and I will disclose our destination when the time comes.  Still a long way to go but I can feel the excitement in me already!  :)

Meanwhile we are now making plans on how to go and where to go when we reach the place.  There are so much to plan, accommodation is already booked so we can strike it off our checklist.  We will be going for a seven days trip and we are doing some research online on which are the places worth visiting when we arrive.  Better get everything planned up so that time will not be wasted and making our trip memorable as much as possible.

During our last trip to Melbourne at the beginning of this year, we also made our plans beforehand.  We checked out the daily tours and which days to take so that the trip would not be too tiring and stressful.  I love the last two days in Melbourne, relaxing and strolling along the streets with our own free time.  And most of all, one place not to be missed is the Sealife Aquarium which was within walking distance from our apartment.  We were given free passes because of the day trips we had booked on earlier.  That is why it is always beneficial to check out promotion tours online in advance especially those which offers free entrance passes to sight seeing places.

Take for instance, if you are visiting Miami, do you know that you can print out one of their
Miami Seaquarium tickets from their website?  You can actually save 20% on the tickets by printing out the Smartsave coupon and presenting it when you are buying the tickets or another alternative, you can even take a picture of the coupon and save it on your cell phone.  Either way, you will get to save 20% off the entrance tickets.  The best thing is that this coupon is valid for one to six people!
I am indeed attracted to this Miami Seaquarium, there are so many attractions to enjoy.  Among them are the Flipper Lagoon where we can watch dolphins walk on water, Manatee Exhibition where we will learn all about the sea life objects or even the Stingray Touch Pool whereby we an reach in and touch the Southern and Cow-nose stingrays.  Oh, I would love to view the 200 pound sharks during feeding time too!  Well, these are a few among the many attractions and I will certainly look more into them when I plan to go there the next time!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
