Have the Vacation of a Lifetime by Booking With a Travel Agent

With apps and websites devoted to travel, you might wonder why you would speak to a travel agent near you. Travel agents are not passé, they offer many benefits to you whether you’re traveling abroad or overseas. When you’re looking for a special vacation or traveling to places unknown, your travel agent is your resource who can save you time and money by finding the points of interest and lodging that meets your needs.

Special Needs
More travelers need unique accommodations, for children, pets, or themselves. Your travel agent knows the questions to ask and find those places that work for you and your family. If you have dietary restrictions or physical limitations, your travel agent can find the information for you and help you find the right places to visit. If you’re traveling to a place that could be unsafe for tourists, due to unrest or crime, your travel agent can direct you to safe travel and lodging. Speak to a travel agent near you about the vacation you want. Special requests can be worked out before you go, leaving you free to enjoy your stay.

Multiple Destinations
When you’re making plans to visit somewhere that involves different sites, your travel agent makes the most of your time by planning your trip to get where you want to be quickly. Think about how much time you will spend just trying to get somewhere in a place that you are not familiar with. Instead of spending your vacation or business trip finding the right transportation, enjoy your trip when you speak to a travel agent.

Understanding the Culture
When you speak to a travel agent about your vacation, you have an insight into the culture where you’ll be traveling. For example, in Spain, everyone eats tapas while standing. This may not seem like a big deal, unless you have a problem standing for long periods of time and need to be able to sit down. Some foreign countries have different views on same-sex relationships, which could make traveling there difficult. Working with your travel agent gives you access to this information so that you aren’t in an awkward situation. The knowledge that your travel agent provides is important to your overall enjoyment on your trip.

A Travel Agent Has Clout
By working in the industry, your agent develops relationships with people who make things happen at your travel destination. This gets into places that you could never do on your own. Your online app can’t do anything when the rooms aren’t available, but your travel agent knows who to speak with to get that connecting room or when things go wrong. Don’t underestimate the value of a good travel specialist who wants to make your vacation special.

Find the Best Deals
Speak to a travel agent near you to find the best deals on the trip you want. Agents stay up to date with what’s new from their travel partners, so you can find great prices on your resort or cruise ship. If you’re planning a wedding, you already have enough on your plate and don’t need to spend time planning your honeymoon or travel for guests. Let a travel agent take over some of the work, so you can actually relax on your vacation.

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 …
