Here's Everything You Need To Go Travelling In America!

If you’re lucky enough to be on a gap year or in between jobs, then you may be making the most of your time off by travelling to America. However, before you set off on your epic adventure, you must be sure to plan everything meticulously to ensure you make the most of your time there. Fear not, this needn’t be too difficult. Here’s everything you need in order to go travelling in The States.

Plane Tickets 
The hardest part about travelling is saving up for it in the first place. Hopefully, you’ve got a load of savings stashed away in your bank account. However, if you’re not that fortunate, then you’re going to need to find a way to pay for your plane tickets. Flying anywhere can be expensive, but especially to America - as it’s such a big place! Look on flight comparison websites such as Sky Scanner to find the best deal and book as far in advance as possible to save yourself that extra bit of money. If you’re not sure which state to fly to, then check out our travel guides.


Social Media
Once you’re out there, you’re going to need somewhere to post your awesome snaps and selfies to! Be sure to have Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts set up ready for your epic adventure. Did you even go if there are no photos? That’s what people will ask back home! Make sure you flood your friends’ feeds with epic holiday snaps! Take a dedicated camera for taking pictures of all the great landmarks you will come across, too. Be sure to get a data SIM for the time you’re away. That way, you’ll save money on roaming costs and be able to Snapchat all of your incredible experiences.

Car 
Getting about in America can definitely be costly, so it may be worth hiring a car if public transport looks like too much of a hefty cost! Car rental needn’t be expensive either. Many companies will let you hire a car on one coast and return it on the other at an alternative outlet. How handy!? Getting a car also enables you to go on a road trip and experience some of America’s incredible, lengthy routes. If worst comes to worst, you can always sleep in the back of your vehicle, too! That’ll save you some cash for your entrance into Disney World!

Cash
You might find yourself a bit short of money when travelling. So there are two ways to go about dealing with this. You could either postpone your travel, if you have the time to do so. That way, you could work solidly at home for twelve months, saving almost all of your money, before jetting off. Alternatively, you could wing it, which is a very popular method for travellers. This is because it allows them to immerse themselves into American society more authentically. Getting a small job at a bar or cafe can easily pay the bills for a hostel to stay in. At places like this, you may meet like-minded people who you could go on to travel with.


That’s everything you need to know, folks! Enjoy your travels.

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
