Metro Planner To The Rescue Travel Plans

When I returned from my free and easy Europe trip last year, many of my friends were amazed that I managed to go for my three weeks holiday on wheelchair.  They asked me lots of questions, from the time I boarded the plane, transit at Amsterdam and proceeded Aberdeen, Scotland.  Thinking back, I also wondered how I got through that three weeks holidays with a cast on my leg.  Two days prior to my Europe trip, I had a fall one evening, landed in hospital for one night and the next morning I was discharged with an advice from the doctor, no walking or running for the next six months.  Yes, my ankle had a crack that needed operation but I did not go ahead with it because I was looking forward to my planned Europe trip!

To cut the story short, I flew to Aberdeen for ten days to rest and relax under the watchful eyes of my son and my friend.  After the ten days, we flew to Aberdeen and from there, we visited another three countries, all on our own!  I give all credit to my son who has planned from A to Z, flights, transport, accommodation and places to visit.  He has done a lot of "travel homework" before the trip and everything has gone on very smoothly.  I did not do anything at all, just sit back and relax and be "pushed" on wheels.

For many of us who love to travelling on our own time and pleasure, it is now made easy with a Metro Planner.  No more worries about getting lost in a new place or where to go next, we can actually refer to this Metro Planner.  It helps to plan our trips so that we have nothing else to worry anymore.  All we have to do is to decide when and where we are going to travel, choose a date and time suitable for us.  After choosing our starting landmark, we choose on where we want to go.  That is what my son did too when he planned our holiday in Amsterdam followed by Frankfurt, Paris and Brussels

How to use Metro Planner?  Just log into their website, there is more info here.  Briefly on how to use, keep these information tips in mind.

Be as detailed as possible, for example, enter the address of the place we are going to, input it in the planner.  We can also choose landmark categories such as the name of the malls or beaches so that we know which station is near our destination.  We can also choose the mode of travel, either the rail or bus systems, just key in what we opt for.  And not only that, we can also decide which fare class we belong to, there are appropriate discounts to be given accordingly.

There are a lot more of details and information written in their website which I find rather useful for avid travellers like you and me.  Trips which we like to plan on our own without following those guided tours which used to stress me up especially during the morning calls.  I like to travel on my own pleasure and leisure these days especially now at my age.  In fact a lot of people love to travel on their own time and going to places where guided tours never take us before.  Blend in with the locals, go to places where locals go, eat at the places where locals eat, this is what I call a Real Holiday!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
