Fun Days Out For The Whole Family

Fun days out can be the bane of any family, especially when young kids are involved. Whether it be planning a day out on a budget, or trying to inspire your children to do great things with educational trips, it can be a tough chore. When looking for a good day out that everyone can enjoy, here is what I look for.


Price:
I’m sure you know the pain of being on a bit of a budget when it comes to getting the family out. There are mouths to feed as well as minds to inspire and keep entertained. Fun days out for kids can be the hardest part of any parent’s job. The best thing to do is to pick something that is not only affordable for your budget, but can be enjoyed by all!

When considering the price; look at what you plan on eating, as this can be the biggest drain on your budget. It could be cheaper to take a picnic for your family - and healthier too!


Activities:
After the price, you need to decide what you want to do with your family. Do you want to get into the great outdoors and do some exploring? Or do you want to do something indoors whilst the rain pours down outside?


You could go out and explore Eilean Donan Castle, or you could go to an indoor play centre and let the kids run themselves tired. Whatever you choose to do to kill some time with the family, make sure it’s fun and enjoyable for all.

Can the whole family get involved?
If the whole family can’t be involved, then what’s the point in going? Right? The best thing about trips to the great outdoors is that everyone can enjoy the walking, climbing and exploring of the day. And the best thing about indoor play centres is that the kids can run riot in a safe environment. And the parents can have fun watching them while sitting back and relaxing over a drink. Whatever you may choose to do, make sure that fun can be had by all. And make sure the kids will be exhausted by the end of the day, allowing you an easy drive home.

Getting there and back:
This has got to be one of the most irritating parts of any day out. How will we all get there? How will we get back? Is it cheaper to take the bus or car? These are all questions that you will likely ask, and should consider. When it comes to the affordability of your day out, ensure that the method of getting about you choose is cost efficient. For instance, maybe taking a cheaper would be better for your purse than taking the family car? Public transport isn’t just better for the environment, but can be an easier, and more affordable, way of getting where you want to go .

These are only some of the things that I keep an eye on when planning a family day out. And if you keep an eye on these factors too, then I’m sure that a fantastic time can be had by all.

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 …
