Must-Have Gadgets, Gizmos And Tech For Your RV Vacation

There is something hugely satisfying about taking a road trip in a big RV. It feels so free and as if it’s a part of an adventure that’s just waiting to happen. The best thing is that you can take your friends a family along wherever you fancy going. You might plan the journey mile by mile and have a clear destination in mind. Or you might just let your wanderlust do the driving, and see where you even up. Of course, your whole vacation can go a lot more smoothly if you have the latest must-have gadgets, gizmos and tech for your RV. Check out this awesome list of what you’ll need for your next road trip:


Mobile WiFi Hotspot
Some RVs already come with this essential tool to keep you connected while you’re on the road. For all those in the back, access to the internet for streaming their favorite TV box sets and movies on a tablet can make the journey even better. Plus it means you can still be contacted by email as you go, unless you’re on vacation to unplug! You could even video call to show all your loved ones at home what they’re missing out on. It’s ideal if you like to blog your journeys, or just keep your social media pages up to date.




Solar Charging Station
Of course, if you’re going to be using your mobile devices and tablets, it’s essential you keep them topped up with charge. If you can’t park up somewhere powered, a solar charger is absolutely essential. There are some really good ones that carry a pretty hefty battery pack with them. Charge while the sun is up and get the benefits of the power all night long. Most cover your 12v devices as well as your smartphones and tablets. You can even power a 300-lumen lightbulb.


Coffee Maker
When you’re the one doing most of the driving chances are you’ll the love the idea of a hot cup of coffee in the RV first thing in the morning. There are several different RV models available. Some can be set-up to automatically come on as you want to wake up. Because they’re built for the RV, they are more compact and less likely to spill or leak as you make turns. This doesn’t mean they’re pricey, though, so shop around for a great deal.




RV GPS System
Not all RVs have a GPS system built in. But some of the better large screen ones can be hooked up to some front and rear cameras for parking too. Of course, the camera guidance isn’t really needed if you’re heading for the better RV parks you might use. Parks like the Galveston RV parks have wider roads that are easier to navigate. Choose a navigating system that includes a fully searchable database of all the parks and places of interest you might choose.


Whether you buy an RV or you’re just hiring one for a long weekend, these gadgets can be ideal for a long road trip. Best of all, they can be portable. This means you can take them from one RV to the next. Enjoy your road trip.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
