Tips for Making Business Travel More Enjoyable

 If you have a job which involves doing a lot of travelling, you might start to feel tired, worn out and a little fed up from being away from home all the time. Whether it’s travel overseas or working away in the UK, spending long periods away from loved ones and those endless nights in lonely hotel rooms can take its toll. Here’s some top tips to help make your business travel life more enjoyable:

1                 1)  Explore
If you’re constantly moving around touring different parts of the country then there’s no excuse not to explore. Do some research on the place you’re heading to in advance and make a list of local attractions, independent restaurants and the sights you’d like to see. In your spare time, head out to see all these different things and time away from home will pass much more quickly than if you spend it sat in the hotel room the whole time.

2                  2)  Surprise Family and Friends
Keeping in touch with family and friends is now easier than ever before so whilst you’re away remind them that you’re thinking about them by sending them gifts. With domestic delivery services like the ones at TNT available for such great prices, you’ll be able to send them home a welsh cake from Swansea, or a delicious Bakewell Tart from Derbyshire, even a fridge magnet from a local landmark or a souvenir from a museum, to let them know you’re thinking about them.

                     3)  Travel with Your Home Comforts
One thing is for sure, living in hotel rooms you do start to miss your home comforts, so always be sure to pack the essentials when you’re going away on business. From your favourite fluffy slippers to your own dressing gown and favourite brand of tea bags, with your home comforts at hand you’ll be sure to feel a lot less lonely. There’s nothing like a few chocolate Hob Nobs and a cup of tea to make you feel right at home.

By following these tips on your next business trip, hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy your time away from home a lot more and the time should whizz by a lot faster. The homelier you make your time away the quicker it will go and before you know it, it will be time to head back home again.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

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.......

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
