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.

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 …
