Best Cars for Summer Road Trips


Summer road trips bring to mind coolers full of cold drinks, visits to sandy beaches and a car full of family or friends. Naturally, a situation like this brings about a lot of potential mess. Some cars are better at handling this than others, though you can prepare your car by adding the best floor liners for cars and other accessories. Here are some of the best cars for summer road trips.

Toyota Camry Hybrid

The new popularity of hybrid cars is great for saving money on the cost of gas. The 2018 model of the Camry has an enviable MPG of 51 for street driving, and 53 on freeways. This incredible mileage will get you far without shelling out as much cash for fuel. It has five seats and a comfortable, roomy interior that will prevent passengers from feeling cramped during long hours of driving.

Subaru Outback

This car has a minivan shape, and provides extra room for passengers and driver alike to stretch out and has more space overhead. The trunk space can hold camping equipment, duffel bags and more. It comes with four wheel drive to keep you rolling even through back roads that may not be paved. Protect the front end of your car from mud as well as dings and scratches during all your outings with custom car bras designed to fit perfectly over the unique shape of your car.


Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep has always been known as an adventure vehicle, and the Wrangler is a classic choice for offroading and traversing the wild unknown. The big tires, four wheel drive and incredible traction make it the perfect choice for fording rivers and crossing muddy ground. The doors and roof are removable, so you can really experience nature as you drive through it. The Jeep is the perfect choice for a road trip through rural areas without paved roads.

Honda Accord Hybrid

Save on gas and avoid worrying about constant top-ups with the excellent mileage on this vehicle. This hybrid allows you to drive 47 miles per gallon both on the street and the highway. The backseat is spacious, so your passengers can be comfortable even several hours into your trip. It also has a powerful 212 horsepower drivetrain to propel you through cities and states. Keep things cool even in the summer sun with a custom windshield sun shade that blocks out the sun while you’re parked.

Chevrolet Tahoe

This big truck is the best choice for hauling around a big family, and maybe even a furry friend or two. The standard seating configuration seats 8, but it can be adjusted to hold 9 passengers. The large sizes give passengers plenty of breathing room, and the extra comfort can make long trips seem a little shorter. The SUV has a towing capability of 8,500 pounds, so you can pull a trailer along with you for camping or storage purposes.

When you rent or buy one of these vehicles with the intention of making a road trip, be sure to fit them out with accessories that will keep them proteted from the sun and other elements. Seat covers, floor mats and more make a huge difference in vehicle maintenance.

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 …
