It's Time to Travel! What to Bring and What to Leave?

It's Time To Travel! What To Bring And What To Leave?

The ultimate travel help is here to keep you in check with all your travel preparations. Every now and then, one needs to travel to rejuvenate oneself. It is important too to make sure that before you start your flight search phase, the things you bring with you are the things you need to bring and the things that you should keep away at home are right at home. We don’t want unnecessary stuff that will just add pounds to our luggage. Here are the things that can help you narrow down the stuff you need and your stuff you need to leave behind. 

Oh, heads up on the news of the day, Traveloka is throwing great deals including cheap 

 Air Asia flies to many destinations and one of them is Hawaii and 'quote' from their CEO ….“By connecting Asean and North Asia to the US our world-class low fares offering, we will make it possible for those who could only dream of a vacation across the Pacific to take that trip”.


Diamond Head in Honolulu is the most famous volcanic crater in the world and is located on the south-east coast of O’ahu at the end of Waikiki overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
  


Vietnam  ....... A street in Hanoi.  Note the motorbikes and the women selling their wares.

You might need to keep an eye out if you are doing your flight search or hotel bookings. If you don’t know, Traveloka is this new kid on the block in OTAs neighbourhood. It’s new in Malaysia, but pretty well known in other Southeast Asian countries. Wicked, huh? Anyway, you can visit their website to find the deals coming. Prepare to lose your wits when you go flight search there.

When You Travel, You Need These Stuff
1.     Perfect Luggage

Knowing your luggage is like knowing your soulmate. You have to know which suits the type of travelling you are going. If you are travelling heavy for a looonggg time, then the rolling luggage or the four-wheels luggage will work fine for you. You can roll with it at ease, but you might get a bumpy road if you are walking on paved roads and sidewalks. If you want to experience adventure from one place to another like backpacking, then, you guessed it, the backpack will make your life easier. Remember, choose your luggage like you do for flight search. Crappy flight will result in crappy travel experience. 


2)  Travel Health Kit

The last thing you need is getting sick or injured throughout your travelling period. Dying is another thing, that’s unavoidable. It is important before you do any flight search for your travel, you make sure your health kit is in great condition and put together with your luggage. Don’t leave it at home and expect you can get it once you are there. It is better to have your basic medications, vitamins, antibiotics, sunscreen, travel insurance (that’s number one) and other health-related stuff is ready. When you are done with your flight search and all, you won’t have to revisit your luggage to check whether you have everything or not.


When You Travel, You Need To Ditch These Stuff

1.     Work

You should make this a life motto. No matter how far you are up on the ladder at work, but when you are travelling for the holidays, you travel solo. This means that the things associated with work should be kept as far away from you and your flight search as possible. You don’t look up on your flight search while thinking “does this airline provide convenient working space for me to finish some work while on my way there?” NO! Don’t even think about it. It is important not to be the slave of your own work. Life is so precious and it’s not going to give you a heads up when it is done with you. Do you really want the last time you spend the holiday with your loved ones is having you spending time on work? Put a foot down on this. Work belongs at the office, not when you are a thousand miles across the globe having FUN with your family and friends.

2)  Extra Baggage

More baggage means more pounds on the luggage you have with you which equals to the waterfall of money you are going to have to pay up once you are done with your flight search operation. Ditch the unnecessary stuff behind. What kind of stuff? The stuff that you don’t need. The stuff that you are very unlikely to use when you are there. It’s going to be hard to leave those things behind, but it is for the best. Make your flight search process easy by sticking with minimalist philosophy.

And with that, have a great travelling experience~

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.
