Contests and Holidays

I miss joining online contests. I remember a few years ago, when I still had a lot of time on my hands, I would join different online contests and giveaways. I actually won a several contests like going to North Thailand for a tour, a supposed trip to Jakarta and a free stay in 2 different hotels in Thailand. But unfortunately, even if I won a few, but due to clashes of schedule and stuff I wasn’t able to claim a few of them.

Anyways, writing about this now makes me want to revisit all those sites that host contests and maybe join one or two. I hope they have contests for free trips to Disneyland or maybe Atlanta ( and see the guitar center atlanta ) . We would love to go on a holiday during the school holidays in June as we don’t have anything planned yet.

Mesmerizing Maldives

I’ve been mesmirized by Maldives. It’s such a beautiful country with beautiful people!. Though I haven’t really been to all the resort islands as we were there on a low budget trip, but nevertheless, what I saw was stunning!

I’m not really a beach person but I’m always captivated by nature. Being in Maldives actually reminded me of my ‘Mommy Holiday’ with my friends since the sand and sea were almost the same. I mean, that’s how I saw it. Hahah! But being in an unfamiliar place like Maldives with a language that I can’t understand and with a culture that’s so different from their guests was an exhilarating experience for me.

If given a chance ( a higer budget) I would love to go back there and this time go to the famous island resorts and really soak in the sun and sea. :)

 

Bank Negara Museum

Bank Negara Museum is a great place for learning and appreciating money and art for the Children. I’ve learned about this place through some articles and posts. At first, I was wondering whether going to a money museum is going to be worth the trip. I mean, it’s just ‘money’ and there’s nothing much interesting about it.

But I was proven wrong because my family really enjoyed out time at the money museum. It was really a very interesting trip as kids were taught how money is made, its history, introduction to finance, economy and world currencies. It may sound boring to some, but the way they presented all these was very interesting. A bonus for our trip was the art exhibit on the top floor and not to mention the beautiful architecture of Bank Negara Muzium. Plus, you don’t have to pay for any entrance fee. Ok, so where should our next field trip be? But first let me take a lot and check musiciansfriend  for musical instruments.

Vlogs and Travel Vlogs

Our family has subscribed to one vlogger who makes amazing  videos in his travels and even his daily activities. He is a very creative young man who can easily capture his subscribers with his storytelling and effects no matter what video equipment he uses. Anyways, after watching his videos daily, my kids also get interested to learn video editing, but they’re just doing all the cartoon editing. I’m also interested to learn how to edit videos creatively, and I tried after downloading Final Cut Pro in our computer, but it just takes so much of time. So, I gave up. Haha! I would rather spend my time either sleeping or going out during the weekends rather than learn so much techy stuff. :)

Growing Medical Tourism In Malaysia

20160814_202535Malaysia is a beautiful country. Malaysia is multi-ethnic and multi-cultural. The population is made up of the large majority Malay, and the minorities Malaysian Chinese, Malaysian Indians and indigenous peoples. Due to the nation’s multiculturalism, Malaysia is a gastronomical paradise and celebrates diverse colourful festivals. Malaysia is a perfect holiday destination with its evergreen rainforests, mountains, sandy beaches and most of the months with sunny weather.

Malaysia is enjoying an increasing growth in the area of medical tourism. Many private hospitals have enhanced their services to accommodate to the needs of foreign patients from all over the world. The hospitals are equipped with modern facilities and the internationally trained surgeons or doctors in Malaysia can speak and communicate in fluent English. They can deliver first class treatments with the same quality of care for a fraction of the prices one has to pay back home.

Plastic surgery is becoming more popular in Malaysia. Due to the current conversion rates, there is an increase in medical tourism in Malaysia. Patients seeking surgical procedures in Malaysia sometimes get to save up to 70% of what they have to pay for the same treatment back home. Some of the affordable surgical procedures include face lift, nose job and breast augmentation.

If you are thinking of going through any of the above procedures in Malaysia. consider planning your surgical date to fit into your holiday plans in order to get the best out of your stay in Malaysia. Schedule your active outdoor tours before the surgical date and after that to enjoy the less strenuous activities like lazing besides the swimming pool or enjoying the beautiful sunrise and sunsets from the hotel or even the beach.
