Aerotel Airport Hotel KLIA2

I took the last flight out from Bali to KL, which I ended up touching KL past midnight. So, I decided to bump a night at Aerotel, no hassle and I don’t need to freakin’ bother about the taxi fare all the way from KLIA to the city.

Aerotel’s front desk looks so fine.

That point of time, I was longing for a hot shower and bed! To be exact, LIKETHIS! Clean sheet, fluffy pillows soft bed.Aerotel is located right beside Plaza Premium Lounge.Its so bright and bold and you definitely won’t missed this.

So, a little introduction of the Aerotel’s cozy room that acts like your paracetamol when you have layovers at the airports be it long or short. A room with clean bathroom furnished with water heater, hair dryer, importantly clean towels.

… and this one thing which took me a while to figure out is the squeeze the liquid soap and the body lotion. I know, I am behaving so kampung now! Even with the instructions on the bottle, I still need to figure out. Anyway, its not an issue at all. The issue arose when I love the smell of both the liquid soap and lotion so, so much! Just like its’ brand,  Naturals.

Complimentary water! Yes, thanks so much!

Fret not, the flight timings are available within the premises. So, you better watch out for yourself  instead. Don’t be late for your flight as you indulge yourself during the layover simply cuz its too good!

See that? Besides a TV and in room WIFI that connects you to the world, there’s a few wall plugs around the room for your to get your gadgets charged up before catching your next flight.

Birthday Bash

Its never about the age. Birthday with friends in the clubs, well yea, that probably happened a decade ago. Just when my family and buddies are in Penang, being back on the beautiful island will definitely be it.

So this year, it all started with a trip to Bali (my third visit and I’m still so in love with this place for whatever reason).Then I decided to pop by at KL, visiting the those who are dear to me. Its funny when you see your friends working so hard to hook you up … even with a waiter.Then I have my sister (and her sisters from different mothers) who decided to throw me a surprise. We went in the same car and its pretty remarkable how they hid the balloons. 

From KL to Penang, that’s when I have back to back cake cutting and stuffin’ myself with so much baking powder.

One with my best buddy, who watched me grow from my 20s to my 30s now, decided to feed me with Ondeh-Ondeh birthday cake.

and of course these bunch of lunch kakis who came with SioBak mantao! I know its crazy but its good!
Friends who stay? Absolutely!

4 Precautions to Take Before Departing for an International Trip

Visiting a foreign country can be loads of fun, but the processes involved and preparing for the trip can also be quite stressful, especially if you forget to take important steps before leaving home. You don’t want to be on vacation wondering about whether your home, vehicle(s), and pet(s) are safe. Likewise, you don’t want to encounter any unnecessary mishaps upon your arrival either. The good news is, with a few simple steps you can feel confident enough to have a great time without worrying about issues that would otherwise be non-factors. With that said, here are 4 precautions every traveler should take before embarking on an international adventure:

1.      Upgrade Your Home Security

Being able to keep watch on your property and belongings while you’re gone will keep you from fretting so that you can enjoy your trip to the fullest extent. Fortunately, adding a multi-camera security system is simple and affordable, and most premade setups are equipped with cloud capabilities and mobile apps that you can use to check in on every camera angle from a convenient mobile app. Aside from surveillance, you may also want to upgrade your garage door opener. Sites like Global Garage have reviewed the most secure options on the market so you can eliminate the risk of unauthorized parties using third party remotes to gain access to your garage and home.

2.      Purchase Travel Insurance

Travel insurance policies give you the comfort of knowing that any monetary losses can be recouped in the event that your travel itinerary doesn’t pan out as planned. If you’ve made reservations that are non-refundable but would like to have the assurance that you can get your money back regardless, travel insurance gives you that security for a relatively nominal monthly fee.

3.      Check to Make Sure You’re Properly Vaccinated

Depending on where you’re headed to, you may need to get additional vaccinations to protect yourself from pathogens that are problematic in the destination region. This is usually more of a concern when you’re headed to tropical or undeveloped countries where there may be a higher rate of diseases that aren’t found in your native country.

4.      Double Check Reservations

Finally, in the days before leaving you’ll want to call the hotel, tour guide, transportation services, and any other accommodation providers you’ve made arrangements with to verify that all of your reservations will be fulfilled as expected. Sometimes simple clerical errors can mess up your entire vacation and while such occurrences are relatively rare, when they do happen they can be major headaches.

Make a Checklist of Everything You’ll Need

Now that you’ve crossed your T’s and dotted your I’s, you should finalize your vacation planning efforts by creating a detailed list of items that you’ll need to bring along. Try to envision the activities you’ll be engaging in during your stay and pack any provisions that will make things more convenient, comfortable, and enjoyable for you. This extra step will help you avoid the disappointment of having to go shopping for extra supplies when you’re supposed to be making memories instead.
