Usually when we visit a place we only see the good side of it. After all, who wants to see depressing slums and shanty towns when we can enjoy the modern shopping malls and eat good food in the main tourist areas. But then like a person, every city has the public side that is shown to the whole world, and the unseen side which is hidden from view.
This is my first blog post on food so bear with me as I give my biased and not so expert opinion on some of the best tasting local food in Kuala Lumpur. We visited KL during the National Day weekend in August this year. Of course we had to visit the Petronas Twin Towers and you can read about that in my last post which also includes a visit to a new opened factory outlet shopping mall near the international airport.
Not far from Sydney is the highland area known as the Blue Mountain, and for most visitors going to Sydney this is usually a must visit place.

Continuing from my last post on Sydney, this post is about other activities that you can do while in Sydney. If you like nature and animals, visiting Taronga Zoo is a popular choice with families. The other thing that you can do is to join a whale watching cruise. The main season to see whales are from late May to early November when humpback whales migrate north from the Antarctic towards warmer waters to breed. Their migration route takes them past Australia and in particular Sydney. Continue reading “Whale Watching in the City”
For those of us who shop online frequently especially when it comes to travel items like booking of hotels and air tickets, these can add up to quite a pretty penny. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could save some money when it comes to our travel expenses? So we look for discounted airfares, hotel rates and tours online. But what if there was a way to earn some cash back for each trip that we book online? Continue reading “Cashback, promo codes and other ways to save when you travel with ShopBack!”
