Online Information for Cheap Accommodation Rates Comments Off on Online Information for Cheap Accommodation Rates

Posted on March 30, 2011 by dorisch

I have been receiving lots of school and easter breaks newsletters from travel sites in the last few weeks. Everyone is promoting cheap accommodation rates and it’s hard to make a decision on where to go.

Shopping and searching for information online has saved me lots of time as I work from home. Sometimes my friend from Singapore will ask me to search health products online for her. There are all kinds of things available from abdominal cuts products to acne skincare products. I use the internet to compare prices first so that I don’t end up paying for more than I should! It can be hard making decisions when you are spoilt for choices!

Well, I’ll be searching for some cheap accommodation rates for Sunshine coast or the Gold Coast. Let’s just hope that the water isn’t too cold for us!

Booking Holidays Online 0

Shopping in private shopping clubs is so much fun and I like the discounts I’m getting. HUbby and myself had bought several travel deals online and we have saved alot from these buys.

I’m looking out for some more attractive deals for the holidays and sometimes I wish it’s not just those pampering packages out there. Just the other day, hubby ordered a full box of home knick knacks from catch of the day and he’s so happy about it. I almost bought some ipad accessories and that’s becos it’s so much cheaper than retail.

Let’s see if I can book some good accommodations at discounted prices this school and easter holiday. It will be nice…

Planning for a Short Vacation 0

Posted on March 29, 2011 by dorisch

School holidays is just two weeks from now and I’m scratching my head for ideas on where to travel. Hubby doesn’t want to go anywhere far and I’m actually keen to visit Whitsundays.

But taking a flight seems a hassle for a short vacation so we might save it for later. But it’s our anniversary so there’s a good reason to celebrate eleven years of marriage! These days, we do lots of things online so I’m actually checking on some destination ideas while shopping around for a petroleum hose that hubby needed. Sunshine coast is a good place to travel as it isn’t too far to go on the road but I’m still spoilt for choice on where is the best place to relax and unwind for a couple of days.

I’m going to search online for best accommodation deals along the sunshine coast and hopefully I can settle for something before the next week.

Traditional Costume for School Event 0

My son came home with a consent form to participate in a school event next week. He was expected to be in traditional costume but I just can’t of any cos there isn’t any from our country.

I searched the garage high and low for some old clothes in the box and hoping to find the chinese costume he wore last year but it was just so hard to dig through those boxes of clothing! The garage door parts sure need replacement as they seem old. I think I should spend some time sweeping up the floors tomorrow morning. It’s just nice to have a clean garage. Back to his traditional costume, I think I may need to order a batik shirt for him since it reflects a little of the culture of Msia. But hubby thinks it’s too much a hassle ordering something just for an event. Fathers just aren’t the same as moms!

Flowers For a Gift 0

One of the best ways to show your love for a good friend on her birthday is to remember to get her a good gift. These days, people give away travel vouchers as gifts and it can be a nice gesture.

If you don’t want to take the risk of giving something that your friend doesn’t like, consider sending her a bouquet or a pot of flowers. With online shopping, buying or ordering a nice bunch of blooms isn’t hard at all. You can even get free shipping with proflowers free shipping code and save some money. With so many options to choose from, it isn’t that hard to choose one that will bring delight to a good friend. No one will reject a nice flower gift and it does bring lots of comfort too!

Technology Makes Traveling Easier 0

Today’s advanced technology had provided business people more flexibility when they travel. Other than searching for cheap accommodation rates online, they can now do their work when they are traveling.

Just a quick Conference call and they can connect to their office staff and management without worrying about being reached. Though there are different time zones, they can still communicate cheaply with technological devices without paying too much for the phone bills. I can see that many travelers move around with laptops and netbooks and with today’s advanced smartphones, you can check your email, talk to an overseas friend or do your research at the touch of few buttons. It’s amazing that we are living at such exciting times!
