4 Life-Changing Places To Take Your Kids Before They Grow Up


No, not Disneyland.
When you have a young family, there is a lot of pressure put on holidays. We have to provide recreation, rest, and recuperation for all. At times, we always take the easy way out and go for another package beach vacation and offload the kids into their own little playgroup.
Today, we would like to challenge that idea, to go for a travel plan that would be so much more rewarding, for you and the kids.
Imagine this, you can have a much more enriching and fulfilling vacation with your kids, marvelling at the wonders the world has to offer through their eyes. It’s a chance to create a meaningful memory for everyone, and a unique experience that most kids at school won’t have had.
Let’s work hard on our family holiday ideas. Here are some great examples to get you started.

Show Them The Knowledge In The World

When Isaac Newton discovered Gravity, he claimed that he was standing on the shoulders of giants. Indeed all wonders and marvels of mankind are built as a result of billions of years of evolutionary success.
The invention of writing has enabled the cumulative transfer of this knowledge from one generation to the next. Your child is the next generation. They will inherit that knowledge.
That’s why you should take them to the Library of Congress in Washington DC to experience the smoky smell of aged paper, and unveil the history every single page holds.
The Library of Congress is the biggest library in the world. It has nearly four thousand staff and is outfitted with more than 500 miles of shelving. Those shelves are home to 128 million books, documents, and other texts, with about 10,000 items added every day.
The family friendly adventure film National Treasure was also shot in the Library so you can watch it to get excited. There is a Passport for Knowledge for kids, and a Knowledge Quest interactive adventure that will introduce them to the most famous pieces. Whatever your child is into, be it music, dinosaurs or racing cars, they can find everything there is to know about it in the Library.

Experience The Circle of Life

The Serengeti is the vastest and best-preserved wild ecosystem in the world. Its name means “endless plains” in Maasai, and its 12,000 square miles is home to the largest animal migrations in the world, with elephants, blue wildebeests, gazelles, zebras, buffalo, lions and spotted hyenas, all familiar to lovers of The Lion King.
Going for expeditions in the Serengeti is a sure-fire way to give your kids a love for adventure, discovery, and the sheer variety and scale of natural life. Children born today are part of a generation that threatens to spend most of its waking time in front of screens. Nothing can be better in instilling the value of getting outside than to experience the savannah first hand.
There are plenty of activities you can include, from bike and horseback riding to bush walks, night-time expeditions and Maasai village visits to keep the adventure alive.

Return To The Cradle Of Civilisation

For most people, Ancient Greece laid the foundations of modern civilization for millennia to come. There is no better place to learn about this civilization than in Athens.
The Acropolis is the most famous of Athens’ monuments and the birthplace of democracy. The Acropolis museum and the Karyatides are perfect explorations of architecture and technology. See the stadium where the first ever Olympics took place.
Enjoy Greek cuisine in the colourful Plakas district, and take a sailing tour through perfect azure waters. Watch the changing of the guard outside Parliament. Visit the Oracle at Delphi at the summit of Mount Parnassos, or the active volcano of Santorini.
Greece is full of history, mythology, and masterpieces that can fuel the imagination for a lifetime. If your child likes the Percy Jackson series, this is a great way to bring those books to life.
This city break can help children connect to famous thinkers such as Plato and Socrates, Pythagoras and Aristotle, introducing them to the influence of philosophy in defining how to live well.

The Vibrancy Of Cultural Differences

Tokyo is a thriving, modern metropolis with every kind of distraction. It will also feel completely alien to anyone outside of South East Asia. The food, the utensils, the fashion, the language, the hyper-technology – visiting Tokyo is like visiting a different, sci-fi world.
Tokyo is massive, home to 35 million people (more than everyone in Canada). There is an Ice Cream City serving 300 flavours, including sea salt, wasabi and green tea.
There are innumerable famous temples and shrines with unique architecture, dedicated to both Buddhist and Shinto gods. A unique philosophy informing a unique way of life.
There is a museum of innovation showcasing the latest experimental technologies. A Studio Ghibli museum with characters from some of the most dreamlike children’s animations ever made. Baseball stadiums, fish markets, inner-city roller coasters, a life-sized Godzilla and more all await. You can bathe in volcanic hot springs. Watch New Japan Pro Wrestling.
A visit to Tokyo can be so valuable precisely because it is so unique. The people in Japan are some of the politest you can find, and Tokyo is one of the safest major cities in the world. If you want your children to be comfortable in urban environments, and get a buzz from the possibilities cities can offer, Tokyo is the best place in the world to be.

Show Them The World They Are Part Of

These are just some of the innumerable amazing places that inhabit our pale blue dot, but they all come with much more than a beach and a playgroup to offer. These locations can expand the mind, and open up the possibilities for children at an important, impressionable age.
You can help your children understand things in new ways, see the world with their own eyes, and create a world-citizen who is more understanding, compassionate and curious than ever.

Resepi Mi Sedap Goreng Pedas Kaw-Kaw!!

Sekarang aku kemaruk makan meggi goreng pedas kaw-kaw. Yang pasti meggi goreng tu bukan dari kedai tapi dari air tangan aku sendiri. Sejak pertama kali adik aku buatkan meggi goreng, sampai sekarang masih teringat kat meggi goreng dia. Itu pasal lah gigih aku belajar masak meggi goreng ni. Pemilihan brand meggi apa pun penting tau. Dan aku memilih Mi Sedap. Tahlah sebab tekstur mi die tak kembang selepas direndam kot. Lepas tu kebanyakkan kedai makan memang guna Mi Sedap untuk Goreng-goreng. Ada je yang guna MAGGI tapi untuk jenis masakan berkuah atau sup suai lah kot.
Cara-cara nak masak tu senang lah sangat.
Rendam Mi Sedap dengan air panas dalam 2 minit .Bahan rencah tu dah sedia ada ketepikan dulu.Tumis bawang putih sama bawang besar sampai naik bau.Campurkan segala rencah yang memang sedia ada dalam 1 pack Mi Sedap tu.Gaulkan kesemua bahan dan masukkan cili api (mengikut tahap kepedasan)Masukkan Mi Sedap (yang telah ditapis airnya) gaulkan sekali jalan dan kemudian tambahlah kica…

Review :LA BOURSE LABOURSE SHAMPOO TREATMENT SYAMPU & Essential Tonic Conditioner

Hi korang. harini aku tergerak hati nak share pasal satu shampoo ni, yang aku baru beli bulan lepas. Ok ada perkara menarik yang aku nak sharekan bersama korang tentang kebaikkan shampoo ni. Tapi sebelum tu meh nak tanya apa masalah utama kaum wanita. Tahu kan rambut tu mahkota wanita. Tapi kalau dah rosak, kesan dari chemical yang ada dalam produk rambut yang diguna setiap hari memang parah lah kan. Sama lah kes macam rambut aku. Secara jujurnya, aku sangat suka warnakan rambut. Terlalu suka. Cuma lately ni bila rambut dah haruk teruk, kelam kabut lah nak kena cari solution untuk baik pulih balik rambut kan.


Antara masalah wanita dan rambut, bila ada anak kecik. kata orang tua-tua, bila bayi kita menyembur atau dalam pahaman lain, anak suka sembur-sembur air liur, rambut si ibu automatik akan gugur. Tak tahu lah mitos tu betul ke tidak. Macam aku dulu alhamdulillah, azriel sembut patplohkali sesaat pun tak ada gugur. tapi rambut kering dan kadang susah nak urus. Ada yang bermasakah ra…

Braces Part 1 kena tahu dulu info baru start dengan journey ok.

Hi Korang. Lama nya tak borak pasal hal diri sendiri ni. yela sejak jadi mak mak ni. macam ni lah life. banyak benda ditumpukan sepenuhnya untuk menguruskan anak. Yer urusan sendiri pun ada. cuma tak diceritak dalam ruangan ni macam kebiasaan aku buat.


Korang yang lama dulu yang setia tegar terjah blog aku ni, mesti ingat macam mana rupa gigi (stuktur dan susunan ) gigi asal aku kan? Huh yer.. memang tak cantik lah. bersiong sana sini. Belum senyum dah terjulur si taring. Senang cakap bila nak borak dengan orang atau nak ketawa, tangan aku dah get ready nak tutup mulut. Takut diorang terkejut tengok Predictor senyum.
Aku ni kalau nak diikutkan tak takut lansung dengan doktor gigi ni. Tapi kalau doktor kesihatan tu yang mula nak merangkak panggil makpak atok nenek sebab takutkan jarum yang tiba-tiba menusuk kat liang urat dengan tak rela. (ishh tak suka betul masa tu) sakitt!! Ok jom berbalik kisah pasal gigi aku ni.
Ok tengok je awek cun senyum dengan senyuman yang membuatkan semua m…
