Dinner at Zushimaki

I feel so good and we have a good restaurants to choose.The food is better down here compare the place we stayed before.

Considering the place is around the historical place so the place has more choices and it is a tourist attraction as well. Leaving in a historical place is a plus for me. The place is so neat, cute and well maintain.

Cheap Theatre Deals

Whether you’re an avid theatre fan or just like to take the family for the occasional big show during the holidays, you could be spending a lot more than you need to on your tickets. Face value tickets can cost a small fortune, but if you know the places to find reductions and tricks to cut costs then your day out could be far more reasonably priced than you think, leaving you more money for interval treats. 
Avoid booking fees by buying your tickets directly from the box office. You can also usually book for shows in other theatres if the theatre is part of the same group, so you might not have to mission as far as you think to buy your tickets. A great way to save money is by showing up early on the day to buy tickets on the door; just contact the theatre ahead of time to find out if they take part in this and what time they open up. These tickets are often discounted and can offer great seats if you’re lucky, so if you’re looking for something last minute than give this a try. Some theatres also sell returned tickets at a reduced cost 90 minutes before the start of the show, so this may be worth a go.
Are you going to the theatre as a group? If you are, you’ll be able to get a substantial discount on your tickets. The larger your group is, the lower your price will be, and there’s also room to negotiate on these costs. Just be sure you don’t get stuck with poor quality seating areas, as this can sometimes happen with larger groups; speak up if you want to ensure your view is clear. 
If you’re a student or young person, you can really benefit from special deals that are currently available at the theatre. Several theatre companies like the Royal Shakespeare Company and The Barbican allocate free or discounted tickets for 16-25 year olds. Mousetrap Theatre Project offers £5 tickets to a variety of shows for teenagers between the ages of 15-18, with £10 tickets available for those between 19 and 23. Check out their website to find out more and sign up if you’re a young theatre lover. The National Theatre has also started an Entry Pass scheme which provides cards for those under 26 which can get you reduced or free tickets to a variety of plays and musicals. These are great, and help a generation that is often forced to resort to payday loans still be able to afford to see a show. 
If you really want a cheaper ticket and don’t especially care where you sit, why not consider purchasing a restricted view ticket? These come at a massive price cut, and often the view isn’t as bad as you might think. Make sure you ask when booking to get a clear sense of whether you’ll really be blocked from the stage or not. These seats are sometimes located behind pillars or columns, or in high dress circle or balcony seating, so it really depends on preference whether this is a good deal to you or not. For many theatre lovers, the reduced price is worth the distance from the stage! 
If you look around and do your research, you can find really great deals online for many popular shows. Pages like Lastminute.com often offer discounts on big musicals and a variety of productions, just play around with the dates and times to try and find the cheapest price to suit your budget. Midweek and matinee performances tend to be the cheaper options, so avoid the Friday night rush and enjoy your evening out without exhausting your expenses. You can also join special groups on Facebook and other social networks to be up to date on the latest offers and discounts available, so ‘like’ as many relevant pages as possible to increase your chances of finding a great deal.

Top 5 Places to Visit in Singapore for the Entire Family

If you're planning on a family vacation with your kids, look no further than Singapore. The one stop tourist destination in Asia has everything you need to make an unforgettable family vacation that will surely bring joy to your family. Aside from the best hotels, restaurants, and shopping in Asia, Singapore has a number of top notch theme and amusement parks that are specifically made for the entire family to enjoy.

Here are the top 5 places for families to visit in Singapore:

Night Safari
A definite winner in any book, the Night Safari is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Singapore. This multi-awarded attraction receives an average of 1 million visitors per year, making it a top destination for both locals and tourists. This 40-hectare land of secondary rainforest is filled with more than a thousand animals, with 30% of them threatened species. You can walk the well lit trails or ride the tram around the safari, where you can see tigers, rhinoceros, tarsiers, and other exotic animals from all over the world. The world's first nocturnal zoo also offers cultural performances, tribal dances, and other events that will definitely make your night exciting.

Underwater World Sentosa:
Every kid loves dolphins. You and your kids can swim with the pink dolphins, sharks, feed stingrays, watch a sea lion show, and even have a fish reflexology. The Underwater World Sentosa hosts over 2,000 marine animals, making it a truly remarkable educational and jaw-dropping experience you and your kids will never forget. One of the highlights is the Water-T tank, where you can feed fishes through side openings of this gravity-defying aquarium.
Science Center Singapore
If you want your kids to learn while they're having fun, take them to the Science Center Singapore. With over a thousand hands-on and interactive activities, you will spend hours inside the 20,000 square meter space consisting of 14 indoor and outdoor galleries. One of its highlights is the OMNI Theatre , where you get to watch IMAX movies to your delight. Educational and fun, you will be leaving the Science Center with your kids' newfound appreciation for this subject in school.
Snow City:
If you come from a country with no snow, then visiting Snow City is a must. Opened in 2000 and revamped in 2007, Snow City has an average of 250,000 visitors each year. Experience sub zero temperatures all year round inside the snow tube, a three-storey and 60 meter long space where you can ski and snowboard. There are skiing and snowboarding classes, which makes for a great family activity. There's also an ice sculpture gallery, igloos, and you can even have a snowball fight - it will definitely be an experience you will never forget. After a few hours of enjoying the snow, take the chill away with a cup of joe at the hot chocolate bar.

Universal Studios:
The first ever Universal Studios in Asia, it is a definite place that your family must experience. Enjoy rides and activities based on your favorite blockbuster movies. Kids will surely enjoy the Transformer Ride and the Jurassic Park Rapid Adventure. Eight of the 24 attractions were made specifically for Singapore, giving you a truly unique experience of adventure.
Traveling with kids in a foreign country is very fulfilling especially when you see them scream with joy and delight. However, getting around can be a hassle. Public transportation in Singapore is world-class, but you wouldn't want to carry your child on your back while waiting for a taxi or getting in line for a train. Most definitely you will be buying souvenirs from the places you will be visiting, so why not get a Singapore car rental to help you solve your problems. After a day at Universal Studios, for sure your kids will be beat. Let them sleep in the car while you drive back to your hotel, and then take your wife to a romantic dinner after. Only a car rental will give you the convenience of traveling from one place to another at your own time, pace, and convenience.

A Guide to Dining Abroad

One of the most pleasant aspects of holidaying abroad is being able to experience the sights, smells and tastes of foreign food. It might be unfamiliar territory (especially if you're a 'weekly meal' kind of diner) but introducing our taste buds to unfamiliar foods can be an illuminating, transcendent experience. Try not to do too much internet based reading before you go away (trip advisor especially tends to be full of untrustworthy reviews, most likely posted by competitors) but a cursory knowledge of the area you're visiting might help. Knowing what foods and drinks the region is famous for and which areas and specific restaurants are held in a particularly high regard is certainly recommended too (after-all, you wouldn't travel all the way to Rome for a hamburger right?).

The Road Less Travelled:
Just because a restaurant is heaving doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be a wonderful meal. It might just be in an incredibly convenient and visible location or the restaurants might be offering some awfully cheap (and awful) pre-priced menus, which are designed specifically to trap gullible tourists. Some of the best meals I have ever had abroad have been in small, subtle, out of the way places that don't look like much on the outside but serve some of the finest, fresh food. A good example would be Cannes in the south of France. Whilst many of the most famous restaurants are stationed on the seafront, some of the most exciting restaurants are tucked away in the cities many side streets on the hill-side overlooking the harbour. Wherever you are though, a good idea is always to ask the locals where they would recommend, locals generally love being asked for their advice and a local recommendation usually means far more than a guide book or trip advisor recommendation. Sometimes it pays to be a little bit risky.

The Universal Language
Thankfully for English speakers, in the majority of European countries, most servers will have at least a cursory understanding of the language. This is especially true in more developed, 'tourist' areas. It can be embarrassing though to force your waiter or waitress to speak in a tongue that is uncomfortable for them and speaking the native tongue adds to the whole experience of being on holiday abroad. The universal 'bill' signal (index finger and thumb pressed together and swiped across the bare palm of your other hand) is generally understood across the world but can come across as condescending so if you're going to learn at least one word before heading abroad on your culinary adventure, at least learn the local word for the bill or 'cheque'. It's also far from a stretch to learn simple, 'catch-all' words such as 'chicken', 'beef', 'vegetables', 'wine' and 'beer', all of which are words you will undoubtedly be using at some point on your vacation. Really how much you choose to learn and to what extent is very much down to how much you feel is necessary but take it from somebody who spent a year working abroad in the continent, the locals always appreciate it when you make an effort!

The British are notoriously bad tippers. The culture for tipping our servers simply isn't as strong in the U.K as it is elsewhere in the world. Even when 'service charges' is added to the bill as standard we're likely to leave it at that, paying the bare minimum. In general it's expected (polite) to leave a gratuity of between 15% and 25%, any less than that could be taken as an insult. Of course if you were unhappy with your meal or your service for any particular reason, feel free to dock your tip accordingly.
Don't Be Afraid To Look Stupid
When you first arrive, be sure to familiarise yourself with your surroundings and take mental notes about how food is ordered and what others are eating. Use the most simple language possible when ordering (especially in countries where fluent English in not common) and don't be afraid to ask the waiter to double check what you've ordered, even refer them to a travel dictionary if you're really not sure.

Don't let this article intimidate you though. Just relax. You're there to enjoy yourself after all. Don't let one bad meal put you off either. It's unlikely that you'll enjoy every meal but you won't know unless you try!

Why The Travel Demographic Is So Desirable

In order for you to be successful with your business, regardless of its size, you need a source of new customers. Although you have many markets that are available to you, you will have a difficult time finding one that is as desirable as the travel demographic. In fact, targeting travelers properly can make a difference in the success of your business on many levels. Why is the travel demographic so desirable?

One important thing to consider when targeting any demographic is the amount of money that is passing through their hands. It's not simply enough for you to target those people who have money, you want to make sure that they are spending it. As a group, nobody spends more money than those who are traveling. If you are able to target a specific niche within the travel industry, you are often able to see new sales because those are the people that open their wallet when they want something.

When people travel, they want to ensure that everything is as convenient as possible. Most people who travel, aside from those that travel for work-related purposes, want to enjoy an environment that is conducive to relaxation. It is not difficult to recognize needs and desires of those who are on vacation and if you target them properly, you will find that you’re making consistent sales. When you are able to offer solutions to people who are on vacation, your business will prosper.

It is also easy to get in front of those who are vacationing and when you do so properly, you will make additional sales. For example, if you can position yourself so that vacationers are seeing you when they first arrive, you will see much more profit as a result. People arrive at a vacation location expecting to spend money, and you can fill their expectations by offering them what they need or want.

As you can see, the travel demographic offers you many opportunities to grow your business. It is a group of people who are not only willing to spend money; they often have the disposable income that is necessary to do so.

Why a Car Rental is the Best Option When You Travel

There are many modes of transportation that gets you to and from places. There's the public transportation system, your own car, a taxi, or a car rental service. If you live in Singapore, owning your own car is not a major necessity since public transportation systems are highly developed. However, there will always be instances when hiring the services of a Singapore car rental is the only way to get to your places of destination.

Whether you live in Singapore or just visiting, one of the best ways to travel around the city is by hiring the services of a car rental. Here are the top 3 reasons why you should rent a car:

There's nothing more luxurious than having your own car to drive around in a city that you're visiting. You can go to tourist attractions at your own time, visit several sites at your own pace without the company of other tourists if you travel by bus, and you can store your bought items from a day of shopping in the car as you dine in a restaurant.
If you reside in Singapore, owning a car is not that easy, and not very necessary. Hiring a car rental can give you the benefits of having a car of your own but without the hassle of maintenance, paying for parking space at your condo, and overall responsibilities associated with owning a car. You can simply just rent one when you need one.
It's Simple and Easy
Hiring a car is very easy. You can simply call the car rental company and have the car delivered wherever you are. You don't have to wake up so early to catch the train, a bus, or wait for a taxi. Your car can be at your location when you wake up in the morning, at the airport when you arrive from another country or outside your office when you need to go somewhere right after work.
Variety of Choices
If you're traveling on your own, with your boss, or with your children, you have the option of choosing what kind of vehicle you can get. Traveling with children is a great way to spend quality family time, creating memories that will last a lifetime. But when you travel through a train after a day at an amusement park, you'll find yourself carrying a bevy of balloons, stuffed toys, and other souvenirs, with your children half asleep on the road. Avoid these situations by hiring a minivan where you can store your souvenirs and have your children sleep as you head your way back to your hotel.
If you're traveling with your boss, you wouldn't want him to wait for a taxi, do you? His time is always precious and you can't make an impression if you just take him around in a public mode of transportation. Maybe a sedan, an SUV or even a chauffeured limousine will do.
If you're on a honeymoon with your new wife, or about to propose, there's nothing less romantic than sharing an intimate moment with other people on a train. Make your special day memorable by renting a luxury car.
There are so many benefits of renting a car during special occasions in your life. Make those moments memorable by eliminating the hassle of traveling by public transportation.

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

Four of the Most Popular Attractions in Florida

Florida is one the top destinations in the United States for a great family vacation, or even a honeymoon or romantic getaway with your beloved. However, the state has so much to offer that people sometimes have a difficult time narrowing down what they should do on their next trip south.
To help make it easier for you to plan your next great adventure to Florida, continue reading for four of the most popular attractions found throughout the state.

The Southernmost Point in Key West
Key West is the westernmost of all of the Florida Keys, which are a chain of islands known for their tranquility, beauty and gorgeous turquoise waters. While you are there, you can also visit the southernmost point in the country, famously known as Mile 0. Fly down or take the ride from the mainland and see the views as you pass through each small island on your way to Key West. Once there, visit Duval Street, which is lined with shops, bars, and restaurants, along with unique architecture and friendly locals. Once you get to the waterfront, you can stand and watch the sun go down for a nightly celebration that crowds gather for. Keep an eye out for the world famous wild roosters and chickens that hang out there as well.

Fort Lauderdale: A Great Alternative to Miami:
If you want to head to southeast Florida and enjoy the tropical weather and beautiful beaches but you would rather steer clear of the hectic city of Miami, go to Fort Lauderdale instead. Less than one hour north of South Beach, Fort Lauderdale Beach along A1A is famous and was once the perfect spot for spring breakers. Today, it is a great location for young couples and families who want to play in the waves, catch some rays, and try out great bars and restaurants along the beachfront avenue.
Everglades National Park:
Florida has a beautiful terrain and a huge variety of species of wild reptiles, birds, and mammals, many of which can be enjoyed at Everglades National Park. Ride an airboat to get close to native dolphins and alligators for a truly thrilling experience. This is considered the largest area of subtropical wilderness in the country. Head out during the dry season, when the area dries up for the most part, and be sure to enjoy some kayaking, hiking, camping, or biking.
The Many Theme Parks of Orlando

Orlando is full of amusement parks that the entire family will love. Check out Universal Studios to feel like you are a part of all of your favorite movies. Or head over to Disney's Magic Kingdom to meet all of your favorite Disney characters and ride all of the classic rides that you loved as a child and now want to share with your children. Then visit Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom, where you can hop on a safari ride that will let you see some of Africa's most incredible animals up close as they roam freely.

A mini adventure

Backpacking is the true definition of freedom. No ties, no plans, no need to be anywhere other than where you want to be. The world may be a huge place, but it’s also smaller these days in terms of getting around, so it’s never been more possible than now to see massive amounts, in less time.

Of course, backpacking isn’t for everyone, and if you’re like me, and you like to have your hotels and holidays planned out with regards to where you going to be staying etc, then you probably won’t like the fly by the seat of your pants approach to travel which tends to go hand in hand with this kind of break. However, if you’re spontaneous, open to anything and up for a challenge, this could be the trip of a lifetime for you.

There are important things to remember before you head off towards the horizon, and one of them is insurance. Most reputable companies now offer backpackers insurance, and it’s important to check the fine print and excess charges before you commit. This kind of insurance is a must-buy, and although might want to save as much as possible prior to your trip, this is something you shouldn’t even consider not buying, even for a second. If something were to go wrong on your travels, you wouldn’t be covered for health or baggage if you didn’t buy your insurance. The European Health Insurance Card, or EHIC for short, will help to a degree whilst you’re in Europe (with some exceptions), but it won’t cover you for everything, and for peace of mind, this is something you certainly need.

Although backpacking is meant to be spontaneous, it’s advisable to have a bit of a plan, or at least a vague idea of where you’re going. It’s also important to let friends and family back home know where you’re planning on heading next! Spontaneity is the spice of life, but it can also be dangerous if you’re not careful!

You don’t have to head off for months and months on end either, my friend went on a mini-backpacking adventure for four weeks and she loved every second of her adventure, so for first-timers, why not try this first?

Take care of your travel arrangements in good time and you’ll have more chance to plan your adventures. A good way to cut out stress and save money is by pre-booking airport parking services at your departure airport, such as the great value facilities for Luton Airport parking. Wherever you’re flying from, you’ll find a service to suit, not to mention prices to make you smile. I recently used Birmingham Airport parking, and wouldn’t hesitate to use it again, so check out what’s available near you.

Seeing the world is a right, not a privilege, so why not plan your own mini adventure – I bet half the fun’s in the planning!

It could be the perfect vacation spot with the traveler who would like to have the solid magnificence of Africa side. Once you're there don't forget to experience the Zambian safaris.

Best places in the world for viewing African wildlife:

 This would be my first priority if ever I'm going to Africa. I'll probably see my self in Kruger National Park where you can view African wildlife like lion,tiger, birds,elephant and other animals. The park was one of the best places in the world for viewing African Wildlife. My husband visited the place year 2010 and sad to say I did not go with him.

This is one thing we consider if we're traveling international. With a strong currency conversion I can experience all the best in Africa like hotel, foods and tours  without spending too much money.

Are You a Busy Mom?

Are you a mom? Are you always busy? Those two things usually go together. When you have children your life exponentially becomes busier. If you are not carful that can lead to an abundant amount of stress and anxiety. Since that is not healthy for you or your children here are a few tips to help lessen the busyness.

1. Organize
Multiple children, tons of activities, a job, a home, pets, family, obligations; all of the above lead to the term we call a busy mom. Whether you have all of these, a few of these, or different circumstances being a mom requires a lot. This is why you need to organize all of your to do’s. If you are married or have someone who helps you in taking care of the kids you need to get a shared calendar app with that person. This way you and the other person always know what’s going on. Getting organized can look like many things and this is just one. Another great way to get organized is creating a chore chart. You can assign chores for yourself and the children (age appropriate of course) so that you are never left doing all the cleaning yourself.

2. Carpool
Carpool will save your life. Odds are your child or children either go to school or are involved in some other type of activity. Get to know the children and the parents that are involved in the same things as your children. This way you can take turns picking up and dropping off ultimately freeing up some of your time to get other things done.

3. Mommy time
If you are a mom you need mommy time. Mommy time can look like a whole bunch of different things. Mommy time can look like a bubble bath, hanging out with a friend, spa day, reading time, naptime, mommy and daddy time, etc. Whatever it is you need it. Your kids need you to have it. Your children deserve the best you and without time to rest and relax that will be impossible.
4. Plan
Children need a plan. They don’t do very good with free time. A great way to keep your kids busy and out of your hair while you need to do other things is to plan activities for them. This can be as simple as if you need to go to a doctor’s appointment plan for them to color and bring the stuff with you. This could look like if you want to get the kitchen cleaned plan for the kids to watch a movie during that time to keep them occupied. Planning for your kids is simple and it will definitely save you time and energy.

5. Get an app
I found a company called Smith Monitoring that offers the most incredible app that will save moms so much time! Smith security has an app with features that can turn on any light or appliance from your phone from anywhere. If you are on your way home from work you can turn on the oven to have it preheat. If you lying with the baby on the couch and don’t want to wake them up you can turn the thermostat down from your smart phone. It is an incredible app.
