There are many temptations and challenges around you cannot easily ignore. These tips will help you to stick to your diet even when you are traveling around the around the world.

You can ask the server to steam or grill your foods instead of frying. It works in many restaurant especially when they have reliable cooks or chefs who are willingly do everything to satisfy their customer and understand the importance of your diet.

One Stop Trip to the Supermarket: Tokyo Cheap Eats Under 500 Yen

Tokyo Cheap Eats Under 500 Yen

 

Everyone loves the sheer convenience Japanese convenience stores (conbini) provides. it’s located basically everywhere, at any corner of the road that you can find. It’s so easy to lose track of your spending as you buy a piece of dorayaki at FamilyMart, then spend 200 yen more at a warm bottled ocha at 7-Eleven. While that’s good and all for your in-between meals snacking, relying on conbinis for your meals might falsely led you to believe that you’ve cut down your meal expenses to a maximum just because you don’t eat at a cafe or a restaurant.

You can definitely cut more.

Obviously as opposed to the conbini, supermarkets are considerably cheaper. At conbini, you pay for the convenience. So make sure to make regular trips to supermarkets if there is one near your place. Traditional markets are obviously cheaper, so that’s an option too. However supermarkets are infinitely easier to find in the midst of Tokyo metropolis. If you can’t find one on the main road, usually very well within walking distance, then it’s probably just one or two stations away.

Cook!

If you have time and the facility of where you stay allows it, cooking by yourself as you travel can be extremely rewarding, as you navigate through the process of acquiring the ingredients yourself and finding the time to cook amidst your packed itinerary—and perhaps even preparing a lunchbox for yourself. The feeling of domesticity could be very fulfilling. No need to fret if you simply can’t sacrifice the time to do the mundane task of cooking—or simply too lazy to. You can find slices of chicken, beef, fishes, and the likes, ready to season and cooked. If you’ve been eyeing some Japanese cooking recipes, then starting in Japan is the best way to go about it, as ingredients and seasonings like shoyu, wasabi, mentsuyu, mirin, and many others could be easily found.

The Snacks

A pack of toast bread that have anywhere between 5 to 10 slices are priced anywhere between 100 JPY to 400 JPY, depending on the type of bread and the brands. A pack of 10 slices of peeled bread I usually bought is priced at 130-150 JPY, enough for at least three days of breakfast.

Fruits are often expensive in Tokyo supermarket, so make sure to watch out for the price tags. Except for bananas which are reasonably priced across many shops. A pack of 3 Cavendish banana is priced at approximately 200-300 JPY; you could find them cheaper or more expensive depending on the supermarkets/stores. The bananas last for a few days; more if stored in the fridge. Banana toasted sandwich first thing in the morning? Yum!

Instant Food

You can also find delightful instant food that won’t make you feel as if you’re eating something instant. If you have access to a microwave or a stove, instant okonomiyaki and takoyaki are among the packaged instant food you’d have to try. There’s also a pack of Hamburg steak complete with the sauce ready for you to heat up and dig in. Then of course, there’s the complete set; Bento. A fancier pack of bento would easily cost you over 500 JPY, though, so take notice of the Yen tags!

Of course when it comes to fresh produce in Japan, heed the age-old tip of closing time discount. Nearing closing time, usually one hour to 30 minutes, the tenchou (manager) would put up discount stickers—in which the discount rise gradually. From 10%, 30%, 50% and even up to 80%. You can easily get a pack of bento priced at approximately 150 JPY for a non-frilly bento, and 300 JPY for some makizushi or even a few of nigirizushi! Each store’s closing time is different, so make sure to check to notice the pattern.

Bringing the Kids to Komodo Island: Can You, Really?

“Can your kids go to Komodo Island?”

Bringing the Kids to Komodo Island

The Komodo Island boasts with its wildness. The raw nature, prehistoric giant lizard, and wonderful landscape promise a wonderful adventure. When you go around April to June, you will be greeted by highly contrast, technicolor landscape—which will be very exciting for the kids. In the season, they’ll get to see sparkling white beach bordering rolling green hills with pristine azure sea. They will have a precious chance to meet with the Komodo Dragon. one of 7 New Wonders of Nature. As if it’s not enough, your kids will be thrilled by pirate-like adventure in the liveaboard and get the chance to snorkel in shore water which is very alive with marine life.

All the experience they can get in Komodo Island will be very beneficial for their growth and development. However, given the rough condition, travelling with kids to this frontier require special attention. Here’s the tips to have successful holiday with Komodo and the kids—and keep everyone happy.

1. Keep ‘Em Away from the Dragon

Seeing the Komodo Dragon in the real life can be very thrilling, especially for the kids. These scaly beasts appear like straight from their Dinosaurs books (PS: albeit looking like  one, they are not a dinosaur). The danger lies in Komodo’s behavior. The giant lizard often seems kinda sleepy and languid, sometimes heavy with full belly. They provide false sense of security while in fact they can move in a flash to bite you.

Komodo might appear like a strange creature that sparks the curiosity of the kids. However, never let your kids touch them. Don’t even let them go any nearer than 2 meters from the lizard. Keep the kids close, especially in a National Park where the lizard are left out roaming free without any fence.

2. Stock Up in Labuan Bajo

Before you hop on the cruise, better to spend a good time in Labuan Bajo. This is the last ‘civilized’ city where you can find the best range of necessity. Fill up your bag with diapers, medical supplies, milk, snacks, toiletries, and any other thing you might need. Keep in mind that it’s best to stick with small-sized cartoned milk for the kids. The big one can only life for a day after opened, and you might not have private refrigerator in your boat. 

3. Always Bring Snack and First Aid

Here are five things that should be in your bag wherever you go: first aid kit, sunscreen, mosquito repeller, and snacks. The sun in Komodo Island (and generally anywhere in Flores) is very hot. The kids will get very bad sunburn without regular reapplication of sunscreen. And it’s one of high malaria area in Indonesia—you don’t want to risk it. Meanwhile, the snack can help to soothe down the weary kids after so much adventure.

4. Bring Your Own Equipment

What is a trip to Komodo Island without one or two snorkelling? The Komodo National Park is one of the best preserved marine life as well as best diving site in the world. The trip is bound for some underwater exploration! Unfortunately, not many ship provide kids-size life jackets. You need to bring one. The same thing applies for snorkelling equipment—you will have difficulty to find kid-sized equipment. If your plan to have some water sports, make sure you bring all the kids’ equipment before going.

5. Bring Suitable Shoes and Mosquito Nets

Any day in the Komodo National Park is a trekking day. You will trek with the dragons in Komodo and Rinca Island. Going to a hilltop view in Padar? Trekking. Resting for sunset in Kelor Island? Another short trek. Exploring the savannah in Gili Lawa and Sebayut? You got the trek ready. Make sure each of the kids are well equipped with comfortable short shoes. It will help them to trek easily and avoid the swollen foot.

And the mosquito nets? You’ll be super thankful to yourself to bring one as not all places have it. It protects everyone from mosquito bites and the malaria dengue .

6. Take them to Exercise Before the Trip

With so many snorkel and trekking rip, it’s better to get the kids for some exercise before going. It can be a simple jog in the park or bicycling.

Planning Your First Komodo Cruise: Choosing the Cabins

What’s better than a Komodo cruise for a summer voyage to the idyllic Flores and Komodo National Park? Picture a tropical archipelago with high, brown mountainous lands, glittering soft beaches, and luminous ocean. Sometimes, lines of rosy-tinted beaches peek shyly from hidden shores. Now, throw in the prehistoric, venomous, and largest lizard in the world which creeps among the drylands. You got Flores, one of the most idyllic destinations in Indonesia. And this type of holiday is best spent in the comfort of a cruise.

Planning Your First Komodo Cruise: Choosing the Cabins

A cruise is built for those who really want to experience the “live aboard” (literally living in the ship) to the fullest. It’s not built for speed—you might want to opt for speedboat for that. A sailing trip with Komodo cruise is not only about a vessel to reach destinations. It is meant to take the journey itself as an enjoyable part of the adventure itself. If this is your first time sailing with a cruise, take note to these tips to make your cruising holiday pleasant.

Determine Your Type of Holiday

With so much gorgeous Komodo cruise options, you can choose one that really suits your type of vacancy. If you are traveling with a partner or having a honeymoon trip, you might want to take a cruise with plenty of privacy. A fancier cruise with a touch of romantic design will be a good plus for a couple holiday. After all, you want this trip to make you all lovey-dovey with your partner, don’t you?

Traveling with family (and little children) will require a bigger room to accommodate all the family members. Better to take a ship with family rooms; the one with one queen bed and bunk beds for the kiddos. For an adventure with the gang, a luxury might not sit in top priority. A cruise with bunk beds, plenty of lounge spaces and party area will make a great trip. The type of your holiday matters to ship choosing—from luxury cruise to the budget-friendly one.

Cabin Placement

Speaking of rooms, pay extra attention when you choose a cabin. Especially if you are prone to seasickness during a sailing trip. Know that the higher a cabin, the harder it rocks. They do, however, provide the best view of the surrounding ocean. For a more stable stay, choose cabins in the lower and central part of the Komodo cruise.

A Style of Live

Do you want to wake up to sunrise? Or would you prefer to get closer to the social hub? All this little preference matter when you choose a cabin in the cruise. If you are very social, for example, you might want to have easy access to the lounge, where the crowds are.

Wooden Ship vs Cruise

A lot of travel agencies back in Labuan Bajo confuse a wooden ship with the cruise—think that they are interchangeable. A lot of travelers fell into the misguidance and ended up with cramped wooden boats instead of a neat cruise. A wooden boat and low-budget liveaboard to Komodo are not the comfiest in the market. The cabins are usually just enough to spread a bed and pile bunkbeds right on top of it. The narrow decks have little space left from long tables and chairs. Sometimes, they just arrange the meal on the floor! Know the difference.

Type of Cabins

Just like hotels, cruises has its own terms when it comes to the type of their ‘rooms’. Almost every decent Komodo cruise will feature one of these types or combine several of them on board. There are four types of cabins that you need to know:

The Inside

It’s the smallest cabin in the ship, usually located at the lowest level or in the middle of the ship. Expect to find no windows. It’s also the cheapest of all room—perfect for budget travelers who still want to have quality service of a cruise.

  • The Outside

This room is located on the side of the ship. It has a small window or porthole, so you can peek at what’s happening on the outside. Sometimes also known as ocean view, it’s also a little bit bigger than “inside” type.

  • The Balcony

Just as the name suggests, this room features a balcony where you can take fresh air without coming to public space. It’s great for travelers who want a little luxury and privacy. You can enjoy the beauty of the ocean right on the doorstep.

  • The Suite

Sometimes it’s only found in the most luxurious Komodo Cruise. The suite allows separated living areas and sleeping station, making the journey much more comfortable.

How Living 3D2N in A Komodo Boat Trip Looks Like

For many travelers, embarking a journey to Komodo (no, not kimono, as my computer insist) is an escape dream. Getting there, however, is not exactly an easy trip. Unless you own a helicopter, taking a Komodo boat trip is the only way to get there. Choosing the right boat is not an easy task by its own. Sometimes the search result in shipwreck or backpacker boat where everyone is sleeping on the deck.

How Living 3D2N in A Komodo Boat Trip Looks Like

I often heard disaster stories from fellow travelers with their wooden boats. Some pay too much for what they see in the ads, some end up with moody engines and almost left stranded in the ocean. Luckily, I’ve done my research and stumble upon a pretty awesome Komodo Liveaboard. I was travelling with a group of friend, and this Komodo boat trip happen to just everything we need.

Inside the Komodo Boat Trip: The Cabin

I was ready for a frugal adventure. I have prepared my camping sleeping pad and portable blanket if I need to sleep in the deck. At least my back won’t suffer from the hard wood. It turns out that the liveaboard have not one, but three very decent cabin for us. There were 10 people in our group, so the four of us must sleep in the same room. It was very nice, though. The larger room have one queen size bed and two bunk beds, which reminded us back to our college years.

the cabin with two bunk beds. Four people were sleeping there!

Many people I know was somewhat tolerating their wooden boat, but I honestly really enjoy my time here. The teak interior is really my favorite! I wouldn’t really enjoy my time there with sea sick stomach if it wasn’t because of the calming decor.

Surprise Toilet

Toilet with showers. In a Komodo boat tour. Can you believe it?

I have a few experiences with ships to cross Indonesian archipelago, and I never been any happier. There were too many times when a boat’s toilets acted as real party pooper (quite literally). That’s why I was taken aback when I found that our boat even have real shower on it! Gone by the days when you took a bath with awkward heart-shaped water scoop. Yay! Looking at that, I instantly know that we had choose the right Komodo boat trip.

A Day in The Deck

How Living 3D2N in A Komodo Boat Trip Looks Like

Instead of a messy pile of beanbags and sleeping bag, the deck looked like….an actual living space. Just like how a deck should. Yes, there’s still bean bags and mattresses, but they are actually for lounging instead of spending the night. The life in our Komodo boat trip was awesome thanks to the comfortable teak deck. You can waste your time by taking a hundred summer snaps from this stylish deck before reaching the next island.

An Actual Meal

I heard that our liveaboard is preparing meal for us, but what I expected is not what I deserved. My trip friends and I have prepared a bag full of snacks and drinks, just in case. When the first lunch time come, the crew in our Komodo boat trip prepared an amazing meal for us. Complete with fritters, too! Tea and coffee were always available, and you can always request a cold glass of cocktails.

The Journey

Despite of the hot and humid weather, our Komodo boat trip went very smooth. We stopped to Padar first before the dawn in our first morning for a hike. And oh boy, the view was magnificent. We spend one of the most amazing sunrise in our life, right in the top of Padar’s famous hilltop. The rest of the day was an amazing trekking and dreamy sunbathe in Padar’s pink beach.

Some of us done our snorkeler gear and looking for a meeting with manta in Manta Point. We go back for lunch, and spent the afternoon resting in the deck, enjoying the dramatic view. When the sun is about to go down, our Komodo boat trip stopped in the middle of ocean. We have no idea until the captain told us that we were floating near Kalong Island, island of the bats. It was the most wildest sunset I ever heard. Just as the sun sets, thousand of bats starts to fly from the island, crossing the tangy sky. They are looking for foods in the neighbourhood.

And have I mentioned you that we only have to pay $37 per person per night for such a very descent Komodo boat trip?
