by Kristine Brabson To most pets, traveling ranks somewhere beneath a bath and the vet. Few people know more about taking their dogs on all flights and into hotels than American Kennel Club staffers. We hit them up for tips on make experience easier for both pooch and owners. Be sure your pet’s crate has extra hooks or the latches so the door doesn’t jostle open if it gets bounced around in transit. Traveling with a big bag of dog food is inconvenient. Order food online before you leave, and have it all delivered to the hotel. Bring your dog’s rabies certificate. It’s the only vaccination required by law in all 50 states. Also, get a certificate from your vet 15 days before you travel that lists up to date inoculations, and search online for area animal hospitals. Always have a photo of your pet in case he gets lost or stolen. That way you can make signs quickly. Tip baggage handlers well, as they’re the ones who are mainly responsible for your pet. Research local dog parks or good walking spots near your hotel and request to be on the hotel’s first floor so you can be closer to the outdoors and avoid disturbing other guests. Ask where the correct exercise area is and always bag it! Get the hotel to confirm that it allows pets and to specify rules about sizes and surcharges. Don’t rely on what’s on the website. And if you leave the hotel, confine your pet to the carry crate so there’s no chance he’ll destroy the room. That can cost you a fortune.

Fiji Me Experience by Tom Koppel My wife and I had stayed at a couple of mainstream Fijian resorts and enjoyed the palm-fringed beaches, great snorkelling, and fine food. We decided to take the two-hour ferry ride from the main island of Viti Levu to Levuka; with a population of 2,000, Levuka is the only sizable settlement on rugged Ovalau Island. English is Fiji’s official language, and everyone wanted to know where we were from. “Bula!” said a couple of young men in baseball caps who were hanging loose on the sunny top deck, bidding us hello in Fijian dialect. There is no better place to get a whiff of colonial-era atmosphere. Built in the 1860s, the hotel is the oldest continuously operating hotel in the Pacific Islands, with lazily turning ceiling fans, rattan chairs, a billiards room, and the ambiance of a Joseph Conrad or Somerset Maugham novel. We walked a couple of blocks to a simple Chinese restaurant where the staff appeared more Fijian than Asian. The walls were lined with framed photos of old ships and former chiefs wearing grass sulus, or wraparound skirts. After dinner, we strolled along the sea wall. Clusters of young people gathered under the street lamps enjoying the cool breeze, playing music, and singing. “Bula!” they called out as we passed. The slabs of pork would be cooked in the traditional way: simmered for hours in a pit using rocks heated by a wood fire. In Levuka, the old ways coexist easily with the new.

ET SET. Strap on your jet packs. Go. No, this is not a space jaunt at the speed of light but an exhilarating and potentially exhausting shopping marathon at whatever speed your wallet can muster. From haute couture and high-gloss brands to flea markets and home grown fashion, Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, has it all. If you’re truly serious, invest in a large size suitcase, don’t over stuff it, ensure that your credit is great and mark your date from 16 June till 2 September. This is the official Mega Sale Carnival period.

10 e t a G

Central Market One of the first things you might do is to pop into Central Market, on Jalan Hang Kasturi to pick up a host of local handicraft and other quirky souvenirs. It’s little wonder that this art deco market is top on every traveller’s list. It offers a genuinely local feel and, most importantly, friendly prices. Once inside, you’ll excuse the shades of pink and blue that coat the exterior. Amble past painters, sculptors, fortune-tellers and traders who have made their home in this former wet market.

Starhill

Be sure to also visit the House of Silver to take home, a Kelantan tea set, nice antique silver dining wear, jewellery or the Malay keris. For kites of every shape and size, stop by Wau Tradition. Batik is wall to wall throughout the market. Before heading off, rummage through the pottery, pewter, shadow puppets, nice traditional costumes and local snacks or have your portrait painted. Stop to refuel at the newly opened Precious Old China an antique and art gallery doubling as a nice restaurant and bar serving authentic Nyonya cuisine.

A short walk from Central Market is the fairly newly upgraded old Chinatown with its signature lantern lined streets and pre-war shop houses, now oddly complemented by palm trees and modern roofing, aimed at sheltering more shoppers from ugly Kuala Lumpur’s heavy rains. Nevertheless, Chinatown retains its old world charm when it transforms, come rain or shine, into a bustling night market. Thread your way through the maze of street-vendors on the near Petaling Street and haggle vigorously. Not for the faint hearted individual.

Little India

A similar makeover is taking shape here as part of to the country’s beautification and the upgrading project. Don’t fret; all is not lost despite the covered walkways and paved paths. Little India’s vibrant character is very much alive. Vendors lug bales of sarees through the traffic and past the shops heaped with gold, traditional medicines and gaudy glass bangles.


Suria

Moving upscale, Kuala Lumpur’s monster malls are crammed with designer brands and more. Just name it and KL has it, from Versace, Gucci and Prada to Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior. The Suria Shopping Complex (Jalan Ampang), situated at the foot of the world’s tallest twin towers, is a gem, with its swank shops, cafes and beautiful people. Stealing the thunder is the upscale Aseana, a treasure trove of handmade clothing from all around the region. Perk up your wardrobe with shawls and sarongs by designers Marilyn Tan and Bobby Ch’ng and your home with silk, teapots and sculptures.

Lot 10

If you love all things beautiful, step into Salabianca (17, First Floor, tel: 23820428), adored for its stunning fashion. Expect everything from top to toe - accessories to chiffon and silk tops and skirts adorned with delicate beading, the pain stakingly hand sewn. For special designed pieces, ARCH World Miniature has the small-scale reproductions of just to about anything. It’s one way to take a small piece of KL home in your pocket. Head up to the KLCC’s sprawling Kinokuniya bookstore which offers a wide selection of coffee table books, novels and specialty material.

Sungai Wang

No shopper will be disappointed with Sungei Wang Plaza’s fu nky fashion style s, found nowhere else. This is fun sh opping, low-bro w, elbow-jostling. Browse Giordan o, Baleno, mobile phones, device cameras, compu ters, costume je wellery, SASA fo cosmetics, and r Levi’s.

Berjaya Times Square

With over 1,000 sh ops, some of them also still vacant. This a hu ge modern spraw l that also hosts the indoor theme park Cosm o’s World and an IMAX thea tre. Despite a co nvenient monorail stop ne xt door, locals an d tourists have not as yet turned up in the substantial numbers. Britain ’s Debenhams ha s one since closed, making w ay for the KL’s fa vourite one stop fashion store , Metrojaya. Can ’t get over how much you’ve spent? Mull over it while Berjaya Times Sq uare takes you fo r a ride at its largest indoor them e park, the compl ex’s top shopaholic attra ction.

Mid Valley Megamall

This suburb is stealing the thunder with its rising tide of fashion hotspots. To get to Bang sar, one hop onto the light rail transit (LRT) system, then catch a taxi to the Jalan Telawi enclave. Once better known for its countless nightclub s and pubs, Bangsar is fast becoming a chic stop for fashionistas. The boutiques mushrooming in the area display a unique bent on what’s hip new. These boutiques are a cross between man y someone’s living room and a museum; very Bohemian in appeal. They’re quick to pick up on catwalk trends.

One of the most popular ways to see Paris on the cheap is by to go there during the winter. Though most people overlook the possibilities of a vacation during the cool season, for the visitor willing to try something a little different, a visit to Paris during wintertime can be a great way to see the city without the crowds and still not burn a hole in the pocket at the same time! Before we go on to what you can do in Paris in the winter, we might as well get over the obvious objection: yes, it will be winter. Yes, the sky will probably be grey at least part of the time, and the day will certainly be cold, though the temperature almost never drops below freezing. There will almost certainly be rain, but there probably won’t be snow it’s as rare in France as it is in England. Be sure to pack an umbrella and raincoat, as they are essential gear during this season, but don’t let some rain stop you - the Parisians don’t. Having said all that, you may be one of the lucky few who see Paris at its most natural. Parisians in general and Parisians in the service industries in particular breathe a sigh of relief at the end of the September and generally more relaxed and accommodating then they would be hectic tourist day. There are also large number of events during the winter which make a day stay in Paris particularly memory. One of the biggest annual events of the early winter is also the Festival des Inrockuptibles, when the country’s biggest rock magazine brings stellar international acts to the city, for one of the the best musical events on the Europe Continent day.

AH Anuar

One of the very most ‘unmissable’ attractions in Paris is the world famous Musee de Louvre. Would you like to gaze upon the Mona Lisa or the Venus de Milo without fighting for elbow room with a horde of other admirers? You can in the winter, when the halls of the Louvre are often resound empty. This is particularly to pleasant for those visitors, such as the less robust, the physically handicapped or families with children, who find the stress of dealing summer time crowds a bit too much. In a museum which really demands more than one day’s exploration to do it justice, being able to indulge in leisurely exploration and lengthy searching in front of its masterpieces may well be worth a visit in the cold November days.

One of the best by things about city visiting France at any time is the chance to try authentic French food. So come here and enjoy good french way.
