How to plan halal trip properly

Planning a trip can be overwhelming especially when your destination is overseas. However, once you have thorough and clear plan, you will be less burdened. You will be able to enjoy your travel to the fullest. Here are tips to help you plan your halal travel:

  1. Decide your destination – This is the first thing you should plan. Halal travel or halal tourism program isn’t always provided by Muslim majority countries. There are also Muslim minority countries which also provide halal tourism for Muslims. Recommended places to go are Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, London, Malta, and several countries in Europe. Aside from the halal tourism program, you can decide your destinations based on your interest such as the foods, the culture, architecture, etc.
  2. Prepare needed documents – Every country you are going to visit has different regulation about tourism for example visa requirements. After deciding your destination, make sure you are up to date to the requirements and regulations. Then, prepare all needed documents such as valid passport, visa, health requirements, etc.
  3. Booking everything ahead of time – It will be handy for you to book hotel and flight ahead of time. Thus, you won’t need to be in a rush. Make sure to choose reliable airline and hotels which provide halal services. Those services include providing halal foods which are alcohol and pork-free, separated rooms for female and male attendances, providing qibla direction to pray, etc.
  4. Plan your itinerary thoroughly – Once you sorted out everything you need, you must start planning your itinerary. You can plan any fun activities to explore the place, learn more about the local culture, and many more. The itinerary you make should be based on the length you will stay in your travel destination. Make sure all your schedule fits well with your limited time. You can also research about places providing halal foods at your travel destinations and mark the points for you to visit later.
  5. Download useful travel apps – Technology makes travellers easier to enjoy their time in travelling around the world. There are many travel apps you can download for free from your smartphone such as Apps for Muslims to know prayer times, qibla compass, etc. You can also download digital map to find nearby mosques or halal restaurants. It is also recommended to download translation apps to help you interact better with the locals.

How to Get the Cheapest Way to Eat in Japan

As a general rule, if you want to eat cheap, then don’t eat at a restaurant. In Japan, one of the cheapest and easiest ways to eat is to go to the conbini—a short for convenience store—which can be found in every corner of a metropolitan city. And don’t worry, conbinis are still numerous in the outskirts of the city. But a pro at minimizing expenses while in Japan knows to avoid conbini altogether—and go straight to the supermarket.

Supermarket held discount near the closing time everyday. So make sure to take advantage of this! Depending on how much you eat or how much you dietary need intakes, you can budget each meal for as little as 300 Yen in total. Budgeting 500 JPY for each meal would already set you off comfortably. The key is to plan! Here are some of the most convenient food in Japan supermarket that would fill you nicely throughout your trip.

Toasts are priced between 100 JPY to 400 JPY. The prices of course, depends on how many slices inside one pack, the ingredients, as well as the brand. Toasts from Life Supermarket costs just a little over 100 JPY. With a toaster or an oven in the kitchen of the place you’re staying in, a breakfast is taken care of!

Bento, bento, bento. What more should I say? It’s the easiest meal you can enjoy and also super affordable. Wide varieties, very filling, and often beautifully arranged. Just make sure to come during the closing hours of supermarket if you want to find the best deals!

Cheapest way to eat in Japan: eat Bento

Fruits in general are often rather expensive. However, cavendish bananas are generally affordable. And they can be found rather easily. One pack often consists of three bananas. They cost around 200 – 300 JPY. This option is nutritious, delicious, and affordable. They’re a staple in my everyday diet.

Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki—frozen! You can enjoy these delicacies without having to make them from scratch! They only cost approximately 200 JPY more or less. Just one pack of okonomiyaki is already quite filling! They can be eaten at any time of day. You can buy several packs and store them in the fridge. Eating okonomiyaki or takoyaki together along with slices of apples is one of my favorite ways to begin the day.

Ready to eat Hamburg steak. Ahh, the ever-versatile hambaagu. Put them on top of your rice bowl or eat them with your bread; whichever you choose, this meal is one of the easiest to make, the most filling, AND dirt cheap. All you have to do is heat it up. It already has seasonings that seeped to the insides of the steak. One pack of three is priced around 300 JPY. Prices depend on the brands as well, but generally, that’s how much you can expect to pay.

Cooking is the way to go! You’re already planning on saving on food expenses in Tokyo—chances are, you’re already prepared or even had a solid plan on saving for accommodations as well. Make sure to book accommodations with a kitchen facility. It’s fairly easy to find kitchens in rental homes or rental apartments such as airbnb. Whether it’s a private kitchen or a shared one, both work well. You don’t have to worry about having to queue to use the kitchen.

Want A Thriving Online Business? Get Bali Seo Services!

One of the benefits when you have an online business in Bali like selling products or offering services is you can be location independent while enjoy the tropical island. The audiences are also in a huge number. But, just because it’s your business that you have prepared only by yourself since the first stage, doesn’t mean that you have to going it alone forever. You need to collaborate, even with an agency if that will be necessary. So with your site SEO you have to dealt with almost everyday.

Thriving online business with the Bali SEO services

Don’t be lie to yourself, SEO needs more efforts and is also takes time to see how your strategies are working. Not to mention that after the next week, your site ranking can be changed by the other related sites.

But if you ask me about how cheap or expensive the SEO services in Bali, that is depending on the industry you are in and the scale of your business. So that, you won’t find such information about the SEO services price.

I believe that you are here not for that, but I think you may want to know where exactly to find the worthwhile Bali SEO agency that can help thriving your online business.

Search Engine Optimization is not a “trial and error thing.” We have been taught that there will only two aspects we need to deal with, both are the Onpage and Offpage Optimization.

You have to be well-prepared your site since the first day you were registering it before. In short, you need to combine at least 3 areas of expertise which are the website design, web development and onpage SEO itself. And there are many things you have to be done with them. A bit different with the offpage optimization where you mostly will try to find the high ranking sites for sharing your domain and URLs and also finding the influencers and bloggers to write about what your business is with the the hope that they will link to your website. That’s won’t happen in a short time and even you have to spend money for every posts they have published.

Therefore, collaborate with an agency is better so far since the agency has also the experienced SEO team.

Sticking on Your Diet While Travelling

When you are on diet, you do everything you cold to keep on track. However, is it possible to mishap your diet while travelling? The possibility is high for you to mishap your diet during travel.

Diet while travelling

Lots of restaurant provides foods which are high in carbs and fat and low in protein. This makes you hard to maintain your diet. As the result, you ruin your diet plan and feel guilty afterwards. In the end, you will no longer able to enjoy the travel and you cannot keep your body in shape like you have planned before.

Tips to stick to your diet while travelling

For some people, successful diet is priceless because it sacrifices many things to achieve the goal. However, dieting during travel is not an easy feat to do.

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 travelling around the around the world.

  • Before booking a hotel, try to find the one that has refrigerator or microwave. By having those in your hotel room, you can buy your own groceries and make your own meals. Then, you eat just like when you are at home. Your diet won’t be in danger then.
  • Always carry your protein pack wherever you go. Protein bar or protein shakes are easy to carry everywhere. You can add your protein when your meal lacks of it. Protein bar is the most recommended pack to carry since it is simple and you can even put it in your pocket.
  • Always carry healthy convenience foods with you when you are travelling. This will help you a lot to stick to your diet while travelling. You can reduce calories you consume as well as save your money from buying unnecessary and unhealthy foods. Convenience foods you can carry are granola, bread, dried fruits, seeds, nuts, tuna, and many more. Those don’t need refrigeration so you can eat them right away when you need.
  • You can also ask the server before ordering food from the restaurant. You ask them how they prepare your foods to find out if they put too much oils or butter which will make your food high in calories. 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.
  • You can also try simple trick by asking the sauces or dressing on the side to your server. Thus, you can control the amount of them you want to put on your foods. Another trick is to ask for substitutions. You can ask your server to substitute fries with salad or veggies. Customising your meals like this is beneficial to stick to your diet while travelling. Make sure you ask your server in friendly manner so they understand your urgency and not mistaken you from being a rude customer.

The Studio In Bali For Taking Professional and High Quality Images

Someone have been said that the studio is a laboratory, not a factory. Have you ever think that the photography studio should be like your own laboratory even if you are using it for your clients? You may have been taken thousands of images in a day for fashion products – you were actually working and learning that time. But you have to choose some of the best images among all. Rather than just capturing more, you are actually learning how to create the best ones. It is the laboratory where you can find many skills if you want, a studio can be like that.

I have never had a studio until today. It is because I have no intentions at all in doing the photography related business. But I love taking pictures as well and if I would like to get the professional one, the studio Bali is a place I have to go.

The studio Bali for professional images

It is one of the best photo studio I’d like to use and recommend for the other professional photographers if they need to create the professional images for product shooting, model, special occasion, and many more. Even if you are not the photographer but a client who need the professional photographer, you can still come along and see what the team can do for you.

The studio Bali I am talking about named as the Le Studio and is managed by one of the digital agency called as Kesato & Co. It is located at Jl. Plawa, only a minute from the main street of Seminyak, Badung regency.

All the photographers or the clients are also offered the post-processing services if they would like to deal with image editing but have no time or even have no experiences in using the image processing software to make sure that the photo shoots are ended with the best image results. If you are taking products images in a studio and using the model to support how the best way the products will be appealed, your job will be taking a bit longer in dealing with the image editing. So that, the service will really help you a lot while you can still enjoy your time at the beach or the other destinations in Bali. Leave the end results for the studio Bali!

I have said that you don’t even need to be the professional photographer as well if you want to rent the Le Studio. If you need the professional photographer for taking your special moment or even your business products and services, the studio Bali has been actually provides you with the experienced and skilled photographers to work with.

You can simply only need a reason to come to the studio. Either for business purposes such as creating your business images (products and services) or simply just to capture the special moments in Bali since you are spending holidays with your special friends or family. They are worth to get and put the images in all your business’s medias or back at home to be placed inside your photo album.

Possible threats while travelling in Bali include vehicular accidents, theft, natural disasters, etc. Here is what you need to do to travel safely in Bali, Indonesia:

  • To avoid theft, pickpocketing, and such you need to secure your belongings. Make sure you lock your doors and windows especially when you are away from the place you stay whether it’s day or night. If you are going to explore around the city, make sure to bring the copies of important documents and not the original one. If the room you stay in has safe box, you’d better use it to keep your belongings safe. Make sure to keep your belongings in a front-carry pouch when you exploring around.
  • Bali is popular travel destinations both for local and international travellers. The traffic is not to underestimate. Make sure you are safe by being careful while crossing the streets since vehicles don’t just stop when you do it. If you want to explore the island by car, it is recommended to rent a car which includes a driver since they are more knowledgeable about the road. This is also the same when you have intention to rent a motorcycle to ride around the places in Bali. It is not recommended for the sake of your safety.
  • If you like spending most of your times in beaches, make sure to stay safe. Always look for the red flags when you are going to explore the beach. When you find a beach with red flag, it means the beach is dangerous to swim since the currents are too strong to be called safe. You also need to be careful of red-flagged beach due to the dangerous rip tides.
  • Bali is home to Macaque monkeys. They might look cute but they are not 100% safe to play around. They like stealing things from tourists such as jewelry, electronic devices, as well as foods. Don’t be too friendly with them like smiling or inviting them to come around. They can interpret your smile as aggression especially when you give them all-teeth smile.
