Balik kampung for CNY....drive safely!

Finally....the wait is over! It's the 'balik kampung' time! I will be travelling back to Ipoh to celebrate CNY from JB and it will gonna be a long drive. I prayed for good weather these few days and may everyone drive carefully and stayed alert on the roads. It's always a great feeling driving home for a festive season like CNY.

Simple things to note (or reminders)  if you are the driver :-

- Have a good night sleep
- Keep a good mood and refrain from taking calls on work as it may spoilt your mood
- Drive within the speed limit
- Take occasional breaks every 1-2 hours during driving
- Do not hesitate to ask your partner to take over, if he/she can drive so that you can rest
- Plan your journey, if you are visiting some towns for lunch, make sure you have sufficient time
- Send your car for servicing before the journey. Ensure your spare tyre is fill up.
- Pump sufficient petrol, as there are journeys which are difficult to find petrol kiosks.
- Play some CNY songs in the car, if you like it. This will give you some sense of holiday mood.
- Be patience if there's a traffic jam.
- If possible, plan your journey earlier and avoid the balik kampung rush......

Stay well, enjoy the journey as well as have a good journey!
