5 Tips For Preparing For An Emergency

How do you truly prepare for an emergency in these economic times? With all of the natural disasters happening all over the world I believe that it is imperative to have an emergency plan and kit ready… just in case. I was always taught to prepare a 72 hour emergency kit (at the very least) for each person in my household. While I am still in the process of doing this (it takes a while to gather everything), here are a few tips that I have learned along the way:

1. What to Include:

Camping Gear: If you have camping gear (i.e. tents, portable bbq, fishing gear, pots and pans, etc.) have it readily available to take with you in case you need to gather your stuff and leave your home in a hurry. If you don’t have a place to stay for a little while the tents and other camping gear can help you survive for a while.

Food Items: When purchasing food items for my emergency kit I like to purchase food that I know my family will actually eat… not like some of the dehydrated items that come in pre-prepared emergency kits. I purchase things like tuna, beans, spaghetti sauce (and noodles), etc. Think about it – if you are out in the wild fending for yourself because of a natural disaster, what would be worse than eating food that you can’t stand? It would at least give a little light to an otherwise dim situation.

Misc. Items:You can’t forget to also store hygiene products (i.e. feminine items, shampoo and conditioner, brushes / combs, hair ties, towels, razors and shaving cream, etc.), or other things that you use regularly and may not even think about putting into an emergency kit (i.e. trash bags, dish soap, laundry soap, disposable plates, disposable eating utensils, etc.).

Water: Don’t forget the water!!! We should always be drinking plenty of water, but we use water for so many other things, too… and most people don’t think about this. We use water to cook, wash dishes, wash clothing, shower, use the bathroom, etc.

2. How to Store Emergency Items:

I like to store all of my camping and emergency kit items in plastic tubs, which are also numbered. The plastic tubs make it easier to shove into the back of a car and the items are protected from most everything. For storing your water, many times you can purchase 55 gallon drums of water to store in your back yard for fairly cheap. Just make sure you use the correct chemicals to treat the water, or it won’t be usable later. I also like to have several 1 gallon bottles of water on hand in the event that we need to leave our home.

3. Changing Out Items with Expiration Dates:

I also like to number the tubs and keep a complete inventory list, along with food expiration dates, so I can change canned items out prior to the expiration. Every six months I go through my inventory list and take out items that are going to expire in the next 6 months and I replace those items with new items. I can then work that food into the meals I cook so the food doesn’t go to waste.

4. Where to store it:

Store your emergency kit somewhere that is easily accessible. We have all of our camping gear and emergency kits located in the front corner of our garage. This way, if there is an emergency, we can open the garage, pack up, and leave. But, don’t let them get blocked in the garage or a shed where you can’t get to them in a hurry. If it’s an emergency, then you will be in a hurry.

5. Have a plan:

Have an emergency plan in place in case you have to leave your home and you can’t reach your spouse. Our emergency plan consists of meeting at a specific place if we can’t reach each other and we have to leave our home / jobs. We will wait there until we either reach the other person or the other person arrives. You should have at least two destinations in your plan in the event that the first destination is inaccessible.

Always include your children in on your plans. They need to know that Mom and Dad have a plan in advance. Children learn from the time they are in Kindergarten what to do in case of an earthquake, fire, and in some areas tornadoes. They are already being prepared, so let them know what the plan is for your family – the different routes to exit your home, where you will meet, etc. If, for whatever reason, you are separated and you are to meet your family at a school or park in case of an emergency you would be surprised at how children will remember this and tell adults around them that they need to get to that place to meet their family. Kids are smart… don’t underestimate their abilities.

Tips For Backpacking in Kuala Lumpur

INTRODUCTION
Kuala Lumpur (or “KL” in short) is one of the cheapest cities in Asia for a vacation. Foreign currency exchange rates of the Pound Sterling and US Dollar, for instance, as against the Malaysian Ringgit are highly favourable. Backpacking is popular as the city has a very low crime rate and English is widely spoken. If you need directions, or wish to order food from a hawker stall rest assured that someone will be able to communicate with you in English. However, some planning is in order to stretch your vacation money to the maximum if you are a backpacker.

CHEAP AIR FARES
Malaysia’s AirAsia and Singapore’s SilkAir are two low-cost carriers that can fly you cheaply from many destinations around the world to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore respectively. (From Singapore, you can take a bus or train to Kuala Lumpur). For details of the flight schedules and fares of AirAsia and SilkAir, please check their websites. Another Malaysian budget airline is Fireflyz which caters mostly to domestic destinations in the country; however, it links Kuala Lumpur with Medan and Bandar Acheh (both in Indonesia) and Phuket in Thailand.

To get the best prices for budget airlines, bookings have to be made at least a few months ahead. It is also best to avoid the Malaysian school holidays which fall during December, mid-March and mid-August.

The airplanes of AirAsia land at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) about two kilometres from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at Sepang, which is 60 km from Kuala Lumpur. The cheapest way to get to KLIA from the LCCT is by shuttle bus operated by two companies; namely Nadi KL and Airport Liner. Fare is only RM 1.50 per person per way. The pick-up point is from Platform 8, bus station at Ground Floor, Car Park C. Frequencies of the buses are 15 – 20 minutes. From KLIA, the economical way to get to the capital is by airport coach. Fireflyz’s aeroplanes land at Sultan Abdul Aziz Airport in Subang, about 15 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur.

WHERE TO STAY
The most popular area for backpackers to stay in KL is Chinatown. Its heart is Jalan Petaling (Petaling Street). Accommodation ranges from simple bed-and-breakfast inns with communal bathrooms to one-star and two-star hotels that are air-conditioned. (Hotels in Malaysia are rated by a star system, ranging from one to a maximum of five stars; those without any star rating are classified as “budget”). Another advantage of staying in Chinatown is its closeness to Puduraya bus station. This is the main station for buses going to other cities in the country. Chinatown is also within walking distance to the KL Monorail station on Jalan Maharajalela and also the STAR Light Rail Transit station near the Central Market. Chin Woo Stadium which has a swimming pool that is open to the public for a nominal fee is just 20 minutes away by foot from Jalan Petaling. Perched atop a hillock, it is a great place to cool down after a day of hectic sightseeing.

My second recommendation for accommodation is Brickfields, near Stesen Sentral (Central Station), which is the city’s rail transportation hub. All Light Rail Transit (LRT) trains stop here, including the KLIA Ekpres that plies to and from Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The five-star Hilton Kuala Lumpur and Le Meredian are located within the complex. However, just across Jalan Tun Sambanthan are affordable accommodations. They include Hotel Summer View, De Sentral Hotel, Mexico Hotel and Hotel Florida to mention but a few — they all come with air-conditioning and attached bathrooms. A few inns that one rung down the price ladder are also available, including the YMCA. The negative point about this area is the lack of evening activities. Also, food is mainly confined to vegetarian eateries and Indian fan-ventilated restaurants serving banana leaf curry rice.

A useful contact is the Malaysia Budget Hotel Association at No. 52 Tengkat Tong Shin, 50200 Kuala Lumpur. Tel: +603-21412313. Fax: +603-21439313. Email: mbha1 @tm.net.my. Website: budgethotel.org.my

WHERE TO EAT
Finding cheap and hygienic food is probably the least of all problems for backpackers. Countless alfresco stalls are found in hawker centres. Two popular havens for cheap hawker food are Jalan Alor and Jalan Petaling. A meal with a fruit juice or soft drink can cost as little as RM6! For more comfort, go to the food courts of shopping complexes, which are often tucked away in the basement. Fast food outlets such as McDonald, Pizza Hut, Domino’s Pizza, Kentucky Fried Chicken to mention but a few are scattered in many parts of the city. For Indian fare, go to Lebuh Ampang; Malay food is aplenty in the districts of Chow Kit and Kampung Baru. Avoid 24-hour Mamak (Indian Muslim) eateries unless you want to take the slight risk of a stomach upset. The food (fish, chicken, squid, etc) on display in glass containers in such eateries may have been heated and re-heated umpteen times. Order something that is cooked on the spot instead such as fried rice, fried noodles or chicken chop to guarantee that what you eat is fresh. To cut costs on food, my recommendation is to try roti canai (a type of pancake) in the morning which can cost as little as RM1.50 per piece. Variations such as roti canai with egg, sardine or banana are also available. Two or three pieces washed down with the “the tarik” (literally means “pulled tea” ) will give you sufficient fuel for your tramping around. All major shopping complexes also have food courts that offer local food at decent prices.

TRAVELLING AROUND
Travelling around KL by taxi can be an expensive affair. The fare meter keeps ticking even though the vehicle is stuck in a massive jam, and this can burn a hole in your pocket. A ploy by a few black-sheep drivers is to take the longest possible route to your destination. Worst, a few drivers may refuse to use the meter and insist on an exorbitant flat fee. On rainy days, especially, it is a take-it-or-leave-it situation. Remember, there is also a surcharge for travelling after midnight and for putting luggage in the boot.

Though buses cover most parts of the city, it can be difficult for foreigners to find out the routes of each bus. Most buses don’t have conductors, and passengers drop the correct fare in coins into the ticket vending machine. If you drop in excess fare, you will not be given any change.

Despair not! The city has a network of train systems (referred to as Light Rail Transit or “LRT” in short) that run on elevated rails, (and sometimes underground) that can whizz you from one part of the city to another, whereupon you can take a short stroll to your desired destination. Rail maps showing the different stops can be found in all the train stations. Services usually start from 6am till midnight. Three LRT trains are in operation: STAR LRT, Putra LRT and KL Monorail. They each have a different route but you can change trains at Stesen Sentral (Central Station).

AFFORDABLE SHOPPING COMPLEXES
Avoid all shopping malls in the city’s Golden Triangle unless you just aim to browse around. This area is bounded by Jalan Bukit Bintang, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Raja Chulan. Tucked within the area are Lot 10, KL Plaza, Sungei Wang Plaza, BB Plaza, Low Yat Plaza and Starhill Shopping Complex that are targeted at middle- to upper-class shoppers. The same advice applies to the highly popular Suria KLCC in the podium block of the PETRONAS Twin Towers and Mid Valley on the Federal Highway. However, affordable shopping complexes can be found around Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, nicknamed “Kuala Lumpur’s “Golden Mile”. They include Pertama Complex, Campbell Complex, and independent stores such as Mydin and Globe Silk Store. In the fringe of Chinatown, Kotaraya Complex, UDA Ocean and S&M Shopping Arcade also offer excellent for value-for-money buys. Not to be missed is Jalan Petaling, which is chocked with stalls selling almost everything, especially cheap imitations of prestigious watches and leather goods as well as pirated VCDs of the latest Hollywood movies. Haggling is the order of the day. Highly popular with tourists, Central Market on Jalan Hang Kasturi specializes in collectibles, souvenirs and also has an excellent food court. Cultural performances are also held at scheduled times, and best of all, they are free. Haji Taib Hawker Centre in Chow Kit is good for jeans and second-clothes but the area suffers from a bad reputation. “Pasar malam” or “night markets” are held in Kampung Baru and Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman every Saturday evening. These spots offer excellent opportunities to try local fare at dirt-cheap prices.

TRAVEL LITERATURE
There is no need to throw away your hard-earned money on expensive travel guides. You can get free travel literature such as maps and brochures from tourist information centres operated by Tourism Malaysia. They are located as follows:

Stesen Sentral (Central Station)
Lot 21, 2nd Floor, Arrival Hall, Kuala Lumpur City Air Terminal, Stesen KL Sentral, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Phone: +603-2272 5823

Kuala Lumpur International Airport
Visitor Service Centre, International Arrival Hall, KLIA, Sepang 64000, Selangor
Phone: +603-877 656 47 / 51

Malaysia Tourist Centre (MTC)
109 Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur 50450
Phone: +603-9235 4848 / 9235 4900 Fax: +603-2162 1149
(Tourists are allowed a maximum of 20 minutes free internet surfing here!)

Putra World Trade Centre
Level 2, Putra World Trade Centre, 45 Jalan Tun Ismail, PWTC,
50480 Kuala Lumpur
Phone: +603-2615 8540 Fax: + 603-2692 4554
(Note: Putra World Trade Centre is located next to the Best Western Premier Seri Pacific Hotel).

Another helpful spot is Kuala Lumpur Tourism Association (Tel. no. +603-22871830), which is head-quartered in a charming wooden shack in the grounds of the National Museum on Jalan Damansara.

IF IN DOUBT, ASK, ASK, ASK!
Kuala Lumpur has a sizeable population of Bangladeshi, Indonesian, Vietnamese and Myanmar contract workers. Most of them work as waiters, petrol pump attendants or retail sales persons. Avoid asking for information or directions from such foreigners. Also, avoid touts who offer to take you on a walkabout. The most reliable sources of information are front liners in the tourist information centres, and personnel manning information counters in shopping complexes. The owner of the budget hotel you are staying can also provide useful advice. A word of assurance is in order: Kuala Lumpur has a Tourist Police unit that has a high profile in the Golden Triangle, so your safety is highly assured. Enjoy your stay in Kuala Lumpur and happy backpacking!

Six Health Tips for Travellers to India

With its multi-layered history and dazzling cultural diversity, India is a richly rewarding place to visit. In order to enjoy this mesmerizing country to the full you need to stay fit and well and this means being pro-active about your health.

If you are a first time visitor, then the chances are you will get at least one bout of the dreaded ‘Delhi Belly’ (nasty attack of diarrhoea) simply because the bacterial flora you will meet in India is quite different from the one your system is used to.

To make sure that a mild attack of the runs is the only thing that troubles you, there are a number of precautions you can take and some of these are summarized below.

Medical kit
Most modern medicines for routine problems are available in India so there is no need to arrive laden with pharmaceuticals, unless you are on a specific medication. But it is sensible to always have with you a simple kit including Band-Aids, antiseptic, bug-repellent, ‘Imodium’ or ‘Lomotil’ (for dire emergency), sun-screen, rehydration salts and an antihistamine cream to treat insect bites.

Personal hygiene
No one is suggesting that there is anything wrong with your personal hygiene regime, but you do have to be extra careful in India. Carry a hand-sanitizer gel, wash your hands often, keep finger nails short, and treat minor cuts and wounds immediately.

Drink only bottled water and avoid ice
Bottled water is widely available and you should never drink anything else except in dire emergency. When you buy a bottle of water, especially in a remote area, do check that the seal is secure and unhampered with. It is not unknown for empty plastic water bottles to be refilled with tap water but it should be possible to spot these rogue bottles. Avoid ice in drinks if you can.

If you get Delhi Belly
If you do get a mild attack of travellers’ diarrhoea then try to avoid taking medicine. Just rest up for a day or two and let things take their course. Drink plenty of non-alcoholic liquids and use your rehydration salts (widely available at medical shops if you don’t have them with you). Locals advise a diet of mint tea, papaya and yogurt. Don’t take ‘Lomotil’ or ‘Imodium’ (or similar) unless you really have to travel, in which case they can be helpful, but avoid using them if you can. Don’t take antibiotics unless a doctor has prescribed them. A doctor’s help should be sought for major problems, such as blood or pus in stools, and/or fever. Also consult a doctor for persistent, recurring problems.

Food safety
Avoid street food until you have been in India for some months and your gut has acclimatized. Even so, you must be very careful. Eat only freshly cooked food and avoid raw fruits and salads unless you have prepared them yourself. Try to avoid food that is very oily and spicy. If you have a delicate digestion then going vegetarian is a good idea. South Indian vegetarian food is generally lighter and less oily than the Mughlai-style cooking of north India.

Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes in India carry several nasty diseases including malaria. If you are coming to India for a short time, you should discuss with your doctor whether to take anti-malarial pills. In some Western countries public health services require citizens to use such preventives when they travel in malaria-afflicted countries or they cannot claim treatment at home if they contract the disease.

If you are in the country for a long time, it is not practical to take anti-malarials all the time and you should instead focus on not getting bitten. Wear a long-sleeved shirt and pants, especially in the early morning and evening. Avoid dressing in black as that attracts ‘mossies’. Bring a good repellent with you (preferably containing Deet) or use the Indian brand ‘Odomos’, which is effective but slightly sticky. To prevent being bitten while asleep, you can burn the locally available mosquito coils or use a mosquito net.
