Eurostar Tickets - Cannot Be Purchased From Malaysia

I’ve been so busy doing doing researches about London & Paris – just to make sure everything’s gonna go smoothly when I get on my trip to those two most prominent cities in Europe next month. I ran thru dozens of forums and blogs and websites just to get the best descriptions. I have to do it because I’m gonna TRAVEL ON MY OWN... Walaaa... Am I nuts? Well, I proabably am. But this has always been my dream so I’m just gonna go for it. Thanks to this marvellous ‘google map’, with it’s fantastic satellite map, it really helps. And the 3-D version, jeez, it makes me feel like I’m already there!


Those blogs and forums describe things as if everything is just so easy. None of them has actually decribed that Eurostar tickets cannot be purchased using local credit cards (those registered to Malaysian banks). Aiyooo. What la??? They are not being helpful enough. Everybody knows that London is full of museums, and Eiffel Tower is the highest standing structure in Paris but how are we gonna get there is the most important thing to know. I’m going there on a budget so getting the best deals is what I’m aiming for. I’m not among one of those filthy rich people where expenses are not a matter of concern. They say to get the best deal is by booking early. That’s what I intend to do – booking a London-Paris Eurostar return tickets but how to do it? Malaysia is not even listed in the ‘country of residence’ box. Then the contact details tagged with ‘mandatory’, meaning you have to fill it up or they’ll slap you with an ‘error’ pop-up.



Luckily my friend Nelda (thanks :-)) who is married to an English man and staying in London has come to my rescue (and thanks to Facebook for getting us back in contact). She bought it on-line from there. So, Paris, here I come!!!




Errr... Not this one punya Paris laa....

*****Nelda did some research on purchasing Eurostar tickets from Malaysia - she posted this Q&A long after I had long published this post. It goes like this...

and you what... I found this on the Q&A...

Question : My country is not listed in the drop down menu, how do I make a booking? Answer When making a booking you will be asked to select your country from a list in a drop down box.

Answer: If your country is not listed, please select your country as United Kingdom and enter your address in the blank boxes. You will then need to select to collect your tickets from the station. Tickets can be collected from the station on any day prior to departure.

anyway... we've booked it already... and we know for next time kan..

Now we know laa....

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

In 1959 phentermine first received approval from the FDA as an appetite suppressing drug. Phentermine hydrochloride then became available in the early 1970s. It was previously sold as Fastin from King Pharmaceuticals for SmithKline Beecham, however in 1998 it was removed from the market. Medeva Pharmaceuticals sells the name brand of phentermine called Ionamin and Gate Pharmaceuticals sells it as Adipex-P. Phentermine is also currently sold as a generic. Since the drug was approved in 1959 there have been almost no clinical studies performed. The most recent study was in 1990 which combined phentermine with fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine and became known as Fen-Phen.[citation needed]
In 1997 after 24 cases of heart valve disease in Fen-Phen users, fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine were voluntarily taken off the market at the request of the FDA. Studies later proved that nearly 30% of people taking fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine had abnormal valve findings. The FDA did not ask manufacturers to remove phentermine from the market.
[url=http://www.buyphentermine1.com]buy phentermine[/url] Phentermine is still available by itself in most countries, including the U.S. However, because it is similar to amphetamines, it is classified as a controlled substance in many countries (including Australia). Internationally, phentermine is a schedule IV drug under the Convention on Psychotropic Substances.[1] In the United States, it is classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act.
Looking forward, Phentermine is being studied with another medication for obesity. The experimental appetite suppressant drug Qnexa is a mixture of Phentermine and Topiramate.
Phentermine, in doses clinically used, works on the hypothalamus portion of the brain to release norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter or chemical messenger that signals a fight-or-flight response, reducing hunger. Phentermine works outside the brain as well to release epinephrine or adrenaline causing fat cells to break down stored fat, but the principal basis of efficacy is hunger-reduction. At high doses, phentermine releases serotonin and dopamine as well, but such doses are never used in clinical medicine.

Remember that online casinos can afford to do this because they simply do not have the overhead that their brick and mortar land-based counterparts have. Equally, there is no excuse for an online casino NOT to be honest for exactly the same reason. They can offer free casino chips AND be an honest online casino in circumstances where their physical equivalents would find the financial burden impossible.



1. He fully read the casino bonuses and promotions page. This sounds like common sense, but it's important to read the fine print. Many casinos offer a special terms of Service page for each individual casino bouns. Casinos make their money by "giving" you a promotional bonus and requiring you to gamble for just long enough so that in theory you lose your initial deposit and the bonus amount. This requirement is called the "play through requirement". Knowing the play through requirement and the odds of the game you are going to play are important. Because if you can find a casino that offers a low play through requirement and high enough bonus you could (in theory) make money for as long as your eligible for the bonus.

The online casinos do offer free drinks or hotel room, but it offers free money, lotteries, and more stuff. One of the advantages of playing in online casinos is that you can save money on airline tickets, hotel rooms and that you think you can earn that money or use of this money to play in the online casinos. Drawbacks to play in the online casinos is that you do not get the free drinks while you play and you do not get to go out to clubs or places like if you go to Las Vegas.


It is very important that the casino you choose to register for the offer at any of your favorite games, such as virtual table games, slots and rollers. The online casinos usually have a list of games they offer on their website to see the potential players. In case your favorite games are not listed, it is advisable to proceed to the next casino.
