It’s December again! Besides christmas and new year, it is also everyone’s Travel Season! We have been getting emails asking us what are some of the things that you should bring on board the plane, so here are some of the things that we bring around.

  • Makeup: This may seen odd to some of you. But I always bring a little makeup on board the plane. Of course, it is usually easier that you check into your hotel first before you prepare to go out, but sometimes my flight is so early that there would be hours before I can check in. What I usually do in that case is to put on my face on the plane, and leave my luggage at the hotel and head out from there.My makeup essentials are:
    1. Moisturiser. Recycled air in the cabin can be really damaging for your skin, so facial moisturiser is a must!
    2. Foundation. I mix in a little foundation with my moisturiser.
    3. Concealer.
    4. Loose Powder.
    5. Blush. It adds a healthy glow to your face!
    6. Chapstick. My lips get so dry that they crack and bleed, so chapstick is necessary.
    7. Eyebrow pencil. I have very light eyebrows naturally, so I need to fill them in a little.
    8. Eyeliner.
    9. Mascara.
  • Sunglasses: I don’t know about you, but I always look haggard after a long flight. Sunglasses are your best friend. It’s also handy if you are unfortunate enough to sit next to someone who refuses to lower the shades when the sun is shining in at full blast.
  • Water Tumbler: People often forget about this, but this is seriously one of the most important things which I always carry. Keep yourself hydrated at all times by bringing a tumbler. You wouldn’t be able to fill it up before you board because of liquid limitations, but you can always approach a staff and ask them to fill it up for you once you board. It is much better than having to ask for a flimsy small cup every time, which may tip over and spill at the slightest turbulence. I’m using a Christmassy tumbler from Starbucks!
  • Laptop, cellphone and iPad. It’s a bad idea to put your laptop and other electronic gadgets in your check-in luggage. It gets thrown around, and gets lost ever so often. Make sure your laptop is safe by bringing it on board with you. Remember to pack your charger together with it as well, as there is always a chance of your luggage getting lost in transit.
  • Hair serum. My hair is extremely dry, so I carry some hair serum with me to tame the frizz.
  • A scarf or a jacket. Sometimes, it gets rather chilly in the plane. I find it wise to carry around a light jacket, or a coat if you are travelling to cold countries.
  • Wallet: Should be self explanatory.
  • Pen: For filling out immigration forms.
  • Camera: Keep it in an easily accessible place so you can take it out easily.
  • Skincare products. Moisturiser, Facial wash, serum, eye cream.. Whatever you use on a daily basis
  • Contact lens case and solution. And in the same vein, also spectacles.
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste. Dental hygiene is always important.
  • Headphones: The headsets provided on board the plane usually sucks.
  • Body lotion: But remember to keep it under the limit!

And of course, don’t forget your passport and important documents! Happy travelling this holiday season!
