Day 1 and 2: Barcelona, Spain

Okay i know i procrastinated this post. not that i don't want to blog about it but no time!! anyway, before i lost interest i better get it done. so here it is!!

We took 2310 flight on the 9th and reached Amsterdam airport at about 0600 (Spain's time). Recalling back i did nothing much on the plane for that 12 hours. can't really slept well and no nice movies to watch :( anyway, we transitted from Amsterdam to Barcelona in the same morning and reached Barcelona at about 9am.
nice views from above ^__^

camwhoring in the plane...

Day one

Like i mentioned in the previous post it was raining upon our arrival @__@ but lucky it wasn't heavy. we had 2 bus drivers with us throughout the whole trip and our driver was Frelentino. next we went for city tour and our tour leader for that day was Sandra. she brought us around the town area and some of the must-visit places in Barcelona.
there are a lot of nice and very artistic buildings around the towns...most of them are real fine piece of art (sorry arr damn lots of photos so i combined several into one)

view from inside the bus when it was raining




Olympic ring at Barcelona


us outside La Sagrada Familia.
this is a giant temple designed by the master architect Antonio Gaudi. It has been under construction since 1882 and still got another 30 - 80 years to go before it will be finished. The reason it needs so long for contruction is because it's depending on funding and donations. plus it's huge and has very complicated designs!



yay yay these kids were so happy to see us ;D

Next we walked around town and visited some old church.



street artists at La Rambla Street. they actually wore that piece of heavy costumes on them throughout the whole day and expecting you to give them some money... and their make up skill damn pro lah!

my initial plan was just to take a simple photo with him by standing beside. but later on he offered me to hold his arm and so, i did!! hahah this guy damn funny you know he even joked to call me at night when the bf is sleeping (shhh...) :p

one of the place you must visit if you are at Barcelona. MUST okay... this is the famous food market at La Rambla Street. there are a lot of stalls inside selling seafood, fruits, candies, chocolates, meats etc etc and all the stalls are damn clean and the arrangement is so nice don't you think?! so colourful how can i resist?


oh yummy yummy fruits... my favourite!! ;)

porks at food market. at first i thought their famous type of meat is steak or lamb but i was wrong. porks are actually their common meal.

all sorts of chocolates at a very reasonable price ^__*

and spanish are great dog lovers!! i saw a lot of spanish bringing their dogs for morning and evening walks. and their dogs are so cuTeeee and obedient. some even waited outside while their owners were shopping! omg omg....

after few hours of city tour we checked in to our hotel in the evening and the hotel we stayed is Princesa Sofia. whoa the hotel damn nice, 5 star baby... ;D
we were supposed to gather at the lobby at 6.45pm for dinner so i din't plan to nap. but due to extreme tiredness i felt asleep on the bed =_= but dear's sudden awaken woke me up as well and it was already 6.35pm omg!! we both rushed like hell to bath and changed, lucky we were only 5 minutes late and there were others who were even later than us pheww....
Dinner for the day was tapas (famous appetizers in Spanish cuisine) @ Marina Moncho near the Olympic port.
us at Marina Moncho restaurant with those yummy dishes...

sunset comes late in Spain. believe it or not it was already 9pm when i took this photo but the sky was still very bright @__@ sunrise was at about 6 in the morning during summer. to summarize, day times are longer than nights in Spain.


i was here!! 0_o

l-r: the bf, myself, Jess, Hou and Jackie

next we headed back to the hotel to have a good rest so to have greater energy for the activities next day!


Day Two
Buffet breakfast in the hotel at 8am. then we were driven to Costa Brava which often translated as 'wild coast'. it offers modern resorts on the shoreline, traditional Spanish villages, colourful annual fiestas and a variety of architecture and bars, cafes, museums and also art galleries. we also passed by the coastline of the Costa Brava along the Mediterranean Sea in Catalonia. in the hotel room before departure


beautiful panorama view besides the sea.... and it was so cold!!!




sandy beach
the one i love... ;)



with Jimmy, Lim and Mr Ng...



Ms Tong, a very nice lady from Summit Holidays

our next destination was La Roca Village. it's a street/place filled with several restaurants, cafes and factory outlets. i was told that some brands available are Timberland, Miss Sixty, Burberry, Loewe, Woman's Secret, Kipling, Versace etc etc.. knowing this i was damn excited already hehe... anyway we went for lunch first at a restaurant named La Fonda. then we were given few hours to shop around the place. My initial plan was to look for bags but towards the end of the day i couldn't find any because...most bags are too pricey!! especially after i converted back to RM. so in the end, both the bf and i bought only a few tees and bottoms :(


some of the food for our lunch

having our sangria (a mixture of red wine and soda with some slices of lemon)


me outside La Fonda restaurant


one of my favourite picture!!

Dinner that day was at a restaurant named China 1903. wah i tell you this trip is fulled with meals. believe it or not i gained 2kg after the trip :'( plus we had a lot of steaks, pork, fries etc etc (heavy food). not forgetting, wine and liquor.

random pictures of us

We went for porno show at the same night opps....well its something very common there so i think no need to feel shy lah... seriously it was my first time watching this kind of thing live. it's actually a small club with a spinning stage in the center. everyone were allowed to order a drink per pax. okay no further description already and of cause no pictures for this event :\ The show finished at about 12am and then we were driven back to the hotel. *tired*

Well that was how we spent the first 2 days in Barcelona. Valencia was the second city we visited which i will blog about it soon. (i hope)

Okay its getting late time to say good night!!

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)





By far…

Just a short note

Hello hello!
Was away for the past few days hence the silence here ;)
Went Bangkok with my bff and was so tired and exhausted! But enjoyed ourselves very much.. It's a pre birthday celebration trip for us as we are born in October...
Shall catch up with you guys soon!
p/s: SK and Wenn, I have received the gifts sent from you both, million thanks ya! ^^
