Hatyai trip

Note: Thank you everyone for the lovely birthday wishes!! (sms-es, FB/friendster's testimonials, msn s etc etc) also presents and gifts from all of you! you guys really made my day =))

Okay as promised, Hatyai trip!

Day One
woke up at 4.30am on Weds, then fetched the rest and to the destination we went! i slept only for 4 hours to be exact, so i was kinda tired and sleepy in the car but there was no wayy i could sleep.. too excited already and the rest were busy chit chatting :S
since it was Raya holiday, hence the long stretch of cars *sweat* we were stucked in jam for about 1 hour before we reached the border.




crowd queueing at the custom



in the very cozy van
anyway we reached safely at the custom at about 9smth and the driver fetched us to Golden Crown hotel. after checked in and all, we started our journey to walk around the town. we were starving so we headed for our brunch which was bak kut teh. yummy~
next, walked around the town and bought nothing much. so we decided to try their McD =) they have the special shrimp burger and pork burger which we can't find in Msia. the pork burger tasted so so to me but the shrimp burger was super damn yummy!! i wonder why Msia's McD don't sell it =( and i don't know why everything we ate throughout the trip tasted very special and nice. even the McD chili sauce is different, so as the soft drink.

we found this interesting pizza hut advertisement..



this is my favourite pict.. haha don't you think we were so qualified for being nerds?! ;p


after the meal, we went for a massage (which is a must-do at Hatyai). it was only 200TB and it took us about 1 hour 45 mins. it was a very relaxing massage i swear i'm gonna visit it again!


the famous Thai coconut
as we had already bought 6 tickets for the akua show which was scheduled at 7.30pm, so we headed back to the hotel for a rest first. the van driver took us to the Hansa plaza on time. but we had an unhappy experience here. the ticket we bought was actually inclusive of seafood dinner, it was supposed to serve at 6.30pm(which means before the show). but due to the long queue and the crowd, our dinner was served at 7.15pm. which means we only had 15 mins to gulp all the dishes.. we saw other who came later than us but their dinner was being served first. and when we asked the waiter/captain about this, all they said was they don't know or shaked their head :S but anyway, we had our dinner quickly and proceed to first floor to look for our seats. were kinda enjoyed the show.
it ended at about 9pm so we took the opportunity to visit the night market. loads of people that night and loads of great and tempting food available ;D i tried their bbq cuttlefish, bird nest and 'pak koh' dessert, mangoes etc etc..


us while waiting for the show to start
it was a tiring but fun day there. we went to bed early that night as everyone were kinda tired.

Day Two
alarm was set to 6.30am (Hatyai's timezone) to wake us up. next we walked to the nearby kopitiam to have our breakfast. then we took the famous tut tut car to go to the big market. and this was the time i spent quite alot to fulfil my satisfaction haha. we spent around 3 hours of shopping there.. Angeline and Macy were the greatest shopping queen as they spent ALL of their money there! *claps admires wtf*
then we took another tut tut car to go back to the hotel to start packing. we checked out at around 12pm and went to have another McD meal ;) the van driver fetched us to the custom at about 2pm. and from here, we were stucked in jam again :S it took us about 5 hours to reach home..

that's all about my trip to Hatyai. it was a short one but we had a blast time.. gals finally we made it a reality yahooo!!!
anyway despite the fun parts, i realise we missed something..
1. we missed tasting the Swensen ice cream T______T *knock head*
2. we missed visiting the temples due to time constraint
and me, in particular, missed planning for souvenirs properly (cause i got not enough souvenirs to give to my friends and colleagues, woowoo...)
but nevermind, lessons learnt. i'm sure the next trip will be more fun and well-prepared! =)

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! ^^
