Trip to Scandinavia 2013: Mount Floyen, Bergen Norway

First of all, I want to say a BIG thank you for those who showed continuous supports to my posts! Give me some times to reply to each and every of your comments k? 

By the way, some of you request for food pictures, please bear with me, I will blog about them in a single post, soon!

Leaving those countrysides, we traveled to second largest city of Norway, which is Bergen (pronunciation similar to 'burger' xD) during the 5th day, and stayed 2 nights there before leaving to Denmark.

Very sunny day, eyes can hardly open

The hotel we stayed is located strategically nearby the fish market and also Bryggen

There're a few souvenir stalls nearby....

Also a plaza with some small malls, cafes, boutiques, bars and even restaurants

Having 'afternoon tea' nearby the hotel

Cheers darling~
Behind us is Bryggen, one of the attraction in Bergen. 

Come take a closer look. Bryggen is a series of Hanseatic Commercial buildings lining in the eastern side of the fjord coming into Bergen

They are in the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, impressive huh? Notice the buildings are all made of woods? And also slight slanting? Well that's the special thing about them.

Days are longer during summer ( thanks SK for the correction), basically sun rises at 6am, and sets at 9pm!

Bryggen at night, very nice and romantic la!

There're other buildings and a sea just opposite the hotel

I simply love these buildings! Basically Bryggen houses souvenir and gift shops now, with some pubs as well

If I remember correctly, it was slightly warmer here compared to those countryside

Standing in between the buildings

Perak branch manager of York, we actually exchanged our sunglasses here, haha xD

Bergen is always a wet city as it's near to the sea, so we bring our umbrellas all the time

On the first morning here we took a cable car to reach the top of Mount Floyen

See already drizzling when we were there.... Luckily not for long

Here we get to see a better view of Bergen just underneath us

The mount is about 320m above sea level

Getting colder cause it was drizzling

We had no idea what is that thing behind us, just pose for fun, haha xD 

Ending this post with a super fat cat we found in the hotel, so cute!

    2. and nice, your hotel is just nearby.. so basically you can go there anytime and then enjoy the view of Bryggen at different hours of the day.. and hey, there is also a fish market!! did you go to the fish market?? Norway sure got lots of fresh sea produce..

      Delete
    3. "days are longer during winter"??? i thought it's the other way round?? days are longer during summer, shorter during winter.. and the time you went there should be summer in the northern hemisphere right?? and being close to the arctic i guess it's even more extreme in Norway huh?? :)

    4. Bergen is really a nice place, did you have burger there?? hahaha.. and the view from Mount Floyen is equally captivating, but too bad it was drizzling and things get a little more inconvenient?? but view is surely good, a different taste of experience lah :)

  6. 五颜六色的建筑物真的好漂亮。
    而且不管怎么拍照都觉得很好看,是因为国外的月亮比较圆的关系?

  15. Wow, look at the clear blue skies and ocean! It's beautiful!!!

    Don't worry much, Hayley. We understand that you're currently busy. In fact, I must apologize for not returning sooner.... the easiest way to explain it is that I've been pulled in different directions by different humans.

  16. This post full of nice unique building, the Hanseatic Comm Bldg really standing elegantly.

  17. I agree with you, Bryggen is romantic at night, so nice!!!!!

  19. somehow their local "afternoon tea" is beer . . . or brew . . . hahaha! Brewfest month is here! Drinking some? :P cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Waaah! I just realised you blogged so fast!!! Couldn't believe it! Salutes!

    I love those beautiful houses very much as their wooden structures and myriad of colours made them look so contemporary and unique. Cantik lah and just looking at them can make anyone happy!! No wonder they got listed under the UNESCO.

  21. Wah! The sun shades suit both of you after swapping!! Macam actor and actress dei. I think their sun is more glaring & hotter than ours sometimes due to the altitude. Most people had to wear dark sunglasses when passing the snow as the 'white' reflections could blind our visions.

  22. The pussy cat is so huge and friendly to let anyone carry. I noticed all Western cats are huge and heavy/ The cats in China looked like under nourished! Muahahaha

  23. The country looks great and scenic! Wish I can visit there one day! :)

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! ^^
