Trip to Scandinavia 2013: Part I of Copenhagen, Denmark

After 8 long posts about Norway, finally it's time to blog about Denmark, another interesting country!

The flight from Bergen Norway to Copenhagen Denmark is about an hour plus.

By the way, I have yet to reply each and every single of the comments for the passed few posts, time is really not enough these days! But trust me, I did read all of them ok? ;)

View we saw from inside the coach

Temperature doesn't vary so much, but it's slightly warmer here in Denmark

We passed by the famous Tivoli Garden! Hmm we actually went inside, the place is so huge and beautiful! Shall blog about it soon!


 We visited one of the castle here, the Christianborg castle.
I don't know why but it's quite cold here!

Probably because there's a lake here?

The guard is very strict and fierce, don't play play!

Tour guide brought us inside the castle to introduce some history, and we have to leave our bags and cameras outside

This lady in red intended to take closer photo with the guard but kena warning! Pity....

Just a short tour at this castle. Good for me as I am not interested in castle visits, haha xD

Tourist buses here are also equipped with free wifi

Looking kinda fresh as we have had enough rest

Forgot what is this building... 

Passed by a series of unique buildings!

A trip to Copenhagen is not complete without visiting Carlsberg factory!!
Used to be a factory here but now it has turned into a museum

Quite a huge place

The statue of the founder of Carlsberg

One of the attraction is this bottle display room!

Thousands of Carlsberg bottles from around the world. All are very dusty, so can tell they are here for many many years already~

There's an area showing how the beer is made these days

And also an area showing us how the beer is made during the olden days

That's not a real person, haha xD

A small garden around the museum

There's a small horse farm here as well

Those horses are very beautiful to see, but the place is very smelly cause of their poo poo, haha xD

One of the storage method last time

A very cute Carlsberg van!

Each of us got 2 coupons to pick drinks that we want. Basically 2 kinds of Carlsberg beer and some soft drinks. Of course beer taste better and fresher there!

A trip to Copenhagen is also not complete without the visit to the Little Mermaid statue, based on the famous author Hans Christian Anderson.
Saw this van nearby the statue, but the lady boss is very rude, she told us no touching on the souvenirs if we don't intend to buy >.<

The statue is so much smaller than what I've expected! It's just the size of a human being

Nonetheless it's the Copenhagen's attraction, must come and take photos!

Nothing much to see nearby, just this statue. If you read the papers, you'd know that this little mermaid celebrated its 100th anniversary in August this year


We dropped by Gefionspringvandent too!

There's a story behind this fountain, if you're interested please Google for it ;)

This is another tourist attraction I'd say

 A nice church just beside the fountain

  4. Do you realise that many places & buildings in Europe look very greyish so your colourful clothes made them alive! LOL
    I am curious how their European castles really looked like inside as the layout and structures in olden days could be interesting to live there.


    Wow! I just googled that Christiansborg Castle and it was a palace in the ancient times! The interior is very huge and pretty indeed with bridges, chapels and Queen's parlours! I wonder why cameras are not allowed.

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…

To Penang again

Another Penang trip sponsored by my brother <3

The last staycation at Penang was during April (Click HERE to read).



Driving to Penang is easy for me, just about an hour, smooth drive along the highway and on the bridge, slightly jam from Gurney towards Batu Ferringhi though~ 

And here we are! This time we checked into Park Royal resort again, because we got a complimentary upgrade to suite rooms as promised by the manager 😁
The lounge area is now opened after refurnished, very big and comfortable place 
Waiting to check in, wefie first la! 😄
Welcome drinks

Check-in was fast, the boys can't wait to see the rooms!



The room is big and nice with all basic necessities, nothing much to complain la haha!


Complimentary snacks and nutmeg juice


It has a smaller toilet outside...


... and a bigger one with bathtub near the bed. Needless to say, my sons were the most excited ones when they see the bathtub! 😊



Without wasting times, we changed into our swimming attires and off to the…
