Changkat Jering and Terong

...is where we visited during the weekend.
Changkat Jering is a small malay town situated in Perak. it connects Taiping to the North-South Expressway via the southern exit. the reason we went there is to visit the hot spring bath, aka Kolam Air Panas in Malay.
this place is about 5-10 mins drive from Changkat Jering toll.

the entrance

the fees

we booked a small private hot pool which cost only RM30 and occupied it for about 2 hours. i could feel the hot water when i first put in my feet, but if you can bear with it, you'll get used to the temperature after few mins


since there were like 11 of us, so its more worth to book the pool. there're also public pools where you share with other people and the price will be cheaper. also, a single white bucket if you want to bath only your legs. there're also private individual rooms for hot spring bath


our feets!

thank God the weather wasnt so hot. anyhow, i sweat alot due to the hot air coming out from the pool


some of the benefits of hot spring bath are:-
1. Hot air that warmed your whole body is capable to dilute your blood to become less thick, making it moves much smoother in your body.
2. It relaxes your muscles, veins, and proficient at countering body pain. If you have certain problematic areas, you can concentrate more on that particular organ, like your feet or back.
3. Skin pores all over the body too are forced to open up and this way, it is much easier for your body to discharge unwanted toxin and waste from the body. Your body will definitely feel much better and fresh after the process, especially after a week of hard work. It is one of the many great remedies of fatigue and stress.

the lady who looks after the place is a friendly malay aunty. she told us to come again especially at night, as it will be less hot and more fun! anyway, we should not stay in the hot bath for too long. so we left the place and headed to our next destination.

leaving the place, we drove another 4km further to Terong, Crystal's father who were there told us that there's a beautiful waterfall at Terong. since it was still early so we decided to take a look.

unfortunately, uncle couldnt locate the exact place so end up, we stopped by a shallow area.

  4. I never knew we have a kolam air panas so near our house. Eh, is the hot spring some sort like those in Japan one?

    The only waterfall I visited 15 years ago is located in Taman Suria, dunno-what-name pool. Kinda dirty, especially after some families have their picnic there.

  5. Yan, i'm not sure whether children can tahan the temperature or not.. but if they can then it'll be a fun experience!

    Yvonne, i dint know that too, it's recommended by my friend actually.
    erm, Japan one is much more nicer and bigger, but this one is ok also, considering its reasonable price.
    i knew that waterfall too!

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…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
