Trip to Scandinavia 2013: Hotels

We were in Norway for a total of 6 nights and we had stayed at 4 different hotels. Even though it can be fun to stay at different hotels to experience the 'feel' but it can be quite tiring as we need to unpack and pack luggage the next morning.

Anyway, just to share the views of the hotels in Norway and Denmark.

1. Radisson Blu Plaza, Oslo
This is the hotel in Oslo City so it has better toiletries and slightly spacious compared to the rest. Wifi is free for hotel guests and is accessible from rooms as well.
There're a few small markets and malls and pubs around this hotel.

2. Union hotel, Geiranger 
This is at countryside so only basic toiletries are provided, rooms are slightly smaller. Wifi is available but connection wasn't too strong.

The hotel owner loves to collect antique cars and has a few showrooms at the basement, open for public

3. Quality Hotel, Sogndal
Also at countryside but room is better than what I've expected, looks more contemporary too. Wifi is available. And there's a small balcony which we din't had the chance to use at all.

4. Radisson Blu Royal, Bergen
Yep, another Radisson Blu ;) I think the company is quite well known here in Northern Europe. Since this is at the second largest city of Norway, facilities are satisfactory. It's just opposite the Bergen fish market, and is just next to the Hanseatic buildings. Very good location.
The hotel practises space saving concept, the make up and luggage table are foldable, and no wardrobe, just hang the clothes by the wall. A very good concept I'd say.

5. Radisson Blu Scandinavia, Copenhagen
Was in Denmark for only 2 nights, so stayed at the same hotel. Also another Radisson Blu, it's surrounded by a small lake, and has a casino just beside it. Room is spacious and clean. By far the best hotel throughout the trip.

In general, hotel rooms are relatively small and pricier in Northern Europe, if you were to compare to other European countries like Paris. Probably because it's not so famous among tourist, and also the high living standard, as well as the limitation of lands.

But I guess everyone is quite satisfied with what the tour arranged. And I personally am not so fussy when it comes to staying at hotel, as long as it's clean and odor-free, the rest would just be small matter.

Relevant travelogue: 


  1. Personally like this post so much!!! =]

  2. wow, it must be very rush for you to stay for a short period of time in Europe and visit many places and stayed in different hotels.

  3. 我觉得欧洲的住宿价钱高的问题,所以这些都算住得很好很好了!!!
    要住得比较好就可能不在城市里, 住在郊外就住得更好。

    1. 对阿,我也这么认为。。。

  4. 卫生清洁真的很重要!不卫生再高级也住不下去,对不对?

    1. 对!最重要清洁!

  5. The hotels and rooms are very nice. Yeap, very tiring moving from one hotel to another

  6. yea, I experienced that too..left footprints in so many hotels worldwide.
    sorry, my bloglist was not updated.

    1. Oh really? No wonder so less comments here!

  7. You take good pics of hotel rooms! I am normally stuck at the same old Yochana sitting on the bed angle:P Will pick your pointers and angles!!!

    1. Haha, thanks! Hope you'll find some new ideas now!

  8. It seems that every hotel you check in give you a pleasant stay.

  9. I find it very tiring to move from hotel to hotel...

  10. 可以尝试不同酒店很好,可是想到要unpack东西,很累呢,过后又要收拾回去。

  11. You stayed in all good hotels. This Raddison Blu hotel chain is very good class and not cheap lah. I normally will not look for cheap hotels in overseas again after several bad experiences.

    1. Yes, it's quite famous there in Northern Europe.

  12. 只要是清潔就ok,不過這裡住的房型還挺大的。


    1. 在郊外的较小,城市的还蛮大。

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
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~


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…
