To Hatyai again

We were away to Hatyai during the last weekend. 
Hatyai is one of my favorite place to visit, it's a food and shopping paradise! Plus, it's not too far away from Taiping, no need to travel by plane, haha!

Decided to bring Aden along, this is consider his first trip oversea (or should I say overborder? LOL) ;)
Remember the passport photo I blogged HERE? That's for this trip.

Too bad, he was down with fever on Friday T_T It happened all of a sudden, with no flu/cough or whatsoever. I was in dilemma whether to bring him along or not, kept monitoring his temperature the whole night, couldn't sleep well and so is Aden, poor boy.

Anyway, we brought him along, still feeling unwell and feverish during the first day we at Hatyai but getting better during the next day~

 Due to the fever, he became more cranky and clingy to me, he wants only ME to carry T_T

 Despite all the crankiness and tiredness, I had no regrets bringing him along, I think he enjoyed himself too! Especially in the tuk tuk car~

 I did some shopping, in fact all of us did *happy*
But it rains EVERYDAY at Hatyai :( I guess not just Hatyai but everywhere else, including Taiping~

 We stayed at The Bed boutique hotel and it was quite nice! Room is big and clean~

 We stayed 2 nights so it wasn't so rush for us, still have time to take afternoon nap for the first 2 days ;)
Only thing is poor mummy couldn't sleep well cause these 2 bosses occupied the bed, hemp!

Christmas is coming, that means holidays! Here I wish my dear readers a Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
Nah, ice cream for you ^_^


  1. Hi Hayley, ha ha, love that pic of father and son sleeping. Same position too. I guess your boy even though not well must have enjoyed the trip.

    The last time I was in Hatyai was wayyyyy back 1980.
    Your boy has really grown too. Ok, time to give him a brother to fight and play, or baby sister to look after.
    Wishing you and family a happy Christmas, best regards.
    You stay beautiful and keep a song in your heart.

  2. wah.. so nice lah, you went to Haadyai again!! i remember you went to Haadyai this year with your ex-colleagues and it was just like yesterday.. and now you were there again for the second time!! i also cannot remember when was my last time to Haadyai already, but i am sure it was more than a decade ago, haha!!

    hehehe, actually when you brought Aden to go and get his passport done, i also knew you are going to bring him to somewhere.. what "overborder"?? haha, still considered overseas lah, that's The Gulf of Thailand there right?? hehehe.. and good that you start bringing Aden to travel so that he can get used to it..

    aiyoh, surely no fun is travelling when one is sick huh?? but Aden just looked okay aje leh, maybe he has got mommy to manja so didn't thrown tantrum but guai guai enjoying his ride on the tuk-tuk..

    the hotel is nice leh!! very comfortable and tidy and clean, 光光猛猛, 整整齊齊, 乾乾淨淨 like that, i like lor.. and somemore still able to take afternoon nap for two days, haha!! yalah, actually nothing much intensive to do in Haadyai also besides eating and shopping and massage only, so it's more like an unwinding trip to get more rest i supposed.. but pity you, didn't have much sleep during the trip huh?? never mind lah, back to Taiping, your turn to sleep while your hubby takes care of Aden, hahaha!!

    1. Haha good memory wo SK! Yep, I went with Yannie and Ah Hua they all in April this year.

      Yes that passport photo is actually an obvious hint la! ;))

      True, don't say kids, even if we fall sick during traveling also very suffering lo...

      Hotel room is really good, better than what I expected, too bad I don't have much time and mood to take photos of every corners... :p

  3. yeah, Christmas is coming real soon and Santa Claus is already in town!! wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

    where did you have that ice-cream in Swensen's?? Haadyai also?? i like that three pieces of chocolates on top, especially the Santa design, so cute.. too cute to eat also!! :p

    1. Yes SK, go Thailand must eat their Swensen, so many varieties and so cheap!

  14. Hahha ....guess you guys have a good time and hope Aden recovered fully. Merry Xmas to you and family.

  15. Glad you had a nice holiday with your boys :) Merry Christmas to you and your family, Hayley!

  16. Nice! That sounds like a very fun vacation with your family. :)

    I like the shot of you all in the tuk tuk - I was quite surprised to see that the tuk tuk in Hat Yai are more like mini trucks (a cross between the ones in Bangkok and the jeepneys in Manila).

    Glad you got your shopping done! Merry Christmas to you and your family Hayley!

    1. Their tuk tuk is really amazing, small but powerful ;)

    2. Yeah! It's so powerful that it can carry a lorry at the back which can seat 6-8 while the Bangkok ones can only seat 2-3 max.

      I love the tuk tuk in Hat Yai. I thought they'll only go when they're full but my dear told me they'll go as soon as they have people.

  17. Hatyai again!! hahaha~
    seems like you and your family have a wonderful trip! that's good :D

  18. U.. 1 carry 3 XD (1 big 2 small), but u still looked energetic! good~ Merry Xmas.

    1. 'Look' energetic, but deep down I was exhausted!!

  19. Merry Xmas!你看起来还是很瘦哦!

  20. This sounds like a very relaxing trip for you and your family. I love going to Hatyai too. Only the waiting at the custom and the hot weather put me off.

  21. I want to go to Hatyai too one day. ^^

    Poor Aden. At least he got to enjoy the holiday.

    Merry Christmas to you and family.

  22. It sounds like you and your family enjoyed the time in Hatyai, Hayley. ^^ It's the monsoon season; it even rains daily in KL too. =/

    Merry Christmas!! =D

  23. Enjoying a vacation with the family is always a priceless memory. :)

  24. Merry Xmas & Happy New Year!!

  25. 圣诞快乐!!!那里也很靠近你,可以一直去找吃又好买

  26. i like short trips! and of course a 'lazy trip' as i dun have to rush around goin places...Yeapzz lazying in the hotel and having naps on the comfy hotel bed is part of the fun.

  27. I love short getaway, definitely can recharge our "battery"!

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…
