Bangkok Trip

Hey everyone! It's been awhile.
Took me so long to draft out this post as it has been a very busy year for me!

Celebrated New Year's countdown in Bangkok with my friends !
It was my virgin trip to Bangkok (or Thailand) actually. Haha

Since it's New Year's Eve so I only worked for half a day, I went straight to the airport after work to walk around! :)

It was kind of a shopping trip rather than a New Year Celebration and I actually forgot about the new year part till I was told. Lol. Blur me~

We reach at night and rush back to the hotel to quickly wash up.
We stayed at Amanta Hotel and Residences. One part is used as a hotel and another part is for residents, so as the name says.. Lol.

It is pretty spacious, and has all the facilities such as washing machine, kitchen, etc. although we didn't get to use those.

Did I mention the bathroom is huge?!

Not to forget the bedroom.

As comfy as it looks. :)

We rushed off to celebrate the New Year at a restaurant in a hotel (can't remember the name)

No pictures, only a selfie~ Oops! Sorry~

Oh, and at wee hours we were watching people dancing.

Sorry if it spoiled your breakfast/lunch/dinner :X
That was.... errr.... is that a girl or a guy? There seems to be a lot of people very hyped up about them and keep stuffing notes into their dresses.

Started our second day at "After You" Cafe, located at J-Avenue.
Do check out that area as there are quite a few cafes out there!

The Menu.

These are what we ordered.

Original Mille Crepe

Matcha Latte

IMG_3411
Vanilla Latte

IMG_3413
French Toast with Ice-cream

IMG_3412
Banana Pancake.
I thought this was pancake served with banana but they actually made the pancakes using the bananas.

The food are really yummy and we couldn't finish it but the matcha latte is a little too sweet to my liking. The cafe is quite small but quite cosy and clean. Price wise is a little pricey for a cafe in Thailand so I might consider again if I would come. Maybe yes, but not so often.

Went walking around malls nearby our hotel and headed back to rest for awhile.

Prepared ourselves and went out for dinner.

Visited a temple after dinner. Seems like a popular one as there were quite many people.

Next stop, Lebua!
IMG_3427
Seems to be one of the popular attractions. A lot of Caucasian gathered to enjoy the view from the restaurant.
It was quite impressive actually.

Tried out many different kinds of stinky cheese!

Oh, in case you want to visit this place, there is a dress code for this restaurant so do take note!

IMG_3442
Day 3, time for shopping!
Went to Chatuchak and bought lots of clothes!

IMG_3449
Coconut Ice-Cream. Must try!!! Totally love it even though I don't really like to eat coconut.
This is really awesome.

IMG_3452
Garlic Bread, Condensed Milk Bread and Sugar Bread. Really yummy!!
Do try their orange juice too!!

Bought quite a few clothes back from Bangkok but I kind of regretted it.
The people in Thailand are more petite size as compared to Singapore so I couldn't fit in some of the clothes and the dresses are tad small so I had to give away some ):
Oh in case you're wondering, you can't try the sizes in the store and it will be quite troublesome to try to find a toilet so usually people would buy and go.

I would recommend you guys to shop at Platinum mall as the quality of the clothes are better than Chatuchak though you have to pay a little more but you pay for what you get!
It cost about 100-150 baht which is around SGD$4-6 which is really really cheap!
Not sure about the authenticity but it works fine for me.
 Can't remember if they have the scratch off authenticity code or not.

Would definitely go back to shop for more clothes since everything is so much cheaper there and you can get some really good clothes (good material and design!) at relatively cheaper prices!

However it seems to be quite unstable as I've heard a bomb set off at one of the malls in Bangkok.

Till then.

Leviva Luckystone


Have been looking around for bracelets recently and I was introduced to an online store called Leviva Luckystone

Leviva specialized in customized bracelets which are made of stone beads. They have a large variety of stones to choose from which ranges from different color to different quality of stones. 

I saw the pastel pink ones online and it's so pretty so I got one customized for myself. The results turned out to be so preeeeeeettyyy!!
Isn't it ? 


Here's a closeup picture.


Totally in love with the bracelet. Looks so pinky girly~ Weee~~

What is special about Leviva is that you can customize how you would like it to be and choose the quality of the stones.
You can also choose your pendants or even bring your own favourite charms to add along to your bracelet! They have quite a variety of pendants for you to choose from. 
Of course there are a few standard pieces and some of them are just so pretty!!

Here are some designs that I like
(Pictures gotten from their Facebook page)
Some of these pictures are actually from customers' customization.

This looks yummy! Nomnomnom... 

Oh wait, these bracelets are not just for ladies, there are designs of guys too! Guys can also customize your favorite pieces!



Did I mentioned that there are different meanings for each stones?

For my bracelet, they are rose quartz stones which means "unconventional love". It gives hearts to all kind of love (love for self, families, friends, relationships, etc). It helps balance emotions, lowering stress, bring peace and release all the negative emotions to allow the heart to heal.

Leviva is currently having a promotion for my readers! Yay! :)

Pretty hair for Chinese New Year!


It's the time of the year to specially pamper yourself for the upcoming Chinese New Year!

I was always going for the safe side, dyeing hair of different brown or ash tones but never really getting much changes. This time round I will be trying something different. Much bigger change!
Interested?

Continue reading to find our more!

But first, here's a before photo as usual~
It's important to make comparison! :P




Eww...ugly roots.


Started off with a little bleaching from mid hair length.

Only bleached slightly to minimize the damage to our hair.
Maybe you've guessed what I'll be doing? Hehe.

Next is... dyeing of course!
This time round I used Mucota Series Hair Color. It is a high-lift color that is better than normal hair dyes as more color gets on your hair.


Not to forget, treatment!
I totally fell in love with the Mucota ABC (3-step) Treatment. Have been raving since 2 years back because it is one of the best treatment that I have been doing and a few of my friends actually became regular customer at Headlines Hairdressing because of their Mucota Treatment and DYNA Treatment!

Now it's time for the results!
Some of you may have guessed it!
I'm getting a red/pinkish ombre hair color!
Although ombre hair is not something new, isn't it pretty?

It's so pretty that I can't stop admiring it.
❤ MAJOR LOVE!!!! 

Took quite a few pictures so do take some time to look at it!

Gave my hair some temporary soft curls
