Hello Cats! Hello Alpacas!

And so, other than lavish temples, cheap massages, good food and fancy hotels, Bangkok has more to offer! A and I checked out three theme cafes in Bangkok and I’m here to share more about what we think of them. We have heard (or seen) many cat cafes because they are getting so popular these days. But this one that we visited is one of the prettiest I’ve seen so far! Other than the cafe section, they also have a retail section, as well as a grooming arm! The cats here are really pretty! And we saw 3 (or was it 4) Maine Coons, and A went crazy because she really likes her cats BIG! Hahahahaha. But to be frank, the Maine Coons looked really majestic! The pictures you see above is the usual sight during most of the time. We were also lucky enough to witness how feeding time was like at the cafe! The lady with the cat food walked into the room with a tray with all the cat food and went …

Hotel Muse

Last weekend was a special one for me, being able to spend A’s birthday privately with her in Bangkok. I think people might think we are mad at the rate we’re visiting Bangkok. Heh! We just love this place too much! During this visit, we also checked out Le Cabinet de Curiosites of Thomas Erber, an internationally acclaimed annual exhibition, exploring both Thai and international arts. It was a feast for the eyes! This is the fifth year Le Cabinet de Curiosite was held and this time round, it was hosted by Siwilai Concept Store and Central Embassy, a brand new luxury mall in the heart of Bangkok. In this event, we saw more than 70 pieces consisting of a Lotus Arts de Vive crocodile sculpture, pieces by Thai silk company Jim Thompson, a P-Tendercool haute manufactured table, the lightest jacket ever made by Officine Generale, and an exclusive urban city bag by Maison Takuya. It’s just way too cool! Central Embassy was also like an art piece on its own – look at those …

Tokyo

Tokyo came and left in the blink of an eye. As much as the world is getting smaller every day with this crazy technology boom, it is still taking me so long to fly around the globe. Hasn’t anyone came up with a teleporting machine yet?

You’ve been Phuket-ed!

All thanks to The Glamourous Factory, A and I were all prepped up after weeks of hard work! This cosy little space tucked away in a small corner is going to be your best friend, especially if you are one of those who works in the CBD area. We visited The Glamourous Factory last week and each enjoyed a pampering facial! I also tried eyelash extension for the first time in my life (it really isn’t as uncomfortable as I’ve been told!) The Glamourous Factory not only do facial treatments but also a whole array of other services like nails, waxing, ear candling, IPL, and many more! It’s just a stone’s throw away from my favourite Amoy Street Food Centre and it’s so convenient to just pop by to get a treatment the next time I’m in the CBD area! Yay! 😀 They are currently having an Opening Special which will end on 30th November 2012 and Christmas promotions are also on. I always liked how I can find treasures like that. 🙂 Don’t forget …

Bintan Getaway!

Courtesy of Journeyful and Bintan Lagoon Resort, A and I were whisked away to Bintan for the weekend! I always loved weekend getaways and other than local hotel staycations, short trips to nearby isles is also one of my faves. A and I joined other bloggers and media representatives to the media launch at Bintan Lagoon Resort! The walkway to the resort was littered with the resort staff and it was really very welcoming! They all had different uniforms so I reckon they all played different roles in the resort. Very cute! I also saw other bloggers like Silver, Nadnut, Brad, Zoe, Dawn and many more. 🙂 We were all given a goodie bag with LOTS of junk food and a welcome drink at the lobby of the resort too! We put up at one of the Club Suites and it was really much bigger, cleaner and prettier than what I remembered. (I stayed at this same resort some 5 years ago) There is also a personalized welcome message in our room. Nice touch! There …

Bangkok III

I am back with another entry about my Bangkok trip! This is the third and last post about this recent trip though, and it feels as if I am on the trip and it is ending all over again. Boo. I miss the Land of Smiles already! For this last entry, I want to share one of my favourite night markets in Bangkok! But before that, here are some pictures taken during our anniversary dinner there. It’s our first year together and we decided to just spend it like any other day. We had dinner at the 9th Cafe in Siam Paragon. It’s just a simple looking cafe but the food was pretty good! (The food is nice everywhere in Bangkok lah!) This is my lady’s ‘happy smile’. The food! A likes her western food and my heart has long been stolen by Thai cuisine. After dinner, we went down to our favourite dessert haunt Vanilla Brassiere and bought a tiny Tiramisu cake before we head back to the hotel. A says this cake is …
