Sand in Your Buns

It has been a great week so far! We brought A’s 2 huskies out to Tanjong Beach Club again with A’s siblings. Considering that it’s the monsoon season now, we were really lucky that it didn’t rain! Poor us had to squeeze at the back of a van though. Like animal and human trafficking. Hahahaha. The girls are always happy when we are out on excursions! Ulva even made a new friend! πŸ˜€ I love the calamari at Tanjong Beach Club! Super yummy! It’s such a lovely place but it’s really a shame that their service sucks so bad. All the many staff at the club were all huddles up behind the counter and there is no one around to pass us menu, take our orders or see if we are okay. It was drizzling when we were there and when the rain stopped, we asked if we could use the day beds on the beach. One of the servers told me they closed up the beds because it was drizzling (they call it some …

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 …

New Smiles

I am excited about this entry because I get to introduce a place I went to get the perfect smile! I have always been not very confident with my teeth, especially the upper row because I have a gap between my two front teeth. The ends of the two front teeth are jagged, and my teeth are really small. I’m too used to chewing food on the right side of my mouth, so the right incisor and canine teeth are worn too. My horrible teeth-grinding habit (bruxism) when I sleep is not helpful towards the worn teeth too. As a result, the loss in enamel has caused my teeth to be sensitive as well. Here are a few photos of my teeth to give you a better picture. Sorry for the weird faces in the photos. Heh! So during my short stay in Bangkok, A and I watched some videos from the show “Style By Jury”. Those people did WONDERS with veneers, crowns and whitening work and the results were absolutely amazing! I really love …

Bangkok II

I’m back with more details about my Bangkok trip and more hangouts in the Land of Smiles to recommend! A and I checked in to our second hotel for this trip! I first read about MADUZI Hotel on the internet, and I was blown away by the decor in this hotel, especially their unique bath tubs in all of their rooms! This hotel also views the privacy of their hotel guests importantly. There is no typical check-in counter in this hotel, all paper work are done in your rooms. And the moment you enter the hotel, it just feels like home! There is no crowd around any counters, you don’t see a lot of guests walking around too because there is only slightly more than 40 rooms in there. The hotel do not take guest reservations over the counter, so only prior reservations are accepted. The gates to the hotel are almost always closed too, so you don’t get random strangers streaming in and out. I like it! We were allocated a room on the …

Bangkok I

I AM FINALLY BACK! The recent Bangkok trip has been great. It was supposed to be a 7 day trip, but due to some last minute decisions, we extended our trip and it became a 11 days one. It was my first time staying in Bangkok for so many days. And as to why I was there for such a long time, I shall reveal it in my next post! πŸ™‚ For now, I just wanna share some of the places I visited in Bangkok and also a nice hotels I stayed in when I was there. If you’re reading this now and will be travelling to Bangkok soon, hope it would be of some help in your itinerary planning too! We tried out two hotels in this trip and both were absolutely fantastic – different and unique in their own ways. The first boutique hotel we visited was TENFACE Hotel at Phloen Chit area. This cosy little hotel has about slightly under 90 rooms so it is a great choice for us because we …
