Eat Pray Bangkok Trip | June '13

Went onto an extremely spontaneous 3 days 2 nights Bangkok trip in June right after my internship. My little short retreat getaway for eat and pray! Tagged along Sister Joyce and Eugenia, not forgetting Jonathan and Clement all the way from Singapore.

Not to mention about the food poisoning part, indirectly ruined the mood for half of my trip. Oh well, forget about those shits happened, let's focus on the bright side of the trip.

Took the earliest flight of the day to save more time for our trip. Eugenia with her hangover face and my 3 hours slept face! Looking good with our barefaced! *Think face* WTF




We came earlier while waiting for the rest to arrive, so we checked into our hotel - Centara Watergate Pavilion Hotel. Reason why i picked this newly hotel because of the location situated around Pratunam city area. The best part of all it is situated just a street next to the renowned Platinum Fashion Mall. Reasonable price around 200+ per night.



Set in the renowned Pratunam area, the brand new Centara Watergate Pavillion Hotel Bangkok offers a new take on the City of Angels. Seamlessly connected to Watergate Pavillion shopping and leisure complex, the hotel offers 281 rooms and suites designed in a light, modern, and inviting décor with all amenities you require at your fingertips to ensure a comfortable stay. This perfect location in the heart of Bangkok is where modern and dynamic lifestyle blend together with historical Bangkok and where luxury shopping and everyday fashion meet.

I called this 'Vector's Bubble Chair' from Despicable Me 1. 

Simple stylish room, perfect stay indeed!

Penang Afternoon Tea | Living Room, Macalister Mansion

Was back in Penang for Election months ago. Parents finally gave the green light for everyone to go out, thanks to election! Was kinda disappointed about the final result, luckily Penang still fell back to the right hand at DAP! How ironic that young adult like us were hardly anticipated towards politics, oh well maybe compare to the previous election. So we went out for an afternoon tea session just to discuss about this very matter. Haha.

Pay Macalister Mansion a visit after a year since my previous visit at Dining Room with my Wingeez Darlings (here) last year. Always wanted to revisit this place as it's a place that nicely designed with all the pastel interior, super me likey! <3 Simply loving the concept of Macalister Mansion that each space within its food & beverage outlets together with the hotel is branded as distinct rooms found in a mansion: Dining Room, The Den, Living Room, The Cellar, The Lawn and 8 Rooms.

People often think that Winter usually gets very cold and not reachable to sunlight as compare to summer. But it's wrong, UV ray and sunlight still very strong during Winter. Thanks to Aiberia that i brought over from Malaysia, i found my savior here. 

These series of Aiberia product i chose is Job's Tear of the North (之薏仁) Living Smooth & Deeply White, a whitening series. It contains of three major ingredients which are Sodium Hyaluronate (玻尿酸), Tranexamic Acid (博明酸), and Job's Tear of the North (北之薏仁). Combination of three main ingredients create the effects of whitening and hydrating at the same time. If you ever afraid of trying new skin care just like me?! Don't worry, Aiberia is suitable for all skin types especially sensitive skin.

Next, will be toner after you cleanse your face. Toner selling at RM60Poured few drops of toner into your clean hand and pat it over your face.

21st Birthday Dinner #2 | Oink Oink Dins, Elcerdo

Second birthday post.. err after 4 months? Don't care 21st is the greatest! I will post whenever i want too! Haha.

My classmates from Raffles were so sweet to bring me out for a belated birthday dinner on my birthday weekend. We planned to go to Elcerdo in Changkat. Elcerdo is a Spanish restaurant along Changkat with their specializes in home-cooked pork flavors. Mmmm Pork has always been my favorite choice of meat since i couldn't the best meat after beef. Even the restaurant name 'El Cerdo' is name after 'the pig'. in Spanish. Definitely a mouth wash of all the piggy dish.

New faces for my blog now feat. Michele, Lyn, Sofia, Onz, Ken, Terry & Carlson. They are all my best Raffles mates. So sad that now we have to leave each other for our own path.


Pig Out           



Spanish Ham Platter 




Pork Sausages & mash


Pork Ribs


Well, highlight of the night began with the signature dish - suckling piglet. There was these Spanish tradition in El Cerdo following by this particular dish before you eat on the suckling piglet. It seems like a little ceremony to chop the delicious piggy.

First you have to knock hard on the wooden board for 3 times before cutting it with the plate. Follow by cutting its head, body and tail as it means after chopping 3 times. So as for birthday girl, after i cut on the piglet with a plate then i got to pray for my wish and break it after in a small tub. Just when i pray for my wishes, he asked if i would go for money or love. And guess what? I chose Money over love. My classmates thought i would have go for love instead, but oh well i have got so much love from people around me. Money is what i see the most now, money money come to mama! Hahahaha

Explained by the friendly waiter


Me and Michie sharing for the cut for my little piglet


Break a plate, pray for MONEY MONEY MONEY! 


I would say a very well marinated delicious crispy skin of the suckling piglet, followed by a thin layer of fat and some meat as well. Mmmmm Best! 


Last before we called it a day, they got me my cake specially in PINK! surrounded by few shots and a little piggy as a gift from El Cerdo. My classmates know i have a thing on noming pork, so here's my piggy birthday! How sweet! Hahahaha!



Make a wish! yes for Money again! Kidding! Pray for a better year 2013!
