Enjoy a Snowy Holiday at Genting's Snow World!

Last August, hubby and I went to Europe. It was the peak of summer. I also wish to travel to Europe again during winter. I prefer to go Switzerland next time. I read that Christmas markets in Germany and Austria is in the top list during the holiday season. That will be exciting, too!

We all know how far and expensive it is to go all the way to our dream winter destination. We don't need to break the bank. We can enjoy a snowy holiday at Genting’s Snow World.
The new SnowWorld is a whole new enchanted attraction that houses fantasies and wonders on a fairyland high at the peak! Experience the new attractions as you walk into our new SnowWorld in First World Plaza. Featuring a winter downtown and World Heritage concept, the breathtaking view of the entire surrounding will be a great place for photo shooting.

Travel Tuesday: To Rome with Love

From the movie To Rome with Love

Rome is such a beautiful city. It will not be called 'Eternal City' for nothing. The scorching summer heat welcomed us last summer. Overall, the trip was so worth it.

Watching the movie To Rome with Love made me miss Rome. Been to some locations in the movie.

Hubby and me. This is Rome at night.

Scene from the movie, To Rome with Love
 Bella Fontana! (beautiful fountain). Rome's fountain of all fountains

 A traditional legend holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome. (Wikipedia)

Like everybody else, I threw a coin and wished to visit the city again. I would love to return to Rome. I love the food, walking at piazzas, see churches everywhere and try all flavors of gelato.

Scene from the movie, To Rome with Love
When you are in Rome and you have time to spare, take a stroll at the cobbled streets and see interesting things around.

Colorful fruit stand! :) 

This is street leading to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum 

The Pantheon

Travel Tuesday: 007 in Thailand

Read this article, 50 years of James Bond: a dream 007 travel itinerary, from Lonely Planet.

As ode to James Bond's 50 years in film, here are the photos taken during our trip in Phuket, Thailand in 2010. These were the locations for the 1974 film The Man with the Golden Gun.

 Here it is... James Bond Island. My hubby took and edited this photo.

And this is Phang-nga Bay.

Thursday Travel Trivia: The Alnwick Garden

The Alnwick Garden is perfectly situated in the heart of Northumberland - away from the hustle and bustle of city life. See their official website)

The centrepiece of The Alnwick Garden is the Grand Cascade, a magnificent tumbling mass of water, ending in an eruption of fountains sending 350 litres of water into the air every second. A computer system synchronises four sensational displays that offer not only a visual treat but more interactive enjoyment too for younger visitors who can play amongst the water jets. (from

The Garden is the Rose Garden, a mixture of pergola lined paths and walkways, covered in climbing and shrub roses mixed with glorious clematis and honeysuckle. This garden combines colour and fragrance to tempt the senses, with a collection of over 3000 roses.

Travel Tuesday: Venezia, Italia

The 'City of Canals' will always be romantic. Just watched lovers float passed gondolas.

Though I missed its beautiful site on a summer evening, I find this place very picturesque.

One fine day in August. It was scorching hot in Venice. A good excuse to buy gelato every few hours. ;)

These are the photos we took during our summer vacation.

One of the lovely sites

 Bell tower of St. Mark or Campanile di San Marco(left)and Doge's Palace or Palazzo Ducale (right)

Saint Mark's Basilica (Basilica di San Marco) - beautiful Byzantine architecture

 The Grand Canal - "one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city". Take a water taxi or gondola to explore Venice

And speaking of gondolas, you'll see them everywhere. Ask this gondolier and he will take you around. They will also sing for you for additional euros, of course.

I'm chasing and trying to feed the pigeons (which is a no-no) here at Piazza San Marco. ;)

I'm crossing my fingers to be part of this trip. I can feel winter for a day. Woohoo! Feeling happy like a kid, huh?! Of course, I'll be in winter wonderland, Genting Snow World. AWESOME!

Now, thinking of what to wear? I've read in Herworld that bright blue is 'IN'. And this is beautiful.
And these are a few winter look. And a scarf, which I like, is a plus. Credits to Patty Laurel's blog.

And here is my cold weather look when I was in north of England a month ago. It was a cold summer. Coming from the 30-degree weather, this coldness is not yet normal to me. haha! To be fair, this year they say, has been a cold, rainy summer.

Take note, this product has 12-in-1 benefits. O-ha!
1. conceals dullness
2. conceals pores
3. creates healthy skintones
4. evens skintones

6. UVB
7. moisturizes skin
8. makes skin smooth and translucent
9. livens uo skin
10. non-sticky
11. brightens skin

BB Cream Trivia:
- BB stands for blemish balm
- BB cream is a beauty product though some brands claim it's a skin care product
- BB cream is discovered in Germany, not in Korea which most of us think it is. It's Korea which introduced BB cream to other Asian countries

And the star of the workshop. Ta-da!

Please free to share what brand of BB Cream you are using and what you like about it. Have a beautiful day!

Sunday's Best: Hair Free Day

Glad that I made it to Pink Parlour's Hair Free Day yesterday, 15th April. S$8 for one waxing service is a VERY good deal. It's my first time at Pink Parlour. The place and service is good.

'Wait, there's more.' The goodies bags from Cosmopolitan Singapore and Pink Parlour are so cool. Happy me, hair-free me.

And oh, I love the staff's shirts saying, "I'm a Brazilian waxing survivor."
