I've always wanted to go to Bali. So when AirAsia invited me to a media fam trip to Bali, I was beyond excited. Actually even before I got the invitation, I was already planning to go to Bali haha so the invitation came just in time for me!! 

Many of you might be wondering: 
Is it safe to travel to Bali now after the Mount Agung eruption? 

After getting reaffirmation from the Indonesia Tourism Board and my personal experience, we can confidently tell you that YES, IT IS SAFE to travel to Bali now! I even visited a temple overlooking the view of Mount Agung, which I will share below! 

1st March

In-flight meal - Chicken Satay!! (Tastes pretty good actually heh)
Our stay for 2 nights at Swiss Belinn Legian

We departed to Bali from KL at 4pm and by the time we reached Bali airport, it was already late and the sky has already turned dark. Hence, we didn't get to do much today except having a late dinner at our hotel - Swiss Belinn Legian (which we stayed for 2 nights). 

2nd March
Today is our first official day in Bali! We had to wake up at 5am to get ready, and gathered at 6am to depart to our first destination. Despite having to wake up at such an ungodly hour, I felt super excited to explore Bali. It's my first time in Bali and it remained on my bucket list for the longest time! 

Pura Lempuyang
We hopped on our bus, and made our way to Pura Lempuyang (which was 2 hours away from our hotel omg). The ride was honestly pretty tiring but as soon as we reached the destination, we were all pumped up to visit one of the oldest temples in Bali and it offers a majestic view of the Mount Agung (depends on the weather condition as well). 

As Lempuyang Temple is a very sacred place, visitors are required to dress up appropriately upon entering. NO shorts, singlets, spaghetti-strapped tops are allowed. However, scarves were provided to me so that I can cover my shoulders. 

This place is just breathtaking.

After visiting the temple, we visited Tirta Gangga which is also known as the water palace garden. This place is just beyond beautiful with its mixture of Balinese and Chinese inspired architecture. It is such a picturesque place with statues set on stones on the pond and a fountain surrounded with a lush garden. I felt super zen here!

Moving on, we were invited to a Balinese buffet lunch by the beach at Rama Candidasa Resort & Spa. Super gorgeous and huge resort! 

After lunch, we were invited to the Legian Beach Hotel and Candi Beach Resort for a hotel tour (I believe these 2 hotels are somehow connected because they are very near to each other). I wish I could spend a night or so here! It has got a beautiful beach view, gorgeous swimming pools surrounded by palm trees and unique Balinese statues...these resorts totally set a perfect vacation mood!

3rd March
We checked-out from our first hotel and departed to Puri Santrian Resort (where we spent 1 night here). Also, we have got a series of activities to do in the resort so I was really excited. But first, let me show you our resort!

The interior of The Santrian Club reflects the influence of traditional Balinese style, culture and comfort. 

Their swimming pools are just amazing!

In the afternoon, we were invited to attend a Balinese cooking class by the beach!! We got to learn how to cook an array of local dishes such as Sambal Tomat, Bumbu Bali, Pepes Ikan, Ayam Bumbu and even Satay under the guidance of an expert Balinese chef!! (You may book this activity from the resort)

After lunch, guess where we went? SEA-WALKING!!!! 
Puri Santrian is one of the few resorts that provide this activity so I told myself I CANNOT MISS THIS. Honestly I was kinda afraid and reluctant to go because I can't swim, but the PIC told me that this activity is suitable for anyone, even for those who can't swim!! 

So I went and it was the BEST decision ever. 

I did not regret any single bit of it because it was just so much fun and memorable. I conquered my fear and I gained new experiences that will etch in my mind forever. 

After a short briefing, we were off to the sea! First, a "helmet" will be placed on top of your shoulders and that helmet allows you to breathe normally under the sea. Then, you will be instructed to descend a ladder which leads you to the bottom of the sea. There will be instructors guiding you along the way so you don't have to worry at all! 

When I reached the bottom of the sea, I was like OMG AM I UNDER THE SEA ALREADY?? OMG THIS IS AMAZING. 

We were also able to FEED the fishes and when nearly hundreds of fishes sprung in front of you to get fed, I was speechless. I got to touch the fishes with my own hands, see them up close with my own eyes. The entire experience left me speechless. T__T  Thank you Puri Santrian for this wonderful lifetime experience!!

 Here's a picture of me with Kairul (another Malaysia influencer)! Look at how excited we looked haha! (I will include a video clip of this activity in my vlog!!)

4th March

Woke up feeling a lil dull because it's our last day in Bali already! I wasn't ready to leave yet! :(
We had some free time before checking-out so I went around our resort to take some photos. This photo was taken by myself using two water bottles as tripod with my Samsung Galaxy A8+'s Live Focus function HAHAHA. Pro mou? 

The next post will be a compilation of the cafes that I went in Bali! So STAY TUNED! x

P.S. Fly to Bali with AirAsia anytime you want as they have super high frequency to Bali.
Mon, Tues, Thurs, Sat: 8 times daily
Wed, Fri, Sun: 9 times daily


I love cafe-hopping in Bangkok. Bangkok has many charming coffee shops and it offers a unique and interesting realm of cafes. Today I am going to share with you 3 pink-themed cafes that I went in Bangkok! 

Located in Level 2 of Central Embassy Mall, Sretsis Parlour is a cafe serving confectionaries, coffee and tea. Their concept is super dreamy and romantic; dining here makes me feel like "Alice in the Wonderland". Stepping through its pink doors, be prepared to immerse yourself in its fantasy-looking interior, with fluffy clouds on the ceiling, spiral staircases accompanied by velvet curtains, patterned walls with their signature prints, and pink daisies printed on the floor. I just want to sit here and enjoy my tea all day! 

Interior: ★★★★★
Food: ★★★
Service: ★★★
Price: ★★★★★

Obsessed with the interior. Personally, I am going to rate this cafe's interior 5/5! 

I thought I ordered a "unicorn tea set" so I was expecting a unicorn coffee art on my coffee, but they gave me an orange monster coffee art instead omg (though it looks pretty cute, I still want my unicorn). When we confronted the waitress, she then told us the coffee art was a surprise and it totally caught me off guard.
We ordered 2 tea sets and these cost us about RM150. Ya, pretty pricey I would say and the food were just mediocre honestly (I love my lavendar lemon tart, but Joanne's raspberry thingy was not really good). On a side note, you do have to pay extra 100 Thai Baht for the coffee art!
I really love their wallpaper though!

Calling all unicorn / My Little Pony lovers, this cafe is your dream-come-true. I have been dying to visit this cafe ever since I knew its existence, but I didn't manage to visit it in my previous Bangkok trips. FINALLY, THIS TIME I GOT THE CHANCE TO COME HERE! This cafe is just full of pastel colours and it's just super cute!

Interior: ★★★★
Food: ★★
Service: ★★★
Price: ★★★
You will have to pay 100 Thai Baht to rent the unicorn onesie. 
This cafe is an explosion of all things pastel and sweet!

Unicorns hanging on the ceiling? I'M ASTOUNDED.

We ordered a slice of rainbow cake and a milkshake - too sweet for my liking though.

MATCHBOX - PINKPLANTER CAFEAnother pink cafe that we visited was Pinkplanter Cafe, located in a 3-story fashion store called Matchbox (hehe so you can chill at this cafe after shopping!) Apparently this cafe is pretty popular on Instagram so we decided to give it a try. We only tried their drinks because we were too full from all the sugary eats earlier, so I couldn't really comment on the food. But overall, it's a nice place to relax and have a refreshing drink after shopping.

The #instaworthy pink wall with plants and a flamingo! 

Which pink-themed cafe would you want to visit? Comment and let me know!! 


Recently I visited Khao Yai and Bangkok with my girl, Joanne. If you haven't read about my Khao Yai trip, feel free to read it HERE! After Khao Yai, our private driver drove us to Bangkok. 

This time around, we chose to stay with Hotel Icon Bangkok, which is located right in the city centre of Bangkok - a few minutes away from BTS Ploenchit Station, which makes them an ideal place to experience Bangkok. Major shopping malls like Siam Paragon, Siam Square, EmQuartier, etc are just a 10-minute drive away! 

Spotted these 2 cute teddy bears in the hotel lobby! Instantly I felt warm and welcomed! 
The hotel lobby 

There's also this iMac in the lobby which is exclusively for the guests to look up for information, etc. I actually used it to search for cafes to go hahaha! Very thoughtful of them!
Our Double Superior Room.

Clean and white toilets always win.
Honestly, our room was pretty spacious (there are still empty spaces for us to place our luggages!) and the king-sized bed was super comfortable. The room also has everything we need and coming back to our hotel room after a long shopping day felt just like home! 

We also spent some time exploring the hotel amenities, and here's what we found: 

A rooftop pool & bar boasting an amazing Bangkok city view.

The night view of the Bangkok city from our hotel's rooftop bar and pool.

Located on the 6th floor (same floor as the swimming pool), Violet Bar is the perfect place for you to just relax and enjoy your night with a wide range of drinks and their signature cocktails. The sunset and night city view from the Violet Bar is something not to be missed.

For those fitness junkies who can't go a day without their workout routine, fret not as there's also a gym in the hotel!

Will anyone say no to a hotel buffet breakfast? 

Located at the ground floor, the Cino Bar and Bistro offers carefully-crafted food and beverages for guests. So if you are too tired to head out of the hotel for food, here's your go-to place! 
To be honest, I think this hotel is really good value-for-money because of its amazing location, facilities and cleanliness. And their rates are actually pretty affordable (depending on your traveling dates)! We totally enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this hotel for those who are looking for a comfortable stay that is not overly-priced.
