STAYCATION IN A VILLA

I was invited to a 2D1N pyjama party / staycation in Bird of Paradise Villa, Genting Sempah by L'Occitane last week. The invitation came just in time because I just finished 2 papers, and I thought it's a perfect way for me to have a post-exam celebration (although I still have 1 more paper to go on the 22nd haha). 

Away from the hustle and bustle city life, the villa is only a 40 mins drive away from KL. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the comfortable windy weather and the lush greeneries. It was absolutely calming, relaxing and serene. 


Beautiful set-up by the team!

This is the L'Occitane's new whitening sleeping mask which will be launched in August!


L'Occitane surprised us with gifts on our bed! How lovely!!
During our free & easy time, we just explored the villa and take photos. The villa is an absolutely gorgeous place for photo-shooting!
The view ๐Ÿ˜










Dinner was a spread of French canapรฉ served by the amazing chef Nathalie from Nathalie Gourmet Studio.
After dinner, we had some games and activities and we also tried out the new L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Overnight Mask. This stuff smells so good and I woke up the next day with a radiant skin, all thanks to this mask!


The next morning, we woke up to this breathtakingly scenic view.

Prepped our skin with some skin care products from L'Occitane before we head out to the pool and play with the sun!
Got my swimsuit from Forever 21 just for this trip! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Thanks L'Occitane for everything ๐Ÿ˜˜





6 MUST-VISIT CAFES IN BANGKOK

One of the reasons why I love Bangkok is because its diversity in food. Bangkok is known for its Thai cuisine (which I freaking love), it also has a lot of amazing cafes that are really beautiful and great for photo-taking. (Honestly, I do think that Bangkok cafes are better than the ones in KL in terms of the ambiance, interior and food quality)

Last month, I had the opportunity to travel to Bangkok with my boyfriend for a short 4D3N trip. And guess what? We visited 6 cafes throughout our trip and that's why I am here to share with y'all my cafe-hopping journey in Bangkok! 

List of cafes that we have visited:
Hands & Heart
Shugaa
Butterfly Organic Milk
After You
Fill in the blank
Patom Organic Living 

Almost all of them are located in Sukhumvit area (which is nearby Well Bangkok Hotel), that's why I really recommend you to stay in a hotel situated nearby this area if you are planning to visit plenty of cafes like me in Bangkok.



Hands & Heart 

Located in Sukhumvit 38, Hands & Heart cafe is a little tiny cafe with marble furnishing that exudes monochrome and minimalistic vibes. The menu is rather limited, however, this cafe is known for serving good hand-brewed coffee. 

Address: 33, Sukhumvit 38 Alley, Khwaeng Phra Khanong, Khet Khlong Toei, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand.
Opening hours: 7am - 7pm 

SHUGAA 
Shugaa is one of the most beautiful cafes that I've ever visited. A 2-storey cafe, Shugaa is furnished in soft, pastel palettes and crystalline, polygonal structures that create an ethereal, dreamy ambiance. The first floor is connected to the second floor by a spiral staircase, which is the icon of this cafe. Their menu features a range of colourful desserts and drinks in pastel tones. Honestly, I think the pricing is gravitated to the higher end, but if you are a fan of pastel tones, a visit to this cafe is worth the money and experience. 

Address: 27 The Residence at 61 Bldg., Sukhumvit soi 61, Klongtan-nua, Wattana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand.
Opening hours: 10am - 8pm



Butterfly Organic Milk 
Butterfly Organic Milk features a clean, white interior accentuated with woody furniture. It's well-known for its organic milk and yoghurt. We ordered one low-fat yoghurt and it was really good!!

Address: 6, 23 Napha Sap Alley, Lane 2, Khlong Tan, Khlong Toei, Bangkok 10110, Thailand.
Opening hours: 9am - 5.30pm




After You
Famous dessert chain, After You, is my absolute favourite place for Kakigori. It serves a variety of irresistible desserts - Shibuya honey toasts, milk tea, coffee, kakigori, etc. We had the Mango Sticky Rice Kakigori and we enjoyed it a lot. The shaved-ice is soft, refined and flavoured, and it melts like snow as soon as it reaches your mouth. Inside the Kakigori you will find mango cubes and sticky rice, which go really well with the shaved-ice. 

P.S. Do expect a long queue for this cafe! 

There are a few After You branches in Bangkok and you can find them in major shopping malls like Siam Paragon, Central World, Central Plaza Ladprao, Silom Complex. During our trip, we went to the one in Siam Paragon and another one in Thonglor (yes, it's so good that we had to visit it twice)!


Fill in the Blank 
Fill in the Blank is a cafe that features a rustic, cottage-like, wood-dominated interior. Apart from the beautiful homely interior, this cafe serves quite an extensive range of dishes from brunches to dinner. And their brunch which came in a decent portion was absolutely satisfying.  

Address: 28/10 Sukhumvit 61 Alley, Khwaeng Khlong Tan Nuea, Khet Watthana, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand
Opening hours: 8am - 7pm 





Patom Organic Living 
Set in a glasshouse surrounded by lush greenery, Patom Organic Living connects you with nature and serenity in the mid of Bangkok. Promoting a healthy living, this cafe serves organic lunch boxes, coffee, tea and cold-pressed juices. Not only that, you can also purchase organic body care and skin care products in the cafe. 

Address: 9/2 Klang Alley, Khwaeng Khlong Tan Nuea, Khet Watthana, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand
Opening hours: 9am - 6.30pm 




That's all I want to share for this post and to be honest, we spent quite a lot in cafe-hopping during our trip (we uber-ed to all the cafes because uber is so convenient in Bangkok and we were lazy to walk hahaha). 

I hope you enjoyed this post, and do recommend me more Instagram-worthy cafes in Bangkok in the comment section below! I would love to know!

HOTEL REVIEW | WELL HOTEL BANGKOK

Hi guys! Today I'm going to blog about the hotel that I stayed during my recent Bangkok trip - Well Hotel Bangkok. This hotel is strategically located in the heart of Bangkok on Sukhumvit 20 Road, and the BTS Sky Train and MRT station are just 7-8 minutes walk away. Super convenient. Furthermore, this hotel also has easy access to the famous shopping malls such as EmQuartier, Emporium and Terminal 21!

Besides, Sukhumvit area is one of my favourite in Bangkok because it is full of Instagram-worthy cafes and I will definitely be sharing the cafes that I visited in Bangkok in my next post. 



The hotel lobby itself is already an Instagram-worthy spot!
We stayed in the Executive Room during our trip and we LOVE it. With 38 square metres across, this room is super spacious, clean and well-equipped with a comfortable king-sized bed, a huge bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, bathroom amenities, a minibar with complimentary water, coffee and tea, AND even an in-room gym (an exercise bike for you to burn some calories after makan, a yoga ball, a yoga mat, massage ball and a resistance band). Oh, there's also free WiFi in all rooms! ;)




I definitely slept well!!



For those who want to fill up your tummy in the morning before heading out to explore the city, you can book your room that comes with the breakfast buffet. 


To be honest, I would wake up at 7am every day for this (ok, maybe 8am)

Apart from all the great amenities mentioned, this hotel is just so well-furbished with a lot of greens that emanates a truly tropical holiday mood. If you want to have a quick swim or sunbathing sessions, it has also got a rooftop swimming pool. Or let's say if you feel like having some awesome Thai massage, there's also a spa and massage centre in this hotel. Not forgetting to mention, this hotel also has a fitness centre for the fitness junkies. 

#ootd spots everywhere in this hotel! 



Ah, writing this post makes me miss waking up in Well Hotel Bangkok so, so much! I honestly enjoyed my stay here and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!! 

So if you are planning to visit Bangkok anytime soon, staying in Well Hotel Bangkok is definitely a good choice. Check out their website for more info!
