The Awan Villas - Seminyak, Bali

This post is purely about our accommodation in Bali. 
My sister found this awesome luxury villa deal on Groupon.

To be frank, the price is a little expensive but trust me, 
On top of that, you have all the privacy among yourself *AWESOME*. 
I think Seminyak is the prefer area if you enjoy less crowd.

Just for your information, Bali is huge and they have so much to offer.
To avoid spending so much time on travelling, pick your priority of the trip and stay as nearer as possible.

Our accommodation also comes with free daily breakfast plus 1 way airport pick up services, free wifi as well as free an hour massage.

Here is our awesome driver who came to pick us up from the airport.
The highlight is they got my sister's name correct which is rare.
Thumb up for that. :) 

Checked in and heading to see our villa. 

The most excited moment is about to reveal!!!!

Free welcoming drinks while we explore the villa.

TA DAH~~~~
I wish I don't have to leave. 
Look at that pool man!! 
This is L.I.F.E

Our villa comes with 2 huge ass rooms (1 with a king size bed and the other 1 comes with 2 single beds), a private pool, a living room with TV and a kitchen for you to cook some instant noodles at night. :)  

Man!! Now looking back at the pictures really make me want to visit Bali again! 

And here is the living room overseeing the pool.

Can you see the white frangipani flowers everywhere?
They smell really good too!

My dad can't wait and get changed then go straight into the pool while I obviously updating my instagram. LOL!!!!

Sooo romantic! Now I understand why do people always go Bali for honeymoon.

The picture below is to show you how it looks like during the night.
Isn't it romantic? Or just me? 

Here is the second room with 2 single beds.

All their bathroom come with an outdoor shower as well.

The receptionist there were very helpful. 
He is explaining every little things to us.

Not to forget the Villa is really close to all the famous places like Naughty Nuri's Warung (10 to 15 mins walk), Potatoes Head Club, Seminyak Square as well as Ku De Ta (5 to 10 mins drive).

I guess is time to plan another trip down to Bali. :)

Spring & Summer - Bangkok

Confession: I am the worst travel partner ever because I don't usually do the home work before travelling. 
Thank God for friend like Xiao Hou for doing all the planning. :) 
This is not our first trip together and I'm thankful of her for doing all the planning and research. 

She found this awesome restaurant called Spring & Summer in the center of the city. 
Spring & Summer is a modern and hipster restaurant that used the theme of two seasons (Spring & Summer) just like the name. As for Spring, you will get to dine inside the building with air condition and for Summer, you will get to chill on the sacco sacks outdoor. 

Meanwhile, the plan of the night is to meet up an university friend who has been working in Bangkok for a couple of years.

Selfie while waiting for our taxi at the lobby. 

I always love taking picture from the back. 
Don't judge. 

The taxi driver dropped us at a wrong place and it took us awhile to find the restaurant.
We even walked into a wrong restaurant and only realized it isn't Spring & Summer when they do not have our name on the reservation list. :D 
Thank you to Waze for making our life so much easier. LOL!!! 

This place is sick and I really love it!!!!
It's like the perfect place to chill and hang out except the invasion of mosquitoes. 
If you guys are planning to visit this place, 

If you do not like outdoor, they have indoor as well. Don't worry!! 
If you plan to visit, please remember to make reservation in advanced to avoid disappointment.

I really love the open air and laying down on the sacco sacks concept!!
We need this in Malaysia? Don't you think so? 

And the couple decided to meditate and mentally psycho themselves that there aren't any mosquitoes. 
Try harder next time. 

From the left: Tenn Sen, Me and Xiao Hou. 
Thank you for guiding us the way too! :) 

Their menu are inclusive of Asian Cuisine, Thai Cuisine as well as Western Cuisine.
Since I have a crush on Pad Thai and I must order it whenever I see it on the menu. 

Here is the Pad Thai with River Prawns

Mushroom Spaghetti

Salmon and Avocado Rice.

Let's dig in!
Overall, I find the food good and tasty. 
Just the pricing are at the higher end. 
I guess when you visit places like that, you do not just pay for the food, you pay for the ambiance as well. 

A group wefie is a must! 
Thank you Tenn Sen for coming out to meet us. :)

A proper group picture of the night.

This would be the perfect place to wind down and chill after a long day of shopping! 
And it is away from the busy touristy spots.
Something less mainstream as well. LOL!!!! 

Below are the details of the restaurant, just in case you guys want to pay a visit. :)

Address: 199 Soi Sukhumvit 49 (Promsri), Sukhumvit Rd, Klongton Nua, Wattana, Bangkok 10110

Sister's Graduation Ceremony

OMG!!!!! I have left my blog dead for soooooooo long that I couldn't even remember when was my last post.
I even have this post kept as a draft for years since 2013!!!

Anyway, I decided to clear this post out so I can blog something new and updated.
I will try my best to jot down as much as I can recall. :)  

The youngest person in the family has finally graduated and I can hear my dad cheering deep down inside his heart!
He must be popping champagne and thanking God for clearing his burdens. LOL!!!

The graduation ceremony was held at InterContinental Hotel, Jalan Ampang.
The place is actually very small and it is soooo crowded that day.
That size of space is definitely not ideal to cater so many graduates + their family members.
You can hardly get a place to sit down or find a nicer corner to even take a picture.

So many names that it took us awhile to find my sister's name. 
(This is definitely not the problem of small eyes, don't try to blame it on my eyes)

And I don't understand why do the flower seller has to charge so much for an artificial flower???!!!! 
I know this is the day where you go big or go home, but must you go so big?
R I D I C U L O U S 


Below are some of the pictures that we took on that day. 
It is so hard to find a place and take some decent pictures.

This picture should be the one that print it out and hang it on the wall. 
How lovely!!!! 

Specially requested by Dr. Loi (in his dream). LOL!!! 
And he wants this picture to be printed out and hang it up on the wall at home. 

Looked like we are attending my dad's graduation ceremony more than my sis's.

So many things have happened since 2013 and I want to jot down as many as I can before I forget everything. 
Some of my memories are fading already. :( I blame it on aging. 

Since I'm free, I shall blog it more often. 
That's all for now. :)
