(Week 25 Updates) My Unforgettable Stay in Amari Vogue Krabi


Hello everyone, It has been one month since i'm back from Krabi and life has been really busy!
Despite being so busy, there's a need for me to pen down this entry on my unforgettable stay in Amari Vogue Krabi.

Came across this hotel as it is highly recommended in Tripadvisor and reviews have stated that this hotel has a laid-back and luxurious environment.. In addition, the resort is located near / next to a private beach (Tub Kaek Beach) with rooms that have breathtaking ocean views.. Although it is secluded, it is still accessible to the islands available around Krabi.

Took their Amazing Summer package at THB 19,400 which includes:
(works out to $792 for 3 nights stay)

- 3 nights stay in Deluxe room including daily breakfast for 2 persons
- Roundtrip Transfers Krabi Airport
- THB 2,000 Baht Spa or Dinning Credit
- Guaranteed Late Check-out until 14:00 hrs.
- Welcome Drink
- Fruits & Flowers
- Free WiFi Internet Access
- Free use hotel kayak upon availability


Upon reaching the arrival hall in Krabi's Airport, the driver greeted us warmly while bringing us to the Van (Our Plane was delayed for an hour so the poor chap had to wait for us)

The journey from the Airport to the hotel took about 40 mins and there wasn't any jam (Unlike the road conditions in Bangkok).. After reaching the hotel, we were greeted by few of the hotel staff and they helped us immediately with our bags..

Even thought we were 2 hours ahead of check in time, no questions were asked and check in was done fast.. While processing our check-in, Warm towels and cold drinks were served...To my surprise, the GM of the hotel (Michael) came down to welcome us personally as well!!  Such warm hospitality! You will never receive this kind of service in Singapore...



Michael told us that he had arranged a room on the top floor for us so that we could enjoy the sea view... As per my understanding, there are only 57 rooms in the hotel so you will not face any overcrowding issues...

Despite having insufficient sleep, we still want to look our best the next day....

Puffy eyes, dark eyes circles and dull complexion are our main concerns if we have insufficient sleep so here's my advise on how to minimize it!

I'm also someone who faces Insomnia problem due to high level of stress at work which results in my mind being too active during the night... Sometimes i'll use sleeping aids when i have to really tryhard to sleep but cannot (WHICH IS NOT RECOMMENDED).. Sometimes, i will just do some reading in order to make myself very sleepy.... Sometimes, i will just lie on my bed till i fall asleep....

As i'm a really vain person by nature and i want to wake up looking good, i'll make sure that i apply eye-cream and my skincare essentials before i head to bed... Therefore, even with insufficient sleep, i won't want to look so haggard the following morning..

Recently, Syek Yi From Kiehl's has sent me 2 products from their midnight recovery range which will help with skin restoration overnight!! After experiencing with the 2 products, they are really my life-savior when it comes to looking my best with little sleep...

My Journey to obtaining Double Eye Lids (Surgery procedures & post surgery experiences)


Hello everyone!!! Finally i'm able to find time to blog about my double eyelid procedures.. It has been about 6 months post surgery and i'm really happy with the results.. People have been telling me that it looks really natural... About the scarring, all i can say is that unless you stand really close and stare hard at my eyelids, then you can see the small scar.. :)

Took this picture about one week ago while i was in Krabi.. Even with Zero Make-up, my eyes look so much awake and bigger..



So now, i'll touch on the surgery procedures... I'll try my best to recall and pen down each and small details.. I'll suggest that you read the first post before reading this and here's Part One in case you have missed it.. As i was't allow to take pictures in the clinic, the following will be full of words so please bear with me..
 

1) As mentioned, i went to the clinic for consultation and it lasted for about 45 mins... I chose to do the surgery right after consultation as i would not be spending many days in Taiwan.. The nurse got me to fill up some consent forms and after which, i made the full payment of NT25000 (which includes the consultation charges, surgery fee, medicine and aftercare).. In case you are wondering, i paid for everything in full and this is not sponsored!


2) After more briefing of the procedures by the nurse, they led me into a room to change.. They handled me a warm and fluffy pyjamas and i was told to remove all jewellery (so as not to interfere with the medical equipment in the room).. I also spent some time trying to pin up my hair... When i was done, I was brought to see Dr Chen he explained the entire surgical process to me. Next, he confirmed the height of the crease that i wanted and made a making on both lids.. To make sure that the creases are even, he told me to open and close my eyes a few times to double confirm.

(Sponsored Advertorial) Say No to Fog with OPTIFOG lenses!

Do you often face this situation after you alight the bus / cab / car / MRT?

Yes!! I'm talking about fogged up lenses!!!



I don't know about you but i find this situation embarrassing.. So often, i'll wipe it off asap!

So why does fog forms on our lenses? Did some reading and here's my findings:

Fogging occurs when an imbalance formed between the air temperature and relative humidity (Like when weather is warm or cold). This imbalance leads to water vapor molecules forming on lenses in molecular form. When many of such vapor molecules combine together, an opaque film will form over the lenses resulting in a blinding effect that hinders vision!!!

(Picture credits to Google's image)



So no matter you like it or hate it, Fog happens anytime and anywhere.. Especially in hot and humid climate like Singapore's, fog will form very easily which leads to an unexpected blindfold that greatly compromising the clarity of vision. 

As mentioned earlier, fog occurs from quick cold-to-hot temperature changes in humid environments due to different situations like:
1) When you step out of a cold environment like air-conditioned offices or vehicles and shopping malls etc.. Fog will attack when there is rapid change in the environment and temperature.

2) When you are engaging in indoor activities (like drinking hot drinks, eating hot food, boiling a pot of water or opening the dishwasher).

3) Any outdoor activities (like sweating when playing sports) which in turn obscures vision and affects performances.
It can also be a persistent problem in many working environments, especially those in which safety or precision are a priority, such as surgeons wearing masks or workers with protective goggles.



As fog is part of our lives and bring about many problems, an overwhelming 75% (Out of 1.6 billion eyeglass wearers worldwide) have expressed a desire for anti-fog solution for their lenses to improve their vision. As such, Essilor being the worldwide leader in opthalmic lenses which helps millions of people daily to see the world better has came up with a product which help battle fog! 






Know as the 1st high performance and durable anti-fog lenses - OPTIFOG, this eyeglass lenses are the result of 
breakthrough technology that offers immediate and efficient protection against fog.
