The hostel offers dormitory beds and private rooms. I stayed at the 8 beds dormitory and loved how spacious it is. There is an open rack with hangers for everyone to hang their stuffs on. Other than that, there is a bedside drawer with lamp. The drawers are pretty spacious but cannot be locked.
There is a pantry, a toilet and a shower room with 2 wash basin and 1 mirror in the entire floor. The facilities are shared within everyone on the same floor. The same floor has 8 dorm beds and 1 private room.
The bed is comfy and soft and clean. A comforter and a blanket is given along with a big almost square-ish pillow.
Toilets are generally clean though the floor of the shower room tend to be a little dirty.
The floor tend to be a little bit dusty but I think it's more because many guests wear their shoes into the room. But because the hosts vacuum and clean everything in the morning, i find everything clean enough.

However, Laundry services that include washing, drying and folding can be provided for €10. I accumulated a big load and had them do my laundry for me. The detergent they used made me smell good the next few days :)
It's been a long while since I've come with such a random post. It's always nice to choke the blog with valuable reviews and trip posts but once in a while we all need a bit of craziness. Or maybe I'm just a little obsessed with my shopping loot and wants to show it off like any other girl hahaha.
Unwrapping a parcel is always exhilarating and done with respect. But unwrapping a taobao parcel this big and have been anxiously anticipated this long ... is a little barbaric lol.
Dental World Manila: http://www.dentalworld.com.ph/
I found Dental World Manila online and was happy to that know they cater to foreign clients too! Having a professional website and an active Facebook page also helped to reaffirm the legitimacy of the clinic to me.
Unlike some dentists who would rush through the explanation process, Dr Hazel took as much time as needed to ease my anxiety and to let me know the true condition of my teeth.
I'm not sure about you, but I hate going to the Dentists. Childhood experiences with our school's dental team left only dizzy memories of spinning ceiling, non stop drilling sound and an un-explainable fear.
However the experience with Dr Hazel and her team at Mall of Asia was nothing like that. Sure, the drillings had to continue because reconstructions needed to be done. But I felt safe being worked on by Dr Hazel. I felt like if I was really scared or in pain, I could let her know without any fear of reprimand. Unlike some dentists who paralyzes you with their overwhelming presence, Dr Hazel was very patient and approachable. Halfway through the procedure, they even proactively applied a generous layer of lip balm (or vaseline) on my lips because they noticed how dry it was getting. Isn't that sweet of them? I think maybe only a female would understand the agony and embarrassment of dry cracked lips hahah.
I even had an Ice cream this afternoon because I couldn't resist the temptation of a 55peso Magnum *_*

I just came back from a 11d10n trip to China. The trip involved 3 beautiful cities and 5 towns, not a very rushed trip as you can tell. I personally prefer to take my time meandering around a new city and experiencing the different possibilities. I also had to allocate more time for myself to find my way around as I was travelling alone in a place I have never been to before.
But going around on my own made for a really experience rich trip that I can't wait to ramble about. However before I venture into 1000 word long essays of each attractions, here's a picture itinerary with some description. This entry will share the flow of the trip and hopefully, give prospective travellers some information to base their next trip on.
Let me know if you guys liked such entries.
Lam Sam Yick was a calligraphy brush making company that started in 1917 in Fuzhou, Fujian Province. The company relocated to Taiwan in 1946 and has since spanned across four generations. With the decline in use of calligraphy, the business has since ventured into the world of beauty brushes. Lam Sam Yick’s brushes are said to be incredibly soft and comfortable.
This Skincare brush range is made in collaboration with the Beauty Guru/ Skincare Teacher from Taiwan; Liu Yan Teacher. She is most famous for being a regular on the hit Beauty talk show; Nu Ren Mo Zui Da. This Bye-Bye brush specifically targets removal of blackheads. The brush has a ring of short soft bristle on the outside while the inside consists of extreme fine but tough and flexible synthetic fibres.
“Clean Acne BYE-BYE Brush
Teacher Liu Yan is very particular on cleansing as cleansing is the most important step for a beautiful and healthy skin. With the collaboration with LAMSAMYICK (LSY), they have specially designed a two-layer brush which has a mix of different diameters in the inner and outer layers.
Clean Acne BYE-BYE Brush is made of Synthetic Fibers 化纖 where bristles will not break. Designed with a softer-touch exterior and a harder-touch interior bristles.With the inner layer bristles smaller than your pores made of 0.07 mm, it is able to penetrate deep into the pores where the underlying dirt are. While the 0.10 mm outer bristles are responsible for loosening the blackheads/whiteheads and acnes, accelerates the acne health and boosts metabolism time.
For those with healthy skin, this outer layer of brush can also be used to clean the deepest part of the skin, to help adjust the skin so as to prevent the growth of any blackheads and acnes.
Able to use this for your nose, hairlines and other parts.”
Apparently the Bye-Bye blackhead is so effective in removing blackheads, Taiwanese Singer & TV host Pauline Lan even managed to remove a 10 year old blackhead with it.
When I impromptu-ly decided to fly to Japan for the sakuras (Cherry Blossoms), the first obstacle I faced was the unbelievable lack of accommodation during the last weekend of March to the 1st week of April. Hotels and hostels everywhere were sold out! God must have taken pity on me as I somehow chanced upon this little place in Osaka.
Here is my review of the Dolphin House Osaka .
Hotel Name: Dolphin House Osaka
Address: 577-0801 Osaka Prefecture, Higashi-osaka, Mikuriyaminami 2-1-38-A802, Japan

It might not be very apparent in this blog until recently but I actually travel quite a bit for someone who holds a full time job. I often get so caught up with life that I cannot fully share my travel journey on blogs and most of the photographic memories captured just stays in my Harddisk.
But I’m not here to talk about my backlogs really. I’m here to say I travel a lot. And if possible, I travel alone. And people around me often asks, why do I keep travelling alone? Why? Because I want to open up chances for beautiful encounters like this to happen!
I chanced upon Vicky and Qian in the famous Philosopher’s Path in Kyoto and little did I know we would end up connecting so well.
Gion is a historical area in Kyoto that IMHO, serves as one of the most iconic representative of Japanese culture.
“ Gion (祇園?, ぎおん[note 1]) is a district of Kyoto, Japan, originally developed in the Middle Ages, in front of Yasaka Shrine. The district was built to accommodate the needs of travellers and visitors to the shrine. It eventually evolved to become one of the most exclusive and well-known geisha districts in all of Japan.”
Gion is famous for it’s large amount of traditional wooden houses (Machiya) which so embodies the image of traditional Japanese architecture. Gion has evolved into a highly prosperous district that is filled with restaurants, shops and Teahouses. Most notably, is the Hanami-Koiji street where there is the highest concentration of Ochaya (teahouses) and where the Geishas receives and entertain guests.
“ The most popular area of Gion is Hanami-koji Street from Shijo Avenue to Kenninji Temple. A nice (and expensive) place to dine, the street and its side alleys are lined with preserved machiya houses many of which now function as restaurants, serving Kyoto style kaiseki ryori (Japanese haute cuisine) and other types of local and international meals.
I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about this eyeliner! This has got to be one of the most unique eyeliner product I’ve come across the past year or so. This product was sent to me for considerations. I’m sorry I took so long to review this awesome product.

K-Palette is a popular drugstore makeup in Japan. Products from this brand can be seen in pretty much every drugstores, beauty stores or pharmacies in Japan when I was there. K-Palette is most famous for their 1 Day Tattoo liquid eyeliner that boast an amazing 24 hours of lasting power and has been the No.1 best seller for the last 4 years. In Singapore last year, they launched the offspring of their top selling product; the 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h WP Micro. Haiyo, these Japanese people must really stop giving their products such long and tongue twisting names lah! Anyway, back to review.
