Staycation @ Movenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa

Back in January, hubby & I needs a break but intend to have it happen in Singapore. While browsing through the range of hotels, actually we have totally no idea which hotel to choose. Staying hotel overseas is a norm but its kinda unusual for us in fact its our 1st time choosing to stay in a hotel locally.

After reading reviews and doing some researches we picked Movenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa. Its located in a very vacation feel place "Sentosa". Sentosa is an island but part of Singapore. Meaning I can travel like & feel like a tourist but less of the custom process.

The room check-in process was a breeze, upon arrival we were served with a a scoop of movenpick ice-cream and a refreshing drink (oops no pics as I was in relaxed mode at that point.) Like everyone else I love checking in to freshly groomed hotel room.

 
Liking the color coordination of the room, its simply cozy! The bed was soft and pillow was fluffy. Defintely sweeten my dreams for the night.

The doorway is spacious too. Imagine if I'm a foreigner lugging huge baggages. This would be the kind of doorway I want. Besides placing my stuffs, I still have space for my hauls later.

my favorite Nespresso coffee machine!
satisfying selection of tea & coffee capsules for you to choose from.
 
the milk capsule is kept chilled in the mini fridge right hidden inside the cabinet.

checked out the bathtub, its absolutely clean & shiny!
Sad to say I didn't get to use it as I forgotten to bring along my bath salt etc... (-_-")

This room comes with separate standing shower room.
The hotel provide us more than enough towels for our use during the stay.

Here is me! hmm 8 months ago...

The dressing area in the bathroom is well lit, great for putting on makeup.
Opps, there is the empty movenpick ice-cream cup which we enjoyed earlier upon check-in.

 

love the full view glass window in the room. we had great time overlooking the unblock scenery.

the electronic controlled curtain makes pulling the curtain together just one fingertip away. 

Merlion peeking through the building.

This is Merlion, Singapore very own trademark.
 
 Overall, I enjoyed my 1st staycation at Movenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa. The staff are friendly and polite throughout our stay. I remembered there is this aroma scent throughout the premises, it definitely raise up the bar for vacation feel. Its well located within walking distance to the monorail which can bring us back to city life just stone throw from Sentosa. I don't have to say much for the room right. You may read up reviews from tripadvisor on how they fare.

I can't wait to blog my other trips....



Hello I'm back!

Hi all,

I had been missing from the blogging scene for quite awhile, hmm I should say it had been almost a year since I last sit in front of my laptop drafting post like this one.

Indeed life was a bitch for me, many things had changed and more challenges ahead that awaits me. Guess time really spoke for it, skincare & makeup are something I totally cannot live without. When I'm not blogging, I still keep posting updates via my instagram account.

Once again, thank you for your support!

In Love with Seoul

I'm back from my well-deserved holiday after doing months and months of research about this vibrant city! Ever since the invasion of K-pop & K-drama, I had make plan to visit Korea one day! But the plan usually falls through due to weather (kids can't go when its freezing cold or crazy hot), language barrier (how to place order for food or even take transport?), feedback given by friends who dislike korea culture in the first place (i wonder why they choose to go then "O_o) etc

this time round, we (mum, sis & i) decided to choose korea over taiwan for our once a year ladies getaway! Its proved to be an awesome choice after all! NICE!

Firstly, we carefully select on the dates (oops, actually i missed checking out as we happened to chance upon their Chuseok aka thanksgiving day and its also Mid-Autumn_Festival. Interesting to know that we share a same celebration date as the koreans. Happen to be there on this day is a good and bad choice which i will share later.

Update! Back from Holiday

Hi all,

it had been such an awful long time, since I last blogged. I had been away for 2 weeks for my well-deserved holiday to korea & taipei! Since its a free & easy trip, I went thru countless travel guides and travel blogs trying to make sure I will be able to survive & minimize the chance of getting lost. Well, I succeed but its definitely at the expense of my long research time.

I'll be posting more on my trip shortly.

Thank you for reading!

New Launch | Jill Stuart Fall Makeup Collection 2012

Receiving email from Jill Stuart always get me excited! This time round, I think I might be able resist further for their eyeshadow collection as my preference for eyeshadow palette would definitely goes to Spring or Summer collection as compared to Fall as I love happy colors.

This is also the reason why I'm more obsessed with BLUSHES the selection of shades are usually in pinks & peach. In my opinion, blushes are more of an essential makeup item as compared to eyeshadow palette.

Would you be hauling this season??

My love & random

I love reading travel blog that could bring me straight into another travel trail without intruding into my bank account.

I love to wander around aimlessly on the street to explore the other view of the same old place.

I love to spend hours & hours sitting in front of makeup stash to swatch, test & experiment to rediscover my old flame that had been forgotten.

I love long bus ride that give me a good excuse for personal time to daydream or even to catch forty winks.

Do you share any similar love as I do?
