Catching A Train To Paris [Let’s Run Away]

28 Aug

When she met this man,

she knew it in her heart that she wanted to run away with him…

It was a cold breezy morning, when I put on my blue jacket, I still couldn’t believe that we were doing this together. We were catching a train to Paris.

Yes, just the two of us.

I remembered I was so sleepy and could hardly open my eyes to take a proper picture, the sky was still dark when we went on board. Everything is just so dreamy…

And when the first sun ray shined through the window, I opened my sleepy eyes and saw a cup of hot coffee and a chocolate bun he has ordered for me.

How comforting.

Being with him, sorts of make me feel like we are not getting any older when we have each other.

The train moved in a very fast speed.

The cabin was pretty empty that day.

It was drizzling out there.

However the skies were beautiful.

It was really quiet though.

He was holding my hand, telling me about the itinerary.

The world was so quiet, and my heart beats fast in great excitement.

I feel like we are running away.

(In a romantic sense of course… hehe…)

Then it’s time for some good breakfast.

You better feed yourself well before the adventure begins. He said.

And he attempted to learn some French.

Uttering broken sentence that sounded really perculiar.

And here we were.

You know, I love the life we live.

Sometimes, you and me just need to get away.

To take some time to reunite.

Some time to fall in love again.

Some time to feel the warmth of the sun.

I wish I could live in this moment forever.

It doesn’t really matter where we are going.

My love, let’s run away with me.

Well, above are the compilation of the food pictures he sent me. There are so many more, but I just couldn’t upload them all… My husband is a very simple man without lots of words, so the caption of all the series of pictures sent is always this: Bring you here next time. Hehe… So I will only be able to tell you how the food taste like when he brings me there next time :P

However, here’s a little bonus from the trip. Le husband was travelling with Singapore Airlines and was being upgraded to Business Class on his return trip (Don’t ask me how cos’ I really dunno, he always has a way of being upgraded…). So here’s a service call “Book The Cook“, where you can pre-select your in-flight meal before the flight. So, here’s the Business Class menu.







So here comes the end of this post. I can’t believe you care to read this far… hehe… *Big applause for you* Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoy all the food pictures from Tokyo and I will definitely make a proper food guide for all of you and tell you how the food in Tokyo tastes like…

When he finally brings me there…



Ispa Johor Bahru Review

3 Jul

Hello Everyone! 

How’s your week so far?

I am so glad that it is almost weekend! Ever since I started working, I look forward to weekend a lot, because that’s when I got to spend more time with the little ones :D (Life sort of changes after you have babies… Weekends no longer equal to parties…)

Today I would like to share about my recent visit to the most exclusive spa in Johor Bahru – i-SPA.
Ispa 21i-SPA is located at Austin Heights Golf & Country Resort, apparently the first and largest one-stop family spa centre that operates for 24 hours a day. I have been hearing various people talking about it. And when the invitation came in, I knew it will be the perfect excuse to pamper myself a little.

And what is so good about it?

Let me show you…

Upon arrival, we were being greeted warmly by the friendly staffs :) And after registered at the counter, we were given a water resistance electronic key that we wear on our wrists.

We were being directed to the locker area to get ourselves changed.Ispa 32All our belongings were being stored in a locker. I would say it is pretty safe because the locker can only be opened when you scan it with your key after the locker keeper scans her tag.

Ispa 31Everyone, please meet my Ma Chérie kaki ->Kim! After we changed into our comfortable “spa attire“.
Ispa 25i-SPA provides kimono-style robe too, in case it gets chilly…

It was my first time here, so I have asked for a tour.

First stop, the VIP lounge…

Ispa 9*The view is so nice~*

There we learned about the establishment. i-SPA consists of 3 floors:

First Floor: Reception, Gents & Ladies Locker Area, Water Relaxing Hub, Changing Area, Restaurant, Manicure & Pedicure Parlour.

Second Floor: Lounge Bar, Children Playground, VIP Area, Movie Theatre, Cyber Cafe, Massage Area, Cafeteria, KTV Room, Snooker Area, Rest Hall.

Basement: Massage Room and Capsule Room.

Kim and I were discussing about how we should spend our day here…
Ispa 15Oh ya, did I mention that they provide us with matching slippers too?~ *Hehe*

Ispa 30So we decided to have our lunch first at the Forest themed restaurant located at 1st floor.Ispa 16Lunch was being served in buffet style with lots of excellent choices.Ispa 11It comes with free flow of coffee, tea and ice cream!Ispa 12After feeding ourselves with the scrumptious food, we headed to the movie theater to catch a movie. Ispa 27There are 2 movie theaters, showing Mandarin and English movies simultaneously.
Ispa 28Best thing about it?

You can enjoy the movie while lying on a huge comfortable reclinable chair…

After the movie, we headed for the…

Ispa 14

We immersed ourselves in the jacuzzi spa and relax while the massaging jets creating wonderful bubbles and move water around us. Kim and I were sitting side by side, quietly enjoying some peaceful moment away from our busy daily lives and had a good conversation talking about our dreams…

About 20 minutes later…
Ispa 26We went into the sauna room. (Btw, I finally invented a pose that can hide all my tummy fats *applause*)

It has 2 sauna rooms and 1 steam room beside the spa. You can see I was wearing my swim wear, but in fact i-SPA provides paper bra and panties. Which means you really don’t need to bring your swim wear.

After sauna, we took a shower and went for the massage. The bathroom is really well equipped with shampoo, shower gel, and other amenities such as contact lenses solution, toothpaste, powder, comb, cotton buds, hair spray and so on…

i-SPA has an impressive menu of massage services, Chinese or Thai style; from head, shoulder, foot and leg; to cupping, scrapping, ear candling etc…

I booked myself a Chinese style head & shoulder massage and it was conducted at the rest hall by a very experienced masseuse. It was a 30 minutes massage and was so comfortable until I nearly doze off…

Here is the rest hall, secluded behind the tinted glasses to provide quietness and privacy.Ispa 5The rest hall consists of lines of reclinable chairs, each attaches with a screen, keyboards, mouse and headset. There you can rest, surf the internet or watch movies online.

After the massage, we went to the cafeteria located at 2nd floor to snack on some curry puffs and chocolate muffins.Ispa 24From her face you can tell that the massage is really good.

It was such a delight to have a cup of coffee and snacks after the wonderful massage.

Ispa 17Just when I took the first sip of my coffee, suddenly the “wedding march” song played on the speaker and about 6 dancers each holding a stem of rose started dancing beside me… O.O

What’s going on?

Ispa 23Then I realized that they were having a rehearsal for a surprise wedding proposal! *How romantic* :) Later I read from the page that the girl said YES! If you are curious like me, you can click HERE for the story :D

And It’s KTV Time!Ispa 18Karaoke experience redefined when one can lie down and sing at the same time!

Ispa 22Then, it’s dinner time…

(T.T) How I manage to lose weight if keep on eating like this…Ispa 20The selection was wide. Dishes consist of local cuisine, Japanese sushi, western food, salad bar, cakes, ice cream and a chocolate fondue~
Ispa 19Some of the facilities that we didn’t get the chance to explore are:

Hair Saloon Ispa 8

Cyber CafeIspa 7

Snooker AreaIspa 6

Manicure & PedicureIspa 4

Capsule RoomIspa 10Capsule room is an interesting feature. (For your information, the entrance fee covers a 24-hour stay in i-SPA.) If you choose to spend a night here, you can reserve a capsule room at the counter at RM10 on weekdays & RM18 on weekends. A capsule room will be perfect if you are staying over night on your own; but if you are here with friends and family, you can reserve a bigger VIP rest room with 4 beds at RM100/room.Ispa 13Kim and I decided that we can share a room to save some money… *Hehe*

Well, so till here, my “mini vacation” has come to and end. It has been a wonderful experience to spend a day in such an exclusive spa with a good friend. You can read about her experience HERE. If you asked me, I would say it is a great place for family recreation and girls outing. Very friendly environment for the children and elderly. I might bring my mum along on my next visit :)

I think she will like it~
