Sunset at Santa Monica Pier

Love and me went for a partial self drive trip to states last year. We only drove in LA as we didnt want to drive all the way to Vegas or San Francisco. We stayed a good 6 days in LA.

LA is really big and I really cant imagine getting around without self drive. Its so unlike Singapore whereby you will hardly spend more than 1 hr getting to anywhere on the island. It was our first self drive trip and was really quite enjoyable. Can tell that he enjoyed the experience as he got to tried on 2 other cars other than our Sasa and it was really fun driving on a different highway ahhahaah

Before the trip we were discussing on where we wanted to cover in LA since we have  6 days and of course we have a few must go places on mind, Disney, Universal studios, Hollywood sign, 2 outlets etc and 1 place which we couldnt really decide on was Santa Monica and even on the arrival we cannot really decide whether we have time for it. But we didnt regret the decision to go… I saw the most amazing sunset at Santa monica! Undescribable there is nothing like that in Singapore!

ImageReally look like a big yellowish egg yolk isnt it? That’s the closest we even get with the sun, i think

ImageImageImageImageImageImageIt was with mixed feelings when we saw the yolk disappearing right before our eyes.. was really beautiful but was a sense of lost somehow..

ImageSo happy that we have left our footprints on such a beautiful place on earth.. miss the place.. Dont think we will have a chance to ever go back there again..

Truly, Madly, Deeply infatuated wwwwwwithhhhh Instagram!

I have decided to create a cyber space of my own after I discovered Instagram… why so? Well…After I download the free app, I realised that that are soooooo much that I can share and want to share… and hence the birth of MerryMerryMerry… So I should give credit to Instagram, right? :)

I must say Im totally blown away by Instagram, a free photo sharing app that allows one to take a picture and apply filters to it. I love it for the ease of usage and one can easily take an expressive pic without having to use any professional software. ImageThis is how my account looks like hahaha WTF I really dont have many followers but I still love the app and all the pics that I posted on it..

Instagram allows me to shoot any pics of my fav stuff like food, cakes, love ones, snapshot of their front view, back view etc, nice dining place, travel destination, toys.. anything… and post it with a filter at any time without much hassle.. Im almost like a young lover who has fallen crazily in love with the app. Like a young lover, who constantly check their phones to wait for that special someone’s sms or calls, I will try to post at least a new pic everyday, checking if there’s new followers or someone who liked my pics every few hours and checking out those pics posted by friends or celebrities that Im following, admiring their post. I will even do that before my bedtime every night! And seriously… all the pics that were posted by everyone looks almost professional and stunning! I really enjoy admiring them!!! 

What made the app very different from other social network is most people allow everyone to follow them and the pics posted by them are meant to be admired by all… This is good for people like me who like to admire people’s pictures and share my own… you have a choice on what you want to post and you will post what you deem as the best pics.. unlike FB where you will upload the 199 pics of your Bali trip.. This is different as you will choose to upload the best or most meaningful..

I’m particular about what i post on Instagram as I aspired to maintain a beaufooool album as much as i can heehee I only want to share those pics that made me happy, or pics that I feel alot about… like what I mentioned earlier, i always enjoy taking snapshot of everything and now Im even more inspired to take more pics, from more angles and better perspective… Instagram.. Im totally infatuated with you hahahah omg!!!

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImagehahah they are really cool and nice pics right? These are some of my favorite pics that I have posted on my instagram and trust me.. i will continue to post nice pics on stuff that I love hahhaa  

Start your own account today and start to fall in love… with the app, with your object, with taking pics… 

 

My Sensitve New Age Bag- Prada BN 2274 Cameo

Yesssss!! Today I’m going to blog about my biggest passion in life….. a topic on BAGS ahahahaha just a thought on them gets me all excited ahhahaha but not to worry Im not going to go on and on on stories of all my bags. Im just going to be focusing on 1 particular bag of mine and of course the purpose of writing on this special bag is not to show off… This is not even my most expensive bag… Nonetheless… i just want to share how I fell in love with this bag…Imagepics from original prada website. This is how the beauty look like!!!!

Before I go on to share with you why i think this beauty is a real brainer in my opinion… I shall touch on how I got this bag in  the 1st place :)

I first saw this bag last year, didnt think much of it as I was not a fan of nude colours then…. 1 fine day earlier this year, I went boutique shopping with my bff, she was raving on this bag and we went to the MBS boutique to try them up… Yes i was captivated by the versatile look of this bag… it is not small, it has a sling to fit the fashion requirement of the bag and the colour seems to go well with most outfit… perfect!! The only thing that is not so perfect i would think, at that point of time was the price!! I was thinking to myself.. goodness!! Im not going to blow S$2980 on a Prada!!! Way too much to spend on a Prada bag… With that price Im sure you can buy a small Chanel if you top up a little more… But even with that, i couldnt seems to take my mind off the bag hahaha opps

From then, I even brought different people to the various outlets to try on the bag to convince myself that i didnt like this bag so much heehee Obviously my efforts failed as i fell even deeper in love with every try.

I was totally elated when my gf offered to get her stewardess friend who was flying to Milan to buy the bag as Europe was only selling the bag at euro 1190! It was only S$2000 after conversion! Turned out, she didnt go on her trip as she found out her pregnancy prior to the trip. And there after, I tried asking a few other friends who were going Europe for trips, for businesses etc to get the bag for me, they either couldnt find the boutique or they didnt have the time… so it was disappointment 1 after another for me….
I then went on a US trip in September and I was quite determined to get the bag no matter what… Turned out, firstly the bag wasnt available in the store that I went, secondly it still will cost me at least S$2700 after conversion and tax.. hence, I missed that bag yet AGAIN…. I was devastated ahhaha for a bag…goodness.. I was quite sure I do not have the affinity with this bag… I had so many chances to get the bag that I love, at the price that I desired to pay but I missed them and so many times… and it has been almost a year

And finally… 1 lovely day…. Santa took a pity on me and ta ta ta!!!!!! I found the lovely bag sitting pretty on my lovely bed when I reached home!!!

ImageImageMy love got it for me as our 2nd anniversary gift!!! He is absolutely lovely right!!!!! Love him to maxxxxx….It was a total surprise as we just came back from States hence i never expect him to spurge…. I was happy, moved and angry at the same time hahahaha but why the anger… well …we still paid S$2980 for the bag… after going a whole big round… :(

Oki oki I know I was going out of topic… I was supposed to share why i think this bag is a beauty as well as a brainer…. what i wanted to share was I absolutely love the design and the architecture of the the interior of this bag! Its the best among all my beauties so far…. It has many smart compartments that help to eliminate the need of various pouches in the bag… you do not need additional handphone pouches/ cases, you do not need to bring make up pouches etc It brilliantly compartmented all the various stuff that you need to put in your bag  

Image

Image

It comes with two small pockets for handphones.. esp cool for people like who owns two handphones… it has another two slots in the middle for cards, pens and a small pocket for keys. It also has two big size compartments, 1 of which for your important stuff like wallet, coin purse, card holders and another one for your cosmetics… and the main compartment naturally is reserved for all your other stuff like bolly, tissue etc.. totally brilliant isnt it? It is almost perfect for a girl like me who like to load their bags with loads of stuff.. it lessen the weight of the stuff that you need to bring with the elimination of pouches and cases

Now are you totally captivated by this beauty… just like me? Im sure you do ahhahahhaha i really hope that there will be more bags that come out with brilliant designs like this.. for bags lovers like us… this is certainly a bonus… This bag is a real charmer, internal and externally… its certainly a beauty with brain :)

Intro to my Travel Magic Helper- The Hand Mask Packs!

After my trip to Hongkong in June, im officially crazily in love with something ahhahaha that is the hand mask pack! I started using them two years back when my bff bought 1 from Korea for me to try. I love it but sadly the supply in Singapore was scares. I only managed to find them in Sasa stores and limited brands were available. Since then, I never fail to travel with them. Why so? Anyone who took a plane before should be aware that few hours on flight actually drys up your skin and hands are esp visible in my opinion. And here you are, the savior to the wrinkled skin on your paws hahahaha So for the past two years whenever I travel, I will buy these hand mask packs from Sasa Stores and will even supply them to my girlfriends who traveled with me hahahha i will wear them throughout the flight even though the recommended timing is only 20 mins. Trust me, the result is so much more better than any hand moisturizer you can find in the market. And the best thing about wearing them on board is, you dont normally do much stuff on board with your hands hence its the best time to pamper your hands! My love will have to serve me like a princess whenever we go on board hahahah  And you cant imagine how many packs I brought along for my recent trip to states hahaha :)

ImageThis is how the hand mask pack look like…I got the assorted brands from Hongkong Sasa!

I think there are a few brands that are available in Singapore Sasa too, but HK still has more variety and much cheaper… I tried some of the brands, not all. Some are two in one and some are two in two. What do I mean by that? Two in one means, there is only 1 sets of mask in the pack, outside dry, inside moist. And two in two means, there are actually two sets of mask in the pack, one sets of wet mask and one sets of dry ones. You will need to wear the wet one before wearing the dry ones. I prefer the two in twos, why? The two in twos are usually made of cotton and not paper hence is more moisturize than the paper ones. 

ImageImageImageAssorted brands that I got from Hongkong. They are mostly two in ones.. moist mask inside,  dry mask outside

ImageMy personal Favorite! I found this in Singapore guardian! It comes in a box of three packs. This is the one with two in twos, 1 sets of wet mask and 1 sets of dry mask, very sweet wine smell, very moisturizing! But sadly, I only managed find them in Holland Village and Paragon branch, hope they will not discontinue them…

ImageThis is how the pack looks like :)

Image dada! Opps that’s the make-upless me on board hahahah on my flight to Europe hahaha pardon me, thats the only pics I can find myself with these magic helper ahahha I will try to remind myself to take more pics with them when i go on board the next time k :P

Do remember to give them a try on your next trip too… Im sure you will fall crazily in love with these magic helper too :) lots of love

Hello Kitty Town Malaysia

ImageThe entrance :)

ImageRed Bow Cafe at the entrance

ImageThe huge Hello Kitty for photos :)

ImageThe cutie tickets!

Hello Kitty town! I was very excited when I was first told that Sanrio has opened their doors in Malaysia! Being a Sanrio fan for years (since childhood in fact) I have always dreamed about visiting Sanrioland, hence was super happy with their decision to open another themepark in southeast asia! kekeke We happily booked the tickets online @ RM65 per adult and I think Malaysian gets to visit the place at RM55 instead.

So the fine Sunday, we drove in from Singapore in our party of five. It took us a while to find the place from causeway. i think it will be nearer to go by 2nd link. Reaching the place, it was a plain, new building with chaotic parking facilities, not impressed yet…

The entrance was cute with the huge Kitty welcoming us and it just made me look forward to  the themepark.

ImageThe 2nd floor entrance to the indoor themepark

We wanted to go in early as we want to enjoy the morning greeting by Kitty and daniel however we only managed to reach there around 1030am.. guess we missed them… Upon entering we realised that the place was actually quite small, about length of 2 basketball courts :(

ImageThe Hello Kitty Teacup ride, the only ride in the themepark And it only has 5 cups hence expect a queue if you plan to go only in the afternoon.

ImageImageOmg! I love the restroom! hahahah every doors has the kitty face :) love love love 

The highlight of the whole themepark is the cutie Kitty home, where you are allowed entry only once ahhahha

ImageImageThe cutie sofa! too bad i didnt have chance to camwhore in it!

ImageKitty’s work station! omg I love it hahaha

ImageKitty fireplace :)

ImageImageKitty’s kitchen :) still cute however I wasnt too impressed with the display on the cabinet… eg rice cooker, toaster,water bottles etc toys that you can buy fromToy r us! I was expecting to see stuffs that are not available outside… too high an expectation maybe 

Next we enter Kitty’s bathroom, one of my favorite part of her house :)

ImageThe giantic kitty bathtub! Dont you want to take a dip inside hahahaha

ImageImageBow on his head heheheheh

ImageNext we enter her bedroom :) cutie alert heehee

ImageIf only we can bring down the dresses and pose with them :( super cute 

ImageKitty’s super pretty princess bed! And you are allowed to pose for pics on her bed! omg!

ImageMe with Kitty :P

ImageImageLast pics taken at her place :)

ImagePlayground for kids 

Image camwhore

ImageMe, sis and baby eyzen :)

Time for some light snacks at the cinnamon roll cafe… too bad choice for food is limited, Curry puff or waffle hahaah Natural choice for me was the waffle since there’s no kitty face on the curry puff :P

ImageImageImageImageThe not so edible waffle that I ordered :(

After the snacks, its almost time for the kitty parade :)

ImageCrowd awaiting the parade

ImageUp, close and personal with oh oh hee badz badz maru :)

ImageImage

After the parade, we rushed to the most exciting place of the themepark, The black wonder! It is where you can play a quest and upon completing you’ll receive a certification :) Confusing but quite interesting…

Image

Another mini-show by kitty and daniel

ImageImage

 

After the mini show, was almost 1pm and the place was getting overcrowded and since we have completed almost the whole place, we took our exit…

ImageMy love being forced to pose with oh oh :P

ImageImageImage

ImageMy cutie kitty fortune cat, the only souvenir that I brought home :)

The place is only worth the effort if you are a die-hard kitty fan and please make sure you are early as the place will be overcrowded by noon :) cheers to my 1st Sanrio experience! Look forward to visit the one in japan…. when will that be ahahhahaha
