Bangkok Haul: Accessories

Hello beauties,

Recently went on a family trip to Phuket and Bangkok, Thailand. Yet to recover from the beautiful memories :).

Except for a minor incident and some bad experiences (thanks to the airlines we choose), the trip was great and refreshing.

Phuket is a paradise with crystal clear beaches, sands, and sun. Bangkok, often named as shoppers paradise has a lot more to offer than just shopping.

In fact, looking at the extent of fake products available, I couldn't buy even a single makeup product there. Just got loads of earrings, some hair accessories, and some face masks (Watsons) from Pratunam.

And finally, a lovely perfume Chance by Chanel (from Suvarnabhumi airport).

Am planning to do a separate post for all the places we visited and how we planned our trip. Stay tuned!

See ya...

Mussoorie Travelogue 2013

Hello Girls,

Had been missing in action for a while now as I was travelling during the Holi Week to Mussoorie. Had a great and must-needed trip with the whole family. Sharing some pics with you all today.

The Hotel we stayed at: Padmini Niwas, a nice and clean budget hotel located at one end of the Mall Road, with awesome views of the Doon Valley, and great food. We took a package for three nights four days with breakfast for a deluxe room and it cost us 12K only. Since it was holidays the prices were hiked and in off season the package would be 7-8K only.

Singapore Trip Memories

Hey there,

How is your day coming along??? As promised in my HAUL post (read HERE), I am posting some of the pics from my recent singapore trip.

First a few things about singapore, it's a very clean and green city from whatever I saw of it. Next would be that it is an expensive city. Third, it is the most comfortable and well-planned city I have seen (considering that this was my first international trip).
We were there for 5 nights, the first day was just the flight and some local trip to a mall nearby. We stayed at Ibis Novena in Singapore, a three star hotel. The room was not very big but comfortable with all the amenities you would require. It had an MRT station at just 5 minutes walk, which we never got around to using, cause we had found all about free shuttles to all tourist destinations.

Day 1: We went by Singapore Airlines, as my son was 2+ when we were boarding the flight, so we got a separate seat for him as well. The staff is super friendly and couteous, the kids also get a kit for playing before take off. There are special Child meal in the flight as well. Simply love Singapore airlines :) Most of the tourist attractions have a discount (10-15%) if you show SIA boarding pass. This came in handy for us at many places. Read for details below.
Reached Changi airport and were cruising on our way to hotel in a taxi in less than 30 minutes after touchdown. talk about efficiency.

We stayed at Ibis Novena Hotel, it's a relatively new budget hotel but extremely clean and efficiently maintained. The hotel staff is extremely helpful and will help you with all things you require at any time of the day. The only negative point was that their only restaurant would close down before 10pm and there was no room service. We settled for this hotel as we wanted to save money yet be close to Orchard Road from where there were free shuttles to most of the tourist attractions.

Day 2: We had planned for Full Day City Tour, there are many tour operators running these kind of services and we chose FunVee HopOn HopOff City Tours. For most of the attractions we visited entry for children below three years was free. It was fun, a double decker bus with open top allowing you to visit all major locations in Singapore with ease.

The tours start from Singapore Flyer and there is a shuttle, which picks you up from your hotel. all major hotels are covered so it should not be a problem, wherever you decide to stay. We went about in the Flyer as well, some pics below.
