Holiday with Asia Web Direct and Lufthansa :)

I've always love Asia countries. Sometimes I think we asians takes holiday-ing in Asia for granted. You will learn and experience many things that you've never know. In Asia, you will discover thousands of different cultures and many type of people that you will meet along the way. Some say that asians are the friendliest people you will ever encounter :)

Everyone loves going for holidays but hate to plan it as we have to check out flight schedules, hotels ( OMG there are millions of hotels to choose from) and what to do when you are on a holiday on a specific place?

With Asia Web Direct, your holiday journey will start smoothly!
AWD is a website where they will plan your holiday and give you many choices and reviews at a good price. One thing which I like about this website is that it has a 24 hours telephone line so that you can call them anytime! Not only that, if you call, they might even offer you a cheaper price!

Isn't that a steal?

Perfect dream holiday with a good start

I recently went to Bangkok via AWD, and was pleased to fly with Lufthansa Airlines.

I've never flown Lufthansa before, it's an airlines from Germany and something that catches my attention was, their uniform back in the 50's are designed by Christion Dior! YES, you read it right! That's fashion statement for you! It's now currently designed by Gabriele Strehle, a local Germany fashion designer.

Also, Lufthansa is one of the very first planes which provides WIFI :)

Yes, INTERNET on plane!

When we arrived at KLIA, we were then ushered for check in followed by dinner at the lounge where we wait for our plane to depart.

With the Nuffnang group :)
Redmummy, Yang Baobei and ME

Everyone could bring a plus one, but my cousin Sheena was sick on that day so she couldn't fly with me :( But she's feeling much better now!

At the lounge for makan makan

My flight ticket with 23 kg luggage allowences YAY! TIME TO SHOP!

Time to fly with Lufthansa!

I was very excited when I entered the plane, because it was my first time checking out Lufthansa.

First Class

Comes with bed and chair, how comfy can this get?

Business Class

Big chair and well deserved space

Economy Class

Standard comfy chairs and space

We were greeted by the main stewardess and was served champagne on the spot as she took us around the plane :) They were warm, kind and always smilling :)

After walking around, we were ushered into our seats at Business Class. This was actually my first time flying Business Class although I've flew numerous times. It was an awesome seat and I was so happy and overjoyed! They even have headphones ready for you at your compartment for your in flight entertainment. I flew with other airlines before and wasn't given a headphone although we have a player infront of us. They said it's because it's a short flight.

I was so happy that Lufthansa offer this service although it's a short flight to Bangkok, even Economy class gets to enjoy this privileged! I watched The Great Gatsby, The Internship and New Girl while I was on the plane going and coming back to KL.

Then meals were served! :) Makan time!
PS: This is also the same meal for Economy Class

I didn't even know we landed as the journey and landing was so smooth.

After landing, we were handed this magic pass.

We don't have to que or wait! It was straight to the Premium Lane where our luggage was infront of us. I've always hated to que, but with this, it's like magic!

After collecting our luggages, we went straight to the hotel for some good sleep.

AWD placed us at Chatrium Residence Sathon which is an area which I'm quite familiar with as I like staying at that area. It's basically the banking and business area. It's a very clean and quiet area in Bangkok.

Then we were ushered for hotel visiting in Chatrium Sathon.

They also offers hotel apartments and residences

One bedroom

all comes with kitchen and laundry area!

This hotel is HUGE! From rooms to apartments, gym, swimming pool, children's playground, children's playing room, huge meeting rooms to choose from, laundry, mini mart, spa and also hair saloon! All these in one building.

I could live here and not go out, everything is just a walk away. This hotel is most suitable for business conferences, meetings or a family holiday where your children will enjoy and might not want to leave.

What I did in Bangkok?

I took the cab ( cabs are super cheap ) to Sampeng Lane and Indian Market to buy fabric for my latest collection. They've got many great choices, awesome/good material at a very much cheaper price.

It was purely a business trip for me as I was already sketching drawing of my Spring Summer 2014 collection which will be launched either end of this year or early next year, so stay tuned for it.

After that I took Yang BaoBei and Ken for massage at Pratunam area followed by dinner.

I've been for massages countless of times when I was in Bangkok, it's cheap and good.

One hour full body Thai massage only cost RM 20. No joke. From the other room, I could hear Ken laughing as it was his and Yang BaoBei's first time massaging by a masseuse.

They even told me it's the best massage they ever had!

I was glad.

Then it was straight for dinner and TOM YAM IS NO execption when you are in Thailand.

I took them to IFEEL, which is just right across the massage parlour

I've always come here as the food is good and cheap :)

After dinner, we went straight back to the hotel for some good rest.

Normally, I will go out to a bar to enjoy a cocktail or the night view of Bangkok, but I was so tired and the bed was so comfortable that I decided to stay in and just enjoy the room :)

If you are to visit Bangkok, one of my favourite place would be Sirocco where the movie Hangover was shot. It has such an amazing view which no words could describe!

I've also been there a couple of times and even last month I was there with my girlfriends!

Here are Top 17 rooftop bars in Bangkok!

Here are 2 that I've been to:

Sirocco at Lebua Tower

 and Speakeasy by Muse Hotel

I just discovered Cloud 47 via and can't wait to experience it next month! Yes I'm off to Bangkok again next month for my cousin in law's HENS NIGHT!

Looks super awesome right?? Cant wait to try it out!

Basically, you can find anything at

Attractions, hotels, restaurants, nightlife and the list goes on!

After 2 nights in Bangkok, then it was time to say Good Bye or how the Thai people would say
la-kawn sawatdee”

The driver came and pick us up and we were at our last stop before flying with Lufthansa again. This time, we stopped at Sky Chef, where they cater for over 30 airlines from around the world.

We were taken a tour around the kitchen and I was amazed by it. Do you know that airplane food are the safest?

They are so strict with everything. 

We were served First Class meals


 main course


yummy little fella :)

Yup, this is how we have to dress when we are about to enter the huge kitchen ;)
Safety for the food first!

After the meal, then it was time to fly back to KL, but fear not Bangkok! I will be back next month! Can't wait to check out for more information about this amazing city :)

Thank you and Lufthansa for this amazing experience.

This is a short video I did while I was in Bangkok :)

Hoya BlueControl Lens

Hey you! Yes YOU!
Are your eyes tired from staring at the computer too long?
I know I do as a blogger as I face the computer pretty much 12 hours a day or less?

Well to begin my story, I wore spectacles since I was 7 years old. Yup, 7! I was playing too much Atari video games with my brother and had to wear spectacles at a young age. My now power are 700 on left and 500 on right. I do wear contact lenses for events, but for work ( which is basically when I'm infront of the computer, I wear spectacles : ) PS: My eyes are brown in colour, got it from my mom, all thanks to my great grandfather who is Scottish and NO I don't wear any colour contact lenses.

Back in this now Digital World, with your TV, smartphones, computer and tablets, these all can cause your eyes to strain. Everyone should be aware that eyes are actually very important and should learn how to take care of it.

I went to get my eyes check and was introduced to Hoya BlueControl Lens. It's the world's 
best selling Japanese spectacle lenses.

The Hoya BlueControl lenses which helps neautralises the blue light emitted by LCD and LED screens ( your digital devices ) preventing it from eye fatigue and eye strain and even sleeplessness. This keeps your eyes in a much better condition and even more comfortable and a more relaxed vision and a better contrast perception when you are using your everyday digital devices.

This is what this lense can help you :

1.Reflect blue light, preventing eye strain and fatigue
2.Reduce glare for a more comfortable and relaxed vision
3.Enhance contrast perception offering a more natural colour experience
4.Protect your lenses against water, dirt, grease and dust, keeping them clean for longer

Also, these are a few tips that I learned from Hoya

I know I can't live without my digital devices. If I lost my phone or laptop, I'll be doomed!

I've been wearing the Hoya BlueControl Lens for a few weeks now, and I must say everything look clearer and I can just sit infront of my laptop for hours without restraining my eyes. You know how this generation, everything is ONLINE and you are basically infront of the computer most of the time whether you are a student or a working class.

Plus, it is part of my job to sit infront of the computer and blog away :)

Healthy eyes are very important to me. I dont know how would I live I go blind. Even if I took out my spectacle for a while, I will feel a lil bit of dizzieness.

After the check up, comes the hardest part!

Which frame to buy?????

These are all the frames which I chose to try. I only wear black frames every since I visited Hong Kong when I was 15 and everyone looked so stylish in their thick black frame. I was inspired.

Can you guess which one I chose?

Ta Dahhh!!!!

It's quite similar to my older frame but bigger. I wanted to choose the bigger frame ones but it totally looked so big on my face!

After a week of waiting for my lens, it finally arrived from Japan :)

I hope I look more chic after wearing this brand new frame from Salvatore Ferragamo

I personally think most people are suffering from Digital Media Symptoms like tired, dry eyes, head and shoulder strain and headache after a long hour of sitting infront of the computer and now many people cannot live without digital devices, am I right? :)

Everyone wants to be updated.

But always remember, health comes first!

Hoya Blue Control Lenses will be available mid October nationwide.
