Bangkok x Sofitel So Bangkok

Of luxuries, elegance and excellence - Sofitel So Bangkok
'We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act but a habit.' 

Was privileged to be treated to a wonderful 3 days and 2 nights at the exquisite boutique Sofitel So Bangkok hotel. And of course, went on a much needed shopping spree and holiday with the little pretty imp!

this was just the start of our 'So' awesome stay at the quaint yet modern hotel!
Treated with a pretty lavender welcome drink in the swanky reception lounge once we arrived!

And then we got our room in no time! Chose the Water theme which proved to be an excellent choice!
beautiful blend of blues, and checked tiles. modern yet vintage, quaint yet luxurious!
Did you know, the whole hotel, themes and even the uniforms of the staff at the hotel was designed by Monsieur Christian Lacroix? His artistic expertise is definitely evident in the stylish and exclusive lounges.

super comfy king sized bed, complete with Mac as our TV! Super awesome and we ended up watching lots of youtube videos on the larggge screen! 

AbSOlutely dreamy and comfy.

And an awesome selection of snacks and beverages, all on the house!

After enjoying the hotel room for quite a bit, we headed out while it was still daylight! Got lost a bit and walked sooo much before finally reaching our destination at Platinum Mall!
Taking the BKK trains!
Finally reached Platinum, legs almost breaking on top of the hot sunny weather...

And dinner was at a yummy japanese restaurant! Always love Bangkok's japanese food!

Nightfall beckoned and we were back at the hotel to get rest! Self imposed curfew since we were just 2 young girls traveling, ahem!

And the next morning, we were delighted with the beautiful spread for breakfast at the Red Oven Restaurant. The interior was exquisite with tall glass windows allowing sunlight to flow in abundantly, combined with modern wooden fixtures. A perfect ambience for breakfast I would say. And of course, the quality food was delicious with a wide variety of choices, the best breakfast I've had for a while!

And of course after brekkie it was round 2 of shopping and stomping around in the streets of BKK again! 

And so, a wonderful trip with an amazing experience with the luxurious Sofitel So Bangkok hotel. Definitely look forward to checking in here again on my next visit to BKK! 

'How excellent are you today then?'

Adidas King of the Road 2013

"I run because it's so symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can't. But then you find your inner strength, and realize you're capable of so much more than you thought."

Am so excited and gearing up to prep self and train for this event! The last time that I did a 10km was eons ago with my TGIF pals! And this time, Justen and his pals will be joining in too and I'm sure it will be extra lively and fun!

i love my #cookiewookieappletart so much :)

easy peasy! my white whiskers are my secret to marathoning!

Road runner and protector of keys.
this little doggie wags her tail happily in gratefulness after our 30 mins run, when I was almost half dead.
I think she is a born marathoner!

excited for the run!

run for joy in life!



life is fun when you let it.

ku de ta on a saturday night in singapore!

Great music and drinks,
and fantastic peeps to dance the night with! :D:D:D
Always love girls' night outs.

My favourite kind of clubbing - Minimal drinking with Maximal Dancing!
I think this should be what clubbing should be really!

mini rant:

Drinking too much just gives you unnecessary empty calories and a bad headache the next day. In contrast, minimal drinking with maximal dancing burns you so much calories with so much fun with your friends on the dance floor! Its glamourous dancercise! Lol. 

 Except for the occasional indulgences, really, who needs alcohol when you can enjoy dancing as it is?!
Lovin' this MD MD!

Mom's vintage dress of 20 years still in perfect mint condition. So very precious!
I want to pass down this dress to my daughter in another 20 years. <3
My mother, such a pretty, capable, successful yet kind woman. 

Depend on ourselves to do our very best in everything, then learn to trust in God and leave the rest to him. :)

I actually miss my own style of cooking! Nothing much fancy, but I miss clean, wholesome and healthy meals!

Doodling possible designs for cococrystael :)

mirror mirror

if you understood that your reality is merely a reflection of your inner world, how would you think differently today?

saturday afternoon

burgundies and gold

amazed by lace

what you think is what you get

a parallel universe within our inner minds and outer realities.

how would you think and hence live then?



Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to.

and in a blink (actually in 30 hours and 4 transits), I was teleported back to sunny sg.
the land of progression, strive and quest of continuous improvement. 

with my favourite heart shaped teaspoon yay!

and now I've got these yummy babies back home with me!

cute cake-in-jars :)
dreamy chocolate souffle at robertson quay on a friday's night <3

And a cute little cafe nestled in the everton estate :)

Awoken by chirping birds on a Sunday morning at home <3

And really, Home is always where the heart is.

Have a great weekend!
