The classic Japanese : Takayama-shi!






Another day here and we're now in Takayama. I didn't expect it to be this cold and snowy but it still beautiful with the white snow in the morning. 
 Another complicated meal, which is one thing I love about Japan.

The view from the hotel. 



The famous red bridge in Takayama, which I can't remember the name. Across the bridge, there's morning market selling fresh vegetables and fruits.








One thing you shouldn't miss while staying in Japan is fresh coffee. For some reason, every coffee I had here were so good.

Fujiyoshida (富士吉田)


If there is the second time, there will be the third and forth...

I can't deny the beauty of Japan and this time, I come back to Fujisan again for the second time. This time, I stayed for one night at Kawaguchiko area. The weather was not the best so we didn't get to see the mountain sadly (and somehow, it's snowing). 



This the first complicated dinner, but it was so delicious!






And a classic Japanese green tea...



Another complicated breakfast, but again, it was so delicious.

Nagoya City!


Spring has finally arrived and it means the beautiful cherry blossom tea in Japan! 

Our first destination in Japan is Nagoya. We arrived here early morning of the 23th of March.



Here are the two iconic things in Japan, bicycle and vending machines. I was very fascinated by the vending machine that has hot drink in lol. 


The first Sakura near Nagoya Castle (名古屋城).










Food in Nagoya station, which I can't remember the name of the restaurant because we're too hungry.

Just a lil Naughty Purchase


Right after the YSL Christmas collection came out last year, I made up my mind that I need that star-looking lipstick in my life but sadly it was sold out everywhere in the world. I kept going to the YSL country to see if they had it or not but they didn't so the woman there recommend to get the similar shade instead. It's the YSL Rouge Pur Couture in shade no.70, which is a nice nudy pink colour. I'd say that it's not that pigmented but very easy to apply and the colour is so beautiful. Now I know why that lipstick was sold out everywhere 




And of course I feel like I need a proper lip balm, so I decided to invest in something like Jo Malone Vitamin E Lip treatment. At first I felt like I spend too much money on just one lip balm but after using this for a week, I totally love it as the applicator was so easy to apply and the lip balm itself is so moisturising. Another thing I concerns a lot when buying one lip product is the smell, this smell like something vanilla-scented.


For me, I am a person that choose to invest in some products that is high-quality and I'm sure that I'll use that product until it ran out. This two lip products would definitely be the one, and I wish to invest in something like this more. 

Do you have any makeup or skincare I should invest in?

Fujiyama


It's like a dream come true to get a chance to see the real Fujiyama in Japan. I was so lucky that the sky are clear and the view was so beautiful! 

We went to see Fujisan at the Oshino Hakkai village around the Fujiyoshida area. Overall it's okay but the best thing is to see the mountain clearly. 

btw, it was so cold!

Clinique Moiture Surge



By have never been in such a dry weather before, my skin struggles so much when I was in Sweden that I had to buy something that would cure my dry face. I discovered this Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, which turned out to be incredibly cheap there.



One thing I noticed since I open the packaging is that the smell of Alcohol is very strong, so if you're allergic to this ingredient in skin care, definitely skip it. However, I decide to give it a try and I'd say I quite like it at first. My skin felt so soft and moisturised during the first and second weeks of using it. But after two weeks, I found it's too heavy for summer time and I decide to go back to my all time favourite Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion.

I'd definitely go back to this one when it's winter and my skin start getting dry again, but now it's summer, this one may be a bit too much to use on daily basis.

Have you ever tried the Moiture Surge Moiturise?

Tokyo 2017

Back in January, I went to Tokyo for some reasons and to be honest I didn't expect that I'd like that city as much as I do now.

I expect this city to be super chaotic and tiring to live in, but it turned out that I was completely wrong. This city is so chaotic in the way that it's so nice and orderly.


The famous Shibuya Crossing!! 




I found that just 5 minutes from Shinjuku, which is one of teh largest city centre in Tokyo, it turned to be so peaceful and quiet place. I stayed near Yoyogi park and it's so calm even during the day. It's surprisingly quiet unlike in London or in Bangkok.

Beside the city, people there are so nice and friendly. They're very helpful even you can't speak Japanese (which I can't).













And one thing you can found in Tokyo is the view of the most beautiful sunset on the skyscraper like Sunshine City.

And until we meet again Tokyo...

Prepared for a Cold Trip



I know that buying winter clothing in Thailand is unnecessary, but I have an upcoming trip to somewhere that I will need those winter fashion. To be honest, I'm more exciting for winter fashion more than excited for the trip itself because I've never experience such a cold weather before.

One of my wish-list is the Club Monaco Jumper, which has the details on the sleeves. That is so cute but still looks basic. I saw Josie from JosieLDN wear one of the Club Monaco jumper and it looks gorgeous on her so I think this one might be cute idea to start of the winter fashion. And as I'm going on the coldest period of the year, a nice pair of leather glove would be nice. I spot the micro-bow leather glove from Ted Baker and it looks gorgeous, I wish I had this when I go to Japan, this would look really nice with my Ted Baker bow cross body bag I have.

Another winter essential is a pair of boots, which I spot one that looks like high-end style. I found this H&M studded boots, which looks so chic while not too much for a plain outfit. I think this boots would be convenient to take ff on plane as well. And lastly, there wouldn't be a wish-list without a bag. I have been obsessed with channel-style fabric for a while and I found this mini backpack from Zara, which look so lovely with the chain strap. This one would make my travelling a lot easier as I have to carry 2 suitcases with me on-the-go.

That's all of my winter fashion wish-list, which I'm so excited for and I hope I will get some from the list before I go on my trip.


Do you enjoy winter fashion?

Jamie Italian Bangkok



There's a good news happened in 2016, which is the launch of my favourite chef's restaurant, Jamie's Italian. I'm very determine to try this restaurant since I was in UK, but I didn't get any chance to, so this is the good opportunity to try out and see how it goes!



When I heard that the Jamie's Italian is at Siam Discovery, I immediately decided I have to try the food there because the location is so convenient. One reason I love this restaurant is because this branch has a huge window, which make the restaurant bright. I'm kinda person that don't like dark place that you can see nothing.



Choosing from the menu, I'd say that the price is not that bad compared to the Jamie's in London or Stockholm. It's more of a acceptable price range. One things I found is they don't have any draft beer available at the time I went which is quite gutted but it's okay.





First of all, I'm really impressed with the Balsamic Vinegar that served with the Focaccia Bread. It's so smooth and gentle. The Parma Ham Pizza is not that impressive but not bad compared to other restaurant in Bangkok. I'd say that the Genaro's Spicy Sausage did better in the taste.





For the pasta, I've tried the Gennaro's Tagliatelle Bolognese and still obsessed with that dish. The pasta itself is good as well as the sauce. However, the Spicy Penne one is not my preference as it's too spicy.



Overall, I'm obsessed with the Gennaro's pasta and surely go back and try some other menu there. The price is not that expensive compared to other Italian restaurant here in Bangkok. I love the atmosphere and the staffs are very nice, so definitely go try this if you're Jamie's fan!


Have you ever tried Jamie's Italian?
