A Relaxing Time At Marina Bay Spa and Lifestyle Club

September 19, 2018

Every now and then, I would go and treat myself to a pampering session.   This can either be a massage, a pedicure, a hair spa, or anything that can loosen my stress, but nothing too expensive.  Work wise, I have been very busy this first half of the year and my usual pampering session was delayed.  So, when July started…

Hong Kong: Day 4 – The Peak and Symphony of Lights

August 7, 2018

Our last day at Hong Kong was spent touring The Peak and watching the Symphony of Lights.

Hong Kong: Day 3 – Disneyland

August 4, 2018

Our day three in Hong Kong was spent at Disneyland.  As advised by forums and blogs, a whole day should be dedicated in touring Hong Kong Disneyland – and I would advise the same. We bought our tickets online via asiatravel.com.  A ride-all-you-can ticket cost HKD499; however, we were able to buy our tickets at HKD430.  I recommend you try Asia…
