Meiishop @ 321Go Soft Launch Party

These days, there are many beauty online platforms to make our life easier and beautiful.
Sometimes, I don't even know which one I should go for, because most of them have almost the same products and brands.
Agree, right?
I guess after all the main concern is about the pricing, and services, perhaps?
So, here's come the Meiishop, a complete new online platform which offers a different online shopping experience to the consumers in Malaysia and South East Asia.



Meiishop is a unique and complete online platform, which offers the most extensive and up to date collection of beauty, cosmetic, and fashion products.

Danny Wan, is one of the Malaysia artist who is now producing and selling his own designed T-shirt at Meiishop.

Spa Warm Eye Mask @ Watsons Malaysia

Eyes are the window of the soul, do you agree?
That's why everyone said that you should not only take good care of your skin, but it's also important to take care of the skin around your eyes.
For instance, putting eye cream or eye serum will help to avoid wrinkles and fine lines.
However, I think that's not enough.
I think those things are useful, but I also think keeping your eyes relaxing is essential too.
Especially nowadays, we are not only looking at the computers daily, but also facing at different kind of other electric devices such as smartphones.
I am not sure about you, but my eyes are feeling much tired compared to before.
That's why I always looking for a solution to relieve and soothe my tired eyes.



Recently, I had tried the Spa Warm Eye Mask from Watsons Malaysia.
It was such a good eye spa to relax my eyes these days, with it's convenient and and comfortable used.
It comes with two different scents with Chamomile and Lavender; but I think you hardly smell the fragrance because the smell is very mild and gentle.





The eye mask has it's self-warming heat cell at 40
It warms up gradually without microwave or hot waters.
Which means, the eye mask begins to warm up right from the moment you open the package.
And, the heat will go off gradually after you take it off in 10 minutes.
So, it is definitely safe and convenient to moistens and soothes your tired eyes at almost everywhere such as breaks between work, before bed time, during travel, before events, or during relaxation. 



How to use:
#1 Remove eye mask from pouch.
The mask will start to warm up once pouch is opened.
#2 Place ear straps around ears
#3 Use for about 10 minutes
I used it for more than 10 minutes, probably extra 5-10 minutes, and the eye mask was still warm.



It's not my first time using this kind of warm eye mask, I have used the Kao Megrhythm Steam Hot Eye Mask from Japan when I was travelling to Hong Kong.
Compared to both, I find this Spa Warm Eye Mask is easier to wear and it fit well to prevent the eye mask dropping off from the face.
I think it's because they use better ear straps compare to the thin material that Kao Megrhythm used.
But, I think Kao Megrhythm is much warmer (sometimes it can be too warm if you put it on your eyes too long), however this Spa Warm from Watsons has just a moderate warm feeling.
Design wise, I think Spa Warm wins them all.
Don't you think the overall packaging is just so adorable?
Anyway, both eye masks bring the same benefits for relaxing and smoothing your eyes.



The packaging is super cute with the brightly coloured.
And the eye mask itself is so adorable to wear it anywhere.
I guess we have no excuses for pampering and refreshing ourself with this 10 minutes Spa session for our eyes everyday now!
 

Spa Warm Eye Mask costs RM23.90 per pack.
Each pack comes in 5 individual pouches.
It can be purchased at Watsons stores, as well as shop it online.
I recently fell in love with purchasing at Watsons online store, since it's so convenient and sometimes I can get better deals and free gifts too!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy today's sharing.
Do let me know if anyone of you have tried these yet. :)
Till next post!

Wat Rong Khun & Giant Buddha @ Chiang Rai Thailand

Chiang Rai has been in my bucket list for sometimes, and I am glad that I finally made it here in February.
It was such a great opportunity to visit Chiang Rai after the visit in Wangdang Uttaradit since it was just about 5-6 hours drive.
We decided to stay in Chiang Rai for 2 days, and followed by Chiang Mai before heading back to Malaysia.
Oh Chiang Rai! I always heard about you from my friends and families, and now finally I got the chance to visit you in person!
I felt so thankful!



Wat Rong Khun, is the main reason motivates me to visit Chiang Rai.
I have been wanting to visit this beautiful temple ever since I looked into the beautiful pictures from the internet in few years ago.
All the white pictures impressed me a lot, and I know this is one of the place I wanted to see it with my own eyes!



It took us about 5-6 hours drive from where we were in Wangdang Uttaradit.
I can't say it was a long drive, when we had a few stops at some local temples, and petrol stations.
Big thanks to our driver who gave us a safe journey all the way to Chiang Rai.



When I first met the white temple, I was totally shocked!
"Beautiful"!
"Incredible"!
My jaw was dropped for the first time witness the unique temple, with it's all white painting on the unique designs and architectures.



It needs entrance fees at THB50 for one person.
Since it took me such a long time to visit this beautiful place, seriously I can't say no for paying it.
However, it doesn't mean that you don't get to see the white temple without paying an extra entrance fees.
It's just that you are not allow to enter and walk inside the temple.



Due to the popularity of this temple, be prepared with long ques, flooded with many tourists from different countries, and noises from the busy buzzing crowd.
It can be very annoying, especially when a temple should be quiet and peace to visit.





Everything in the white temple has an unique architecture, design, and impressive attention to detail.
Some figures are very special that you don't normally find at other temples such as different skeleton heads hanging on the trees, hundreds of ghostly hands over the bridge and so on.
It's a mixture of creepy and beautiful feeling.



No shoes are allowed when you walk inside the temple.
So everyone will be given a plastic bag to put your shoes inside.



 

The temple is still work in progress.
I can see the backyard is still expanding with a few more buildings.
I am sure it's gonna be a true big master piece in Chiang Rai after everything is completely finish.





I bought a silver prayer plate and put down my wishes before I left the beautiful temple.



Another temple?
#lol It's actually a bathroom!
My advice is do not leave the temple without visiting this special piece!





I truly adore with the passion of Artist Chalermchai Kositpipat.
I would say it's the best master piece to visit in Chiang Rai even though you need to pay an entrance fees at THB50.
I think it's all worth while since it might take you a long way to travel to Chiang Rai.
If you are planning to visit Wat Rong Khun, I would suggest you to visit in the early morning or late in the afternoon.
It was extremely hot when I was there at about 3pm.
With all the noises around, and the super hot sunshine, it can make you sweaty and moody on your trip.



Before the sunset, we went to Wat Huai Pla Kung Temple, where the giant Buddha located at.
Since it was kinda late in the evening, so there aren't many people over there.
It's quite rush for us, as we must capture as many pictures as we want before the sky went dark.



The big Buddha statue has total 9 story Chinese temple where you need to climb the long staircase to reach up to the hill.
There are some public carts available if you can't climb the stairs, however a small token must be given to the driver.





There is another lift to take you to the 25th floor, where you can see another Buddha located.
This cost you extra THB40.
We didn't go for it, as we thought we didn't have enough time, and the view from where we were already amazing and impressive.




The place with the pagoda, and temple is not yet completed.
Hopefully it will all done when you get there one day. 



My first day in Chiang Rai was great.
The weather is getting colder, and the most important thing is I get to witness how beautiful the white temple is.
On the second day in Chiang Rai, we visited Golden Triangle, a local bazaar, and a tea farm up at the mountain.
Well, stay tuned to my next blogspot of Chiang Rai so that you don't miss out!.

Hippo Food Exeprience @ Wangdang Uttaradit

Today, let's get into food and beverages in Wangdang Uttaradit.
Me and Lik always travel to Thailand, well at least once a year for food and shopping, but eating like a local still takes us a little bit of work.
So, most of the time, we just went for the restaurants and cafes with most locals.
It's very lucky to have Lik's aunty, Kung, to be our tour guide during this trip.
This is also the main reason why we choose Wangdang Uttaradit as our holiday destination. #hehe
She brought us around to enrich our travel experience and get us behind the scenes access to Thailand.
Truly blessed to get to experience Thai culture in a different, and more personal way.



Let's wait no more and see what I have for you in this post!



First breakie in Chiang Mai, right after we touched down.
Headed to the food stall to fill our stomach with the local curry noodle.
It has the similar curry taste like in KL, apart from the bouncy chewy noodle texture and also the crispy crackers on the top.



A spoonful of chili flakes to bring up spice levels! #yea



Thai satay!
Very thin slice of chicken marinated in some Thai spices.



One more please, for sure!



Then, the first Thai lunch on the mountain.



I like the cold weather here.
The fresh air and blue sky on the mountain can simply make your mind and body relax.



Highlight of the lunch.
Fish Tom Yam, have you ever tried it before?
It's my first time.



Som Tam, the papaya salad is a "must" order at any Thai restaurants.
Also, Lik's favourite. :)



Dinner was so special on the first night.
Cim-Cum, is quite similar like the shabu-shabu.
Pork was marinated with raw egg, and then pour everything in after the clear soup was boiled!
One of my favourite local food, and till now I keep on missing it! #hehe
 

Grilled Dory Fish Set @ THB59, about RM7.50 only!
Surprise?!



Highly recommend Swensens to all of you!
The ice-creams are soooo good, and the prices are very fair and reasonable.
You must try it when you are traveling in any parts of Thailand.



Sweet M Gold @ THB105, about RM13.40 only!



Nutty Banana @ THB159, about RM20.30 only!



Chocolate Lava @ THB175, about RM22.30 with a Lava cake!



Best restaurant at the downtown Uttaradit I must say.
Have tried out couple of dishes, and all were very delicious.
Recommend it to everyone if you travel to Uttaradit.



Khao Ka Moo, the pork leg on rice, my most favourite Thai food!
 

The Steamed Chicken Breasts on the bone stays sooo moist, and it's best to eat with their chili garlic sauce.



Crispy Pork Belly is so delicious till makes my mouth watery.
The meat is flavourful, the fat oozes into the meat, and the skin at the top is super crispy.



I love all dishes we had at this restaurant!





Thanks to our host, Kung and her family for preparing the home-made BBQ!
We really enjoyed it sooooo much!
The local BBQ is kinda different with ours in KL, but pretty similar to Korean BBQ.
You can choose to wrap the glass noodle and vegetables with either pork or fish, then dip the roll in the chili peanut sauce.
It's very delicious!







Living in the countryside is generally very relaxed and calm; not only that, the living expenses are also much lesser!
It's impossible to get a dry or soup noodle @ THB25, about RM3.20 in the city.



Best thing about Wangdang Uttaradit is they have a small cozy cafe which selling cakes and coffee.
Coffee in Thailand is very cheap compare to Malaysia.
I can easily get a good coffee at THB45, which is about RM5 only.
Somehow I think Malaysia has very expensive coffee. :(



Sticky rice is one of the famous food in Thailand, as I see the locals have it all day.





Very much disappointing that there aren't any mango sticky rices in Wangdang, but lucky enough to try something new, Jackfruit sticky rice.



Fish lovers, try their Fried Fish!
I can finish up one whole fish by myself. #lol



The Crispy Deep Fried Pork Belly also known as Moo Grob, is one of the famous Thai dishes.
You can either eat it all by itself or with one of their dipping sauce for the meat.
No matter if you eat with the special meat sauce or just the meat itself, the meat are still the best crispy and crackly. #superb



An authentic Thai food dinner before we left Wangdang Uttaradit.
I remembered I ate 2 bowl of rice on that evening, #haha apparently rice is the staple food for the Thai meals. #fatdie



Couldn't get rid of the Fish Tom Yam Soup.



Fresh fish everywhere in Wangdang, and also very cheap!



Thai Fish Cake, they look yummy, isn't?



Some spicy roasted pork?



A kind of local vegetables, which is very tasty and refreshing!
The texture is a bit like the square beans.



I love Thai food, and I really do!



I'm glad to know Thailand a little more throughout this trip, and also hope you enjoy reading my post too!
Of course, we don't only travel all the way just to visit Wangdang Uttaradit.
We do also planned a road trip to Chiang Rai too.
Will share about it in my next travel post.
Meantime, feel free to drop me a comment if you want to know more about my trip. :) 
Daume Ddo Bayo (See you again next time)!
