Bangkok is always a good idea.

I believe most of us have visited Bangkok and they are known for their amazing local food, long-list of instagrammable cafes, and cheap shopping deals at their markets. So many reasons to love Bangkok. 

I visited Bangkok last 2 months  ago during Songkran festival with the invitation by SO Sofitel Bangkok. The experience was once in a lifetime. Let me put it this way, I think I would prefer to get wet in a pool party rather than on the street with my makeup and outfit being splashed by random people. They even go after me if they see I'm in my dry clothes. TOTAL NOT MY KIND OF PARTY.

Apart from the Songkran, the rest of the itinerary was just amazing. 
We stayed in the Water Room under SO Sofitel, which there is a bathtub facing Lumpini Park. There are 3 other room types with a different concept covering Earth, Wood, Metal and Fire. 
The Metal Room wasn't too bad as well. 

The pool view.

SO Spa is always a good idea to cure your soreness after a long hour flight. 

You can even get your caffeine fixed at KOF, which just located at the G floor of the hotel. 

Ever since I pick up gym, I will try to work out whenever I travel. SO Sofitel gym will be one of the hotels that offers such extensive gym facilities.

I have no words for this view. 
The hotel also offers fine dining experience at Park Society (highest floor). 

Apart from the activities in the hotel, I also check-listed some cafes, bars and local food. The only pitfall travelling to Bangkok during Songkran is most of the restaurants will be closed. If you are a foodie, don't come during this time. 
Cafe: Boyy & Son

Cafe: Featherstone

Local eats: Khao Tom Pla Kimpo
Local This long-standing boiled rice and fish spot is near Asiatique. The distinguishing element is the clear broth, made mainly from pork and fish bones topped with garlic chips.

Bar: Sugar Ray, You've Just Poisoned
Entrance can be creepy, girls who are afraid of toys are not suggested to visit this bar alone *wink*. 

Restaurant: Issaya Siamese 
Fusion thai dishes that offer less spicy taste. Their highlight is probably their dessert show. 

Watch more visuals via my Bkk video too. 
Till next travel destination.

Singapore is always a good weekend staycation, especially when you are hosted by M Social Singapore
Nestled in the heart of vibrant Robertson Quay along the iconic Singapore River, M Social Singapore is a boutique hotel designed by renowned French Designer, Philippe Starck, which offers accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

There are 4 room options available. I spent 2 night staying in the Loft Premium room feature high ceilings to create a greater sense of space. There is a dedicated work and living space at the bottom level and the bed is located on the mezzanine level. 
Meanwhile some of the rooms have the opposite...

Apart from the self check-in kiosks, M Social Singapore also features robotic butler, named AURA - has been designed to deliver duties like sending water, fresh towels, toiletries and room service to guestrooms. 

There another chef robot prototype named AUSCA, whom is designed to make the perfect egg dish at hotel M Social Singapore's award-wining restaurant, Beast and Butterflies. Though I didn't manage to make it to meet AUSCA, I'm sure he is pretty impressive. We did dine in the restaurant during dinner time and the lobster porridge and chicken-rice popcorn is really really good!!!

I always try to make time to the gym whenever I travel. Ya'll know, the food and drinks making you feel bloated after...

Bloggers friends TongTong (from Thailand), and Laiza (from HongKong) and I attended candle-making workshop in the hotel as well. M Social Singapore is organising interesting workshops every month to get people to participate, interact, and meet new people during their stay. 

We visited Gardens by the Bay at the best time as they were having a Sakura Matsuri programme. They literally flew in the cherry blossoms from Japan and visitors have plenty of photo taking oppt without having to fly to Japan.

We also made a visit to STPI Gallery, which is 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel. It was Dinh Q. LĂȘ: Monuments and Memorials exhibition showcasing his first-ever 3D weavings, which feature the recent refugee exodus from Africa and Middle East into Southern Europe. 

Besides the gallery, there is Sprmrkt Kitchen & Bar which I would suggest you visit them because this instagrammable restaurant is planning to close down and change it to event space instead. What a waste. 

Strolling along Haji Lane, we found ourselves at Blanco Court Prawn Mee. Food that makes me feel like home. 

1 min walk away from the Blanco Food Court is Hangar cafe. Not the best gram spot, but their coffee is pretty good. 

Not a typical lunch at Open Farm Community. With its farm to table approach, this restaurant promotes local farming with its effort to use homegrown herbs and freshwater fish for instances, to whip up creative dishes for the customers. Because of the limited local ingredients, their menu is very much seasonal and well-thought. Don't miss out their desserts too!!!

Dinner at Hua Ting can't be any better. Every dishes is paired with a specific tea to elevate the taste. So so good. 

Mandatory visit a new bar whenever I travel. This time is Catchfly. Super hideout for the reclusives one (I'm getting there,lol). From the tiki cocktails to a dram of pepper punched whiskey, there is something for everyone.

Before I head back home, I also visited Common Man Coffee Roaster that is super close by the hotel as well. Isn't that great because all the nice cafes and restaurants are very nearby :) 
If you happen to visit Singapore, you can consider staying at this cute little boutique hotel. 
Till next time, Singapore.
