Weekend Trip to Malaysia (Day 4)

Time flies…I’m going back to Tokyo today….

I’ll miss the Club Lounge and Malaysian Food.

I was looking at the hotel restaurants’ promotion flyer at the room and it gave me a craving of Char Kway Teow.

I’m glad that the hotel served Char Kway Teow for breakfast today! Yeah!

I enhanced my Nasi Lamak with sunny side up egg and chicken curry. fufufu

I was introduced to Malaysian delicacy today: Malaysian Soft Boiled Egg with Kaya Butter Toast.

Kaya is coconut spread.

We add soya sauce and pepper to soft boiled egg and dip Kaya toast.

It’s nice to have it with egg york! Yammy!

I didn’t have much time after breakfast.

It’s time to head for the airport. Oh No!

Sayonara Traders Hotel…. it’s a nice hotel to stay in.

It has a nice view of Twin Tower, nice Bar, spa and service!

I’ll be back one day; perhaps, When I decide to have another Honeymoon Vacation with my BFF!

I reached to the airport…. quickly checked in and we had our drinks at the Old Town White Coffee.

Drinks are nice but I didn’t want to finish my drink.

I went in 15 mins before my boarding time because I wasn’t ready to go.

I wasn’t ready but I had to force myself.

I walked through till my seat.

That’s how the time was tight. hahaha

My seat is consider as an Aisle Seat because my desk is inside, next to the window and my seat is at the Aisle side though that is only seat.

Sayonara Kuala Lumpur; Sayonara Malaysia.

I read ELLE Japan and continued watching the movie where I left it on the way to Kuala Lumpur: the Avengers Endgame.

I’m not an Avengers fan, but enjoyed the movie.

Perhaps. I should try other Avengers series.

I had a nice Japanese lunch by Zipangu, Shangri La Hotel.

I start watching Japanese movie – Kingdom – but I could not finish it.

It is interesting movie so I should find a way to watch the rest.

I should check NETFLIX, Amazon Prime Video and JCOM On-Demand (cable TV) for the availability of the movie.

In between, I also enjoyed in-flight shopping.

This is ANA limited edition of a collection of Hakuhodo Cosmetics Brush in Sakura design.

These brushes are brushes that I use and a carrying case is convenient for travel and even daily use.

I ended my weekend trip to Malaysia by safely landed at the Haneda Airport.

The trip was short, but quality was very high!

It was definitely worth going!

Weekend Trip to Malaysia (Day 3)

We lazily woke up late in the morning.

We had to rush to go up for the breakfast.

Or shall I calm it brunch…?

I should exercise because I’ve been eating very well.

I wanted to swim at the pool of Sky Bar where we enjoyed drinks and music last night.

I selfishly occupIed the Twin Tower view. fufufu

After relaxing my body with water, we went to the SPA for 120 mins Spa Treatment: Blissful Renewal.

The menu includes Aromatherapy Foot Ritual, Aromatherapy Massage, Clarifying Facial and Herbal Tea.

We started with drinking herbal tea.

We selected the aroma oil; I selected Oolong for energizing (Lavender, Lime and Oolong Tea).

We moved to a couple room to start our Spa.

I enjoyed it very much though I don’t remember much because I slept well during the treatment.

Nonetheless, my body is totally relaxed and I feel fresh now!

It’s time for cocktail and dinner so we went straight to the Lounge.

Since my body is relaxed, drinks made me feeling even better. hahaha

My BFF made me a killer drink: coffee chocolate and whisky.

It’s her husband’s recipe and it’s nicely Chocolatey.

I regret that I forgot to take a photo.

It’s a hot drink, looks like a mug of coffee.

Now it’s time to roll over on the bed!

This is my favorite moment with BFF.

Weekend Trip to Malaysia (Day 2)

I checked in at the Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

It’s located nearby KLCC Shopping Mall and it has a nice pool bar if we decide to go out of the room.

Since my flight arrived at 5:30 am, I arrived the hotel earlier than normal check in time which is 2:00 pm.

The hotel receptionist is nice allowing us to start using the Club Lounge.

The Lounge has a nice Twin Tower view.

We had our breakfast at the lounge overlooking Twin Tower.

I had my Nasi Lamak and Tose there.

This is how I enhanced my Nasi Lamak.

I added extra beef sausage and brisk and ordered a sunny side up egg from the kitchen.

Tose

My room was ready earlier after finishing my breakfast.

I’ve requested the Twin Tower view and I got a nice view from the room.

After taking a short nap, we went up to the lounge again for a high tea.

And continued for cocktail and dinner. hahaha

It’s getting dark and Twin Tower started to look better and better in the dark.

We decided to take a look of Sky Bar by going up one floor.

This is my favorite bar in a town.

After enjoying its atmosphere, chit chatting, music and drinks at the Sky Bar, we continued chatting in the room overlooking the Twin Tower from the room until we fell sleep.

This how I love to spend my weekend get away with BFF!!!

Trip to Kyoto (Day 1)

I had sushi at Sushi Train Kantaro at Tokyo Station before departing for Kyoto.

I can take a plate freely from sushi train or order through the digital order system.

When it’s ready, it will arrive on the truck above.

We had many sushi.

Now I’m ready to depart for Kyoto by Shinkansen.

I had my dessert, seasonal ice cream/mango ice cream, and coffee, on the Shinkansen.

Typhoon 6 is approaching; therefore, there is no sign of Mt. Fuji today.

I’m glad that I’ve safely arrived Kyoto without any delay.

I like Japanese traditional things and started shopping at Kyoto Station: Kyoto Souvenir Shop Iwai.

Finally, I checked in at our usual hotel in Kyoto, Kyoto Century Hotel and went out for shopping at JR Kyoto Isetan, Kyoto Station.

I know I should shop in Tokyo because no much of difference.

However, when I’m in Tokyo, I always have something to do and I could not find time for no plan shopping.

Usually. the department store welcomes us with cosmetics.

I love the colour that was available last year – one of Les 4 Ombrés series.

I’ve been hunting for it or similar colour and I learned that popular cosmetics can run out fast.

True enough I get one product that is only one left.

I’ve got samples for Lifting!

I shall try them!

I continued shopping for clothes.

I had so much fun shopping and window shopping.

The store closed at 8 pm so we had no choice but stop shopping.

We had Kyoto cuisine at Manju, Underground Shopping Area Porta, Kyoto Station.

Kyoto Craft Beer

And Kyoto Seasonal Set.

We enjoyed a slow walk back to hotel after dinner by looking at Kyoto Iconic Buildings.

Kyoto Station, Central Exit.

Kyoto Tower

I love visiting Kyoto and I never get board!

Reception Hosted by the Society of Japan Aerospace Companies

I was invited to the annual reception hosted by the Society of Japanese Aerospace Companies at ANA Intercontinental Hotel Tokyo (Akasaka, Tokyo) on 31 May 2019.

I networked with Japanese Aerospace industrial players and I enjoyed talking to them.

I enjoyed talking so much that I was unable to eat nice food served by the hotel.

I don’t know what I missed out. hahaha

Trip to Australia (Day 5)

It’s going to be the last day in Australia. Sob sob sob.

Going down for breakfast and I wish I could stay longer.

We started Melbourne City Sightseeing.

I was surrounded by great nature so this is a rehabilitation progress to return to hectic city Tokyo. hahaha

We walked and took tram to visit iconic places in Melbourne.

Administrative district area: Old Treasury Building.

Next to it is new Treasury Bldg.

Parliament House with Real Australian Flag – aborigine colour.

Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Garden.

Royal Exhibition Building is Australia’s first UNESCO site.

The garden is opened to people and animals.

Trees are wrapped by metal sheets to protect trees from possum.

Melbourne is generous to people.

We took free area tram to go places.

Flinders Street Station

These clocks state train departure time.

It’s a large station.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

There is an interesting signal; symbols are wearing skirt – women!

Go Women!

We shopped at Queen Victoria Market.

Few buildings are connected and sold many fresh and interesting products.

There is one building for household and sundry goods.

The atmosphere is like a night market in Asia.

I had a Long Black and Flat White at Market Lane.

I need to tell my name and barista can write my name correctly without asking me for spelling.

I was impressed!

I bought chocolates at Koko Black, known as Australian Godiva; very nice.

I love coffee so I bought some coffee at Mc Ivers.

These are really good shopping!

There are many more tempting products but I cannot bring back all…

Honey

Spice

ETC.

We departed Queen Victoria Market for lunch.

We had a fish & chips at Holiday Inn.

We drove about one hour to reach to winery Domaine Chandon.

This winery is family of Moët Chandon.

We had a little tasting for 4 different sparkling wines.

Lastly, we can ask for one full glass of our choice.

I asked for unique red grape sparkling wine which is only available at this winery.

There is another unique sparkling wine available at this winery: iced wine sparkling wine.

I bought few bottles each for home.

After tasting nice, we had one last dinner in Australia.

I asked for a beer and I thought the size is not fair comparing to a wine.

Food was nice and so as conversation with your mates.

Then we went to our last sightseeing point: EUREKA SKYDECK.

We walked through a glass cubical that control people on the outside terrace, we can observe the city as if we were a bird overlooking from the sky.

Now we completed all sightseeing in Melbourne.

It’s time to go back to Tokyo.

After completing last minutes shopping at the airport duty free stores, I spent at the Marhaba Lounge till departure.

Trip to Australia (Day 4)

According to the travel itinerary, we have free time till noon to depart for Melbourne and this free time supposed to be the time allocated for third challenge to climb Ayers Rock.

Since all seven of us who wanted to climb Ayers Rock managed to climb previous day, we decided to have a relaxing morning.

I’m glad I went yesterday by using my pocket money.

True enough, the gate was closed in the morning due to the strong wind.

I woke up at 8 am and went down to breakfast at 9 am.

I had Aborigine’s special omelette, using their herbs.

We departed hotel at noon for airport.

Oh I have to introduce unique Aborigine’s dot paint which was hanged at my hotel room.

We took two flights: Ayers Rock – Sydney and Sydney – Melbourne.

Ayers Rock – Sydney

Sayonara Ayers Rock!

Arigato for laughing memories!

This inflight meal became my lunch.

Sydney – Melbourne

Inflight snack, dip and crackers, goes well with red wine. Hummm

We arrived Melbourne on time.

We had a good look of Park Hotel Melbourne Airport where we stayed on the first night.

Tonight we are going to stay at hotel located in city center: Stanford Plaza Melbourne.

Our transport is cute: typical Ausie transportation that has luggage compartment.

We reached hotel and my friend was waiting for me!

We had dinner together; we had so much to update each other.

We continued talking at my room.

The room was just nice; there is a living/dining room with a kitchen.

There is a door to separate from bed room section for Mom to take a bath and rest.

We chatted for hours but never enough.

I’m thankful to her to come up to my hotel at night.

XOXO
