Quiet spacious, with towels, shampoos and shower gels prepared. If you need to use the hair dryer, its upon request. Hence, you gotta call the reception to deliver one to your room. I love the rainshower.

There is in-room wi-fi but my advise will be get yourself disconnected. Enjoy the calm and quiet place. Me? I love to be at peace. Nonetheless, get yourself a social media detox.

DoubleTree by Hilton JB – Executive Suite

Spending quality weekends turn out to be pretty important to me. It got upgraded to a priority since I started working and I realised that I’ve been slaving too hard. Sometimes, I need to ask myself why am I doing this to myself?! To kick off the brand new year, I’ve officiated it with a weekend staycation at DoubleTree by Hilton at Johor Bahru, usually known asĀ DoubleTree by Hilton JB.

Here is how its like after braving and survivingĀ the crowd to cross the causeway from Singapore. It can be real mad but hey, let’s just look on the bright side. The idea of checking-in into an executive suite with the girlfriends ease all the sorrows. *nods head* Yes to weekends like this!

I got drenched in the last Chingay. Rainy season too this year, but I got the chance to check out the backstage instead.

Wong & Sim Dental Surgery – Teeth Whitening

#NotSponsored

I can’t kick start the day without a cup of coffee in the morning and having said that, that’s how my “gigi kuning“derived. “Gigi kuning”means yellowish teeth in Malay. Its sad how my friend kept teasing me “gigi kuning“each time he sees me.

 photo IMG_4796_zpsewwu1cyb.jpg

So, this is what happened before the idea kicks in to have my set of teeth whitened. I have been wearing my permanent retainers for more than 5 years after I got my braces removed. Yup, I used to wear braces.Ā Lazy bums like me, I’ll opt for permanent retainers, which are glued behind my teeth. One fine day, the glue decided to wear off and I got freakingly panicked having all the ‘what if’ popping in my head. I extracted four beautiful teeth for the sake of orthodontic and I must not have the pain go to waste! Being me, I’m picky in every way and that includes the dentist, which I believe everyone is. Having the service paid I don’t think anyone of us wants to be nag by the dentist for not taking good care of your oral health. My orthodontist was one and … I never see him again after I removed my braces šŸ™‚ Anyway, having that happened to me, the only thing that struck my mind was “Hot Doc”. Haha … what “Hot Doc”? I have this blogger friend long, long time ago, and she is my only dentist friend I can remember that point of time. Without hesitation, I texted her and described to her my situation, throwing Ā some bimbotic questions at her (no worries, she can take it) and placed my appointment immediately. Being abroad, I need to endure the uneasiness until I return to Penang. Ā Wong & Sim Dental Surgery fixed it for me and all I can say is they have done a great job! They had eliminated the fear I have for dentist. šŸ˜€

Months after I decided to kiss my “gigi kuning“goodbye. Since Wong & Sim Dental Surgery has became my staple go-to dentists, hence, I am back for them to have teeth whitening done.

 photo IMG_4775_zpsypbvf4mz.jpg photo IMG_4778_zpspytwlqnm.jpg

Took me about 2 hours of painless session to complete three cycles of whitening.

… and am super satisfied with the after effect of the teeth whitening.Ā  photo IMG_5609_zpsxtrguqhq.jpg
