I recently took a little break from work to explore more of Japan, the last two times I was there, I only went to Tokyo but this time around I will be visiting Kyoto and Osaka as well. I will do my best to upload as many detailed posts as possible.
The first morning there, we went to have breakfast at this famous fluffy pancake place name:
I’m not really a spa goer, I don’t enjoy having a stranger rubbing/ touching my body. However, my entire family went and I thought I would give it spa a try. The whole experience was pleasant but I can’t say that I love spa and would go again, I still don’t enjoy spa massage. Nonetheless, I had a wonderful time and the entire view was really calming. The spa located on mid of a mountain, where you get the view of the ocean while surrounded by greenery, it was breathtaking. The staff at the spa are very friendly, if you happen to visit Quy Nhon and stay at Avani Resort, you should definitely give this spa a go. They have the rose bath cleansing, which gives you the view right out the ocean, it is absolutely stunning.
I had such a good time at Quy Nhon, especially the adventure of climbing rocks at Eo Gio and look out into the ocean. It was difficult to walk, climb over rocks to get this far, I almost gave up but it was all worth it because now I’m looking at these images, I feel happy and grateful for the chance I got to see this view. I would strongly recommend you to visit this rocky beach if you happen to visit Quy Nhon, Vietnam. I heard from the locals, it is best to visit in the afternoon just before sunset, the view is supposedly stunning. I will be sure to do that next time I got a chance to visit Quy Nhon.
I wanted to have this up a while back, but I had to take my flight to Japan then, and have not gotten a chance to sit down and check on my blog since. I found myself something tonight, resting at the hotel to prepare for a full day out at Universal Studios Japan and exploring Osaka. Anyway, all the details is for future posts, now, let’s throwback to about 2 weeks ago when I was in white sandy beach with the sun shining above me. I was really surprised with myself for being able to wake up and catch sunrise three days in a row. It was my personal achievement, I did not feel tired once during the trip; I believe it’s because of the fresh air. The effort was worthwhile, I got to watch three beautiful sunrise and it was wonderful, nothing gives me quite a same feeling.
Upon my arrival and seeing the sun disappearing behind mountain range, while in front of me I can the waves hitting the white sandy beach. It was such a calming and freeing feelings, I was in that moment and nothing was bothering me then. No works in my mind, zero stress, I thought then I can’t think of the time when I was that relax; it was wonderful. As the sun was setting, I saw what left of the sun shine above the rock settlement on the beach and I just had to get some images there, now looking at this, it takes in right back to that moment.
Finally found a chance to take a summer vacation with my entire family and it was wonderful. It was exactly what I needed to free my mind from the day to day stress. This time we choose to vacation in Quy Nhon, which famous for its long-stretch white sandy beach. Yet it has not been heavily invested with resorts and touristy restaurants, which is something I quite like as I find the place more peaceful and relaxing with less people around. I chose to stay at Avani Quy Nhon Resort & Spa, which was distant way from the city so it was just sandy beach, mountain and the sea. I took tonnes of photos, which I will be posting in the next few days so watch out for coming posts.
Where did this year go??? Seriously, times just flew by, I have not gotten a chance to do anything and the year is already almost over, and haven’t got a chance to visit a beach. I’m in a desperate need for that summer tan, but since I cannot get that tan yet, I decided to bronze up my makeup look. I think summer is when you can either go for a bright colour lips makeup look or a complete nude. Today I decided to do a makeup look that I have wore throughout the entire month of June, especially the nude lips; it has been such a huge trend lately.
I love me some scented candles in the summer as much as I do during winter time. So it is without a doubt, I could not resist these lovely Yankee candles. They all smell amazing by the way, I fall in love with their scent from that very first sniff, which says a lot. They are all unique in their own ways, but Beach Walk have got to be my absolutely favourite out of the four. It remind me of a good summer vacation, walking on the beach, taking in a depth breath of fresh air and just relax.
If you love Nutella as much as I do then you would absolutely love this recipe by CupcakeJemma, it’s another recipe from her because I think she is absolutely amazing. Again I altered the amount of sugar to my personal preference. The cupcake is moist, full of chocolate, hazelnut in the cake and Nutella in the icing; there is no way that you not going to love the cupcake if you love having Nutella as a spread.
Go and head on over to JemmaCupcake YouTube channel to find the recipe! I’m sort of obssess with her at the moment.
I’ve always been a huge fan of rainbow cake, I love the fact that it looks simple on the outside but outburst with colours when cut open. Baking has been my way to clear my mind, escape, finding calmness in all that is crazy of works and life. I’ve been baking a lot of cupcakes lately and they all turned out great so I decided to attempt the biggest cake I’ve ever made. It took me almost 3 hours to complete but the result is so rewarding.
