A Must-Visit Spot in Ho Chi Minh City: Bitexco Saigon Skydeck & The World of Heineken

It wasn’t my first visit to Ho Chi Minh City, so I didn’t have an exact itinerary this time. Instead, I just tried to wing it when I was there. And that’s when I decided to stop by Bitexco Financial Tower after strolling around District 1 on my first day in the city.

To be fair, I started late at around 1 PM on my first day. And since I didn’t have a fixed itinerary about what I had to do or visit, I decided to just go to some coffee shop and some cafe. Of course, I had ca phe sua da, because ca phe sua da is life in Vietnam. 😛

I wandered around the area until around 3 PM, I decided to just go to Bitexco Financial Tower. Bitexco Saigon Skydeck seems to be one of the places on the must-visit list in Ho Chi Minh City. But if I gotta be honest with you, in the beginning, I wasn’t really interested in visiting the place.

I always thought that it was the kind of place that is overhyped and probably overpriced too. I didn’t even do any research about the entrance fee in advance. I went go-show for this, and I’m glad I did.

The Best Luggage for Your Travel Companion: Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage VS NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on

As I stated in my short profile on the sidebar of my blog, I usually add on checked-in baggage whenever I travel. Apart from back when I worked as a flight attendant, the only time I traveled with carry-on luggage was a couple of years ago when I went to Singapore for Arsenal’s pre-season game on International Champion Cup.

However, I still have a few cabin luggage that I occasionally use for a short getaway. It doesn’t matter that I still end up putting it on the checked-in baggage on the flight.

The point is to at least have cabin luggage, in case I have no additional budget to add the baggage for a flight like my short Singapore trip when I was broke but wanted to go for the sake of football.

And today, I’m going to talk about two cabin-sized luggage that could be your consideration for your new travel companion. Those two that I will talk about in this post is the review between Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage and NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on.

So, between the two, which one is better?

Novia Hotel Saigon: A Unique, Affordable (Love) Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City

Hi everyone! 🙂

For those who follow me on Instagram, you may have already watched one of my Instastories about this hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. The hotel that intrigued me prior to booking it, with an exceptional welcome greeting when I got there, only to be surprised when I arrived in the hotel room.

And if you happened to be one of those people who asked me to spill the tea about the hotel, here’s the answer: it’s Novia Hotel.

A likely love hotel where you could actually spend some time to fulfill your fantasy, because they have a lot of themed rooms. From something as innocent as Hello Kitty and Doraemon, to some sex fantasy like BDSM. 😛

So, what kind of room did I get and how was my stay there?! Well, I’ll write the review here. So let’s see!

Review: Vietnam Airlines Flight from Kuala Lumpur to Ho Chi Minh City (VN 674)

So, just a couple of hours ago I already wrote this very post for like 1000 words until I clicked save draft, got an error message, only to find out that neither the 1000 words nor the 4 photos I uploaded were saved. It was such a buzzkill, especially since I’m genuinely on the writing mood after weeks of traveling!

For those who follow my blog, you may notice that the last few recent blog posts, most of them are either guest posts or sponsored. But now that I’m back home, I will start updating my blog with my Indochina trip journey. Mind you, this has been a journey full of ups and downs so stay tuned for the update! 😐

And this time, I’m gonna share with you my experience of flying with Vietnam Airlines for the first time. After having a short layover and staying at Bary Inn Hotel close to KLIA, I flew directly from Kuala Lumpur to Ho Chi Minh City with the airlines using VN 674 flight. So, how was my experience?!

Review and Hit-or-Miss: Herborist Olive Series

It’s been a while since the last time I posted something in the beauty section of this blog. Nothing personal, it’s just I’ve come to realize that I may come across “suck” as a beauty blogger, so it really discouraged me to write something related to beauty products. Ironically though, some of my beauty posts rank fairly high so I suppose it’s worth another try to write some more.

This time, I’ll talk about one of the well-known Indonesian beauty brands that you may find in some souvenir shops in Bali: Herborist.

Yep, if you got any chance to travel around Bali and stop by some souvenir shops there, you could easily find some beauty products from body lotion, bath salt and even body scrubs from various brands. Herborist is one of them.

Other than Herborist, you’d also find other brands like Bali Ratih, Bali Alus, and many other different brands that might attract your lust to pamper yourself.
