Finally, I'm blogging about my Japan trip!
I'll be posting my itinerary at the end of the entire post when I'm done, so do look out for it! :D
It's actually my first time planning an entire trip, so please pardon me if our planning isn't very efficient ok hahah!
For example, our first stop was Tokyo and we already booked our flight to arrive at the wrong airport (which was further) LOL!
Sean has never been to Japan before, and the last time I visited was yearsssss ago with my family, so I can't really remember how to travel around Japan either. So we're starting from a blank slate here.
day one - tokyo (shibuya station)
We arrived in the afternoon and after checking in Shibuya Tobu hotel (few minutes uphill from Shibuya Metro Station), our first meal was Ichiran ramen!
The hotel was spacious and clean.
I was told by countless people who've been to Japan before that Ichiran ramen is a must try.
True enough, one try and we're hooked!
Ichiran doesn't have other franchises in other parts of the world, so it's definitely worth travelling to Japan for :P
A few months back, I did my most painful facial treatment ever - Thermage.
I've read quite a bit about Thermage online, and I chose to get my treatment done at my usual facial clinic since I'm using their skincare products daily as well.
I was told that the most obvious results of the treatment would be seen about 3 months later, so I wanted to post some comparison photos and share the process.

Always wanted to visit the DC Super Heroes Cafe at MBS ever since a long time ago, and the previous time I went there it was at night (playing PokemonGO....) and it was closing so I'd only managed to buy their 3D ice creams.
This time we went early to check out their Limited Edition Wonder Woman themed dishes, drinks & desserts!
These days, experts say your hair is what really betrays your age.
Here's how to stay forever young — follicularly speaking.
Concerned about how my hair's really brittle these days due to my obsession with bleaching, and also some bumps from clogged follicles on my scalp recently, I went to TK TrichoKare at Serangoon NEX the other day to get my scalp checked.
Waiting at their comfortable treatment room with a lovely cup of tea for consultation :)
Spent a night over at Hotel Nuve Heritage for Sean's birthday! ^~^
Hotel NuVe Heritage is a boutique hotel in Singapore, located at 13 Purvis Street.
The hotel has a cafe at the lobby, and around the hotel you can find lots of places for yummy food within walkable distance that opens till really late at night if you're the type who loves supper! :P
We had supper at BBQ Box during our staycation!
Please don't be fooled by the cosy entrance of the hotel, it's actually surprisingly MASSIVE & SPACIOUS once you enter! :D
I picked the Explorer Suite for our stay! :)
Customised giant silver confetti balloon, black-white themed balloons & marble balloons from MistyDayDream to decorate the (already super fabulous) room!
The delivery man arrived earlier than we did to check in, so Danny from Hotel Nuve Heritage helped me to arrange for this! Thank you so much Danny! :D
Hi, this is my first video with Sean!
There are a lot of 'My Boyfriend Does My Make Up Challenge' on YouTube, so we filmed this randomly right before we went to work cause we were at this beautiful location (Hotel Nuve Heritage - Explorer Suite) with gorgeous natural lighting! :D
Sean is obviously not a morning person (worse than me) hahah what a pig xD

This year, it was a really last minute decision, and I was there with Peishi, Noah & Sean! ^~^

Finally managed to take time to visit Platform 1094, a Harry Potter/ magical inspired cafe in Singapore that will be sure to make any potterhead hyperventilate!
