christmas at keio plaza hotel tokyo
What would you say to staying in a 45-year-old grand dame situated right in the heart of Tokyo city? Well, together with my family, I had the pleasure of spending couple of nights in Tokyo’s first skyscraper hotel serving the global community since June 5, 1971 – the Keio Plaza Hotel ( 京王プラザホテル )!

Consisting of 2 towers, Keio Plaza Hotel offers both leisure and business travellers a choice of 1,437 rooms, boasting 16 restaurants and 9 bars, 38 banquet rooms and 3 wedding chapels, an outdoor sky pool, fitness room, and even a clinic, all under one roof!

Just like a grandeur standing tall, the 47-floor hotel is just a stone’s throw away from Tokyo’s most accessible transport hub, the Shinjuku Bus Station and Shinjuku Train Station. Flamboyant chandeliers adorned with dazzling Christmas tree illuminated with hues of blue greeted us at the hotel’s main lobby upon our arrival; it was certainly a welcoming sight! Isn’t it such an eye-candy?

walt disney california disneyland donald duck
I have always been a Disney girl as a child and had embarked on a solo trip to Disneyland Resort in California in 1985 at the age of 20. Oh yes, I travelled all the way to USA just to meet my favourite Disney characters! Disney is a place where dreams come true! You can imagine the excitement and back then, it was a big thing for someone to travel so far alone unlike these days. Thereafter, I visited Hong Kong Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland on numerous occasions, and not forgetting Disneyland Paris. Now I am left with Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Shanghai Disney Resort, and of course the Aulani Disney Resort and Spa in Hawaii to complete my Disney therapy!

My last visit to Tokyo DisneySea was probably more than a decade ago when it first opened. So I was really looking forward to this trip, and certainly thrilled to be part of the “ Tokyo DisneySea 15th Anniversary: The Year of Wishes ” celebration!

Located adjacent to the popular Tokyo Disneyland Park on the shores of Tokyo Bay, DisneySea is themed to the myths and legends of the sea. The Park features seven distinct themed ports, and it is designed as a world filled with adventure, romantic stories, discovery, and fun, where adventure and imagination set sail.

Get Shiny Hair with L'Oreal Colours and Redken Treatments!

celebrity lifestyle influencer reviews singapore hair salons
Do not let your age shows through your hair! Make sure you give your crowning glory the best treatments they deserve. While frequent dyeing and bleaching can damage your hair, just touching up your roots not only save you some money but also helps patch up those unsightly contrasts.

far east plaza clover hair salon promotion
Touch up those grey hairs or when your highlights start growing out, and hair that stick out like a broomstick is a no-no so get yourself a good hair treatment too. If you are not sure whether it is time to touch up or colour your hair, follow this rule of thumb - colour your hair after every 3 touch ups.

It was one of those regular visits to Clover Hair Boutique to have my hair done - hair cut, touch up roots, and have an intensive hair treatment. I love how Daniel ( Assistant Manager ) takes care of my hair.
