I have been neglecting this space because I've too many travel backlogs that I do not know where to begin!! I have 3 weeks of Europe and now Kyoto and Osaka to blog. Europe kind of scares me cause it's so so many days but I really want to pen it down. After all, it's my first time to Europe & it's definitely going to be the only time I will be going to some of these places.

Anyway, if you have been following me on Instagram, I have been very very prompt and efficient there hahahaha!! Please follow me HERE if you haven't. :P I just got back from Japan, it was a trip with my Grandmother, Gugu Julie and cousin Yu Xin! It is my first time travelling with Gugu & Xin and not only second time with Ah ma. The last time we travelled was when I was in primary school; that is eons ago. I hope to travel with her yearly if time permits. And have all her 8 other grandchildren come together! 

This post will just be a summary of the trip. Give me a little more time to do detailed postings please! Meanwhile, you can read my detailed Tokyo posts first! :D So we spent most of our days in Japan in Kyoto. 

Started the first day having lunch and shopping at Kyoto's Nishiki Arcade Market! Lunch was Sooooooo good, Ichiran Ramen. If you have tried it, you would agree with me it's one of your best or even your best ramen ever!!

I had nice, volumised curls for most of the days this trip. All thanks to BaByLiss Pro! It gave me these curls and waves within minutes. I spent only 15 minutes to attain this hair do. All I needed to do is separate my hair into small parts. Then, I clip it using BaByliss. BaByliss will suck in my hair and magic works in there!!

After the beeps, I release and the curls are there instantaneously! I am never going to use any other curler cause it takes me too much time! Twirling and heating, twirling and heating over a curling wand is painful after you use BaByliss for once.
