VACATION Packing TIPS + ESSENTIALS

EXCUSE MY VPL...


ngày lễ = VACATION


IF you are planning for a short getaway to somewhere within the South East Asia region and also bank account friendly, I'd say go to Vietnam for a fuss proof holiday destination. 

WE felt it was time to head back to Vietnam so we booked ourselves a 5 days trip to Saigon. The whole trip [Flight + Hotel] cost approximately RM850/person. Haven't shared anything on our recent trip to Vietnam but be assured that it's coming your way.

ASIDE from being coffee tipsy, we did put some effort on how we dressed. Not being a self-proclaimed professional but deciding on what to wear on a holiday can be strategically challenging. Make the smart move and you'll "POP" in every single picture taken. Since its VIETNAM, I played with muted tones, tribal prints, beachy hair and fun footwear. doyoufeelthosepomspoms. 

QUICK TIPs before packing:
.01 Do some research on the destination. What colour scheme and tone most of the landmarks are.
.02 Explore google image to get an idea on the cultural aspect of your destination.
.03 Visit fashion websites for holiday outfit inspirations and style ideas. [StyleWe is a great one to check out!]
.04 Search latest hashtags on Instagram for updates or a glance on the real-life situation.
Aside from rolling our clothes and packing travel sized toiletries, there is more to learn when it comes to packing smart.
These are our vacation essentials:
. Kimono . Bikini . Shorts . Hat . Sunnies . Sandals .
 
 
 
Just if you're wondering why is that black pair of loafers in the mix, I've never travelled anywhere without a pair of statement kicks.
Airport essential. Checked!!

Nerd Travels . Bangkok Photodiary II


I heard the Candian Tuxedo is making a come back. Just incase you missed Bangkok Photodiary I, anyone who knows me in real life will know that I will not travel in shorts and a pair of slippers. 
Denim aren't the most travel friendly item space wise but if you are gonna re-wear it until it gets stained by Mustard juice or chocolate sauce, you bet it's well worth a spot in your luggage. 

To combat the heat, I went for light washed denim with ripped knees paired with single shoulder denim top that is also buffet dinner approved. To break the muted palette, I wore my trusty old Larsson & Jennings watch.


We had the lunch of our lifes at Petite Audrey Siam Center. Two page cover menu mainly focusing on vegetarian food got us yelling Hallelujah. Other than the friendly service which earned 2 extra pokemon points, white furniture accompanied by fresh flowers took this garden themed restauramt to the chicest level. Don't be fooled by the word 'Vegetarian'. Fettucine Cream of Truffle could easily be the BEST pasta I've had so far. Pasta Al Dente.

The cake was just fine. It wasn't groundbraking fabulous since I've tasted better Tiramisu else where and if you bake, you'll know that Tiramisu is a tough one to master. 


 

Took a short waffle break at Mr. Jones Orphange and woolala. Need I say more. Ordered a pot of Peppermint Tea to balance out the explosion of sweetness. It would be understatement to say :" It was delicious'.

Thin Waffles served with Fresh Strawberries, Sliced Bananas, Strawberry Sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream ฿ 180 (RM22)

Despite the strengthening currency, Bangkok still is one of my favourite city in South East Asia.
Looking forward to head back for food, coffee and muscle relaxing Thai massage.
Leaving to China next Monday and perhaps I should get back to packing.
