USA (Part 1) - Salt Lake City

The first stop of our USA trip is Salt Lake City. It's not the usual place that a tourist would go and many probably did not hear of this place before. We were there because my boyfriend was there for a conference and I am meeting him there to start our trip.

Even though it's just a small peaceful town, we loved this place. It was a nice sub-urban town, peaceful, tranquil, quiet, not touristy, and with some views of mountains around the town.

Very big and well-organised supermarket


We can across an interesting ice cream shop when we were at Salt Lake City. It's Nitro Freeze! They used liquid nitrogen to turn the liquid into ice cream!

Transformation in process.. Full of mist.. So Cool!

Ta-da! Strawberry flavoured nitro freeze! By the way, this was the small cup, the portion was so big that both of us couldn't finish it -.- Maybe we're just lousy.


I was at Salt Lake City for 2 days to enjoy this peaceful town which I had never experienced before. There's no way I could find such tranquility in Singapore, and this really got me thinking. I yearned for such peaceful, friendly, laid-back, relax place. I seriously hate the stressful, busy, crowded, tiring life in Singapore. It's so small and full of people that it's crowded at every single corner. There's zero chance that one would be able to find a peaceful, laid-back, relaxed spot in Singapore.


Okay, enough of my complains. After the 2 days in Salt Lake City, we continued on to Las Vegas! Woohoo!

My Favourite Salon: Govin Hair @ KSL City Mall

Do you have the same problem as me? Want to dye, perm, rebond or do treatment for your hair but after looking at the price of the established hair salon in Singapore you just wanna shake head and walk away from the salon.

Lucky for me, I found a good, cheaper hair salon with excellent service and experience just across the Straits! At KSL City Mall at JB!


I had gone thrice and I was very happy with my every experience there!

My first and third time there was for hair and scalp treatment and they were really good! The scalp massage was so comfortable, I literally could fell asleep while they worked on my hair! The most special experience was during the wait at the hair wash area. They provided aroma therapy there by dripping some lavender essential oil into the hot water and I nearly slept.

My second time there was to colour and cut my hair. Oh my! Their hair colour has no ammonia smell at all and I love it! Previously, whenever I colour my hair at other hair salons, the colouring has …

Mucota Omega Rebonding at Focus Hairdressing

I initially wanted to try out volume rebonding at some Korean hair salon in Singapore but the price was really expensive, around $350 for my hair length and I was told that the effect was just like soft rebonding, except that it gives the hair more volume. For my hair length, the hairstylist usually will recommend me to perm the ends to have the romantic Korean feel. But I know I will be lazy to maintain the curls. So I dropped the idea. 

I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.

I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 …

Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment at Creme Hairdressing

It has been a long time since I last did treatment and color to my hair. It's to a stage where I already cannot stand the frizziness, dryness, ugly color of my unkempt hair.



I was thinking of rebonding my hair to straighten my anyhow curl fringe and to solve the frizzy hair problem, but I was afraid that my hair will be too flat and look unnatural. I researched online and came across Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment. After some research, i realised the price of this hair treatment charged by some salon for my hair length could go up to $200+ to $300, and I definitely do not feel like spending this amount of money just for the hair treatment.

While surfing on Groupon one day, i saw this.


$108 for Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment for any hair length. I bought it immediately and arranged for an appointment. Over the phone, the hairdresser told me that the time required for this treatment is around 3 hours.

The lady who attended to me was Celine, she was from Taiwan. She was quite nice and gentle…
