Bratislava, Slovakia

We rushed a short half-day trip to Bratislava from Vienna so that we're able to step foot in another country. Hahaha.

We took a train from Vienna Sudtirolerplatz Train station to Bratislava Main Train station. The train journey was around an hour. We could see a difference between Bratislava and Vienna, Vienna was really more well-developed than Bratislava.





Slovakia joined the Eurozone in year 2009 and they were using Euros as their currency when we went. So it made things a lot easier for us.

From the Bratislava Train station, we took a bus to the city center and joined the free walking tour. If you're gonna be at Bratislava for a few days, it's good to join the walking tour first because the guide would provide useful information such as traditional Slovak food to try, restaurants at which part of the Old Town were the more expensive ones, and some other interesting things to do or see in Bratislava. If you're interest, here's the website for the free walking tour.

Our walking tour guide

Look at the road sign.. 

It's this! It just popped out in the middle of a street in the Old Town.. Hahaha.

The guide told us that the coming weekend was the coronation weekend and the following day was a cosplay event where the people re-create the coronation of the king! A pity that we were only at Bratislava for half a day and totally missed that.

Bus tour in Bratislava.. Cute..

Bratislava Old Town 

Old Town gate

The Plaque of witch hunting.. "In commemoration of the first witch burnt to death in Bratislava".. 

At the far end of the picture stands the Bratislava Castle. A pity that we didn't have time to go up. The guide told us that we could see 3 countries from the castle, Hungary, Austria and Slovakia. But other than the views, there's nothing much in the castle, so dun have to waste money on the entrance fee. Heehee. (In case you would like to know, there's another castle called the Devin Castle. But it's not near the Old Town, it's around 30 minutes bus ride from the Old Town to Devin Castle. It's the ruins of a old castle and you could see views of the Danube river from the Devin Castle.)

The Blue Church.. Was informed that this was a very popular church in Bratislava and many couples wanted to hold their wedding ceremony here.. 

Despite the main door of the Blue Church was facing this -.- This was the communist style building..


After the 2.5 hours free walking tour, it's almost time for us to catch a train back to Vienna.. As we gotta catch another train from Vienna to our next destination, Prague. It's so rush.. -.- Okay, bad planning.

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…
