A day at Stresa..

Stresa is a town on the shores of Lake Maggiore. We went there thinking that we would take a nice stroll along the lakeside and enjoy the amazing views of the lake and also the 3 nearby islands (the Borromean Islands) which I heard is a must-go when in Stresa.

No doubt there're beautiful lakeside views when we were there but it's a super hot and sunny day. Too hot and sunny that we didn't really feel like walking, and we decided to chill at the first cafe we saw just beside the lake. -.-'''

We spent quite some time at the cafe because we totally dun feel like walking. Hahaha.. But there're still some photos of the views lah..

That's one of the Borromean Island

People can actually walk down to the lakeside and swim in the lake..

Like this guy.. He's too strong, he's swimming against the current and was quite far away from the shore.. ^0^ 

Since it was so hot and we didn't felt like walking, we gave the Borromean Islands a miss. Maybe we'll come back again next time when the weather is cooler. So, we chose to take the cable car up Mount Mottarone to see really nice views.

Chairlift to go to the summit of Mount Mottarone

On the summit of Mount Mottarone, there's this ride called the Alpyland. It's an adrenaline ride on the top of the mountains with great views. The experience was really awesome!!

I took a video while I was on the ride. Okay, I was quite noisy and I didn't really have the mood to admire the scenery as I was just busy screaming away. I know, it's dur! -.-'''

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…
