Country within a country (Part 1): Monaco

We first went up to Monaco-ville, the old town of Monaco, and grab some food first.. Haha.. We were hungry.. We trusted Tripadvisor and seached for No.1 in Monaco Ville..


The price was a bit on the expensive end.. This was the lunch price, dinner's more expensive..


Hubby ordered the Branda Cujun De Stockfish A Ma Fason.. Dunno what that means, we only know the word 'fish'. We had expected it to be a fillet of grilled fish but it came in this form. The fish was mixed with mash potatoes.. It was just normal. Given the price we paid, we thought it was overpriced.

I ordered Coutre Filet De Boeuf "Black Angus" Rucola/Parmesan Again, I dunno what that means but it's black angus so I ordered. Hahaha.. And it was pretty good! The beef was tender and yummy, served with the salad and cheese, I felt not so sinful eating it.. Hahaha..


After having lunch, it's time to walk around Monaco-ville and we arrived at a place where we could enjoy the views of Monaco bay.






Palace of the prince of Monaco

Some church we saw on Monaco..


Musee Oceanographique.. It's listed as No.1 things to do in Monaco-ville on Tripadvisor and this was the long queue outside this attraction.. Seriously, this is the first time I saw such long queue for a museum or aquarium.. So we thought, it must be amazing!


Erm.. turned out there's nothing much inside. Showed some bones of oceanic animals.. Can't really remember what other things was exhibited as it was too crowded and we didn't enjoy ourselves there.

This was one of the more interesting facts I saw there. It showed how many people each type of animal/insect killed per year in the world. So it's telling us that sharks are the least harmful among these and I think the message that they wanna bring across is to stop killing/hunting sharks?

So many people in the aquarium.. Block our view..

Again.. so crowded..

We were quite bored there as it's no difference from any other aquariums we went before except for the exhibits of the bones of the ocean animals. But there's really good views from the Musee Oceanographic as it's built on the cliff of Monaco Bay.



Done with Monaco-ville and we proceed to Monte-Carlo, the Atas shopping area, casinos and a real exhibit of luxury cars.. I guess we're more interested in this than the Ocean museum..

No, we dunno that guy in the picture.. Just some random guy.. 抢镜头..

Cool number plate


This convertible Rolls Royce was openly showcased outside Hotel De Paris.. Okay.. "Shut up and take my money!" 



 Porsche side by side


Convertible Bentley

Mercedes Benz is small fry here..

We didn't go into the casinos because we were dressed quite 'lok kok' with slippers, shorts and top. Other than these luxury cars, we saw many rich people in Monte Carlo. I think they were rich people lah, because I saw them buy Chanel and Hermes bags without considering. They just grab and walk to the counter, machiam shopping at Pasar Malam. -.-

Okay, I totally get this..

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…
