Baby spa & the authentic Japanese FISH lunch
★2014/08/17 01:15

Yeah, I was back in Malaysia for a 3 weeks holiday staying at my brother’s house face3_kao07.gif
Yappi was with us for 4 days only, and back for work after that.

Haneda - departure to MalaysiaDeparting from Haneda from 23:30 almost midnight..

Arrived to Malaysia happily
Arriving safely and happily after 7 hours flight face3_kao07.gif

Arrived to Malaysia happilyIt was good traveling on a night flight with a toddler ya_hikouki01.gif Coz they will most probably sleep through the night face_self-conscious_smile.gif
Little-big-boss dozed off once he was on the plane and woke up around 1 or 2 hours before arrival h_shine.gif


Anyway, we have met a lot of friends.
Among them, we so happened to have one who runs a baby spa – Hippopo Baby Spa & Wellness face3_kao25.gif w_5_typhoon.gif
We never knew and we were very curious face2_happy02.gif
I didn’t know that baby spa actually is already quite well known in Asia.. like what I’ve heard, there were already above 2000 baby spa running in China face3_kao23.gif

And so, our friends, a married couple, who were so kind to have invited us for a try out with Little-big-boss face_self-conscious_smile.gifh_heart04.gif

Hippopo Baby Spa - the play cornerThe play corner for the babies to warm up face_self-conscious_smile.gif

We were like, wow.. what a luxurious space for babies.. face2_catface.gif

Hippopo Baby Spa - enjoying the baby for the first timeI can say, this is Little-big-boss very first experience on a baby spa face3_kao09.gif
Luckily we were taking baby swimming course back in Japan, which made him go down the water more comfortably in the spa h_heart04.gif

Hippopo Baby SpaThe Baby Spa face3_kao25.gifw_5_typhoon.gif
There were 2 big tubs (for 6 months to 3 years old) and erm..I think 2 small tubs (for baby below 6 months old).

Hippopo Baby Spa - enjoying the spaHe was happy h_heart09.gif

Hippopo Baby Spa - happy in a bubbly spaYeah, very happy during the bath h_heart08.gif

Hippopo Baby Spa - after the spa ready for a baby massageWhile relaxing after the bath, it was time for a baby massage..

Hippopo Baby Spa - not willing to be massaged..As expected, he is not used to and doesn’t like and not willing to let anyone he doesn’t know to interfere his life all this while kinda.. how can it be okay of having the staff to massage him..face3_kao20.gifh_sweat02.gif(→my doubt earlier)

Baby is supposed to lie down while enjoying the sensation of massaging by the professional there, but since Little-big-boss was not willing to,  we still tried a little while I hold him up..

Yeah, it didn’t work out face3_kao20.gif

I think he might thought that the staffs there were doctors face3_kao20.gif
he hates docs.. haha


After the baby spa, we head to another friend’s place for lunch.

Uokatsu - all about fish This friend is a Japanese who married a Malaysian-Chinese wife and stayed in Malaysia.
They opened a Japanese restaurant which specialize in FISH dishes an_fish.gif UOKATSU an_fish.gif

Happily eating something from homeland, Japan ( ̄▽ ̄)Happy eating food that he recognizedface_self-conscious_smile.gifh_heart04.gif

Well, we really really had a wonderful and fulfilling day and it was so great to have wonderful friends like them h_heart04.gif
Grateful thanks to:

This time was with Yappi and his friends h_heart08.gif

This park is really really big that in order to get to our lunch destination, the open field, we had to walk like more than 30 minutes in the park itself..
There were a few entrance for the park and the entrance that we entered was the furthest one..face3_kao18.gif

Walking towards the open fieldPretty challenging when you have a baby to look after while carrying all the stuffs and while you have a husband who went ahead so far away to take picturesface2_wobbly.gif
*Nah, just at some pointsface2_bleah.gif He will be back to help face2_lovely.gif

Time to go for the animals in the zoo!

This is a very small zoo park which is free of charge, just nice for little babies to explore without being too exhausted h_notes.gif

Though small, though they do not have elephants, giraffes, gorillas, lions, tigers, all those big animals..
they have zebra, monkeys, red pandas, donkey, flamingos, and all the smaller animals an_c_chick.gifan_capricornus.gifan_p_buta.gifan_taurus.gifan_usagi.gifan_c_hiyoko.gifan_capricornus.gifmark3_sign01.gif

Well, when the Sakura bloomed, it’s hanami-timep_sakura.gif
(Hanami = admire the Sakura, Sakura-viewing party, etc

I went for a few places for this hanami event with family and different friends.

First, on 28 March 2014, I went to Mitsuike Koen, a big park which that has 3 lakes inside located in Kanagawa prefecture with one of my mama-friend (friend with babies).

When I first arrived here, there were still no sakura blooming to be seen..face3_kao18.gif
I knew it was a bit too early but never thought that it would be like so.. so not even one to be seen from the entrance..face3_kao18.gifh_sweat02.gif

Oh yes! Spring in Japan = Sakura season!

Everywhere you go, you’d see Sakura p_sakura.gifp_sakura.gifp_sakura.gif

Imagine white pinkish tree in a garden! Doesn’t it makes you feel like a wonderland some may dream of? face_self-conscious_smile.gif

Pink sakuraThere are various types of Sakura. The very common one, the white pinkish sakura that you always see is called Someiyoshino (染井吉野). The roof of sakura in the 1st and 2nd pic is Someiyoshino and this type is always grown along at the side of a street or river shining all over face_shy.gifh_heart08.gif

Ooh, I’ve got something to continue which is totally has nothing to do with the sakura’s story above!

I found something very funny and ridiculous that I wanted to write it down here.
The latest Japanese language trend!!

This trend started this year and it’s a HIT on the internet in Japan.

They are words indicating when you are angry. The angrier you are, the funnier it goes..face3_kao20.gif

Angry L1 – Oko (came from the word “okoru (怒る)” which means angry
Angry L2 – Geki (very) Oko (angry)
Angry L3 – Geki (very) Oko (angry) Punpun (steam up) Maru
Angry L4 – Muka (frustrated) Chakka (set fire) Faiyaa (fire)
Angry L5 – Kamu Chakka (set fire) Inferunooooou (inferno)
Angry L6 – Geki (very) Oko (angry) Stikku (stick) Fainariariti (final reality) Punpun (steam up) Doriimu (dream)

And this is how you use them,

Oko na no?” (Are you angry?)
“My bicycle got stolen, Geki Oko Punpun Maru ٩(๑•ૅہ•๑)!!”

and so on..

Cute? face3_kao20.gif 





夫から最初に聞かされたんだけど、やっぱりくるってる~!と思った face3_kao17.gif

This is my last post for Singapore on this trip.

2 days at Geylang, a nostalgia place which I enjoyed quite much though this place not too popular among my friends icon:face3_kao17. All budget hotels gathered around Geylang icon:face3_kao06

Then, we had Megazip at Sentosa Island. That was great~icon:face_self-conscious_smile All the way from the mountain to the ocean icon:face_self-conscious_smile

Stayed 1 night at Marina Bay Sands hotel (the main purpose on this trip), mostly just for it’s infinity pool → the sky poolicon:mark3_sign01 
Had a romantic night icon:h_heart09 too at the sky park icon:face_shyicon:h_heart08

Overall, Singapore is a city with lightsicon:o_flair very happening and fun icon:face3_kao06

Day 3 of Singaporeicon:mark3_sign03 updates are so slow.. icon:face3_kao17

Anyway, in day 3 we transfered to Marina Bay Sands Hotel, which actually our main reason this time to Singapore icon:face3_kao07icon:h_shine – for it’s infinity panoramic city view sky poolicon:mark3_sign03icon:face3_kao09icon:h_kira01 

This hotel is known as a 5 stars hotel icon:w_7_star 

Marina Bay Sands - Hall

and I expected a more welcoming reception and a more luxurious lobby icon:face_shy

Never expected that a new, big known hotel lobby could be like a shopping mall full of people standing around talking loudly with no lounge or sofas visible for a rest..icon:face3_kao18 the atmosphere here is just not so right for what to be expected..

Marina Bay Sands - Lobby

A lil’ bit of disappointment here..

Anyhow, I was very much more expecting a great time at the pool thoughicon:mark3_sign03icon:face3_kao06

Once we stepped in to our room, I can’t believe that I spent quarter of the day just wow-ing and camwhoring around the room.. icon:face3_kao20
