Biweekly Favourites

Hello there, it's time for another Biweekly Favourites! I thought I was not going to update it on time with all the Chinese New Year busy-ness and stuffs, I was surprised that I could actually still keep it up! So far so good :). 

Check out my favourites for the past two weeks!

Favourite Quote:

A great reminder for myself, for playing different roles in many fields. I always find it very struggling with jobs, study, piano practice, blogging and even house chores. I couldn't split myself like Naruto and do so many at one time. I get the inspirations from this quote, "discipline" is the key. 

Favourite Article:

This is an article for memorization, the whole topic is about how to secure our memorizations. I find it very helpful to me. Even though it's for musicians especially pianists cause we've tons of music to be memorized, but I guess it's helpful for those who're studying or trying to improve their memory too.

Favourite Snack:

To be honest, I think no one will ever resists this Once A Year CNY snacks. Pineapple tarts and peanut biscuits are my favourite! I've gained some weights from this, well it happens every year. :(

Favourite Drink:

Influenced by Xiang, this Chrystathemum Tea is my favourite! It's not as healthy but it's still better than soft drinks, least it's less sugar, and no preservatives.

Favourite Hair Product:

I've been using quite a lot of dry shampoo for the past month, when the weather started to turn to broiling hot! Sometimes I sweat more than usual so dry shampoo is my rescue. I'll still shampoo off at the end of the day because I don't like the feeling of hair product sticking on my scalp. 

Favourite Food:

Well it's not exactly my favourite food cause pork isn't my thing. Xiang and I had our Valentine's Day lunch at Ante, and he ordered this pork steak. He was so excited over the amazing taste of this pork steak and kept on asking who recommended me this restaurant. I had only 1 bite it's very juicy and meaty taste hahaha! Well it somehow taste like beef steak if I've to say. 

Xiang's verdit: It's better than most of the regular beef steak; tender, juicy and chewy! 

Favourite YouTube Video:

Watched quite a few of organization and cleaning video to get some inspirations and tips for spring cleaning before Chinese New year, and this is my favourite one!

Favourite Music:

That's all for today's favourites, may the new year brings you prosperity, joy, health and wealth! ♥♥

Amarin Resort Chiang Rai - More Than Just A Budget Hotel

Since our stay in Chiang Rai is very short, we picked our hotel stay with a lower budget. After days of research and reading reviews in agoda web (the only website I love reading hotel review!), I finally chose this hotel - Amarin Resort.

In my opinion, I think Amarin Resort is between a regular hotel and resort, not exactly a hotel, not exactly a resort.

Its location is considered a little isolated, and hard to search with GPS. It looked like residence houses from the outside. 

Ample of parking space!

Where we parked our rented car

Love the tranquility of how the rooms are surrounded by trees

The reception counter

The hotel lobby

I love the concept of Amarin Resort! Their cottage-style room give some extra privacy with the small distance between houses. Not as crowded as in the hotels and we get more space for ourselves. 

Xiang opening the door. 

Tons of pics of his because he wasn't willing to be a photographer of mine! :P Well see the bench outside each rooms, very thoughtful. Perfect to chill in the morning/ evening but sadly we didn't have the time with our less than 24-hour schedule.

The Room:

Very cozy and spacious

The reason why I picked this is the cleanliness and big space of the room. Many of the reviews from agoda mentioned the room is clean, cozy and quiet. In fact, most of the reviews are "there are only tress and rooms", but that is more than enough for me. 

Cozy bed

The comfort level is way beyond my expectation for the price we've paid! I'm more than satisfied. :)

The snack area

Immediately bought snacks and cup noodles from convenient store because we try not to spend extra for food in the hotel room. Thailand snacks and instant noodles are irresistible!

Two complimentary drinking water

Tea & Coffee

The room is very spacious (32 s.q.m.) ! 

Bathroom is simple. No bath tub, floor is a little slippery after shower in the shower area and the toilet bowl is too low. Not too suitable for elderly. 

The only weird thing is the wardrobe, it's in the bathroom! Things provided are bath robe, a small safety box, 

and room slipper.

Our stay comes with the complimentary breakfast.

Those are all the foods provided


Tea & Coffee


Very basic breakfast with limited choice

1. Cheap
- we booked via Asia Travel at the price of RM 122.11 with complimentary breakfast, tax inclusive (MYR currency wasn't good during Oct/Nov 2015). 

2. Spacious

3. Clean, comfortable bed and quiet

4. Free wifi
- internet speed wasn't stable

1. Location isn't great for those travellers who're not driving

2. Breakfast choice is very limited

3. No swimming pool and facilities like gym etc.
