What's more, Zouk resident DJs are in the house this time round, so what are you waiting for? The atmosphere is going to be great! 

Enjoy the Sights that Sentosa has to Offer with The Cable Car Sky Network

We have known of the existence of the cable cars as a mode of transport into Sentosa but now, there is a new Sentosa Line in place, the Singapore Cable Car Sky Network.

This new line is an extension of the existing Mount Faber cable car line. There are 3 cable car stations servicing the new Sentosa Line; the Merlion, Imbiah Lookout and Siloso Point Stations. So, if you are looking to travel from one point to another, there is another alternative besides the 
monorail. Yay!!!

With this new line available, guests travelling around Sentosa can explore the island conveniently from a bird's eye view and there's plenty to enjoy from up above. If you are heading to the western part of Siloso Beach, Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Hotel, Underwater World Singapore and Fort Siloso, then this line with benefit you greatly!

If you think that the view is good during the day, wait till you ride the cable car around Sentosa during the night. It is a sight to behold! For those who love to take photographs, the scenery from up there is spectacular! 

Mr S Iswaran, Minister (Prime Minister's Office) and Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade & Industry officially launched the new Sentosa line on Tuesday, 14th July.

Having rode the cable car myself, I can tell you that it's an experience you don't want to miss out on. It provides the best view of what Sentosa has to offer in that short amount of travelling time, you don't have to squeeze with the crowd on the monorail and you don't need to exhaust yourself under the hot sun. Think cable car the next time you think about how to get to Sentosa!

When you think about facials, what do you think of? For me, I visualise face masks being put on, various soothing lotions being rubbed on and my skin looking better after the treatment. How much of this is accurate? Find out by reading more on my experience at GLOMAX Aesthetics.

So how is the treatment process like? It begins with a consultation. For me, it was the typical areas that had more acne such as my forehead, cheeks and chin area, with cheeks being more congested. I was recommended the Luminous Detox Energie Care Treatment that was a duration of 90mins and costs $168. According to them, it is the ultimate skin purification process and the Diamond Microdermabrasion invigorates cellular renewal to treat clogged, pigmented and sallow skin.

The room where I had my facial treatment in

Ok, so what's next? The Sonic Cleansing machine was used on my face. It is this machine that has a suction kind of edge that basically hovered around my face and vibrated the dirt off my skin. With dead skin removed, my face felt much smoother. It may feel a little strange but there's no need to worry because it at most causes minor discomfort. There was quite some amount of dead skin removed for me and it's probably due to my lack of use of a scrub. Despite using cleanser, moisturiser and toner, I have yet to form the habit of using sunblock and scrubs. Earlier on in the year I was advised on the importance of sunscreen and today, I was once again told about it's use in preventing ageing skin. With that, I was ready for the next step: extraction.

I am pretty sure you guys will probably know what extraction involves. Basically, it is the process whereby the acne is squeezed out of their pores. A little painful but necessary. After the process, a high frequency machine is used to repair the open wounds to speed up my skin’s natural healing. All you will feel is this round, smooth, machine rolling over your face. It is designed with a customised cocktail of vitamins to refresh and strengthen the skin protective barrier, so that the skin immediately comes out looking clean. For me, I was given the green tea extract which serves the following purposes: anti-oxidant, whitening, anti-bacterial, lightening. The treatment ends off with a customised mask and in my case, I was given a charcoal mask for purposes of detoxifying.

Just a disclaimer that people don't look at their best immediately after facials because it takes time for the skin to recover and heal.

BUT... all that matters is how I feel like after treatment:

With trustworthy clinicians, you do not need to worry about outbreaks after the session and you can be certain that the condition of your skin will improve, with the right protective skincare products. Here at Glomax, you can step out of the clinic confidently knowing that your face has been well taken care of and that the pain that you have been put through during the extraction process is all worth it.

If you have read until here, you must be somewhat interested to have your face treated. I am sure most guys don't go for facials but why be the majority? If it is good for you, there is no harm trying. If you feel you want to try it out, here is an added incentive. For my readers, you can get the same treatment that I went for, for a special price of only $88. That's nearly 50% off the usual price. All you need to do is quote my name 'Samuel' when you make your appointment.

Explore Penang from the Comfort of G Hotel Kelawai

So ever since we booked our trip to Penang, we were pretty excited about it and the day finally arrived!

We were driven to G Hotel Kelawai and greeted warmly upon arrival. Even had some scoops of ice cream to welcome us and brighten up our day. Of course, we couldn't wait to check out our rooms!

For Deluxe Rooms, we were pretty satisfied with the size and layout of the room. Had that elegant look to it with the furniture decked out and nicely arranged. I even had an arm chair to rest in while I indulged in my book (yes, I brought a book, don't judge).

One of the first things I did when I entered my room was to pull the curtains aside and peek out. It was scenic and I wanted to take a selfie but... no correct guesses on how it turned out, my face was too dark and the background too bright.

The TV was big! Made a mental note to utilise it at some point during our stay and watched AXN on it for a short while during our third day.

The toilet had the towels and the necessary toiletries. I noted that they used Appelles toiletries which are eco-friendly. 

They also had a mini bar, coffee machine and what we Singaporeans can't live without, free Wi-Fi!

All in all, I would say that I was pleased with my room. The thing about hotel rooms is that if you are busy traveling, you tend to underutilise them and we wanted to spend time enjoying the comfort that G Hotel Kelawai offered.

Next up, our breakfast place! Spoon.

This is not the typical breakfast spread but here's a little of what to expect during meals.

As always, when there's an infinity pool available, you just have to check it out. Having seen the photographs in press releases, we were not disappointed one bit with what we saw.

Told myself that I would be back and swimming here. Just couldn't wait to take a dip and chill out in the pool. I came back on our last day and had the whole pool to myself, wohoo! Enjoy max.

If you think the view during the day is good, check out the view during the night. There's also a rooftop bar, Gravity available if you want to grab some drinks and have htht. 

We had a great view from the sky deck (the same level as the infinity pool) during the day and if you enjoy the night lights, you simply have to see it for yourself.

Next to the pool is the executive lounge and man were our tummies glad that we had access to this place. We frequented this place during the late afternoons for tea, so that we could munch on a little something before we head out for dinner. 

No one probably visits the hotel's gym on their stay overseas but we decided to take a look anyway. Simple as it looks, it has everything you need in there. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to gym otherwise I would have gladly tried out the weights. All that eating makes anyone feel guilty of not working out.

If you are wondering how accessible the hotel is, it is located right next to Gurney Plaza and Gurney  Paragon, making it super convenient if you want to shop. Also, one of the hop-on-hop-off bus stations is within proximity of the hotel, so if you intend to visit tourist attractions via this mode of transport, you don't need to worry about how to get back to G Hotel. 

We had a lovely stay at G Hotel Kelawai and would like to thank them for their warm hospitality.
