Puffing Billy

Puffing Billy Steam Railway, Melbourne

One of the to go places in Melbourne would be the Puffing Billy, a century old steam train that runs from Belgrave, to Dandenong Ranges, and then Gembrook.

Going to Belgrave is easy and won’t take an hour via the metro train. We had a short nap before arriving at Belgrave! :)

The journey on Puffing Billy was extremely wonderful and nostalgic with beautiful scenery along the way. It was very relaxing while enjoying the breeze, greenery, waving at strangers, hearing the train whistle and taking lots of photos. Let the pictures do the talking! :)

Kiehl’s x Craig & Karl

This holiday, Kiehl’s is collaborating with Craig & Karl to design a special limited edition label that will adorn some of the brand’s most beloved customer favorites. The quirky design is inspired by the brand’s New York City spirit and the season of giving. The collection includes Creme de Corps, Ultra Facial Cream and Calendula Herbal Extract Toner which serves as unique and ready made gifts for family and friends.

BFF and I made a visit to their 13th and newest store at Metro Centrepoint, which reveals a “shop in a shop” concept unlike the traditional departmental store counter.

The interior of the store was neatly categorized in different sections. Here we have New to Kiehl’s for customers to peruse the latest products at one glance.

Followed by Customer Favorites where the best selling items are showcased here.

Not forgetting the lovely hunks, Men’s Favorites are also nicely laid out for the men to make their selection.

Not sure what to gift? The Giving Station allows you to pick the existing gift sets of create a gift of your own!

We had a little hands on session wrapping the gifts and designed our own keychain! :)

Don’t forget to check out the collection in stores! :)

A Bountiful Christmas Beckons at Park Hotel Group

Merry Christmas! :) Thanks to BFF, I had a great feasting session at Park Hotel Group! The hotel group has curated a series of activities, delicious menus, goodies and hampers to pamper their guests! If you are still undecided on where to go, look no further!

A pretty sight that greeted us when we entered the ballroom. How pretty and mood lifting! :)

Needless to say, BFF and I went straight for the seafood! From crabs to mussels to oysters, it was a delightful treat for the seafood lovers. The crabs and prawns were my favorite, which were very fresh and sweet! :D

Crab was the main highlight for the canapes and they were visually tempting and full of flavor.

And we have all the meats like honey ham, lamb, beef and chicken. They were all nicely roasted and still retains the juiciness.

The glorious looking dessert corner! Lots of mouth-watering Christmas cookies, log cakes, sweets and fruit cakes!

Apart from offering the buffet spread, the take-home goodies and hampers encompass a range of mouth-watering festive roasts and sweet treats like Orange-Maple Christmas Turkey, Roasted US Kurobuta Pork Loin, Meatloaf Pizzeria Style, Stuffed Turkey Breast, Santa’s Christmas Rainbow Cake, Philadelphia & Tahitian Vanilla Log Cake and Christmas Stollen with Confit Orange & Lemon.

Last but not least, a selfie with the BFF! :)
