    We went there one Wednesday afternoon. We were the first customers and just ordered drinks and so we were served right away. The waiters were courteous.

    The ambience is great. The design of the whole place is exotic, intricate...very Moroccan, of course. The sofas/seats are amazing, sexy and comfortable. I love the lights and lamps too.

    Also, if you're into shisha's or hookah, this is the great place to have it. Try the strawberry one.

    We like this place and we will definitely come back.

      This is a good place to rest, enjoy the sun, be cozy next to the pool and sip a nice cold drink.

      My husband and I went there Thursday afternoon. We ordered drinks after another and they took them to the poolside where we're busy getting some tan. It's not busy so we were happy with the fast service.

      They have a nice DJ booth above the pool bar but I totally don't remember what kind of music they're playing (maybe it's not interesting so I forgot it?)

      The place is for guests only i.e., everyone who wants to stay and swim at the pool should order something. They have several toilets and shower rooms which ofcourse, are for customers only.

      And I'd rather swim at Cafe Del Mar's small, shallow pool than the beach in front. The view of the big tankers at the beach is ugly. I wish they just dock somewhere else.

      This place is a little expensive though. If you are tempted to stay in one of their loungers in the sand or the comfortable 'bed' inside take note that you should spend a minimum of hundred bucks more even though you spent a lot already munching that special menu they have.

      Must try food: Paella.

        Riding the MRT is like being an extra in a storybook or probably a film. Or I could be the lead character for other people.

        I've seen how a young guy became very angry towards a man who must be in his 40s or 50s. Apparently, the young guy was talking to someone on the phone and the older man made a comment about the young guy's way of talking. The young guy turned red and screamed 'he can talk however he likes to.' The older man couldn't say anything.

        Another experience, I was heading home from work. I accidentally leaned over a woman's hand holding the grab pole. I wasn't able to say sorry because she just pushed me so hard that the thought of saying sorry just flew away. I was humiliated and angry at the same time.

        The experience is endless. I've mastered how to sneak my little body into the crowded train. I blocked out once. I, once in a while, still smell durian in the train. I might be one of the few people who hates durian. Its smell is so strong, I start to sneeze. And when I sneeze, it will be followed by a dozen and dozen of sneeze that people will just go away from me. I was happy to see a notice that durians aren't allowed...but there's no fine if you take one in. I've seen a man fall asleep and snored. And that inspired me to never sleep in the train. I might snore too. Other times, some people are playing loud music from their phones. Sadly, I never enjoyed a single song I heard. I could be in the middle of the train and feel that I am in different parts of the world because I am surrounded with people all speaking different languages. Everyday in the train is a brand new story.

        MRT is very convenient and dependable. But if it's peak hour and I am near the City Hall area and I am very tired and wants to sit down while in the train heading north, I would take the train towards Marina Bay first. Then, start the journey from Marina Bay with few other people. Another nice thing about MRT is that there are malls in most stations!

        Btw, my favourite stations are Dover and Expo. :)

        4. Bangkok

        When I landed at the Suvarnabhumi International airport, I instantly felt dizzy (well, I easily get dizzy). It was a hassle to ride an airport bus after flying and be taken to another part of the airport for immigation and luggage pick up. Then, after a long walk towards the arrival hall, I was greeted with a bunch of people who may be hotel staff, travel agents, etc. and most of them are holding placards/papers with names written on them. It took several minutes before I found our travel guide.

        It's my first time in Bangkok. I envisioned the place as colourful, relaxing, comfortable just as what I've seen on travel magazines - colourful market in a river, grinning couple on top of an elephant, amazing golden temples, fun night markets. Our travel guide led us towards the hotel car which meant we have to walk across a busy, smokey road. Once in the car, we did a little introduction to the driver then head to our hotel. I was excited so even though I was feeling a little dizzy already, I just stared around the roads and checked the big signboards. My dizziness got bad as I tried hard to read or recognize what's written on signboards and street signs...I couldn't even recognize a single Thai letter!

        The next day, I realized that Bangkok is hot, noisy and that the traffic jam is crazy all the time. But I chose to enjoy every moment I was there.

        1. Monday, it's a yellow shirt day. Almost everyone is wearing a yellow shirt with the King's crest.
        2. Food is amazing! It was so nice I ordered extra rice and an extra spicy seafood.
        3. Shopping in Bangkok (cheap and fun).
        4. Golden temple...busy.
        5. Took some time to walk around a street where there are a lot of massage places and bars and realized ladyboys are way beautiful than any other women and that includes myself. They said if a woman is so pretty, she could be a he.
        6. I asked a taxi driver to take us to a decent bar or pub. We were thrilled that he took us to a place with lots of bars. I remember one with a huge Oscar trophy outside its building. A live band was playing and so we ordered a few drinks. After almost half an hour, another set of band are about to play. The leader of the band is a ladyboy and he has a lot of dancers..young girl dancers wearing little piece of clothe. Then, two old Caucasian men sat to the table next to ours. They were smiling at us and saying Hi. It was creepy. We knew right away we have to leave the place.
        7. It made me sad seeing kids selling flowers on the street. I wish they would do something about this issue.
        8. The internatinal backpacking community of Khao San Road is like a whole new place.
        9. Excellent tattoo shops.
        10. The colourful taxis. I like the screaming pink ones.
        11. Thai people's love to the King.

        Bangkok has a lot of stuff to offer...a lot of nice places to visit...a lot of things to discover...and might even make us more grateful of what we have at the moment.

          I must say the marketing department of Nihon Mura did a great job for coming up with the 99 cents sushi. This is the very reason we tried this place. We can go to different Japanese restaurants but we were intrigued with their 99 cents sushi so even though we live quite far from Revenue House, we felt the urge to come and visit this place.

          The place is busy and we have to wait for a little while. The staff are friendly although most of them were busy and we can see them walking around bringing orders and all to everyone. I felt a little dizzy. So if you're planning to eat here and you hate people walking around you, you may want to request a secluded place away from the walkway near the conveyor belt.

          I love california maki so I took three plates from the conveyor belt. They are not excatly nicer than the makis I tried before but it's just 99cents/plate, so no need to worry.

          My personal favourites from Nihon Mura are the grilled cherry tomatoes wrapped in bacon and iced green tea.

          The tomatoes burst in your mouth which adds some excitement to the grilled bacon. The sweet iced green tea is served in a tall glass. Nice.

          If you haven't been here, it's worth a try.
