Hong Kong Series: Hong Kong Disneyland!

Is there such a thing as too old for Disneyland? 

I hope not! Celebrating my 23rd in Disneyland Hong Kong

I celebrated my 23rd birthday on the themed streets of Disneyland Hong Kong. I do not know if it had something o do with my birthday, but albeit smaller, I found Disneyland Hong Kong no less magical than its Western counterparts.

The ride to Disneyland was a Mickey Mouse-inspired train. Like any other teaser, it was tastefully made to excite you for what's to come. From the classic Mickey-shaped windows and handrails to the plush, velvet sofas, the ride was an integral part of the Disney experience that one should not miss.

It was my first time to celebrate my birthday away from home, and I kind of felt sad sentimental at first. Once I got to the resort however, I totally forgot about being a total cheeseball. It wasn't my first time to visit a Disney themed park, but all three occasions still felt like a first. 

Disneyland is divided into four themed lands: Main Street USA, AdventureLand, TomorrowLand and Fantasyland. At the entrance, the boyfriend and I grabbed a copy of the park map and sat on a nearby bench to plan the day so as to accommodate ALL shows and attractions. Yes, I was  that relentless! The park is really small and missing something is close to sinning against yourself for hard earned money not well spent.

These tickets are 350 HKD each, but I got them cheaper!

The Great Asian Secrets Giveaway!

Nearly two years ago, I joined the St. Luke's Medical Center family with no beauty routines, no Holy Grail products to swear by and no cosmetic gunk on my face. Admittedly, I used to think that all these jazzabouts on beauty and looking good are well, shallow. Halfway through my training as a staff nurse however, we were wheeled off to free Image Lessons from MayK by our HR personnel. They said they wanted to breed (yes, kind of like dogs) a different kind of nurse for the Global City branch. For those of you who do not know what I'm talking about, St. Luke's has this newly opened world class hospital in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. (Do visit if you have the time!)

I thought I was there to get a job, not a job +  a makeover!
