#TravelogueMalaysia: A Day to explore heritage @ Johor Bahru (JB)

After morning 🔆🔅 breakfast 🍽☕️ from Amari Hotel JB 🧡🏢(Do stay tune for her next stay vacation 🛌🛀🏻🚿 blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 ya), SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 & her writers gang 👫👭👬 have decided for a day to exploring the heritage of old town JB 🇲🇾

A mixed feeling 😃😌 while walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️down the memory lane of the old town here, why❓⁉️

Photo 29-01-2018, 11 09 13 AM.jpg

Some of the old shops are really well maintained👍🏻, including still operating the businesses as inherited, while some actually have transformed to modern faces 🏢… Her personal thought 💭 , it would be good 👍🏻 if all old buildings are maintained as its origin as possible though☺️

However, she also well received ☺️ that town evolution is unavoidable too…Hmm…Happy 😃 that old town JB is still not too bad in its heritage maintenance thus far. Bravo‼️👍🏻👏🏻

So, she was impressed 🤩 with 1️⃣ of the old business which stay from the olden days till now😲

Beaumax Oxygen with Aqua Oxygen Facial Treatment

Yeah! Finally got time to have her pampering time 😍

How❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 went to have a relax & revive facial treatment 😃

She has been warmly welcome by the pretty & polite beautician 🙋🏻named Yuki that morning ☀️🔆

Guess what❓❓

She has arrived early & even before the DEWS signature beauty boutique door 🚪opens 🤣😂

Hmm…perhaps she just too enthusiastic & can’t wait to have her me time to be pretty pretty 😘

Hmm…1st impression ~ A very pleasant & wide lobby of the boutique 😀

Yuki 🙋🏻served SiennyLovesDrawing to change to a pair of comfy home 🏡 slippers i.e. To treat herself as home for facial treatment here 😉

She enjoyed the hot flower 🌷🍃 tea served during her facial consultation 🗣👥

SiennyLovesDrawing has then opted to have a session of hydrating 💦💧treatment from DEWS Aqua boost solution to enhancing her dry skin 👍🏻

She then went in to change her cloth 👗& then get ready & prepared for her skin pampering moment 😍

This whole Beaumax Oxygen with Aqua Oxygen Facial Treatment consists a combination of following sessions ğŸ˜Ž

A relaxing head, face & shoulder massage💆

Hmm…So so comfy 😌 with the use of the cucumber 🥒 based massage gel

Love ❤️ the refreshing, smooth & pleasant smell 😍😘

Facial cleansing

The smooth cleasing feeling was good with the gentle facial massage too 🤗

Facial scrubbing

Really love ❤️ the gentle scrub, the seeds from the scrub were so fine & don’t feel the roughing scrub at all 👍🏻👏🏻

This helps to exfoliate dead skin cells & then improving the moisture retention capacity ✌🏻

Steaming & extraction

During this phase, a very relaxing ğŸ˜Ž hot steaming session to help open up our skin pores, so that it would be easier for the immediate next extraction session i.e. to clean the black head & white head, especially forehead & nose 👃🏻 areas

Yuki 🙋🏻was very gentle & she kept checking whether SiennyLovesDrawing was fine with her extraction skill, she worried may be pain & hurtful then ☺️

Salt water 💦 spraying

It was using the Beaumax Aqua Oxygen Jet, however no❌ injection 💉at all (in case you worry about injection as SiennyLovesDrawing)

Rest assured this is a painless session & it helps to normalise the irritated & stressed skin from extraction, sebum production & acne production 🙂

Serum spraying 

This session is the precise one as it heighly restoring skin elasticity boosting collagen production as well as penetrate deep into the skin’s surface to speed up the cell renewal process 👍🏻✌🏻

This session maybe a slightly painful (just slightly discomfort) due to the superb fine spraying of the thick serum to skin surface for better skin absorption 😌

Aloe Vera gel facial mask

A very refreshing & soothing moment, so relaxing…ğŸ˜ŽğŸ˜Œ

Don’t you fall a sleep 😴 💤during this session & snoring loud ya 🤣😂

Modelling mask

The ingredient consists of real Chrysanthemum 🌼 extract (was informed in Mandarin as 兰花菊) & she observed the flower petals before application by Yuki 🙋🏻

She realised that beautician’s hands 🖐🏻🖐🏻required a great care so that their customers enjoy their facial beauty care treatment with their direct hand touching on.

Bravo to Yuki 🙋🏻as her hands 🖐🏻🖐🏻are smooth & SiennyLovesDrawing has enjoyed her facial treatmeant with her hands 👍🏻

“Special thank you 🙏to you, Yuki, you have been very helpful & accommodating throughout my facial session. You took awesome photos for me too. Love ❤️ ” 😃

Wow! Her skin brighter from dull & shine restored after this approximately 1 hour & 45 mins pampering session 😍

Of course highly recommended & don’t miss your 1st trial of RM160/ session ya ✌🏻👏🏻

Ha…Ha…What to repair on SiennyLovesDrawing’s face❓😉

After the cleansing, SiennyLovesDrawing uses this gel as facial mask. She applies a slightly thicker layer on her face & then enjoy a short beauty nap 😴

Named as repair gel because it serves a special function to soother the face after aesthetic facial treatment from any beauty clinics 🏩 or at DEWS

SiennyLovesDrawing has decided to use this gel during her stay vacation 🏝🏖🏢not because she has just done any aesthetic facial treatment, however she knew that she needs to pamper her skin after a beach visit under a hot sunny day ☀️🌊

The cucumber 🥒extract in this gel will definitely helps! True enough, SiennyLovesDrawing didn’t experienced any sun burn ☀️or skin irritation throughout her beach holiday 🏖🏝🌊

Holidays ğŸ˜Žalso meaning to enjoy good foods 🍽 too! Moreover, SiennyLovesDrawing was at the food paradise of Malaysia 🇲🇾 ~ Penang!❗️😋👍🏻

However, most of the time she was in the hotel 🏢 & served with breakfast, lunch & dinner. She only went out for some of her Penang craving i.e. Duck egg🥚fried kuey teow, Penang laksa🥘, one of her favourite egg 🍳peanut 🥜 porridge (it is a small little stall that she found out during her shopping 🛒🛍walks) etc.

So, what else did SiennyLovesDrawing do during her stay vacation❓

Hmm…body massage, henna art on her arm 💪🏻, reading 📖 , lazying on the bed, eating, snacking etc…

Yeah! SiennyLovesDrawing really energise to continue her busy busy life again after this wonderful 360 3️⃣6️⃣0️⃣ total wellness stay vacation❗️👩🏻😍
