With the juick pack, there is no reason to bring with us the bulky power bank when we head out.

Yunomori Onsen & Spa Singapore Opening

The authentic Japanese Onsen is here in Singapore.

Now we can enjoy a holistic retreat from the hectic nature of urban life right in the heart of the city.

Introducing the No.1 Onsen in South East Asia, Yunomori Onsen & Spa, the first authentic onsen in Singapore.

Yunomori Onsen & Spa is located at Kallang Wave Mall, just follow the signage and you will be able to find your way to the spa.

Here I was, arriving at Yunomori Onsen & Spa. The ambiance was totally zen, a modern yet authentic structure that made us immediately feel soothing and calm.

Before we stepped into the Yunomori, we have to remove our shoes and placed them in the lockers right beside the waiting area.

Let's have a tour around Yunomori Onsen & Spa.

The patthway led us to the first stop - spa.
The spa corner is split into 2 sections, the men and women section. A path of retreat is paved through connection with various forms of onsen pools, including hot and cold baths, sauna, steams and showers.

A small towel will be provided for you to bring it to onsen pools, sauna and steam.

Disposable underwear is also provided but optional for you to wear it. 
You can enter the pool naked if you want to. In Japan, people went in to the onsen pool naked. In Singapore, we are still a conservative country. Hence, disposable underwear is provided but those who feel uncomfortable to be naked with the presence of others.

The staff demonstrated to us the correct way of wearing Yukata. The end product should be left over right.
Wore this before heading to onsen pools.

This lockers were for us to store our belongings and hang our clothes.

Another thing, we are not allowed to bring any camera or mobile phone to the bath and osen pools. This is because people can go in naked to the pools, so not nice to have photos taken inside when there are people using the facilities. To protect the privacy, no photo are allowed to be taken.

A section for dressing.
The dressing table was provided for us to dry up our hair or apply makeup after enjoying the pampering session. So thoughtful, hair dryer, body lotion, big and small mirror was provided.

Here is the section where we shower before entering the osen pool.
Shower gel and shampoo are provided at the side of each cubicle.

We were awed by the sight of the different onsen baths available, we felt like jumping into the pool right away. There is a total of 6 different baths available at Yunomori Onsen & Spa. Each bath provides a relaxing and therapeutic experience as well as its own set of benefits.

Gel Nails at CL'athena Nails Salotto

Finally my exam was over, time for me to let my hair down and relax.
Exam period is always a stressful period for me. For the past 2 weeks, I spent all my free time at home studying and rejected all meetup with friends. It's really a terrible and no life period for me. Now that exam was over, it's time to reward myself with a pampering treatment.

Doing gel nails has always been in one of my 'to do' lists. Ever since I was being introduced to gel nails (last year), I enjoyed doing it because the gel nails are long lasting and does not chip off easily. The pretty nails can last for more than a month for me. Everyday, I will admire my pretty nails. The only downside is that it cannot be remove by the normal nail polish removal, one has to go back to the salon for soak off.

It has been awhile since I last have my gel manicure done, it's time to get my nails coloured again.

This time round, I have my pretty gel nails done at CL'athena Nails Salotto. Thanks Jasmine for introducing the nail salon to me.

CL'athena Nails Salotto is situated at The Bencoolen, a mere 5 minutes walk away from Bugis MRT station, right beside OG. The salon is located near the exit door of The Bencoolen.  Before entering, remember to take off your shoes and place it outside the salon.

Finally I was at the salon, so excited for my session. 
Can't wait to see the end result.

CL'athena has a classic interior that made me feel at ease upon entering. The floral wall paper matched with the red and white furniture.

CL'athena Nails Salotto has many creative nail art designs. Whether you want cute or mature designs, CL'athena has designs that cater to all. There are so many designs that I wanted to try but I already have a design in mind before I came down, shall stick to that.

If you like to have 3D nail arts, you can add on these bling bling crystals to your nails.

Took a seat at the red sofa while waiting for my manicurist, Min, to get the materials ready for the delightful treats for the overworked hands. I did lots of writing for the past four days practicing the exercise questions.

So many nail colours to choose from.
I decided to go with my all-time favourite black.

Min was working on filing my nails and removed the dead skins.

While doing my nails, I watched Hurry Up, Brother - 奔跑吧兄弟 that was played on the TV. So relaxing.

Leave my hands to the friendly and professional manicurist while enjoying the service.

Only 2 nails need to be painted with black base while the other 3 fingers will be based on nail art.
So happy, Min said that I have long nail plate. Perfect to be a nail model.

Min was patiently working on my nails.
Are you ready to see the end result after 1h 45 min of hard work?


Wow, look at the beautiful nails Min has done for me. Every fingernail was delicately drawn by her. I was really impressed and satisfied with the nail art done.

Instead of the usual dull black design that I always do, I go for a chic nail art design this time round. I love it so much that I can't take my eyes off my hands.

Placing my fingers under the UV light to dry up the top coat.

The last step was applying hand cream after completion of nails.

All done. 
You can get for the same design as mine for $99. Gelish nail at $40 and nail art at $55. The cost of nail art will depend on the complexity of the design . 

Check out the price of services offered at CL'athena Nails Salotto.
