My first time to spend the new year abroad. It feels different because I expect more fireworks like Manila in the Philippines but I shouldn’t also compare and I wanted to see the fireworks closer so we book a buffet dinner for 2000 Baht in Furama hotel because it’s in rooftop of the hotel, Furama Hotel has a small elevator (lol) the first time to try that small elevator, it’s cute (hmmm). The setup and theme were beautiful, girls were so polite and look pretty in their gown, dinner was great, it taste so fresh, they have a good music band, they have raffle games every 1 hour and the price is Free lunch buffet (not bad), right? Before the countdown, they distribute small stuff to make the sound for a new year. The expectation of the fireworks VS reality. There are no fireworks in Furama Hotel where I spent my new year eve. However, fireworks and lanterns in Old City and other areas were amazing even it was too short. I’m gonna share a short video of my New Year’s eve. How about your new years eve? What do you think about it? Share it with me below!

I think the best coffee shops only you can find in Chiang Mai. The laidback nature of northern Thailand capital ensures a steady flow of customers who are quite happy to sit back and enjoy a great cup of coffee while soaking up the true nature of Chiang Mai. I love many different types of cafés in Chiang Mai; especially in the Nimman area, everywhere you go there are cute, cozy, fantastic coffee shops. The beans sourced from all over the world to local teak houses selling coffee sourced direct from the family farm – I have tried some of those and present the very best of them here. Of course, many of Chiang Mai’s best coffee shops also have brunch menus and homemade cakes, or that food so you can fill up for the day or treat yourself to something sweet while working or relaxing with a cup of coffee, free wifi is a big bonus.

Do you struggle to get out of your bed in the morning because it’s so warm and cozy? Or maybe because you feel tired? Or do you need coffee immediately in order to get moving?
I understand not everyone is a morning person, with just a few tricks you can improve your morning routines and be productive the whole day.
1. DITCH YOUR SMARTPHONE
Many people look at their smartphones within the first 5 minutes after waking up. Break that routine. Looking at the screen of your phone right away increases your stress level.
2. DO SOME SIMPLE STRETCH
A few gentle stretches before and after getting out of bed will activate your body and get your blood flowing for the day.
3. LET THE SUNLIGHT IN
Open the curtains and windows to get some light: light sends a signal to your brain that it’s time to be awake and stop producing melatonin, a sleep-regulating hormone. Get a deep breath and feel the morning fresh air.
4. TAKE A MINUTE
Give yourself a quiet minute in the morning. Drinking water in the morning keeps your body hydrated as the day starts, helps promote a sustained flow of blood to your skin and releases toxins from your system. Enjoy those minutes to drink your tea or coffee, think about what you need to do that day, or even write down your plan or things to do for today. Read some positive quotes. Nothing will make your day better than starting it with a positive mindset!
5. HAVE A GOOD BREAKFAST
Never have time for a tasty breakfast? According to Addidas runtastic, 31% of males and females between the age of 35 and 54 are breakfast skippers. How about getting up just 15 or 20 minutes earlier? A nutritious breakfast gives you energy and maintains more stable glucose responses during the afternoon and evening. Simple and easy breakfast like Banana Toast with peanut butter, avocado toast with egg, Oatmeal or Chia seeds with some berries. I use to have 1 boil egg and half of the banana when I don’t have much time and sometimes just get half a slice of apple with yogurt. Having Coffee every morning it’s like gasoline in my body to keep me moving and it gives me a lot of energy. My day is not complete without a coffee.
6. LISTEN A MUSIC
Music has always garnished healing strengths and can bring you in a good mood. A happy-good playlist would have you ready to kick your workday’s butt.
Now you are ready for the whole day, you have the energy to focus on your passion will not only make you feel better or make you happy, but your hard work will pay you off on the end.
