To Bring?… or Not?

In less than 2 weeks I will be flying off to C.U.B.A. for a week.  not 5-day “week”… an entire 7-day week”!  So Uber-Uber-Uber excited!!!! …. o Shit just suddenly realized that I’ll be back the thursday before Thanksgiving.  Well, I knew that.. but completely forgot about the whole Thanksgiving dinner issue.  S.H.I.T.

oh well, I’ll worry about it later.  Right now, I have to worry about the trip.

I haven’t been to any tropical resort destinations.  As a Hong Kong-nese we went to Thailand, Singapore as the Asian Mexico, but that was LONG ago!  Don’t even remember what it was really like…. (except the Thailand pineapple fried rice… mmm….) I have no idea what to bring! What to wear!  The number 1 fear for most people when travelling is being ill prepared.  No, there’s no stats for that.  But since it’s true for me, must be for everyone else too.  We are going to Manzanillo, Cuba, a less developed and poorer part of the country.  Simple necessities will be expensive, and difficult to obtain.

I know there are some simple necessities:

Clothes: 

  1. Swim suit (3)
  2. Shorts/skirts (4-5)
  3. Flip Flops (1)
  4. Flats/Sandal Flats (2)
  5. Summer Dress (2)
  6. Flowy evening sexy dress (2)
  7. Straw Hat
  8. Sunglasses
  9. Under garments
  10. Sweater
  11. Simple Accessories (want some earthy bangles and necklaces)

Other misc:

  1. ALL toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, louffa, floss)
  2. Make up
  3. Curling iron
  4. Adapter plug
  5. Bug Repellent
  6. Hair Spray
  7. Tylenol & simple first aid
  8. Camera & charger
  9. Hair Brush
  10. Sunscreen

 I know, vanity items took up most of the list.  That’s why I need your help to think of little things that I might need.  Also, are there any good island fashion tips? What are some good styles to wear three? Something simple, appropriate yet sexy?

Here are some looks I like:

Keepin’ it So Fresh and So Clean

14957070

It all started with a conversation with a client regarding steak houses:  He enjoys The Keg, I prefer Outback.  I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to take a drive to Niagara Falls to go to the only Outback in Ontario *tear*tear* for their fresh salmon, homemade honey mustard dressing and fresh calamari.

As we drove down it was crazy rain-sunny weather.  We saw a total of 8 raindows.  Absolutely crazy!!  Maybe we’ll win the lottery or something.

We had dinner before we checked-in because Outback closed at 10pm.  Marc ran into an old friend of his who is now the GM of that Outback.  No discounts were offered.  Boo.  The meal was pretty damn yummy, but there were changes and autistic-side of me dislike changes.  They jacked the prices up like crazy too.  We ate $96 worth of food which normally would’ve cost us $64.  So the surprise was Chocolate Strawberries.  I knew Marc wasn’t a huge fan of chocolate strawberries but it was this or rose petals on the bed for the same cost.  I’d rather something I could eat.

The strawberries without flash.  They were uber delicious! The top were pistashio covered, then almonds, GOLD Flakes and the bottom ones were white chocolate.  YUM. YUM Yum.  I devoured them all myself.

There was a jacuzzi tub in the room too! and it had a window that led to the bed how convenient is that?  We had fun in it…. …

We got dolled up and went to Dragon Fly Night Club.

OOO Feature DJ.. should’ve researched the DJ before going.  Paid $20 cover to simple melodic House Music.  It drove me nuts cuz he used beats from other DJs so I kept thinking it was a song I liked.. but no no no… just the same beat over and over again.  We got bored pretty quick, wasted our money and left.

Narcisstic Lainy loves mirrors~ and grand hotels have a lot of Mirrors.

It’s shitty that Marc isn’t crazy about taking loads of Pic.  Maybe he needs a reason fo taking pics, he needs to start a blog. Haha… I hate asking him to take pics of me.  And when I do.. I get angry cuz he doesn’t take good Pics.

It was 1:30 am and I jumped right back into the jacuzzi tub.  Might as well take advantage of it while we got it.

Marc had more less-blogable pics on his phone.  This soak was cut short cuz of different urges~ ya..

Good Night.
