I’m in Tucson, Arizona!

Good wife that I am, followed hubby to USA this week for his lawyer academy gathering with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. It’s held in Tucson, Arizona, at a pretty cool resort JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa.

Left on Thurs 9am and arrived on same day 5pm (no kidding, 20+ hours flight and only 7 hours in real time)…

Huge cacti right outside the hotel window. Couldn’t resist taking photo with it. 😀

Temperature right now is 3 degree Celsius. Brrr.

Walked around the grounds… there’s a golf course and a mountain park right outside the resort! May go check it out soon but for now, I’m sitting in Starbucks sipping on caramel frappe and blogging. 😉

The waffles for breakfast @ Signature Grill this morning was the most heavenly I’ve ever tasted. 😀 Never knew that strawberries and cream atop maple-smothered waffles can be that good.

Watched the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 on StarWorld HD and I simply adored Taylor Swift’s performance. She’s really a superstar… fell in love with her right there and then! 😀

The song she did “I Knew You Were Trouble” was a number from her latest album, Red. So catchy, I listened to it over and over again on my playlist. :p Swift writes most of her songs based on her past experiences – you can hear heartfelt emotions in her vocals~

Spent the day in the Hashani Spa in the resort. Apparently, some forums reviewed it as one of the best spas in USA. Frankly, I hardly have time to spa back at home so it’s a perfect chance to pamper myself thoroughly this time.

This is me, before the Hashani signature spa massage, looking all tensed and in need of what’s coming. 😉

After a relaxing 50 minutes, I didn’t want it to end. Didn’t realise my tired hands and feet needed such a break.

Hashani manicureThe Hashani manicure included a full manicure with hand spa (scrub, mask and massage). I tried on a bright red color of Shellac, a brand of gel nail polish made in USA.

Even got a souvenir from the spa to take back to the room with me– my own aromatic concoction of dried rose and chamomile, which is supposed to soothe and relax you further. Placed it on my pillow and knocked out for 4 whole hours straight.

Happy New Year, folks! Enjoy each and every day before the year is out again. 😉
