Found a new hideout for ourselves and the pups!
I thought these places only exist in my dreams. What I would kill to have ‘em all.
Imagine, having dinner here every night. Under the stars, in the moonlight.
One day, some day.
I’ve officially hit the mid-twenties!
Can’t decide if the exclamation is a shoutout of joy or a gasp at the old age. Ever since the age of 10, I’ve had a love hate relationship with birthdays. As much as it is yet another excuse for celebration, reality hits that I’ve turned another year older, and soon I will be seeing grey hair and wrinkles. Superficial, I know.
This feeling hit me many years back. I realised once I turned 10, I had hit the two digit age and I was mulling over the fact that there was no turning back to being young. As much as it sounds immature now, I still can’t help but feel abit melancholic each time my birthday looms near.
Well, at least my celebration perked things up quite a bit. M booked a one night’s stay at Klapson’s The Boutique Hotel for my birthday. It was meant to be a quiet affair for just the two of us. Pretty relaxing for a change, I must say.
Had brunch at The Plains Cafe at Craig Road before checking in
Got down to doing some housekeeping on our own. The jacuzzi was filled with some leaves since it was in the open air area.
Must say we were quite disappointed with the jacuzzi. We spent a whole lot of time cleaning up the jacuzzin before we went in for a dip. After draining out the water, there was a million specks of black dirt around the sides of the jacuzzi. We were pretty grossed out that we were actally soaking in that dirt. Can’t believe we spend so much time just washing up that tub over and over again!
I know that jacuzzis aren’t suppose to have soap, but oh well..it made it more fun! Felt cleaner too haha
A whole lot of bubbly!
Our lunch! The room service food was exceptionally nice, maybe cos it was salty. Truffle fries and chicken wings.
We didn’t even once step out of the room for the whole stay there. Watched movie after movie that was showing on the hopelessly grainy television. Ordered in more food, soaked in the jacuzzi, and repeat.
Apart from a few other grouses we had, this staycation came at a good time to get away from our stress. Not sure if I would head back there for another stay though. Not really keen on bending over to do more jacuzzi cleaning, since age is catching up anyway. Heh
Till the next!
If you’re looking for a laid-back restaurant with good food, Barossa’s one of the places I would suggest. Located at Esplanade Mall, this restaurant is mostly al fresco seating. If you’re lucky enough, you get to enjoy live music from the Esplanade at night. Unfortunately for us, the hard metal/punk rock ( I can’t decide what it is, just extremely loud) music that night killed the mood. Not my kind of music, that’s all.
Calamaris; Garlic Fries; Prawn Paste Chicken
Birthday cake from the lovelies (: Thanks for the celebration!
Hopefully the next time we’re there, the live music would be much better.
It’s been a while since I had the mood to update what’s going on. I hope things will pick up soon anyway.
Nonetheless, some pics from the trip that was planned quite some time ago..We were invited to Azhar’s place at Sri Tiara (free lodging ftw!) so we just headed there for the weekend, while the rest stayed back to catch the Arsenal match.
As much as a quick getaway was a good breather, I hardly had a chance to catch a breath. We had to rush straight after work to the airport on a Friday night to catch our flight, and by the time we were in KL in the comforts of his place, it was almost 1am. And then rushing back on Sunday night, and reaching SG near midnight, before preparing for work the next day. It was quite tiring I must say.
The whole trip was basically just lazing, watching White Collar, and catching up on movies like 21 Jump street and more..
Saturday, we headed to the mall near his place for some casual Jap food. It was not too bad, but for the price we paid, I shan’t complain! Exchange rate was pretty damn good too. SGD 1=MYR 2.5!
One thing I like about Msia is that it has some character as compared to SG. Character as in some old heritage stuff that makes the bustling city still interesting. This Police mail box caught my attention!
We did some grocery shopping for breakfast and lunch the next day before heading back home to rest before dinner..
That was only half of what we ordered..we were so stuffed
Headed over to KLCC to laze abit..an obligatory tourist shot of the towers
Can’t wait for a proper holiday, but for now, let me get my life back in order
