AVILLION 2009

This is an outdated post actually. It was on October 2009. I decided to blog on it now. Sweet memories are always the memorable ones. Kinda misses it now… Despite that; it meant 1 year is just ‘sap sap sui’. Really fast…..and its already September 2010 now.

It was a short getaway after our wedding.

We bought the room voucher during MATTA fair at the price of RM410 for the water chalet room. (rooms are built just above the sea). Inclusive of buffet breakfast for two. Avillion is located in Port Dickson, which is just approximately 30 minutes drive from my home.

We spent a night of relaxing & pampering ourselves here.

I would say its a prefect resort for me so far. A place which I hope to visit again. The room is clean, the surrounding is comfy, good environment and nice view.  We had a great time there….really hoping for something similar this year!!  😉

our room. unfortunately the rooms were quite occupied that day. we got no choice but to choose 2 single beds instead of 1 big bed.

view from the verandah

the bathroom. the opened-air shower is the best part or unique one.

there was a beach side wedding held on that night. Its so lovely…

changed into swimsuit and hooped into the adult’s pool. There are 2 swimming pools actually. Well….the adult pool is much better…less crowd.

night view of the other pool which located next to the restaurant. Had our supper there.

buffet breakfast….food not bad though

visited the mini petting zoo

feeding the cute & lovely pets

After the breakfast, zoo, we walked over to the beach. While relax, enjoyed the beautiful sandy beach .

-the end-

say goodbye~~~~

Mel’s birthday – Part 2

Hubby celebrated my birthday over the passed weekend.

Initially we thought of dining at “Chili’s”. However I changed my mind few days ago. Thought of trying something new instead. Since I know there are plenty of new food or restaurant which I’ve not tried before. Despite of trying something new, I do not want it to be too pricey though. I asked my friend, asked Ashley for suggestion. She suggested Chinoz. Well, since it has good reviews from some food blogger too…Therefore I told Alex, the changed of plan. Alex answered; up to u….’lei wa si…lei tai sai today’ ~  (u decide, u are the host today) :-p

the sauces

Alex’s orange juice – RM13

My Mango Fizz – RM12

complimentary toast bread

crispy potato wedges – RM9

Fish & Chip – RM28

(the fish meat is very yummy)

Grill Chicken with brown sauce – RM25

I like the fries very much though!

CHURROS – RM20 (with hazelnut chocolate dipping sauce)

I seriously miss this dessert very very much. I have no idea what’s its made of. Its like a soft dough, like soft donuts texture, warm, top with cinnamon powder & sugar. Dip into the chocolate sauce when its warm. VOILA~~~

when I looked up; I noticed this beautiful high ceiling right above me.

Mel cam-whoring….

NOTE: Nice ambiance, cozy, quiet. Food are nice. Price is above average.

Food portion size is average.

Mel’s Birthday – Part 1

Owww…..sad to know that my 28th birthday has just over.

I’m aging year by year….gosh…time flies really fast without one realizing it..

As usual, I’ll be celebrating my birthday with my family & my loved one.

This year, I spared the earlier weekend to celebrate with my family.

We decided to have dinner at a cafe, which newly opens not long ago. Received some good reviews from friend & colleague. Therefore decided to give it a try. They serves fusion food. (western & chinese).

the very 1st dish. “tom yum soup” ..

not so good…. doesn’t taste like tom yum 😦

black pepper udon – NICE

fried chicken wings

-yummy….taste of ‘nam yi’ –

pork meat balls……tasty

Spaghetti – delicious

black pepper chicken chop

chicken maryland – SOSO only!

YOO….We siblings ROCKS!!

Note: This cafe is located in Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2.

I think their western food (those chop chop) so so only. Their chinese food taste nicer….. Out total bill came up to be RM80+ (with drinks). Quite fair lor…each person average less than RM20.

After our dinner; I suggested for 2nd round – ice cream as dessert over in A&W. The place where we able to makan cheap ice creams. Unfortunately, they no longer serves various types of ice creams anymore 😦

Therefore we were restricted to few types only…..*sigh*

I ordered the ‘chocolate ice cream’

with mom, niece, sis & bro

Hubby & I

After all the makan & food, we return home. My mom surprised me with a cheese cake which she made it the day before. Wahhh….I’m so happy & touched.Thank you mummy…thank you everyone!!  😉
