Mummy’s Birthday @XINJIANG COURT

Mom is celebrating her 51st birthday this year. We held the celebration a few days earlier from the actual date. It was on Sunday, where everyone will be at home.

 

Mom decided to try Klana Resort’s All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum Buffet Lunch.(Mummy loves dim sum very much!)

*It was highly recommended by Baby Sumo.*

THANKS to her I would say.

They serves HALAL Dim Sum. So there wouldn’t be any porkie yea…

The price is RM30++/ person. (12-2.30pm). With the price you are paying; I felt that its very worthy. You can dine in a hotel, the dim sum are served upon your order (even though its buffet)- so its still warm.

 

pick your choice of dim sum from the list

 

A complimentary bowl of shark fin’s soup

Not much of shark fin & tasted abit fishy.

 

Porridge with Peanuts – very smooth & tasty

 

 

 

puffs & tarts

 

scallops

 

fruit konnyaku jelly

 

assorted mini cakes

 

Jelly & Pudding

 

fruits

 

Prawn Triangle with Salad Cream – Crispy Skin with big fresh prawns. (yummy)

 

Deep Fried Mango Seaweed Roll – Its yummy. But I hardly taste any Mango.

 

Steamed Scallop Dumpling – Huge scallop underneath

 

Steamed Prawn Dumpling – The prawns are big & fresh

 

 

Steamed Prawn Rolled with Rice Flour (Chee Cheong Fun) – The skin is very smooth & thin

 

Steamed Chicken Rolled with Rice Flour (Chee Cheong Fun)

 

Steamed Chicken Dumpling with Crab Roe

 

Steamed Chicken Feet with ‘Gui Lin’ Style – This one so so only

 

Stir Fried Raddish Cake – I like this very much. The raddish cake aren’t too hard. Not too oily & its tasty.

 

Sang Har Min(Yee Mee in Cantonese Style) – Cooked with huge fresh prawns. The noodles are well cooked and tasty.

 

Steamed Hong Kong sweet corn custard bun – the custard content too little & abit dry

 

Steamed BBQ Chicken Bun – skin too thick, content too little

 

Sis suggested to buy a cake from “The Bakers” (just 1 floor below). Too bad..there aren’t any whole cake that time (12.30pm). However they are so nice to tell my sis to please wait for 1+ hour, they will bake the cake immediately. Since we are dining just upstairs; no harm for us to wait for an hour plus. At about 1.30pm the waiter brought the cake & candles to our table. Mom got surprised!! I guess she’s feeling happy as well  ^^

All of us likes the cake very much(Black & White Chocolate Mousse). Its freshly bake you know…  hahahah…

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MUMMY!!

I Had a Great Time@Genting Highland

Its a long weekend. Due to the public holiday celebrating Deepavali.

Therefore I planned a family trip to Genting. Couldn’t recall when was my last visit. Few years back?? I think so. Dad made the room reservations. Unfortunately sis called up & said she couldn’t join us. What a disappointed call 😦

**Due to ” SELFISHNESS OF SOMEBODY”!! :@

 

Had our breakfast cum lunch & departed from Seremban at about 11.40am and arrived safely at the peak at about 2pm. As we reached the peak; we saw several cars broke down & cars were moving bumper to bumper.

 

Its so difficult to get a car park even if you are staying in the hotel. ITS ALL FULL! Anyway; we got our car parked & check in our luggage into our room. The room is spacious and has a comfy bed! Heard that they have just undergone a renovation.

Deluxe Room of Resort Hotel

 

From Resort Hotel; we walked to First World Plaza through the link way about 10 minutes apart. Had our brunch at Coffee Bean. It was quite crowded there. Everywhere we walk….there’s just *people mountain people sea*. At about 4pm we walked to the outdoor theme park which is just 1 floor below. What I like most; is the weather is very cooling & breezy. The temperature was at 19 degree. I hardly sweat. Isn’t that nice? 😉

Ticket to Outdoor Theme Park at RM40/person

 

The entrance pass covers all the outdoor rides. All you have to do is just queue. We skipped most of it because of the long queue.

An Overview of Outdoor Theme Park

 

It was about 6.30pm by then. We headed back to First World Plaza for our dinner (next post). Had a nice dinner and got ready for the next schedule. GLITZ!! A Performance by several well known people; Charles Bach (Award Winning Magician from USA), The Mystical Grace of The Huachen Acrobatic Group and Daria Pushankina (Sand Animation Artist from Ukraine). What inspires me the most is the sand animation! She actually can make several arts or figures using sand. She even can do several images of our beloved Michael Jackson.


Phew….back to room, took a bath and went to the casino to try our luck.

CHEH!! Made me lost money…..How I wish I can print money 😀

There goes a tiring day. Am I getting old? As I gets tired fast now…. *sigh*

Wedding Anniversary at Philea Resort & Spa

In conjunction of my wedding anniversary on 26th September; Alex and I decided for a getaway to celebrate it. Its our 1st wedding anniversary. Instead of anywhere else; somehow we got seduced by the appearance of this resort during the MATTA fair on beginning of the month. The type of stay is rarely found elsewhere in Malaysia. They were offering promo of purchase 1 night and get the 2nd night for free. Without much hesitation; we bought the room package(Pavillion Villa) inclusive breakfast for 2. Erm..which resort I’m referring to?? Its Philea Resort & Spa, Ayer Keroh, Melaka; new resort which just established this year.

It is located barely 1 minute away from the Ayer Keroh interchange of the North South Highway, 90 minutes from KLIA and 20 minutes from the City Of Melaka. It is one of the premier resorts in the country which lies in the shade of forest giants.

We started our journey & reached there at about 1.30pm. Upon checking in; we were served with wet towels & a glass of welcome drink (with the taste of lemon grass). You need not worry about the walking distance to your room even if your room is located far from the lobby. Because there are buggy service to send or fetch you.

Perhaps I shall put them all in simple sentences. I guess the photos will meant more than words!

the main entrance


the superb entrance


the welcome drink-a signature drink with the taste of lemon grass/serai.

I was told that they uses lemon grass/serai as their theme. Even the bath soap, shampoo or lotion has that lemon grass fragrant too.

the lobby

buggy service to send us to our villa

From the moment we opened our room door; WOW…I was totally amazed with everything & the decoration they made due to our anniversary(I gave a call to the resort;few days before hand & told the staff about our celebration). Minutes later while I was  still busy taking photos; someone rang our room door bell. Alex opens the door and the staff brought in a cake with the label “WEDDING ANNIVERSARY”. I was so touched by their effort. I did not expect them to do so much. From wedding decos, rose petals to cake!

a yummy chocolate cake

Every unit are made of  Russian log wood. I’m pretty curious on the whole construction period.

Yuri Japanese Restaurant, Seremban

With an affordable price of RM48++ (price has revised. its now RM50++ for adult & RM34++ for kids) we gotto enjoy the good Japanese food in Seremban. The restaurant, despite its relatively small but cosy interior, allowed seats of 85 pax and has three traditional tatami rooms for those who prefer privacy.

It comprised 80 varieties of Japanese salad along with fresh sashimi, tempura, unagi,  chicken and beef sukiyaki , variety of tepanyaki, prawn, scallop, fresh oysters, grilled crab, California roll, sushis and chawanmushi. The buffet is only available on Sundays from 11.30am-2.30pm. Kindly make your reservation. Luckily I made my reservation a day before it, as it was full!

Apart from that; it was such a coincident to bump on Yin Yee and Pei Ling, both are my high schoolmates. (as though it was a planned gathering). Yin Yee; whom I have not met for a decade…am so delighted to meet her in person. Moreover her baby gal is so CUTE! Look so much like mummy. Yea; Pei Ling and her lil Issac boy, whom always looked adorable & his ‘good’ signature.

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~~~~

Happy 2nd ROM Anniversary

My ROM date marked on 14 June. This year should be counted as 2nd year. We did not really celebrate the 1st one, as we both were busy preparing our wedding on last September. So, this round also we had a simple one only though since we just return from Korea trip (pocket kena refill sikit). Thought of getting some nice hotels to spend a night. But the nice ones are so costly. ie; Sunway Resort, Traders Hotel, etc. With the price of around RM500 per night(just to tidur); I’ll rather spend a lil bit more extra on the Legend International Water Home with private swimming pool lagi best! Hor….Alex hor…**I’ve hinted liao….next trip yea…yea??**

Our last resort; booked CITITEL Midvalley (superior room)-good location with affordable price , booked buffet dinner over Sun & Surf Cafe of Sunway Resort-recommended by Wanyi.
