A Glum Look At Orchard Parade Hotel

After checking out from Orchard Hotel, the four of us pulled our luggage bags to the hotel opposite.. Orchard Parade Hotel! We really had a good laugh over the bookings of the hotels, thanks to me! hahahaaa... I didn't know they are just opposite one another...

By the time we checked in, it was almost one.. but we were told to wait till 2pm... told the receptionist that my son was not feeling well, couldn't she get me a room to check in first?  NO, we had to wait.. she said.. ok, next time no more staying here..  
so.... to pass the time, we walked here and there...
the lobby...
 the two blues.....
While waiting for the rooms to be ready, we walked around...
and a thought came to my mind..
We can start planning for a Mauritius Holiday next year..
It will be a different holiday altogether!
another in-blue joined me...
see.... this is evidence...
he was really feeling not so well that day..
the receptionist ought to give us a room, right?
don't tell me ALL the superior rooms were fully booked??
Well... what can the guests do?? 
Give a Glum Look! 


  1. Is bad la.. They actually can get you to their lounge for a rest d.. Is bad just to let you wait at lobby..

  2. Is this a new hotel? Why the big flower bouquets behind you?

  3. Eunice: due to my inexpertise, I will rate it 3/5 for the room, service is 3/10 ...

    nikel: no difference.. just have to wait..

    charmaine: there is a new restaurant there..

  4. Former Ming Court Hotel (The KL one is now Corus)...was around when I was there in 1973. Orchard is a bit newer...but also old. How much one night?

  5. The name of both hotel looks almost similar. Are they sister hotel? Anyway, nice hotel.

    Oh!...gonna wish you & family a very Prosperous Happy New Year 2012.

  6. Claire, why check out and check in in the same area again?

  7. stp: er.. that one is RM590 if not mistaken..

    irene: Thanks.. I wish you Happy New Year too!

    chinnee: at first thought of booking one night only.. then changed mind.. wanted to try another hotel..

    kathy: if forget, ask me first.. if u remember.. hahaha..

  8. looks ike a nice hotel, though.

  9. Oh no.....fall sick while holidaying...better bring him to see doctor.

  10. It's a nice hotel. Give it another chance and be understanding. They probably didn't have a room at that hour because it's peak seasons especially in the NOV to DEC period. Do try their pizzas, very yummy! Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.

  12. In Singapore, everything is NEW New New, not new, people don't like.

    That is why they pull down buildings even when they are still good.

  13. You match the tree, but you are prettier than it is!!! Your poor son, what is wrong with him? Maybe they were waiting for someone to check out, they must have been full??

  14. hahaha U wanted to try a different hotel but it's jes right opposite. Hope u got a different view. :)
    So pitiful to be sick while travelling.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
