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.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
