St Giles The Gardens At Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur

My girl and I went to the wrong hotel in Mid Valley... Instead of St Giles at The Gardens, we entered the Boulevard St Giles instead...both having the same name but different locations altogether.... yes, we were kind of "jakuns?"  My son had not arrived yet, he came up from JB whereas we took a bus down from Ipoh... so both of us were kind of waiting at the wrong lobby!

Anyway, all were made right when I approached the check in counter and made an enquiry... and he told us that it was not the same.. though by the same management but different hotel altogether...the staff there was so kind and friendly, he even "offered" us a bell boy to take all our luggage and led us to the right hotel at The Gardens.  So nice of the bell boy too, leading us all the way through the Mid Valley shopping mall with our luggage all in the trolley... Well, "sik joe la" after that....  hahahaa...

My son was caught in the jam and he came thirty minutes after we did... it was lunch time, what else to expect in the city center?   
And finally.... our hotel room!
The welcoming beds....
And the vast restroom....
 Then we proceed to Madam Kwan for our late lunch...
It was almost 4pm then!!
 Both of us could finished them all.... !
As for dinner at 9pm, we had a "Lighter Meal" at Nyonya Colors...
And we called it a night after that...

  1. Very late lunch but a delightful one. Used to stay in the hotel next to Mid-Valley twice. Convenient and near to shopping mall.

  2. Nice nyonya dishes. Eyeing at that bowl of ais kacang. I can gulp down the whole bowl especially during this hot weather.

  5. Your hotel room is so nice. I did not even know that the hotel at Gardens is called St Giles. Why only two of you ate at Madam Kwan. Your daughter did not eat with you and your son?

  10. I never knew there's a hotel, or two hotels at The Gardens. Always thought there's only the Cititel there!

    Hahaha, if you mm sik joe, then I think the bell boy would cart your luggage back to where he came from! XD

  14. Whenever my foreign guests asked me to recommend a hotel, I would always tell them Mid Valley!!
    That ideal location is most central with choice of hotels and quick exit to airport.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
