Double Booking With Resort World And First World Hotel, Gentings

MY FIRST BLUNDER WITH ONLINE BOOKING!

My sisters and I went to the Genting office in Ipoh to book a room but unfortunately, the rooms were fully booked.  In the office itself, I logged in to my usual booking.com to check using my iPhone and to our delight, there were available rooms in Resorts Hotel.  Quickly I clicked reserve and keyed in my particulars.  Settled within minutes... it cost RM560 for 2 nights...

Out of curiosity, I keyed in First World Hotel for the same dates.  Oh, got rooms too and it cost only RM196 for 2 nights... a huge difference from Resorts Hotel which cost RM560!  Being fast and furious, I clicked reserved too.... thought I was very smart!  Instead of one room, I booked two rooms and I thought I could cancel one after that.  But No, I couldn't cos after reaching home, the screen was big enough for me to read the fine print there... NON-REFUNDABLE...

OH.. OH... instead of getting a cheap room, I ended up paying RM760.... and quickly our three minds went into action....Two options, one is to find another two or three persons to go with us or I have to stand at the Hotel Counter to sell one of my rooms.  LOL...

To end my post story, instead of going to Gentings in threes, we ended up in sixes... three to a room and we stayed there for two nights happily ever after!  LOL...

Took off from Ipoh by van at around 8.30am and reached the Resorts World Hotel before noon... 
Didn't realize my picture being taken while registering at the counter...

My Camera Friend who took my picture without me knowing... 
Upon checking in, we had a light lunch with all "food package" from IPOH!
Tuna and egg sandwiches, Nasi Lemak and Nasi Kerabu... 
And of course, we three youngsters stayed in First World Hotel which is 15 minutes away...
We have to go down six escalators and walked a bit to reach First World....
Not too bad... One Queen Bed and One Single for the three of us young ladies!
I did not have to waste one hotel room after all!!

  7. Cutting edge innovation particularly web has totally changed the business framework it used to be. The effect of web can likewise be seen in the visit/travel and inn industry. Presently, with the assistance of web, anybody can get data about top vacationer areas, accessible travel or get-away plans or bundles and obviously where to remain. luxuryrentalphuket.com

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
