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

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 …
