A Visit To Marina Hotel Forest City, Johor

HERE WE COME...  Using Waze, we drove a half hour journey to Forest City, a popular resort which was the talk of the town, but unfortunately due to the pandemic, everything seems to be at a standstill.  They are having a promo in Marina Forest City Hotel, for only RM199 for a spacious room, a king size bed, a long sofa and a huge bathroom, this rate also includes 3 meals!  Breakfast, high tea and either lunch or dinner, our own choice.  Oh, this is not a sponsored post... I am just relating what I know and they have this promo banner displayed at the lifts!

We went in to have a look at the room... yes, we like it very much!  However we did not stay there, maybe the next time when we go Johor again... though the promo rate will not be around once the economy picks up.  Sad to see that everything is affected, hope this pandemic will be over soon!  Really yearn for our lives to be back to normal like before... 
There are 3 hotels just next to each other... 
Our destination is Marina Hotel.... 
At the lobby.... very huge and spacious...
Reception area....
Scenery from the 10th floor of the hotel corridor... 
The condos and the villas... wonder whether they are occupied....
A small jetty below....
Can even see Singapore from where we stood.... 
The spacious bed.... 
Even the bathroom was spacious.... bathtub on one side...
And the shower on the other side... with the toilet which was hidden on the left...
The love birds...
My friend taught me how to do this... hahaha...
Not sure I can still remember...
Scenery from the balcony....
Not bad, right?
On this side... they have these...
Whales? Dolphins or someone mentioned they looked like "cicak?"
oh no.... 
What do these look like to you?
After a short rest, we came down to walk around the vicinity....

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

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....

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

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
