Carlton Hotel Singapore Is Just Nice For Us...

We stayed in Carlton Hotel, booked through Agoda online. One night cost around $147 without tax when I booked a month ago. The taxi cab driver told me that it cost around $300sg and that I have booked it very cheap through the net. But lately when I logged in again to check the rates, it was already $200usd!

A very nice hotel, I wouldn't mind staying again and again... firstly, it is very near to the shopping centres, such as the Bugis Street, Raffles shopping mall, Marina Bay Sands and the MRT is just opposite... but too bad the rates are not fixed.. it is like share market, you got to log in to check every now and then.. hahaha...


  1. Yup, very nice hotel...and SIN$147 is cheap...even though it is very expensive after conversion. Can't complain - for that kind of money, normally you would get some small and lousy hotel in some lousy location. That's why I don't intend to go to Singapore ever again. Can't afford!

  2. I like staying in hotel near to shopping centre. Very convenient to do shopping and no need to spend extra on cab. That would save a bit.

  3. Yes Irene and as long as they r affordable too.

  4. it's a big and classy hotel. Will consider Carlton Hotel if we go to S'pore, hopefully next year. Travel with with small kids, it is a good idea to stay near shopping complexes with less travelling in public transports needed.

  5. nice hotel but still it's rather expensive..anyway, glad you had fun in Sg.

  6. So can only go once a blue moon. Ha ha. Our currency here is so low.

  7. wow looks classy! how many starssss?

  8. Looks nice. Stayed there for how long? Can't wait to read about your trip there.

  9. When I. Checked recently it was ard $200usd already . I think every now and then the rates changes. :)

  10. Very nice hotel and the room looks spacious too. Bookmark this hotel too!

  11. Very spacious and comfy room with that rate.

  12. Wah, you got quite a good deal! S'pore hotels are getting more & more ex. Nevertheless, it can't beat Japan. Hotel prices are sky high there. Can't wait for my trip in early Dec.

  13. Breakfast was provided for one person only.. maybe that was why it was cheaper...

  14. that center piece was extravagant i loved it as well as that pond/ fountain where you were sitting

  15. mecoy: I like it too..

    kathy: pay and tharn.. hahaha...

  16. The hotel looks stunning. All of Singapore looks really nice in photos!! Sharon -

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...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

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 street...  A …
