The Answer And Ibis Hotel Bencoolen, Singapore

Alright... the answer to the previous post...  I found my handphone in my CAR!!  When I reached home, I was searching high and low for my hp... my girl even called my hp number but the ringing sound was not heard in the house.... and my last resort to search for my hp was my car.... and it was indeed there lying on the front seat... with 20 Missed Calls and few SMS-es...  What's next, Reanaclaire???   So ... the ones who guessed the correct answer are from GINNY AND BRENCIA!!  Congratulations!!  And the most popular place mentioned is the TOILET!  aikkksss.... LOL....

Alright... excitement over... back to my Singapore trip...
 From the airport, we took a cab to Ibis Hotel in Bencoolen Street...
I feel I am older now...
Cos my kids have taken over my duties... 
They can do all the registration from now on.... 
It's time for me to rest....and....
Relax.... like this... .
or this way....
or how about this position...

Whatever... it is great to be here....
.... in Ibis Hotel, Singapore.... the chain hotels are all over...
I forgot to take some pictures of the room...
Ours is twin size bed... 
Well, how did we manage to sleep??? 
Somehow ... we managed to squeeze in... our 4 pairs of feet!


  1. I know Bencoolen Street. Nice hotel, new, I guess... Last time, one only - same name as the street, dunno still there or not.

    How much 1 night? They allow all 4 of u to squeeze in one room?

  2. I ever stayed in this hotel before nice and cosy i like

  3. Hope you enjoyed your stay in singapore

  4. haha, i actually thought of CAR but then i went for the more popular answer.. glad that your phone is still there and not missing, hehe..

    looks like a nice hotel but too bad lah no photos of the room.. so only the 4 pair of legs slept on the bed?? :D

  5. I ever stayed in this hotel before nice and cosy i like

  6. I ever stayed in this hotel before nice and cosy i like

  7. stp: they didnt say they dont allow.. so all squeeze in lo... my son booked it online.. it cost around $160 or so... cos next week is Formula 1...

    libby: yes, it is quite nice and cozy... not too bad..

  8. sk: next time dont change answer.. hahaha.. yes, 4 pairs.. cannot squeeze in more legs.. hahahaa..

  9. Front seat ah ...lucky tarak ppl pecah windiw. But if unside the hse then should b safer la

  10. kathy: hp actually under the cushion pillow.. wonder why... :)

    bananaz: chiang, right? got smell or not????

  11. once my son left my phone in the car and I thought he took my phone. I called and my girl heard the ringing tone from the car but the phone was not easy to be found. It has dropped right under the sofa of the car..

  12. HP in car huh... well i guess it happens :p

  13. You left your hp in the car? So dangerous lo! Luckily it was still there when you realize it...

  14. Wow, your many sitting poses are really "gaya". The IBIS hotel looks very nice. Their chain is all over the world, I stayed in the IBIS chain in Copenhagen and found it quite nice but yours look really nice.

  15. Claire, you look SO cute in the awesome modern furniture!!!

  16. Good choice of hotel because it is near to the main shopping area ie. Bugis Junction and Bugis Plus.

  17. wenn: mine was covered with the cushion cos maybe morning time i went to buy something, i hid it there.. sigh..

    ken: cos never took handbag that morning...

  18. hayley: yeah..still there.. hahaa..

    mun: not the 5 star but at least clean and comfy... can fit us 4! hahaha...

  19. ginny: thanks!!

    libby: yes, behind only.. got food court already..

  20. Nice pose. Looks like model, hehehe.Wow, dangerous to leave your phone in the car. If at parking lot, people saw it sure smash your car window. Anyway you are lucky.

  21. irene: the hp was beneath my cushion.. yeah, Thank God..

    sharon: oh, you have to ask him.. :)

  22. Hello Miss Colgate lady! You are smart to stay at Ibis which I discovered has the best value for money deals. The last time I stayed in a cheap hotel which was just slightly cheaper than IBIS but had no windows!!!! Hell me and I regretted so much as that nice looking hotel fooled me!! They never mentioned no windows whatsoever. They told me all the rooms were fully booked so I had to sleep in windowless rooms.

  23. Singapore hotel rooms quite expensive compared to Malaysia's. Ibis Bencoolen is a nice hotel situated in a convenient location. I stayed for a night. Room is too small for me. :)

  24. I saw Ibis hotel chains when I was trying to make booking for our visit to singapore in May this year..At the end we stayed at People's Park apartment with 3 rooms to accommodate 3 families..the apartment is a bit old but convenient. Base on you recommendation I will try Ibis hotel for our next trip to Singapore.

  25. TM: oh, i think i would feel very suffocated psychologically! This one is not bad... walking distance to Makan too!!

    eastcoast: yes..not so spacious but we can get along with it! :)

  26. Agnes: a bit small but me and my kids don't really mind.. :)

  27. claire..sometimes we wouldn't mind squeezing in with the kids..heart warming moment..haha

  28. Luckily Parlor mali feet not HongKong feet haha (typing with one hand the other squeezing my nose hehe)

  29. Nice! I've stayed in Ibis before, but not the Singapore one coz I have my sister there. They're a huge chain right? I can't remember where I've stayed but it's at least two places and one of them is Bali!

  30. ling: yeah..cos sooner or later, we cannot squeeze into them.. hahahaa...

    bananaz: you are really hilarious!! I like!! hahahaa...

    HB: course you dont remember, you stayed in so many places before already! :) But this one really not too bad.. good location...

  31. For a budget traveller like me, it's very hard for me to find a cheap hotel in Singapore that comes with good location and clean. My mom also like you. I do the registration thing while she relax at the sofa. Hahaha.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
