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

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
