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... 
Inside the Resorts World Hotel room... 
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 Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they?

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
