Dream Cruise At Harbourfront, Singapore

CRUISING ALONG...

It was unexpected, we did not plan to go for a cruise when we walked into the Matta fair at one of the malls in Ipoh recently.  Normally those who go for the Matta travel fairs are expected to travel within two or three months or even six months after booking them.  But for both of us, we casually asked whether there were vacant cruise in two weeks from then and we got a YES!  Then we paid the downpayment there and then and two weeks later, we were on our way to Singapore for a Gentings Dream Cruise!

This is my first time on a sea cruise, always hearing and never planning to go until now... it was a spur of a moment decision... LOL... and we did not know what to expect.  Anyway, it was only a three days two nights on a ship from Singapore, Port Klang, Singapore... LOL... Well, it was just a start... we just wanted to "test the water" first.... LOL!

Started off from Kuala Lumpur Berjaya Times Square, the bus took us to Singapore and by the time we reached the Harbourfront, it was already 4pm.  Tiring no doubt, the long queues at the immigration and at the check-in harbour, phew... I think I wouldn't want to go through that process again.  Thank God for the four of us, we kept each other spirits up by having light and hearty conversations with each other along the way!

Finally... we embarked, leaving our bags at the check in area... and the first place we searched for is the where they held the International Dinner Buffet!  We were very and super hungry by the time everything was done, we did not want to care about where our rooms were, we just wanted to fill our hungry tummies!!  And after all was well and fed, we went to look for our rooms!  LOL...
At the checking in area before embarking... 
Our spirits still up though we were really exhausted.. .

On the ship.... finally... 
For emergencies... very modernized...
Not those rafts like in Titanic... LOL.. 
Dinner first before checking into our rooms!
Abundant food for our tummies!
One room... 
Two rooms... next to each other.... 
Clean and considered spacious 
compared to the Alaska cruise, so I heard... 
And from our window.... Singapore!
I could stand here for a long time.... just looking.... 
But we did not waste time... 
After checking into our room, we walked out again... to explore the rest!

  3. You are very fortunate to snag vacant slots for a cruise trip. I experienced ridig a ship, although not a cruise ship. Traveling by sea gets boring after many days in the middle of the sea.

  5. What a great unexpected fun trip! I have never seen a modern lifeboat like this one either. It all looks so good. And you never look tired, you always look pretty and happy! OH, the view of Singapore! Now I want to see the same view in the day too! A big hurricane is coming here, and our entire state has been declared a disaster ahead of time. Lots of evacuations, but we are staying. Don't know what will happen to us, just in case you don't hear from me over the weekend. It is coming on Thursday night.

  8. The rooms are much, much bigger than the ones I had on another cruise ship. Yes, the night views are beautiful. I also dread the waiting and checking in time.

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
