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.

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
