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.

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... 

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
