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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
