Peranakan Staycation! ๐Ÿ’–

Last year this day, I was swimming in my private pool, enjoying my post-NDP retreat~ No budget for that this year, so I made do with a staycation instead! Need a break badly, from work and from the months of hard work ๐Ÿ˜ช I needed something to look forward!!!

So glad that the project is finally over and I could have my well-deserved break! Despite OT-ing till 9pm, it didn’t stop me from looking forward to the staycation every minute ๐Ÿ˜

Started off with breakfast and errands first, but there was a little mishap~ This poor bird got stuck in front of the car bumper and sat here for the next 10 minutes when it finally got out ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Was so afraid that it might not survive because even the uncle said, “ๆˆ‘็œ‹ๅพˆ้šพไบ†ใ€‚ใ€‚ใ€‚” ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Even when I was squatting so close, the bird refused to fly off. I think it had a concussion or just didn’t have strength to fly after getting stuck for so long. Attempted to feed some biscuits and that was when it suddenly flew up to the tree! YAYYYYY!!!! Can still fly! ๐Ÿ˜€ But it stood on the same spot on the tree for the next 10 minutes again… Really hope it survives!!!

Off for my staycation! TA-DUH~!!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Prior to the stay, I was still worried that the room wouldn’t turn out as nice as I had expected. I did a lot of research and reviews seem pretty good, but there are always “what if“~ Took a peek excitedly right after I checked in and thank goodness, the room was AWESOME! Super spacious and even has enough room for a couch!

Definitely pleased and satisfied with the 41mยฒ room! ๐Ÿ˜€ I think I made a pretty good decision! Hehe!

One last look before I mess it up ๐Ÿ˜† I am actually missing it already! I think this might be the thing I wanna splurge on again if I ever win a lottery~ HAHAHA!

Now the bathroom! Only spent 2% of the time inside because there’s already bathtub! ๐Ÿ˜›

Oh the room is a Peranakan Club room, so all the stuff inside are Peranakan style by the way (:

Selfie first!

Complementing the premium stay with a good honey wine from New Zealand! Buddy gave it to me some time ago and I finally had the chance to open it (:

Very milky fish soup!

Had a short walk to explore the surrounding and to digest a little before heading back to the hotel for the cocktail evening! Because it’s a premium club room, I get to enjoy the club benefits which include free-flow wine and house pour! Weeeeeee~ ๐Ÿ˜€

Chilling at the lounge watching TV~

Back to the comfy room for more wine! Finally tried the Moscato that I got from Nad! It’s the same bottle as the one Shrine broke -_- This is the second bottle I bought.

Soaking in the bathtub while sipping on my Moscato and watching the drama that my dear colleagues and I edited! It was definitely a beary happy and shiok staycation! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿป

Nua-ed so much in bed the next morning till almost missed the breakfast! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Only left with 20+ minutes but luckily still had food left! Partly because the breakfast at the lounge is exclusive to the club members only ๐Ÿ˜‰

It even has a Nespresso machine and I had my virgin try on it! I just wanted to play with the machine ๐Ÿ˜… Looks not bad right! Made by barista See!

Trying not to eat too full because I still had cup noodle~~~

Requested for a late check-out at 4pm because I couldn’t bear to leave the room! Haha! Nua-ed till I finally bade farewell to the big room after more than 24 hours and left for our post-NDP gathering! Took the chance to celebrate the August babies’ birthday too! Because Eric is too secretive with his date of birth and we only know it’s August >.>

The 2 Leos~

Since we had celebrated for Cla already, it’s Eric’s turn to cut the cake!

I think he hasn’t celebrated his birthday for a long time lor, like don’t know how to cut cake ._.

Great bonding over 3 hours of karaoke session! In the exact same room as where we had our very first gathering, also organised by yours truly (:

Dessert after dinner!
Rum & Raisin + Hazelnut!

Finally full strength of all 9 people! Had a good discussion for our upcoming Aussie trip and also took the chance to lay down the “rules” and etc. It’s something that I am most worried of since it’s such a big group travelling together, so bound to have conflicts… I just hope everyone can get least give me some “face” as the organiser, if not I will be really ้šพๅšไบบใ€‚ใ€‚ใ€‚Hope it will be a happy trip for everyone!!!

I am super looking forward to finally a trip after so many months since my birthday retreat! Probably the highlight of the year and also the highlight for my bank account ._. Can’t wait to be up on the hot air balloon though! Hehe!

Kept thinking that the next day is Monday already but luckily it’s not! I still have a Sunday…yayyyyy! But it was spent on treating yet another August baby! Hahaha! It was Shimin’s belated birthday lunch treat and she was craving for Mac & Cheese~ Settled for Chir Chir Chicken after we realised Pique Nique has closed down =O

Not the best Mac & Cheese because it was more of cream than cheese. But we were all famished!
 photo 20160814_134532_zps9etwelpu.jpg

I totally had no confident of finishing these chicken, yet the greedy buddy insisted on ordering another Toppoki plate -_- In the end I was already full after a few mouthful of Mac & Cheese + 2 pieces of chicken! That’s the max for me! I don’t understand why they gotta serve such a big plate of chicken and have only 1 size…Zzzzzz. Isn’t it scary to eat so much chicken each if there are only a few of us?!

Went to run some errand plus search for Miss President’s ROM outfit. Yes, she’s getting hitched! Now it’s gonna be extra stressful because I’m the only female in Clique that is still on the shelf ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Checked out the mooncake fair and had all the free samples for durian mooncakes but I still like Peony Jade‘s the best >.<ย  Not sure to splurge on it again this year since I am really, really tight on budget right now…

Anyhow, treated the birthday girl to her very first Godiva ice-cream because everyone has been raving to her about it, including me…hahaha! I told her she gotta try it at least once before she dies ๐Ÿ˜›
 photo 20160814_183518_zpsnplk2o7g.jpg

Didn’t wanna splurge on this but peer pressure ๐Ÿ˜ฆ 9 bucks is indeed damn expensive for an ice-cream, but the quality is really good! I wouldn’t mind splurging on it if I am in a really bad mood~

But of course I wasn’t. I had such a happy weekend! โค
