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 😪 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 😍
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 😦 Was so afraid that it might not survive because even the uncle said, “我看很难了。。。” 😩
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! 😀 But it stood on the same spot on the tree for the next 10 minutes again… Really hope it survives!!!
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!
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~ 😀
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.
Nua-ed so much in bed the next morning till almost missed the breakfast! 😱😱😱 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 😉
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 >.>
Since we had celebrated for Cla already, it’s Eric’s turn to cut the 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 (:
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 难做人。。。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
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 😭
Checked out the mooncake fair and had all the free samples for durian mooncakes but I still like Peony Jade‘s the best >.< Not sure to splurge on it again this year since I am really, really tight on budget right now…
But of course I wasn’t. I had such a happy weekend! ❤
