Getaway at Amara Sanctuary Sentosa

24 Nov 2013

Woke up at about 10am, eating strawberries while watching Cartoon Network till almost 1pm.

Did a check-out and off to Vivocity JPot for lunch. It was a good meal which I need after a tiring week.

Chilled at Max Brenner Chocolate Bar till 6pm.

23 Nov 2013

Over the weekend, I was staying at Amara Sanctuary with Dare Association. I considered myself as away from Singapore.

We decided on the second level as the rooms were more spacious. The pool was just a high jump away from the balcony.

And looked at the amount of food they prepared.

Time to shake off some fats in the jacuzzi and pool.

The water was warm and so I was daring enough to soak myself for hours. Managed to kind of swim, with goggles of course.

Back to the room to shower then decided to go for late dinner at Mac.

Watched Resident Evil on Channel 5 before heading to sleep.

G2000 Winter Style Party

22 November 2013

Attended the G2000 Winter Style Party at ION Orchard with KZ. I totally didn't dress to the theme by wearing a romper.

The event began with a small-scale runway in the store followed by stylist Keith Png giving tips on how to stand out in everyday office wear.

And also, there was a makeover session by Kose but by then, most of the guests were already busy shopping, just like me.

Here's the leather trimmed dress I tried and bought.

I bought more than just this of course. There was a a military-styled cardigan and a black crochet top. Thanks to the 2nd top at 50% (still ongoing) and the 20% final bill discount.

Headed for dinner at The Soup Spoon. A hot bowl of Tokyo Chicken Stew (I love it!), Asian Tofu Salad and Ice Tea. Fantastic for the cold weather.

Chilled at Starbucks Wisma Atria till past 11pm.

Movie Review: Closed Circuit

13 Nov 2013

Had a shopping spree at Make Up Store at Robinsons Orchard. Bought eyeshadows, liquid eyeliner and lipstick. Spent about $154 after 10% member's discount.

Won preview tickets to "Closed Circuit" starring Eric Bana. Invited KZ to watch at Shaw Lido.

I took a long time to figure out the story line as there were no subtitles. Anyway, if you like to use your brain, you should watch this crime-based movie.

10 Nov 2013

Celebrated Grandma's 75th birthday at Crystal Jade Kitchen for dinner then cake-cutting at her place.

Other than CNY and nephew's birthday, this is almost the only time all of us got together.

Dinner at Chin Huat Live Seafood

09 Nov 2013

Met KZ and Nicholas for late dinner at Chin Huat Live Seafood located at 105 Clementi St. 12. They used to have lots of TV ads in the 90s and I could still remember the owner carrying a big crab.

Here's what we ordered to share. And also the buns which I didn't bother to take picture of. We couldn't finish the Golden Sauce Alaska Crab and KZ had to takeaway.

 Bamboo Clams

Golden Sauce Alaska Crab of 1.8kg

The bill came to about $220 for a finger-licking meal.

Headed to Udders at Bukit Timah for ice-cream. I had Rum Rum Raisin and Earl Grey ice-cream. The Earl Grey ice-cream was good.

Home at about midnight with a happy tummy.

08 Nov 2013

Top-up my Starbucks card with $120 to get the Starbucks planner. I would patronize Starbucks anyway so must as well top-up in advance.

Dinner at Poulet with Dare Association

06 Nov 2013

Went on shopping spree yesterday at G2000 JEM. Tried 4 outfits but only bought 1 top and 2 bottoms. Thanks to the 30% off for regular items, that's for members only.

Looking at the outfits, I still feel I didn't shop enough.

05 Nov 2013

Guess what I got as a gift from my boss? A pretty little Prada cardholder from Milan!

Had dinner with Dare Association at Vivocity. We waited for at least 1.5hr at Starbucks for a table at Jamie's Italian and still didn't get a table. Anyway, long story and I won't waste my time on this restaurant.

So we went just opposite at Poulet. We ordered quite an amount of food for 7 pax.

I had poulet roti half chicken which was not bad, an option after New York New York collapsed. It's only half chicken and I already can't finish it. But there's always space for dessert so I shared tiramisu with Ama and KZ.

Chilled at CBTL till 10:30pm.

Langkawi 2013 with Dare Association

03 Nov 2013

Woke up at 6am to pack and leave for Singapore.

All of us kind of lack of sleep and slept on the plane. Took a picture of the beautiful sky.

Landed on time or actually early. Nicholas went off while the rest of us went shopping at the arrival hall.

See how much I have spent on the airport. It's about the same amount as my expenses and accomodation in Langkawi. 

The SK-II limited edition set of Lotion and Essence at $250, Bobbi Brown smudge-proof eyeliner in Jet at $27 and Issey Miyake Christmas Set at $121.

Headed for breakfast and I had Texas Chicken to satisfy my fried chicken craving.

Home sweet home to unpack and laundry washing.

02 Nov 2013

Woke up at 6am+ to send KZ to the airport. We had breakfast at the Langkawi International Airport after KZ check-in. Sadly her flight was only announced delayed after she check-in.

Ama, Nicholas and I decided to drive around since we were already awake.

We found a beach which was pretty close to The Cabin and decided to book parasailing and jet ski for late afternoon.

We found a cosy cafe named La Chocolatine nearby and chilled there.

We continued to drive around to explore near The Datai.

Passed by the yacht club and can't resist myself from taking photos of the beautiful view.

We drove around looking for Pebble Beach but got lost. But it's definitely alright because we found the beach with the clearest sea at The Andaman. We were all wow-ed and I felt like I was in Maldives. 

Since the scenary was this good, we decided to have a good lunch by the beach. Nicholas had ribeye steak and we shared curly fries and tandoori pizza.

Drove back to The Cabin to change and got ready for sea sports.

I went parasailing with Nicholas at RM150 for like 5mins only. I felt like I was being blown up into the sky but looking at the scenic view made me forget that I was dangling high up in the air. The bad part was us landing flat and ugly on the beach.

Ama and Nicholas went on jet ski for 30mins while I helped to take photos.

Drove to Unkaizen Japanese Restaurant to reserve a table for dinner. And while waiting,  we chilled at Starbucks at Cenang Mall for wifi then headed back to The Cabin to clean up.

Got the rest to join us for dinner before we leave the following day.

Couldn't finish the Chicken Katsuni complete with appetizer, chawamushi, miso soup, rice and fruits.

On the way back to The Cabin, Ama and Nicholas bought stuff across the street.

It was only about 10:30pm when we fell asleep while the rest were getting their massage done.

01 Nov 2013

Woke up at about 10am, wash up and had breakfast at The English Tea Room

Ranga's friend was already waiting for us at The Cabin to join us for the rest of the trip.

We drove to find Black Sand Beach and had Asam Laksa and coconut water. The Asam Laksa was spicy and sour but really shiok! We only spent RM7 for a meal like this.

Chilled a while by the beach before heading back to The Cabin.

Had our massage done at Furosato Spa at 8pm. It was average, only made me slept for a short while.

LL and her boyfriend arrived in Langkawi about this time but they had dinner on their own.

Had Lok Lok for dinner just opposite Cenang Mall. Only spent RM9 for 8 sticks of Lok Lok and a cup of Longan drink. Just talking about it makes me hungry for their sauces.

Lok Lok wasn't the full dinner. We ended up at Haroo, a restaurant opened by a kind Korean family. Ordered too much food that we couldn't finish.

Back to The Cabin to shower and chill at the garden playing Indian Poker.

Lights out at 3am.

31 Oct 2013

Thanks to Nicholas's mum, we got a lift to the airport for our Langkawi trip.

Check-in and had breakfast at CBTL.

There was a flight delay that made us sat in the plane for an hour for nothing. And so, we only arrived in Langkawi in the early afternoon.

Rented a car for the next few days so that we could explore the island our way.

Had our lunch at Old Town White Coffee in Cenang Mall while waiting to check-in The Cabin. The Ipoh Signature Hor Fun was good.

Finally we could check-in at 2pm. Here's how The Cabin looks like.

Unpacked our stuff and we were ready to explore Langkawi.

Went to The Zon to buy alcohol and cigar for enough time to get them chilled.

We drove to look for Asam Laksa but they didn't sell it on that day. Disappointed but we knew we would go back the following day.

Instead, we took photos of the beach before leaving.

On the way back to The Cabin, there was night market selling the junk food like bbq chicken, Ramly Burgers, Murtabak and pancakes.

We bought lots of food again. I have to tell you, the Murtabak Chicken was awesome. I haven't tried Murtabak all my life and didn't realise it's that good. Or maybe only the one in Langkawi's good.

We squeezed in Nicholas's Balcony eating all the junk food like nobody's business. I was too busy eating to take photos.

After food, it's time for drinks. All chilled in my room, twerking, playing Indian Poker and drinking. It was a good night until I got drunk.
