Recce of Golden Palm Tree Resort Hotel

Went for hotel inspection. Its was quite a drive....we reached destination in 1 hour and a half. It was a hot day. After parking, we have to wait for a buggy to come and fetch us. Its the same procedure for any guests who parks their car at the property.

We were taken to see a few luxurious rooms.

Royale Palm Villas

The villas have a direct and stunning view of the Straits of Malacca to simply rest and relax to be amazed by the breathtaking sunset and admire the beauty of nature.

Canary Palm Villa

All villas are with two private terraces that offer panoramic sea view for peace and tranquility.

It is really a spectacular five star water villa resort. Breathtaking beach frontage on the coastline

I was told the design combines Polynesian-Maldivian styles with a touch of tropical Malaysian finishing . They have an all day dining restaurant. Lounge Bar, Bar, etc. A few water sports activities, excursions, snorkeling, a recreation centre with fitness room and library, TV room, boutiques, and a Spa.

We left the place after lunch and back to office and continue working.

Goodbye Tavet

Vavet....or Tavet is hubby's cat. Its a female cat and she has been in his family for more then 10 years. She's the most obese cat in the house. She stays in Seremban and everybody loves her.

Actual name given to her was 'Rug Rat' cos of her fur-colour combination but becos she is a very 'manja' cat, it became 'Vavet' or 'Tavet'.

Tavet is a very previledged cat cos she is the only ones that can hopped-onto MIL's bed and sleep on it!! Tavet don't climb the walls to go to the other side, instead we had to open the gate for her to go to the other side!! "Mengada-ngada" kan? But in a cute little way :)

Hubby called me at the office just before noon today and told me the bad news....she died. Suspected being biten by a dog....poor cat. She is so harmless.

I'm actually used to-be quite terrified of fierce cat or cats that likes to scratch you but i can never get it from Tavet. Its like she senses that i'm a scardy-cat that she just come to me to get stroked. She never bite me and she purrs non-stop if you stroked her.

Whenever hubby and I goes back to Seremban, he will call her name and she'll respond! And she will make sure that she sleeps with us. I'm gonna miss her....hubby for sure.

Goodbye Tavet....

My first time to Sepang International Circuit

Yes, it is my first time to set foot in Sepang International Circuit. Never had the chance to come to this place where its famous for its F1. Thanks to ****** for giving hubby the complimentary tix.

But i'm here to see Super GT International Series (Autobacs). What is it? The Super GT series, formerly known as the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship is a grand touring car race series promoted by the GT-Association.

Good hot weather but quite a long-good walk from the parking area to the track area. The paddock building was abuzz with activities as journalists and photographers from all across the world arrived, for the support racers and SuperGT. All busy with shooting and of course, here, the GT girls and GT Queens who are so-ready to pose for you.

Its is said, its Japan’s hottest and most happening racing series, the SuperGT International Series at the Sepang International Circuit. The cars are divided into two groups: GT500 and GT300. And there are plenty of sporty cars on displays too.

Race fans will be able to watch it from the main-grandstand or in the suite. We are so lucky to get the suite as it is 'damn' hot/humid and 'damn' noisy!!

It is so comfy watching from inside the suite, there's flat screen TV for you to check on the points/laps. Its air-conditioned and there's not much noise from the race-track. Plus food are provided for (lunch & tea) with comfy seats too. And you can order any drinks you'd like....coke, sprite, coffee/tea...u name it!

Overall, i enjoyed the outing and am glad we made the trip to Sepang. I get to experience the paddock, the car-race & people etc.

Movies - Prince of Persia, The A Team & Toy Story 3

Prince of Persia

It was a boring week and i kinda need to have a movie-fixed. So i didn't expect much from this movie, and wasn't planning on watching it after watching the trailer. But somehow the action sequences turned out to be pretty good in the movie. So i'm more than glad that i did. Not a Jake fan. And at first glance Jake wouldn't be my first choice for the role of the prince as i didn't think he really looked the part...but the movie itself is enjoyable, and not totally predictable storyline. I liked movies that is not easily predictable.


The A Team

Hubby & I grew up watching the series and how can i not wanna go watch the movie!! We felt that it is one of the funniest movies and with lotsa action from the start. The new A Team deserves all positive praises. Altho at the end of the movie, its kinda easy to decipher who was betraying the team...hehehe... Definately a must watch!


Toy Story 3

You've seen its 1 and you muz see its 3.

We must say, its the best movie....most of the character makes a nice warm welcome back with brand new toys too. Andy has grown up and Woody & Buzz has grown wiser too. This movie was completely worth the wait, its funny & hearwarming and i suggest that you go and watch em.

Mid-week trip up north

I applied leave yesterday. Needed a break after my office's conference plus hubby needed to do something in Taiping. He said since we're going north, might as well go and tryout a food joint that is famous in Ipoh, its called "Nasi Kandar Ganja".

Last nite we decided that we will drive up north, eat and come back. But this morning, quite suddenly, we thought, why not drive up to an even further Penang perhaps?! Yes!!

We just quickly packed up basic needs (just in-case) and started our journey around 10am.

We reached Ipoh just in-time before the rush lunch-hour. We managed (i meant hubby) found the place. The place were kinda full but we managed to get a seat. The nasi kandar stall is actually inside a chinese restaurant. We buy our food from the nasi kandar stall but only ordered drinks from the shop. This shop is an old shop with 'kopitiam' concept.

I just ordered the 'ayam masak merah' which were said to be famous with curry gravy ontop. Hubby ordered 'kari sotong'.

What do we think about it? It was sorait....don't quite like the rice texture and the curry were okey lah. Was it really 'ganja' that i will want for more? Ermm...not really. We give it a 5 out of 10.

Later we made our way up to Penang. Reached there at 3pm. Tried our luck at Cititel and they were not full, so we checked-in.

In the same evening, hubby said he wanna take me somewhere. I don't know what he has on his sleeves....but it was a pleasant surprise.

He took me to 'Taman Kota Lama'.......wahh!! Its been ages since i last been to Padang Brown lah!! He read somewhere that the best mee goreng is found here.

The last time i came to 'Padang Kota Lama' was when i was a kid!!....didn't know this place still exists, hehehehe...sorry ya Penang people.

Have you all heard of 'Mee Goreng Pata'??

OMYGOSH!!!! The mee-goreng is REALLY REALLY SEDAP!!! SANGAT SANGAT SEDAP!! Not only its cheap, its really authentic and delicious. Accompanied with ABC & Ice Syrup...pergghhhh....nice!! Hubby ordered 'Mee Rebus'....and it was quite allright. But not as nice as the 'Mee Goreng'. Thanx Bee :) "tak menyesal datang sini".

Later on we were so full that we can't take dinner. We only shared a plate of maggie goreng from a nearby mamak shop...i forgot the name of the shop.

The very next day, we had 'Nasi Lemak bungkus' for our breakfast. Hubby said must find Nasi Lemak Ali (famous for its sambal). They have a few types of Nasi Lemak but hubby took Nasi Lemak Udang and I had Nasi Lemak Telor. The rice is soft & the sambal is not too sweet nor too hot.

For lunch, we stopped by "Kassim Nasi Kandar" but no 'telor sotong'. So we decided Yasmin Restoran to have our nasi-kandar with telor sotong!! We left Penang after that. And the next day, back to office.
It was a nice mid-week trip fot the both of us :)
