Birthday Lunch @ Bumbu Bali, Bandar Puteri Puchong

I've been craving for some Balinese food (especially Sate Lilit). So I finally satisfy that craving one afternoon.

The last time I dine here was years ago. Nevertheless, I had a yummy birthday lunch with the colleagues at Bumbu Bali Puchong.

My Birthday @ Club Neverland KL



Never in my life I have celebrated my birthday in a club. So since this year is my last 20s, I decided to celebrate in a club. Also because someone said that I should celebrate in Old Town Kopitiam next year onwards. ... -.-

Neverland KL is a new club in town and since none of us has been there, we chose that venue.


Jess, I curi your photo. Thanks Babe!

I have to thank Jess for organizing this and Ryan for footing the bill. Also not forgetting my brother Colin, for buying a bottle as well. I really had a blast with all my friends that night.

So, 19 people turned up, 7 bottles of Chivas (thanks to Ryan and Colin), 12 shots of tequila (thanks to Sean), 1 graveyard and waterfall (thanks to Nicholas) -- Anything else? Because I don't quite remember. I don't have a clear memory of the last quarter of that night. Lol.


Thank you baby for the cake and for taking care of me


Thank you baby for the present

October Events

I don't club a lot now unless I have to. Just so happen that I seem to club a lot in October.

Vertigo @ Gardens Midvalley
Jess got invites to the launching of this new club called Vertigo at Gardens Midvalley (Level 6). So, the usual suspects were invited. Free flow of Henessy and beer all night up until 11pm. Boy, we had so much fun on a Thursday night! I guess with the right company, you'll definitely have fun no matter where you are.




Bedroom @ Pavilion
This wasn't planned at all. Ryan and I went to an art festival in Publika at Solaris Dutamas. After the event, we went to Pavilion to meet Jess and Lu. Lu wanted to dance (that reminded me of Lena Lee), so we all went to Bedroom at Level 6. Hmm...Level 6 again? Must be a good number.

The DJ was playing house music which I liked and the place was not too crowded. A lot of angmoh though. Tourists or expats, maybe?

We definitely had fun that night. It's more like a girls' night out. Pity Ryan had to tag along. Lol.

Library @ Midvalley
Okay, it's not a club but it was somebody's birthday and that involved large intake of beer.




Neverland KL @ Jalan Kia Peng
That was where I celebrated my birthday. I will blog about this later.

Alive KL
I did not take any pictures here. Well, to be honest, I don't quite like it here because it's too crowded for me. Ah, I'm getting too old for this. The band is good though and the guys and the girls are quite pretty.

That's my brother drying Bailey with a hairdryer after bathing him. Bailey seems to be enjoying it. Sometimes I wonder who is the master here. LOL!

Ryan's Birthday @ Prime, Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur

On September 21st, I celebrated Ryan's birthday at Prime, Le Meridien Hotel Kuala Lumpur. I've heard so much about this place and it was also voted Best Steak House in Time Out KL Food Awards 2010, so I decided to give this restaurant a try.

I made my reservation online and on the same day, a lady called me to reconfirm (she mispronounced my name though *click here*).

What I liked from my dining experience at Prime:
  • The bread and the 3 different kinds of butter.
  • Lobster Bisque - we ordered 1 to share and they split it into 2 bowls for us.
  • The steak - Sorry I forgot what I ordered but it was good. Better than Ryan's wagyu.
  • Red wine - Sorry again, I forgot which wine I ordered.
  • They actually took note that I was celebrating Ryan's birthday that night and they surprised him with a slice of cake with a candle lighted up toward the end of our dinner. I was surprised. The cake was yummy too.

What I didn't like:

  • Service was slow although the waiters/waitresses were running around. It was hard for us to call them. Understaffed?
  • We waited for almost an hour for our main course. Luckily our main was not a disappointment or else, I'mma kill them! Lol.

It wasn't the best fine-dining experience for me but most importantly, Ryan's happy.

Total damage was MYR518.50.

Why I love October?

I love October because it's my birthday month and of course, Octoberfest! #OktoberfestMY

Octoberfest is an annual fall festival held in Munich, Germany. It is associated with the consumption of large amounts of beer and traditional German foods, etc.

Well, I call it OctoBEERfest!

Please click here and like the facebook page to keep yourself up to date with Octoberfest parties in Malaysia.

Danke!

I was looking for an all German beer picture but this is the best beer picture I can find in my album. :D

This song just gave me back my soul. It's an old song by James Morisson.

I just had a great night out with Jess. We haven't been spending time alone for quite some time. I had 3 bottles of Konig Ludwig at TDH and this song was playing. I know it's a bit contradicting because it's a sad song and it's about the pieces don't fit anymore but I don't care. I'm happy now. I haven't been myself since last Saturday. I guess it's because of the time of the month. Lol!



Well I can't explain why it's not enough, cause I gave it all to you. - James Morisson

Singapore

A few weeks ago, Ryan and I went on a 6D 5N cruise on Superstar Virgo that departs from Singapore. So, we spent one night in Singapore before and after the cruise. Some highlights and lowlights of our stay in Singapore as follow:

Hard Rock Hotel, Singapore (Sentosa Island)
We stayed here for one night before the cruise. We bought a 2D 1N package for MYR1300 that includes:
  • One night stay in Hard Rock Hotel
  • Breakfast for two
  • Two one-day adult passes to Universal Studios Singapore
  • Complimentary welcome drinks for two
I don't know why we were given a smoking room but I guess maybe that's because I did not specifically request for a non-smoking room. Note to self - always remember to request for a non-smoking room. What happened was, the moment we opened our room door, we were greeted with a very strong smell of cigarette. I felt like we walked into an ashtray. The air in the room was very stale. The worst part was that there's no window in the room. So we couldn't really let fresh air in.

I was so tired that night but I couldn't sleep well. I kept waking up because of our noisy neighbour. They must be a bunch of college kids playing cards and drinking in the room and they laughed so loud on and off it drove me crazy. The hotel room wall must be really thin. Nevertheless, the furnishings and the layout of the room is quite tasteful. The only thing is they should provide a rack for the guests to place their shampoo, body shower and etc in the shower.

Tanjong Beach Club, Sentosa
We met up with Denny and Stephanie in Tanjung Beach Club. Tanjong Beach Club is a bar and cafe located along Tanjong Beach in Sentosa Island. It's supposed to be a nice place from all the pictures of the bar I googled but the weather was horrible that day. It was drizzling. I hate going to a beach bar in that kind of weather.

Catching up with Denny and Stephanie was good. The last time we met was during our Beijing reunion in Bali in December 2010.

Universal Studios Singapore
We went to USS the next day. We had a full-day pass but we had to check-in to our cruise by 4pm. So we left at 2pm. Well, USS was fun! We reconnected with our inner child in there.

Shopping
We went shopping at this new mall called Ion in Orchard. We weren't aimlessly shopping though. My mission was to go to Muji Store and knocked myself out. When is Muji coming to KL?! Can't believe they have it in Indonesia and Singapore but not KL. Grrr!

Also, went to Isetan next to Takashimaya to get Fancl products for Jess. I bought myself something nice too. Sweet!

We wanted to check out H&M but OH MY LORD...the QUEUE was so long we dropped that idea. But really...SERIOUSLY? People actually queue like that for H&M? Hehehe.

Sands SkyPark @ Marina Bay Sands
The reason we were here because we haven't been here before and Ryan wanted to take pictures. Ku De Ta Singapore is located here. I still prefer the Ku De Ta in Bali. Oh, just thinking about it made me want to go back to Bali. I think Bali is the place I really don't mind visiting again and again.

Hooters @ Clarke Quay
I actually like the food here. Can't remember what we had for our main but the following is the appetizers:

V Hotel Lavender, Singapore
This is the hotel we stayed for one night after our cruise. Apart from the hotel conveniently located directly above Lavender MRT Station, everything else was bad. I had a very bad night here.

First of all, the room is small but that's okay as we only needed a place to sleep for one night. The shower drain wasn't draining water fast enough and that flooded the dry area of the toilet. The AC was blowing out warm air instead of cool air. After complaining, a technician came to our room to adjust the temperature. He set the temperature to the lowest but only a very slight improvement. I couldn't sleep well throughout the night because I was sweating and the room was stuffy. So, no more V Hotel Lavender for me.
