We just finished all of our yucky sucky midterm papers. It had been such a hectic week for us. So, it'd be great if I could quit from my real world and take my sweet lil' time to unwind even if it is just for a day. Hence, when our last paper had just finished, I asked for my dad if it is possible if he could sponser for our night stay at any hotel. And he said yes! Omg! hehe. I was so excited! He asked me how many nights I wanted to stay. So I said 3 days & 2 nights. (since last weekend we had quite a long days off - Friday till Monday!)
So he booked 2 rooms for us from Friday till Sunday (Yeay!). One room with king sized bed and another room with double beds. =)
Hmm.. Let me just give you a little information about this hotel.

So on Friday, we checked in around 8 pm (we were quite late because I had to submit my assignment. isk). Anyway.. upon arriving, they gave us two luscious complimentary drinks! Luckily, Girl arrived on Saturday, otherwise we have to share our drinks! LOL =P
Just so you know, the whole place is like a palace. It is a five star hotel at its finest. With it's beautiful lobby, dining area, beautiful grounds, excellent services, fantastic architecture and sceneries and etc. You can find horses everywhere in this hotel! Very classic. And the rooms are spacious and opens up to a view of the pool and a lake. =)
The Grand Salon Lobby Lounge has a majestically designed architecture which overlooking a scenic lake. It has a cozy atmosphere where you can enjoy light music and evening cocktails or maybe mocktails. hehe. There were also energetic live band performance available every night. But I don't really enjoy the music they served that night. Suara tak sedap pun. huhu ;p
By the time we got back to our room, it was already midnight. I was really tired (driving for hours and stucked in traffic jams, walk in high heels with my super overweight bags around me and etc). So I just wanna take my bath and just sleep. But I can't. I have another assignment that needs to be done cuz I need to submit it on Saturday. It was Commercial Law. Sigh.
God knows how much I hate reading the cases. Don't really understand them. haha. But anyway, I managed to get it done at around 3 am with the help of my Guara Red coffee! Really nice, I tell u! =)
After finishing my assignment, I dozed off peacefully..
The next morning, after we had our breakfast (no picture. too sleepy and tired to take photos! hehe), we didn't do anything much. Just sit in the room while watching tv..and waiting for Girl to turn up..
So after Girl arrived, we got ourselves ready. We planned to take the shuttle bus to Bintang Walk, but it was fully booked. Thus, I decided to drive to KL. (And stuck in traffic jams, again! haihh).
Anyways, we had our lunch at Manhattan Fish Market. I was craving for their Sweet Alabama smoothie and their seafood platter! It was meant for sharing. So I treat them. And boy.. it was yummyyy!!! =)
We spent quite some time at the MFM. We had our usual talk and the usual lawak bodoh and stuff. Oh btw, Girl took a video of me while I was telling them a story. Gosh. I looked really terrible when I am blabbering. haha. So weird and funny. And sooo mak kepoh.
Haih.. Never knew I am such a kepochi! haha =P
After we've done eating, we planned to go to the Taman Rama-Rama, or Zoo Negara or any other taman that is available in KL. But it was raining heavily. So we couldn't go anywhere outdoor. sob sob..
I refused to go to any malls cuz I don't want to end up buying things I don't need! (I want to save my money for other things now! Not the itsy bitsy stuff! I had more than enough already!)
But eventually, after planning and discussing where we want to head next, at last Girl made a decision to go to Mid Val to play bowling at Cosmic Bowl.
Oh gosh.. We're heading to a mall?
Fyi, shopping mall is my weakness. Every month I will try to avoid going to the mall as much as possible. Cuz when I stepped into a mall, my heart melts and weakens. And I can just forget about anything and everything. I just loved everything in a shopping mall! hehe =P
So, whenever I see something attractive that caught my eyes, I get really really excited. And the moment when I stepped into Mid Val's centre court, I saw M.A.C was having an event and their theme was Hello Kitty. There were so many cute outfits! I love their staffs outfits especially! The big bow that the M.A.C girls was wearing was really really cute. I feel like owning one la.. heh.
I was checking out people's outfits and what promotion they have and that's when a promoter came to me and said, "Would you like to have a free makeover?"
I was like.. For real??! M.A.C? hmm.. I don't really dig M.A.C's products, btw. They're too common for me. huhu =P
But, who would want to give you a free makeover right? So of course I accepted the offer. =)
I already told myself not to buy ANYTHING at all, before she even applied any makeup on me or listen to what she's gonna promote, cuz I really really don't need ANY makeup right now. Plus, I don't like the colors of that Hello Kitty palette. But being me, who can't say no to people.. and cepat kesian kat org, after she promotes this and that, I felt guilty for not buying anything from her. So at last, I settled for lipstick and eyeshadow.
However, when I walked out of the M.A.C store, I got really upset with myself. Cuz I break my own rules. I don't want to buy that freakin' eyeshadow and lipstick. Dunno why the hell I purchased them. Heesh. Well, the colors fine. Just that, I already have something similar to that. Plus it's M.A.C! I never liked M.A.C products! Why the hell did I purchased it anyway? haih... Nevermind. I'll sell it later.
So after that, we played bowling at Cosmic Bowl. It was my first time there. The place looked like a night club. Techno music was blaring so loud and there were night club lights. Oh, and it's a glow-in-the-dark concept along the bowling alley and the whole area too.
After bowling, we had our not so late night coffee at Starbucks to have a lil' chat. It was Girl's treat! (cuz she won! hehe. Thanks Girlie.)
We had our dinner at mamak. After that, balik hotel.. But before that, took some pictures with the kuda2 dulu.. hehe ;)
The next morning, which was Sunday.. Girl ajak swim.. But I saw people riding bikes too.. So I wanted to cycle as well! =)
After we've done swimming.. and lumba sape boleh selam lame2 (which is of course, me! hehe).. so then kitorang naik atas and kemas baju and stuff.. Time to check out.. sob sob =(
Ok that's all!! =)
Overall, the 3 days and 2 nights stay was really wonderful. Especially when you have your bestfriends around you! =)
THANK YOU DADDIE.
