Our Weekend Getaway

We went for a 2D1N weekend getaway in the Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel in KL last weekend. After postponing the stay a few times earlier due to daddy's busy-ness, we finally made it there on Saturday (29 Oct).

I love hotel stays!

The lobby of the hotel looked quite impressive

Daddy bought the hotel package early this year (we still have another night's stay in the Holiday Inn Glenmarie)

The room was pleasant and cosy

After checking-in to the room, we did not go anywhere but spent the whole day relaxing there. We buried ourselves in books, watched tv and stuffed ourselves silly with biscuits, msg-free potato chips and fruits brought from home. I also brought along my homework bag and kept myself very busy with homework :)

Dunno what motivated me so much... I spent HOURS doing homework (workbooks) quietly by myself in the hotel room!

Playtime with daddy dearest *so happy*

Wheeeeeeeeee!

I kept pestering mummy for a bubble bath! (We scrapped the idea of going swimming because the hotel did not have a children's wading pool!)

At 7pm sharp, we went for the BBQ Seafood-Night Rendezvous buffet dinner at the Planters' Inn

Some of the scrumptious spread

I was very hungry and walloped everything on these two plates... plus some desserts too

Some of the food that daddy and mummy took... they enjoyed the dinner very much!

While daddy and mummy spent 2.5 hours eating to their hearts' content, I just waited patiently... I was bored to tears *yawn* but I did not complain or hurry them until they were ready to leave hehe!

Desserts

Burning the midnight oil... Back at the room, after dinner and before bedtime, I continued to do my homework... without being told to :)

The following day, we had lunch at the Planters' Inn again to be eligible for the complimentary cake. We ordered and shared two Japanese rice sets with grilled salmon. 

Our simple, healthy and yummy rice sets , also served with fresh fruits (not in the picture)

Delicious grilled salmon

A clown made this for me!

We finally got the cake! It looked big and felt rather heavy too...

It was "upgraded" to a 2kg Black Forest cake. Quite yummy but a tad too sweet... we brought it back to Mah-mah's house to share it with the rest of our family members :)
