Sentosa Staycation CNY 2016

We did a staycation at Sentosa (again!). The last time we were here was during my last trimester when I was expecting Ezra in 2014. So it has been some time! It was quite a last minute one. Happened to see Hotel Michael going for quite a good rate the week before CNY, so just booked immediately! Something to look forward to for CNY! Those who know me will know that CNY is one of my least favourite times of the year!

This is our first time staying at Hotel Michael. The hotel is quite nice and comfortable and it was quite a pleasant stay. Since it was part of Resorts World, we also took the chance to visit the Hard Rock pool. First time too …..and it’s quite nice.

We had dinner at Slappy Cakes at Resorts World. Daniel had fun making his own pancakes of different shapes.

We planned to go USS the next day. Unfortunately, it was raining heavily and we had to change our plans. Daniel was really disappointed. Me too actually. We had already gotten to the Resorts World Invites membership and would be getting the USS 6 month pass. After doing our sums, figured this would be most worthwhile cos a one-time ticket is so costly, might as well top a bit to make it a 6 month pass which gives you unlimited excess for 6 months to USS. We plan to go at least 3-4 times to make our money worthwhile.

Anyway, we spent the day checking out the CNY festivities at Sentosa and also headed to Vivocity for lunch and Daniel did paddle boat at Vivocity too.

The rain was a bit of a let down, but as always, we enjoy our Sentosa staycations 🙂




CNY 2015 Extended Family Getaway to KL

This is a late post on our CNY family trip to KL. CNY 2015 is the first CNY I have spent away from home and from Singapore.

With our parents and siblings, we spent the entire first 4 days of CNY in Kuala Lumpur. We drove up in a 3 car convoy.

We booked One World hotel as it was conveniently located just next to 1Utama megamall. This is our first both sides combined family trip with everyone in attendance! This is also baby Ezra’s first trip! Thankfully he did not fuss too much during the long drive up.

It was an enjoyable short holiday. The hotel was really great and I really liked the megamall. With a baby in tow, it was quite hard to cover much ground shopping. Most of the time, we ended up going back to the nursing room at Isetan! Wish there was more time to shop! I like shopping in Malaysia better as they carry so much more brands. Not just international brands but local brands too. I managed to buy 2 pairs of shoes from U.R.S… of my favourite shoe brands which is almost entirely gone in Singapore.

We spent a day at Sunway Lagoon too. Daniel enjoyed himself the most! He loved the water rides!
