Check in to the hotel with wai meng and was greeted by the friendly staff over there! they brought me up to my room and i’m speechless when i entered the room…
they actually gave me a deluxe suite for my stay!
the washroom at the living room area.
welcome to my living room!
work desk area…
all kinds of sockets for your electrical appliances. so you need not worry if you didn’t bring any universal travel adapter with you! that’s very thoughtful of them :)

Fruits and wine prepared for us :)

Extremely comfortable bed!!! :D LOVED IT!
TV and DVD player available in the bed room as well!

not to worry if you forgot to bring along your toiletries as they provide them as well!
Some of the equipments available in the room…
iPod/iPhone Docking system with alarm clock function. great!!!
mm.. what happened when we’re hungry? there’s snacks, cup noodles, coffee, tea, drinks and chocolate at the mini bar in the room !
just when we’re enjoying the drinks and chocolates, someone rang the door bell and gave me this bag of goodies!
wee! i loved surprises! curious to know what’s in the paper bag?
There’s rubber duckling, rock candy, a mp3 player, car decal, stamp collectibles and vouchers!!! and did u spot the similarity in those items? they are all in green! which is the corporate identity colour for Holiday Inn! we’re really impressed with that !
Holiday Inn logo can be seen on the rock candy as well!
Car decal with a sleeve
Personalized Holiday Inn Local Stamps!
and lots of dining vouchers!!!
After settling down for awhile, we decided to explore around the hotel :) that’s the executive lounge at level 3.
Tandoor North Indian Restuarant…
which served authentic north indian cuisines :)
one thing that you’ll notice is that most of the installations in the hotel are decorated with flowers :)
Windows on the Park Cafe Restaurant…
Heard of the good reviews of their international buffet, but it’s a pity for us as the restuarant was fully booked, therefore we didn’t get to try out the buffet. BUT we promised ourselves to be back for their international buffet soon!
some wedding decoration for a newly web couple.. :)
next we went over to the roof top where the gym and swimming pool is located at.
we actually wanted to head over to the gym for a gym session but the room was too cosy that we decided to went back to our room and spend our afternoon there.
Totally love the sofa in the living room as it’s so comfortable. Couching on the sofa, reading magazine, with fruits and juices.. that’s the life i want! feeling extremely relaxed!!!
see! my friends loved it too!!
and here’s the view of the sunset from my bedroom…
and not forgetting to camwhore!~ hahaha~~
*warning : lots of self portraits below…!*
ok… enough of my camwhore pics ! lol~ we bathed and prepared to head out for dinner at orchard central. Location of the hotel was really good as it’s located along the busy shopping district of orchard road. within walking distance, we are able to reach shopping malls like centrepoint, orchard central, somerset 313 and further down to ngee ann city, paragon and ion orchard!
We brought back some tibits to the hotel for a mini party at night and not forgetting our main objective for the night was to take a picture for the Holiday Inn “Stay Together” Photo Contest!!!
We’ve brainstorm about it the night before and we decided to be alittle more creative… and i think our concept for the theme “Stay Together” was great! :D
These are the 2 photos that i’ll be submitting for the photo contest! hopefully we’ll get to win ourselves a trip overseas!! :D
and here’s some behind the scene shots :)
trying to act emo.. LOL!
We drink, we eat, we play and we had lots of fun!!!
Woke up the next day morning for my complimentary buffet breakfast at the executive lounge.
after breakfast, went back to my room and enjoyed our last few hours stay with holiday inn before we check out of the room at 2pm. Actual check out timing was 12pm but they are so nice to extend it to 2pm for us! :D
After checking out, received another surprise from them. They actually created this for me!!!
