After a S$30 million refurbishment, the former Paramount Hotel and Shopping Centre was rebranded Village Hotel Katong when Far East Hospitality took over operation in mid-February 2012. Was really excited and happy to go on a staycation there, somewhere out of the usual in a neighbourhood area. The 229-room Village Hotel Katong reflects the strong Peranakan heritage of the surrounding Katong and Joo Chiat district in Singapore which i personally quite like it ;) Was given a Club Room which is really spacious yet cosy enough.
Upon checking in to our wonderful hotel at Four Points by Sheraton and with the recommendation from the friendly staff, we took a cab arranged by the hotel to Straits Quay which is located not far from the hotel, approx. 10 mins drive to have our lunch. We settled down for lunch at PappaRich as it’s the only restaurant open with local food. Most of the restaurants there are selling western food, more like a chillax place with beer and wine.
WOOHOOO!!! Aug is coming soon and i’m so looking forward to it as first of all, the first day of AUG is my birthday, and i am going on 2 overseas trips!!! due to my annual ICT, i will be spending my birthday in camp instead, therefore i need to shift my birthday celebrations with my loved ones in advance. Special thanks to PARK ROYAL ON PICKERING as the venue sponsor for my [RELAJARSE] (read from the pic above for the meaning) birthday party with my BBFs and also TAWIAN BEER for the wondering fruit beer which all of use loved it so much! :D SO.. are you ready to check out how much fun we had and the awesome rooms at parkroyal on pickering?!
June was one of the month that im looking forward to as i’m finally flying off once again on a holiday since my last trip in sept last year. Other than that, it’s also the first time i’m heading to Taipei to catch my favourite group S.H.E comeback concert and most importantly with my ambloves! :D In this entry, i’m introducing you VIA HOTEL that we stayed at. It’s a pretty new hotel located in the heart of Xi Men Ding and it’s actually quite good leh! Here’s my room throughout the stay :)
Advertorial I was having dinner with a few friends the other day and one of them asked me : “Hey! You seems to be leading a very happening lifestyle hor~ see you always eat good food, go travel, go for staycations and all. How do you manage to stay so positive ah? You seem so stress-free!” Hahaha~ I burst out laughing after hearing his question. Come on, seriously, who can stay positive and stress-free all the time? Every single one of us will have ups and downs in our lives, but it’s about how you manage it. In order to cope, some people resort to clubbing, drinking, or even worse, take DRUGS! The 2 most common drugs that people take are Ice and Heroin. I seriously have no idea what it gives you by taking them. Maybe it will make you feel happy, excited and worry free? Maybe after taking these drugs, all your problems will be solved, all your worries will be gone and you will lead a happier life? NO! These drugs cannot …
I Love Staycation! especially when everything is FREE (other than the money you pay for the room)!!! I’ve been hearing people saying about how great it is to go on a staycation at Quincy Hotel as everything is inclusive in the amount you pay for your room. You get free breakfast, lunch dinner and mini bar too! So we decided to make us of the holiday in may (vesak day) and experience it for ourselves :D
Sponsored Review What do you look for when coming to accommodation during your travel trips? I am sure most people goes for hotels right? Hotels can be rather pricey at times and if you are travelling alone or with a partner and would like to look for another alternative at a cheaper price, i guess a hostel will be good for you. Usually the first impression of a hostel will be very budget, very run down, not well maintained, have to share rooms with others etc, which is true as i have that impression too when it comes to hostel. BUT! after i went for my staycation at 5footway.inn Project Boat Quay, im quite impressed and that totally change my impression of a hostel.
Coming to the last entry of my 3D2N Staycation at Equarius Hotel. Read my Part 01 and 02 and check out how much fun we had with the facilities in the hotel and Universal Studios Singapore~! For our last day at the hotel, after breakfast, we rest for a while in the room before heading down to the pool again to enjoy the sun, the water, the last few hours of our stay.
Following on my day 1 at equarius hotel, today is the day that all of us are super excited about as we are heading to Universal Studios Singapore!!! finally like a dream come true for me as i always wanted to visit the theme park because one of the ride that i wanna go on is the Jurassic park water raft ride. You may not know this but i’m actually quite a big fan of jurassic park ahahaha~ one of the best movies that i will not get tired watching again and again. Okay enough said, here’s a pic that i took when i woke up in the morning from our balcony ;) CHIO right?!
Special thanks to Gardens by the bay for the invitation, i finally managed to visit this beautiful garden located just right behind marina bay sands! was there early to go on a tour around gardens by the bay as most of the other gardens by the bay official bloggers had already went for their tour. Was to busy and didn’t get to attend for the past few events, so this time round, no matter what i must definitely go for it! It’s really a very good location for taking photos! everything seems soo surreal!
I’ve always wanted to hold a mini party in a nice hotel room with my loved ones the past few years, but due to budget constraint, i didn’t manage to do so. Finally this year i can have one party held in a hotel room! :D something im looking forward to and pretty excited about ;) Theme for the party was decided ard 2 months ago, which is “Party Like A Kpop Star” and in order to fit into this theme, i decided to book a room at Hard Rock Hotel ;) totally fit into the theme right? Right after deciding on the venue, we need some food to go along right? SO~~ i catered PERKIES for the party since all my friends loved it! :D *ps: we’ve been craving for it ever since the last time we tried it a few months ago~ Alright! So we have everything settled, the day for the party finally arrived!
Celebrate Easter with you families and friends this year at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport as they’ve lined up a whole lot of activities for you ranging from food to staycation! :D
Was invited by AsiaRooms for a mini gathering party with a few bloggers at Klapsons Hotel last week, whereby we get to mingle ard, play games, massage, manicure and alot more!
