I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post. And, I can’t believe little one is growing up so fast. Time flies (sob…sob). It was just like yesterday the Dr plopped her onto my chest after going thru 15 mins of pushing (I’m so thankful it was a short and pain free labor – Epidural is AWESOME ! ** please Don’t judge me ! ;p).
We took a little mini weekend getaway to KL recently. It was my cousin’s wedding and the thought of fighting the KL traffic on Saturday night with a toddler is no fun. So, I convinced hubby that it would make more sense to stay over in KL for a night.
After checking around for a suitable location – it has to be near the wedding dinner location at a reasonable price. I was pleasantly surprise that Ascott was having some sort of hot deal and the price for a Premier 2 bedroom (with breakfast for 4 person) come up to about MYR 865nett. Since it was a little getaway for us, we decided to splurge a bit.
Hubby hate traveling (with me) since he claim it always feel like he’s bringing the whole house with us when we travel with LO. Yes – I’m an OCD mummy. So, I can be quite extreme when packing.
The apartment was beautifully decorated and clean!!! Cleanliness is very important for me when I book a hotel. Having a kitchen is really useful especially for preparing LO’s porridge. I love green decor!
We checked in around 12pm and I was famished. Hubby proposes we order room service. Tada – here’s what we order for 4. Interestingly, the food arrived in containers! It’s weird, but I actually love it. It gives me the impression the food is well covered and clean. I washed up the containers and recycle it.
I also love the bed! It was so nice and soft but still has good support. Our master bedroom has a little balcony which you can walk out and enjoy the view of (ONE side) Twin tower. LO loves standing at the window looking out. Probably because this is the first time she’s been on a high rise building.
The only gripe I have is the toilet doesn’t seem to flush well as it sort of gives the toilet a bad smell. I was so looking forward to enjoying the beautiful bathtub. But, soaking inside a stinking toilet …? Luckily, the other toilet was ok.
Their swimming pool is on the roof top at Level 22. The view up there is beautiful. You can see the KLCC garden and water fountain. The children’s pool is located at a hidden corner. We brought her to go swimming around 5pm and it was good that that area was shaded from the sun. It was definitely a nice size baby pool, with 2 steps level. Unfortunately, I don’t have any nice photo of the baby pool. I manage to grab 2 pictures of the adult pool from their online website… So nice, right?!
Breakfast selection in the morning was a wee bit slim. I’m not surprise since they charge about RM18++ / person? We decided to have a quick bite and then head back to the apartment to rest and pack.
It was a great mini getaway. Can’t wait to do another one.
