We didn’t really get to do a big celebration (Peringkat Jenjarom) for my birthday in August due to my semester exams. So we went for Hi Tea instead last weekend to lump in both August & September babies celebration.
Checked in Putrajaya Marriot Hotel
I wanted to splurge and pamper myself. So I booked a room at this 5 star hotel with free breakfast for two. It had the usual amenities expected from this high end abode . There’s FREE WIFI, complimentary beverages, good entertainment, luxurious looking toileteries, a bathtub, a Super King bed, a sofa (fit for Ee) and a beautiful view. The receptionist was super helpful too. Said he was from Batu Berendam.
Price per night from it’s own website : RM225/night.
It was a very big room. After the husband and kids retired to bed, I soaked myself in the tub using the Doterra Spa Bodywash. I even put on Spotify in the bathroom for ambience. I enjoyed the view and the late night brew.
The next morning we had breakfast at The Zest, the house restaurant. Ee’s rate was originally RM28 ( children) but being the house guest, he had a 30% discount. Hence, I spent only RM19.80 for his breakfast and it was a buffet! The spread was wonderful and tasty although husband said there was something wrong with the pastries that morning. A bit hard he said.
I wish I had more days off to just enjoy the hotel facilities and cafes. Alas, I have other matters to attend to. We checked out at 11 am the next day and I bought the birthday cake from Marriot’s in house cafe – The Oracle. It was an RM88 Orange Chocolate mousse cake yang tak sedap. So, jangan beli. Ha ha ha.
Hi Tea at Movenpick Hotel
Movenpick sounds very English. Hakikatnya, it is hotel tabung haji yang posh. We had a reservation for the Birthday Hi Tea at Temasya Restaurant. Although the selections were not huge, the readily available options were delicious enough. The Hi-Tea was served buffet style. Husband loved the Beriani. I loved the spaghetti, lamb, satay and well, almost everything.
Except maybe the desserts. Ada lain macam skit rasa jelly dia.
My sister, Nora and youngest brother, Matin enlisted the help of Shuke2 Planner to decorate our table. They also coordinated with the staff of Temasya Restaurant to sing the Happy Birthday song to my dad. What I did not expect was that I received a surprise chocolate bouquet as well! I was so not camera-ready as I did not have any makeup on and that my tudung is so kedut2. Damn those surprises.. although I secretly loved it.
Nora gave me a set of Mary Kay Hand Care set which I absolutely loved. It’s quite a routine just for your hands but I love the fragrance. I also received my backdated order of my MK feet lotion which emanates this minty sensation to it. My brothers gave me a chocolate bouquet and my mom gifted me a set of telekung with purple sejadah. Dad paid for the hi-tea. Ha ha ha.
The celebration does not end there as there are a few social engagements coming up. Lol.
- November : Tok Teb, Matin & Ninie birthdays
- December : Ee & Adils’ birthday, my 10th year wedding anniversary, KIV gender reveal party by Aunty L (Nora).
Until then, let’s doa for good health, good life and a world of happiness.
