Trip to JB - Part 1

Last Thursday, Elyssa and I tagged along when hubby went for a 3D, 2N business trip to Johor Bahru. Hubby's main objective was work, our main objective was to rest and relax at Thistle Hotel :)

We arrived at the hotel around 1pm. Hubby went straight off for his meeting while Elyssa and I went on with our "main objective" till dinner time...

I love the big bathroom window cos I can still keep an eye on her when I'm soaking in the bath tub :)

I had plenty of time to learn my Chinese!
I just love, love this book I bought from the recent Popular warehouse sale. My old way of learning chinese was good at the beginning but after a while, I got a little frustrated cos I kept forgetting the characters or got them a bit mixed up. This book is all about word/picture association (and breaking down the individual components of each character) to form a short little story. So by remembering the story, I get the characters crystal clear in my head. Yay!!! I'm pretty obsessed with the book at the moment!

For dinner, hubby had a work related dinner appointment, so Elyssa and I met up with my old uni friend. It was nice to catch up again! Plus, my jaw dropped a few times when I visited her new house. (let's see....guest room nicer than my master room, huge walk in and colour coordinated closet, 2 maids, 1 driver, state of the art cinema room with 6 fully reclinable sofas etc.... Oh Man, what a life!!!). It's like a different world, but no lar.... I think I'm happy with my humble little world :)

The next morning, after hubby went to work, Elyssa and I lazed around a bit then enjoyed a nice long buffet breakfast.

So your "main objective" was to soak in the bathtub all day? ;) Wish I could tag along like this too but my hubs hardly goes on any biz trips..

Sounds so relaxing! Is Thistle the old Hyatt? I recognise the coffee house :)

Adrine said...

Barbara - Ha ha! and yes, Thistle is nice :)

Irene - if it's me, I'll just be in the cinema room most of the time! I think Thistle is currently the best hotel in JB. Need to book the pool facing room tho.
About playtime, we'll be meeting up next week anyway. Then we can also set up the next, next playtime :)

Paik Ling - it definitely was! And yes, you're observant la(from just 2 photos). Thistle is the old Hyatt.

HL - Nice objective eh?? ;)
