Perfect Bed and Perfect Pint Challenge @ G Hotel Gurney Penang

Going to share with you guys about my fun and excited experience of Perfect Bed and Perfect Pint Challenge I had awhile ago at G Hotel Gurney, Penang. Thanks G Hotel Gurney for the invitation. This event was kind of unique and has amusing style of activity for us to get to know more of a hotel. So, keep reading =)

Our Perfect Bed Challenge was carried out in the G Suite, which is also known as the Honeymoon Suite at the hotel. In fact, G Suite is the highest room category in G Hotel Gurney for guests' ultimate luxury pampering. I was so grateful to have the opportunity to experience the hospitality and 5 star service that G Hotel offered to their guests, and get to know every furnitures and products that they use to ensure the comfort of the guests staying with them.
There are only two units of G Suite available. Both suites are encapsulated in an ultra chic and contemporary design, completed with a full set of amenities, such as Royal Platinum Serta mattresses, 65'' smart HD LED TV, Applelles eco-friendly toiletries, a lavish dressing room, and a scenic panoramic sea view.
Living room area with the 65'' smart HD LED TV where you can spend time with your loved one.
The bathroom is polished with European opulence with a fine touch of elegance and modernity.
And I really really love the bathroom features in this suite. 
Two stylish basins are provided for you and your loved one.
Standing shower and the toilet area are separated.
My favorite part here where the bathtub is next to window providing a lush sea view for extra relaxation. A tv screen is provided as well while you are soaking in for rejuvenation.
 Featuring the two stylish basins provided with Appelles eco-friendly toiletries.
On a site note: 
Wedding couples who signed up for the Stylish wedding package (RM1,488 nett per table of minimum 30 tables) and Passion wedding package (RM1,888 nett per table of minimum 30 tables) will get to enjoy the wedding night here in the G Suite after the wedding banquet. 

The spacious living room featuring a plush leather sofa and a dining table where wedding couples can also have the gate crashing ceremony there or to host the wedding guests for a pre- or post- wedding party. The living room extends to the outside of balcony area where you can enjoy the spectacular sea view.
Our Perfect Bed Challenge started with an introduction by Christina Tan (Director of Communications) and a demonstration of the bed making by Mr. Sharil Seman (Housekeeping Manager).
In this challenge, each of us will need to fold in the bedsheet, followed by putting up the duvet cover and duvet insert and finish up with 4 pillow cases correctly within the given challenging time of 15 minutes. Extra points will be given to the neatness of the overall bed making.
Thoughts after the challenge: I felt really exhausted even just making one bed and it wasn't even perfect! We got to know that each housekeeper needs to make minimum of 20 beds per day. I cannot even catch my breath after making only one bed, cannot imagine if I need to do 20 beds. *pengsan la* Housekeeper is not an easy job and every one of them deserve all our respect! 
After the rounds of bed making, we had our challenge continued at the Tree Bar for the Perfect Pint challenge. 
Tree Bar is now hotly-tipped as Penang's largest alfresco bar, which sits perfectly under an 80-year-old 'Albizia Saman' rain tree. The bar extended from 48 seating capacity to now 198 capacity, featuring a selection of beverages and bites.
 Comfortable bar top seating as well as conventional dining tables are offered her at Tree Bar. 
 I do recommended the food and snacks here at Tree Bar. Thanks for the chef who really did put effort in making the food.
Tree Bar operating hours:
Sunday - Thursday : 12pm - 1am
Friday and Saturday: 12pm - 2am
Happy Hour - But 1 free 1 promotion on all house pours from 12pm - 4pm
Beer price: 3 pints of beer from RM58 nett onwards (lowest price in town)
So, in this challenge, Mr. Danson Khaw (Assistant Outlet Manager) showed us his skills on pumping a perfect pint of beer with speed and accuracy. 
 Here you go the perfect pint of beer!
After the demonstration, it was our turn to pump the perfect pint of beer with only one given chance. Extra points were accorded for the showmanship while pumping the beer. 
Very nervous to pour my first pint of beer! 
Ta-daaa ---

Tying The Knot |【I SAID YES】

I SAID YES! to the person whom I dated for seven years and few months. Seven years was not simply just a number, but how we grew up together. For the past seven years, we experienced very short distance living in the same building but different blocks; having each other side by side every day for few years; then long distance without seeing each other for a one-whole year; back to short distance living in the same country but different cities; then again back to not-so-long distance which at least we can meet once a month or two. 

All the time that we spent together in the past are my most precious memories that will last forever. And my future wouldn't be perfect without him.

Valentine's Day Simple Makeup

Valentine's day is around the corner, and I think is a good time to post a makeup tutorial since I've been planning to do that for awhile! I am a person who don't really do heavy makeup, but rather a minimal and natural makeup that I am more comfortable with. So, today I am going to show you my simple Valentine's Day makeup look. I will be using products that can easily access from SASA Malaysia. I hope you enjoy reading my review of products and my makeup tutorial video.

Golden Chicken Chinese New Year Dinner at G Hotel, Penang

Jang Jang Jang... Chinese New Year 2017 is just one day away! I cannot believe how fast time flies and waits for no man. Without further ado, let us dive into the year of Rooster with an 8-course dinner offered at G Hotel, Penang. Whether you are celebrating with family and friends, or having appreciation treat to stuffs and business associates, here in G Hotel you can enjoy a month long celebration starting from the 15th January till 15th February 2017 for a scrumptious festive treat.
With the theme of Golden Chicken 2017, G Hotel has come up with three packages namely Happiness (RM1388), Prosperity (RM1488), and Longevity (RM1588) per table of 10 persons.
I was lucky to be invited to try on the premium package of all, the LONGEVITY package. Here;s the menu for the night.
All Golden Chicken packages are inclusive of free flow of Chinese Tea. It is applicable for private function room only with a minimum reservation of 3 tables of 10 persons.
Started with the New Year Fresh Salmon Yee Sang, we got to enjoy the tasty fresh salmon =) For this dish, I like the part that the sauce is not too sweet and you can taste each of the ingredients inside this Yee Sang.
Followed by the second dish - the Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Crab Meat and Dried Scallops.
In fact, you can request them to serve individually like below. Yum Yum Yum!
Wine is available upon request as well.
Then we got the Steamed Whole Chicken with Dried Oyster and Sea Moss served in aluminium foil. For each dish, you can request to serve individually as well =)
Followed by my favorite dish of the night - Fried Shell-less Prawn in Milk Curry Sauce. The prawn is very flavorful, fresh and easy to eat without the shell on! This dish is invented by Chef Kang where the shell is first being removed and the prawn is then marinated overnight before frying. So all of us can enjoy eating prawn with ease!
Then we have this Braised Sea Cucumber from Indonesia and Sea Asparagus from Chile with Broccoli. The vegetables are cooked to tender-crisp for every pleasing bites and complemented with the favorable sea cucumber, which is just the right combination.
Coming up we have the exquisite Steamed Cod Fish in Spicy Crispy Bean, which is my another favorite. Chinese New Year dinner is not complete without fish for the auspicious festive celebration. I am glad that this dish is cooked to the perfect level.
The last dish before dessert - the Fried Rice with Fresh Scallops and Prawn topped with Shredded Crispy Dhafa Fish. I like the crispy dhafa fish matches with the fried rice.
However, personally I think fried rice at this dinner session maybe a little simple? It would be great if they have rice in lotus leaf for this luxurious dinner.

Lastly, we have Sea Coconut with Fresh Ginseng Soup served along with Sesame Bun with Sweet Potato filling. These homemade desserts are definitely the perfect combination to end the dinner with a high note. I really like the sesame bun a lot. Wish they sell it separately =P
Enjoyed my dinner with all these people =)
Meanwhile, Taste Café in G Hotel Gurney and SPOON in G Hotel Kelawai are also offering Chinese New Year themed buffet lunch and dinner. Part of the menu include Alaskan Snow Crab on ice, Prawn in Chinese Cream Cheese Sauce, Hong Kong Style Roasted Duck, Baked Whole Fish with Panggang Sauce, and many other mouthwatering dishes available for you and your company.
