Family staycation at Festive Hotel

July 20, 2014

I always cherish the time spent together with my family because living in such an era where everyone is busy with their work and various commitments, sometimes it can be hard for all of us to find a time where everyone can get together.

Sometimes even a proper dinner together is hard to plan already, let alone staycation. Mainly because our dad works as a taxi driver and he's working the night shift, so usually when we came back from school (last time), he had already gone to work. And he used to work everyday except Wednesday, so it's really hard for us to have much time together. I think we couldn't thank him more than enough on how hard he worked to raise us up by himself since my mum is a housewife.

Now that we both have graduated, it's time for us to work hard and let him relax already. I've been saving up for my school fees to return back to him because it really cost a bomb ($24k++) and I think that it's my duty to pay for my school fess and not his. What I'm really happy about is that recently our family have been spending a lot more time together which is really awesome! Cause finally we are pretty free now on weekdays since we graduated and my dad also changed his off days from 1 day (Wednesday) to 2 days (Monday and Tuesday). Ran then suggested a staycation together since we love staycation so much hahaha, where he somehow can get a better deal for it at Festive Hotel, RWS. So off we go! :D

Then that's how the night ended with mum and dad staying for the third set of the live band, and me and Ran went back to the room to wash up after the second set hahaha. Mum is very hyper and excited even when she came back to the room telling us the band is really good. Tbh they are quite good lah. So the next day, upon checking out we went for lunch!

Lunch time with really bad service though, so I'm not gonna mention their name. >:(

I've always feel that making DIY pancakes is very lame hahaha. But since we are there, we must as well try. Like you know a family bonding session where we make pancakes together hahahaha. Gotten banana as our toppings!

The batter is buttermilk and the pancake just taste, normal. Hahaha.

I shall go have my dinner and head out to meet Zj for Starbucks. I seriously think Starbucks have the best marketing strategy ever. Now we are trying to get 8 drinks to get the mini Starbucks frap card hahaha. And if you notice some changes to my site, I've more to say on that but I'll leave that to tomorrow k. See you guys again in a bit, yes a bit hahahaha!
