Staycation at Fairmont Hotel & Resort

Hello readers! I am here to update my recent staycation at Fairmont hotel and resort with JJ & JY.
It was a random idea for us to book the hotel for a staycation especially i have been working in this hotel everyday, looking at the rooms everyday. JY works in the same hotel as me but she has been working at the front desk so she don't really get a chance to see how the rooms looks like so we decided to stay one night since we are able to book it at the staff rate!

I guess the occupancy was not full on our day of check in and we were able to stay at the high floor.

While it looks really beautiful especially at night for this view, but i have been seeing it everyday whenever i am on night shift so it became the norm for me.

 There are two tower in this hotel, the north and south, so we were staying at the north tower.
North tower room are generally bigger but the reno could be outdated compared to the south tower.
 Complimentary chocolates for us when we check in to our room.

We have also requested for an extra bed so that JJ could sleep on the extra bed instead on the carpet.
As i was working on the morning shift, so they check in first before i went up to the room to find them. We headed out to Marina square for dinner in the evening and went to this Mr Curry restaurant.

After our dinner, we wanted to watch a movie, but there weren't any good ones so we decided to play pool! Everyone became busy after we graduated so it was rare that we could hang out during our poly days.

We decided to buy some snacks back to the hotel in case we were hungry in the middle of the night. JY was going for the SIA recruitment of cabin crew the next day, previously she was lacking self confidence as she feel that she might not be able to get in the strict selection process of the crews but i was encouraging her because i feel that everyone should try at least once before they will know if they are able to succeed. Even if you didn't manage to get in, at least you have tried. What is the worst scenario if you didn't get in? You don't get to become a cabin crew loh. But that's not the end of the world. If one is passionate about it, they will try over and over again until they succeed, because success doesn't come easy.

So, she decided to go for it. I help to do her makeup the next day too! We was chatting throughout the night and they was up by 6.30am, i told them t The next day, i was lazing in the bed and told them to go ahead for their preparation and breakfast but both of them was trying to get me out of the bed to go down for breakfast. Die die insist i must go down with them to have breakfast. Tsk. But it was so funny when JY was telling JJ that 'she will scold us later at Twitter for getting her to wake up and go for breakfast with us'

So, i did went down for breakfast with them afterall. 

After our breakfast, we went back and JY was preparing for her interview and Poon, and Jieying two other colleague came over to our room as they were staying in the hotel to prepare for the SIA recruitment day. I wanted to accompany her but since she has their company so i didn't go ahead with her. I was helping her to match what she can wear, her hairdo and bought her some eyelashes to enhance her makeup.

After the interview, she send me a text message that she has passed the first round!
Hopefully she get a chance to pass the remaining rounds!

Shall end this post for now.
Till then.

My 21st Birthday Party @Treehouse villa, PART 2

Hello readers! So here goes, my 21st birthday party celebration post part 2.
This purple banner was given to me by Kraven on the day of my party, i wanted a backdrop to take photos but i was lazy during all the preparation until Kraven was being totally random and called me when i was doing my hair at the salon one day and ask if i would like to get one as she can help me to do the banner which i was more than happy to say 'Yes i want!' So i send her a few favourite photos of myself before she get her staff to print it on the banner as her family run the printing business.
Thanks for giving this to me for free too!

As mentioned in my previous post, we checked in to Treehouse villa on friday and the party was on saturday, so mummy and olm woke up early morning to start preparing some of the foods required for the BBQ, my cousins came over to stay too and everyone was helping to blow all the balloons for the decor. Especially, Qianci, Elliott and his gf.

I was getting busy by afternoon as most of my friends was trying to check with me the exact location as they was reaching the place but couldn't find the exact location. 

 This was my guestbook for my friends to sign at the party
My first few guests was Michelle and her bf, Jeant, Zaiwei, Brant & Yong seng. It was still early before everyone turned up at the party, so Michelle and i went to the garden area to take some photos! Before that we took some polaroid shots photo to hang at one of the corner. 

My makeup was done by Kai. Thank god he managed to reached on time!

 Michelle's bf help to take photos for us as our photographer. Haha

 Some candid shots.

It was not long before i went back to our unit as my mum called me to inform me that the catering is here for the set up, I ordered for 30 pax as i was not sure the actual number of turn-outs as i was afraid most of my friends might not turned up so i thought 30 pax was a safe number since we had tons of BBQ foods as well. 
Buffet setup done!

I ordered Neo Garden catering as they was well known for their quality of the good. The actual turnout was higher than what i had expected, foods was running out fast when my guests start arriving, i didn't even had much time to eat because i was busy running around, checking on my friend and ensuring everyone don't feel too awkward during the party. As i had many different small clique of friends attending my party but there's only me.

I was feeling apologetic to Jean and Zaiwei as i couldn't entertain everyone during the party especially when all my friends came at different timing.

Sammie, Keeteng,Kraven,Karin and Jiayee attended my party.
they was so funny when i saw them standing outside the unit but they didn't enter because they was not sure if they got the correct unit as it was really very crowded at that time.

 Posing for a group photo!
