The life-changing staycation @ Hotel Michael, Sentosa

1:00 PM , 2 Comments

Some would have known by now that the last staycation was lifechanging in the literal sense rather than the hotel itself. Nonetheless, here's a pictorial attempt at the most talked about Traveller's Choice Hotel of 2012.

way

The walkway from the carpark that links to most hotels except Equarius.

I have been quite curious about the string of hotels at Resorts World and Hotel Michael has had much said about their award winning designs....not. I thought the lobby was disappointing, more so the rooms that had expensive fixtures but space was not fully utilised within the room. The bed was incredibly comfortable but the pillows were a dampener.

roses

Flowers arranged by the hotel which comes at a surcharge - no champagne nor scattering of rose petals even. How mercenary, Resorts World.

engaged

And then it was a yes. :) It has been a whirlwind of emotions since then and plenty of things to plan. It honestly did not dawn on me till the next morning that the next chapter was real. We could plan for the most perfect proposal, moment or ring even but all it actually needs is a sincere heart. Heartfelt and intimate, we both would remember that moment for the rest of our lives.While on hindsight a restaurant could have made it more pompous but it was suffice for me. :)

Should I just start one called theweddingchapter?

Here's a tour of their hotel room!

Incredibly comfy bed but pillows were causing some discomfort.

Tongue in cheek muses.

The couch we loved!

view

Cheated of a sea view.

Leonardo DaVinci not but I was really interested in just the apple.

The rest of Resorts World celebrating my anniversary with me too!

And coincidentally or not, we had breakfast at Toastbox the next morning at the Vivocity outlet with a collaboration with Thye Moh Chan for wedding pastries. Perhaps they are going the way of G.O.D. and their heritage tie ups - I am so loving it! Just to sidetrack, prices of ToastBox RWS is expectedly pricier, 10-20% premium across so then the free rail pass we got saved us some moolah!

wedding

Pose-worthy props!
