Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

It is a special post today as I wrote about my birthday staycation at The Majestic Hotel. To be blunt, I am not the type who make a big deal out of birthday. I normally just go out for a simple dinner or a home cooked dinner with husband and things like that. A card by my husband, wishes from family and friends is already more than enough to make me happy.

Actually, my husband tend to forget many of my birthday before haha.. I used to sulk, then again I grew up wiser and just decide not to expect anything because it makes me happier that way. To my surprise, things turn out to be awesome when you did not expect.

That is life, just be grateful of what you currently have and Allah will give you more. Do you know exactly 1 year ago, I celebrate my birthday in ICU room waiting for my daughter to recover? In fact I spent 5 days crying hoping/begging that Allah will mercy my daughter. Never recalled being so weak before. I was dragged down to my knees. I am forever grateful for the love and encouragement poured by my love ones.

Today Sofea is 11 months and 1 day old. Mummy love you till the sun no longer shine and longer if I could.

To top it off, I got harassed publicly by my used-to-be-good-friend on the social media. I decided not to retaliate and trust in Allah’s power. If Allah bring me into the situation, he will bring me out of it. The experience is so impactful that it teaches me so much lesson. I tend to see clearer who are with us during the toughest time and of cause my true friends were revealed.

I am not going to discuss further on that, because everything happened for a reason and Allah is the greatest planner of all. Anyway here is a tip. If you facing a difficult situation in life, do start to count your blessing. Hang in there, put on lots of faith and things will get better. Trust me on this.

Move forward to current time. I am here writing about one of the best birthday celebration I ever had so far.  My husband and I went to The Majestic Hotel and it was simply amazing. I am grateful. My daughter on the other hand is having her own staycation with my family member. It was a 2d1n stay, in Junior Suite room. Wanna see?  Jom, let’s check it out!

As we checked in, our door was knocked. The Majestic Hotel even suprised me with a birthday cake. How thoughtful. Thank you for the arrangment, Vivien. You have made our day!

We dont have a proper bath tub at home (one day we will, amin!) and the moment I see the bath tub at The Majestic Hotel, I am so happy that my face is hurting out of smilling too much haha. Please excuse my “jakun-ness”. Cannot help it. We made a good use of the bath tub. I recall asking for bath salt refill haha.. Plus, I also bring this cupcake bath bomb that I have been keeping for special occasion. Do check out my video at the end of this post for the bath bomb footage hehe.. I personally love the black marble flooring and the huge mirror. ME-WANT-IT-AT-HOME-PLEASE.

The Bed is simply amazing. The pillow is just out of this world. I am tempted to ask the reception where do they buy their pillow and if it is for sale. It is one of the fluffiest pillow I have ever lay my head on and my husband agreed.

We get the chance to live exclusive lifestyle for a day. Wearing bathrobe in the living room and all that. Thanks to the music we really felt like we have been transported back to the 60’s.  I found out that it is actually Gold FM and our home is now playing Gold FM everyday by default haha.. The Majestic Hotel is renowned for their colonial era theme and I think they have done a great job at it. That is the thing about new experiences, you will be inspired to improvise your life. Even from as small as figuring out a new taste in music choice.

Time for dinner. We ordered room service and have a quiete  (okay maybe not so quiete haha) dinner together. We ordered the Tiffin and my husband ordered peperonni pizza. For the tiffin it actually include few dishes just like those old days of “mangkuk tingkat”. You can actually request for western, japanesse, curry or vegetarian set. We opt for the Western to jive with the pizza.

Our tummy is full and we are so happy inside out that we dooze off feeling top of this world. The next day, I woke up with the feeling of revive. Actually, the right word is rejuvenated. We head down to enjoy the breakfast.

Look at that, even the selection of tea’s is amazing. I spent a good 5 minutes deciding which tea to enjoy. haha One of the thing about me is, when I am given a choices of many good things, my brain will tend to funtion slower to absorb what is really happening.

Please excuse my blur face. Dont know to smile or to laugh or to cry out of happiness.

Vivien, came by to our table while we having breakfast with another suprise! Omg can you please dont like this???? I want to cry already~! She bring a nice bouquet of flowers and a freshly made waffle with candle on the middle of it.  My husband have been nothing but pure charm during our trip. Thanks love!

We are also treated with a complimentary late check out. Right after checking out, we went cruising all around The Majestic Hotel. This is where I get to see the famous Orchid Room with my own eyes. I always see it on my social media but that is my first time experiencing it. I hope one day, I will be able to own a green house as beautiful as that filled with flowers and have tea with my love ones all day.

image

We also went to check out the Smokers room. Such a beautiful themed room. You can see more of it in our video. My husband is so amused when he walk into the Smoke Room because the are picture of his high school on the wall. haha  We assumed it is becasue Victoria Instituition is one of those building that was built during colonial era so it goes with the whole colonial theme. What a beautiful country we live in huh? Filled with histories, that sometime even myself been taking for granted.

So ya, that is it for today. I hope you enjoy this post and hopefully it give you a little bit of insight incase you are in the mist of planning a birthday suprise or maybe a treat to a person you love. I decided not to publish the total cost as it is honestly above average. However, let me tell you one thing. The price justify the experience and to me it was priceless. If you want to know the exact costing you may pm me on my fb page or email me and I am more than happy to share with you on that in the event you need to do some sort of budgeting. Plus, dont forget to follow The Magestic Hotel on their social media site so you wont miss any promo.

Till next blogpost. Do check out the vlog I have made below. You get to see the  room tour and be apart of our adventure.  I wish all of you nothing but love, happiness and health. Because what ever we wish for others will be bouncing back to us. So, do wish everyone the best and more important of all… Stay strong as the best is yet to come!
