Mom's Sleep Over in A Resort



SM gave me one night stay in Corus Paradise Resort PD as one of my birthday gifts and I decided to share this gift with Mom.

So, yesterday, off we set to PD. Thank you SM & KC for making your car available for me to use.. :0...

Mom was excited cos it has been some time since she last stayed in the hotel. The last time was perhaps in 2001 when I moved down to JB. I was working then. The company gave me 2 weeks off as relocation leave ... to look for a house and to relocate. Meanwhile, I was able to stay in the hotel during this time. I remember bringing Mom and SM's maid with me .. the maid to clean and wash my house ... we stayed in Blue Wave.

The resort was quite impressive from the outside (as usual). I love the in build "waterfall" .... have always love the sound of water .. it makes the whole place cooling .... I did not know that there was lift available .. so I made Mom climb down 3 flight of stairway ... it was a challenge for her. But she said ... just consider it like an exercise ...

The room was a little small for me but the view that we get is pretty good - pretty scenic. As usual, the maintenance and service of this place is lousy. The front office gals are not well trained. The floor of the room was dirty .... my feet was black! Wondered when was the last time they mopped the floor.

I ordered for twin sharing and Mom suggested that we should phone CK to join us ... since there is enough beds to sleep on - 2 queen size beds. Faint! As if CK does not need to work and KL is just 30mins away!!! and I certainly do not want to share my bed !! :0 ...

We rested in the afternoon in the room - it was too hot too go out ... in the evening, we explored PD town .... its almost like Sitiawan .. small ... with The Store and Billion .... perhaps Sitiawan may be bigger .... we had dinner in Station Kopitiam ... Mom loves teh tarik and ordered her favorite beef rice. She finished the whole plate!

We were back in the hotel just in time for me to catch the sunset ... and I quickly clicked away ....

The aircon was turned to 27 since Mom is afraid of cold ... I slept like a dead log but Mom did not sleep well .... hahaha ... so much for sleeping in the hotel. She blame the beef rice -- too heaty ... but I would say that she miss her bed .... :0

In the morning, Mom was all set to go back. She showered at 6am, packed and all ready by 830am and woke me up. She loved the buffet breakfast and insisted that I should take photo of her standing next to the swimming pool! Ai ya ... wat else .. to show off la... but I have to say that Mom loves the camera! Hahhaha .... anyway ... we took quite a lot of shots ....

When we came home, Mom was so tired cos did not sleep well the night before ... she actually slept from 2-630pm!!!

Net2 .... it was quite an OK trip.... the only thing that I wish I could do was to walk along the beach ... and enjoy the breeze and sound of the waves ... didn't manage to do that as Mom cant walk too much. But the view from the room was good enough .... :0 ...
