KUANTAN TRIP - DAY 1

22 MAY 2010, SATURDAY
SWISS-GARDEN RESORT & SPA KUANTAN



We started our journey to Kuantan at about 11:30am after Kit boy has attended his weekly MusikGarten class from 10:00am to 10:30am on every Saturday. Together with 婆婆, we are going for a short 3 days 2 nights trip to Kuantan and will be staying in Swiss-Garden Resort & Spa Kuantan for free. As an employee working in one of the group subsidiaries, Mommy is entitled to a 3 days 2 nights stay in any one of the group hotels (prior to the Management approval and subject to availability of rooms) once a year and this is the first time that Mommy is exercising her benefits after being with the company for almost six-and-a-half years.



Back to our trip, after driving for about 3 hours, we finally reached Kuantan and came out from the Kuantan Exit. We then drove straight to the resort based on our one and only Kuantan map that we have. We arrived at the resort at about 4:00pm and without wasting much time, Mommy went to check-in with the piece of Confirmation Slip at the Swiss-Care counter located right behind the front office.

We were given Room No. 8323 located at Level 3. The said room is quite spacious with two single beds but because there are three of us, Mommy has requested for an extra bed during check-in for 婆婆 at RM30.00 per night.



By the time we settled down and taken our hot shower, it was already almost 5:30pm. Daddy suggested going for early dinner instead of going into the pool as earlier planned. We had our dinner at Pak Su Seafood Restaurant Sdn. Bhd. which is highly recommended by Mommy's colleagues.

After running thru the menu, Daddy ordered some of their signature dishes as recommended by the waiter; mainly seafood. There were not many patron at that point of time and therefore, we only waited for a short while before the yummylicious foods were served...


....and here are what we have tried on the first day.




What attracts Mommy the most is their sea view at the back of the restaurant but what fascinated my boy were those crabs, prawns and fishes swimming lively in the tanks placed next to the entrance. He doesn't want to be seated at the table and refused to take in (eat) anything despite having a 'big' glass of orange juice with ICE in front of him. We really had a tough time dealing with this little fella because all he wanted was just to stand right in front of those tanks. So ended up, we have to take turns to finish our meal.




We returned to the resort after dinner and lingered around at the hotel lobby that was romantically lit up with dim warm lights that feels so relax and comfortable. Even though our boy is still full of energy jumping and happily running all around the lobby but we only stayed put for a very short while and went back to our room after Mommy has taken a few shots as Daddy really needs to have a good rest after driving for almost four hours. And that ends the first day of our Kuantan trip.
