What to do over the long weekend? Drive out of town is out of the question as I didn’t want to join in and contribute to the already so jam-ded roads..I thought of baking and using up all my almost close to expiry date flour and sugar etc…but was too
lazy busy doing nothing! Then I thought of what my friend was going to do, checking in a local resort just to chill out for one night! Where else is close to home, quiet and peaceful and a great place to relax? We packed our bags to join my friend at the Putrajaya Shangrila. I didn’t double check what type of package they gave to us and just took the room!
The room was very nice, forgot to take photos of the bathroom. It was close to the pool and has a very good view of the Putrajaya township. The room came with breakfast for 2, Kieran was over the free meal age but they were being nice and
forgot didn’t charge for his meal. The room came with free broadband access which was excellent for me! Later I found out that my room rate was slightly more expensive than my friend’s package and on top of that, she got the free tickets for the boat ride free and I didn’t! So she gave them to me and we brought the kids out on the sampan boat. This boat ride is not cheap ok, RM20.00 per adult (we didn’t have to pay la..since we got the tickets) and kids we had to pay RM12.00 and the 2nd kid at RM2.00. There was another bigger boat which is more expensive charging at RM30.00 for adults and RM15 for kids. Quite expensive lor…if not for the complimentary tickets I wouldn’t have gone for it!
The kids enjoyed and I was busy taking photos of the buildings around the lake as you can see in the slide above. There were many more big big houses along the lake shore which I didn’t get good pictures of. Like so resort feel lor..
Anyway, our package allowed late check-out at 6 pm but we didn’t hang around too late since it was going to rain, so we left about 4.30p.m. The kids were so reluctant to leave and kept saying they wanted to swim again! They went swimming the moment we checked in, and the next day they swam first thing in the morning, then after breakfast, then after they came back from the boat ride! Kylie got a tan and is darker now but Kieran remained pale as ever!! Gosh…so unhealthy!
Definitely will go there again…I reckon is more healthy then going shopping, as I think I will spend more on shopping than this! Correct or not???
