As usual, I had my itineraries all planned out for the trip too!
Quick! Call me a Planning Guru~ Wahahahahaha
So, the tasks for the trip are as follows :-
- Curry Fish Head for Le Hubby (coz the previous time I went with my colleagues so Le Hubby said he want to try this time round too.)
- Café Hopping
- Get the Banana Cakes for Family (hopefully the Coconut buns are available for Le Hubby too.)
- K-boxing (If time allows)
- Nuas in our hotel room~
Notice that we have identical sandals? hehe.
We managed to make it passed this crowd in a short period of time. Phew.
Do not worry. The time needed to cross the customs are already calculated into my itineraries.
As we walked towards the street where most of the cafes were, we came across this Chinese restaurant.
So, we thoought of giving them a try.
It was only we finished then I realized this was actually the famous Herbal Duck restaurant.

Bought Coconut, Otah and Red Bean Bun this time round.

Time for some tips*
Whenever booking a staycation as a couple, do indicate in the special remark that it is for your Anniversary. You may get some freebies or special treatment for your stay!
I mean, come on~ who doesn't like freebies.
I decided to stay at KSL because there's Massage Parlour, Karaoke, Cinema and Shopping all in one same building! Save all the trouble of travelling around~ So smart right?
The more the better! HAHA!
Finally, Massage time!
