Golden Palm Resort trip – 21 Dec 13

We left home at 5.30am and pick up Luxiang and Samuel before reaching the Tuas checkpoint at 6am. The jam has already started and we were stuck at both checkpoint for an hour. After clearing the Malaysia custom, it's a breeze all the way. We stopped at Pagoh R&R for breakfast. To my surprise, there is massage chair at the rest stop and we tried it out after breakfast. There are 3 options: RM1 for 5min, RM5 for 15min and RM10 for 30min.

I asked hubby to order prata for me. When I saw the prata appearance, I knew it ain't tasty which turns out to be true.

We reached the resort after 2hr from Pagoh. We parked the car inside the resort for RM20 ~ S$8 as it's much safer although there is free parking outside the resort's security gantry.

Check in was a breeze as there ain't many guests checking in. We have to pay a deposit of RM1,000 first and the balance will be refunded upon checking out.

We waited for a buggy to send us to our villa as we are not sure where our villa is located.

I have booked a Canary Palm Villa which has a living room, a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and two toilets. The double bedroom toilet comes with a bathtub too.

We rested in the villa and I fall asleep. By the time I waked up, it's almost 4pm and Samuel has return back to the villa after exploring the resort. He told us that all the restaurants were closed for renovation except Sepoi Sepoi Cafe.

We walked from the villa to Sepoi Sepoi cafe as we don't want to wait for buggy ride. We passed by a Premier Traveler Palm Villa and went in to take a look since it's not locked.

I ordered Lasagne which taste ok but the green curry which hubby ordered is not nice at all. We also a barrel of Heineken beer. We just sit there and relax till late evening.

The dinner is buffet which is quite expensive, around RM80. We just continue to drink our beer and order fries for munching. There is a live band but we find that the singers are not up to standard.

We decided to check out the food stalls located along the road side. There are few stalls selling satay, steam corn, seafood, ramly burger etc.

We ordered satay and it's delicious! The guys couldn't have enough and they ordered another plate of satay.
