Come to think of it, Sophie was also our good luck charm in winning an overnight stay in another property way back when she was still in my tummy. And now she did it again 6 years later! It's obvious she really loves hotels ☺
Since we hadn’t made any plans for my birthday, we decided to take advantage of one of the prizes so that we could spend the weekend lazing around and enjoying the hotel’s facilities. After speaking to Christine (their Sales Executive) who made all the arrangements, I received a confirmation for our stay, and fast forward to March, we arrived at the hotel on the 23rd.
While Hubby gave the car key to the valet, a bellboy immediately helped unload our things into a trolley. There were a few guests checking in and out at the Reception, but when it was my turn, everything was a breeze. The lady even greeted me when she noticed that it was my birthday.
The king bed was enough to fit the four of us very comfortably. That night, we conked out practically as soon as the lights were off and our tired bodies hit the soft pillows and duvet.
As you can probably tell, we didn't get to maximize our stay at the hotel and use most of its facilities as much as we wanted to. The reason was Caila had classes and lessons on Friday and Saturday so many times were spent shuffling her to and from those places. Oh well. At least the kids enjoyed the pool...and we all had a very relaxing sleep in the soft king-sized bed ☺
