When the queen was here during her holiday, we decided to drive to 'The Pearl of the Orient'. This time round, we wanted to spend one night in Penang's most happening social area, Gurney Drive. However, we didn't book any hotel earlier, so we just walked-in to The Gurney Resort Hotel & Residences which is located along the renowned tourist belt of Gurney Drive.

#4 We had a 2 Bedroom Suite not knowing what to expect.

#9 The bathroom comes with a Jacuzzi bathtub and separate shower stall.

Within several minutes' drive from the hotel, there are dozens of hawker stalls offering all types of cuisine that line the inner side of the esplanade.

We had Char Kway Teow, Asam Laksa,


#15 Hokkien Prawn Mee,


#16 Oyster omelette,


#17 Ais kacang (ABC).


The next day, I wanted to go for an early morning jog take a stroll along the coast and enjoy the sea breeze. But, that night I slept very well. In fact, too well and I woke up at one-hour-before-check-out-time!!!



#18 So I got into the Jacuzzi again. While I was enjoying water massage, I opened the curtain and looked out of the window.... gosh! It has a breathtaking view of the sea and sky!

The views from every corner of the suite are fantastic!

#21 A picturesque view of the ocean.


#22 Upmarket residential zone.


#23 A new modern luxury condominium situated next to The Gurney Resort.

The suite certainly lived up to our expectations; well prepared, extremely well equipped and comfortable.

#25 Swimming pool.


#26 It has 259 Suite Rooms in the 36-storey high building.

#28


#29 Children wave pool, water slides, lazy river ride and lots of waterfalls.


Well, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel very much and the queen said she'll definitely come back!


#30 Oh well... I wish I had more time and money to spend like this dude.

I've had a busy weekend, but a great one! We went shopping for Christmas, took a river cruise along Malacca River...after all, it was our 3rd dating anniversary!


Two weekends ago, Andrei & Katya invited us for a meal at their home. They had their first child here, in Malaysia and we couldn't wait to see baby Polina!


Polina is such a gorgeous baby!


She is trying really hard to crawl!


They prepared some delicious dishes cooked in an authentic style of Russian cuisine which Ralph and I were truly enjoyed!

There were also different types of beverages (red wine, white wine, juice, soft drinks and certainly including Russian Vodka) for us to drink and pronounce our toasts!


Soup is served as the first course.

Undoubtedly the most recognizable is Borsch, beetroot soup served with sour cream.


My glass of red wine, ONLY for toasting.


Main course - Russian cutlet (Russian style meatball) and mashed potatoes.





An after-dinner drink to round off the meal.


Assorted chocolate candies.


Oh I guess she likes the teddy bear that we bought for her, huh? I know, the teddy bear is too BIG and too heavy for her. LOL! You see, it is so fun to shop for babies. But, we're stumped and the real challenge for us is what to get for a newborn baby!!!

I am going for a candlelight dinner by poolside at the E&O to celebrate his 101 posting. To express his gratitude and appreciation, he would like to thank each and every one of his readers who have so kindly and graciously graced his blog (A Moonlight Rendezvous) in the only way he knows how. So before my date, U.Lee shows up with his Jaguar E-Type, I give myself plenty of time to get ready as I do not want to start things off on the wrong foot.

I take a nice, long shower and spice up my shower with some music. Oh, there is nothing more pleasing than that. After shower, I style my hair and put on my make-up with steer clear of bright colored lipstick. I paint my nails red. And also, my toenails! As usual, I apply L'air du Temps by Nina Ricci to my body's pulse points and my freshly washed hair as a final touch.

Well, I don't have to shop for a dress because he had prepared for me an outfit in advance!

Monica, Somehow when I spotted this dress I thought of you. Thank you for being my friend, and your always warm thoughts. Hope I can concentrate on my driving around the Island. You'll be a knockout wearing this. Hope I don't get ko'ed!

"LOL! Thank you so much U.Lee!"




I put on my glasses with stylish Holiday frames from Zenni Optical that matches my outfit.



A great pair of heels can transform any outfit into a look that is so fabulous, so therefore, I can't resist the sky-high Jimmy Choo heels.

Voila, I am ready to go!
