Going on a weekend getaway

We’re all packed up for our weekend getaway. It doesn’t take a genius to tell that we’ll be going to the beach, right?


Here’s the place we are heading to, wanna hazard a guess?



Photos from here.


We’re going to Pangkor Laut Resort, yippee!!!

I’ve heard so much about this place and had always wanted to go there but with that kind of price, we might as well travel overseas. I had also hoped that my company would organize some meetings there but no such luck as it’s considered too luxurious. The golden opportunity came when a colleague, Audrey, mentioned that she’s going, and looking for extra company. Audrey’s friend works in YTL and she can book up to four rooms at one go, and since they are only taking two rooms and have two extra rooms to spare, I quickly grabbed them. It’s a fantastic deal, at RM115 per room per night for the garden villas, whereas the rack rate is USD350++. Mum, younger sister and her children (Yihao and Xiaoyu) will be coming along. It’s going to be a blast for the kids, with the beach and the pool at their disposal.

Wow, what a bargain!!! Hubby and I went to Pangkor ages ago during an online promotion and truly enjoyed it.

Does your YTL friend have discounts for Penang hotels too? Looking for a cheap beach hotel for Christmas LOL

Wanna give Lucas max time on the beach before we go back to winter again in Feb :P

Mybabybay, Mummy Moon, Mimi, Jesslyn - it was a good getaway, thanks.

Jazz, Hijackqueen - it was a good deal, that's why I jumped at the opportunity. Unfortunately my collegue's friend cannot just book the room. She has to travel together.

Little Lamb - sometimes they have an all inclusive 3D2N promotion which is quite worth it. Check them out.

Kittycat - no, she only gets discounts on YTL hotels. But I've got corporate rate on some hotels in Ferringhi. Let me know which one you have in mind and I can check them out for you.
