The Westin KL Again!..

The Westin Executive Club at its view

We spent our Christmas Eve at The Westin KL again this year.  I did a review on the hotel here and here.  Gotta get this post out of the way before this year slips by in no time!  How time flies!  Today is already the last day of 2011!  Gosh!  I can't think of what I have accomplished in the whole year of 2011 now that it's almost gone!

Back to this post, this time we opted for an upgrade to the executive club room on the 33rd floor.  The room size was no different from the usual one.  Only that with the upgrade, we get to enjoy having complimentary breakfast and evening cocktail at their Executive Lounge located on the same floor where our room was.  On top of that, we get to help ourselves to non-alcholic drinks (juices & can drinks) throughout the day.    The spread of buffet breakfast was somewhat limited so hubby and I went down to The Living Room for breakfast the next morning.  They had this grilled BBQ steak counter last year, not this time though.  Nevertheless, we enjoyed the widespread of buffet breakfast thoroughly.  Burps!

The boy had awoken and was lying on the heavenly bed playing on his iPad when we came up from breakfast.  We then took him to The Westin Executive Club just across our room to have something light for breakfast before going down to the pool for a swim.  What I loved about the club was the staff there didn't bother to ask you for your room number, not at all, you can just grab something to eat, walk back to your room to relax and walk back in again to eat.  The boy made himself at home, had a few finger food, few sips of juice, played his games on the internet in the computer room, walked out, helped himself to more food and juice, declared he's full and dashed back into the computer room for more internet games.  No one bothers, so liberal..  Daddy had a cup of coffee while the boy was eating.  I had always been a small eater so I just roamed about the place snapping pictures.

Dinner @Room Eighteen, Fahrenheit 88
Food wise, nothing to shout about, I just wanna clear the vouchers purchased earlier. 

It was already 5.30pm by the the time we made it to the hotel lobby.  We fetched the boy from his Aikido class and braved through the jam around the golden triangle before we finally got there.  As the evening cocktail started at 5.30pm, we left our luggage in the room and walked across to the executive club.  For those who love alcohol, you can mix your own cocktail with gin, vodka, rum, whiskey, tequila and whatnots.  Hubby had a small glass of whiskey mixed with don't know what and his face turned all red!  Different types of snacks including sushis and cheese cakes were served.  I loved the cheese cakes to bits and had 3 pcs of it.  Yummy!

Looked familiar to me especially the sleigh which I had seen at Pavilion KL last year.

We were so bloated after the evening cocktail earlier at the hotel followed by dinner not long after.  We took our time strolling around the malls within the vicinity and took some pictures.

Didn't go for a ride on the mini merry-go-round.  My boy said he's too old for that. Hahaha..

Swimming in the pool the next morning before check-out.  Had a break in between to enjoy his lolly ice.

As the hotel extended our check-out time to 1pm, we rested in the room while the boy enjoyed soaking in the bath tub after the swim.  Checking out was a breeze as this could be done at the Executive Club as well.  The staff even offered to extend our access card so that we could come back to have another round of complimentary evening cocktail later on! How nice of him!  We didn't accept the offer though as both of us were not alcohol inclined. ;)

After checking out, we left our car at the hotel and walked across to The Pavilion KL.

Still full from our breakfast, we ordered something light from Food Republic, a plate of fried carrot cake, fried rice and fried oyster to share.  The place was super crowded, my boy had to resort to writing a note that read "Reserved for Leong ('s) family" which he folded to make a stand and placed it on the table.  LOL..  He was left alone at the table while daddy and mommy went hunting for food and drinks.  He later told me he was annoyed by the people who came non-stop asking for permission to take away our chairs. Hahaha...

This post will be my last for the year 2011.  I have so much to catch up on my blog and I still have loads of photos unsorted.  Never mind, there's always a next year to do that.  Hahaha..

By the way, where are you guys going for New Year countdown tonight?  Ours will most likely be on our bed.. snoring away.. Hahaha.. We are going up the hill tomorrow for a night's stay to mark the end of the school holidays.. School reopens next Wednesday and I am glad I can finally claim back my daily 6 hours' ME time! Yeah! *evil grins*

Before I end here, I would like to wish everyone who comes by my blog, "A Happy New Year 2012"! :)

Hi, we also did something similar to you, but checked into Doubletree on the 30th (for a few reasons we didn't want to be in KL downtown on NY day) and enjoyed their Executive Lounge too, but I was a little dissappointed at their selection, compared to Hyatt's. Anyway, I won't complain since these are little luxuries in life... hehe...

Your boy is very sporting and photogenic. Love his idea also on the table reservation! Smart!

Happy NY to you and family!

After so much of driving throughout the whole Peninsular Malaysia this holiday, I told hubby we shud just check in hotel for holiday in future. Kids love being in hotel, no matter where they are. And each time we go out, they will just ask, "when go back to hotel ah?"....
