Two weeks ago, i made a plan to go to miri with my cousin DN, unfortunately she cancelled on me at the very last minute. Thanks to Wani & Qistina who agreed to go on this trip because i really need a holiday in the sun. We were also joined by Wani's little brothers and their friends. 7s a crowd, they say.
We decided to stay at Marriott hotel, a hotel filled with happy childhood memories, mainly due to its gorgeous and huge swimming pool. Our room was just 10 feet away from the pool. As soon as we checked in, i reached out for the bed, while others unpacked their stuff and preparing their outfit for sungkai later that evening. The sungkai I had was perfect; great ambience, delicious food and ahmazing coffee. The hotel provided a top-notch coffee maker that makes macchiato. The only thing i dont like about the food there was the rice as it has a different texture than what we have here in Brunei. After sungkai, we went to Megamall for a short shopping but didnt managed to get things as we arrived there at 9pm. We ended the night with a smoke at the balcony and changing funny stories amongst ourselves.
I woke up the next day with a smile on my face. The sun was shining and the pool was not far from our room. I decided to jump in while others were still sleeping. Wani and Qis took pictures for memories. It was a nice sunny day with view of caucasian men, sunbathing. Haha. Upon checking out, we took some more pictures ( you can see it below) and headed on to the new Imperial mall. A holiday is not a holiday if shopping is not included. Am i right? At 6pm, we went for a sungkai at Grand Palace hotel, one of my family ritual hotel for food. They specialized in Shark fin soup but unfortunately, it wasnt in the menu anymore. Bummer. We ordered ourselves some great food; from asian to western cuisine.
I reached home at exactly midnight and fell miserably tired. Nonetheless, it was a nice mellow trip.
Below are some of the pictures from the trip.
