Celebrating my BIRTHDAY with ME
ello everybody!! I had the best birthday celebration with the hubs as he arranged a surprise staycation for me on my birthday! The moment I showed him the instagram feed of Lloyd’s Inn, he told me that he actually reserved the room like almost immediately — and that was 2 months before my birthday!In preparation for my birthday celebration, I fixed my bangs at Zinc Korean Hair Salon again and applied 2 days’ leave as instructed by the hubs as he claimed to have a series of surprises for me.
|MARBLE SLABS!! My current LOVE!|
The reception is a small area but it looked bright and airy with a huge bookcase to store magazines.
The friendly staff showed us around and finally into our Room 🙂
The hubs reserved the Standard Room because he is a very “standard” person *just kidding*
He didn’t know the difference between the rooms and hence reserved the most standard just to realise that we were missing a bath tub!! *LOL* But its OK, we still get to enjoy our rain shower 🙂
Oh yes, we were given our Breakfast Voucher to enjoy our complimentary breakfast @ Killiney Kopitiam the next morning.
After settling down for a while, we took a cab to Woodlands Checkpoint to have our lunch @ KFC.

I only had a packet of cheesy fries whereas the hubs had his fried chicken cravings satisfied. The Pepsi served was super fizzy and I would not recommend you guys to have such fizzy drinks. I though I was about to suffocate from carbon dioxide poisoning :X
|On the bus to Johor ~~|
|Had my passport stamped at the Customs 😀|
The most budget and enjoyable way to spend my birthday is to travel to Johor Bahru for a great massage and a feast! Oh yes, and if you have a car, you can even do your car polishing and buy your groceries there as well! Everything is so affordable there 🙂
I do not have the time and luxury to travel into Johor Bahru frequently and hence travelling there makes it a great birthday treat. I love massage anyways!
After shopping and massage, we had a great and healthy dinner @ Souper Tang in KSL Mall.

Super in love with their green beans that were stir-fried with Pu-er Tea Leaves *Nomz*
We cabbed back to Lloyd’s Inn that evening to find a lovely package on our bed.
|How sweet ~ They have a packet of cookies to welcome us back to our room!|
As we were all very tired, the best part is to drown ourselves under the rain shower!
I loved their toiletries as they have a very pleasant fragrance to it and the shampoo + conditioner left my hair smooth and silky.
|Skincare Routine ~ Packed Sulwhasoo’s samples so as to travel light|
|Midnight Snacks ~ the cookies from Lloyd’s Inn was FANTASTIC!|
|Hair Routine =.= (Yes, I simply pitu-ed my face for some drama)|
The Day After
We decided to have our complimentary breakfast @ Killiney‘s as the Western Breakfast option ain’t too appetising — I would prefer buffet style English Breakfast like the ATAS hotels if we are going Western lah.. But to my fussiness, I find that the toast served by Killiney ain’t as crispy and traditional as my fav Ya Kun’s. Even their milo was overly sweetened with condensed milk – the milo served at Lloyd’s Inn ‘s pantry tasted far better.

Check Out the Vlog!
Have been snapchatting as well.
After breakfast, we explored the place a little and took some OOTDs.
Lloyd’s Inn was hoting some bloggers / youtubers during that period for the Digital Fashion Week and they were flooding the pool area to film their exclusive interviews and hence we couldn’t really take many pretty photos that morning ~ bad timing 🙁
