Rest, Relax Then Suffer

So yeah, both Zaini and I went to run  a half-marathon at Putrajaya Night Marathon last Saturday. The race venue was actually quite near to our home but I figured, what the heck... might as well make a weekend retreat that weekend. Eat, rest, run, chill. ^^ Not to mention, burn some $$$. hehehe

After lunching on some salmon teppanyaki (for me. Zaini had seafood teppanyaki and Raimie had a nice sushi/udon set lunch) at Miyagi Restaurant in Bangi, we went to Pullman Putrajaya where we will be spending the night that Saturday.

Check-in was a breeze. Staff there were super friendly. I'm always partial to friendly staff. ;)

The room itself was nice too. BIG!
 
We stayed at the Jasmine wing, which has Indian influence to its decoration. We had a room with a balcony but pity, the balcony overlook a boring road instead of the lake. Plus, there were no chairs at the balcony so we can't "lepak" there and enjoy the sights.
HUMONGOUS bathroom! It's bigger than my master bedroom ad second bedroom combined! Plus point of this room - there are two toilets. One in the bathroom (as can be seen here) and one outside. The bathroom was placed far inside the room and I tell you, any "weird" noise you might make inside the bathroom can't be heard by anyone who is sitting in front of the TV outside. I called my son a few times while I was inside this bathroom and he didn't hear a thing! Just saying...
We ordered room service for our early dinner. Just light dinner for Zaini & I as we didn't want to be bloated before our 21K run so we shared the sandwich. Raimie has a big burger all to himself. For such a small portion, these were quite expensive though.

The room we got came with free wi-fi access which of course were used to the max. :)
plus breakfast too. I LOVE my bread. Yummmzzzz.... Nothing to shout about the service there though. Especially not when I had to go find our set of cutleries myself and set the table. Food selection can be better but then again, if they have nice bread... I won't complain, much.

Anyway, it was nice to spend the night before pounding the tarmac and sleep on a nice, comfy bed; wake up and have a leisure breakfast too. Pity can't enjoy these sort of thing often. Not if I don't want to be broke paying for them!

    2. What did you do at the reception? Winked at the handsome counter staff?

    3. No lah... just chit-chat and make lame jokes with them.

      Too often, we Malaysians are very "sombong" when talking to service staff one.

      Instead of complaining and show nasty face, do the opposite. If it doesn't work, then only kaw-kaw complain.... to the GM. kekeke

  11. Although it burnt your pockets, I think it was worth it. You don't do that so often so why not pamper ourselves once in a while. It is a good treat and memorable vacation. No need to fly so faraway for holiday. I have the same thinking like you!

    1. yes it is true ..
      sometime it is good just to stay in a nice hotel and put the silent tag outside the room.. kakakaka

  12. I like the bathroom, so canggih and modern! I think the only time I was impressed with a hotel bathroom was my stay at the 5 star Patong Beach Resort in Phuket which is not better than your Pullman's bathroom. Really suitable for an Indian Maharajah Zaini and Maharani Lina Petai..... Kakakakakakaka

  15. Wowww u sure know how to splurge n getaway while running in style la Kak Lina, never been to the Pullman yet... For sure mahal but it was worth it, right? hehee...

    So classy 4 u guys to choose the Jasmine, ala2 Mumtaz Mahal n Shah Jehan gituh.. hahaa... Family bonding + spouse bonding + running = priceless... The breakfast looks scrumptious... Yumm!

    How come there`s no pic of salmon teppanyaki, seafood teppanyaki at Miyagi`s, kak lina? Too common eh? hehe... I`m soo into Japanese cuisine too... Drooling... hahaha

    1. We didn't choose the Jasmine wing. I just called, book a room at got this. hehehe

      The room rate - OK la. Mahal lagi Sunway Lagoon Hotel. ANd they are not as nice.

      Miyagi food photo? Ala... dah selalu pegi sana, malas dah nak ambik gambar. Anyways, if you love Japanese food - Miyagi Restaurant in Bangi is GREAT! Great value. Superb service. Ramai Nihojin keje kat situ come over for lunch. That should say something about the place. :)

  16. When we had our Ansara Jasin 30th Anniv Dinner kat PICC hari tu, I tido Pullman jugak (ala2 slumber party hahaa walaupun rumah dekat je). We go the Moroccan-themed rooms. Dari dulu I suka theme Morocco ni. I attempted to decorate my living & dining room like this, many2 years ago masa anak kecik2 lagi. Bila anak dah bertambah, I terpaksa tukar ke deco yg lebih 'tahan lasak' haha

    1. Nice theme kan? But I felt a few spots a bit neglected lah kat this hotel. Sebab too big kot.

      Ha'ah yelah kan... with kids, better to have less fussy decor and tahan lasak one too. ;)
