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!
