Weekend getaway at Philea Resort, Ayer Keroh, Malacca

When it's near end of the year, the body turns into autopilot of laziness. Perhaps it's the rain, maybe it's the holiday season or the Christmas music lulling in the background. Who really knows? I was introduce to Philea by my bro Ms TEL. She was also dying for a weekend getaway to one of our favorite destination in Malaysia, Malacca. To a lot of people it may sound weird for it's so near to the city. But the love of good food and short drive to another town is too hard to resist.

The day started out with a late start coz we wanted a no rush break. Woke up when the body wants to, Ms TEL and Mr LSY came over to pick me and Mr Hubs up. Went for a dimsum lunch in ghetto Puchong. Placed our order and choice of Chinese Tea. One or two of the dimsum came with our tea and the order stopped. We were all hungry and was wondering WTH was going on. After signaling to the waiter and enquire about the slow dimsum delivery only then we were told that the kitchen is malfunction and smoky therefore the chef can't produce any morsels. WTH? If we did not took the initiative to ask, I think we had to wait til kingdom comes. We asked for the bill and paid it angrily and hungrily. If there was a pig walking the street at that very moment , I'm sure we will "telan" the damn thing without any hesitation.

Anyways, we then proceed to a nearby PappaRich for good ol' kopitiam food (no choice... i know you feel me, weekend is for eating tasty food only) and the food and drinks were served swiftly. Tummy filled and ready to hit the road! The time reads 3-4ish in the afternoon. Make a quick call to the resort to hold our rooms coz we're late for check in. Was told not to come early (eh?) coz the rooms are not ready. WTF? It's definitely not our day. Traffic was quite shite along the way coz a lot of people dunno how to drive.Sometimes I wonder how they pass and got their driving license.

We finally arrived at the resort around 5-ish. And proceed to check in, once again was told that the rooms are not ready! One of the check in staff said to wait for another 20 mins and another blurted out a 30 mins waiting time. We din give a shite as we are contented to be there. Had a lil chat (chicken backside..can't help it lor) with the friendly staff there and was told that there was a lot of late check outs from the previous nite (kiasu company trip staff, the company name starts with an H and has 5 letters and from Japan, quite popular on the road in Malaysia).

I realised that I'm writing too much unnecessary information here. Therefore, I shall proceed with the photos. Here you go folks, unveiling first time ever Philea Resort *drum roll please*

This Christmas tree is made out of recycled mineral water bottles. It's their eco-effort and guess the number of bottles correctly and stand a chance to win something. Forgot to read what the prizes were. But these days, all prizes are iPads.(trust me!)
