A Night in Burswood

Joe and I had a 2 days 1 night relaxation at Burswood on Wednesday.
We stayed in Intercontinental Hotel, Classic room.

The room was spacious, cozy, nice view, comfortable, big LCD TV, very nice bathroom and Oh-I-Love-the-Bed.

Somehow I really love the bathroom. I told joe that I want my bathroom to be like that in my future new house :)

After opening and checking on every drawer and cabinets (that was me. Joe was fascinated that I look like a Inspector, check and look for everything in the room like a kiasu) we decided to sit down, relax, and have a cup of tea before heading to the swimming pool & spa.

Look what I've found. A drawer full of mini bottle of alcohol~~~~ I wana get the Henessey one.. That is the only one that I don't have :P

While we were having a nice swim and spa, the room service man went into our hotel room and gave us a little surprise. A box of 2 lovely tiny chocolates~ The chocs taste so gooooood... yum...

After all that, it was already 530pm! We get changed and ready to go to have our lovely dinner at Sirocco.
We had quite a lot for our dinner. To be honest, I ATE TOO MUCH and I WAS MEANT TO GO ON MY FREAKING DIET! Pardon me. Although I ate a lot, but I was really satisfied with the meals and I know I will regret if I don't order it :P

Let me tell you what we had for our dinner.
For our entree, we had Turkish breads with 3 types of dips and Smoked salmon Caesar salad.

This is the best Caesar Salad I've ever eaten in my life. Sorry, I was too excited and my mouth act faster than my hand. Maybe you can try dining there, so you get to taste what I have tasted!

My main was Catch of the day. Pretty good... until I tasted Joe's Steak!

The steak is the best. I saw at least 2-3 tables ordered just the steak! I felt regret immediately that I've ordered the fish instead of the steak. It's the best steak. So juicy, So tender, Just nice and everything goes well together. I felt like tapao-ing back just in case I am hungry later. But of course.. I can't.

Then we had desserts.

Butter Bread pudding

White chocolate tart, Cassis sorbet, vanilla anglaise
I'm sorry but I have to say this is the BEST dessert EVER!!! Usually, dessert is all about Sweet, sweet and SWEET! But this my friend.. It's not only SWEET.. but a little SOUR to let my taste bud had an excellent kick!
Oh soooooo good.. I actually finished my dessert... I still can feel the texture of the pastry and the taste of the Cassis sorbet in my mind... ^_^

After the dinner, we head to the showroom to watch Stomp.

Stomp is not an ordinary play, musical, or opera. There is no speech, dialogue or plot.
It's funny, entertaining and amazing!
It's hard to explain. Just go to, buy the ticket and Watch it now! The show ends this Sunday 3rd May 2009!

Yeap. You saw it.. We went to Burswood Casino and won some monaaayyy.... >: )
Feels sooooo good winning it. Black Jack & Roulette. I love.

This is our Breakfast at Atrium.

Pretty good. Lots of choices. I didn't get to try everything. I wasn't hungry at all, probably because my stomach is still digesting the dinner. :P

It's time for us to check out from the hotel, we had to go back to our "nest"...
no more comfortable beds with thick quilts, no more nice clean big bathroom, no more nice view with a cup of tea.. bye bye Burswood. I will miss you..

I have to thank Tony, my manager and Quokka for giving me such a nice gift! It was awesome. I really enjoyed it.

It's good to have everything for free :)
Use to the max, eat to the max, and play to the max. BEST.

Wow, that's a great motivator! I just want to go to a hotel with a Steam Shower like this. I bet I'd work like 70 hrs a week if I got a week stay each quarter.
