TW’s first work trip to Manilla

His APEC card arrived just in time so he was pretty happy. The Grand Hyatt Manilla upgraded him to a suite as his globalist benefit.

+ Meat Smith Pulled pork

Meat Smith Telok Ayer

Pulled Pork burgers, corn bread, deep fried mac and cheese. What else could you ask for from a mothers day meal?

+ Grand Hyatt Jakarta Breakfast

Grand Hyatt Jakarta Club Lounge

We arrived at the hotel and were checked in before 10:30 which meant breakfast was still available in the Grand Hyatt Jakarta Club Lounge. On Saturday we had until 11am to catch breakfast. Breakfast includes an egg station and a soup, the soup option changed daily but always included noodles. Nom, nom. Best not forget the bacon, potato and sausages. Beef bacon not pork … Read More Grand Hyatt Jakarta Club Lounge

Pikachu – Standard Class Cinema XXI Plaza Indonesia

I wanted to compare gold class to velvet but we had a huge downpour and neither of us felt like going outside and crossing the street. Fortunately, the mall attached to the Grand Hyatt in Jakarta also has a cinema and it is screening Pikachu, whoop. Avengers really dominates the luxury experience. I didn’t want to see it again. It was long enough the … Read More Pikachu – Standard Class Cinema XXI Plaza Indonesia

Saveur (Purvis Street)

Last night we had French. I had tried to order it for delivery when we were both feeling crappy, worn out and tired on our 4 day working weekend. The delivery was cancelled but I still wanted it. Not enough that night to walk one street over and go get it but enough to hold a slight craving. Delivery would have saved a decent … Read More Saveur (Purvis Street)

SuperTree by Indochine

Last night we went to dinner at Gardens by the Bay to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. To make it special I had booked SuperTree by Indochine. The restaurant announced it was closing as Gardens by the Bay now has plans to turn the SuperTree into an observation deck. What I didn’t realise when I booked was just how much taller than everything else … Read More SuperTree by Indochine


Our posters made it here

Against everyone’s better judgment and advice, we packed our posters for the flight back to Singapore. An indirect flight just to increase the handling and risk of damage. The man in front of us in line when checking in scoffed and indicated we were foolish. I thought it was due to the amount of luggage we had. We both have status and we were … Read More Our posters made it here

The journey begins

Cat Sitters organised and have already visited Lola a few times. She likes them, so that is good. They love her, everyone loves her but they love her which is also good. The trip I wasn’t going to take is one I am now taking. Booking last minute and then changing my flights on the weekend to leave earlier than I intended. All done, … Read More The journey begins


Sir Whingealot gets an upgrade

TW is a globalist and he does now try to stay at Hyatt hotels wherever he can. He has a work trip to KL tonight and the hotel was basically sold out. The only thing showing online was a USD4,000+ per night suite. Through PrivĂ© I could get a standard suite for him at USD350 a night, or something around that. PrivĂ© gets him … Read More Sir Whingealot gets an upgrade

TW, Hyatt Gloablist and Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

Last time TW was at the Grand Hyatt in KL he wasn’t a super fan. On arrival, the reception staff member in the lobby told him to check in at the lounge. Took TW to the lift, walked him into the lift and left him to his own devices. TW didn’t know that they hadn’t bothered to press a button until he got the … Read More TW, Hyatt Gloablist and Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur
