Rest 'N' Relax @ Desaru Tunamaya Resort & Spa (3 days 2 nights)

This year for the year end school holiday, after much consideration and pretty last minute, we decided to go for a rest and relax trip at Desaru.
We got some credits in our Agoda account so after using up the credits, we pay about RM 100 per night for Desaru Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort (as the Lotus Desaru and Pulai Desire are both fully booked)
Packing is only done the night before the trip after we finalise and booked. 
The essentials for beach holiday ---  * Swimsuits * Sunblock  * Slippers * Toys for playing sand * Casual T-shirt and Shorts
We also brought along the kids scooter which they had fun playing :)
After lunch at Mount Austin, we drove to Desaru and reach about 2pm.
We have reached and greeted warmly by the staff. Check in was smooth and there is much less crowd here compared to Lotus Desaru.
We requested for high floor and got a room on the second floor (they only have maximum 3 floors and third floor are for premium room). We che…

Winter in MELBOURNE 2016- Day 11-FINAL DAY

Day 11 (FINAL DAY)
Time flies, today marks the last day of our 11 day 10 nights Melbourne Trip. 
When we woke up in the morning, the dryer spoil :( We are pretty panicked as we have washed one whole load of clothes and wanted to dry them before we do our final packing. We called the reception and after checking the dryer, they confirmed that it is spoilt. Housekeeping then helped us to dry our clothes using the hotel dryer and send us back the dry clothes in about 30 minutes. Kudos to the team!
We had a simple breakfast at hotel (juice, biscuit etc) to clear up the remaining food that we opened during the trip.
For brunch, we had to visit Manchester Press again. We missed the bagel, they are so amazing and coffee is great too!
It was a weekday morning so there is basically no queue so we got a seat once we reached at 10.30am :)
Manchester Press- Highly Recommended:
We ate until 11.15am and walk around the city again before heading back to the ho…

Winter in MELBOURNE 2016- Day 10

Day 10

It is almost towards the end of our holiday...Today is basically a free and easy day as we are all pretty exhausted from the travelling for the past week. There are still a few attractions that we could visit today (puffing billy, Werribee Zoo, Brighton bathing box, Heatherville Wildlife Park) but we just want to chill and have a slow day today, enjoying our last full day in Melbourne instead of rushing to tick off attractions off the list.
In the morning, we woke up at 9 plus, have a simple breakfast in the hotel, some yogurt,strawberries, biscuit, milk and orange juice...

After breakfast, we just laze around in the morning, watching TV and shower. We only got out of the hotel at 12.45pm, heading to The Hardware Societe for lunch. This cafe is also on the Must Go Melbourne Cafe list which we found online..
There was a long queue today, as we are out late and it is Sunday...We only manage to get a seat at 1.30pm.
After a long wait, we are finally seated..
