Pregnancy #47 - Movenpick Hotel Room

Movenpick Hotel Room
Basically, we are quite satisfied with the room facilities, although if it came with complimentary free Wi-Fi would be even better but no, internet access is chargeable...sadness.

The room was relatively new...why i say this was because the interior and bathroom looks pretty new, however there was tear on our bedsheets and the desk chair was stained. For the bathroom area, the vanity countertop also had stains on it, the free standing bath-tub had water leaking out when we filled it with water. So it's not completely perfect.

The plus items were the bathroom was fitted with a LED extendable mirror for ladies which was very useful when putting on our make-up, the drawer had a hair blower, the dim sum stack has loads of toiletries...however i don't understand why they only provide 1 number of shower gel, shampoo and moisturiser! It's not enough for two especially the bottle is so small!!!
King size bed with plush pillows!
Yes! we are happy with the complimentary Nespresso and TWG

Pregnancy #49 - Resorts World Malaysian Hawker

Malaysian Hawker Fare 
There is a quite a wide variety of Malaysian food here and at affordable prices too! One would think that it's situated just beside Universal Studio theme park, the food prices here must be exorbitant but hey no! Wanton mee here is only $4.50!

I'm not sure how authentic the food flavour here but it was pretty crowded at 3pm and the food that we bought tasted somewhat right.

Lor Bak which we called Ngor Hiang in SG
We tried the Penang Ah Long Lor Bak which was fried until hot and cripsy, it was meat was tender and marinated with five spice powder and rolled in soya bean sheets. Hubs bought the cripsy prawn crackers which were so different from the SG version and sorry to say, we prefer the SG version!!!
They have a set which goes for $8++  or you can go ala carte too which we did here.
Hokkien Mee in dark sweet sauce
Next on our food list is KL Jalan Alor Hokkien Mee claimed to have their recipe perfected over 30 years!!!! Their noodles is reknowned for its dark sauce that infuses the noodles with a fragrant aroma and paired with cabbage and pork or was it chicken??? it was so dark that i couldnt really figure it out! Nevertheless, it still commands a queue here and the waiting time was 30mins!

Dessert time!
Pulut Hitam

After 2 main dishes, we end our meals with a try at the dessert stall! Sweet and happiness!!! The famous Penang Chendol conjured up with fresh green chendol jelly, sweetened red beans (really huge) on shaved ice and drizzled with gula melaka...not bad! But I'm sure there are equally good chendols out there at our SG hawker stalls too!!!

If you thought the Chendol was good, wait till you try the black glutinous rice! It's really thick and full of flavour!!! I likey this one alot!!!

Crab Feast at Melllben

Heard quite a bit about this little seafood restaurant in Ang Mo Kio so I decided to check it out! Online, they are well known for their butter crabs and crab beehoon and many have to Q at least 2 hours during peak hours.

we ordered 2 crabs done in butter and claypot beehoon soup style. Each crab was $50. Prices quite steep considering that my crab at Jumbo or Long Beach Seafood usually cost $50 too! And this place is under a HDB.

The waiting time was quite long considering that we arrived very early and it wasn't full house yet. But nevertheless when it came, WAH! The claypot crab beehoon soup was really good! The soup was very wholesome, the crab was fresh, did not stick to the shell and came off very easy.

The butter crab was equally good too, although i thought it was a dry dish but it came wet with buttery sauce!

All-in-all, I think if I'm ever craving for claypot beehoon crabs, this is the place to go for sure!!
