Awesome Staycation at The Quincy Hotel, Part II

Continuing from the previous post, here are some pictures to share from my 'Quincy' experience. 

Tranquility amidst the rustle and bustle of the city centre. I like that there was a lot of green around the hotel. 



 Dinner!! :


Fruit salad and soup for starters. (That's a Gin Tonic for the boy from cocktail hour.) 

Steak for the mains. Yummy!

Here's me looking very happy with my food.

And despite already having so much at dinner, we were hungry at midnight and couldn't resist supper. Cup noodles and Lay's chips (not shown in pictures) from the minibar!

What's really fun for me during the stay (besides being able to pretty much eat yummy food non-stop all day) was the activities planned by the hotel for their guests. There was a morning yoga session at 8am and a cupcake baking session in the afternoon. 

The boy and I got up bright and early on the 2nd day, headed to the gym, and then trooped down for yoga. I guess we were feeling slightly guilty for having eaten so much the day before!

I've never done yoga in the open before. This was a really nice first time experience. We had wonderful weather.


That's me whom the teacher is helping. She was giving me a deeper stretch. It was a great way to start the day.

 And of course, we had to have a hearty breakfast after all that morning workout. 


Coffee/Tea corner (Notice that there are even takeaway cups provided!)

This is the face of a caffeine addict. 



I'm a huge fan of hotel's buffet breakfasts. 

The boy and I actually zipped off to the Toy and Comic Convention that was being held over that weekend and then zipped back after for lunch before the cupcake baking class.

Seafood horfun for lunch.


The boy's nasi goreng da' bomb!! It was super delicious!

And it's time for baking class!! I was really excited to learn how to bake cupcakes. I like watching 'DC Cupcakes' on TV and couldn't wait to try baking the colourful yummy little things.

 Ingredients for the bake.

The boy took the job of decorating the cupcakes really seriously and cut stencils for it. It had to be skulls, no less.

Looking good!

Freshly baked cupcakes!!

But alas, there weren't any sprinkle powder or decorating ingredients fine enough for the stencils. :(


I tried my best. Can you tell that it's a skull?

And that pretty much sums up my lovely staycation at The Quincy. I had a truly wonderful experience and would recommend it to anyone who needs a short break!
