Inspector's Birthday Weekend

Had an absolutely lovely weekend at PD for Inspector's birthday celebration. We rented a 4-room penthouse at Regency Tanjung Tuan Beach Resort for RM 650 for a night. It was a luxurious penthouse, rooms were spacious, fully carpeted (except for the bathrooms), lovely sea view and all. The only slack thing was that the supposedly kitchen had been converted to a double bed room. But then again, it was good enough to fit all nine of us. Which meant that we got an extra bedroom for the price of a 4-bedroom penthouse. Woo hoo!


The penthouse



The master bedroom with the attached bathroom

The haze was reallllly terrible though. The burning smell was sooooo strong that I just felt like I was standing exactly beside a barbeque pit!! *Pfft*


The usual view of the neighbouring Corus Paradise


The view during the haze

We checked in at about 2pm, and loaded up all our food stuffs onto the dining table and the fridge. We rested, played some music on the Mp3 player, the guys played PS2, the girls chatted with each other. By 5.30pm, all of us went down to the beach for a couple of rounds of volleyball. The ball that Freckles bought was a bit too hard for volleyball, most of us had slight bruises around our wrists after that, so we ended up playing football, 5 girls against 4 guys. No rules, no fouls, but the goalpost for the guys was much, much, much smaller than the girls' goalpost. Muahahhahaa.. We had a lot of fun during the game, couldn't remember which team won but I remembered scratching Inspector's arm with my long fingernails.. I felt soooo guilty after that, that I peeled my fingernails, they're now really short and harmless.. Hehe.. We went to shoot some baskets as well until we were dead tired.

The other 4 bedrooms

Went back to the penthouse by 7.30pm, took our showers, and we prepared for the barbeque by the balcony. Since we were kitchen-less, we turned the general bathroom into a washing area - To wash the utensils, pots, pans, prawns, sausages, crabsticks, squids, chicken wings, beef slices, etc. The bathroom really smelled like a dumpster laaaa... *lol* Chef as usual, did all the cooking while the rest of us helped him out. We ate, we drank, we laughed, we watched Air Force One on Star World, we took photos, and we ate, and we drank, and we laughed, and we took photos. *grin*


The balcony where we had our barbeque

We celebrated Inspector's birthday with a yummy blackforest cake (specifically bought that flavor coz it's his favourite) before midnight. We sang Happy Birthday to our heart's content, and then we gave a toast to our friendship. And then we ate, and we drank, and we laughed. Some of us played mahjong on the dining table, while the rest of us watched "Rush Hour 2" on DVD. Then we continued watching a horror movie on TV entitled "Long Time Dead". It was so horrific that the storyline reminded me of "Final Destination" where everyone dies. Just couldn't 'tahan' horror movies, so we all knocked off by 3 plus. Hate horror movies.. Hate horror movies..


The living + dining area



Woke up around 9 plus in the morning, and Chef made us breakfast - chicken wings, buns with melted butter, and fried eggs. Simply delicious! We played a couple rounds of mahjong before we packed up and checked out by 12pm. We stopped by at the Seremban resthouse for a drink before we parted our own ways.

Overall, we had a superb time there. Regency Tanjung Tuan may have existed for more than 10 years now (I remembered going there as a kid), but it's being maintained very well. I was there for my company's annual trip last year but the penthouse we stayed in back then wasn't as nice nor luxurious as this one. Inspector had a jolly good time, he admitted it was one of the best birthdays he has ever had. I had a great time too, and I'm pretty sure everyone else enjoyed themselves as well. We're all gonna meet up this weekend to sort out the cost for the food and accomodation, and look at pictures.

I wouldn't mind going back there again some time soon!! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, MY DEAR INSPECTOR!!!! *Muakz*
