Birthday Staycation @ Studio M


392116_10150516109373665_706803664_10458894_834404772_n

Kept my actual birthDAY simple by spending most of the day with my IJ clique girlfriends. Booked a room at Studio M for a birthday staycation.

Initially, I was deciding hard on which hotel to choose. Decided not to splurge on the more expensive hotels like Marina Bay Sands, Capella and Movenpick. So I came to a final conclusion after being sold by the loft concept and bay window view that Studio M had. Plus, the entire decor of the room seemed very modern and best of all, cozy.

Checked in around 2pm, which is the norm

Was very excited to check out the room especially after seeing online pictures...

Upon Entering

I loved the loft and the room in general. Just that, I have to admit.. compared to the pictures I saw online, truth is that the room is really small. Well, having said that, I don't mind staying in the room alone. If only university hostels in Singapore were like that.. trust me, I would enrol in that Uni just for the room!

While waiting for Liyin to arrive, Reginia, Yiu Si & myself decided to recce the place instead of stoning in the room *the inner adventure creature in me unfolds*

After lunch, we went back for a well-deserved rest. Played tricks like Black Magic and it was uber fun tricking the others who didn't know anything about it. Got ready around early evening time and made my way to church!

Met the girls at Plaza Sing after my church service. Hui Xian came specially to pass me my present despite being sick *awww, so touched!*

381406_10150516120768665_706803664_10458967_793606375_n

Parents brought me the Hello Kitty cake I ordered. Headed back to the hotel, and the sweet little girls surprised me with a Pink Hello Kitty cake.

Yiu Si made me go down just to open the room door thro I was on the 2nd level of the room camwhoring!

385820_10150516130873665_706803664_10459023_1659224646_n

Quite obviously... it was a surprise, but I played along. K, I think I'm quite smart this year! (; Anyways, its the thought that counts, right!

379023_10150517094063665_706803664_10461770_1464953980_n
As much as I didn't bear to do so (especially the cute Hello Kitty head cake) but cakes are meant to be eaten. So I just had to!

392172_10150517093213665_706803664_10461763_48990628_n

Although it didn't turn out the way I requested it to be (layer by layer), I'm glad it's still very pretty & colourful!


Finally, it's presents time!

Loved how we spent the night together - Camwhored with all my birthday cakes, walked down Clarke Quay super not dressed up, supper at 12am, and back to the room to camwhore more.

I didn't really like it as the broth is too thick. However, the fish was fresh and it's topped with flavourful pesto!

The next morning, we woke up early for breakfast buffet. Something which I ALWAYS look forward to at hotels whether it's a staycation or on holidays.

Here at Studio M, the buffet breakfast spread isn't exceptionally awesome, more of acceptable...

Check out time was around 12pm so I made good use of my stay at Studio M and went to enjoy the pool ALONE (haha!) while the girls spent their time either sleeping or watching the television.
