Celebrating our Sweet 16th

16 years and counting!


Usually when do you celebrate your wedding anniversary?

Do you celebrate the date of the wedding registration or the date of the wedding dinner?

Hmm we can’t decide sometimes. We celebrate the days we got together but most importantly we celebrate each other. ♥

This year, hubby proposed that we should go away for a night, by ourselves. Without the kids. Without the dogs. He booked us into Hotel Stripes KL which was situated along Jalan Sultan Ismail near Sogo Shopping Mall and Quill City Mall though on the map, it says Chow Kit area. Hmm…..anyway, we checked into the hotel around 2pm… was very happy with the upgrade to an Executive Studio which has a deep and big bathtub. VA-VA-VOOM! Tubby…here I come!


Ahhh our bed was so comfy. I love this room. Very picturesque!



And I present you, my tub for the day!


Can’t shy away now, can I? Just had to have that selfie in the bathroom. CHECKED!


After touring our room which consists of opening cupboard and drawers, checking out nooks and corners, we headed out and took the free shuttle service to Bukit Bintang. We pretended to be tourists just for the day. Shhhh it was fun!. We caught a movie, did some window shopping and had dinner at Ben’s!

After dinner, we headed back to the hotel with Uber. We can’t call it a night until we have some Vitamin C – COFFEE!!! We decided we were too lazy to patronise The Row so we settled for Brasserie 25, at the lobby of the hotel. Hubby ordered French Coffee (Cointreau® orange liqueur, Kahlua® coffee liqueur, coffee, whipped cream, sugar and Cointreau® orange liqueur), while I had a cup of Cappuccino. That’s our very first French Coffee and we liked it. I call it coffee with a twist! Forgive me as I did not take any pictures of our caffeine fix but I did take a picture of our dessert. A very delicious one by the way.

Brasserie 25 serves French Cuisine and have been receiving rave reviews. We would like to go there for dinner someday, hopefully with our brood. It would be everyone’s first French Cuisine and we can’t wait to be WOWED.

So there you go. It’s been 16 years and we look forward to many more years to come. Nobody said it was easy and nobody said it was hard. Marriage is an adventure. Love is meant to be an adventure.
