We chose Ibis Hong Kong Central & Sheung Wan for our 3 night stay in Hong Kong (May 2017) as it was quite central (as its name says!). We also went for Ibis as you generally know what to expect and they were one of the more affordable places to stay in Hong Kong.
Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has had a bad rep over the years. Ever since the sad tragedies that have occurred over the last few years. I’ve always been a loyal customer in using them for flights to and from Malaysia. One of our closest friends has also been quite a loyal customer. I’ve never had a reason to complain. Until now.
On Day 1 of our trip to Singapore we visited Gardens by the Bay. Our interest was piqued upon seeing them on David Attenborough’s programme Wild City.
Singapore is usually a quick stop over for tourists so they’ve made it really easy for tourists in terms of travel and communication! We were really glad to find (after some research) that they offer a sim card and travel card for tourists!
In the early part of May we flew to Malaysia once again. This time for my younger brother’s wedding! We’d booked 2 return Clubworld (Business) tickets through our Avios points last year in anticipation of being able to enjoy it for the first time together (I’d been in this class through a work trip previously). I didn’t review my first business class experience purely because I didn’t have much to say aside from I loved being able to sleep on the 13 hour flight and being taken care of quite well. However, our trip this time involved quite a bit of customer service so I thought I would review it.
In March we visited The Pudding Pantry for the 2nd time since it opened. Our first visit was back in 2014. I’d also visited on my own with people from work for a baby shower so it was my 3rd visit. The Pudding Pantry opened in Trinity Square in April 2014.
I’ve been looking forward to Kaspas opening in Nottingham for absolute months! We finally got to go in March after our visit to Red’s as the dessert options there weren’t the best. Its situated on Maid Marian Way and is quite easy to spot.
In early March we visited Red’s True Barbecue with a group of friends. For Keith and I it was our second time in quite a few years since it had opened. We went on a Saturday which as you can imagine required quite a long waiting time as its quite a popular and busy place but for some reason did not allow us to reserve a table. However luckily they have a system in place that allows customers to go away for a while and get a notification when their table is ready.
