WTS Travel Bus - Singapore to Kuala Lumpur (Booked at CatchThatBus)

ABBEY: It’s my first time going to Kuala Lumpur. Yey! My wife planned that our entry to the city is thru a bus. We purchased a couple of tickets online for 70SGD and our seats were reserved at WTS Travel busline. It will leave Jurong at 11:59PM on a Friday. 

We were at front of Big Box and hopped on the bus and few minutes only we were headed on our way. We really started travelling at 2AM after the immigration ceremonies (and it’s a weekend). We arrived at TBS Terminal Bersepadu Selatan 6:30AM Saturday. We have 2 stopovers but we preferred to sleep. 

The commute is ok and smooth, and cold :) The driver always ensure that we’re complete before going off.

WILL: I am keeping an eye on the schedule of busses from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur for months. Yes with “S”. We are waiting for Abbey’s leave to be approved, but when the office schedule was updated, the bus I want to ride on is fully booked. On that, we went on based on our denoted time of departure and landed to WTS Travel. 

This bus is just a “meh”. They only provide what is a necessary. A comfortable chair that you can recline and sleep to and an aircon. That’s it. No usb plug for you to charge, no tv, and meal to snack on. But our driver is exquisitely kind. 

Our driver goes extra mile, he waited for us in front of customs Malaysia Customs Gate and gather us around. He accompanied us to our bus parking lot. Unlike other passenger experiencing the agony of checking one by one the plate number of the busses parked. 

Thanks WTS for making our very first travel to KL by land comfortable.

Have a safe trip to all.

Element Kuala Lumpur - Luxury Studio & Suites

ABBEY: You’ll be able to enjoy perks and discounts if you’re a member of SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest). What do we got for our stay at Elements? First, a 500MYR room rate with king-sized bed with a view; complete with spa shower, wide screen tv, internet and includes breakfast. For another 60MYR, it was upgraded to a room with skyline view. 

Element Hotel knows how to pamper their guests. Upon filling up the reservation form, we specified if we can leave our bags early in the morning so our day-tour will be light. Then the day itself, we were able to check-in by 7AM. Wow, earliest check-in I had. 

The room is clean and the toiletries smell good. I was refreshed after my shower. After a long day, it was time to rest. The bed is very comfortable and the pillows and linens are soft. I dozed off in no time. 

The morning meal is great. Lots of choices; laksa, nasi lemak, sausages, grilled tomatoes, bacon, eggs, cold cuts, and fruits. 

They also have gym and swimming pool at 39th floor which we used before checking out. It was a wonderful experience. I would like to commend their staff for superb service.

WILL: Abbey, a proud member of SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest) took the opportunity to book on KL’s newly opened hotel, the Elements Kuala Lumpur by Westin. Being a member, you can get a slight difference at the price of a room BUT you will have for sure to get a special treatment.  

Element’s lobby is at the 40th floor and their rooms starts from 41st to 53rd floor. Our upgraded room is at 52nd. Abbey, upgraded the room and he is expecting that our bathroom may have a bathtub, but it didn’t. They provided a pleasant array of toiletries. The shampoo and body wash are fantastically fragrant. They supply lotion too!

It is facing the Petronas Twin Towers but another p building blocked one of those. Argh! The pillow and bed is so soft that it moulds and hugs our body to a good night sleep. Oh! They do not have bottled water on their fridge but they have a filtered tap water for you to enjoy their complimentary tea and coffee. Their tv is usb ready, you can charge your phones in there. 

Don’t forget to visit their gym or try their free yoga sessions. The indoor saline pool excites not only the adults because of the view of Petronas but also the kids too. 

Trace restaurant is open for a buffet breakfast and of course we indulge at Local food. I am so full, I forgot to take some granola treat and soya milk. Haha! 

Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay. Hey! One more thing. We push our luck if we can make an early check-in by 7am through SPG website and when we reached the Element Kuala Lumpur by 8am, our room is there waiting for us. Satisfied and happy couple here! 

Thanks Element Kuala Lumpur! Thanks to all smiling staff! We love you!

Sabio By The Sea at Quayside Isle (Sentosa Island)

ABBEY: After a heavy brunch at Miska, we went to Sabio by the Sea (still at Quayside Isle) for coffee and their famous dessert; Salty Butter Caramel Lava Cake.. 

I got a cappucino. The taste is not that strong but creamy. I enjoyed the dessert specially when the filling flowed down like lava after the cut. The caramel was not too sweet which is ok for me and it really went well with the ice cream.

All is offering Chocolate Lava so, this is a new thing to explore to. 

We partnered the Caramel Lava Cake with hot drinks. Tea for me, coffee for Abbey! Gosh! On instant, it was written in my fave list. Haha!
