Blogger event @Grand Dorsett Hotel

Finally,I have free time to blog about the Blogger event in Grand Dorsett Hotel! I was kinda busy with my 'flamingo' project and I am glad that it is finally done. Will post about that project very soon,stay tuned ;) Alright,let's get back to the topic. I knew about this from Nana eddy in Facebook,a blogger friend of mine. FYI,Grand Dorsett Hotel is a 5 star hotel located in Subang nearby Sunway Pyramid. On that day,the Xue sisters -- Xueren and Xuewern came to my house at 2pm before the event starts. Well,Mr.Jayren Hann Yaw Kwan were suppose to fetch but he overslept... Lol,it's okay! Luckily nothing happened to him,we were so worried if anything had happened to him! Phew! :D Anyway,thanks to my mummy who fetched us after that! Big hugs to you mummy!

The timing was just right when we reached the hotel. we were lead to a small cafe to have some hi-tea food right after that. Pictures shall do the talk.


Cafe Aroma
RM25 per person.
The cafe sells cakes and desserts.



I love the tray 
It was filled with sandwiches,scones,cakes,tarts,tuna roll and puff.



You can toast the bread if you want to.



Typical Malaysian food -- banana,yam,keropok leko and sweet potato.



The kakak was toasting some bread for us.



I know what you are thinking of...The tarts look tempting! XD



Introducing the chef.



Group pics!
Meet the only guy Jayren :P
You can see Yeeing,Carmen,Jiayeen,me and the Xue sisters in these photos too! ;)



Eggie Jia Yeen and I.
I like the way she named her surname 'eggie',hahaha! XD



I told ya I love the tray ^^



After some briefings about the details of the hotel by the marketing communication manager Mr.Anthony Edwin,we were lead to 'Tanjung Wellness Spa' to take a look at the settings and circumstance there.
Picture above is the beautiful staircase in the lobby,it is shoo grand and beautiful :D



Pics taken in the spa house. 
Spot the big Xue Ren XD



Heart shape jacuzzi or just simply jacuzzi? 
No difference,lol.



Next,the Premier Lounge.
You are able to see external views in the lounge,it is quite spacious and comfy inside.
They serve some mini delights and drinks as well.



Before we take a rest in the Premier Lounge,we were lead to see the room with a transparent bathroom..
See,it is a see-through glass between the room and the bathroom!
Interesting + 'dangerous'! :D



Me playing with the shower,water was dripping from the shower at that time,lol! 



The big bed.
Feels like sleeping on it.



Xue Wern aka Orange was playing with the shower. 
Spot someone behind? It's Edwin! XD



Back to the lounge. Had some snacks plus alcohol there. Xue Ren and I are still considered as 'underage girls' actually,but we still drank the white wine. Shhhh,don't tell anybody :P



Yeeing and I. 
It has been quite some time we hadn't meet up with each other after the lousang dinner on January,it is so nice to meet you again pretty sista! XD



Later on,we were lead to see the restaurants in the hotel. At the very beginning of the event,every blogger were asked to choose which restaurant you want to have dinner in. We got to choose between buffet,Chinese style and Japanese style dinner. Quite many of us chose to have dinner here.
The picture above shows the internal look of 'The Emperor'.
