Birthday Eve & Actual Day

I claim myself as a person who doesn't know or hardly know how to express my thoughts. I am bad in communication with people who are close to me like my family, boyf and friends. I hardly express how lucky I am to have them in my life but it doesn't mean that I am not thankful at all. 

Every birthday makes me realise how lucky and blessed I am. People around me are like a present to me, they are just awesome! Everyone is treating me like the only princess in their hearts, giving me all they can ever offer. I feel blessed, truly blessed. 

Birthday Eve
I had never expected my friends would be showing up and giving me a birthday surprise. Not going to list down each of them because YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!! :) Thank you for the surprises and presents, thanks for making me cry at Sushi King. :P I'm too lucky to have them in my Bachelor's Degree life! They made my degree life full of colours and thanks for allowing me to join the gang! Love you guys to the bits! Mwahs~

Birthday Actual Day
Nothing much special on my birthday as final examinations were getting nearer and I didn't have much time to spare to celebrate my birthday. Lol... 
Had my Human Resource Management presentation on that day and it was fine. Bumped into one of my lecturers at college and surprisingly he knew it was my birthday and he wished me Happy Birthday. HAHHAHA
After the presentation, me, the independent girl *ME* went to Queensbay Mall ALONE to redeem my free birthday juice from Boost! :) 

Had a simple birthday dinner at Starview Restaurant with my family and had my favourite ice-cream at my favourite place.

Got the chance to blow 3 cakes this year which means I have 9 wishes in total. :P
I wished for the same thing on the 9 wishes! Wishes come true please! 

Birthday Presents

Presents from Best Boyf.
*except one of the lipstick is from Shadow Lee the BFF*

Words can't describe how surprise I was when I received this present!
感谢感动的话,在那天收到这礼物时就已经跟你讲了。Thank you once again my BFF!

 One of the most special presents I have ever received - Body checkup.
My eldest sis sponsored me to do a body checkup. During the blood test, the practitioner injected 3 times on my arms only she could get my blood. She said my blood vessels are too tiny and it's very difficult to locate them.  The result also shows that I have too little muscle in my body and I was told to do more exercises in order to build up muscles! 

Till then, ciao.

ZEST Bar Cafe, GLOW Hotel Penang

Filled my tummy with good food at ZEST Bar Cafe @ Glow Hotel Penang right after finishing my hair spa at LAD Salon. Dexter even waited me finishing my hair spa at LAD Salon. So kind of him and I'm too lucky to have the chance to pamper my hair and tummy on the same day. :)

GLOW by Zinc was created for modern travellers who seek lodging solutions that provide a convenient and comfortable environment at a value price point. Originating in Bangkok, Thailand, the brand guarantees fair and surprise-free pricing. At every location, GLOW guests can make the most of their destination with ease while still focusing on their goals and objectives.

Five signature elements are standard at each GLOW by Zinc: comfortable bedding, a great shower and amenities, gym access, free WiFi in each guest room, and a self-serviced breakfast to go – all that is needed whether for business or leisure.

Live life in full colour. Just GLOW.

There are numerous of hotels in Penang island as this is a city with the combination of modern and heritage elements. However, there are only a few hotels serving Thai foods, especially authentic Thai food. The good news is, you don't have to worry anymore because I have found out that Glow Hotel Penang is serving authentic Thai food, and I was very honoured to be invited to try it out at the ZEST Bar Cafe.

I was going to talk about the environment of the ZEST Bar Cafe first but I can't because good food comes first! Yummmm~ :D

# Yam Moon Sen
 Glass noodle salad with prawns, ginger flower & lime leaf.
It tastes sour and spicy and it really stimulates my appetite. The prawns are juicy and fresh while the ginger flower and lime leaf enhance the taste. I like the taste of sour, this definitely my favourite. ;)

# Miang Kam
Betel leaves, coconut, dried shrimps, red onions, peanuts, ginger & chili.
 The prawns are fried to golden and crispy to bite. The Thai chili sauce is a perfect match to dip into!

# Kaeng Phet 
Spicy red curry & vegetables, choice of prawn and chicken
Although the menu states it as spicy red curry but it isn't really spicy, it is definitely suitable for people like me who can't handle the level of hot and spicy. :) The potato and chicken are well cooked to tender and the aromatic Thai rice matches with the curry perfectly! 

# Pad Thai
Wok fried thai noodles with prawns, beamsprout, bean curd & egg pattaya style
Big love of how the noodles with egg. The taste of the egg mixes together with the noodles when you put it into your mouth. Hmmp, is your saliva dropping already? :P

# Spaghetti Olio Aglio 
 Garlic, chili flakes and prawns
ZEST Bar Cafe does not only provide Thai foods, it is also providing western foods. 

Enough of the food, let's talk about the environment now. Big thumbs up for Glow Hotel Penang because EVERY SINGLE CORNER is the best background to take photos. I can say it out loud that Glow hotel is well designed!
There are total 3 sections of ZEST Bar Cafe, which are...

Location: First floor
It is available for meetings & private dinners and events.
ZEST Bar Cafe offers customers the unique opportunity to rent their entire First floor, which includes the restaurant (seats up to 100 pax), the pool bar, meeting/dining room and swimming pool! To be frank, the entire space can actually cater for up to 200 pax (standing) and 100 pax (seated). 
If you're thinking to hold a birthday party in style, product presentation or any other event, ZEST Bar Cafe definitely is your first choice. Where else can you rent a hotel meeting room including swimming pool and adjacent bar?
Not to mention, the private dining room is available for up to 20 pax and can also be used for small sized meetings or presentations for up to 40 pax theatre style.

Location: Ground Floor and First Floor | Open Daily: 07.00 am – 12.00 am
Looking for something enjoyable? Come and have refreshing drinks at the pool bar! 
It is relaxing and unwinding at the Pool Bar or Lobby Bar with favourite cocktails, frappes and ice blended drinks that keep you cool and fresh. To make it better, you can just top up with some of the snacks and enjoy the colourful environment with your friends! 

Location: First Floor | Open Daily: 07.00 A.M. – 7.00 P.M.
Feel young with the artsy & fun of ZEST Bar Cafe! 
The cafe is a contemporary café serving a selection of delectable Thai fusion dishes. People can find great food, starting in the morning with their complimentary GLOW breakfast buffet and lunch time a la carte favourites.

Among the 3 sections, I like the cafe the most! I like the wall full with artistry drawings and I actually took quite a lot of photos there but I only picked a few to upload here because I don't want to hurt your eyes. I was too vain. :P

You're totally wrong if you think only the ZEST Bar Cafe can let you to take photo! HAHAH...
Lobby can too!!!

Thank you Dexter for the invitation once again!
Looking forward to to trying out the new food and staying at Glow Hotel Penang! :D
