Long Evening at my Hotel

It’s 2am, and I am just preparing for bed; usually I will be sleeping at 11pm in India whereas in Malaysia I will be sleeping at 3-4am. It is India’s independent day today, and I have quite a long evening. I went to my hotel straight after work, because I planned to remotely do my Penang task. So, for the very first time I ordered Room Service. I placed order for Chinese fried rice, a hot and sour soup and a glass of coconut water.

The food arrived 20 minutes and it cost around 1000 rupee (almost RM90), so this means that I need to tip the service boy 100 rupee (Sigh). For once, I was really hungry because I have not tasted any Chinese food or seen this much of rice in 5 days!


So, I enjoyed my food although the fried rice tasted plain (Maybe because of too much Indian food) and the coconut water tasted salty (So, take note India Coconut might taste salty).

Just when I finished my food, I saw a note slipped under the door.


Hmm… The duty manager would like to see me. Is it free gift? Free food? Free one night stay? So I called him, and he explained that my bill has reached the hotel limit and would like me to settle it. *disappointed*

So, I went down to settle my bill. Wait waiting for the computer to generate them, the duty manager introduced me to the Hotel Chinese Restaurant Master Chef, Happy Wong! He is a Malaysian. So, in my life, for the first time I was having tea with a Master Chef.



(Below: Happy Wong would no longer be happy if he know that I blured his photo. Shhhhh!)


So, guess how much is my hotel bill? 83675.64 rupee! My 2 months salary!

Go and maximize your credit card usage in this trip.
You will get something nice in the end..
LOL.. You will touch your credit card limit so easily every time you pay your hotel fees. :P

The only nice thing i could imagine is a bill as large as a new Proton Saga.

Anyway, my current credit card limit only could allow me to stay for 5 nights! Sigh...

Yup, it was fried rice alright, but the rice is indian rice, it looks really small.

But i still prefer cheese nan or butter chicken. Wanna trade with my fried rice it worth RM30+ you know? :p
