Aloft KL Sentral

Room size is 33m3/355 sqf feels much much more smaller than Alila at 38m3/409 sqf.

If we are to stay in this hotel next time, will opt for bigger room size

Their breakfast are quite good, los of variety and yummy(nasi lemak, hash brown, chesses, pain au chocolate etc). Only thing is no fresh fruit juice avail

Alila bangsar staycation, December 2023

Alila Bangsar hotel

Had a staycation in Alila Hotel with hub and baby in tow. The room is very spacious and the bed feels really bigger than the usual king bed. Room size according to their website is 409 square feet/38 square meters. Love our stay here, only cons i would say there is no shopping mall outside for strolls and it takes 3 lift ride to get from car to room. First one from car to ground floour, then ground floor to check in counter on 41st floor, then another lift to get to room on floor 35-40. But given all these cons, i will consider to stay again due to spacious and well design room, free snack on lobby of each room floor(murukku, kerepek, coffee).

Their pool open till quite late, not the usual 7pm, but very dark so a bit scary when I swam there at night.

Love their breakfast, the spread is quite limited, but the quality makes up for it. It is prepared by the restaurant: Botanica & co

Santorini Confinement Centre, Sri Petaling

Before given birth to baby mid this year, I have went to research few centres and below are notes and thoughts I have on them. Overall i chose Santorini because of location is nearby my house, and also price is not too expensive, my package is 14k. Only thing I would advice is to expect to pay extra (~RM180 per session) for lactation massage/service if you need one, cos they will refer you to Love Latch if you have lactation issue like engorgement, blocked duct etc.

santorini has good camera placement to view your baby, there is camera which face your baby bed, another which view the bathing area, and another which view the whole baby room where you can see your baby when the nurse feed them.

Garden Gem, Petaling Jaya

Room is the nicest among all the confinement centre I been, very spacious, full of natural light. One of my friend love it there, they have inhouse lactation specialist which can be a major plus

~15.5k and above

2 weeks once doctor visit

Need pay 30% deposit

Luna confinement, Central Residence, Sungei Besi highway 

I quite like Luna as well, the price is reasonable, can’t remember, I think around 13k as well, but 1 main draw back is there is no natural light in whole centre. The room has no window for sunlight!

Has 2 block

For main block: 12 baby 2nd floor, 10 baby 1st floor

1 nurse 3 baby(all the centre will say this ratio)

2nd block 2 floor (7 baby + 7 baby)

Has in house jaundice treatment, Rm120/hr

10am-7pm visiting hour

Provide 80 sanitary pad

Uses Huggies airsoft (Santorini also uses this)

3k deposit, 50% pct (rm300 admin)

Tues 2pm-6pm lactation specialist visit

Olive Dove, Bangsar South. I don’t like this centre, the person who showed me around really feels like sales person and not the motherly caring type 😀 the place feels huge and cold. I don’t feel this suitable for first time mum. However if you not first time mum, this can be a good choice as the room is like a hotel room which is quite big and with balcony! Just remember to ask for room facing morning sun otherwise it will very hot. I don’t like their baby room as it is not entirely viewable from outside. Santorin’s one is much better and fully viewable from camera and also when you walk by. This centre is cheapest among the few I mentioned here, I think got 11.5k when I asked

Huggies diaper

Doctor once a week(HKL)

Complimentary MAM bottle(Santorini also free 1 MAM bottle)

Deposit 3.5k (admin 300)

Below are the food I had in Santorini confinement centre in mid this year. Their food are mostly home cooked, don’t have bought pau, processed sausage etc. the most processed food I think are spaghetti sauce(cream/tomato) which I had few times for breakfast

Dessert in Santorini centre: the most look forward as their dessert are made in-house and very yummy

Above is pumpkin kuih I think, first meal I had when I check in, very yumm

Salak South breakfast/lunch food spots

1. Ho Liao noodle
salak-south-holiao

salak-south-ho-liao-noodle
Looks good but it is nothing special, it doesn’t really have the old-taste which I am looking for, not enough porkish aroma, the wantan is quite tasteless as well.
Post in Malay mail
salak-south-choy-kee-roasted-duck
2. Choy Kee roast duck which is also in Shoppee food. Shopee selling RM47 for half a duck, whereby here is RM39 per half duck. Their duck look freshly roasted when we reach around 10:30am on a Sunday

Salak-South-lai-lai-dessert-shop
3. Lai Lai dessert shop which sells dessert drink (bubur chacha, red bean soup etc), porridge, many type of fried dough etc

  • salak-south-lai-lai
    According to the owner, their fried stuff are fried in oil which is changed daily, so they charge slightly higher price. I don’t think the price is higher, it is RM1.70/RM1.80, outside is charging RM1.50 but oil is dirty blackish. You can really see their oil is clean and can see through to bottom of wok. Even the famous you-tuber recommended yau- char-kuay store in Sri petaling morning market who purportedly change oil daily is blackish in colour when I went recently. Really recommended you to go to Lai Lai to get fried stuff cooked in clean oil
    Below is we visited Lai Lai in July 2023. The oil is quite dirty, think they don’t change their oil daily now. The dessert however are nice: not too sweet, very big bowl, full of ingredients and quite cheap, don’t mind going back for their dessert soup.

4. Diagonally opposite is TC Taste Ori Pastry which sells usual baked pastries and frozen pau. We bought 6 frozen char siew pau (RM16.80) and 6 frozen red bean pau (RM 11.90), tasted so so only


 

Nasi Lemak Wanjo, Kampung Baru

Overall, find it expensive and not worth to go all the way there for this. Rice is very nice, rest of ingredient is just okay

Bergedil which has bits of minced meat is it cost RM3.70 per piece, so expensive and not even taste nice, prefer bergedil which has no meat in it.

My neighbourhood nasi lemak in Kuchai Lama, or in Sri petaling cheaper and better than this quite exorbitant priced NL.
