DoubleTree by Hilton JB – Executive Suite

Spending quality weekends turn out to be pretty important to me. It got upgraded to a priority since I started working and I realised that I’ve been slaving too hard. Sometimes, I need to ask myself why am I doing this to myself?! To kick off the brand new year, I’ve officiated it with a weekend staycation at DoubleTree by Hilton at Johor Bahru, usually known as DoubleTree by Hilton JB.

 photo DSC_0153_zps9wdqvdmb.jpg

Here is how its like after braving and surviving the crowd to cross the causeway from Singapore. It can be real mad but hey, let’s just look on the bright side. The idea of checking-in into an executive suite with the girlfriends ease all the sorrows. *nods head* Yes to weekends like this!

the.twenty.cavan.

Spending some cozy time over dinner on a Thursday night and this is how its like at the.twenty.cavan.

Having the.twenty.cavan. as one of the merchants on both the Entertainer Singapore and the Cheers Singapore 2017 apps helps to save a hole your pocket. No, not because the items on the the.twenty.cavan.’s menu is pricey, perhaps, having the Entertainer Singapore and the Cheers Singapore 2017 apps in your phone helps you to save quite a bit.

the.twenty.cavan is a modern cuisine restaurant with strong Chinese influences. Its rustic dining area may be mistaken for a lightbulb showcase because the owners wanted to decorate it in such a way as to acknowledge Jalan Besar’s association with lighting shops.

 photo DSC_0005_zps6g7nzwye.jpg

The night started off wit Garden Green Salad with pan-fried prawns, cashew nuts, fresh berries and green chili dressing ($12), Mushroom Skewers which comprises peppercorn-flavoured Portobello and Shiitake mushrooms ($8), Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with curry chicken floss ($9) and Quad Seafood ($12) which comprises top shell, scallop, prawn, baby octopus tossed with mint hot bean sauce served with jellyfish. A choice of three starters costs $21 and four starters cost $26.
