Traders Hotel KL 2011

We got the chance to go to KL again in mid March tagging along PiggyBeng’s business trip on the day he returned from Melbourne. It was a long day for him as he touched down around 9.30am and we drove to KL around 1pm arriving Traders Hotel next to KLCC just before the after office traffic build up. We had the opportunity to stay for 2 nights this round. Darrius has to miss school on Friday but was lucky it was school holiday the following week. This is our second time at Traders.

.

This time, we got lucky as we got upgraded to the Traders Club City View room which was on the 27th floor. The furnishing is more or less the same as the one we stayed previously though except for some additional gadgets in the bathrooms.

.

Just love how comprehensive their toiletries are…

.

.

The last time we were there, Baby G was still very much a non-walking baby so she was oblivious to her surroundings. However, this round she is older and knew that she can have so much fun!

.

.

Of course we can’t leave Darrius out…

.

.

And here is the view like from our window…

No view of the twin towers though but who cares??? 😛

The highlight of our stay is of course having fun at the roof top pool @ the Sky Bar located on the 33rd floor. This is also Baby G’s first time playing in the jacuzzi…

.

.

She was hesitant in the beginning but quickly warmed up and enjoyed tremendously playing in the water. We were lucky again as there were no other hotel guests using the jacuzzi.

After spending about an hour in the pool, we went back to our room to clean up and discovered that the housekeeping staff had brought the playpen into our room…

.

.

We were unsure where to eat as it started to drizzle so we took the buggy ride to KLCC. Almost all the places we wanted to dine at were crowded so we settled ourselves at the food court. While taking a look around, I discovered a new stall selling this yummy set rice…

.

.

This plate cost me around RM10.90 (I think) and it comes with a cup of soft drink. For KL’s standard (KLCC area) this is considered as quite reasonable. PiggyBeng can’t find the stall so he ended up buying from another which was more expensive and with less item @_@

PiggyBeng left very early the next morning to meet his colleague so he did not go for the breakfast. Therefore, I brought the kids with me and we had a ‘blast’ there. 😛 In the afternoon met up with some mommies at KLCC for a quick lunch. On that day I received news that Japan was hit by the biggest earthquake and tsunami…

Did not snap any photos that day except when we visited the pool for a 2nd time…

.

.

On the following morning, it was a Saturday and PiggyBeng went to the breakfast with us. He was so happy to find some pure fruit juices being served…

.

.

So far, I still find the Gobo Chit Chat has one of the best breakfast among the hotels I’ve stayed so far…

.

.

Another item that caught PiggyBeng’s eyes was the coffee making machine located at the entrance…

.

.

He called it the Ultimate Coffee Experience.  Hotel guests can choose from the rack the types of coffee that they fancy and put it into the machine. It took less than 2 minutes and you’ll have a cuppa that filled with distinct coffee aroma. I did not even notice this facility before since I am not a coffee enthusiast. Normally hotel guests are given a flask of regular coffee/tea when they are being seated.

We checked out shortly after breakfast and moved to my parents’ place for another night. We drove back to Penang on Sunday morning. This round we did not dine in Saisaki again since my last experience I got the worst diarrhea in my entire life.
