excited Angs on the cab which we had a hard time in getting due to the heavy downpour
Happy to see that there was a baggage drop off point... means can 手空空,脚空空地上船咯!!!
Alvin enjoying the free cookie after checked-in
The ship was just magnificent!!!! super duper humongous!!!!
my sea-pass; my entrance ticket to all the shows, my credit card for the 4 days 3 nights ahead....
mandatory photo shoot
our room - 7502
our view before cruising off... =)
was super thrilled to find out that our room was overlooking the bow of the ship.... somemore could see the helipad too.. =)
was even funnier to see this sign near the smoke detector in our room... someone must had done something silly for this notice to be put up... wahahahaha
small sitting area in our cabin
Alfred & Alvin's room - 7506
these two boys were really making the cabin their home sweet home for the next few days....
cute gingerbread house at the dinning area on deck 11
hawker style where we had to 'snatch' our own table
food was really disappointing; limited variety, pasta was too dry, fish was too fishy, the mood set was just wrong... =S
so we went to check out the ship;
the Jacuzzi area
the rock climbing wall
can imagine how bored we were to be playing table tennis
evacuated for safety briefing @ 5pm
all gathered in one of the lounge for the briefing
went to look-see-look-see at the casino
and attended one of the complimentary lessons just to pass time... hahaha
others go to the casino to gamble, these two went for the snacks provided....
one of the game which caught our attention
just cos of the numerous wads of bills dangling in the machine
wad of bills for the lucky one!!! not us though... =(
the star on the card indicated that we had signed the indemnity form for rock climbing and could go ahead with our climb once the mat dried up from the rain ... =)
there was really nothing much to do and we ended up in the games room
we made do with whatever was available....
black tiles means 花 or 大牌... it was quite an interesting game... wahahahaha... surprisingly, Alfred who had the least mahjong-ing experience was the overall winner....
|my lousy tiles in one of the game|
decided to check out the dining hall once more
Haix... =( ....失望到极点
Mr Ang's escargots
Alvin's chips with spinach dip
my overcooked broiled fillet of Atlantic cod
super bloody rare steak of Alfred's and Alvin's
A more well done one for Mr Ang
Main dish was really only so-so-so but the desserts saved the day.... =)
spoiled for choice.... couldn't decide till Qing Ling, the waitress who served our table told us that we could actually order more than one!!!! She basically opened the flood gate to multiple orders lo.... so much that we sort of messed up their serving routine... oopx....
each of us at the table had at least 2 desserts each....the boys had 3 each.... wahahahha....
Alvin's creme brulee
all of us ordered one of this mango pudding each
strawberry charlotte... Alfred's and my favourite
Mr Ang's favourite just because it was so chocolaty
End of day 1 of much food and more food to come.....
