Also her grandma 🧓🏻 loves ❤️ to wear the wooden clogs 👡 木屐, she wore as normal sandals, not just for toilet 🚽 though. She still recalled she loves ❤️ to wear, walk 🚶🏻‍♀️around & play with her grandma 🧓🏻 wooden clogs 👡 when she was a kid 🧒🏻 Just because of the clogs 👡 sound hitting on the ground 👣 “kick kok….kick kok…” Ha…Ha…😂🤣😆

She was checked-in 🔑 to a Premier Family Suite (4️⃣ pax) superb early 🔑🚪@ 1.30am after her Redang Island 🌴 🏖🏝 trip to join her media friends 👭👭

Guess what❓⁉️

Her Grab driver 🚖🚕 has sent her to the nearby named Pacific Express Hotel 🏢 Central Market instead. This is because this hotel 🏢 just 2️⃣ weeks old during her stay🛏🛋🚿🚽, too new 🆕 & yet to be updated with its address📍in the Grab app 📲 She has shared her experience with the hotel management 👨🏻‍💼👩🏻‍💼 so that they will connect with Grab to update its hotel address📍into the app 📲 to offer greater convenience to its hotel guests then 👬👭👫

1️⃣st impression when she got on the bed 🛏 to catch up her sleep 💤😴 , she loves ❤️ the light & soft blanket, an energised rest for sure 😌

She was impressed with its go green 💚 & sustainable initiative 👍🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 by setting up iron board & water 💦💧 dispenser at each floor for its hotel guests 👭👫👬, it definitely reduce ⬇️ electricity 🔌 & plastic wastage, bravo‼️👏🏻
