My AMARI WATERGATE BANGKOK Experience #AmazingThailand

Amari Watergate Spa and Dinner-58.jpg

AMARI WATERGATE is a 5-star hotel in Central Bangkok. It’s strategically located in front of Platinum Mall near the Pratunam shopping area.  

I was a bit apprehensive about going to Bangkok because of the Martial Law situation there, but Amari Watergate gave me a warm Thai welcome. This erased all my doubts and fears about the safety and security in the capital. 

Check out my Amari Watergate Bangkok experience…

WOLO Bukit Bintang Boutique Hotel (A Review) #Agoda

WOLO Bukit Bintang-2.jpg

WOLO is one of the best places for Filipinos to stay in Kuala Lumpur. 

This cute boutique hotel (which reminds me of The Henry in Cebu) is:

  • Located at the heart of the shopping district — Bukit Bintang,
  • Walking distance from the best hawker places LOT 10 HUTONG and JALAN ALOR,
  • Right beside the Monorail Bukit Bintang station, and
  • The rate is very competitive versus other 5 star hotels.

This is where we kick off our AwesomeMalaysia Kuala Lumpur experience.

TOUS LES JOURS, Kuala Lumpur

WOLO Bukit Bintang-35.jpg
Tous les Jours is a French Bakery-inspired Cafe, which originated in Korea. Their flagship store in KL is bigger than the TLJs you’d see here in Manila.

Tous Les Jour Breakfast-14.jpg
Morning breakfast opens a bit late at 8am. 

WOLO Bukit Bintang-36.jpg
I love their freshly baked breads in the morning. 

Foot Massage and Bukit Bintang at Night!-25.jpg
Macaron and cakes are available for dessert.

WOLO Bukit Bintang-31.jpg
They have a mini store for gourmet spreads and other products.

Foot Massage and Bukit Bintang at Night!-24.jpg
If you are a Wolo guest, some of their room packages come with breakfast coupons to be redeemed at Tous Les Jours.

Check out the food menu: Breakfast, Hot Sandwich, Tartine, Soup & Salad  | Drinks

Tous Les Jour Breakfast-6.jpg
Croque-Monsieur (RM 6.50)

For a quick breakfast, order this grilled ham and cheese sandwich with a nice toasty cheese on top.

Tous Les Jour Breakfast-9.jpg
TLJ Breakfast (RM 12.9). Sunny side up, beef bacon, potatoes, a lice of sour dough with a side salad.

This is the western style breakfast, which is cooked upon order. 

IMG_7200.jpg
Spinach & Mushroom Cheese Panini (RM 16). Sauteed button mushroom & shitake mushroom & spinach with fresh mozzarella & emborg guoda cheese topped on sour dough with a side salad.

I personally like their paninis with a generous serving of ingredients and can be shared between two.

Foot Massage and Bukit Bintang at Night!-29.jpg
At night, you’ll see a lot of young people hanging out at the cafe.

Foot Massage and Bukit Bintang at Night!-32.jpg
The view of the Bukit Bintang and Jalan Sultan Ismail intersection at night.

WOLO Bukit Bintang-32.jpg
The second floor is the restaurant section with a self-service counter.

WOLO Bukit Bintang-33.jpg
My favorite spot is this library section of the cafe.

Tous Les Jour Breakfast-13.jpg
It’s nice to start your day in KL with a modern French cafe breakfast…a welcome break from the numerous hawker stalls outside. And most of the service staff at TLJ are Filipinos, which is always a treat. 🙂

It’s also considered a Foodie Haven where one can experience Spiral, the Best Buffet in Manila, and explore authentic French cuisine and wine. It also has  Le Spa, which is one of the best couples spas in Manila today.

We got invited by Sofitel to check out the Ultimate Foodie Staycation experience in Manila …
