Eco Tree Hotel @Malacca

Parking is at the back of the hotel. It's free for hotel guests. Had to walk a bit to the front entrance. Maybe a problem for you lazy bum-bums out there. We were quite impressed with the decor when we stepped through the front door. Looking good so far.The reception was at the Mezzanine floor via an escalator. Okay, at least they didn't ask us to wall climb or anything. The lobby look exactly same with the photos they upload to their website. Luxury and clean! 
Eco Tree Hotel的停車場就在酒店的後面,進去的時候告訴security guard說你們是要來check -in 的,就可以順利進去啦(Eco Tree 的住客是不用給停車費的,check in 之後receptionist 會一張voucher,只要放在車子裡面,就可以隨意進出了)停車場的缺點就是離大門口太遠啦!而且有沒有捷徑,下午還要頭頂著大太陽走到前面去。不過,一進到門口的時候總沒有讓人失望,實況和Eco Tree Hotel裏頭的照片根本就是一模一樣的~Lobby就在二樓 (M Floor),搭手扶梯(沒要我們爬上去就很好了)一上到去就可以看到reception在你的右前方 。






Been there last March 14. This is my first time to stay here at room 314, thankiew to Reservation Exet WeiWei, she know 314 is my anniversary and arrange this special no room to us. Away from your smartphone when u gonna take the lift and scan with your card. Looks and feels like a LUXURIOUS HOTEL (or rather, a hotel under the well established brands like Hilton and Shang) but price is quite reasonable, only RM198 for Executive King room, breakfast is included.
3月14號是我一次來到這間酒店,房間也剛好是314,這要謝謝 Reservation Exet WeiWei,知道這一天是我們的一週年紀念日而特別替我們安排的特別號碼。搭電梯的時候記得要將手機遠離scanner,因為手機的電破會干擾到 scanner, 結果我們在電梯裏一直 scan 不到,一直上不去。房間的裝潢很奢華,感覺和希爾頓酒店等等沒有太大的差別,不過,這裏的價錢可是很合理的!Executive Deluxe King只要 RM198,而且還包括兩個人的早餐喔


The room was really nice with comfort bed. Room was tip top terms of cleanlines what I can say for housekeeping team is Thumbs up and keep it up! Being a new hotel, everything in there still looks very clean and of course, very new. My room was an Executive Deluxe with King size bed. Although the room was relatively small with not much walking space, it is comfortable enough for a short stay, especially for couples.
房間裡面很簡單乾淨,大床也很柔軟舒服。值得一提的是這裏的house keeping 服務真的一流啊!每個角落都乾乾淨淨的!因為鼻子敏感,所以稍微有一點點灰塵都可以讓我敏感一整天,可是來到這裏卻完全沒有這樣的問題。我們訂的房間是executive deluxe king,雖然房間不大,可以活動的空間不多,不過這對於情侶來說是非常足夠的了。

Room service menu is on the table.
房內點餐的菜單都放在桌子上了。



We was quite impressed with the decor. Nice, stylish and simple. the bathroom has the glass-sliding-door version. Shower door is also glass. The wardrobe, safety box and hair dryer is inside the bathroom, but no toothbrushes and toothpaste provided.
我們最滿意的其實就是洗手間了。簡單,時尚!洗手間內的門都是採用橫拉的落地玻璃式。衣櫥,保險箱和吹風筒都在浴室裏,只有牙刷和牙膏是沒有被提供的。

I think it's a very nice hotel and definitely worth considering if you dont need to be right at the shopping belt or at the door steps of Jonker Street. Recommended~
個人認為這是非常值得的一間酒店,大前提是你沒有什麼購物慾,也沒有想要距離雞場街只有幾步路的距離的話,他是屬於非常方便的。

There's a room tips for you guys: The skydeck on the rooftop  doubles as a pub on weekend nights, with live music being played. Needless to say, the higher your room is, the louder you will hear the music.
這裏有一個小小的提示給大家:如果大家想要有個好眠的話,就不要拿太高的房間。想知道,越高的房間就越接近eco skydeck 360,就會聽到越大聲的音樂。

Danok Waterview Restaurant @Danok, Thailand

Waterview Restaurant is one of the most visited restaurant in Danok. The restaurant is located quite outside from the main town. The road lead to there is very small, so my family bring me to there before sunset.
Waterview 餐廳是Danok其中一個很值得去嘗一嘗的地方。餐廳就坐落在從Kastam Bukit Kayu Hitam 進來泰國的右手處。途中去Waterview餐廳的路又小又狹,建議第一次去的朋友們最好在日落之前就去啊!

When we walk to out sitting place, I got so fascinate by this place love how the decoration in a tradisional concept: kampung style decoration by using the dry coconut leaved to build the rood, low table for us to sit and pillow to support us when we are lazy. Another one great thing about this place is we have a fantastic view by overlooking the lake and hills. We feel so relax even though that day was a hot day and we feel like we are in sauna. 
還沒到門口就已經有服務生站在門口歡迎我們並且帶我們到座位上。一路走來,被這裡美麗的景色吸引得目不轉睛。這裡的裝潢是採用非常原始傳統的裝飾,屋頂是由乾椰葉造的,用餐的桌子也很低,必須坐在地板上(有坐墊)用餐,還有厚厚的枕頭讓我們靠著。吃過晚餐後可以就這麼躺著欣賞湖邊的風景還有享受徐徐吹來的風,很舒適。雖然當天的天氣真的熱得好像在做桑拿一樣,不過這一點也不影響我們的興致。
This shows how big is the restaurant and what I have been and what I have been told, if you do come during dinner or the night session, it would be even nicer as the whole restaurant is light up beautifully but will miss the scenery. I guess, we cannot take one stone kill two birds.
Dinner time, this place is usually very packed!
餐廳很大吧?!朋友告訴說我說晚上的風景更漂亮,不過卻看不見眼前的景色~魚與熊掌不能兼得,這也給了我們可以再來第二次的理由。而且,晚餐時間會超級滿的!想要在晚上來的朋友們,最好打個電話來訂桌子。

Besides that, the way they deliver the foods is quite interesting. They are using BOAT! Normally your dining table is beside the lake. After you order the foods, they will drive the boat and cross over the lake to your dining table. Then, a waiter or waitress will take the foods from the boat to you!
這餐廳除了有著怡人的景色,還有一個更加吸引人的地方,那就是他們送上餐點的方式居然是用船來載?!這就是為什麼所有的用餐地點都會在湖邊的原因吧?他們會將餐點從在湖的另一頭的廚房用小船過來,一來不會影響食物的素質,而來速度夠快!很有趣對不對?

Their famous fried-pork
餐廳推薦的燒豬肉

Crab in claypot with "dong fun"
還有螃蟹冬粉



There is an interesting question! A lot of people always ask me : Where is Danok?
Danok is located at South Thailand. Using North-South Highway, move to north until the end! Right after you pass Kastam Bukit Kayu Hitam to Thailand, the place is Danok. Malaysians need passport or boader pass in order to go to Thailand. 
很多朋友都問我說Danok到底在哪裏?是什麼地方?
Danok就在泰國南部,也就是每年舉辦泰國潑水節的地方。從Malaysia,通過Kastam Bukit Kayu Hitam的地方就是Danok了。馬來西亞公民需要Passport 或者是Border Pass才可以進入泰國。

If you still don't know, I think Google Maps can help you!
如果你還是不清楚那是什麼地方,或許Google Map可以幫到你 !

Waterview restaurant is a beautiful place to dine at, and you should come here when you are in Dannok for whatever reason it is.
Waterview餐廳除了環境優美之外,食物的品質也達到一定的水準,而且價錢不算貴,喜歡吃泰國餐的朋友可以帶家人或一大群朋友來這裡用餐。
