Unemployment Chapter 1: Golden Palm Tree Resort & Spa, Sepang

Some say unemployment is capitalism's way of getting you to plant a garden. Yes I'm planting mine, planting an eyeful experience from little part of the world. Or shall I put it in another way; I'm on an intensive training program to become a Professional Couch Guard. Sounds better?

I've mentioned in my previous post, I spent 3 days 2 nights at the Golden Palm Tree resort with my dearest one, just two days after quitting my job. You gotta start somewhere close before the journey to the further place.

Let's not mention the dirty beach side and focus on the hotel surrounding and it's facilities. Look aside, I bet ya all know how beautiful and cosy the place is. We had some fun driving around thanks to Waze the powderful GPS apps, but thank goodness we arrived just in time to catch the beautiful sunset.

It wasn't my first visit to this resort, I went there back in 2011 thanks to the courtesy of Carlsberg Where's The Party. It didn't change much but instead it looked like it aged a little.

So what exactly can you do in a no-man's land for 3 days 2 nights?

1. Dig into the scrumptious hotel buffet spread. My secret?
I took the whole jar of Nutella to accompany a waffles tower. *shhhhhh* :x

2. Take a slow walk by the beach. You might want to apply some bug repellent before walking in, we ended up getting bites that itch for a week and it leaves fugly bite marks. :'(

3. Spend an afternoon or two by the infinity pool with a couple of beers. If you're on a budget trip, you can BYO the drinks of your choice.

4. Drive out. There are plenty of good food places around the area, but in case you just wanna laze, you could always visit their in house restaurants. The food was OK with reasonable hotel prices.
