The plan was to go on a three day holiday here
and just simply laze the days away as we savor the moment that we have finally reached 1 year of togetherness....But due to unforeseen but very welcome circumstances, we opted to cancel the travel plan. But an important milestone cannot be just celebrated at home, so Hubby and I decided to have a staycation. We are staycations fanatics, as you can see from here and here. And this time round, we booked a one night stay at Hard Rock Hotel Resorts World Sentosa.
Hard Rock Hotel Singapore received the Gold Award for: Best 5 in Asia in the Category of HAPA Signature Deluxe Hotel. The hotel's tag line is "Rock and roll attitude meets five-star service" True to its word it's rock and roll attitude all right with pictures of rock and roll stars and other pop stars decorating the place.
I was kind of weirded out though by the pictures hanged above the bed, I felt like someone was watching us while we were sleeping. Ha ha ha, just making it obvious that I am not a rock and roll fan. However, i love the sitting nook by the window. It was cozy and comfy and the view from our window was the pool. Love it!

The overall stay was A-OK. Probably I was not very impress kasi nga, I'm not a rock and roll fan. But the pool was another story. I am inlove with it. It is huge, with a pool bar! One side of it was made to make it appear like a beach, they filled it with white sand with few coconut trees dotting the sides of the pool. It was like you are transported to some island get-away.

Yes, despite cancelling the Phuket trip, we celebrated our anniversary in style. Hard Rock Hotel baby! But the best part of it was that we did not spend a single dime for our stay (sans our dinner and breakfast of course (since the price was not inclusive of a buffet breakfast, that is my best part pa naman of staying in a hotel ...sadness).
As an advocate of the good life for less, I scoured the hotel deals at Agoda.com, and fortunately was able to get a discounted rate of 50% off. Cool! And then, I offsetted the remaining balance from my company benefit of a healthy lifestyle. Total price = $0 sgd. How cool is that? Healthy lifestyle indeed!
The best things in life do come by for free... and what makes it priceless? That I was spending it with the love of my life. Ahhhh bliss. And now thats what I call a good life.
How about you, what are some tips you can share to live a good life for less? This frugal wifey and momma to be would love to know.
