Thirty8



Thought I'd blog about the lovely dinner I had with my family last Saturday at Thirty8, Grand Hyatt to celebrate my Making's 50th Birthday. Both my parents couldn't join (mama + step dad, papa + step mum) and it's times like these that I'm glad I have my driver's license haha. I drove to KL with Zicky in my mum's car and managed to reach there early. We all walked from KLCC together to Grand Hyatt because a lot of roads were closed because of the ASEAN Summit. Upon arriving to the hotel, I was surprised to see that everyone who wanted to enter the hotel had to go through airport-like security. Yknow, bag scans and walking through metal detectors.  

We finally got to the top via the express lift that takes us right to the 38th floor. I've always wanted to go to Thirty8 ever since my stay at Trader's with Mel for NYE. I remember sitting by the window with Mel, staring at the night city skyline, and the building that was across our view was Grand Hyatt. We could see the restaurant from our room and we were wondering what people were doing haha. All fancy-schmancy even from far away. 

So anyway, Thirty8 is such a date-worthy place ! The restaurant was dimly lit. There was live music playing, candles and rose petals on the table, and oh the magnificent view of the city. Siiiigh. The moment I sat down, I sent Irfan a picture of the view and told him I wish he was there with me. Irfan and I love the city, so I can just imagine us having a nice meal together and talking about everything with that one heck of a view.  #dategoals ! Hahaha okay Izza stop it. 

I love personalised everything. Be it letters or my name printed or written somewhere, I just love feeling special (who doesn't, honestly haha). 
The table setting was so nice and I was pleasantly surprised to see my name in a frame on the table. 



Of course, I was seated at the cool table (read : kids) hahaha. We're the young ones in the family (besides my baby sibs), so at the table it was me, Hannah, Zicky, Zaim and Harraz. The food was amazing, for appetisers we were served sushi, grilled tiger prawns and some vege. And then we had soup, followed by the main course ; Braised Wagyu beef, mashed potatoes, fish fillet and wok fried rice. All of them were so. yummy. I'm salivating just thinking about the beef !! Eating the beef and the mashed potatoes together = rainbow explosions of flavour in my mouth. It was too good, I swear. For dessert, we had Key Lime Pie with butterscotch sauce, a macaron and fruits. It was good but I've had better desserts (maybe because I'm more of a caramel slash chocolate person and not lime).

I have yet to master the art of taking good photos in low light. Still learning how to use the settings, a lot of my pictures from the dinner either were overexposed or just super blurry ! But I got some good shots anyway. Also credits to my family's iPhones for some of the photos.

    1. Waalaikummusalam and hii ! If you get on the DL with more than 3.75 CGPA for 3 long semesters in a row, you are on the President's List and you're eligible to apply for the 'President's Scholarship'. I'm not sure of the amount, but I think it's still quite a lot. President's List recipients also get to wear a special robe during convocation and also receive a special award if I'm not mistaken.

    1. No, sorry ! You can try emailing them (they take a while to reply tho) or go to MSU's counselling and communication department and ask them about the fees.

    1. Hi, thank you ! For exams, you just need to do lots of practice. Buy the SPM workbooks and just do as much as you can. In general, try listening to more english songs, watch more tv shows / movies in English and try speaking English a lot more ! Doesn't matter if you have grammatical errors or not, as long as you're trying, it's already really good :)

    5. Thank youu ! I think the price here is about 1400 (?) but someone I know got it from the US and sold it to me for only a fraction of the price. So I bought it and I probably won't be buying a bag until the next few years haha. I think they sell it online for cheaper, ada my friend bought it from this personal shopper from Instagram for around 600++
