Happy Birthday Mommy's Little Minion!!

During last Raya Haji, we did a small birthday celebration for Ruzain. Yup he turns 3! I had to make an emergency phone call to my favorite baker *insta her at @zhadrathebaker * and she pulled through!! Since, minions is Ruzain's favorite "english" character, *ultraman is still his ultamate favorite Japanese character*, the theme for the cake was Minions! Hehe..

Venus Fort, Pallete Town and Pancakes!!

We took a free shuttle from Grand Pacific Le Daiba and end up in Venus Fort (only 10 mins). The last bus from Venus Fort back to our hotel is at 7.30pm so we need to rush as we reached there at about 5pm. Why venus fort? Well we were quite curious with the water fountain sculptures and shopping complex design which was quite different than what we have here in Malaysia.

During the evenings the weather seems to be much cooler and windy. The exterior of the complex was really bright and colourful. accompanied by interesting sound effects. We did not shop for anything here, just to see what Venus Fort got to offer:
  1. There is a branded item outlet 
  2. Odaiba ever famous Ferris wheel
  3. Toyota Megaweb
  4. Games Arcade

You sometimes will get the feel that you are walking under the sky outside. I really love the architectural design and the efforts put into building this place.

Nike Outlet

Beautiful sculptures and fountain

Just look at the detail!

We then walked outside and found an amusement park. Farissa begged for us to go into the arcade but I sternly told her that we are going to Disneysea the next day! Which already cost us lots of money. Huhu.

Colourful Ferris Wheel
We already had some food back to the hotel. So, we decided to take some break from walking and tried out the pancakes here (right opposite the Ferris Wheel). Oh yes, and Farissa had some french fries to go with her pancakes.

Mix berries pancake with whip cream

Figuring out how to categories the rubbish properly :p
On our way out, we stop by the Toyota Megaweb. There actually tons of things to do here. But as were running quite late and trying our best to catch the last bus, we had to skip trying out anything. However, a few photo shots are in order!!

Trying out some Toyota?

Odaiba, Surabaya @ Aquacity and Grand Pacific Le Daiba Review

We arrive at the hotel quite early which was around 11 am, so our rooms was not ready. The reception informed us that we could leave our luggage with them and check in later at 2.30pm. As it was nearing lunch time, we decided to scout at the nearest shopping complex to the hotel which was Aquacity! It was a stone throw away from the hotel.

Rainbow bridge Odaiba was super close to the hotel.

Tok Ayah and Ruzain walking under the covered walkaway
We discovered that Aquacity is like any other shopping malls here in Malaysia and It does offer 2 halal restaurants (not certified halal though) in the premise. One is an Indonesian restaurant Surabaya (it does not offer pork) and the other is The Oven which sell American Buffet style (also not selling pork).

Stroller Carrying our many2 bags

In front of the Restaurant
We ordered a couple of dishes and the lunch set was also good. One set will cost you about RM40 per person. Our little family of Mr. Bob and the kids ordered some individual dishes and white rice *I was quite surprise that the rice was Japanese rice**Sticky in nature* One dish will range about RM 30. The omelet cost us about RM 30 where as in Malaysia you could get it in RM 7? Hehe.

Discussing on today's planning

Ruzain and his art work

This is our server for the day. She could well speak Indonesian of course.

Mr Bob

Surabaya menu, the dish set that cost 3580 yen which is about RM110.

Mr. Bob's beverage of choice (non alcoholic)

Omelet with veges

Chili Kang Kung *so nice* must order

Fish with lemon grass. Super tasty as well.
After lunch we walk around Aquacity to check out the many shops available. We stop by the G-Shock watch shop as the prices weren't all that bad. Very nice and made in Japan ;). There are also other odd looking but fantastic shop with interesting design.

Nane was telling Ruzain that this is one of Ultraman's watches
Plastic food display *very famous in Japan*
The Candy Museum with many candies for Halloween
Longboard Cafe. Such a vintage design. Looooove it!
Then, we took a stroll back to the hotel but not before stopping for a photo of a mini Statue of Liberty and the Rainbow Bridge *yup again*.

Follow pose
Everyone is ready?

Beautiful sight isn't it?
What's wrong with my face *gasp!!!*

Tokyo teleport building. Very colourful at night!

I had chosen Grand Pacific Le Daiba hotel because of these reasons:

  • Luxury hotel with reasonable price - RM 4++ per night
  • Disney good neighbor hotel which provide free shuttle to and fro Disney Resort
  • Location near to halal dining at Aquacity
  • Free wifi *the most crucial reason* Haha!
  • Super near to Daiba Station
  • Provide free shuttle around Odaiba
Would I recommend this hotel? I most definitely would and repeat staying here if I got the chance.

Rooms are quite spacious considering we are in Japan

Bathroom with a tub *nice*

They provide a lot of interesting amenities, not the usual ones like, hairband, face soap, bath towel, hair brush, etc.
Beds are cosy and comfy

Eco friendly big bottle of body wash, conditioner and shampoo

Love those huge mirrrors
