Pullman Waterfront Miri

I was in Miri beginning of this month, on transit to Brunei for Thanis's wedding dinner. We stayed a night at Pullman Waterfront Miri.  Yien and Jian went out to explore Miri town while I stayed back in the room to catch up with my family.

The Pullman Miri Waterfront is the latest 5-Star hotel addition to the Miri Resort City home to 19 of Sarawak’s 32 ethnic groups and some of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders such as Niah Cave, Loagan Bunut National Park, Lambir Hills National Park and gateway to the world-renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gunung Mulu National Park. Miri is also a diving haven with extensive reefs that are amongst the best and healthiest in the whole of Malaysia. A modern, young and vibrant city built on the wealth of oil and timber. Also, Miri is a popular entry for shopping bargains, thriving nightlife, handicrafts, weekend markets, fresh seafood and delectable local cuisine.
The 24-storey Pullman Miri Waterfront is ideally located at the Miri Waterfront Commercial Centre hub towering majestically by the Miri river with spectacular view of the city, Miri river mouth overlooking the South China Sea. A 5-star International chain hotel and the highest building in Miri is dedicated to discerning leisure and corporate travelers. The 328-room full-service hotel and spa is casually elegant in style, smart architectural and relaxed in spirit offering the ultimate luxury experience. The scenic views fronting the South China Sea, Miri river and the city makes it an ideal option for both relaxing getaways and business meetings in a breathtaking setting.
The Pullman Miri Waterfront provides superb accommodations, state-of-the-art meeting and banquet facilities including a Grand Ballroom, a Junior Ballroom and 7 other function rooms of varying sizes. The Grand Ballroom and some of the meeting rooms feature floor to ceiling windows. The Food & Beverage outlets include Pullman Kitchen, Dining Room, Le Café by Pullman, Drinking Ape Bar & Lounge, Splash Pool Bar, Executive Lounge while its range of wellness facilities are the fitness center, a 1.2M deep, 32M long and 20M wide infinity swimming pool, children’s pool, Spa, Jacuzzi and Sauna. 
Their lobby is very open and spacious.

After the check in, we went to our room. As usual Pullman room is very big and spacious.  Pullman Miri room design is quite different from Pullman, Kuching and Pullman, Bangsar.  The room in Pullman Miri is been divided by the partition which are the wardrobe. So the bath room is covered by the partition. The mini bar is hidden away in a cupboard.

A video of the room tour I did on that day.

Their bathroom is something that I have been loving.  Big window next to the bath tub. Isn't it nice while having your evening bath with the starlight in the sky or a beautiful scenery of the sunset.

The view from my window is so pretty.

They have a very beautiful infinity pool too.  I did not get a chance to take picture of it.  Maybe you guys should go there and check it out yourself and snap a pic for me! :)

Wait for their restaurant review.

Wine and Dine @ BTB (Bon Ton Bistro), China House Kuching

Is been awhile where our group of blogger get together for a nite of wine and dine and lotsa lotsa laughter and crazy stuff.  Would like to thanks BTB, China House for inviting us to their media night last nite.

Our dinner start with a cocktail reception at Vine & Single. Vine and Single is a wine and single malt room, armed with an upright piano, and a bar with a wide array of drinks alcoholic or otherwise, as well as an adjoining private room to fit up to sixty persons for an exclusive evening soiree, private lunch or cocktail party.

Then we are given a tour around the China House. First was Kopi C Café, the unique place to be if you wish to have all-day breakfast. The cake table that holds and displays over thirty cakes at any one time is certainly a sight to behold. The Library holds an extensive range of books that are published on topics related to that of art, history, literature, and more. The Reading Room that combines books and magazines from ChinaHouse’s very own Library for in-house browsing. Customers often walk in to the Reading Room for some peace and quiet, but there are occasions when the room is used for events and activities that may not involve reading. Next are Servery Bar, which is set in between BTB Restaurant and The Canteen, and functions to meet the orders and demand of beverages, from both outlets mentioned. After that are The Canteen is where to head for street and comfort food, as well as for Friday and Saturday night live music performances. The multiple purpose hall fits up to 150 (seating only), and aside from its weekly music events, is also used for dining events, and other gatherings that involve large numbers of guests. Last but not least are the Round Tower, which houses rustic furniture and other antiques – perfect gifts for your friends, or yourself.

Our tour ended at BTB is a large dining room with rustic furnishing that serves modern western style dishes influenced by an eclectic mix of Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines.

Stay tune for the hidden agenda behind the wine glass.  RLOL! Guess who is that?

Crispy Mixed Flatbread with Homemade Harissa & Basil Pesto

I chose Corn & Basil Soup with Lemon Rocket Salad Garnish. The first taste was ok as the soup is very mild in flavour although there is basil in the soup. The more you sip on the soup the flavour get better. It has that lemony taste to it which make it very refreshing kind of soup.  It was yummy!

For my main, I had Seared Fillet of Beef with Mashed Potatoes, Butter Spinach, Mustard Relish & Balsamic Sauce.

I ordered my fillet medium, and it was server perfectly.  RLOL! I am scared of bloody meat! Pairing the balsamic sauce and the mustard with the beef was perfect.  It was well balance of sweet and nutty flavour.  The mashed potato was creamy and sweet.
