It was a totally impulsive decision. I was chatting to my friend on MSN earlier this week when I suddenly thought, “Hey, won’t it be great to just check into a nice hotel after work tonight and work?”
Of course, working wasn’t the primary agenda of this nocturnal sojourn….watching TV was. ;)
Thus, I booked a room in the afternoon through the Internet and went to pick her up after work. However, a series of unfortunate events ended up with us checking in only after 8 pm.
We were so occupied in…er, our work *cough* that we ordered room service.
The lamb shank was atrocious – almost inedible, but the wine sure hit the spot.
We spent a total of six hours in the room before checking out at 2:22 am and going home coz we both have to work the next day.
It’s such a waste of money right?
Internet RM 30 (told you we were working)
Room service dinner RM 192.50
Hotel room RM 325.00
Service charge RM 32.50
Tax RM 16.25
Total: RM 596.25
Watching TV, talking and chilling out in an impromptu hotel excursion: Priceless
The point of my post is that sometimes we do things that may not make much financial sense. However, I’ve come across a promotion that really rewards you. I present the Every Month Bonus XXL by Xpax.
Why XXL? Xpax is DOUBLING their existing bonus when you use RM 50 or more in November and December 2009. Their monthly bonus is now bigger and better. Check out the details here.
I am using the Xpax BB so this is great news for me. At least I’ll still be able to communicate after burning that amount in six hours earlier this week. :p
P/S – Seriously, we did get some work done. Honest. Cross my heart and hope to die. I don’t remember watching TV though. ;)
