Hard Rock Hotel

So, after my swimming lesson (which I'm an extremely SLOW learner), my friends and I went to 火锅之家 (Town Steamboat Restaurant) for dinner. Well, as usual, whenever I went to these buffet-style eateries, I tend to eat like all hell break loose. There's no stopping me until I feel that my stomach bloated and worth the money I paid. It's fun, really, crapping with friends while waiting for the food to cook.

Since all of us were too full to just go back to hostel and sleep (I swear my stomach got rounder after the meal!), we decided to go for the newly-opened Hard Rock Hotel at Batu Feringghi. Malaysia's first ever Hard Rock Hotel, it was really a beautiful and atmospheric place to stay and have some rock and roll food time, albeit small. We went inside the Hard Rock Cafe and it was blasting with fantastic musics sang by live band. People were relaxing and just having some beers and vodkas while listening to some classic and contemporary rock musics.

The iconic Hard Rock symbol...not very clear...

After our brief visit into Hard Rock Cafe, we entered the hotel itself. Man, the place is awesome. Decorated with pictures and outfits wore by famous rock and roll artistes such as The Supremes, Bon Jovi, and others, it's like a mini tour through the Hall of Rock and Roll. The Beatles seems to be the main artist in the hotel as there's quite a number of portraits and grafittis gracing the hotel. And their pool. I didn't get to enter the pool but from what I can see from the moody light, it would be a breath-taking view.

Their pool, though not the whole of it...

It's The Beatles!

My friend and I were playing with the idea of having our Maths Night here at the Hard Rock Hotel. It would be expensive, I'm pretty sure, but for this atmospheric feel, it totally worth it. We could have a Rock and Roll theme (I know, I know, how creative...) at their Ball Room or we could have our Night in the form of pool party. Hmm, must suggest it to the director of the programme.
