I love staycation. I love getting away from the noise pollution at home and some privacy with my husband.

I was searching for staycation deals and I knew that Safra has some joint promotion with the Millennium Group. If your boyfriend /husband is a Safra menber, you can go to the website and view their current list of promotions. They have staycation deals at Copthorne King's Hotel at $190 nett in a night stay in Superior Room with a pair of movie passes, Studio M Hotel at $212 nett per night stay with a pair of movie passes etc. I was looking if they have any promotion at M Social Singapore but unfortunately, there was no promotion. But anyway, we wrote in to them to see if there is a better rates for Safra members. The rates given by them were slightly cheaper (maybe about $10 cheaper?) with breakfast included at about $240 per night.

We went ahead with it since it's been a while since we went for a get-away. 

M Social is situated at Robertson Quay and among the hotels under Millennium Group. It is a great place to chill and relax and the night view was awesome.

The lobby was really small as they can only serve 4 customers at one time. Almost all of the guests are young adults. Some of them check in as a couple while many others, came to celebrate hen's night or just a simple gathering with friends.

Love and I booked a room at Loft gallery. I felt in love with the the tall ceiling and chic layout shown on the website. We felt that the price was reasonable and so we proceed with the booking.

Ok, let's look at the real photos:

The upper deck

Took a photo of the room on the stairs.

The check in time was 3pm, and their check out time was 12pm. Our room was at level 9 and right at the end of the corridor. The room was really posh and comfortable that you wouldn't want to leave the room once you were inside. The TV is at the upper deck and was separated from the rest area.

Rain shower!

The toilet is a panel of see through glass but rest assured that you can turn the blind on inside. The vanity is outside the toilet so you just have to brush or wash your hands in the living hall.

Opposite us is a residential building. with a nice pool when you looked down from our window.

Some of them were having breakfast on their balcony!

What I like about M Social is the luxury decor and high ceiling. The bed was also comfy and I had a good sleep throughout the night. I slept at 11.30pm and woke at 8am. It was really shiok! The TV has sports channel, so in case your husband/ boyfriend want to watch their soccer at night, they can go to the upper deck to watch and cheer without disturbing you.

The variety for breakkie wasn't that sumptuous but it was good enough for a boutique hotel. Breakfast is at Beasts and Butterflies.

The pastry is good.

If you are going there by car, do note that they do not have free parking. Xiong paid below $20 for an overnight parking.

We finally took our keys on 5th Nov. It was long long wait since we applied our house in 2013. Initially, I didn't want to apply house with him because I was only a year in my job. I didn't have any money then and how was I supposed to afford a $300,000 flat? But anyway, Xiong was enthusiastic ( I knew he would marry me) and so we went ahead.

On the 5th Nov, Xiong and I woke up to an early morning. Our appointment was 8.15am and it was raining. I couldn't laze on my bed any longer or otherwise we would be late for the appointment. Xiong drove to Toa Payoh Hub and parked his car at the basement.

Before going to the queue, we had to make a payment for fire insurance. It is kinda like an insurance to protect our walls in case of fire. After that, we had to queue to take our keys.

It was about 45 minutes discussion at the HDB. Our CPF were totally wiped out and we still had about $200k to pay off. We took a loan of 20 years, hoping to pay off as soon as we can so that we wouldn't have to pay so much for the interest. We had agreement in mind so we didn't take a full day to think about the loan. After taking the keys, we didn't go to open our new house. We had a stay cation at M Social and were only allowed to open our new house on 9th Nov.


Before opening, we went to seek advice on what to do and how to pray. We were advised to buy Huat Kueh, 5 oranges, 进盒, joss stick and some kim zua.

We placed the items on the floor with red disposable plate. While praying, we have to say all the goods words, like informing the god whose this house belong to, pray for abundance joy and good health etc. We prayed to the 4 corners as well as mentioned by Xiong and my aunty. While waiting for the joss stick to burn to near half, we were mingling with the electricity and water point where we couldn't switch them on earlier. We tried to switch them on with the allan key provided by the HDB but we couldn't to. Luckily, his brother who was staying nearby came to see us and helped us with the allan key. He managed to turn on the water supply! All the switches were working well and good. After 30 minutes, Xiong brought the joss stick and kim zua to the burning urn at the void deck. 

I was happily snapping photo of our new house:

And... toilet

I am supposed to put the oranges and huat kueh on the highest point in my house. The highest point I have at home is our toilet bowls. My dad saw and and he was like wtf when i showed him this photo.

Before leaving the house, we scattered salt and rice on the floor . Not sure what it means but i believe it meant good. 

Alright, that's be all for today. Will keep us updated on the our renovation progress soon!
