where:: bintan @ indonesia
when:: 24 nov ~ 25 nov
who:: Rebecca, Qiuyi, Krista, Pei Chin, Mei Qing
what:: sun + sand + sea!
this has gotta be one of the MOST-FUN getaways ever!!!
the weather during this weekend there was FREAKING GOOD
the sun was blazing-hot for both days! wootx.
DAY 01 ~ 24 NOV (SAT)
boarded the ferry at tanah merah at 1105h on sat
we had breakfast at the terminal before boarding, yumx.
on the ferry!
it was an hour's ride over to the resort
we rested & reserved energy for the day, hoho.
arrival at bintan!
the weather was SHIOK la!
- the big stars!
there was a shuttlebus that fetched us from the terminal to our resort - nirwana gardens
we were lucky!
we could check-in earlier than the expected time =)
Krista had paid for this villa - banyu biru villa
it's a 2-storey bungalow! woohoo.
Qiuyi in front of our villa!
it's a really comfortable place
a big living room + dining area
then there were 2 bedrooms, wootx.
after doing some unpacking,
we changed into the clothes for water activities! hoho.
this was the view from the reception area
we started with taking a ride on the banana boat!
it looked more like a pencil than a banana, oops.
i took the first seat,
followed by Rebecca, Qiuyi, Krista
we were pulled by a powerboat in the sea
& we had to hold on to a handle in front
it was a short 10-min ride,
but it was super FUN!!!
i nearly slipped off initially,
but got used to the force after a while,
the 4 of us held on & die-die didn't wanna fall into the sea, wahaha! =P
no matter how the powerboat turned & sped,
we were hanging on tight! hoho.
it was only towards the end,
when we were going back to shore,
when Bec pushed me down into the sea, haha!
Krista fell off too, hoho.
LOVE IT! =)
we then had a light lunch at a cafe along the beach
before going out to the sun to play on the white sandy beach! hoho.
on the beach!
the white sandy beach~
we also went into the sea &
kept getting slapped in the face by the currents
the water was so clear,
the sand was so soft!
we played till 4pm+,
then went back to our villa to wash-up
we had to catch the bus to pasar oleh-oleh! =)
hoho. BIG SMILE!
we first settled at cafe helo helo for dinner!
it was juz like singapore's zi char,
but tastier + cheaper! heex.
we had fried chicken wings, seafood toufu, one HUGE plate of kangkong, fried calamari, nestle prawns, etc.
it was an al-fresco dining area,
we were eating under the full moon!
cafe helo helo
we shopped around the pasar,
especially at the polo ralph store!
there was a 50% for citibank cardholders on all items! wow.
i bought a pink polo tee! hoho.
DAY 02 ~ 25 NOV (SUN)
the purpose of this getaway was to celebrate Krista's upcoming birthday
so we've ordered a chocolate cake from the resort
to be delivered to our villa this morning
Krista, Rebecca, Qiuyi were out to the swimming pool in the morning,
Pei Chin & i brought the cake out to the pool,
wanting to give Krista a surprise
the wind was juz too strong to light the candle,
so we gave up in the end, haha.
Bec & Qiuyi were busy distracting Krista,
who was lying on the beach chair
lalala~ success! =)
Krista with the cake!
we then went to have the breakfast buffet
(we had 4 complimentary coupons!)
life-sized snakes & ladders!
hoho. it's big!
life-sized chess pieces!
Bec, Qiuyi & i spent a couple of hours back on the beach again
it was an even hotter day than yesterday
so burnt! oops.
who is who?
we checked out of the villa (boohoo.) at 1pm
then boarded the shuttlebus back to the ferry terminal
on the bus back, burnt!
we arrived at singapore at around 6pm
went jurong entertainment centre for dinner at mac!
i love this getaway!!!
looking forward to the NEXT one!
