Forgive me k, cause I'm now back updating this pretty long entry for you all! So yes, I went over to Bintan for a short getaway with Amelia last month cause we both wanted a short break. She wanted a break from her work and for me, is before I go back for my annual ICT which I pretty dread initially.
But since the ICT is over, I should't talk more about it (though it's not that bad as I thought lol). So back to the trip, the planning phase was a breeze cause since it's Bintan I don't think there's anything much to plan also right hahaha! Plus Amelia settle most of the stuff for the trip! And here we goo!!!!!
Called a cab to Tanah Merah ferry terminal super early in the morning!
Can somebody tell me why is it as Tanah Merah ferry terminal and not the Harbourfront one? Cause Tanah Merah ferry terminal IS SO SO FREAKING FAR AWAY FOR ME!!! HELLO!!! -__-
Cause the other time I went to Batam right, it was over at Harbourfront! So I asked Amelia and she told me that the ferry to Bintan is usually over at Tanah Merah instead! Don't know she anyhow say one or what! But it's really far, if I remember correctly, my cab fare cost about $40+ that morning!
A blur camwhore shot of me in the cab!
Another one which looks like those paparazzi 偷拍 me one! Lol!
And then after reaching the ferry terminal.....
We had breakfast before boarding the ferry cause we both were super hungry!
This Amelia forever smiling to herself (as usual) while using her phone!
The boarding pass!!
While waiting for the ferry!
And we reached Bintan!!!!!!!!!
A quick camwhore over at their ferry terminal!
And then we are on our way to do our full body massage!
Oh! We are over at Tanjung Pinang if you guys are wondering!
The massage parlour!
The bed where I'll be doing the massage!
You know I don't even dare to put my face down on the towel because I realise the towel has like some spots on it which I think it's permanently stained! So I think it's not dirty, but just stained! Yet even so.... I didn't dare to lie down on it with my face cause I scared later my face will have pimples lol!
So can you imagine throughout the whole 1 hour of massage, my head is so unrelaxed wtf.
Cause about 45 mins of the massage is on my back, and that's when my face have to be placed on the towel! And the masseuse is pretty funny cause she keep telling me I look very handsome and keep smiling at me throughout the whole massage which makes me feel pretty uneasy lol! Plus on top of that, she keep non stop asking me questions like, whether do I have girlfriend etc. for the 1 whole hour! Zzzzz...
So in the end I think I never really had a relaxing massage, more like an interview session -__-!
Done with the massage!!!!!!
With Amelia while waiting for them to fetch us to have our lunch!
And here we are over at their local food stalls for lunch!
Mine! Bbq ayam penyet! Very yummy but the portion is so small!
Nah! A random picture of the toilet there for you! Hahaha!
There's no flush over at all their toilets one, even those in their shopping mall!
I find it very hard to use the pail of water to flush down especially if we shit (omg see! we Singaporean kids are so lucky, so stop complaining already). And you might ask, why would I know? Cause I actually did shit over at their shopping mall the second day! HAHAHAHA! Okay lah, too much information!
Then after we're done with our lunch, we went to check in to our hotel.......
Our hotel room!!
Anyway the hotel that we are staying is not near any beach or sort, cause we didn't really wanted a beach resort or even to go to beach! Many of my friends kept asking me why we go Bintan but never go beach at all! Cause usually that's what people go there for, but we just didn't really want to go cannot is it!
But the hotel service is really awesome and the room is so clean and new!!!
Before going to the pool!!!
Another one on our bed!
And off we go to the pool!
Gotten our seats and she's posing with the drinks & snacks menu lol!
And here I go into the pool!!!!!! :D
Love my hair and the colours of this picture! Oh how I miss my hair!
With Amelia in the pool! Love this picture!
The staff there is super nice, he volunteer to help us take the picture even without us asking at all!
After taking some pictures, she told me she's gonna seriously start swimming!
So I said okay, she shall go swim and I shall carry on continue to....
Take pictures!!! Hahaha! And here's me camwhoring in the pool! :D
And you all see my teeth it's getting so straight now wtf.
Another one!!! I love all these pictures!!!!
Evidence of Amelia really swimming! No joke!
After that, we came up from the pool to chill and ordered drinks!
Here's a nice candid shot Amelia took for me, but I realise there's people at the back!
So I asked her to retake it again for me.......
Ahhh so much better! Hahahaha!
Our drinks! I'm having carrot juice, and her's watermelon!
And here you have, the chioest pic of the day for her in bikini!!
Random picture of my shades.
Then it's dinner time!!!!!!!
Mine! Fish & chips!
And she's having curry chicken!
And that's all for day 1 as we fell asleep at around 8pm cause we were so tired!!!!
Second day morning! Going for breakfast with Amelia's hairband!
The spread was just okay, not very fantastic....
Then after breakfast, we changed and prepare to go for shopping!!!!!!!!!!!!
Finally a first proper picture of me without shades for this entry lol!!
In the car otw to Ramayana Mall for shopping!!!
And here's how Ramayana Mall looks like inside!
I think it's something a departmental store like Metro, Robinsons or sort in their country?
And the stuff they sell are pretty much like Song & Song or pasar malam kind of stuff but if you dig and walk around, you sure can find nice stuff to buy one!!! And furthermore, the stuff are really cheap there! The average cost of a tee shirt that I bought there (nice one lah) cost less than 4-5 bucks only!
Can you believe there's one whole section where it's BUY 1 GET 2 FREE? WTF.
So I gotten 3 tee shirts from the section, and each one only cost $1+!!! Too ridiculous!!!!!
But Amelia say for the ladies stuff, there isn't anything much to buy though! Oh! We also went over to their supermarket where we bought quite a number of stuff there too! I'll show you guys later what I bought!
Taking a break from shopping, having our lunch at this fast food restaurant in their mall!
And we are done with shopping!!!!! On our way back to the hotel!!!!
My dinner for the night!
And now, the stuff that I bought over at Ramayana Mall:
Okay, I'm lazy to fold everything up nicely to take picture but I bought around 12-14 tops!
Bought some indo mee back and super huge tin of butter cookies for mummy!
Oh and the 2 small packets in front are seasoning for fries!
Bought like 10 gatsby wax cause it's so freaking cheap, each cost less than $2 only!
You tell me how can I not buy right???!!! I'm regretting now, cause I should have bought more!!!!
Cute Disney tumbler I bought back for my cousins!
Ending of with this Tom Yum soup we had before going back to Singapore on the 3rd day!
For those who want to know, I only spend like about $370 for the whole trip and it's more than enough!!!!
The ferry + hotel + massage + local lunch cost around $170 (I think it's $160++ but I just round it up), and I only change $200 SGD to Rupiah for the whole trip which cover all the expenses of shopping, transport (having the car to fetch us to and back from the malls) and dining, which is even more than enough!
Okay, that's all! I'll blog more entries soon yeah! So many stuff to update!! Bye!!! :D
