BINTAN: HARI SATU // SEKOLAH




Pre-trip

#nowplaying Bring it all back to u - S CLUB 7



So i spent almost 2h packin' all my stuff
(& spent less than half an hour unpacking when i reached home wtf)



ERRR i brought cleo along so i can read and put on my mask at th same time. lol enjoy life duh
in case you're wondering why i brought my organizer along (the leopard preened book), it's cos i wanted to record our programmes on that day (yknow like secretary kinda stuff)
but i realized it's stupid SO it rotted in my luggage for 3 days hahhaha feels retarded nao

yes i brought a 4-wheels luggage when i'm only going for 3D2N LOL.
T commented that i looked like i'm going for 30 days instead 3.
but oh wells, it's more convenient - SWEAR.:D
made my life sooo much easier

13/04/2012 (FRIDAY)

Breakfast @ J.CUBE
(crap, my virgin visit when it's opened for like, 3 weeks alr.)
Cabbed to Tanan Merah Ferry terminal cos MRT sucks!!! 
tons and loads of people that it seemed impossible for us to board. TSK.

PS. I frigging thought there's only ONE ferry terminal @ Harbourfront -.-





BOARDING PASS. 
cool right!!?? 've always thought it's only a piece of paper like usual
that's what happened when i seldom travel:( le sigh





How come soooo many people are going Bintan? lol
yah, you must be thinkin' if i can go Bintan, why not others?
OKAY LOH.



XOXO







Took a 45 mins before reachin' Bintan.
Thank god there wasn't any seasick cos i practically slept throughout the journey 
and all those photos above were taken before the ferry started movin' off LOL

FIRST STOP: SEAFOOD LUNCH @ PASAR OLEH OLEH 
one of the most famous place there~
PS. I kinda love the name - OLEH OLEH OLEH OLEH (yknow like that song hahaha XD)







Lunch @ Balimoon
(uhm... why not BINTANmoon?)







This is like... SPICY & BAGUS. 



Hero serving us. :))







Looks & tasted good!! (:



















7 dishes for $20/pax (set menu)
Oh btw, if you're going to Bintan, pls have lots of SGD with u cos majority of the shops/restaurants there accept SGD as payment -.- frigging exchanged lots of Rupiah (makin' me a millionaire) but not accepted ZZZ



Ahhh i <3 this ice lemon tea! pretty hor (i mean like appearance :D)
looks like those which you can sit at the beach and chillax kinda drink hahahah





Went for "tattoo" next!! (actually only henna yahhhhh)













YY gettin' her flowery henna :) it's so frigging chio on her! 
[check out end product below :)]







50% DONE! :)















END PRODUCT OF YY'S FLOWER! 
NICE RIGHT!!!???? 
$6.00 for that pretty masterpiece :)









Abang is like soo nice to put up with my indecisiveness
apparently i couldn't decide on the design and when i did, he said it isn't nice -__-
so he chose one for me and i went along with it, w/o knowin' wtf is that 
or should i say, i can't make out what it was



END PRODUCT! Some sort of flower, i supposed
PS. it's still nice and purple-ish up till today ^^
gotta praise his workmanship!!
:D





Did a butterfly on my leg too! 
again, he chose the design for me (:



SAY IT'S NICE HEHEHEHE















Brave hero getting his done on his chest! 

So we were ALL done by 2+ (finally)
proceeded to check in @ Mayang Sari, our beach resort! 





Happily checking in till...



WE REALIZED IT'S THE WRONG RESORT -___-
we were brought to Nirwana instead of Mayang Sari
the driver deserved to be shot when i repeated for IDK-HOW-MANY-TIMES that it's MAYANG SARI 
(okay lah, not so serious cos the hotel staff was soooo kind to send us back on buggy!!)









Stopped by this animal place while otw to mayang sari

THIS COBRA WAS OH-SO-BIG and I MEANT HUGE
(picture doesn't do it justice btw)







Crocodile!!



FINALLLLLYYYY YO
PS. i always pronouced as Mari Sayang instead of mayang sari lol
cos like sayang is like "love" in malay so yah, always got it mixed up tsk hahaha 



busy checking in while i'm snapping away! 





OUR RESORT~



Just look at the view! How to not love!!?? 
just stepped out of the room & you can see this beautiful place. :D
so nice to see this every morning when you wake up 
oh oh oh ~ wakes me up when September ends









This is how the interior of the room looked like
nothing much fanciful & i kinda dislike the material of the floor -.- makes me feel like th entire room is dirty! the bathroom's worst!! tsk :/





Extra beds!







Above two pics are how my henna looks like after washin' off the excess blackie stuff
i love my leg's butterfly VERY MUCH! looks sooo real
mom praised the butterfly & she ASKED ME TO GET A REAL ONE IN THAT DESIGN OMG
pls be shocked cos apparently, she's always against piercings, tattoos all that stuff
so she went like "if you can tahan the pain, go ahead"
SHOULD I???? :D



Room keys! We had sea horse 3 & 4, side by side
don't ask me why the room's name is Seahorse, go ask mayang sari's boss :)















So we started unpacking and slacked at the beach till dinnertime! 







Oh this was the buggy which Nirwana's staff sent us back in! 







OUR NEW TRANSPORT~ 
this sorta maxi cab in SG



SHIOK RIGHT
imagine every morning, there's a car to drive you around and send you back at night
THIS. IS. LIFE. :)
no need to fret about th dumbass buses, stupid trains which break down every now & then

not only the car's nice, the tour guide's more-than-just-nice. (=
it's 没话说 (maybe a lil exaggerating but yeah.)
not being sarcastic okay!!! 
He rly acceded to majority of our requests & made us feel like queens & kings for 3D!
i'm not kidding! PERIOD. 
i know it's his job but not EVERYONE can do it, smiling when we were late for 30mins (wtf),
laughing at our stupid jokes in the cars, opening the doors for us etc etc
i can't imagine if we met a horrible tour guide ):
(shall post his pic when W uploads them! *hopefully not next yr lol*) 
-this part in pinky cos it's compliment HAHAHAH wth-


so he drove us to this kelung for dinner and otw there, we saw SUNSET!
stopped by to take pics :)







SEAFOOD OH FRESH SEAFOOD













This kinda view calms people down. like soothing kinda thing?
imo lol. v relaxing 












basically, we had coconut drink every meal haha XD
it's like only 2 bucks and so sweet! only that the meat isn't a lot 
:'(















ALL WERE FRESH & NICE =D
all these remind me of times @ Batam. 
affordable & yummy seafood 
but weird thing was, there wasn't a lot of customers so i wonder how they survive?
it's like only 2-3 tables during dinnertime thou i know their "targets" are tourists like us -.-





Main photographer of the trip. HAHA YY (:







LOOK @ OUR FEAST. Feelin' hungry as i'm typing away tsk :\
approx 20 bucks / pax 



not a fan of black pepper crab but i gotta say, it tasted not bad. (:







*photographer at work. :D*

So after dinner, we headed back to the resort & went to chill at the beach! 
it was sucha dramatic night w/o pictures HAHAH
just wanna say (generally), taking care of drunkards IS NEVER an easy task.
but it's pretty fun at the same time because it's just humorous to see what they can be up to. HAHA
ok shan't be sooo mean, and yezzzz, i wasn't drunk hence i'm typing all these ;) 

(Side track: tryna upload all th photos on FB but it just doesn't work, wtf is the problem ugh -.-)

As you can see, day 1 was nothing much & we headed to bed at 3+! 
it's just sooo nice & relaxing to chat w friends in the wee hours :)) 
rly treasure times like this cos you can seldom to it in SG, when everyone's just so busy with their lives. 

STAYED TUNED FOR DAY TWO!!! 
MUCH MORE EXCITING WITH ACTIVITIES LIKE SNORKELING & LASER QUEST ETC! :D

*****

first day of school aka year 2 started right after i'm back from Bintan!
to be frank, i'm having post-trip withdrawal syndrome and kinda PMS too. )':

1st week of school is comin' to an end!! Thank god for that. :) 


So glad S&D is back! their sandwiches and rice bowls are mad love! 


Did some signing activity for MPR!
Very glad that Mrs J is the lecturer/tutor for this module
i reckon it's gonna get interesting! :D
she just gives me a motherly feel!



This is funny HAHAHA XD
ok better not say anything more before S kills me
yezz this belongs to her & th color combination is just... YEAH YKNOW IKNOW HAHAHA


taken during SPA! This joker i-thought-he's-good-looking lecturer passed this yellow thing around. 
from korea, as said by him. but S & I thought it can be bought @ Daiso. HEHE
it's this thing to scrub people's back to erm... remove dead skin? i think so. lol.

speaking of SPA lecturer. his typing is like so "good looking" on MeL
yknow like sometimes you're gonna meet a stranger & you judge his appearance based on his typing kinda thing. (ok, maybe it's only me who do that..) 
SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT UGH. (not to mention, girlfriends all laughed at that -___-)
ok, shan't remind myself of that but i miss Dr Eddie Ong. )))):


First week of school: usual scene
buyin' of notes/textbooks 
can't believe my spa textbook costed 40 bucks, for one semester only wtf

Toast box for lunch with E!
love the lightings in toast box lol! 
it's like so pretty and the white colours make me feel like a princess
'cept for the noise and crowd -__-
PS. WHEN IS STAR$ COMIN' TO NP?
(then all my $$$ will become starbucks' receipts)









FINALLY BOOKED MY TP!
gonna wait 2 months for it and hopefully can clear at one shot! *fingers crossed*


Virgin visit at poolside canteen! 


No surprise that it's crowded!
no matter how many canteens NP open, everywhere will still be crowded during lunch hours
can't forget how i came out for lunch during lectures (in mbio) and makan place was SO EMPTY.
and i went back to class after eating haha. no more this kinda shit thou! ;))

le sigh why oh why
