Flew right after the big day because I can finally afford to travel since NDP is over!!! Couldn’t wait to have a getaway trip after these busy 4 months! Just wanna really chill and relax for this trip so there was no itinerary planned at all. And most of the time it was lazing around in cui mode so not many photos taken as well, except for photos of the pretty villa and beach! (:
Was damn damn damn worried that this trip wouldn’t go well due to the volcano ash clouds and all. Many flights were still being cancelled the day before! So when I arrived at the airport and realised that our flight has been delayed by 30 minutes, I was so damn scared that it will eventually be cancelled x.x
I even asked the counter staff if it’s due to the ash cloud but thankfully, she laughed and said no…hahaha! Phew~! I really didn’t wanna miss this trip because it’s somewhere I have been wanting to go!
But the worry only really ended when I finally landed, because the plane could make a U-turn anytime if the ash cloud situation is bad, which happened before! So damn relieved that everything went smooth and I had a good short nap in the flight! :D
Went to get alcohol first from their duty-free place and surprisingly, it was quite expensive -.- We later learned that the bottle we got is selling much cheaper in their supermarket! Lesson learned: DO NOT buy from their duty-free!!!
It wasn’t easy finding our driver because there were so many hotel pick-ups holding the boards and I had to scan through that big crowd to find my name! Thanks to the mighty brown eyes, we found our nice driver and had a 30-minute ride to the villa~
Was really excited for this trip because the villa was recommended by Yinning and the pictures look really nice! And it was indeed like heaven enough for me, which is why there weren’t much activities for these few days because the villa was simply damn comfy!
So most of the time was basically spent in the villa watching TV, soaking in bathtub, swimming (though only managed to do it once), going for the villa’s massage, napping and etc because it’s just way too comfy~ So much that I am starting to miss the place already! x.x
The amazing thing about the villa is that I hardly fall asleep so easily on a “foreign bed“, which means I usually take a while to fall asleep when I am overseas but it wasn’t the case here! I had pretty good sleep every night somehow! (((:
Went back for a short swim to help digest a little before going for the massage within the villa and I was pretty looking forward to it! Needed a good one but too bad I got the twin sister masseur that wasn’t as good~ It was still a relaxing 90 minutes that I even fell asleep for a while! Haha! I seldom fall asleep during massage xD
Back to the villa to nua and we decided to head out slightly earlier this time so that there’s more time to explore and to check out the beach! :D The beach is just like 15-20 minutes walk away but it was a bit hot so I was craving for ice-creammmmmmm! Hahaha! My favourite caramel biscuit flavour for Häagen-Dazs!
Okay, I must admit that when I first arrived at Bali, I was a little disappointed that it looks more like Batam than the Bali that I had imagined. Of course I love the villa and all, but I had always imagined Bali to be a more atas part of Indonesia with a bit more resemblance to Redang. In the end, the streets and traffic really reminds me of Batam and I couldn’t find that mini Hawaiian element that I had imagined~
BUT! Not till I finally visited the beach! :D The Petitenget beach in comparison with Batam is really 一个天一个地 and I finally see the part of Bali that I have imagined! Hehe!
And love having the water washing over my feet (:
There’s a minimum spending of S$50 for each table but that’s still not too ridiculous. Although the drinks are slightly more expensive than other places, it’s still cheaper than Singapore! So it only took like 3 drinks + some food to hit the amount~
It was supposed to be a get-drunk night but the Potato Head session got us too full to do so! Hahaha! It would end up as more of a puking night~
Back to room to nua again before heading for another 90-minute massage! Felt like a millionaire there so we were quite generous with the massage…hahaha! Mine was in fact 150 minutes because there was this “Buy 2 Get 1 Free” promotion going on so I decided to do 2 in a day!
Took the package for neck, shoulders and back because those are the areas that I needed more focus on, but in the end it turned out more like a 90-minute stroking cum nail-scratching session -_- Thankfully the second 60-minute massage was really good!!!
Was having this sudden craving for chocolate lava cake and although I know it’s quite impossible to find it in Bali, I am still happy for the effort in trying to satisfying my craving…hehe! Found something close, but still can’t satisfy 100% of my craving xD
Back to the villa again to enjoy the very last night with in-house cocktails promotion! Each glass is already like half the price of Singapore and yet they are having Buy 2 Get 1 Free promotion as well which makes it even cheaper! And not to mention, although the price is half or even 1/3 of SG, the amount of alcohol is double! Gonna miss these dirt cheap cocktails x.x
It was indeed a nice getaway after these busy months and although it wasn’t a perfect one, I am really happy to have this trip. After all, it’s a very belated birthday wish come true ((:
I will be back, Bali!
