Here now at Nirwana Gardens

without comments

We are here now at Nirwana Gardens Bintan, Indonesia. Amazingly, I’m able to blog not because of the hotel’s internet connection but through our internet connection at home. Yes, you read it right. I’m connected somehow to our secure internet in Singapore. I don’t know how my genius husband did it but it works!

Anyway, we decided to get away from city life for the weekend. Eating out and watching movies felt like a weekend routine already and it’s the last thing we wanted to do for our 2nd wedding anniversary. I think everyone will agree that this island’s nearness (along with Batam) to Singapore is the main reason why city dwellers prefer going here over Thailand, Malaysia or even Bali.  Going here require’s less effort and that’s what you’re paying for.

It’s our first time at this resort hotel and so far we are enjoying it (except for the food but that’s another story that deserves a separate entry). Their customer service had minor hiccups at first but we forgot all about it as soon as we saw this amazing and relaxing view.

Forget their lobby. All you need is this view and unlimited sweet and salty fresh air.

After the stressful process of checking-in we were greeted by this lovely living room. Check out the rattan carpet and reading chair.

And then we saw our bedroom. So ROMANTIC!

The TV can be rotated. Hence, you can either watch from your bedroom or  living room. Nice idea eh?

The bathroom was clean and so spacious. Toilet and shower room were separated. I also love the sliding door.

His and her sink plus huge mirror!

Can i stay here for a week? For free?

One Lazy Sunday

without comments

We went biking. It’s one of the things i would rather do than going to the mall to spend my weekend.

including ‘Uncle’ who walked back and forth along the shoreline for about an hour.

We discovered a new place to hang out.

They serve enormous size of steak. It wasn’t that good but not that bad.

I love lazy Sundays specially when we get to spend our OWN quality time together.
