M O N T I G O love


Hello! Here's my first entry of the year! 
Time flies isn't it? We are already into the second week of 2013. 

So anyway, I spent my last day of 2012 in Batam, a place I never thought I will ever be visiting. 
But Charlene who highly recommended Montigo Resort proved us all wrong. 
Thank you Mx and Lu for making it possible by helping to book the ferry tickets and resort!
 Took the earliest ferry at 1030am and arrived at Batam 45mins later!

 All energized and ready! 


 And we arrived at beautiful Montigo! 

 Totally not what I imagined Batam to be like! 

 And because the check-in time was 3pm.. 

 We headed to the city for lunch at A&W and for some massage

 Finally able to check into our resort but it started pouring

 Spacious living area

The main bedroom

 And another bedroom! 

 Huge...

Not forgetting the rooftop balcony!

Then it was dinner time! 
Times have changed, we are all so fortunate to these guys cooking for the whole lot of us. 


While the rest of us...
Sit and wait! Hah

Oh yes Montigo provided Xbox as well, how thoughtful!

 And throughout the night, we could see all the fireworks set by Malaysia and Sgp from our resort!

 Here's our very own version of fireworks the boys set! Beautiful! 

The next morning, we made an extra effort to wake up early despite the whole night of booze and games.
Breathtaking


 I could stay here forever..
 Remember to choose the resort with hill top view, thou it's slightly more expensive than the rest. 
It's definitely worth it! 


 Sean the sleepy head who refused to wake up for the infinity pool!

For keepsake

 With the loveliest bunch of girls! 

 Me wearing Twirln' Midi Skirt launching tomorrow at 8pm :) 
Am already missing everything about Montigo, need a getaway again soon! 



If you haven't been following me on instagram, check out my new set of nails done by Trina! 
It's my 4th time visiting Simplicity Nails and I must say she has definitely improved so much in terms of speed and skills. 


Am so loving my pastel nails! 

So if you wanna have pretty nails like mine, do hope over to Simplicity Nails or her Facebook page and check out the available slots left for the month and Feb. 
Remember to make appointment fast to avoid disappointment! 


Till then..

    Can I ask since you guys have more than 5 people, were you required to pay $100 per pax additional?
