140227 Day 1 Arrival

time to blog about my 00's trip earlier this year! he flew over specially for my sis' wedding. picked him up really super early (first bus over in fact) in the morning. we then checked into one of the airbnb areas we booked at dakota.

it's big enough for 2 with a private shower (but it wasn't working zzz). the beds weren't that clean, but it's still livable. pretty value for money at only 39/night! better than most hotels in fact. there's a kitchen just outside also since it's a shared house, but used for rental. so most of the people there are all foreigners.

we went to bugis area next and walked along the arab street. saw a cafe that was lining with people and we couldn't help but join in for lunch. the velvet cake was not too bad, but we were pretty full and couldn't finish it. even if we only had a shared pasta. tequila sunrise is nice. i'm surprised they serve alcohol as the waiters were mostly malays. it's pretty value for money here btw!

we walked around and eventually ended up doing a couple spa. haha. the day was hot so it was good that we did it. but honestly, if you want a massage, the one at batam is so much cheaper. i think we spent like $99+ /couple. and it was just massage anyway.

since we walked so much, we eventually tire out and went back to rest early. haha. i think we went back around 6-7 plus thinking to get out for dinner after a nap, but we slept all the way till morning in the end. we woke up really early that day you see... hahahah!
