TGIF everybardy! We are here to continue from where we left off for our previous blog post. This will sum up the rest of our Bintan getaway!

On the second day, we woke up bright and early so that we could fill our stomachs before embarking on our activities for the day!

The food was okay I guess. We tried a little bit of everything while making sure not to overeat. Haha.

P8221576

WHOOHOO! Time for a dip in the pool!

P8221575

The pool looked really inviting and you can even sit back and relax with some drinks.

P8221566

We didn’t exactly swim but just waded around and cooled off in the water.

P8221585

Walked over to the beach for our jet skiing session.

P8221587

The hubs and I went separately so that we could take photos for each other. LOL.

30 minutes of jet skiing felt like eternity! I honestly don’t know which is scarier – ATV or jet ski. When I was jet skiing, I kept imagining that I would lose control and fall into the deep sea while doing sharp turns and end up getting eaten by sharks. Paranoid much. But on the overall, it was a very fun experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again and again!

The Chewys’ Bintan Getaway Day One

P8211310

Before we head off for our long awaited trip next month, I thought I had better clear my outstanding posts on our short getaway last August! So here’s the first part of our Bintan trip! Prior to this, we took Little misschewy along to Phuket, Hong Kong and Bangkok. It is a whole different experience when you are travelling with a baby or toddler. We wanted some couple time to ourselves and my parents were more than willing to help babysit the little one over the weekend.

Filled our tummies before boarding the ferry!

P8211299

As it was a Friday, the ferry was pretty empty and we chose to sit by the window.

P8231760

The journey took about 1.5 hours, which was a little longer than estimated. Checked ourselves into Bintan Lagoon Resort for two nights!

After lounging in our room for a bit, we went for our ATV session! No tourist in sight!

P8211326

P8211311

It was our first time riding an ATV and it was suuuuuuper exciting!

P8211314

We took the one-hour session and kept swapping places lol. Our guide was nice to offer to help us take photos at various spots.

Nua-ed for a bit because riding an ATV felt like an exhausting affair! Phew!

P8211343

Walked over to the Leisure Centre to enquire about their activities.

P8211348

The hubs wanted to try archery which I wasn’t so keen on because I found it quite boring when I learned archery as a Girl Guide. Hehehe. I mean.. Just stand there and shoot arrows. What’s so interesting about it?

P8211355

It has been more than 10 years but I still remember the techniques and stance, etc.

P8211365

Even the instructor was impressed and commented that I was the best he had seen so far. We later found out that he just joined Bintan Lagoon Resorts not long ago only. LOL!

We had dinner at one of the resort’s restaurants and the food was ridiculously priced. Can’t remember how much these lamb chops cost but we were kinda stunned by the portion. Haha. Seriously 吃不饱 lor.

Apart from that, it felt great being able to do relaxing activities for a change! Stay connected with us on Facebook www.facebook.com/missuschewy and on Instagram @missuschewy :)
