Pier at Montigo Resort

Here are some pics from my recent getaway trip to Batam, Indonesia. I was in desperate need of a getaway trip after the first semester of poly which was literally driving me insane to the point that I was looking flight ticket prices during my exam study period, which is not the best thing to do haha.

So my mum surprised us with the beautiful weekend getaway trip with my family. We stayed at the Montigo Resorts in Nongas, Batam, Indonesia. We went there for 3 Days and 2 Nights and stayed in a enormous villa which had 4 levels including the terrace. Which had a breathtaking view of the sea.

On the first day, we went to town to do a bit of shopping and I decided to get a few local snacks that I have never seen before to try some out during out stay.

We opted for their breakfast buffet . Mainly cause breakfast is literally my favourite meal of the day and who doesn’t love a good breakfast to start the day off!

On the last nigh in batam, we headed to the beach club house for dinner. The resort was not particularly know for its great food options but I feel that the food at club house was actually pretty good.

What’s in my Bag!

I was clearing out my bag the other day and thought I would share with you guys what’s usually in my bag. I’m currently studying in poly and I’m really thankful that for the course that I’m taking I don’t really have to carry any book and most of my school work is done on my trusty macbook. Thus, this is what I mostly have in my everyday bag, even if I’m in school or not.

  • My wallet (Mango)
  • Sunglasses
  • Portable charger (Xiaomi)
  • iPhone cable
  • Tissues
  • Stationary
  • Mint
  • A bottle of Water
  • And my little black pouch ↓↓↓ (Elite)

These are the thing in my little black pouch…FullSizeRender

  • Lipstick (of the day)
  • Makeup (To touchup through the day – foundation & eyebrow gel)
  • Lipstick (always kept in my bag)
  • Lip blam
  • Hair ties
  • Bobby pins

I find that my little black pouch is really help to keep your bag really organised and makes it easier to find all those little things that always get lost in depths of your bag. It certainly makes it easier for me when I change my bag as I can just grab that pouch and not have to look for all those things!

Waterway park

I had been a long time since my friends and I had a day to ourselves where we could simply hangout together, eat, took photos and just have a great time together! So… we decided to check out the newly opened mall that Punggol, Waterway Point and explore the park near it.

We first went for lunch at the Korean BBQ place there. Sadly, they had a time limit of 1h 30min so we couldn’t really hangout there and chill. (Totally forgot to take any pics there)

After lunch we decided to head outside to take some photos…

After have a great time of taking photos, we were exhausted and needed a break from the sun and went back into the Waterway Point mall. While we walked about, did a cheeky bit of shopping we happened to walk by a place that was selling the famous bingsu. We were simply too tempted by it and sat there to get one to share! It was my first time trying bingsu and i would definitely try it again but… just at a different outlet as it isn’t one of the best place know to selling bingsu and the ice-cream part of it tasted a bit weird haha. However, they were really generous with the oreo.
