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 an 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 night in Batam, we headed to the beach club house for dinner. The resort was not particularly known for its great food options but I feel that the food at the club house was actually pretty good.

I really enjoyed myself, it was the perfect little weekend getaway with my family. I hope I can go on more such spontaneous trips and share my adventures with you!

Danish Vanilla Butter Cookies

This is one of my favourite cookie recipes and it is really easy and quick to make them. You can nicely place them in a cute tin to make a great edible gift for your family and friends.
