As mentioned in my previous blog entry about my second honeymoon in Maldives, I promised to share the difference between All Inclusive, Full Board and Half Board packages in Maldives.

When we were researching about where to stay in Maldives, we were shocked at the many different types of packages available.

Thankfully, as we were no strangers to the Club Med concept (having visited Club Med Bintan and Club Med Phuket), we were able to wrap our heads around the various packages available.

Here's #nadskai's interpretation of the very many Maldives packages available!

As mentioned in our previous Maldives entry, we had to take a seaplane to our resort. Seaplanes do not come cheap, so when planning for your Maldives holiday, do try to choose a resort that comes with transportation, ideally a ferry service.

For us, we never tried a seaplane before and we had really liked our resort (not sponsored!) and a lot of other resorts were fully booked due to the high season. We decided to splurge in the end.

Honestly, the seaplane experience isn't anything spectacular. Skip it!

This was our view once we landed. Fell in love with the resort even before reaching our rooms!

While waiting to check in, we were served with a cool refreshment. Needless to say, the beer guzzling monster hubby chose a beer.

There are many sorts of accommodation in Maldives actually. You can choose from hotels to resorts. Most honeymooners would splurge on a villa in a resort.

Cost breakdown:
Air tickets to Male via Singapore Airlines - S$1,100
Seaplane transfer - S$1,200
Watervilla - S$5,900

There are beach vilas, which are on land and water villas like the picture above. Of course, a water villa would be the more sought after choice as it's not only Instagram worthy but it's really convenient when wanting to go for a swim. All you have to do is head for a swim from your balcony.

As some of you guys may know, I visited Maldives with Skai aka c(hubby) for our second 'honeymoon', or well our anniversary trip. (Honestly, we make up all sort of excuses just to travel)

The trip was sponsored by yours truly. Meaning laoniang paid from her own pocket. No sponsors lah dey. Only Skai got a free trip. To me, when I save money, I want to splurge on the people I love.

As a couple, we feel that we should travel when we are young and able. Read my post on why we should travel for some background info. That being said, make sure you are not broke lah. Spend within your means. I'm glad I managed to check off most of the things on my list. E.g. Wedding photoshoot, Wedding dinner, Europe Honeymoon and now, my Maldives Honeymoon!  Majority of our big purchases out of the way! Last would be our BTO, but honestly, it shouldn't be a problem.

We splurged for this trip. I didn't feel the pinch and honestly, it was well spent.

Cost breakdown:
Air tickets to Male via Singapore Airlines - S$1,100
Seaplane transfer - S$1,200
Watervilla - S$5,900

We managed to get a good deal via Singapore Airlines. Good service and good food.

As some of you guys may know, I visited Maldives with Skai aka c(hubby) for our 'second' honeymoon.

It wasn't such a breeze packing for Maldives despite it being a beach destination. It was because yours truly have gained lots of weight after #nadskai1314 (the wedding). Previously I lost lots of weight piahing for the wedding. And after that, sadly... I let it go.

Errrr, totally went havoc on the diet. Gorged on carbs after going on a no/low carb diet for more than a year. Also stopped exercising after suffering from a knee injury.

ANYWAY, sorry to have digressed. Here are my some of my outfits for Maldives. Not too revealing cos all that blubber ain't attractive.

As mentioned in my previous blog post(s), the hubby and I visited a Michelin Star Restaurant in Paris, France.

Reason being, we always wanted to try a Michelin Star Restaurant (and dear Tim Ho Wan does not count!). It is also because we thought it would be nice to enjoy a fine (pun intended) meal in Paris (the city of love!) as our honeymoon meal!

While we had initially wanted to go well, budget, not too ex, the odds were definitely not in our favour.

We used the old faithful google to search for Michelin Star Restaurants where excellent keywords such as Cheapest, Affordable and Michelin Star Restaurants in Paris caught our eye.

Needless to say L'Agape soon caught our eyes with it's 35 Euros menu. We decided to make our reservations at L'Agape for the second last day of our trip: 1st May.

But like I mentioned earlier, things did not go as planned. Because, goondu us did not think nor used our numbskulls. 1st May = Labour Day = Public Holiday = No set meals = Expensive meal!

Jeng jeng jeng.
