The kind folks from Amoy Hotel invited Skai aka c(hubby) to experience a lovely Weekend Staycation with them.

Amoy Hotel is a boutique hotel located fairly near the Chinatown MRT Station.

What was cute about Amoy Hotel aside from it's heritage decor is the usage of surnames for the rooms. Skai and I hunted for our respective surnames and took pictures with it. #Cheapthrill

We enjoyed the AMOY weekend Singapore Staycation which includes the following:

This is a Thursday's Travels - Anything about previous, current and future (upcoming) travel exploits entry under my Singapore Travel Blog themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

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.
