I visited Batam for a short 2 Days, 1 Night trip during the Easter weekend. I had borrowed a Panasonic GF2 and took some pictures during the trip using the special effects. methinks it's very nifty! No need to photoshop. hurhur. Ching Chong Boy had puchased a groupon offer which included a half day tour. Not too bad. We made friends with some of the people in the group and had a ball of a time. 🙂
It was hard waking up for breakfast. Both of us did think of skipping breakfast and sleeping in. After all, we did crawl back "home" at 5am in the morning.
However, I managed to summon some willpower and FORCED myself to wake up. And yes, I had to kick the birthday boy out of bed to get up.
The package we took had breakfast included.

Needless to say, the boy and i chose the omelette!
It's really yummy! Go for the omelette!
Ching chong boy and I really enjoyed breakfast there! We'll definitely head back soon! (this is NOT an advertorial. I paid for the whole hotel stay. Am raving about Wanderlust and Cocotte because I really enjoy the staycation there.)
After the great breakfast, we soon packed up and checked out. But this isn't the end of the celebration for him... next post! The buffet dinner...
I had originally told the bf that we were going to stay over at my place as my parents were not in Singapore. That was the only way to get him to pack his barangs barangs over without being suspicious!
I had told him I would be going to AMK to collect some spree items and that I will fetch him at his place and we would head to my place.
Got a cab and fetched him. I had conspired with the taxi driver earlier and told him to not mention the venue or say anything till the bf has worn the headphones and blindfolds. hurhur.
Pardon the makeupless face.
You know what?! The boy knew we weren't headed to my place because he could feel the taxi turning a different direction than how it would have gone if it were heading to my place.
Soon we arrived at Dickson Road. As ching chong boy have never heard of Wanderlust Hotel before, he thought we were there for either food. He gave me a suspicious look as there was a Hotel81 opposite Wanderlust.
Later when I told him we were going to Wanderlust for a staycation, he was so shocked. Heh. Yay. Success!
