Post Wedding Trip - Bali P1

A short vacation to Bali straight after our wedding, not a honeymoon trip! This was more of a rest & recharge trip after the hectic planning of wedding and house renovation. We chose Bali as our destination as it seemed "right" to return to the island as Mr & Mrs, given that Leecher proposed to me on this island :)

Unlike all other trips, we took separate airlines on our 1st trip out as Mr & Mrs, lol! Leecher had the luxury of traveling SQ (courtesy of my miles) while I had to purchase my own tickets and travel Air Asia. Yes, I am being bullied even before marriage already! As it turned out that some of my KrisFlyer miles will be expiring soon & at the time of conversion, I only had enough miles to redeem a round-trip ticket. So I asked Leecher if he is alright if we travel on separate airlines, as it was only a 2.5 hours journey. Leecher said that's fine ...... if he gets to travel on SQ >.<

On the cab to the airport - the best part about staying in Punggol? We're closer to the airport & I can afford to sleep in longer whenever I'm traveling for business trip, heehee!

Leecher checking in our luggages @ T2.

Done with his check-in, we took the sky train to T1.

Late lunch/early dinner @ Ruyi, which is the 1st fast-food Chinese restaurant to be introduced in Singapore.

We parted ways after dinner, as Leecher had to go back to T2 to board his flight. Since we are taking 2 different flights, we agreed to meet up at the luggage collection point. I had to board my flight first, as I'm on the earlier flight.

Leecher enjoying his inflight entertainment & meals onboard SQ, while I caught the sleeping bug onboard Air Asia.

It was almost 7pm when we landed in Bali - hopped onto the airport transfer and our driver brought us to the villa.

Snails roaming the garden when we checked into the villa.

Our tired faces & we were so hungry that we had to call for their room service!

Refreshing welcome drink to quench the thirst - think it was watermelon juice.

We checked out the rest of the villa while waiting for our dinner. We booked the Temple Villa, which comes with private garden, a plunge pool with sea view. The living room is spacious, with a day bed & a wide variety of DVDs for viewing.

The bedroom & bathroom were so huge! One bad point - there are no racks on the standing shower area to put your toiletries. You have to put them on the floor, not very convenient.

Our dinner, nasi goreng and mee goreng. We were so hungry that we polished them off within minutes.

Ended the meal with fanta & bintang *blurp*
