Batam Trip

Mich won a free 2D1N Batam stay at Holiday Inn from Mediacorp..
Style Wedding magazine I think..
1 of about 50 couples..

My very first trip to Batam.. Was thinking it'll be like 
Bintan with nothing much to do but just hotel and beach..
Turned out it was a lot more fun than I expected..
or it could be just that my expectations were way too low?..
Anyway.. it being free for 2D1N (though we extended) 
must have helped in the fun factor haha..

Breakfast by the Pool..

Bday Celebration

Cable ski/wakeboard..
There's go-kart too..

Cheap shopping and food..

Cheap spa and massage..

If we had more time, We would have gone for the famous seafood..
What's there not to like?

--Ginseng Tonic Maker-- We'll be back..

No more "First 3 months?"

Read in the papers recently..
With some changes in the schedule of intakes.. There will be no more "First 3 months"..
The months when a student may still change JCs or courses depending on the release of their actual "O-levels" results..

That's such a waste..
Firm friendships are formed.. When studies is not at the top of the priority list..
The skipping of lessons.. The hanging out after (or during) lessons..
The list goes on..
(Well.. come to think of it.. for some.. their "first 3 months" never ends haha..)

Glad I went through that.. And still have firm friendships that I have kept till now..
Sometimes it feels quite amazing..
As the time spent was short.. But the friendship survived although different paths were pursued eventually..

--Ginseng Tonic Maker-- But then.. There's Fun-O-Rama to serve the same purpose I'm sure..
