Celebration of Friendship!

with 40 comments

I’m finally back from my Batam trip with Buttons!
It’s my first time at Batam and although I have to admit that the resort is not really that impressive,
the staff at Harris Resort are really very friendly!

The trip was really short lived but I really enjoyed myself with Buttons. :)
We were both really busy so this short trip was perfect for us.
You guys must be wondering why did we go on this trip suddenly.
It’s actually just a short trip to celebrate our One-Year-Old Friendship!
We met almost a year ago in school and this is just a small celebration to remind us of that day again.

Here is a picture of Maliboo just before I brought her out to the dog sitter’s place.
I really love my dog sitter Esther, always so friendly and trustworthy!
She lives really near Buttons so it’s very convenient for us too. :)


Here is Buttons and I on the ferry to Batam.
You’ll probably be disappointed if you’re expecting a lot of pictures in this entry.
I’m getting a little lazy with taking pictures lately.
Probably because I’m feeling fat, don’t really feel like taking pictures also. Bad.


I took my favourite mini suitcase on this trip.
When I first saw this suitcase, I fell deep in love with it!
When I saw it in the shop, the price tag on the suitcase stated “Runaway Suitcase”!
How cute, right? :p
I love running away!

And yes I’ve got a big bruise on my thigh. :x


I went for some treatment for my face few days ago at Phillip Wain,
and I got some really precious advice on how to take good care of my face.
To my horror, I realised that I’ve really been treating my skin in a really bad way.
So for the whole of my Batam vacation, I insisted not putting on any makeup except for drawing my brows and mascara.

As a result, I really looked quite horrible throughout the trip.

Here is a picture of part of the spa room in Harris Resort.
The building where the spa is located is actually really old!
But to our surprise, the spa itself is really nicely decorated and the service staff are all very friendly.
The treatment rooms were pretty and comfortable to be in as well.
So Buttons and I were really happy with the spa treatments we’ve received.
It’s really good too because they have a lot of couple treatment rooms available. :)

Pardon my messy bed.
I only remembered to take pictures after everything was over! :p



We totally forgot about booking our return ferry tickets on the first day.
And by the time we remembered on the second day, the earlier ferry tickets were all gone!
Buttons had to miss a dinner appointment with his friend and we had to spend around 3 hours doing nothing!
But to be honest, I am kind of happy that we missed the earlier ferries.
Buttons and I had a quiet lunch and had the whole 3 hours to ourselves,
we play badminton by the pool, sat around and chit chat,
and even went for a dip in the pool even though he didn’t bring his swimming trunks!

Thank god we missed the ferry.
I love my Buttons.

    • huh my skin is bad man.
      But from what i learnt, cleansing after makeup is REALLY important!

  5. Hi there!

    That’s a very pretty suitcase.

    Where did you buy it?


    November 16, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    • FEP. I forgot that shop’s name already.
      Sells all the funky stuff. Next to the dessert shop at Level 3 or 4 I think.
      Near the back staircase.
      Is it FuncDeco or something?


      November 16, 2009 at 9:55 pm

  6. That’s a very instant reply.

    Forgot to ask about the price!


    That can fit your clothes for 3D2N or did you go for 2D1N?


    November 16, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    • Around $50 i think.
      I went 2D1N only. :)


      November 16, 2009 at 10:58 pm

  9. Hi wanted to ask about the skincare tips u mentioned but someone has asked already. anymore to share? i have over abused my skin with acne products and i am paying the deed real badly. cant step the house without applying foundation!


    November 17, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    • oh dear. me too!
      i think i’ve became too reliant on my liquid foundation.
      without it, my skin looks crappy.
      i’m really trying to live without it now.
      but the skin will look really bad for the first couple months i think.
