Am really excited 'cause we will be going on a mini honeymoon next month! :D
We were not planning on any honeymoon trips this year, and instead was aiming to go on a longer trip next year after the wedding reception. However, we received some advice from married friends--"go on a honeymoon, even if it's just a short trip while you are still on a high from the wedding. Else, you might get bogged down with daily life, and before you know it, babies will come, and you will never get to go on your honeymoon!". Also, the boy needs a break from work. On top of that, we received some ang paos (so so so grateful for this, 'cause let's be frank, every new married couple who is starting out will be tight on finances T_T), which we invested more than half of it. For the rest of the money, we decided to top up on it and pamper ourselves with a little honeymoon!
We are going to Bali! 'Cause now we can finally go after being married wtf. I am sure all of you have heard of the Bali curse right! Basically the curse is that all unmarried couples who visit Bali will end up separating. I know some of you call this bollocks, but I swear to god 9 out 10 couples whom I know who went to Bali ended up breaking up! :O Even those really steady couples who have dated 9-10 years. :/
But now we have immunity after getting married! wtf. I will wave our marriage certificate while checking in at immigrations WTF.
Anyway, I had a really good time at Bali early this year (it was my first time visiting). Was looking fondly through the photos we took....
Ayam TOO TOO hot, hahaha. This was our first meal in Bali! We had lunch before checking into our villa.
We stayed in W hotel for our first day! Before you jump to conclusions that we are very rich, let me burst your bubble by confessing that we stayed there for one night only haha. We wanted to experience the villa at least once, so the 3 of us chipped in for one night's stay! 'Cause it's really too expensive wtf. On the second day, we checked out and moved to a cheaper villa hahaha.
Giant cushions by the pool side! I love everything about W hotel in Bali. I mean, how can I possibly hate a hotel with a hot pink lobby, haha.
Tried to take some jumping shots but we just couldn't coordinate our jumps. #mybrotherisalousyphotographer
Another super failed jump shot. I looked like I was dancing dangdut or joget FML.
Dunno why I looked so serious here. I guess I really take my food very seriously wtf.
Trying to take a photo of the sunset and this stupid Jing jumped out and scare me hahaha.
We got the nicest seat in the house! And I think I was trying to wipe my phone screen with my bikini HAHA.
Emo running towards beach photo wtf.
Beach yoga hahaha.
Behind the scenes of our beach photos: We hung all our clothes on our brother HAHAHA.
The woes of being short-- I am always the first one to jump 'cause it takes a shorter time for my shorter body/ legs to be in the air WTF.
Yay, finally a successful jumping shot at the beach! Nobody needs to know that it took us 57 tries wtf.
So so beautiful! It was really such a happy magical first day in Bali. :D
Trying to remember everything Tyra Bank said about pointed toes and arched back wtf.
For dinner, we had authentic Indonesian food! We even sat in an authentic wooden pondok hehe.
I didn't know Indonesians also sit on the floor for meals! Got a bit confused between Indonesia and Japan for a minute wtf.
We ordered the "royalty feast" which is apparently what the king eats? Basically it is just super a lot of dishes, haha. I think we were served 30-over dishes!!
Outfit for the night! There is a pool in the restaurant which really adds on to the ambiance. BUT, I was worrying throughout that I would fall into it, haha.
Silk romper with cutout midriff: Topshop
Statement necklace: Bangkok
Strappy sandals: Zara
Patent lips clutch: Bangkok
Went back to the hotel, and we were seved martinis-- which we were supposed to make ourselves! Had a lot of fun pretending to be a bartender, haha.
Then at midnight, we had another agenda before bedtime....
Bubble bath in our bath tub!!
This is an extra special pastime for us because we used to stay in Awana hotel in Genting which has jacuzzi bathtubs. Back then, my favorite part of Genting Highlands is having super long bubble baths with my sisters and cousins! We were really young then, so there wouldn't be a single thread on us wtf. We will use the bubbles to make bras (haha), and chef hats, and all kinds of random things that only a kid can think of.
Pretending to be a ghost 'cause NO HANDS, MA!
Found an oar in our bathroom so.... :P
Teeny opted out of this really fun activity 'cause she wanted to sleep instead, hmmph. Not that the bathtub could fit all 3 of us also la, haha.
It was a typical FML activity though. It took us damn long to draw a warm bath that is deep enough for the both of us, as well as created enough bubbles for the bath. Then barely 10 minutes later, I accidentally kicked the plug, and all the water started disappearing HAHAHA. Then we were forced to try to plug in the water with our fingers and toes HAHAHAH. So what was supposed to be a very chilled-out pastime ended up being really physically-demanding HAHHAHAHA.
In the end, we managed to fill up the bath again though! And had a good long chat with Jing immersed in bubbles. :)
So that's all for our first day in Bali! Can you tell that I really had a very very very good time, haha.
