I like Christmas and New Year holidays. But since I’ve reached 30, I’ve started to dread it. New Year means that a few days later, I’ll be a year older! And, thanks to my support group (a.k.a. family and friends), I think I’ve finally made peace with my age. Yes, I’m now 34 and I’m no longer bothered by it.
I don’t want to be the center of attention so I tend to hide on my birthday. For this year’s birthday celebration, I went to a spa in Nirwana Gardens in Bintan, Indonesia with a friend. We stayed there for a day, went swimming, had body massage and body scrub, ate a lot, and did some crazy stuffs.
Yes, I’m the one wearing the Cancun shirt
We got this deal that included the return ferry tickets, free transport from/to the Bintan Resorts Ferry Terminal, and some pampering in the spa. However, I was so surprised that pool and towels usage were not included. So we had to pay 12SGD each! Lunch wasn’t included also but at 26SGD++, we had our fill in the buffet in one of the resort’s restaurants.
The body scrub and the massage were great! But I spent 5 minutes laughing when I had the foot spa. It tickled (a lot!) And I’ve always loved the ginger tea that they serve after the massage. Of course, my trip to Bintan wouldn’t be complete without my jumpshots:
I was so lucky that my friend is good at taking photos! I, on the other hand, always flopped when taking jump shots for her. But yes, I had a blast.
I take this opportunity to thank God, my family, my friends and everyone who became part of my life. I am so blessed!
