I must admit, I was shocked to see a bright, gleaming MacDonald’s when we alighted from the ferry. I guess visiting an offshore untouched island was too much to expect!
The streets did get quieter as I ventured further inwards though, and the reward was a quiet stretch of beach and sea.
About a month back, I made the decision not to go for a fancy (read: hotel, dress up, lucky draw, performances, 10-course meal) staff dinner, making the time instead for myself.
This post is to remind myself – what a good and courageous decision that was.
Well done, you.
Where we decided to go for a short getaway over the National Day holiday 🙂
Yay for natural light, instagrammable tables and decor.
A lesser travelled part of AMK. For me, at least.
“Time is all you have. And you may find one day that you have less than you think.”
On our second (and last) morning there, we planned to wake up at 5.30AM to catch the sunrise.
So Mum’s alarm rang at 5.30AM, home time.
Which translated to 4.30AM in Bintan.
By the time I figured out why the sky was not getting any brighter by the minute, it was around 4.45AM.
Laughing, we decided to use the extra time to shower and freshen up anyway.
Good story for memories ;p
