|Pondok Wisata Suzy|
Finally went on a short weekend trip! Was supposed to be for my birthday but we couldn't take any time off on weekends so we delayed it till now! Stayed at Pondok Wisata Suzy located at Trikora Kilometer 42 in Bintan. Really off the beaten path. Hahaha. Bf wanted to stay at a non-commercialized place and almost all the lodgings along this stretch are places backpackers love. So, why not!
Arranged for a driver to fetch us to and fro the place because we were unsure how to just flag a cab (and whether or not it's safe) from the jetty. But I think we were charged quite high a rate at about S$50? But then again, the driver kind of had to make 4 trips (to lodging/then home, to lodging/to jetty), so for safety/convenience, I think the price is alright.
And according to reviews, Trikora Beach has pretty amazing beaches in Bintan and it's not crowded. Actually there was nobody around. Hahaha. Our lodging was... interesting? If you don't mind roughing it out, why not! Though the ants in the bathroom was crazy scary. We think there was a nest in there. D: And there's no heater. But we bathed just before the sun set, which meant the water has been heated by the sun through the day. Smart right!

View from that resort was really nice too! Wind was very strong. The only thing was that bf didn't want to enter the water with me. We ended up chilling on the beach with our books. :)

Bf tried to get some sunset pics, but we were facing east, so nothing much. Water was very clear! But no sea activities.
Went back to the same place we went to for lunch, not before walking down the street for some time to explore the area. Dinner of chicken soup (very nice!), fried beehoon, veg, tofu hotplate and a Magnum Infinity for me! The Magnum was a choc ice cream, with caramel! Covered in choc with rice crispie bits!! Super full.
Breakfast was Maggi by the owner of the place. Surprisingly nice! I wonder if I'll ever be able to find out what brand we ate. LOL
Took the ferry and I got reminded AGAIN why I hate ferries.
I want to get out of here again again and again, with you.
