2D1N at Celestial Resort, Pulau Ubin!Friday, March 16, 2012
It was quite cheap as it only cost $2.50 per person for the bum boat ride! :)
A 10-minute ride from Singapore to Pulau Ubin.. The seabreeze was shiok!!!
Finally we reached!!!!!!!!:)
It's a complete different environment from the bustling Singapore city.
Welcome to the rural side of Singapore!!!!!
Anyway, there were alot of BIG HUGE stray dogs around. So if you're scared of big dogs like me.... be prepared to feel wary and frightened constantly. :/
Lucky he was there to protect me hehehe
Anyway we had to take a taxi-van to Celestial Resort, the resort in which we'll be staying! $6 for two people for a trip :) The uncle was like, "Faster faster! Later going to flood already"
And it was kinda true. When the van was passing through this particular bridge, the water level was already at the tip and it was sooooo going to flood.
Anyway, we took a van with these two kind aunties who were there to visit the local temple. Had a nice chat with them :)
The environment was pretty decent.
Quite nice for a island like Pulau Ubin.
There were alot of people waiting for available rooms as they were still cleaning out the rooms. So little staffs. There was only one person tending to all the customers at the reception counter.
Felt a little sorry for her.
Anyway, did a little trick and she gave me to go first and we took the double bed room!! :)
Here's our simple but kinda cosy room!!!!!!!!!!!
Next stop - Fish spa!!!!!!
Kids were doing it, but I was super afraid and I kept screaming -_-
The aunties were really friendly and initially dear wanted to eat crab, so they keep giving us cheaper and cheaper price for it.
From $30 to $15-_-"
I love to eat prawns.... AND HE KNOWS IT AND HE ACCOMMODATED ME :')
Sweet little things that he does always makes me super touched!
Turns out that this komodo lizard is the AUNTIES' PET!!!!!!!!!!
Hhahahaha! So cute!
The aunties were saying how well-behaved it is and it will do its own things after eating. Couldn't resist and take a picture of it!
Anyway, after eating we went to cycle back to our own resort ^_^
After resting awhile in our room, Monkey wanted to try his luck at the resort's private jetty by fishing there. Anyway, it's free of charge!!!!! Just bring your own bait and rod and if you're lucky enough, you can catch some decent fishes back and Hornbill restaurant will cook it for you for free?
Well, had a fun time exploring the beach! Didn't know they had such a rich biodiversity there :)
Some families also came down to the beach and played the fire thinggy~ Whatever it is called.
Seriously? Waited for 30 minutes and still didn't arrive..
So watched people feeding stingrays instead :/
Went back to our room to put down our stuffs, changed into swimming wear and complete the activities!!!!!!
I insisted that I wanted to go to the temple because the couple in front of us rode to the temple.
One bad decision because this stray dog kept following us and I almost teared :'(
Anyway they had this tortoise pond and these tortoise keeps thinking that our fingers are food. Kept on coming near us!
We just had to rest.. So many families that day were cycling to Chek Jawa :)
