Is all depend on the weather

Hahaha the above picture is just a joke to start this page. I got the pic in an email and found it very amusing, therefore put it in.

It is monsoon season when we make our trip to Bintan, Mayang Sari Resort. I have pray day and night a week before the trip in hope that the weather is good and no rain when we are there for a relax holiday.

And sure enough my prayer works, we reached there to discover a clear blue sky, strong wind blowing and also a very sunny day. This is just what we need to start off a good relax holiday. And the next day, the weather is still fine till the late afternoon when the sky started to get cloudy and dark. But who care, we already get our fair share of sun and our skin are already burning red and on that very night, it started to rain heavily. The rain didnt stop and continue through the next day, which we are getting ready to checkout. Arent we lucky, it seems that the sky is doing us a very big favour, thanks god for hearing my prayer. :P

Spa Retreat

Asmara Spa is located beside Mayang Sari Resort. We went to Bintan thinking that the weather may not be in our favour, therefore as a backup plan, we signed up the spa package. And who know, the spa is heaven, it is so relaxing and we love this place immediately. We found ourself walking back to this place everyday during our 3 days 2 night stay. Gosh till now i still miss this place.
