Fiji trip Day 1 and 2

[ Sponsored ]

Bula! Vinaka! First two words we need to pickup for our Fiji trip πŸ™‚
Bula is “Welcome/Hello” and Vinaka is “Thank you”.

Fiji Airways make sure we get the orientation before we even touch down. Since 2016 April, Fiji Airways flies direct from Singapore To Fiji (Nadi Airport) in 10 hours.

Most people still do not know where is FIJI.
– Somewhere near Mount Fuji?
– You mean the Fiji water is from a “real” country?

Fiji is actually nearer to Auckland and Brisbane.

Fiji water and Hibiscus can be found everywhere during our Fiji trip.

Radisson Blu Resort for our first hotel. Palm trees, clear blue skies, exactly what we are expecting of carefree Fiji.

Breakfast by the sea, dinner with a view of sunset. This is how resort life should be πŸ™‚
fiji day 3

Very soon, we are used to Bula greetings, which much be shouted BULAaaaaaaa! with a big grin πŸ™‚

We can hear constant laughters coming from the caring nannies inside Radisson’s kids club.

Decent room and amenities, comfortable for families.

Denarau Marina for our offshore adventures. This marina is where all nearby islands can be reached.

Cloud 9 is literally a floating pub in the middle of nowhere. Imagine our delight when our speedboat suddenly reach the azure waters.

You can simply chill, drink or enjoy the waters. Do not expect any corals or colourful fishes, it is like a “swimming pool” out in the open sea. Cool.

Cloud 9 would be recommended for friends who want to chill, maybe not so suitable for families (lack of kids friendly activities)
Do take note snorkel gear is not available for rental.

Village Hotel Bugis, Good Food around Bugis

[ Sponsored]

Continuing from Day one review of Village Hotel Bugis Hotel, we have more good food to share.

Breakfast at 3rd Floor (Chinese cuisine) or 5th floor (International). It looks the same to us, but 5th floor does offer the pool view πŸ™‚

With so much food intake, I need to remind everyone to exercise too. Gym anyone? Kids sure know how to wayang (act) for my camera :p
day1 village Bugis10

Famous North Bridge Road Steamboat (Nam Wah Chong ε—εŽζ˜Œ). Ideal for a lazy evening, but we still prefer Whampoa’s Fishhead soup (both fish and pricing).

We will encourage you to walk in the direction of Liang Seah, which offers a lot of dining and cafe options. (Purvis is another 5 min away)

We love Ah Chew’s range of desserts. Be it warm or cold, there is always something for everyone, and the price is reasonable too. You must order the steam egg πŸ™‚

You might walk past beautiful wall-arts or decorations along Haji Lane or along Victoria Street. These arts seem to 3D jump out from the walls.

So many niche boutique shops selling non-mainstream decorations, and fashion statements.

Life like wall murals πŸ™‚
day2 village Bugis5

On another day, we took a train to Dhoby Ghaut (just 8 min away) where more shopping and food awaits.
But we are here to day to take a photo with some “Dynasty of the Sun” hotshot πŸ™‚

Have heard so much about Seorae’s Korean BBQ. The meat does not disappoint πŸ™‚

Do not leave without ordering any shaved ice (aka PatBingsoo )

I did a 8km loop around Marina Bay in the evening. Slow and easy, it was nice to finish the jog and return to the city staycation for one night.

3D2N at Village Hotel Bugis, truly satisfying staycation as we got to walk and explore the rich happening neighbourhood. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to our friends.

If we have more time, I would have love to visit the nearby Museums and Galleries.
