Yesss we call it a surprise holiday as we have never planned it before. So in brief, suddenly the training which I have applied back in October is confirmed. The training dated 28-29 Dec, and we decided to go before the training. Too bad our boys don't have passport yet, so again it's going to be a holiday for me and rene. Another part of our Jalan Hemat ke Singapura version:p
Rene booked mandala air saturday Dec 25, a 6 am flight. And I book the same flight. But as Rene will return to jakarta on monday due to leave constraint, I asked the travel agent to find me the return flight for Dec 29, the night right after my training ends. They said that an SQ flight cost IDR 4 million!! Whattt? The price does not make sense. Though it will be my company expense, I said to the travel agent to find me another flight which is much cheaper. It ended up with value air:p
Another challenge is to book the budget hotel just two weeks before the d day. Most of them are full. Till I found Rucksack Inn. From the reviews, it's very recommended. So I email to Rucksack Inn 1 & 2 (they have two branches) and our luck that we still have a double room with common bath for SGD 75 per night. We'll have a bunk bed, but it's ok. While for the other two nights that will be paid by my company, I'll be staying at Park Regis hotel.
We'll share the review of both of the hotel as well as our singapore trip this time. Meanwhile kindly follow our twitter account which is @tesyasblog to read the live report. Enjoy...
