Bintan Beach Bliss

Postby seraphim » Tue, 17 May 2005 5:44 pm

Hey there :D

I've noticed that there are some mighty nice people registered on this forum. Wouldn't it be neat to meet?

Was thinking it would be swell if a bunch of us could get together for a quick getaway somewhere, seeing as so many of us have similar interests, just to sit back and shoot the breeze over a few drinks in balmy, relaxed setting. Something fairly inexpensive, not too far away, where the skies are not crowded with skyscrapers.

I figure its fairly easy to set up: Just post if you're keen, give us an idea of the weekend dates that you're free, tell us if you're bringing the kids (please!), and make us aware of any eccentric habits you might have so we can room people with minimal catfighting. Or everyone gets their own chalets...simple as that. Once we've got it all together, we'll message everyone, collect the dues, grab the tickets and away we go!

I'll start first to get the ball rolling - being the spontaneous nutter that I am, I can leave for a 2 day/1 night trip on the weekends beginning Sat 28th May (next weekend!), June 4th, June 11th, or July 2nd.

Anyone else game? :D

If I qualify, I'd be interested to come along? :lol:

Just as long as people have the freedom to do their things and maybe gather at night for dinner and drinks, or hangout together during day as well, I think this is a nice opportunity to meet and have fun.

My suggestion, Bintan, mana mana beach huts?

Date: 11 june, 18 june, 25 june, 2nd july.

Oh I found the thread Seraphim, that wasn't too tough, lol.

I am game, as long as it isn't for this coming weekend or next. June onwards, no problem!

Okay, list the dates you definitely can make it, so we can poll for the best dates to go. Currently, 11th June and July 2nd are looking good....

Some assistance

Postby seraphim » Tue, 17 May 2005 10:32 pm

Here's a link to Sapphire's thread if travelling is not your preferred option. Also, like Eric said, its a great 'pre-meet up' idea to get to know people first before you decide to travel with us: http://www.singaporeexpats.com/forum/ftopic18271.html

But if you're a gung-ho travel bug (like me!) and want to know where we're planning to go in Bintan and stuff, check out this link too:
http://www.manamana.com/index.html

This is gonna be fun - both events! :D

I could do this. I'd like to play a round of golf somewhere (Bintan Lagoon?), then spend the evening eating and drinking... maybe rent some motorcycles on Sunday for a personalized tour.

A few weeks out would be good. You let us silver haired younger guys in on such trips?

LOL!

So you're a silver haired young guy eh? :lol:

Well, silver, red, green, pink, punk or blue.....all are welcome to apply. Just remember! I'm trying to poll good dates to go, so please list what weekends are good for you.

Will keep you looped! 8)

MusicFever, I'm definitely a female, I just checked too :wink:

And I think, so is Seraphim, so don't worry, we'll take good care of you.

June 11th sounds good to me too, provided I get my visa.
