Obviously everybody wishes to catch up with work on Monday, well, wait for me, wait for me... I will get on the 5pm ferry with you guys :wink:
Dear 2S (it's too easy for me to mix up your nicknames), thank you for your advice abt the proper swimming suit. Yeah, would like to take sun-bath with only necessary covers :P
And Kimi, I suppose 2S would share one room, and Eric and Fohls are perhaps perfect match too, so let's share another one no matter you arrive at 8pm or even later, can't think of anyone better....:lol:
C u guys ! It's just so great........

Hmmmmm.... I wouldn't want to be following you... might not be 'Gorillas in the Mist' but would definitely be 'Monkey in the Mist'.

And with all that said - now you know why I'm not too keen on 'whizzing' round Bintan with you guys. :lol:

I'm worn out after a long, long day but stopped in to say that now almost everyone has their tickets, yes? Note your ferry departure times and be sure to be there one hour before departure time for check in. Any later than that and you'll miss the boat, and may be in contention for Singapore most expensive taxi fare from X location to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. :wink:

And then, once we've reached Bintan.....and then, once we've settled in.....PARTY!!! 8)

I have a friend who wants to join... at least for golf... but holds a passport from Spain. Can anyone tell me cost/procedure to get a visa for a day of golf?

Grassy Ass.

Last call for Bintan! Reply by June 3rd


Right-o, folks! This is THE last call to fill the last two rooms I have on hand for this trip. One is a Queen and one is a Twin room, so technically I can accomodate max 3 more people.

If you're keen to join us, you'll need to submit your COMPLETE details as requested previously in the thread. Sorry to make you sift back through so many pages, but I simply don't have the time to list it all again for each response I have received via PM with incomplete information.

Deadline is June 3rd. After that all unoccupied rooms will be released, and you'll have to make your own arrangements from there on out.

Come on now....step lively!

Eric from the Netherlands wrote:Oh, let me post the travel agency details here, so you can use them if you feel like doing so:

New Shan Travel, www.newshan.com

Agent is Winnie Wong, tel. 62219333.

They charge a 20 sing or so extra, but to me it is worth the hassle....

See ya the 18th!
