… Backpack to the Neighbor ..

Hubby and me (kinda) commit to take backpacking trip – at least – once in a year. Both inside and outside the country, no matter where is it as long as we could escape from the city that we lived. Last year in September, we hang out in Penang and Kuala Lumpur about 4 days. Now our plan is to hang around in Singapore from October 12 – 15.

Initially we wanted to go in September to celebrate my 28th birthday, but the plan keep changing because the airline price became so cheap in October, like half price. One person only IDR 900.000 already in return (around US 100/person).

So before we bought the ticket, we share our plan with our dearest friend, Andi Cristop and wife. They decided join us to have a double date with us in Singapore. I think it will be so much fun hanging out with them since i was the youngest and i feel secure around them.

Since i’ll be going with old people – hahahaha – they kinda lazy to find out interesting thing there, especially the fat one, Andi Cristop. He said, “I just follow where you guys want to go.” How lazy.. So i try to browse on my own, start from the cheap accommodation, interesting and unique place to take a photos, flea market (its a must) and delicious food. I’m still listing until now.. Believe me, its not gonna be short list because i’m a perfectionist. I have to trust my insting according to listing.First step is accommodation listing. 1 or 2 star hotel is the only place that we could afford. Hey, we are backpacker not a jet setter. We plan to stay in the same room or at least superior double bed. Our budget is under SGD 100/night.
