I'm a beach + Sea + Nature Lover; yearning for tranquility with a tinkle of entertainment to spice up life a little. I've ALWAYS hope that I'll be born & live next to the sea even if I'm exposing myself highly dangerously to Tsunamis. If I own a plot of land there, there'll be so much I will do to make it a secret garden-style paradise for my family, friends and I.
Imagine an island all to yourself with 14 other of your BFFs & family members--Wohoooooooo!!! Seriously, anyone would want to have a getaway like this repeatedly & escape urbanization for awhile.
More than 3 years back, I went to Bintan with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. We booked an entire villa all to ourselves, about 12 of us in total. The Villa, facing the sea, was really empty(just us) with our own private pool, BBQ pit and buggies to drive around for our own convenience!
That was my god-like kind of getaway I will never forget all my life. I'm not really a fan of shopping, looking at sky-scrapers, crossing traffic lights & junctions.
*Oh God, please let this kind of dream holiday happen again*

Warm yourself up with a tan by the seaside for a start. Enjoy the sea view, read a book, fall asleep in the sun. Do whatever it is except to think of work back at home.
If that gets too bored for you, challenge your friend, climb coconut trees.
Arm yourselves, load & get your water pistols ready!
Divide yourselves into groups & try to wet the opponent's flag.
I played this game with my younger sister, cousin & friends at Sentosa once. This is not child's play. You need a substantial amount of stamina to keep running and hiding.
How about winners winning yourself to unlimited ice-cream & ice freeze while the losers try quench your thirst with HOT Teh Tariks IN THE BATHING SUN!
End your first night with a warm Jacuzzi soak & aromatic massage.
Good Morning! as you embrace yourself in the picturesque view of the sunrise. Enjoy your breakfast in bed as you indulge in the morning sea breeze.
Gear up yourself to go on an expedition within the island. The fauna & flora are ready for hide-and-seek. Immerse yourself in mother nature; experience to the calls of the cicadas & migrating birds.
Head down to the beach for a sumptuous picnic. If your BFF decides to splash-attack you, Do it back! You can afford the time anyway. :p
Take a rest for the rest of the afternoons- Get a tan or play some cards, ride on chopper maybe?- then get ready for beach Volleyball!
Keep your other friends who are not playing involved. They can be your referees & score-keepers you know. :)
Haven't had enough? Head back to the pool for a round of captain ball polo!
Pamper yourself with a 6-course fine-dining dinner. Create your very own classy ambiance- jazz music playing in the background, candle-lights. Go on and splurge-- just for once. You deserve it.
Get the band to play something you all know & karaoke all you want!
Still feeling really full after dinner? How about a game of para para in your very own game room? Sounds pretty fun with King Of Fighters & Guitar Heroes too.
Tiger Beer + Food + Friends = Football
Round your friends up in the living room & catch a game of football together! You can shout & yell like nobody's business.
No one can hear you anyway.
Just to make sure you're really tan enough before heading back home. Go for a final round of tanning & swim.
Come on,you can sleep on your way back and catch a good sleep when you're home. Don't waste that 3D2N!
Bubble's all ready, let's pack and go Nikoi Island!
