Honeymoon #1 + Post Wedding Photoshoot

Let me take a moment to brush all the cobwebs that have gathered here for the lack of updates. Juggling the roles of being a new wife and handling a new career has not been easy, but I survived the first five months yeah! So on to our short 4D3N getaway to Bali. We planned Honeymoon #1 immediately after our wedding because:

(1) H’s exams were on the following weekend (boo!) hence the quick break in order to give him ample time to revise.

(2) Why not go immediately after the wedding in order to save on a staycation hotel and spend our first night in Bali 😉

(3) We had some credit with HNHM Photoworks after having to cancel their services (more here) and thought it’d be fun to have a post wedding shoot somewhere different!

We stayed at The Kunja Villa in Seminyak, which was both of our most luxurious experience ever. We were picked up by a humble driver decked in full Balinese get up, even though it was almost midnight, and didn’t have to step off the car for check in when we arrived. He led us straight to our temporary home where he settled some papers with the husband while I gawked at our enormous pool villa . Our breakfasts (all halal requested ahead of time) were prepared in front of us in the villa every morning, while afternoon tea is left by little elves who make their presence unknown as much as possible. Our first two nights in Bali were spent getting to know each other as spouses awwww hehe.

On the third day, we hired a driver from Driver Muslim Bali for approximately $50 sgd for 12 hours (including fuel and driver) and met our favourite photographer duo, Hani & Hazra for a full day photo shoot at Ubud & Uluwatu. We brought with us our evening wedding wear and also a traditional baju kebaya for myself just for the Balinese photo feel. And I have nothing but LOVE for the product!!
