Maldives memories – yummy yummy..

leave a comment »

For those going to maldives for honeymoon / holiday, you may have already heard that the food there was pretty expensive…so hotel will give u a choice to choose whether to buy the meal package in advance …but still, some told me that don’t expect too much on the food….

There are 2 major restaurants in the resort, one is at the in ocean villa side, and the other is opposite to our island where beachfront villa locates at….um..the food at our side is gd gd gd, but honestly speaking the food at the beachfront villa side is just so so…we just tried one dinner there and don’t ever wanna visit that again..


various choice of pastries for you to pick

i always like to make toast for breakfast

and the leftover of the bread is used to feed the fish …

Lunch buffet

Everyday there are various choice of freshly made salad….all the salads are super tasty and the one i love most is lobster salad and seafood salad….salads and desserts are on the buffet table while you can choose 1 main course on the menu..

nicely cooked and juicy beef

Tomato Risotto

Nice dinner at the In Ocean Villa Italian restaurant…(set dinner is much nicer than the buffet…we only had 1 this nice set dinner during our 3 night stay, bcos 1 day we went to the other side restaurant, and the other night was a mediterranean buffet…, i missed this nicely italian dinner)…

Italian Restaurant at the In Ocean Villa Side

My favorite of the night: Lobster Avocado Salad.....

Tiger prawn salad...the lobster salad is better though.

white asparagus soup..yummy

i miss this mango sorbet...' Can i have 1 more?' i wanna asked for more at that time.

Main course - snapper

my favorite again - ice cream......want more!!!

Collegaue: Grace, someone sent you a flower, pls go to reception & collect it..

Me (very confused, it was not my birthday nor someday special, n i just backed to office to work after honeymoon holiday days ago…who ‘s gonna sent me flowers?)…lots of ??? in mind while i was walking along the corridor to go acknowledge the gift…: ‘Can i have a look on the delivery address? ‘ (to ensure it was sending to the correct recipient….and it was correct…)

Immediately opened the gift card to see what’s going on…it was really a surprise that it was my highschool & university friend to send it over to say a surprise congrats on my wedding….

u’r just too sweet, sweetie!! Thank you so much and it was really a big surprise ever to receive a flower from a girlfriend…

Wish someday soon i’ll witness your important moment too!!!

Maldives memories

with 2 comments

Back to work life for 2 weeks already….while the memory of the wedding and the honeymoon trip is still vividly in my mind…it was such a relaxing trip in maldives , had nothing very special there, just sleep, eat , swim, relax, afternoon nap, eat and repeat the cycle for a few days…..but it was really nice to enjoy the beautiful sunrise , sunset, natural blue sky & sea breeze, sunshine and food…

the resort we’ve chosen was definitely a good choice, maybe even better if the drinks¬†were included in our Full Board (that means the package includes all meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner)….otherwise everything is just great and the villa is newly built and is perfect….

As we arrived Male at midnight, we needed to stay in another resort of Angsana and early next morning, we took the seaplane and headed to the island, Velavaru….it’s a 30 min ride and it’s my first time taking seaplane and it was cool to view all the atolls from sky…beautiful

Heading to the island

Atolls view from seaplane

about to arrive....this is the island opposite to us where the beachfront villa are located at. it is....amazing seeing villa are built in mid of the ocean!

Go Go Go!

Pavillion for sun tan....

This is just 'perfect'...

¬†More photos of this relaxing island to come soon….stay tuned…
