Gili Island

Hello there!! I know I am late in sharing these recent pictures of our vacation to a beautiful island in Indonesia called Gili Island. Without further due, allow the photos do the talking... shall we?

Our arrival at Lombok Airport. This pic was taken by Chris :) It made us looked like "Superstar". LOL!!

Villa Grasia, our accommodation for 9 days. A very comfy and beautiful villa. FYI, We stayed at Gili Trawangan.

On our way for island hopping. We visited Gili Air.

Group shot at Gili Air :)

Enjoying the pool at Villa Grasia most of our evenings :)

Moi and my travel babe, Wati. This straw hut is where we had our lunch most of the time!

Cidomo - local word for horse drawn carriage.

On Gili Trawangan (as well as the other two Gilis - Gili Air & Gili Meno), there are no motorized vehicles. The main means of transportation are bicycles (rented by locals to tourists) and cidomo. We walked alot during our stay. For traveling to and from each of the Gilis, locals usually use motorized boats and speedboats.

At the jetty :)

Look at the beautiful beach. This island is perfect for snorkeling and some part it's awesome for surfing too!

Another group shot at the beach in front of our villa.

Lazy chairs for "beach warmers"

On the eve of new year, we had our buffet dinner by the beach! It was awesome! We were so close to the wave.

Chris, Mr Handsome & myself planned to wear superheroes tees. Guess what, we also got Lil Sponge Bob too :) Hehe

Fireworks went off just passed midnight!! It was an eventful night!

Last group shot on New Year's Day!! All of us got sun-kissed :)


We had to do transit in Changi Airport and we got to spend the night there! It was an adventurous night for us but it was all FUN!! Visiting Coach store at Changi Airport @ 6am was FUN too. LOL!
