2nd Batam Trip during the School Holidays : Day 1 of 3 (Part 2)

Posted Jun 15 2012 3:16am

Yesterday’s post was on the mundane stuff : Ferry and Accomodation . Today let’s get on to the fun we had on the first day there!

We were not interested in Mega Mall nor BCS Mall anymore, since we had been there on our 1st Batam trip . This time our focus is solely on Nygoya Hill!

Nygoya Hill Level 1 ~ Shop Shop Shop

The place is bigger and more exciting compared to the previous two malls! You can find a supermart at level one. Level one is basically shopping and there is even a section that reminds me of Sim Lim Square with all the electronics stuff.

Nygoya Hill Level 2 ~ Eat Eat Eat

Nygoya Hill Highest Level ~ Play Play Play

There is ONE Arcade at Level one…..

After shopping at the Hypermart at level 1, the kids were hungry. We totally could not resists going to A&W!!!

The boys loved Sand Art after they tried it for the very first time at my friend’s Toys Rental office on last Saturday 9th June (will blog about that happy event soon).

Thus when they saw Sand Art was available on the highest level of Nagoya Hill, they were drawn to it like a nail to a magnet!!! *giggle*

FIRST TIME DOING FISH SPA!!!!

Fish spa is available at level one. Not a shop but a promotional space in the middle of the atrium in front of the Hypermart.

I have heard that fish spa is ticklish and all 4 of us are afraid of being tickled, yet, the price is so affordable that we think its a Great Opportunity for us to try. Worse scenario would be we gave up before the 20 minutes ended. *bleh*

OMG!!!
It was hilarious!!!

Photobucket

The first dip:
Binbin LAUGHED SO LOUDLY!
Keatkeat GIGGLED SO LOUDLY!
Allan CHUCKLED NON STOP!
I HAD TO SLAP my face with two hands to keep my mouth shut!!!

Photobucket

After about a minute or two….

Binbin stood up because he could not stand the tickles under his feet anymore but was ok with the nibbling from the tiny fishes on the top of his feet and calf.

Allan was doing REALLY WELL!!!
Calmed down totally and started snapping photos of his feet and us.

Photobucket

Allan’s feet must have been full of dead skin! So much so that majority of the fishes went to his feet and only very few left swimming around Binbin’s feet. (They were in the same tank)

Photobucket

Allan’s hairy legs. *giggle*

Photobucket

Binbin’s ‘fishless’ legs

I learned from Binbin and started to put my feet down onto the tiny pebbles so that the fishes could not get to the sole of my feet. Only then could I truly calm down….

As for my drama king Keatkeat, Hhhhmmm…. it was money down the drain. He refused to put his feet down at all. After much persuasion, he agreed to put his feet down, but he kept moving his feet in the water, and NO FISH could have a PROPER Nibble on his feet. *eyes rolled*

Watch drama king in action here:
So don’t be fooled by the video. Though his feet are in, but they are constantly in action, so none of the fishes were on his feet at all. Only a couple on his calf.
(Allan did not know that he needs to hold his phone horizontally for filming. So the video is compressed. Well, cannot blame him, he was with his very first Samsung phone for 4 days only. )

While the kids were at A&W earlier, Allan spotted a big ‘Massage’ signage just opposite the road diagonally facing the restaurant and went off to check the price while the kids ate.

We agreed that THAT would be our last stop for the day! Thanks to the awesome rates!

This is the first time I had a full body massage ON A BED. It was small and made of wood. When the masseuse was with me on the bed at the same time for certain moments during the massage, I fear that the bed would break!!! ‘Cos it creaked so loudly with every move she made! *laugh*

Photobucket

Full Body Massage 1hour and 15min (but only lasted for 1 hour), total bill for four of us was 280,000. One person cost SGD$9.59 only!!! Soooooooo affordable! It was THIS reason that made us want to come back to Batam for the second time! *Super Duper Grin*

After a great massage, we went back to Nagoya Hill to ‘ta-bao’ (take-away) our dinner. While we were ordering our pizza at the entrance of Sarpino Pizza restaurant, their neighbour, Pizza Hut crews were twisting balloons for my boys!

I felt so uneasy because we did not order from them. Then again, we are in a different country and different culture, so maybe its normal for them to do such things, even to non-customers. *shrugged*

Photobucket

Some reviews on Nagoya Hills said that its a bore, I don’t know why. *shrugged* We totally enjoyed our time there! Same place, different people, different views. You must experience it yourself before you know if you like the place. *wink*

We loved it so much, we went back again the next day and spent the whole day there! Find out what we did in the next post. *wink*
