Was rather looking forward to the batam trip. Thinking is gonna be a getawat from work and having a relaxing holiday. Staff there is friendly. And i was glad there's someone there to pick us up at the ferry terminal. Guess there's too many of us so he actually have to make two trip. Check in was alright. They upgraded me to cabana suites. Was a little walk from the reception to room. Once entered the room, the first thing i look at is the bathroom.
there's lots of insects in the bathtub and even spider in it. So fine. we try to get rid of it. Well.. is a resort after all isn't it? Anyway i'm working in a resort as well so i don't really mind about that. The toothbrush and paste was totally.. omg!! maybe we're more used to higher standard? But looking at what they place there really makes me scare of using it. so fine. Me and my girlfriend thought we're just go get our own later.
After the shop at Nagoya Hill and Batam Centre we headed back to the resort. Maybe i'm little tired or not use to the things in batam i kinda down to fever. We went to reception to give them our ferry ticket and to collect our passport.We haven had our dinner so thought of having the pizza that we're entitle in the room as i'm not feeling well. I double check with the reception if it is possible to be order in the room he says YES. And we headed back make the call and room service person say we actually have to dine in. I was pretty upset over it as i'm already having a bad fever all of the sudden. And now i gonna walk all the way back again? But seems like we don't have much Choice. so we headed back.
After dinner i wanted to have a good shower and take my panadol head to sleep. To my surprise.. The showerhead is not working.. i tried to tap the sink it does't seems to work? so i jus gonna use the glass and cover it. Best of all. There isn't HOT WATER which i needed the most.
Heading to bed i found out there's BLOOD STAIN on the blanket!!!
If this is the kind of upgrade they're giving me. i rather stay in the deluxe room!! i was totally disappointed at the point of time.
Following day, we headed for breakfast.. Their breakfast selection is so so so so limited. And most of the food is cold. A young lady approached us asking us to help them with the feedback form. i wrote quite a few points. Till today. i'm still waiting for them to give me a good explaination!!!
