Notes by yeyette on Friday, October 14th, 2016 under Borneo
Christmas is known to celebrate for get together with family and friends. Going back to my country on Christmas is very expensive so me and my housemate decided to spend Christmas away from everything. Then Borneo came to our mind and so we went.
It was December 23, 2015 and everything was just normal. No Christmas songs in Kuching International Airport, not even a decoration. I miss Christmas songs and party and singing with friends for the first time. It was a quiet Christmas that time.
We stayed in Damai Puri Resort and Spa and we have to argue with the receptionist because they won’t allow us to check-in even though we pay our room on December 23, 2016. We arrived midnight December 24 and they said we can only check-in at 10AM. Nat, my housemate asked the receptionist to call the manager and woke her up and good thing that she managed to let us check-in. Sometimes, hotel policies are weird and not based on the satisfaction of the customer. They let us stayed in an upgraded room facing the swimming pool.
They have a small white sand beach.
We normally spent our days here if we are not on tour.
You can buy a souvenir here.
The spa house.
Looks like a good door.
Who wants to play in these giant chess?
And they have giant ladder game-board too!
Late in the afternoon, when I do my business, the toilet flush is not flushing and the kids’ footsteps upstair was loud. So we asked if they can move us to a quieter place. They move us to the jungle side which was very nice I can hear crickets in the evening and birds singing. It puts me to sleep while listening to them.
The shower room.
They have a safety box.
And our view from the balcony.
I went down to take a look at the surroundings.
Lovely Christmas, yah?
