“Ang Mo” New Year just ended, Chinese New Year incoming!! Chinese New Year is about a month away, are you the type who does house visiting? Travel? Or sleep at home? For me, I travel overseas during this period every year (to avoid all the awkward questions, you know what I mean). Be it a short trip or a long trip, I will not be in Singapore during this period!! One of my favourite destinations is Batam!! Why? It is only about an hour away from Singapore, I can avoid the traffic to Malaysia and enjoy my personal time at the resorts/hotels in Batam. Everything there is so affordable. Good food, good service, and tonnes of fun. Personally, I think it is well worth both my time and my money!! Today, I would like to share this particular package from Weekendgowhere in case you have no idea where to spend your time over Chinese New Year!! Be sure to read on for more good deals!!
