I booked the tickets for my trip to Maldives during early January with Club Med Maldives for SGD$5,244 including their membership fees of SGD 60 per pax.
This is a fully sponsored trip for Le Hubby from me, obviously~ It was to reward him for all his hard work at home with Valeriepoo and me and also to take him away on a break away from his job.
As of why I have decided to go with Club Med is because it is hassle-free and cheaper than doing it separately. Which means I have to book the flight, book the hotel stay, the activities available in Maldives are not little too and of course the expensive Food there! Okay, you get what I am saying~So now does it seem like I made a wiser choice to go with Club Med instead? Everything are prepared and planned nicely for you! Everything! All activities, food and FREE FLOW OF ALCOHOL! Yes, you heard me. FREE! Well, since this is a trip to pamper ourselves, we deserve the best treatment!JUST EAT, DRINK, PLAY, REPEAT!!!
Actually, you don't have to worry you're missing some of the activities. Snorkeling, Sailing, Aqua Aerobics, Yoga, Cooking Demo, Karaoke etc.... are all included in the package. Though, there are some exclusions also, such as Spa, Massages, Parasailing, Banana Boat which you have to pay as you want to participate. But come on, with so many activities already included, these exclusions are small cases lah.
On top of all these, we are flying Silkair to Maldives and Sinagpore Airlines back. No need for budget at all!!! HOW CAN WE NOT GO WITH CLUB MED LEH! HAHA

Just when you thought Club Med wasn't meticulous enough, we received a message from them saying to download their Club Med App from the App Store.
It has their daily schedules for activities, the names of the restaurant that we can dine in, the facilities etc.... The app was so easy to use and most importantly, they have all the information that we required at a the tip of our fingers. BRAVO!!
Next, of course would be deciding what to wear for my trip to Maldives. HEHE! It is very important hor!!
Decided to borrow a few pieces of beach dress from Rayne for this trip. Don't want to waste $$ on something that I might only wear once. Okay, so that does not really sound like me....Le Hubby heard me saying it and even his toes are laughing because he have seen me bought clothes that still have the tags on them till now. FINEEE.... I never deny that lah. So now is a good start what!...
Actually there are a lot of activities we did not managed to try. Like Sailing, Movies under the Stars, some Plays at the Theatre, Karaoke... But since we decided this is a relaxing trip, we will just lay back and enjoy the view and our awesome Suite.
And OH! I forgot to mention... EAT!!!
