Maldvies – Day 2 (Part 1)

with 6 comments

Today is the 48 birthday of Singapore. Initially wanted to post a rather angtsy post (partly because of hormones) but decided against it as I didn’t want to spoil the celebratory mood everyone seems to be in.

So I am just going to continue with my Maldives travelogues!

(ok we took a massive amount of photos so I am going to spilt Day 2 into 2 parts!)

I seriously love sitting at the balcony, enjoying the breeze and reading so much! Wish the construction near our home would finish soon so we can make use of that space more often. But anyway, this post is about Maldives hahaha.

Both of us in beach attire! ๐Ÿ˜€

The weather was so gorgeous.

I know it doesn’t look like it but the waves were pretty rough on this side of the island, which stinks because the water was clearer over here.

One of the things I love about Veligandu is that we don’t have to wear shoes anywhere. The restaurants, bar, reception area etc all have sand covering the floor so we don’t have to bother with shoes. It was really refreshing, walking everywhere barefooted and I really enjoyed it!

So it rained again and we sat at the bar waiting patiently for it to stop, which it did just in time for us to head over to the restaurant for lunch.

And we went for snorkeling lessons after! Both of us had not snorkeled before, so we signed up for the basic snorkeling lesson. Didn’t bring our camera because we wanted to concentrate on learning :p

Did see some fishes and saw a jellyfish float past us too =o I was super thankful that both of us didn’t get stung throughout our whole trip even though we were out at the sea for quite a fair bit!

After our lesson, we went back to our villa to snorkel a little.

But the waves were still super rough -_- and there were a lot of jellyfishes on our end too so we gave up after a while. Felt so sad that I couldn’t snorkel in our own ‘backyard’!

We decided to soak up some sun instead.

And I caught up on some reading. Don’t judge me, it’s a good beach read! :p

Love the fact that I am two shades darker now! Even though a lot of people commented that I am still quite fair wtf.

Happy long weekend my fellow Singaporeans xx

    • the busiest period is during christmas and easter. so generally from oct-end april would be peak period, and may/june marks the start of the monsoon season!

  2. Well done on trying snorkeling! The water looks lovely and I have seen some super big waves in 2011, it was quite scary. The food looks great too, maybe I will try Veligandu next year ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Ahh! I’m dying to go to the Maldives! I saw a special about it on the travel channel years ago. Your photos are great! I’m also a big Sophie Kinsella fan, although I think I read the first three books and that was it, I didn’t realize the series continued, time to go book shopping ๐Ÿ™‚
