Ninja Akasaka, Tokyo’s Themed Restaurant ( 忍者赤坂レストラン )

ninja akasaka directions
Be warned foodies, this is not your usual kind of restaurant! Diners enter this Japanese eatery through secret doors in pitch dark led by a Ninja. Even the entrance is hard to locate; it took us some effort to find the main entrance to the restaurant which is a small black door almost non-existent.

walt disney california disneyland donald duck
I have always been a Disney girl as a child and had embarked on a solo trip to Disneyland Resort in California in 1985 at the age of 20. Oh yes, I travelled all the way to USA just to meet my favourite Disney characters! Disney is a place where dreams come true! You can imagine the excitement and back then, it was a big thing for someone to travel so far alone unlike these days. Thereafter, I visited Hong Kong Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland on numerous occasions, and not forgetting Disneyland Paris. Now I am left with Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Shanghai Disney Resort, and of course the Aulani Disney Resort and Spa in Hawaii to complete my Disney therapy!

My last visit to Tokyo DisneySea was probably more than a decade ago when it first opened. So I was really looking forward to this trip, and certainly thrilled to be part of the “ Tokyo DisneySea 15th Anniversary: The Year of Wishes ” celebration!

Located adjacent to the popular Tokyo Disneyland Park on the shores of Tokyo Bay, DisneySea is themed to the myths and legends of the sea. The Park features seven distinct themed ports, and it is designed as a world filled with adventure, romantic stories, discovery, and fun, where adventure and imagination set sail.

When my kid was younger, it was always Bintan equals to Club Med or Golf; it is just another boring place without these. Boy, how wrong was I! I have to admit the last time we visited Bintan was probably more than a decade ago, and thanks to the good people of Bintan Lagoon Resort, my family and I had the chance to rekindle the lost memories we left behind in the sunny tropical island.

Our recent Bintan Lagoon Resort Staycation is not as boring as you think. Our Day 1 kicked off with a exhilarating Land Activity, trying out their ATV ( All Terrain Vehicle ) operated by Action Challenge. We opted for a Single Seat Quad Bike (Rp 665,000 for 30 minutes) and a Double Seat Quad Bike (Rp 910,000 for 30 minutes), with a guide taking us into the forested area after our safety briefing. *100,000 Indonesian Rupiah is approx USD 7.65 or SGD 10.60.

The ATV activity was kinda interesting for me since I have never been on a motorbike. The two guys were also having a ball of a time especially Jonathan who has the quad bike all to himself. This is definitely a must-do when you are in Bintan. Don’t worry if it is your first, it was ours too! There will be a clear safety briefing and basic instructions on how to handle the four-wheelers. There will also be an ATV Staff accompanying you for the adventure.
