Part 4 of our series of ten posts on our stay at Telunas Beach Resort. For the other posts, do check this link.
Ling cracked a little joke on Matt after we firmed up our request for our Couple’s Candlelight Dinner on Day 2 evening. She said in jest, “Matt, we’re sorry – but we need to find you a baby-sitter.”
It was a candlelight dinner alright, though not quite for just the two of us. Hannah joined us for it, so it was really a family candlelight dinner! The activity was priced at SGD50+. Essentially, a table was laid out by the beach, and dinner comprised of a cone of yellow rice, beef rendang, deep-fried chicken, a-char, ikan bilis/peanuts, a beansprouts and coconut mix, and condiments. Dessert was the banana crepes that Tripadvisor guests have raved about. Food was in excess again for the three of us, and as with the other meals, delicious.
Ironically though, it got dark so fast that 20 minutes into dinner, we were struggling to see what we were eating! Within 40 minutes, it was nearly pitch dark with the only illumination coming from two candles which weren’t given off very much light. We hastily finished up dinner (keep in mind that there was heaps of food) before something foreign crept into our yellow rice LOL.
So; suggestion for visitors. Check to see how fast evening turns to night, and if you need to, ask to start the Candlelight dinner earlier.
