We were actually first scheduled to stay at KBR for only 5 days and in Manado for 2 days. However, there was a dslight change of plan becuase we wanted to have more dives. So we had 6 days in lembeh and just 1 day in Manado. We planned 2 days in Manado so we could kind of explore and see some sightseeings, but since we were only staying for a day, we would only spend the night there and then we'd have to go straight to the Airport for our flighT. Anyways, we styayed at the Quality HOtel, it was fabulous. Nevertheless, we had ourlast dinner in one of our favorite Restaurant, The Raja Sate. I was looking foward to this because the food there is simply delicious.
The last time we went here I ate tons and tons of food until I was bloated. We went to Raja Sate at 8.00 pm, it was quite late at niight and the restaurant was almost full. Lucky us, there was a set of table and chairs at the corner. Funny thing, This was the same seating place as we had last year when we went here. As I sat down the waiter handed me the menu. I looked through the pages and decided to have some Lamb satay, I knew this was one of Raja Sate's favourite dishes. The waiter looked at me and said "sorry, we're out of Lamb satay". I was like WHATTTT, how come??? we came here for this and stuff; well I didn't actually say that, I ordered some squids and prawn instead. Although I didn't get what I really wanted, the food was as tasty as ever. We got back to the hotel at 9.30-ish pm. We got back to the room and quickly went to bed.
We woke up quite early in the morning and packed all our things in our bags. We checked out ofthe hotel at 12 o'clock in the day. It took us an hour before we reached the airport, the driversaid that usually it woukd only take 30 to 40 mins. However, there was a traffic build up near the ferry dock, because everyone is going home for christmas. In that area, we remained stationary for more than 10 minutes, literally not moving at all. Assoon as the driver saw a gap in the traffic, he went for itand we finally got out of the jam. Before I could realise it, we arrived at the airport.
