Jogjakarta, My First Impression

20 years ago,I was a sophomore in high school sitting in wide-eyed wonder as my teacher talks about Buddhism and attaining Nirvana showing us several photos of the stupas.  I can still clearly remember when I first heard about the majestic Borobudur Temple in Indonesia like it was just yesterday.

Batam City in My Perspective

Been living for almost 3 months in this city, I’m still trying to find my comfort zone. Slow but sure I believe I’ll find it. Every city in Indonesia has their own atmosphere, soul, and social life. Jogja, Solo, Bandung, Jakarta, even Padang and Samarinda, all those Cities have their authentic. What about Batam?

Okay, this is my second chance to step on my feet on this island. My first impress, Batam is more crowded than my first visit on 2007.

Negative Impression? No at all. Batam always has fascination to be visited. At least that’s what I feel ater stay for almost 3 months. Barelang, Nongsa, Harbour Bay, and many uncover exciting places are wait to be revealed. I try to capture every interesting moment in Batam city. This is the first chapter. Enjoy.
