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. Surely because of a lot of people come to Batam to try their luck (including me hehehe). Many developers develop land into housing for thousands of employee. The impact is, yes, crowded, traffic jam.
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.
