batam island // part 1
all we needed to do was went to deals.com.sg to book for batam's packages (which include tour guide,town visits, accommodation stays and 2-ways ferry)..we bought to stay in nongsa point marina and resort
batam island is located at the south of the singapore, which we can go anytime by ferry. my only doubt was..am i able to survive 45 minutes traveling in ferry? i have travel sickness, which included seasick (terrible,i knew)..i made it to batam without any dizziness or nauseousness.
i bought a lot of snacks from dry market..they sell locally-made chilli sauce too! the sales assistant gave sample for customers to try their chillies..let's me warn you..if you can't eat spicy food like me,please don't try the green chillies.the spiciness almost burnt my lips away!!
food in restaurant golden prawn 933 was average only. too much tourists, the quality did decreased..there was a lot of leftover especially the crab.. most people said polo outlet sell original polo shirt in lower price compared to singapore, yes it is true..but i didn't buy anything as the price gap was not much different.
desy brought us to massage centre too!! i added on aroma therapy for the massage package, the whole session was quite relaxing! i even tipped the lady rp20000!! which was $2.. haha,cheap!
