Batam Trip 10-12 Nov..

Batam Trip 10-12 Nov..

November 13, 2010
Life, News Update, Tourism, Uncategorized, interesting place, travel living

Just back from Batam for the DMDI convention. This year convention was held at Sumatera Convention Center , Batam, Riau Archipelago. Well if you don’t know where Batam is you can always use google map. For west Malaysia and Singapore, Batam is well known. Like Phua Chu Kang – Best in Singapore, JB and Batam.

Malaysian always use ferry from Stulang Laut Johore Bahru to go there. No direct Flight from KL. Must transit at Jakarta. Easier to ride on a ferry. About 1 1/2 hours trip.

DMDI is Dunia Melayu Dunia Islam or The Malay Islamic World group lead and initiate by Melaka State Government. I am secretaries for Tourism Biro. Well… let’s not talk about the convention coz I know uolz not interested in sociocultural thingy.

Let’s talk about Batam. Batam is usual Place for us, like every year going there for meeting, seminar etc. This is because the location is closed to Malaysia and Singapore and have all the MICE facilities.

This time we were staying at Harmoni One Hotel. A 5 Star hotel with a 3 Star price compared to Malaysia.

One thing great about traveling to place like Batam are our money have bigger values. Thus shopping spree can be your number one activities. For example massage at hotel around $15 per hour..good deal huh?

Okay here are some pic…:

At the Harmoni One..


One thing that Indonesian really like to do..Folk Music


Our Melaka Maju Booth…


At the exhibition center..


One of the main Industry in Indonesia…Kretek Cigarettes..


The affordable SPA..manage to get one..


Going to late night meal, if you ordered the local made coffee here make sure to ask them first what’s in it because you don’t want to be shocked after that ;) ……

Breakfast Globally

Breakfast Globally

November 8, 2010
Life, education, travel living

What is the most Important meal of the day? Most people globally will said it’s breakfast. Nutritionist said that people who skip breakfast will likely to have problem like concentration and metabolism.

If you travel around the world, usually if you check in at any Hotel, the standard breakfast set we can find is English or American Breakfast that consist of eggs, bacon, sausages, accompanied by toast and tea or coffee. Biscuits, pancakes, waffles, bagels, French toast, English muffins, pastries etc.

Then it will added the local dishes from the nation itself. Like here, Nasi Lemak is the favorite Malaysian Breakfast you can find at all hotels and its can be categorized as heavy breakfast.

Reading about what you will eat for breakfast in the country you will be traveling to is a good Idea because you can comply with your routine diet or you can manage to find other restaurant rather than taking the breakfast at your hotel.

Like we Malaysian sure don’t have problem traveling around Asia like India, China or Indonesia. Why? Because we already use to to eat Cappati, Tandoori, Noodles or Tofu here.

Wikipedia have a comprehensive writing just about Breakfast in every continent in the world here.
