weekend snapshot : 3 islands

It was a trip away from my desk again this week, and love it so much. Because 2 out of three places were places I’ve never been there before. 😀
From Jakarta to Batam Islands arrived at 6.00 pm on tuesday.
then on Wednesday, first thing in the morning using Foker 50 , we flied to Matak Islands. It was a chattered flight by an oil company, and I was the only women passenger :-D.

(you don’t count air strewardess as passsnger, right?)

So, there I was, an archipelago that rich for its Crude Oil, Fishes, and Cloves. it was my first trip here in Matak Island. I like to go back sometime. It was only for couple of hours, I didn’t took many pictures.

just look at the sea, so clear…so blue!

Then we flied back to Batam (and yes, this is my first trip to Batam as well) and took picture in the famous Barelang Bridge, the bridge that connect Batam islands with another 6 small islands.

the second picture isn’t my photograph, my colleague borrowed my camera.
Then, shortly after lunch…I went to Singapore (and no! even the previous places were in  Indonesia’s territory but I’ve never been there before,my trips to Singapore were countless)
There I was on Wednesday evening from Batam centre to Harbour Front, at elaine’s home town. 🙂

but yeah, it was my first trip to Singapore by ferry from Batam Islands, I usually fly to Singapore directly from Jakarta.
Wow, what a trip!
