Wedding Marathon

Hi everyone

The past few weeks I had been so busy with the weddings going on in the family. There are 3 of my cousins tying the knot starting from the middle of March, April, and the early of May.

I am so happy for all of them. Wishing them a happy married life forever. Ameen.

One of a very few pictures of myself. I was on duty to be photographer in every wedding so yeahh the consequences was I wouldn't appear much in photos :"(

And oh yaa, the last wedding was held in Tanjung Pinang so...

"Once a year, go some place you've never been before." Dalai Lama.

Yes! Done done!

I took that quote too seriously bcoz I consider last year, 2015, as the most boring year bcoz I didn't travel to any new place.

Okay.. So I took flight to Batam from my city for just 1 hour flight and then from Batam I took ferry ride for 1 hour too and voila.. I landed in Tanjung Pinang!

Tanjung Pinang is a nice city. It's occupied a small island called Bintan Island so it is surrounded by sea on its every edge. The weather is nice and not hot at all. The food is awesome too! You'll find a lot of fresh sea food. When I visited a relative's house they served lots of big fresh prawn dish, my favorite! And on the wedding as well, the catering served big fresh prawn dish too. I forgot to ask one aunty how much the price od prawn per kilo here, but I guess it's not as costly as my place.

We also went to eat out on an open-air food courts nearby the shore and there were lots of variety of food to choose, from Chinese food (both Halal and non-Halal), Javanese food, Melayu food, sweets, etc etc.

One of my uncle who once lived in Tanjung Pinang for 4-6 years told us that Tanjung Pinang is also known as 1000 kedai kopi or 1000 coffee shops bcoz there are lots of coffee shops around. I think it's bcoz drinking coffee and hanging out in coffee shops have become a habit of Melayu people.

Other than Tanjung Pinang, Batam is quiet hotter in temperature but is more advance and modern. Would love to explore more of Batam (read: to shopping) in future bcoz this time we landed here for transit only.

Not much pict taken, which I really regret. Sorry guys I just don't know I didn't remember to click any pict, even a random one #bloggerfailed
