2 days 1 Night Batam Trip

Batam trip with 4ourz last weekend! We bought the ferry tickets at Qoo10 for cheaper rates! You may choose among the different ferry - Majestic, Sindo or BatamFast. We then decided on Majestic Fast Ferry. 

The following below is the schedule for Majestic Fast Ferry:

 *Note: Singapore is 1 hour ahead of Batam

We took the ferry at 11.45am. It takes about an hour before we reach Batam island! Upon arrival, we settle our lunch at Mega Mall Batam Centre.

We decided to have A&W because we miss the food! When I was young, I enjoyed their curly fries, waffle ice cream and wings! However, to my disappointment, I did not see any of the familiar fried wings in the menu. Instead, we had the 2 piece chicken meal. Nevertheless, the curly fries still tasted good on its own!

Then, we took a cab to Gideon Hotel! The place that we stayed for the night. We decided on this 3 star hotel at Agoda for its rather good reviews nicely decorated interior.

We requested for a high floor option. However, the receptionist told us that only level 6 or level 2 were available. We took our hotel room cards and proceed to level 6. To Huan and Sundu surprise, the room was being occupied. We then decided to take the rooms at level 2. Honestly, such misconception should be avoided. Other than this, I have nothing negative for my stay there.

The usual amenities are provided so you do not have to worry much about that. The room itself comes with a television and a fridge as well.

Then, we decided to walk around Batam city square mall since it was relatively near to our hotel. It was near to dinner time thus we had a rather hard time deciding what to have. Ultimately, we decided on hawker food.

Bak Kut Teh

After which, we went for massage at Universal Massage & Reflexology Centre! We opted for the traditional massage. Virgin try for massage and it did not appear what I expected. However, it was decent.


 Carrot Cake

 Crispy Squid

Kang Kong

Claypot Tofu

Lemon Chicken
Then, we went for supper! The carrot cakes were super addictive! The claypot tofu was decent as well. Other than that, the rest tasted average. 

The next day, we had our breakfast buffet at the hotel! After which, Me and SK played the darts at the bar corner. Then, we went back to our room to pack and checked out. 

We headed to sing karaoke at K'OK family karaoke for an hour! Though many songs are not updated but it was really affordable. Each person around SGD $1.50 per pax.

After which, we took a cab to Nagoya Hill. One of the biggest mall in the area. Honestly, the mall is somewhat similar to BCS. The only differences - there are more handphone accessories there as compared.

We had our lunch at Za cafe!

The food was affordable and tasted okay. The portion was rather small though.

Some goodies that I got from there! Remember to buy yourself a magnum ice cream! 
It cost only SGD $1.50 each.

If you do not already know, Batam is known for kueh lapis. Get yourself a box of Lamoist maybe? It cost only SGD $10 each! This is one of the popular kueh lapis in Batam! It has buttery and moist texture and tasted not too sweet. 

Tata~ Till then!
