Weekend Escapade: Batam Island

Breezy late afternoon, lying semi-concious by the poolside with a great view...... me almost in heaven!
Turi Beach Resort chalet and surroundings...... peaceful! The tiny rock island and the long jetty.....
From the balcony.... awesome view! I'm in Paradise.....
The restaurant balcony - ala-fresco. Look at the lush greenies.....soothing....inviting.....relaxing.....
View from the poolside after sunset. Beautiful Asian architecture and relive the 'kampung' or village feeling.
The Turi Beach Resort view from hill top/guest car park. Tall coconut tree swinging gracefully by the seaside....notice the pagoda/Bali style multi level roof?
Candle lite dinner ala-fresco at Turi Beach. Great atmosphere and good food too. Thanks Rhon!
Spread of Minang's food at infamous Puti Bungsu Restaurant for lunch. I really like the Beef Rendang and Gulai Pucuk Paku - superb!.
European influence on the architecture of newly built Nagoya Mall, right in the center of Nagoya Hill.
