Batam Island Escapade

We went to Batam Island for my mom's birthday treat. It was baby Gian's first overseas trip. 

We arrived at Harbourfront Ferry Terminal at around 8am. Our ferry was scheduled to leave at 9:20am.

We boarded the Batam Fast ferry at exactly 9am. My mom (in red blouse and white necklace) looked thrilled.

We departed on time. The TV monitor demonstrated how to put on the life vest.

Baby Gian behaved so well during the entire trip. He kept looking around his surroundings and enjoyed  his celebrity status

The ferry stopped over at Sekupang Ferry Terminal. 

We took the chance to explore the upper deck.

Photo opp at the upper deck. Hubby greeted me Happy St Velentine's Day. He was trying to save money so we celebrated heart's day in advance. Lol! 

Loved the view at the upper deck! Too bad we couldn't stay too long for safety reasons. 

Thank God we arrived safe and sound at our destination. Waterfront City here we come!

FYI: Batam is a small yet charming Indonesian island, strategically located close to the Malacca Strait and Singapore. Only 45 minutes by ferry from Singapore’s Harbor-front, Batam acts as a gateway to 3,000 islands in the Riau Archipelago of Sumatra. The island is one of the most frequented tourist destinations, welcoming over one million visitors each year and is second only to Bali in popularity. ~ SOURCE
