Hope you guys who have read my Day 1 in Tanjung Pinang found it useful or enjoyed it at least! There were too much to write in 1 post (Yeah I’m lazy haha), so here’s the last part:
Well.. partly because we were abit late when we went for the breakfast, so there weren’t much food left, but TBH there were not much variety as well.
I wasn’t able to finish the breakfast also partly because I can see ants crawling around the table, and they get up to your plates really fast. So yeah I gave up after a mouthful. :O
Apparently, this monastery is one of the attractions that people would visit, even the locals. Interestingly, we saw mostly the local instead who were visiting the temple for some photo taking, few tourists haha.
Went for some house visiting before we finally have lunch! The restaurant was quite a longgg drive away from the town though. :O
What’s Bintan w/o Kelong & seafood right~ Btw, Kelong is a Malay word describing a form of offshore platform built predominantly with wood, which can be found in waters off Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia, something like this:
I think we were all hungry that I didn’t want to disturb everyone’s makan time, so only this photo for the food we ordered oops. Oh but I tell you, these 2 dishes (Garlic fried chicken & Salted egg cuttlefish) were delicious, as well as the other dishes not in the photo.
After a long drive back to town again, we visited Rimba Jaya, where the area is full of hipster cafes/restaurants. We wanted to visit a Japanese restaurant there initially, but the restaurant was full and waiting time is long (There goes my ramen:()
Their desserts are similar to the ones you have at Blackball if you have tried before (photo was blur so nah not posting), so if you are a fan of those, you should visit here! Plus, they have main course too! We ordered the salted egg chicken to try, not bad yo 😛The cafe is open from 1700 till 2300 daily, which btw the restaurants/cafes in the area are only open in the evening. So DON’T come early!
& then it was the last activity for the day: SLEEP 😀
Went for a ‘city tour’ literally after that, & I managed to see the house where my mum grew up in! :O To mark an end of the wonderful 3D2N stay, we went to a local cafe that specialize in bread & toast! I will write about this soon!
That’s the end of my 3D2N in Tanjung Pinang! Probably will be back again soon, update you guys with new stuff!
