Barelang Bridge is one of the icons of Batam Island. This bridge is a series of six bridges, connecting six islands, three of which became the name of this bridge: Batam, Rempang and Galang.
The scenery along the bridge is so amazing. The calm seas, without waves, surrounding many sparkling small islands.
With a relatively quite traffic, you can stop on the bridge to take photos or enjoy the view, like what I and my friend Julie Suroso did.
While waiting for our son, Junior, to join us in New York City from Austin, Texas, we took a quick trip to Atlantic City.
We arrived in Atlantic City on May 17, 2013, late afternoon and start searching for a hotel. The hotel has to be on the famous boardwalk.
We decided to stay at The Caesars. A huge hotel – kind of old compared to many other new establishments in the city- but the room was spacious and the public areas were luxurious and pleasant and the rate is much cheaper.
After we settled in, then it was time for us to explore the Boardwalk with its unique exterior.
If you were too tired or too lazy to walk, you could use this mode of transportation
A visit to Atlantic City would not be complete without trying your luck in the slot machines.
Malam ini tiba-tiba aku ingin sekali makan Kerak Telor. Diantar Maga, kami mencoba peruntungan pergi ke kawasan Tugu Monas. Ternyata pada malam Minggu seperti malam ini, banyak abang-abang yang menjajakan makanan khas Betawi ini
Kami berkesempatan untuk menyaksikan proses pembuatannya dengan seksama …, Sepertinya mudah untuk membuatnya sendiri.
Bahan-bahan yang dibutuhkan.
- Ketan putih, rendam selama 2 hingga 3 jam
- Telor bebek
- Serundeng kelapa
- Bawang goreng
- Ebi bubuk
- Garam, lada bubuk, gula pasir,
- Irisan cabai (bila diperlukan)
Panaskan wajan ukuran sedang di atas anglo dengan arang yang menyala panas.
Masukkan satu sendok sop ketan yang sudah direndam beserta airnya. Tutup dan biarkan selama 2 hingga 3 menit di atas anglo.
Buka tutupnya dan masukkan satu butir telor bebek, satu sendok makan serundeng kelapa gurih, satu sendok teh serundeng kelapa manis, satu sendok makan bawang goreng, satu sendok teh ebi bubuk, garam, gula dan merica secukupnya.
Aduk dengan cepat dan merata.
Bentuk menyerupai telor dadar dengan diameter 20 cm, tutup dan masak hingga harum.
Buka tutupnya dan balik wajan di atas anglo, hingga lidah api menjilat kerak telor.
Bolak-balik wajan, hingga kerak telor benar-benar matang dan harum baunya.
Tambahkan serungdeng dan bawang goreng lagi dan sajikan
Selamat mencoba dan menikmati.
Located in the Old City of Istanbul, Sultan Ahmet Mosque, known as the Blue Mosque was constructed by the 14th Ottoman ruler, Sultan Ahmet I. The construction of the mosque was started in 1609 by architect Mehmet Agha and completed in 1616. This mosque is the most splendid mosque in Istanbul, and the only one with 6 minarets in the city and in the country. Unfortunately only 4 minarets was captured in the above photograph.
And here is the one with the complete 6 minarets ...
Date of visit: 22 November 2012
The Gateway Arch, is the landmark of St. Louis, Missouri. With a height of 192 meters, this modern architectural structure is the tallest monument in the United States.
This monument is the most important part of the Jefferson Expansion Memorial Park, built to commemorate the westward expansion of the United States
Right behind this Monument runs the famous Mississippi River. At the river bank, there is a statue of Mark Twain.
I should have put this post in the Hotel category, but since I did not stay here, so I did not have the opportunity to view the suites’ accomodations.
My husband and I stopped by Amankila to enjoy lunch at the coffee shop, overlooking the Lombok Strait. Great views and outstanding food.

With the rates vary from US$ 1,000 to US$ 3,500 per night, this hotel is obviously reserved for those with money. Hope someday I can stay – or someone will invite me to stay – here and recount my experience to you all.
