Batam Trip 2014

August 05, 2014

Went for a short holiday to Batam with our maternal family for a night and I felt really happy that all of us is able to spend some time together, especially with my grandparents. I remember the previous time that we went for a holiday together was to Malacca years back. But not everyone was present for this trip this time round though, because they couldn't make it due to work or school.... that's why they are planning another day trip there again this month, which I'm not going. :x

Anyway, even though I brought my camera along for this trip, I didn't managed to use it to take any pictures at all. So for this post, all the pictures are taken by my iPhone! But even so, I think the quality of the pictures are not that bad still!
