These few days, the coast of Sumatra, including the neighboring countries are attacked by haze. After much research, I discovered that it is caused by the so-called ‘slash-and-burn’ techniques in Dumai, Riau.
Even worse, for a few days in Batam, there are no water and no electricity.
As of 22nd June, I am glad to say that the haze is no more visible in Batam and Singapore, and is now heading to Kuala Lumpur.
I came back home last Friday (30/05). This was my first time going home by bus via Johor Bahru, and then by a ferry to Batam, Indonesia.
Woke up at 6 early in the morning to catch the 8.00 am bus. My last night in Malaysia, I slept i my roommate’s bed, because I already moved all my stuffs, including the bed.
The bus to Kajang is really packed. They reduced the schedule by a lot.
After arriving in Bandar Tasik Selatan, I noticed that there are 6 people from the same bus who went to the same counter with me. I booked mine already for 11.30, but since they have spot for the 10.00, I took the 10.00 bus. It was by a company named KKKL.

The trip was relatively nice. Arrived in Johor Bahru in 3.5 hours time! That is like really fast.
Aha! Caught the driver over-speeding!
The exit to my university!
View of the Bandar Tasik Selatan bus terminal. It is, by far, the most sophisticated bus terminal I have ever seen.
Getting myself really comfortable
Then after, from Johor Bahru, I took a ferry to Indonesia. Finally, after months, I’m back here in Batam!
The sea, something that I really missed.
