However, I am doing it by personally moving around in Batam as I love to travel, sightseeing and photo shoot while walking. Also, by collecting information from the related sectors.

There are some sites that helped me too for the primary information.

By the way, in the year 2000, I had one web site on Batam and, I did it totally by hand coding. But, that was not continued after some time, due to financial and some technical problem, while I moved to a different career for the living.

As, I did a website before, nearly 18  years back and I am creating this blog again in 2018. And, really I miss my first site.  So, I want to do it again with the latest technology such as blogs, mobile for easy photography.

Now Batam has grown a lot comparing the first website I did. I hope, even it may take time, but it is going to be nicer than the earlier of my own site.

My earlier experiences related to web development was mainly hand coding as I mentioned above. From HTML to visual basic, later on, I engage myself to learn Open Source technology, such as PHP, MySql, XML including CSS.

Also, now involved with Blogger, Joomla and WordPress CMS platforms.
