In Batam, you find girls from four sources:
1) Pub-freelancers, mostly from the Sugar Pub or Ice Pub (behind the Hotel
2) Booking girls from karoake or massage places (over 30 joints).
3) Disco-freelances in Planet, Sphinx and Ozon.
4) Music lounges such as Tavern, Tampico & Baralang Garden (next to Puri Garden Hotel).
Girls in Batam generally cost from 250-280K1(Street-wise
Tip). The prices mentioned are not absolute but depend on a variety
of factors such as day and time of booking, 'new' girl or 'standard' or
'left-overs'(poster: Rp250 all night. flat rate, taxi or not. ugly
"like a dog's arse" so most likely she will be available.), after
mid-night, familarity with the mamsan, taxi commission, etc. The prices
quoted are what some posters paid.
Queen 8933: 270k for a booking and Rp100K for a short-time. Tip:There is a security guard at the front. Ask for Capri, who can guide you.

Nagoya Fish Tank Update (long)
by Hum Sup Loh.
Nagoya Fish Tank Update. On a very quiet Wednesday
afternoon, we had a look around a cross section
of Nagoya's karoake bars and fish bowls. This
is what we found.
1] KOLEKTA DISTRICT This is the
area behind Hotel Royal Eastern /Pizza Hut.
DRAGON GIRL -- Our first stop was in the Kolekta
area, where we visited a new joint called Dragon
Girl, evidentally taken over and remodelled
from the old Queen Bee, which the place was
called before. Dragon Girl is a branch of Hollywood
and just newly opened. Very few ladies yet,
so we moved on to have a look at the venerable
Lious' Pub (sp?), owned by the same guy who
also owns Mutiara and the old Horison (now renamed
Queen Bee was badly run - but the Hollywood
people have put a lot of effort into making
Dragon Girl renovation look good. Will be
worth another visit when they get some girls.
LIOUS PUB Lious Pub and Horison are actually
in the Windsor - Sinda Happy pujasera area,
but not so far from Kolekta. Anyway, Lious'
tank had a very good selection of young ladies
from Indramayu (the Lious group speciality),
including a couple of very nice young ladies
that I remember from Batu Tujuh back in '98.
Mami was polite and not pushy. We should have
stayed a for a couple of beers and chatted
with the girls that took our fancy.
PURNAMA (EX-HORISON) About 15 girls in the
showroom. No too bad.
PERSONA ENTERTAINMENT Same owner as Queen
8933 Massage. Nicely remodelled with a stage
and dance area downstairs. No more fish tank.
A happy looking bunch of girls now sit in
the room. Not so many girls as a couple of
years ago. A nice room to hang out in.
SOGO 89 KAROAKE - A new joint on the main
road near Sindo Happy. We didnt go inside.
2] PURI GARDEN HOTEL AREA MUTIARA:
We only visited one fishtank in this area
- the Mutiara. Typical koroake layout with
fishtank in back of room. A good selection
of young ladies to choose from. Nice enough
s/t rooms upstairs. Cant tell about the girls
as they are stuck int he tnak - you have to
bring them out and talk a little first to
guage their mood.
3] BEHIND BANK BALI This is the
area to the Jodoh side of the Hotel Lai Lai
(which is in turn on the Jodoh side of the
JUNGLE MINDAH PUB A scruffy karoake joint opposite
the Lai Lai carpark. Lots of happy cheerful
girls. Opening price for a booking (no taxi
commission) was a reasonable Rp200,000. Full
marks for cheerfulness.
BRITANNIC KAROAKE A new joint called the
Britannic opened last week - owned by the
same group that owns the Titanic in the Hotel
Oasis and the Kedia Kopi Indah. A nice renovation
and lots of very sweet waitress girls. But
only 3 in the fishtank. Mami promises 20 more
are coming from Jawa in a couple of weeks.
SEDONA COUNTRY KAROAKE Another scruffy joint
with cheerful girls. Worth a visit.
4] HOTEL HARMONI / MELIA AREA HAWAII
KAROAKE - A dark room, hard to see the girls.
Rp175k for s/t includes a comfy room. A few
nice honeys if you take the time to look.
PP BANANA - This was our last spot. By the time
we got here, it was already dark. We have a
couple of beers in the new Ethnic Pub (next
to Lucy's) then went upstairs to the PP Banana
when it opened at 6.30pm. A small selection
of bright and happy young women.
5) PELITA AREA If you take the road
past the Hotel Puri Garden and turn left to
go past Maxim nightclub, you are in the Pelita
area. We missed visiting the (usually well
stocked) Hotel Pelita Karoake, but managed
to visit Sensasi.
HOLLYWOOD is opposite the Hotel Pelita. Posted

Current situation at Batam?
Are those popular hotel Formosa/Seruni still
full on weekend? Freelence price drop or still
same as early this year? Thank you.
Freelance prices / Formosa
/ Seruni hotels by Helpdesk
Yes, freelance prices are just the same as
last year: How much? Whatever you and the
girl agree upon - typically between rp100k
and one million.
Formosa and Seruni hotels are still popular
on weekends. Posted on Apr 12, 2003, 8:34
Freelancer Price-Rp100k to Rp 1 million
Thats S$20 - S$200, please be more specific.
Posted on Apr 14, 2003, 3:15 PM
Correction: Freelance prices actually range
from free to Rp5 million by Helpdesk
Free is when the girl lkes yo. 5 million is
when she steals your wallet while sleeping.
Most Batam f/l are looking for Rp200-400k.
Bargain first. Batam f/l's are not as good
a deal as Jakarta.
Batam is a hard place for a f/l girl to survive.

Bintan Batu 24 trip report (long) by Johm
A couple of days ago, I visited Bintan Island
and made a trip to the village of joy at Batu
Dua Pulu Empat (in English: Kilometer 24).
I been here before and find this to be a very
safe and friendly village.
The going rate for a taxi, one way from Tanjung
Pinang ferry terminal is Rp30-35,000. Others
have said that the drivers of the small white
station wagon taxis at the jetty are no good,
but I have found them all to be okay guys.
Just get the taxi to drop you there (in Indonesian
"satu kali jalan").
At the village, the going rate is Rp50,000
s/t and Rp200k all night "booking" (sleep
in the girl's room). + Rp15k police report
money. The village is reasonably clean and
well kept. The locals are very friendly. The
girls are nearly all from Java. There were
some very cute ones among them.
Taxis back to town are easy to find, they
cruise looking for business, you may have
to wait 10 - 20 minutes fro one to show up.
Book a girl for the night, leave your stuff
in her room (use a lockable bag). Bring a
good book, as there nothing else to do except
s/t, drink cold beer and eat local food (3
eating places in the village). It ideal to
arrive at about 4pm and leave the next morning.Spend
the couple of hours before dark oing a couple
of circuits of all the houses and have a joke
around with the girls. You will find them
to very willing and friendly. All in all,
a very very pleasant overnight break. Posted

My virgin sexcapade to Tg Pinang by
The ferry ride
Board the ferry from JB, and feckingly it
only left the terminal at 5pm, half an hour
late than scheduled time. But surprisingly,
still manage to reach Tg Pinang by 7pm (6pm
local time), a two hours ferry ride. Found
out that certain ferry only incur 2 hours
ride while others require 2.5 hours.
At the Tg Pinang jetti
About Tg Pinang
Proceed to the immigration clearance
and it was smooth. The officer was very friendly
and always smiling. Never require to pay any
¡§coffee money¡¨ for
a first timer to Tg Pinang like in Tg Balai.
One plus point for a good impression on Tg
Pinang. Next, the custom and security, no
hassle also. Another plus point. While at
the jetti, I did not see any tout or ojek
drivers hassling the tourists. Well, it may
have some but definitely not as aggressive
and many as those in Tg Balai. Another good
Once out of the jetti, the ever helpful X is
waiting there. They have reserved a room for
me at Rainbow Hotel. we board the hotel van.
We lodged at this Rainbow hotel, where X has
been staying there often. The room rate is
S$50 inclusive of breakfast (they have S$40
room but fully booked) per night or approx
Rp250k. Do not pay in RM as ****ty conversion
rate is given. Very friendly and well-mannered
reception staff, and most of them can speak
very decent english.
The hotel provides quite a few facility,
including swimming pool (too bad if you are
thinking of having some ¡§kinky¡¨
activity with your cewek in the pool, as they
are not allowed to enter the pool for reason
that I dunno), satellite TV, Spa, restaurant
and others. The most notable is the free hotel
transport for guests, by van or kijang. Just
have to tell them the destination and time
with some advance notice and they will arrange
for you. Same for pick up, tell them the time
and place to wait and they will be there.
But no waiting though, eg they fetch you for
dinner and wait there, it will be considered
chargeable. It¡¦s a handy service
as you need transport to move around in Tg
The room is ok by my standard.
TV, mini fridge, bed (KNN, I was given a twin
bed room, instead of a queen size bed), a
balcony overseeing the pool (what for, no
cewek allowed in the pool, what is that to
see?), aircond, bathtub in the washroom. For
S$50, I think the hotel in hadyai gave better
value for money. But this is the standard
in tg Pinang.
After a quick shower, we head down to the
hotel restaurant that came highly recommended
by NF, for dinner. It serve mainly chinese
delicacy and I have to agree, the food and
price speak for itself. I would have to say,
it can gives those ¡§famous¡¨
restaurant in KL a run for their money. Not
to mention the attentive and friendly service
of the restaurant staff, prompt serving and
nice-clean ambience. I was asked to comment
on their service by filling up the questionnaires.
Ha, the most important part for the whole
trip. It was already 7.30pm after we finished
the dinner. Given that it¡¦s
Saturday, late at night, and fasting month,
X has been trying to manage my expectation
on the gals quality and selection quantity.
First, we moved to the two outlets within
walking distance from the hotel. Not many
gals left and okay quality. Knowing it¡¦s
late and there won¡¦t be any
I wanted to bring me to Batu 15 and 24, saying
it¡¦s like paya labu in Balai.
But given the time constraints, spending too
much time travelling isn¡¦t wise
Then we headed to Bintang Plaza area by ojek.
The ojek ride is only Rp5k (compare to Rp10k
in Balai and somemore the average travelling
distance is much shorter). Plus the ojek riders
do not ride as gungho as those in Balai. Another
Reached Bintang Plaza. On an usual day, it
will have around more than 6 joints. We browsed
thru 3 joints and all parades are of so so
quality. Thought of heading back to the joint
nearby the hotel. While walking to the main
road, this tout invited us to see (quite a
few joints there, and we won¡¦t
know which is still opened for business as
the front gate door has to be closed during
the fasting month) his joint. And wah la,
saw this cute looking gal with the body shape
that I like, and her face resemble an ex-colleague
of mine. Only concern, she look too young
to be bonk. Confirm with mamasan that she
is at least above 17 before I booked her.
Gal price ranges from Rp150k to Rp250 on average.
Was quoted Rp250k but X managed to cut it
down as we came with no ¡§taxi¡¨.
We went poultry farm shopping again the next
morning. This time in ¡§Suka Berenang¡¨.
Dun ask me why is a place called such name,
I have no clue. Get a pretty gal there for
ST, but decided to change it into LT as it
only costs an incremental of RM30. This gal
is okay, but also not too great in terms of
on the bed service.
Other entertainment activities
As my time there was short, didn¡¦t
manage to explore any other stuff. Further,
the disco and karaoke outlets were forced
to close during the fasting month.
Posted on Feb 11, 2003, 8:29 AM
The gals in Tg Pinang, I found, possess better
attitude. Not speaking from just the two gals
I booked, but also from my observation of
the gals X booked. But the only drawback is
most gals do not do BJ, and lots of them are
very very young (I mean, even as young as

Golden pointers for Batam cheongsters
1. Always go with your good guy friend/friends.
Not only because it'll be filled with more
'macho' fun, but it'll be good to have a friend
watch your back, comment on whether your chosen
girl is actually a 'dog'...etc
2. Change your money in Batam. The rates at
the estb money-changers are ALWAYS better
than in S'pore.
3. Always hire a driver for the whole trip,
rather than take many cabs. Not only will
a hired-driver save you time and money, the
service is way better than a cab-driver's.
I recommend Robbie, who sits inside the small
Indah Puri golf office at the Sekupang ferry
terminal. I've used his drivers twice (S$40/day)
and the cars are large, A/C and comfy, and
the drivers are nice guys.
4. Always pick your girls from a ****-shop
(as opposed to getting freelancers). Mummies
are responsible for the good behaviour of
the girls you book, so you can complain to
the mummy if anything goes wrong. But who
do you call when your freelancer leaves with
your wallet while you are in the shower?
5. Take your time to pick the girls at the
****-shops. Don't pick by looks alone. Get
the mummy to ask her to sit with you for a
while, so that you get to know her a little
better before you make your choice. Choose
a girl whom you think likes you also, because
this is a sure-fire way to great 2-way sex.
6. Treat the girls politely at all times,
and chances are, they will be more relaxed
and let loose also.
7. Carry all valuables with you all all times
(wallet, passport, phone, spare cash), because
hotel staff (who earn S$200-300/month) may
be tempted. Anyway, can you imagine the hassle
having to report your losses at a Batam police
8. Don't even think about doing illegal drugs.
Getting jailed in S'pore will be the LEAST
of your worries if you are 1st busted by Batam
police. I don't think that you will even want
to send you worst enemies to a Batam jail.
9. Use a condom for ALL sexual activities,
including blowjobs. You cannot see that contagious
oral-herpes rash she has under her tongue.
10. At all times, use common sense, don't
show 'I-got-more-money-than-you' attitude
to anyone, smile and take it easy. It's a
holiday afterall. Posted on Apr 3, 2003, 4:48
Here is a useful travel-to-Batam FAQ by
Surfer found at http://www.webcom.com/leongsam/batamfaq.html
Batam FAQ Courtesy of Quint7 and the Gang
BATAM & HOW TO GET THERE
There're as much as 6 or 7 ferry terminals
in Batam but the 2 that will lead you to the
action is Batu Ampar and Sekupang. Ferries
depart dailyfrom World Trade Centre and journey
takes about 45-60min for both. Most prefer
B.Ampar becus of shorter travelling time(
5-8min ) to Nagoya town where all the action
are compare to Sekupang ( 20-25min to town
But if u just miss the ferry & don't wanna
wait another hour or wanna less crowded ferry
& terminal, u can take the one leaving for
Sekupang about 20-30min later. At WTC u can
purchase a 2 ways ticket inclusive of seaport
tax btw $20 - $26 just half an hour before
departure, give yourself an hour if you're
looking for a hotel/ferry package provided
by the many tour agency here. Dino & Penguin
are the prefer ferry operator here, we each
bought a Penguin ticket($26) for the 11:15am
ferry, later found there is another counter
sellin at $23, dunno why.
Schedule of Penguin Ferry SG to B.Ampar (
sg time ) 0735/0850/0930/1015/1115/1250/1350/1450/1555/1655/1745/1825/1850/1925/
B.Ampar to SG ( Batam time ; sg:11:15am =
btm:10:15am ) 0650/0740/0910/1045/1140/1240/1345/1420/1545/1615/1710/1750/1840/1910/
here're some reasonable ferry/hotel package
provide by Penguin:
novotel/harmoni - $98
melia/mandarin - $95
royal/oasis - $85 extension nite : $50-$65
ask for a few dollars discount if you don't
intend to use their bus for pier to hotel
transportation. these are usually available
even at last min on a busy Sat, becus most
people will not opt for 4-5 stars hotel. I've
tried melia, cool ! but 1 plate of nasi goreng
cost Rp35K !!!
Here're some 3 stars hotel info provided
on courtesy of Bionic :
Singa : 0778 - 451919 ( $35 - $40 ) 2000
: 0778 - 428483 ( $36 - $48 )
Rashinta : 0778-455888 ( $40 - $50 ) hotel
rates are usually cheaper in weekday. I choose
Singa for this trip to cut some cost since
we're letting the driver get some commission
off our gals, but it surprise me as a pretty
decent hotel. swimming pool, bathtub, fridge,
big room with a blockbuster movie channel
round the clock and a Jap AV channel. I rate
it slightly better than our usual Hotel Pelangi
at TP. It's better to book a hotel in advance
for weekend if you don't want to pay for a
4-5 stars hotel, otherwise in weekday u can
always walk in, lotsa hotels & rooms, no problem
I choose to use a driver this time becus there're
3 of us plus gals total 6, so don't think
we wanna take those 4 seater taxis that stink
! furthurmore we intend to check out a few
places, so wanna skip the usual "taxi ride
to nearby hotel, go in take a pee & wait for
taxi driver to disappear" stuff. Bionic recommend
Osman ( hp : 08127005498 ), a malay chap that
speak good english ! Overall we find his service
good, his handphone always on to standby for
us to call him should we run into any trouble,
and he is very punctual ! We arrive at B.Ampar
around 11:15am indo time and spotted him rite
away, how smart for him to put on a bright
red shirt holding a banner with my name written
clearly on it. For first timer or people who
are not familiar with Batam, i strongly suggest
u took one recommend by a friend, not just
anyone from the arrival hall. If you're in
a group, better still since you're giving
him more commission to earn, just gave him
anything and he will also accept. For my practice,
how much to tip him depends on how much we
use him & how much commission we let him earn
. If just pier-gal-hotel, hotel-pier, he will
also accept nottin for a group of 4 will already
earn him 200K in gals' commission. But if
you had him stay with you late into the nite
for disco/pubbing, be a bit generous lah.
Be warn that some driver will also get comission
from the money changer, restaurant, pub etc
he bring you too. I find most people choose
not to use one, I respect their decision.
Everyone spend their time there differently,
so long u know how to get around safely, do
what pleases you most. We're glad to have
one this time as it rain heavily while we
hop from joint to joint lookin for our gals.
TRANSPORT & GETTING AROUND
Those 4-5 stars hotel cum ferry package usually
provide free pick-up from pier with bus. If
you don't like to share a vehicle with others,
ask them to send a driver to pick u up. They
are usually in uniform and can be easily recognise,
they will also not pester you to pick a gal
or go anywhere u don't want to. But the hotel
will charge you about Rp20K for pick-up at
B.Ampar & Rp30K for Sekupang. There will be
a lot of driver trying to pick you up outside
the arrival hall, advice is don't choose from
these, chances are you'll be press to choose
a gal from joint that pay them higher commission
or get rob. Walk outside & took a taxi to
your hotel if you must. Be warn that some
3 stars or below hotel do not have their vehicle
& so might just ask a taxi off the street
to pick you up. The lau-jiao will usually
book a hotel close to their favorite joint,
so that after checking into the hotel, they
can just walk to the joint to pick up a gal
at Rp50K price lower. Or take a taxi to a
nearby hotel close to the joint, then walk
in after the taxi disappear. I've done these
too but if you're in the mood to go hunting
from joint to joint, i'll either take a personal
driver or one provided by the hotel. Getting
around is pretty easy if u don't have a personal
driver. taxis are available everywhere, walk
outta the hotel & you can flag down one anytime.
Travel anywhere within the town & to B.Ampar
pier should cost u no more than Rp10K, ask
the price first. You can also try bargaining
hard to pay 5K if this is your cup of tea.
We check into the hotel first then went for
lunch since most joint only open after 11/12noon
indo time. We also do some shopping for necessities
like condom/drinks/ciggi before we start our
hunt at around 1pm. Here's the joint we checked
out : 1) Sensasi ( i picked my gal #63 for
Rp270K, saw a few chio one around but were
all reserve, also saw a young pretty chinese
lookalike that i might wanna try on next trip,
#20 and same price, mamasan said only arrive
4 days ago so dunno service good anot ) 2)
Legenda ( very dark , difficult to choose
gal ) 3 ) Crown ( hornyman pick his gal here
at Rp260K ) 4 ) Bovo ( classy place but ave
gal is only so-so looking, the price here
all **** up, good looker goin for Rp360, one
PR goin for 800K, **** gold better ) 5 ) Titanic
( GreyK finally picked his gal #169 for Rp250K
here ) we actually took 2 hours for gals sight-seeing,
no real stunner encounter, maybe next trip
we should start like this : Orkid , Queen
, Dynasty, Alisan .... Most joint are equip
with ktv facility so u can actually ask a
gal to sit with ya, tok cock, sing a song
before u decide to book her but drinks are
not cheap. Typical price for a gal's booking
range from Rp250K - Rp280K ( with commission
). MISC INFO The Nagoya downtown area is very
compact, if I stay in an hotel there, usually
I'll walk outta the hotel to get cheap food/drinks/snacks
etc. Lotsa local eating place around, just
avoid side alley & be streetwise. A few eating
place popular with s'porean are : A1 , Oki
, Oke : like our newton circle hawker centre,
I like it here. A meal of fish,prawn,veggi
and tahu for 7 person cost only Rp145K plus
another Rp50K for drinks. Golden Prawn : a
live seafood restaurant by the river, kelong
style. Batam Kuring : indonesian restaurant,
cheap ! over dinner at A1, we discuss what
to do next, the gal as usual suggest goin
to disco like planet/ozone to pop some pills.
But we're all thinking of arranging for a
short time for tomolo morning before we went
back, later give up the idea as most gals
will only be back quite late so too rush.
Finally we went to Sensasi ktv as recommend
by my gal, there'r some singer there to kept
u entertain until later at nite where a fat
guy & a sexy gal put up a dance show, stuff
10K into an Ang-Pao & flash it, the gal will
come & lap u up before u slide it into her
crotch. Total bill for the ktv session come
up to Rp270K.
There're ticket counters inside B.Ampar &
Sekupang ferry terminals so you can always
confirm at last min, just be there 30min before
departure, there's a ferry leaving almost
every hour. Your return ticket should be able
to last 30 days and is usable at both B.Ampar
& Sekupang ( some said Waterfront city also
can ). I prefer to goto Sekupang if I'm coming
back on sunday to avoid the weekend crowd
at B.Ampar, Rp15K is enuff for you to take
a taxi from town to Sekupang.
There're many variable cost here, it all depends
on how you wanna spend your money, like other
riau islands, $200 should be enuff for most.
here's my spending for this trip with exchange
rate at $1 = Rp5K : ferry : $26 ( penguin
) hotel : $35 ( weekday rate at singa ) gal
: $54 + $20 ( Rp270K + Rp100K tips with driver
commission ) lunch : $ 4 ( Rp20K - bah kue
teh at coffeeshop ) snack : $10 ( Rp50K -
room service in hotel ) dinner: $14 ( Rp70K
- seafood at A1 ) ktv : $20 ( Rp90K + Rp10K
tips ) super : $ 5 ( Rp25K - room service
in hotel ) driver: $14 ( Rp70K - tips ) ciggi
: $ 4 ( Rp20K for 4 packs of luckies ) condom:
$ 4 ( Rp20K for a pack of 12s ) drinks: $
4 ( Rp20K - bought in supermarket )
TOTAL : $214 Posted on Mar 9, 2003, 2:08
Plenty of small Mom and Pop hotels in Nagoya
Plenty of small Mom and Pop hotels in Nagoya
(dozens), but none are expat owned. Many are
new and clean and cheap (only Sin$20-30)
Cheap rates at Melia getting harder to find
coz occupancy is high. Jansen's rate of $75
is hard to beat. Try Penguin or Channel Holidays
counter in Sing WTC 2nd floor. Posted on Mar
