The front garden area at Nongsa ......

Oh my ..... the last time I blogged was October 7 !!!!

I thought being "a lady of alternate pursuits" was going to give me more time to do things, 'tis not the case at all.

Well since I last wrote we have been over to Nongsa again...... and for those that have just 'tuned in', Nongsa is a village on the Island of Batam....which is part of Indonesia!
Batam is 35 mins by ferry from the east coast of Singapore.

You can take a ferry from Harborfront to Batam Centre or a ferry from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal to Nongsapura, which is what we do. The ferry costs $43.00 return and runs just about every hour.

We have purchased a Villa over at Nongsa Village (as seen in an earlier post) and for the past three months it has gone thru some pretty extensive renovations. An amazing amount of work in a short period of time. But it is all finished now, except for a few small touch up bits and pieces that need to be completed.

This photo shows what the path looked like in June and then the big difference in September:

and our buggy sits on the pathway at the front.....!!!!

The garden at the front looks wonderful as seen in the following images:

next posting will have images of inside.......
