Karimun, Kepulauan Riau #1

I have an obsession. After Ramadhan, i will climb Jantan Mountain (Gunung Jantan). With only 478 meters high, this mountain more suitable to be called a hill than a mountain. So, today i went to observed. This is what i got :

Top view Tanjung Balai Karimun

What i realized, from TOP view, Tanjung Balai Karimun little bit different with common coastal cities in Indonesia. You can see temple there. I believed that one belong to Konghucu society (i will make sure it later 🙂 ). Yes, this city is product from two mainstream culture : chinese and malay.

After 30 minutes driving, i stopped. I saw very familiar building. Familiar?? yes, i saw it many times in the IP Man movie ;p. To be honest, when i entered the meeting room, i wondering, are they do the same thing as in the movie?. You know, in the movie, there are scene that IP man invited by Hung Chun-nam in this similar room to prove that he worth to open martial arts school. Watcha!!
