From Masjid Raya, I was fastened my step  through Engku Putri squared, I wanted to get to this place I want to go, I didn’t pay more attention to the crowded people were jogging and doing exercise around me at that time. High building mostly in orange colour  stood in front me was my destination that morning. That building was seen high and higher when I closed to it. After walking about 10 minutes, I finally   arrived there. Ya, Harris Hotel Batam center, most strategic and well known Hotel in Batam. I had arrived earlier than others because I didn’t want make bad reputation for my new Group, Riau Islands province Blogger than I called Blogger kepri  with my lateness. As we knew we were invited by Harris Hotel staff to attend Media and Blogger Gathering last week, on Sunday may 15th 2016.

I introduced myself as a member of Blogger Kepri who got invitation this morning. I had greeted by one of Harris Hotel staff with his nice smile, he led me to the venue where the Gathering will be conducted, then I came in walk pass the Hotel Lobby. There were three girls and one boy were there, I thought they were from Media.

After met the Hotel representatives Hanna, Nana, Mrs Ripka and mr Hamdani I sat in Lobby waited for other friend’s arrival. 10 minutes later mr Bams, mr Assad and mrs Eka.D arrived followed by the others. We entered the Smiley room, then mrs Ripka Sembiring as Director of sales and marketing asked us to take a breakfast.

For dessert, this hotel served various fruits and pudding, complete with beverage such as coffee, tea, milk and of course mineral water served on each our table in side. It was so delicious!

“Here the Breakfasts are special, how about lunch, I think may be it more special, hehe?” I guessed.
This gathering would deliver with relax and fun in both Harris, Harris Batam Center and Harris Resort Marina. It was true after presentation session who delivered by Harris Hotel staff and Government representatives that presented by mr Frengki on behalf to Batam tourism department ended. The Program continued with exercise or we could say it was funny dancing, led by Hanna and Nana as Marcom of this Hotel. We felt weak and sleepy but after dancing, we  became fresher, relax and more happier.
