Travel Indonesia Haiku - Batam Nagoya Shopping Complex


Nagoya Shopping Complex
osama bin laden caught
on an oil canvas

Nagoya Shopping Complex
my nose flutters between
fake and genuine fragrances

There was this large oil painting of Osama bin Laden for sale at Nagoya Shopping Complex, the most popular shopping haven at Batam. Here you can find anything from artificial designer fragrances, clothes and shoes to the real ones. One has to be really careful in choosing those branded goods to make sure they are worth the money.
I drank designer coffee at Godiva Bistro, as it is almost like Starbucks or Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf which have yet to make their presence felt here.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
