Living much as their forefathers did, the quietly their days and years upon the waves of the surrounding seas.
Like a masterful painting brought to life, Busung’s stilted settlements offer sights that calm the heart and soothe the soul. A state of mind that is a daily experience for the local fishermen, who go about their lives with a slow but determined pace, ready to go gracefully receive whatever the sea bestows upon them. Even as the world outside rambles on in its own hectic way, life here sails on with its own tranquil rhythm that is as timeless as the waves.
Used to the influx of the new and the foreign since it became a center of political power some five centuries ago, Bintan continues to confidently mix the modern with the traditional.
Nowhere on the island of Bintan is the mix of the modern and the traditional more obvious than in Lobam, which has over a relatively short span of time opened itself up to become a thriving center of industry.
Large scale factories representing new-age industries like computer electronics now share the landscape with surrounding villages still steeped in Riau tradition. But the relationship is not an awkward one as of newly acquainted strangers, rather it takes the shape of a comfortable friendship between understanding neighbors who complement each other in a genuine symbiosis.
After all, who is to say the hum of modern machinery must of necessity jar the titillating notes of the gemilang?
Like strange partners joined in the harmony of a well-choreographed dance, modern industry chugs on cheerfully to the relaxed beat of small town life.
