I went to the Kueh Lapis bakery that the tour brought us. Tried the various flavours but found that they were nothing fantastic. In fact they were a little dry and not that tasty, even the full butter one was not rich enough. So I did not bother to order.
in the evening, after I checked into the hotel, i went to BCS Mall to do some shopping. Came across Layers, and tried some of the sample. They were fantastic, and much more tasty than those I have tried at the previous bakery. It was also cheaper. The original with rempah was 120,000 and the full butter one was 160,000. I couldn't decide which one to buy and eventually decided on the full butter one. No regret, except maybe I should also get the rempah one.
The Lady in the shop, Li Li was very friendly. She even introduced a taxi driver to me. Very safe, reliable and prompt guy, and he charges very reasonably. Much cheaper than I expected. Only downside is that his car is quite beat-up. But aircon still working fine, and trip were comfortable. So if you are there, you can ask her for the contact, or you can pm me if you like.
I will definitely go back to buy the Kueh Lapis from Layers again whenever I go back to Batam.
