WELCOME TO JABBAT
DEDICATED TO TRAVEL - PHOTOGRAPHY - WILDLIFE & LITERATURE
JABBAT AND US
Joan, a qualified accountant and Brian, a lecturer in Computer Finance and IT met online in December 2000 and married in Joan's home country of Singapore in 2001. Our wedding gift from Joan's parents was a round the world trip that further fueled our love of travel and wildlife. In 2003 we decided to open a business of our own and after searching far and wide, settled on purchasing a retail electrical and computer business in Battle UK. Hence the name of the website: Joan and Brian at Battle. The business was good enough to afford us a couple of holidays per year. Joan's family home in Singapore provided a base for exploring South East Asia. Joan has always had an interest in writing and two of her plays were performed in Singapore. Her first full length novel "Valley Of The Gods" was completed in early 2004 and is still available on Amazon.
In 2016 we retired and now have more time to follow our hobbies and interests - gardening, writing, amateur photography, wildlife and travel. Joan contributes regular articles to "The Overseas Singaporean" and her play "100% of Nothing is Nothing" has appeared all over the UK with sell-out performances in London.
Over the years we have visited some wonderful places. If you need any info or wish to comment on anything in the site please use the feedback page.
