It's almost the end of our trip, huhu, bit sad if I remember to go back to reality, haha, this morning we will go to Tanarara Hill, another hill to check while at Sumba. Get ready to go and when arrived there. Wow, it's another beauty of Sumba that been offered to us. Such a different side of Sumba Island yet still beautiful. We enjoyed the view, taking pictures, going crazy on that hill since nobody is there but us.

Sakura at Sumba Island, Indonesia
Day 4 - Thursday, 14 October 2018

Our first destination for today is Tanggedu Waterfall at East Sumba, it was such a long way to arrive to Tanggedu Waterfall, the view was spectacular. It's like having a road trip where on your left and right side were just savanna or I can say a little wild savanna since you will spotted a lot of wild animals live freely. Along the way we stopped at few points to take pictures since the view is really nice and totally different with Indonesia that we used to see.

In the middle of savanna, we spotted Konjil Tree (Konjil Flowers) which looks like Sakura or Cherry Blossoms and that was soooo beautiful that made us stop and take pictures with that tree. The pinkish color made the tree looks so pretty.

Sumba 2/4 - Rumah Budaya, Prai Ijing Village, Lapopu Waterfall and Wairinding Hill

"Those who are destined to meet will eventually do so."
- Doctors, Korean Drama

Beautiful view at Wairinding Hill
Day 3 - Saturday, 13 October 2018

We stayed already at Rumah Budaya and this Rumah Budaya is actually part of itinerary because they have museum to learn some of Sumba's cultures. There are 2 building for the museum but at that time there was only one museum that opened. 

The guide of the museum telling us some stories of Sumba Cultures, he said most of Sumba's people still uphold the Animism belief or they call it Marapu. For the traditional house, you can see if the house has an unique shape like they have high roof. It's separate from 3 parts, lower part for animals, middle part for human and higher part for the harvest.

'Azure Window' at Sumba Island, Bwana Beach :D
I still have my annual leaves in 2018 like 8 days so I decided to join my friends to Sumba Island, we join open trip and the trip itself took 5 days 4 nights. Sumba Island is part of East Nusa Tenggara (NTT-Nusa Tenggara Timur) province in Indonesia. It's my first time exploring East Indonesia, the east that I ever been maybe Makassar. This time trip to Sumba Island from Thursday 11th - Tuesday 16th of October, 2018 (6D/5N). Start from Tambolaka Airport and end up at Waingapu Airport so from West Sumba to East Sumba, transit at Bali. At first I was a bit worry because there were earthquake at Lombok (next to Bali), and the aftershock were happened so many times like hundred times, and there were also earthquake and also Tsunami at Palu (Center Sulawesi). And few days before we go to Sumba, there were earthquake near Sumba so I have my doubt to continue this journey or not, I tried to not overthink that and keep going.

Day 1 - Thursday, 11 October 2018

We decided to go earlier than schedule, the flight from Jakarta to Bali (transit) then to Sumba Island, Tambolaka Airport. My flight was at 7.45 AM from Jakarta (CGK) to Denpasar, Bali (DPS) about 2 hours then at 12.50 fly to Waikabubak, Sumba Island at Tambolaka Airport (TMC) flight took an hour and 10 minutes. The airplanes from DPS was small and it was my first time using Garuda Indonesia in small version, anyway we took Garuda Indonesia, I bought the flight for Rp 1,031,500 such a good deal.

Taiwan 7/7 - Huashan 1914 Creative Park, Last Day at Taiwan

"Dare to live the life you're always wanted"

at Huashan 1914 Creative Park
Day 8 - Friday, 1 Jun 2018

First thing that I did in the morning was another shopping haha, this time I went to Carrefour to buy some snacks etc. It's pretty heavy, apparently in Taipei, you need to pay for the plastic bag but you can use the recycle box to place your items, they provide the box with different size. This Carrefour is open 24 hours. My trip almost ended, some friends of mine asking me why would I do in Taiwan for almost a week, actually I bought the ticket without thinking how many days should I spend in Taiwan haha but I am happy to stay a week here since no rushing.

Taiwan 6/7 - Cool Area at Danshui and Elephant Mountain, Perfect Place to See Taipei 101

"Travel!!
Before you run out of time"

from Elephant Mountain, too beautiful!
Day 7 - Thursday, 31 May 2018


Danshui (Tamsui) is on my list for today, leaving ny hostel and I am heading to thay way, I read we only need to take subway and get off on the last station, actually Danshui located outside of Taipei, north Taiwan but it's easy accessible by subway. 

Heading to Danshui by myself and I was stopped by Chiate, it's like the one and only shop at Taiwan, the famous pineapple cookies and green onion as well. I saw lot of people buy this cookies so I just want to try, they don't open branch. Nanjing Sanmin is the closest subway station, one you get off, you only need to walk about 100-200 meters.
