Quick Escapade to Stone Garden and Goa Pawon, Padalarang

"Happiness comes when you 
believe in what you are doing, 
know what you are doing, 
and love what you are doing."



Hey again! This trip was never plan before so it’s so sudden trip, just confirmed the day before. It's been a while since we had trip together, I think the last time is Karimun Jawa. Since me and 2 others friends could make it this time so we registered and just pick a place that we haven’t been there before also the slot that still available. We found this one, Stone Garden & Goa Pawon, Padalarang for Day Trip on National Holiday, on the 11th of May 2017, cost Rp185,000/pax but because we registered for 3 persons, so we only need to pay Rp179,000/pax.

Woke up in early morning because we need to gather at Meeting Point Plaza Semanggi at 6.30 AM, but I left my house around 6.30 AM, and arrived in 30 minutes later. It’s passed from the schedule and we left there around 7.30-ish AM. Arrive in the afternoon and basically we only have 2 destination for today.

Thailand [COLDPLAY] 5/5 : What to see in Medan in 6 hours?

"Once a year, go someplace 
you've never been before."

We asked the hotel security to get us taxi in that morning and ask him to telling him that we just want to take the regular way not the toll in order to avoiding paying toll fees, haha.

The driver was agreed even he looked us like saying 'ohh poor girls, couldn't afford to pay the toll fees' but well I don't care. It's still early morning so I believe Bangkok will be same like Jakarta, no traffic on that morning and it's right, maybe took about 30 - 45 minutes, heading to Don Mueang Airport and fly to Medan with Air Asia at 8.15 AM.

Arrived in Kuala Namu Airport and wow the airport is really nice, first time here since the last time in Medan I landed at Polonia Airport. We still have time to explore in Medan before catch our flight at 6.40 PM but turned out delay to 7.45 PM and another delay to 8.20 PM using Sriwijaya Air, 3rd delay just found out later on in the afternoon.

For me personally, I was so excited to be back to Bangkok. This country had special unforgettable memory for me, it was my first country to travel overseas and first time watching concert which such a great concert I ever watched, TVXQ (Dong Bang Shin Ki/DBSK) concert. We left around 7 AM and taking subway transit with BTS to Saphan Taksin BTS, from there we walked to Central Pier to take public boat 15 Baht, pay inside the boat, take the orange flag one and alight at Than Tien Pier (N8)

Thailand [COLDPLAY] 3/5 : Explore "The Beach" Maya Bay at Phi Phi Island

Work
Save
TRAVEL
Repeat.


Thursday, 6 April 2017
The agent told us to gather at meeting point 7/11 near the Phi Phi Pier at 6 AM, so we checked out earlier to go there. We put our bag to the agent and had breakfast like coffee or tea and bread. We waited until 6.30 AM then off to our speedboat, there were around 12 persons inside the boat, we were the only Indonesian there. The journey felt bumpy and if you have seasick, hmm maybe this is not a good choice for you. Felt so happy because the speedboat was really nice, heading to our first destination, Loh Maya Bay, on this morning exploring Koh Phi Phi Le, the journey will take about half an hour.

Thailand [COLDPLAY] 2/5 : Phuket and Beautiful Lookout at Phi Phi Island

"Take a good look at God's wonders - 
they will take your breath away"
- Psalm 66 : 5


Wednesday, 5 April 2017
Tried to sleep for few hours and woke up in early morning, our flight to Phuket is at 8.20 AM, it took almost 2 hours, kinda afraid to fly on that condition and thinking that I still have 4 flights are just made me terrified. Okay, I shouldn't focus on that damn hurt left ear. I tried to cover my left ear with tissue during the flight, eating gums, yawning, drinking water and do whatever I found in Google. Yay, I can handle this flight and the flight was smooth, the pilot doing his job very good, I didn't feel the sudden changing pressure really bad like I had on my first flight.

Thailand [COLDPLAY] 1/5 : Transit, Wander and Stay Overnight at Changi Airport

"And if we've only got this life
In this adventure, oh, then I want to share it with you"
-Coldplay, Adventure of a Lifetime



This trip begin when I heard there will be Coldplay concert in some Asian countries and I just thought maybe I could see one of them, well Coldplay not really my favorites but I love some of their songs. In addition, I can have another holiday which is made me more excited. I planned to see the one in Singapore but it turned out the tickets there were very hard to get, so, move to the next country which is Thailand and yay we got the tickets! I still have another bucket list in Thailand which is Phuket. I've been curious with this city long time ago and remembered the time when I booked already in 2012 but I didn't fly at that time and flew to South Korea instead.

And feel so happy because I can go this time. It was such a short time with some cities yet many flights to catch up, fighting! I told my friend that I really want to go to Phuket and it's okay if she doesn't want to join and it's okay for me to go alone but we ended up going there together, yay! It's gonna be short trip yet many flight and destinations, super duper tired but well it's holiday! would be fun no matter what :)

What to do for One Day Trip at Jakarta with a Low Budget?

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
- Lao Tzu

Never thought to write down things to do where I lived in, so I think maybe I should start one. It happened when I hosted these 2 girls (bioonthego and thegoin) from Canada through CouchSurfing few weeks ago. I had day off since weekend and I have nothing to do so I just accompanied them to explore Jakarta.

In this blogpost I want to share about what to do in a day at Jakarta based on my experience recently of course with low budget.


Usually for breakfast there are plenty Indonesian food to try especially near my house, and if we don't have much time to go somewhere to buy some then toast with the jam or oatmeal will be enough. Today we have Lontong Sayur for breakfast, What is it? it's rice cake served with vegetables, tofu and boiled in coconut milk soup with krupuk. For me personally, to have this kind of Lontong Sayur for breakfast is bit too much since it makes me so full for half day!:D The Cost? ohh it's so cheap around my neighborhood Rp5,000/portion, depend on the neighborhood though.
