I live in Surabaya, finishing my degree in 2000 and has been working for about 6 different area of business, mostly in hospitality Industry. Meeting lots of people increase my collection of story of people's life... however, to improve my writing skills.. and your opinion about life, it will be appreciated if you put some comments on my opinions...

Fooled by the Kakekbodo waterfall 


Well, if you asked why I said fooled, it was because i know Kakekbodo, and I know usually the location of waterfall would be quite far from the enterance. At first, when I decided to enter, my companion said … naah, it wont be far, therefore I agreed to enter since even though I know the place, but I never have entered this location.

Being a city girl meanibg, I do not like hiking and tracking….  well, let me continue with my story. I began the walk with straight walk, … well seemed okay… lets go…

After passing the swimming pool, the path going up… and I already begin to complain… but saving my breath to go up. After climb to some stairs, my breath began quite hard…. at some points i need to rest… good that they also provide some places to enjoy the mountain breeze.. 

After resting for a while, i began to walk again. Not far from there, you might find the Kakek bodo tomb. They said that he was guiding the Waterfall until he died, and buried near to the waterfall. The path is still going up, until i heard the sound of water and these are what I see before seing the waterfall

The waterfall is hiding behind the rock and trees,…. my companion said when I keep comokaining why I cannot see the waterfall. Then after taking few steps up, then finally i feel amazed and still until now, to see the jewel behind this mountain

I took the opportunity to praise God by staying thete around 15 minutes, feel the sound, the air, the breeze ….. 

well, if you like nature, this would be good to see when you near Surabaya. It only take 1 hour drive and around 15 mins walk to the waterfall


I lobe the ambience of KEDIRI


somehow, for a catholic like me, if i state aboit Kediri, people will say that i am going for pilgrimate in Poh Sarang… well thata correct, since I love to pray in that groto, it reminded me to Lourdes, France

Poh Sarang nowadays is not only the place for catholics only, I saw lots of people, from other religious believer for taking pictures only. Poh Sarang has very unique architecture as well as the landscape and ambience. That place will make you stay longer just to enjoy the breeze of the air and the sound of bamboo bumping each other

Poh Sarang church with the unique architecture
The Groto of Maria

however,… Kediri ia not only this…. for a day travel from Surabaya, I tried to enjoy Kediri and with Waze apps, try to drive up to Gunung Willis, about 7 kilos to find one cafe shown in the IG , named WOW cafe.. I found it evwnthough my small car almost cannot climb to it, but you know… the beauty of having small car… i went to the small road which actually only for the villager, and found this

The scenery of Kediri.. otw to Willis mountain

Finally at around 11, we found the WOW cafe, well.. it was not as I expected, they just provided simple food. Since we are starving to death, I took the nasi goreng and bakso for my spouse. But, above all….. I love to take a very deep breath to fill my lung with fresh air that i cannot find in the city.

Look at the view below, its the view I saw fron WOW cafe. they have 3 stories down, and some of “spot” for those who likes to sit in the wood floor .. called “lesehan” in Indo


Then, because the driver who is my husband was not feel well, we have to stop the voyage and head back to Surabaya, but still the view is extraordinary

Kediri is surrounded by many mountains, therefore, you can find some mountains to hike and find the view that would be more amazing that what i share with you.

Dont forget to visit the waterfall…. and mountain top

Yogyakarta – Ancient, Culture


Well, for me .. talking about Indonesia will not end for a year, since the country, the culture ,,…. all is so beautiful.

Now, im talking about Yogyakarta, well even expatriates already know the beauty of Borobudur… but for my myself, Borobudur has lots of unrevealed secret yet  being discovered. Those Why-s are still ringing in my ear,  such as why that statue is different from other, why the ancient knows how to make the  gutter around the temple, etc.

While thinking, i tried to capture those moments …. and you might agree with me, to see how beautiful the Borobudur is

im so lucky when  i met the Fashion Parade in the Malioboro street, to see lots of culture and new fashion idea mixed….

 

 

Still remember as well inside my head, the local Javanese who even they are old, but with the smile in her face, she work in the  rice field . The sun stroke her small body, but she still working tirelessly. Those men also served for the king, even they are paid low, but they are so loyal, since they believe that the King also taking care of them

 

 

Museum Angkut – BATU, Malang


Another entertainment while you are in Batu, Malang … named Museum Angkut. Angkut itself named from Transport, therefore in this museum, you can see many choices of transportation. If you love doing selfie, wifie or whatever you call it now… its the best place for doing so..

Because i dont like autocar, so the first part was bored me . The museum has many parts, such as : Cars showcase, Bicycle, Plane.

The second part throw lots of interesting part for me to take some pictures. Many scene from Old Indonesia as well as the other country such as England, France, Germany, US and many more

Last part is the Floating Market, which adopted from some of Pasar Apung (Floating Market) in banjarmasin – Kalimantan ( i never been there,.. hick)

so… what are you waiting for… go there, and finish your adventures with tons of pictures

O, yah.. you might need to pay for camera fee, and you cannot bring food or drink because they already provide it in their cafe and pasar apung … and this museum angkut is open at 12:00 , so dont forget to bring your hat, because it would be soo hot there

 

Best view from Batu – Malang


Some of you might not know about if there is Paralayang in East Java. There is…

So if you are a traveler, looking for some excitement like Paralayang, i just found one in Batu, Malang – East Java… near to Surabaya. Well, actually i also find it through another site.

You might go there using the car that can go up the hill, since some of the road might be slippery if you go there by sedan. It took around 15 mins i suppose from  Batu alun alun to go up the hill, but once you climb up a bit,.. you might find a very breathtaking view that hm probably you might never see…

While you are up, you can do Paralayang or see the view inside the Rumah Kayu, a house that is build attached to the hill

Well, i didnt go to the omah kayu since my mom and dad who are the elderly might not climb up and down easily like us (or me), however, i showed you the pics of Paralayang and Omah Kayu site so you can experiences what i saw there.

Do you know that ZOO is stress releasing?


One of you is strees now? dont know which way to go? no money to go  somewhere relaxing. I was the same situation as you before… Then, i think.. how about looking at the animal, it would be budgeted vacation and relaxing as well, since lots of animals do stupid things … like human do 🙂 (agree??)

Okay, then one day i decided with my husband to go to Prigen – Taman safari 2 _ Indonesia .  We were thinking. oh ya its just another safari with cars and we looked the animal while we were inside the car… But when i was there, i was amazed with all the animal i rarely see..  and so relaxing to see them act one to each other…

We have relax time that we enjoyed riding car, walk, talk and see the animal, fresh and breeze cold air, and most of all… the new experiences with the animal that we rarely to see…

Let the picture says itself.. okay..
