When in ROME, the travel point and its surrounding part1


Something that might come up first thing in mind about rome is oldtown full of romance.. yeah.. I also fall in love with Rome since I love history, man, love, and antique. Last time I knew, I found my love over there ..

Anyway, in this chapter, I just want to show the inside of rome and its point of interest that you have known before. In other chapter I will dig more about its church and history.

I believe you know trevi fountain. A fountain in the middle of rome. Lots people come here and throw coins hope that he/she will come back to rome or perhaps they hope something else. Me, just wished to comeback and get lots good pics.. and share it with you.

Pisa tower in the other hand is famous with the leaning tower.. actually its a catholic church but nowadays it become tourism point with lots of market nearby will makes you stay and shop if you come by yourself.

But my wish if I come back there juat 1 thing, sit in the outdoor cafe and see the view…

Bali, the resort, museum and its food


Talking about BALI… hmmmm, for us Indonesian, bali is known with its resort, food, shopping. Ubud for its museum, and KUTA for crowded….

Today,  i would like to tell you about Bali for its resort, museum and food and the most important is the best picture i got.

Food… talking about food will make you feel HUNGRY…. Bali best food is BABI GULING or you can say it Roasted pig. with its crispy skin, pig blood, chilly.. haha, you might feel it so strange, but once you try it, it would make you hunger for a second time. Babi Guling can be found any places in Bali, but some people said Bu Oka – ubud is the best, however, when I try it some place else, it also nice and make me fuuullll….

IMG_8659 IMG_8661In the afternoon, we have a recommended restaurant in Lovina, named Le Jenzen.. and i had a wonderful experience with my crab. You will never imagine to eat crab meat as similar as drinking it.. the soft of this texture will melt when it comes to your mouth. Should try it if you go to Lovina> Look at this picture…  are you hungry yet???

??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????MUSEUM, .. usually.. my hubby doesnt want to see the Museum, but since we were in UBUD, and Ubud is has the most famous art gallery & its artist, we come to 1 museum, Antonio Blanco. Blanco art was very well known , so that Michael Jackson himself has been to his gallery. I dont know whether it was in Ubud – Indo or elsewhere.

One thing i can summarize about Blanco art. It was exploring the woman’s beauty from top to toe.. and its so obvious you can see it in his painting. Almost all of the painting. The gallery gate was similar with a Statue… as it is shown in my pic. too bad we cannot picture his painting… but i took his workshop pics… lets take a look

??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Finally the resort….

Me and my husband, actually goto Bali for a very relaxation vacation… therefore we choose a middle level hotel.. not to expensive but not to cheap either. the accomodation in Ubud is the one we love so much, named Beji Ubud. There are 5 different kind of pool that you can try it when you stayed there with different view. I just love a small pool in front of my cottage door. The cottage is so large and have a large bathroom as well. And it cost me around 800,000 IDR.. .for that… you can see my pics and rate it for yourself…

??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????So, did my picture increase your curiosity about BALI.. come and see.. and have the same experience as ME…. do not hesitate to ask me for anything i know about my traveling….

Day 3b : Ancient Candi @ Pemraksan River, Ubud


After a galon of fresh air in Bedugul, we travel down to Ubud. The silent day was changed when we entered Ubud area. Crowded, lots of people, small street with lots of cars, lots of tourist, lots of food WOW… yummmm 😛 lots of shopping area, cafe, baliness dance,  ayayayaaaa
However, we just passed the area that we already familiar with, so we travel around 20-25 minutes to Tapaksiring. Then with a small sign, we park to a parking spot and walk to the ancient temple … 360 step below the parking surface.. At first, the step would not hard to follow since it was going down. side by side along the step, the villager open a souvenir shop with a great variant of things.

at the end of the step, we were surrounded with a big wall , and a plate of water to purify our soul. everybody should pour the water in our head, since it was the tradition, we just do the same although for us, we did not believe such things but we should be as where we are, right.

When entering the gate.. OWOWOW>.. it so magnificent … magical.. it was so breathtaking view when you see two great temple crafted in the big rock and divide by river, and the other side, it was a pura with lots of hole in the rock for people want to pray silently. You can see the picture of this place below….

After taking lots of pics, we went up.. ow ow.. i almost passed out, its harder than it looks. seems like just 300 step, but it takes all my energy out. WOW… i felt so success when i come back to the parking lot even my breath almost out. hahahaa…..

??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

Lovina from dawn to Sunset (Day 2 at Bali)


Once i heard that Lovina has a Dolphin, spontaneously it state in my agenda if i have another opportunity to go to Bali. Now, when i come to Lovina, darn… it was a very quite neighborhood… but still the dolphins already called my name….

When we arrived at the hotel, we asked the dolphin watching, it cost around Rp 100.000,- however since i already know the price from tripadvisor, so I go to the beach and ask the boat man there, and got Rp 60.000/ pax. WHAT a differences…..!!

We woke up at 6.00 and went to the sea… at first we didnt see many boats beside us. but when the sun comes, we counted around 20-25. And it was a low season….. Our boatman (nyoman – 0813 3840 5724) is very smart, he didn’t try to scare the dolphin so many times we found the dolphin swam beside our boat. After about 30 mins, we went back to the shore, the water was so clear so that we can see below the water.. i wish i have time for snorkling. .many colorful fish that you could find there.

Then,  we finished the day by a 2,5 hour spa.. and watching the sunset in Lovina beach… how romantic.. and these are the picture….

Playing with Jamu Museum – Semarang


I guess everyone will have a BIG question mark about the title. Dont worry, it’s actually about a museum in central java about jamu. Jamu is a traditional drink that makes our body become better, such as from tired, from flu and lots of other examples. Made from leaves, roots , seems like chinese medicine.

Anyway, this museum is about the biggest jamu industry in Semarang, Nyonya Meneer, KM3 outside the Semarang. Although the museum is quite small, but the things there will bring us back to the old times. But i was told if you bring about 20 people, you could see the lab and getting in deepth with jamu industry.

What i mention before, is.. I try to edit those pics using my new program… How about this

The harbour city of central Java – Semarang City(1)


Semarang is one of the big city in Central Java, the place where the most of Chinese people came from the far away to Indonesia. Semarang also was the trading place of western people.

I present you the uniqueness of Semarang from its building, the water DAM, the Chinese building. Actually, if you like to photo hunt in Semarang, there would be lots of pictures you could produce.

There picture, i shoot during my short holiday in central Java, but i hope i could give you a simple glimpse about Semarang.

If you are Buddhist, or Kong Hu Chu, you might have lots of quite interesting places in here, because the Klenteng SamPo Kong was famous in Indonesia.
