ticket

Do you often throw away your tickets/checks/bills? I don't. I have a special folder for saving those things. Hohoho dewasa sekali rika ini...(*tertawa genit sambil menutup mulutnya dengan kipas*)

But, do you often read your tickets/checks/bills? I don't. I just keep them, but rarely read the content of those things. Hohoho bodoh sekali rika ini...(*bletak!*)

So, how suprise I am when this morning reading the entrance ticket of Arena Ice IP (bekas kemarin malam sok2an bermain ice skating bersama nyai, dibon, ridwan n miri). On the 5th point (the last one), there are words: "Kami berhak untuk menolak memberikan pelayanan kepada pelanggan." Or in English it says, "We have the right to refuse giving services to the customers."

---zinc, eh zing---

Doesn't it weird? (atau tulisan yang kayak gini tu udah biasa ya di tiket-tiket?) What this Arena Ice IP sell are the services...not the shoes or the ices or anyTHING else, but it doesn't want to do them all the time, like the bookstore doesn't allow the customers to buy its books when it's opened. Then why is it being opened?

Except that, behind this ticket I found the words "Dapatkan FREE SOFT DRINK setiap pembelian paket apa saja di McD IP dengan menukarkan tiket ini!" Or in English it says, "Get FREE SOFT DRINK for buying any 'paket' in IP McD by exchanging this ticket!". (Hmm yeah, siapa ya yang mau makan di McD IP??) Dulu juga waktu nyampe rumah setelah nonton pensi 81 bertiga bareng adik, baru ngebaca di tiketnya kalo ternyata bisa tuker minuman dengan tiket itu. Damn, we could have got 3 free drinks, no need to buy!

So...what I want to say is (or in Indonesia it says, "hikmah di balik cerita ini adalah", tiba-tiba Aa Ditz muncul di bubble di atas kepala gua ;p) you should read carefully all the tickets/checks/bills you got, because obviously there are a lot of interesting things we can get from them. It can be anything: a weird rule like above, or something that you will regret if it is missed. Siapa tau kan di balik tiket xtrans gua ada tulisan, "Dengan menukarkan tiket ini Anda bisa menikmati perjalanan pulang pergi Bandung-Jakarta bersama Delon", oh oh!

Jeju Island in 3 Days

Jeju Island, the Hawaii of Korea, where couples usually go for honeymoon, and the place of many UNESCO Nature Heritage sites, is really beautiful and romantic. Some people say we need to spend at least 1 week to explore and experience the most of this island, but in my opinion 3 days are enough. Trust me, many places in Jeju only look good in advertisement, they're good at selling it. There are no interesting places in the North and West part of Jeju Island, so you can focus on East and South. East and South parts are amazingly naturally beautiful! Here's the itinerary I recommend.

Day-1: East of Jeju Island

Manjanggul / Manjang Cave
Spending time: 30-45 minutes
Hallasan, located in the middle of Jeju Island is the only volcanic mountain in Korea. It created several small volcanic mountains throughout Jeju Island, called Oreum in Korean. One of the biggest Oreum is Geomun Oreum, famous with its large lava tube system and designated as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site. It has few l…

Review: Homestay Cahaya Sikunir Dieng

Mencari penginapan di Dieng itu susah-susah gampang. Disana tidak ada hotel, adanya penginapan rumahan atau homestay. Beberapa turis kadang menginap di kota Wonosobo, sekitar sejam dari Dieng, demi mendapat penginapan yang bagus. Pilihan di travel apps hanya sedikit dan kurang cocok. Setelah browsing sana-sini, terutama baca review blog orang, saya hubungi beberapa homestay di Dieng baik lewat telpon maupun Whatsapp. Saat kami sudah mulai road trip Jawa Tengah tanggal 12 Desember, kami masih belum tau mau menginap dimana di Dieng tanggal 17 Desember nya. Karena waktu itu kami belum fix juga sih mau berapa malam di Dieng, 1 atau 2 malam? Kalau 2 malam, keduanya di homestay yang sama atau ganti homestay?

Akhirnya tanggal 16 Desember, sehari sebelum ke Dieng (saat itu kami di Solo), kami memutuskan untuk menginap 2 malam di Dieng. Malam pertama di Homestay Cahaya Sikunir, karena keesokan subuh nya mau sok-sokan melihat sunrise di Bukit Sikunir, dan malam kedua di Homestay Serayu. Untuk

Transportation in Jeju Island

These are some remarks regarding public transportation in Jeju.
Buses in Jeju Island accept Seoul's t-money card. You can buy and top-up it in convenience store, like GS25 and Family Mart.City buses normally charge 1000won for cash, or 950won for t-money card. If you pay by card, tap it to the machine when you aboard and when you alight. If you transit between 2 buses during a certain times, fee for the next bus can be 0won, or free.Intercity buses vary depends on the distance, usually between 1000-3000won. There's no different fee paying with cash or card. When you aboard the bus, tell the driver about your destination, he will tell you how much it is, and you have to pay there directly. If you pay by card, no need to tap it again when you get off.There are 2 bus terminals in Seogwipo city. The main bus terminal is in the south-east of downtown, near the Jeongbang Waterfall, which is also the old one. The second one is to the right of the E-mart in front of the World Cup Stad…
