Feb 10th, 2007: The Day Before Codefest

At noon, Simon-san, Dewi-san, Roni-san, Ronny-san and I (Aqsa-san and Arya-san had gone to Bali) were briefed by Mrs Hira who suddenly said easily, "...the consumption for codefest participants haven't been prepared yet..." WHAT?! We all were surprised. We thought she had already arranged it. Please (deh) Ma'am, couldn't you tell us latter?
Thus made me spend all day googling delicious foods in Bandung for 30-40 people for 5 times eating, which had a delivery service, and didn't make the japaneses have stomachache. Hff!

Around 9pm, after hanging out in BIP for a while (actually I went there to buy snacks for the codefest participants, but Simon-san bought a black t-shirt, 'lu keren lah, mon!' :p), Simon-san, Roni-san and I were back to campus. We found Ronny-san still doing some design stuffs (good work, rondut!) and Dewi-san had already went home. Suddenly Veriyanta-san called Roni-san telling that he and the japaneses had already reached Pasteur. Woooooou panic, panic! Roni-san and I ran directly to Wisma Dago Hotel...we hadn't prepared anything! FYI, Wisma Dago Hotel is a very-not-international hotel (but it's the closest inn to ITB). Because there isn't minibar, we took the initiative to buy snacks and put them in each japaneses' room. But it was late. When we arrived at Wisma Dago Hotel, the cars entered the yard.

After hearing a short speech by Roni-san, the japaneses (there are 7 persons, I still didn't memorize their name at that time) entered their room. Here is the most embarrassing moment, Simon-san and I exactly became a servant! We brought snacks (on the small tray) to each room.

Knock knock!
The japanese opened the door. He had already took off his clothes (not all, unfortunately) and was surprised to see me, "Ups, sorry!"
I said "It's OK!" and grinned.

Knock knock!
The japanese opened the door. We gave the foods and turned back quietly. But suddenly he said something peculiar, "seramat merem!"
Ha?! Was he learning to talk or what??

Knock knock!
The japanese opened the door, "Is there any internet service?"

Obviously there were unoccupied rooms at the hotel, so we spent the night there.

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…
