Growing by Surroundings

Two things people usually like but I hate them are sport and animal. I dislike any kind of animals, including cat, dog, rabbit, fish or another pet. Not just dislike, but avoiding them. I used to scream and runaway everytime I got closed by cat or dog. But now I found my self has been changed. When a cat came, I wanted to scream but my friend did it first. When a dog was nearby, I wanted to run but my friend did it first. With their fear, I became more brave. I still don't want to touch cats, but I don't avoid them again.

The shocked one of my transformation is happened tonight. I was assembling the lego when suddenly there was a scream in my boarding house. I quickly went out to find out what happen. Tika screamed because there is a cockroach in her room. Tami came to Tika's room with a spray and broom, but the spray wasn't potent and makes the cockroach flew all over, so Tami shrieked also. I directly take over the spray and broom, PSST PSST ("miauww!"), SRETTT, BAK BAK GDEBUK......the poor cockroach passed away. I came in my room stunned, was impressed of what I just did before. WOW! Two years ago, I still lived with my nanny and she always chased cockroaches and lizards away from me (I miss her ^^). Now I did it myself, WOW amazing me!

Ohhh and I also used to hate children. I swear I didn't see any cute things in them, they just cry wanting for anything, and want to be loved always. But since my younger sister nowadays become hating them also, I precisely changed to like a child. I endure with their naughtiness, just consider it as part of their plain mind.

I remember a story from Samurai novel. Lord Yorimasa (22 years old) lived fullfilled with hatred. He hated Lord Kiyori, his father, and also himself, because he wasn't inherited the special ability of his family. The oracle said that his son will have it, so his father married him off with Lady Midori (11 years old).

Pada malam pernikahannya, Lord Yorimasa menusuk perutnya sendiri, tapi tidak terlalu dalam, karena pakaiannya tebal. Lalu Midori menarik pisau itu sampai terjengkang dan memanggil ayahnya, Lord Nao.

Lord Yorimasa: “Aku takkan tidur dengan anak kecil”.
Lord Kiyori: “Aku tahu. Aku tidak mengharapkan itu darimu”.
Kini, Yorimasa bingung. “Lalu, bagaimana kau mengharapkan seorang ahli waris?”
Lord Kiyori: ”Waktunya akan tiba. Sekarang, kau akan melindungi dan menjaganya. Pada saatnya, Midori akan menjadi dewasa dan siap menjalani perkawinan.”
Lord Yorimasa: “Konyol. Itu hanya terjadi dalam dongeng. Segera setelah sembuh, aku akan menyelesaikan apa yang sudah kumulai.”
“Kalau begitu, bunuh Midori dulu,” kata Kiyori. “Dia menyangka kau mencoba bunuh diri karena dia sangat mengecewakanmu. Rasa malunya tak tertahankan. Dia mengatakan kepada ibunya bahwa dia tak sanggup hidup jika kau mati”.
“Aku tak peduli,” Yorimasa berkata dan memejamkan matanya.
Kiyori tak berkata apa-apa. Namun, senyumnya tersungging dan terus muncul selama beberapa lama.

“Ayahku menjalani hidup penuh kebencian karena dia hanya memikirkan diri sendiri. Bisa dikatakan, ini makna sejati kebencian itu sendiri. Dia berubah karena dalam diri ibuku, dia menemukan orang yang perlu lebih diperhatikan daripada dirinya sendiri,” cerita Genji di kemudian hari.

Hehehehe ^^ keyeeenn!

So, maybe I've changed because I found others people who have more fear than I do. Actually, I still afraid of one thing...ghost et al. Many friends of mine are afraid too but they still want to watch scary movies or listen to terrified stories. One of my friend at boarding house even can see those things with her eyes (OMG!). Is there anyone who fear those mysterious things more than me?? Please!

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…

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…

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
