Walking Disaster

This has been a hard week for me...running all the way, hiding from the world, blaming on myself, grumbling all day, crying out loud. Until at the end of the week, I was pulled out from this black hole.

Today a friend 'poked' me harshly, make me realize that the problem is me. I am the one who made myself failed. I wasn't disciplined. I didn't set up the schedule. I ran away from bug/error. I just didn't have any intention or willing to finish my own thesis.

Today I went home, with parents welcomed my arrival nicely. Brother offered his help for my thesis. Father consulted me for almost 2 hours, trying to give some advices.
  1. "Do you need extra money for paying someone to make your program?" -->'re very wise, Dad!
  2. "Do you need me or your mom to come to Bandung to talk with your teacher about your problem or something?" --> Err...what??! No, thanks!
  3. "I know you have had that mobile internet with XL-Centrin, but if you need the faster one like Wimode, just tell me, Ok?!" --> Err...why you don't say that before I registered this Centrin crap??!
  4. "If you find a problem, don't be shy to ask your teacher or some friends. Actually your guy friends, they must be willing to help a girl." --> Err...does my dad ask me to be a bitch, seduce my guy friends??!
  5. "You have to pray to God a lot. Just believe in God! Don't believe anything from Harry Potter's stories! There's no magic in this world, you have to fight with your own power" --> Err...Harry Potter is rock, Dad! You should read.

With consulting session from my parents and pat from my friend, I was rethinking of what I've done. Yes, I've been gone for so long. It's time to get back. But since the deadline is just like...err 1 week later...I think it's too late to save me.


  1. As one of your friend, I hope for the best for you. Ganbatte Rika! Just keep fighting, insyaAllah, there will be a way.. amin... we're supporting you!

  2. Wew thank you Arya :D
    Btw, where are yooouuuuu?!

  3. 'Cause you are not alone
    I’m always there with you
    And we’ll get lost together
    'Til the light comes pouring through
    When you feel like you’re done
    And the darkness has won
    Babe you’re not lost

    When your world’s crashing down
    And you can’t bear the thought
    I said babe you’re not lost..

    Lost - Michael Buble

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…
