Refreshing My 2008

Last year I wrote that I change my mind from "someday I will be happy" into "I'm living happily starting now". But it's hard. I'm not saying that I'm not happy, but I (and my closed friends) realize that me sighing all year. One problem had finished, then came other ones I babbled about. It seems that I got a thousand reasons to be unhappy.

Yes, thesis time had passed in the beginning of this year, it's a moment when I feel so free. Then job seeking moment really really made me crazy. I felt depressed and being in the lowest situation. I was embarrassed with my life, didn't dare to come out gathering with some friends. Well lucky that time had gone, at the end of this year I got a job I like, it's a moment when I feel so relieved. Those are not the only problems of my life. Trust me, there are many, and complicated. Even in this time, when I've already been in Singapore, when I'm writing this bullshit posting, I still feel unhappy in someways.

Anyhooo, my traveling life starts here! Yez, who's not dreaming of traveling around the world, huh?! Everyone's drooling it. For next year, I've already spotted some leave times and planned to go some places in Southeast Asia. Amen! Being independent and living far from parents, it's so dream-comes-true. I want to bring more reality in my life, and less imagination and online time.

But it leads me to other fantasy (hope not the dirty one), him. LDR and HBL is very irritating T.T. Anyway, he helped me a lot to bring smile in my life along my dark times on this year: final year stressing, graduating, job hunting, self seeking... I've been through those things with him. Aaargh why suddenly my iTunes playing Depapepe *garuk-garuk tembok* (that and D'Cinnamons always remind me of him). Some friends think that these fucking acnes in my face along this year is because of my hormonal reaction of this first love relationship. Ha-ha, people around me are getting married but my hormonal is just starting to react, very mature! But yeah I'm not totally agree with this one, I still believe the acnes come from stress.

Owkey then, I want to try again next year, living happily no matter what. Sometimes I think I never let my self happy. Like when good news comes, I'm searching for another reason to be worried about. Because, life is up and down right?! I'm afraid this is my up time and soon I will be down again. That's why my mind keeps telling me, "this is not your happy time, there's another moment you will be happier, just hang on don't be happy right now okay, there's still another one coming." Then when will I be happy?

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…
