Boardgaming Cafe

Friday morning, the Outlook Calendar reminded the ISI Fun agenda on 12 - 4 pm. It is my boss and Renuka who managed this fun time, while the rest: "do you know what actually we are going to do?" Until then we reached the place: Mind Cafe, a boardgaming cafe. Uwooooh I was like being a child back then, like when my parents took me to a playground, I was so happy and excited, I wanted to jump around couldn't wait to play. Look at those games!!

So in this cafe, playing games is charged for each hour, no matter how many games you play. Then we can order the foods and snacks, their specialties are in western menu. But they also offered some packets, like 4 hours playing games including complete food menu (appetizer + main course + desert + free flow drink). At that time we played Taboo, Dirty Mind (we found the dirtiest person in the team haha!), Elephant Card, and Uno. I was really LOL-ing and ROFL-ing at that time. Never realized that my co-workers could also be so silly XD. Now I am starting to think of collecting unique cards and other boardgames!

I haven't visited any boardgaming cafe before. I remember when I was staying in Santai resort in Weh island, me and my travelling-mate were sitting all night in the guest room, playing scrabble and other boardgames that we could borrow free from that resort, while listening to the voice of sea (oh how I miss Weh! >.<). I don't know is there any boardgaming cafe in Indonesia, but we can find quite a lot here in Singapore. Like my boss said, boardgaming cafe in Indonesia (if any) should offer some traditional games like Congklak or Bekel kenyit

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…
