Pain?ball

Yesterday company event was playing Crossfire Paintball 2.0, in Singapore Discovery Center. The participants who joined mostly never played this before, and were not Singaporeans... of course leh, they already experienced this in National Service what! This place is located far far away from the city, the most west green line MRT station: Joo Koon. Ha, I wouldn't take a visit until this far if not because this event (that's what my friend Kevin said).

We played 3 modes: shoot the balloon, save the flag, and elimination. The first session is to shoot the balloon of the opponent that is located in opponent's home base. The second one is to get our own flag that is located in the middle of field, then bring it to home base. Elimination is to shoot as many as possible of the other team, after being shot they can not go into the field again. My team only win the second session, (what I believe is) because we only got the good side at that time. FYI, the sides are really unfair: 23 of 25 winning was from the team that played in that specified 'lucky' side, the one that its maze is not too difficult to get to the closest place to other team's home base to shoot them. Well yeah, it's just a game (but the winner team got S$500! *gagal dapat THR T_T*).

This is absolutely not my kind of joy (fortunately it's free). Each time my turn to play, I was afraid like hell blabbering: "I'm dead, I'm fucking dead, shit shit." They said it's gonna be painful... this is PAINball! Hopefully I only got shot on my left foot and the mask. I was so scared hearing the pellets flying around my body, geez I wanted to finish all the game quickly and go home lol. It was in the hot afternoon and I was fasting. Perfect! Next time, please get me into shopping war or something, then I can rule the game, ha!

Other attractions that can be found in Singapore Discovery Center are: iWERKS (2D-3D cinema), XD Theatre (4D simulation ride), SAFTI tour, shooting gallery, and Army Museum.

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…

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 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
