Travel Sick

Before the Internet, if someone disappeared, it meant you should go looking for them. Now it means they got a life.
Please consider me as getting a life for not having any chance to update this blog :P

In this last one month I had fun and thrilling experience
s in Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia), Bandar Seri Begawan (Brunei Darussalam), Bali and Lombok (Indonesia), not included my small trip back to Jakarta for visiting boyfriend family. Three weekends in a row I was not in Singapore. When you've traveled a lot (as a newbie, these are a lot :P), you'd find that you miss your time just for lazying around in your apartment. I even almost slapped my friend last week who asked "what will you do on weekend?" and when I answered "just staying at home" he was kind of seeing me with a pathetic look. Dude, seriously!

Wookie, now I want to share what's inside my tiny backpack!


Even though I didn't bring them all everywhere, like I didn't bring jacket to the beach and mask to the mountain, but generally they are inside my bag: hat, jacket, shawl, umbrella, blackberry, wallet, notebook (as a book not laptop), pen, map, sunglasses, glasses (my sights are minus 800 and 600), the package of contact lenses, mask (with adjustable lenses).... oh so much for these eyes! Also my harryPODder (yea I know the iPod is so 1st generation, so what, I like him. Did I just write say HIM?!), pocket camera (thank God I am not into photography), hand fan, sunblock, make-up kit, and usually some snacks plus a bottle of mineral water. In some countries, well okay, Malaysia, you would prefer to leave your passport at hotel, and take really care your bag on the street. (I think it's applied also for Indonesia, but I wouldn't say it because it IS my country.... but I just wrote said it!).

I hope to write here
more often and read through all blogs I am following. See ya!

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…
