The Show

Lenka was here! I'd got the ticket to the shoooow...
I reached the venue on time but it had a long queue to come in. When I was in front of the club 30 minutes later, Lenka had already started singing her first song on that night: Trouble Is A Friend. (Btw apparently there is another cute video of this song in digital puppet show way.)

Lenka performed all songs in her album (with cute backscreen... owl is my favorite!). Plus 2 new songs she made about a boy *winks*, 1 song for her ex-boyfriend (it's kinda sad), her version of Friday I'm in Love (The Cure) and All My Bells Are Ringing for the Christmas festive mood (love the part: I'll wrap it with a ribbon and a bow).

I am deeply in love with her songs which are cute, cheerful and meaningful. Like in Anything I'm Not: Gimme a break a little escape, I am so tired of being me, I wanna be new and different, Anything I’m not. Don't you all sometimes feel like this, hate yourself when doing wrong things over and over again, or when you meet someone taller someone more beautiful that you think you could not beat them. Even though we're happy being us, sometimes we want to getaway from this harsh reality! Okay, maybe it's a little bit too much, cause I'm happy with my life now. But still this Lenka's song is so touchy.

Another meaningful song I like is Live Like You're Dying. OMG It always successfully slaps on me, what I've been doing with my time? I procrastinated too much, I did what I don't like and sometimes against my principle, I didn't chase my dream. Take every moment; you know that you own them. It’s all up to you to do whatever you choose. Live like you’re dying and never stop trying. It’s all you can do, use what’s been given to you.

I also love We Will Not Grow Old, it was soundtrack of my solo traveling to Borneo. I don't know why, maybe because there's a part: Oh we've got a long long way to go to get there, we'll get there. Started listening to this song in MRT on my way to airport to start my 5 days journey and that would be still a long long way to go to get back home again, because deep inside my heart I was quite scared (ha-ha) and this song was cheering me up! Actually as Lenka told us in the concert about this song, she and friends when they were young didn't want to grow old because they thought adult life is so complicated and everything. Yes, indeed. She also explained about song Dangerous and Sweet that previously I didn't understand what this song is all about, it's about the time when she and her girl best friend had a big fight.

I also love.... okay, I love all of her songs!

Before she finished all of her songs, she and her bands excused themselves leaving us just like that. The light was still off so we hope that she's joking and started to call out her name. And yes, she then was back to the stage and sang 2 more songs. One of them is Like a Song with acapella and a war radio transmission as the backsound, quite sad and creepy.

At 10 PM the show was finished. For those above 18 years old could enter the Zirca MegaClub again for free. I would be glad to hangout a little bit more there, but the fun should be stopped at that time because the next day I was still going to work, gahhh! It's quite ironic that Lenka concert (with all those cute songs safely consumed by under-age) could only be seen by people above 16 years old, because the venue was in a club (but they're not selling any alcohol at that time only fro-yo haha). While Lady Gaga with all her sexy costumes and lyrics held concert in Fort Canning Park with many kids audiences.

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

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…
