I've just been blogwalking whole day and found many interesting blogs to read. One of them is offering this game called Piece of Me.

This month....


I like: that there will be another oversea trip for me. I am going to visit Kuching for 3 days. Where the hell is that, rik? Well, it is in Sarawak, one of Malaysia states in Borneo Island near Pontianak, Indonesia. I haven't gone there before, so I decided to just book the tickets when I heard about Tiger Airways promo last year. Amazingly I could get the tix only S$12 for both ways Singapore-Kuching. I repeat, 12 Singapore Dollars! It's like 8.55 USD or Rp. 80.375. So if I canceled going there anyway it was not so big deal to lose that amount of money. But I think I keep going. I am now inviting some travelers who are interested to go there together (love the rhythm) and contacting some travelers who are living there. Might this be an opportunity to meet new nice friends *crossfingers*.

I don't like: that... surprisingly I don't have anything to dislike about (yet).

I want you to know: that I have appointment tomorrow for applying Singapore Permanent Resident. Some friends of mine got rejected last year and might re-apply again 6-24 months (if they want to), but I hope mine is being approved.

I've planned: to start fulfilling my resolutions constantly (such as reading 1 book, watching 1 movie and cooking 1 recipe per week) and give myself a hard work in office. Work hard play harder!

I want to say to someone special: to BF, I.M.U.L.

It is fun. Visit Notes from the Toothfairy and join it.

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…
