PITBULL
Originally uploaded by lamcproductions
I've been listening to Pitbull since I watched Fast and Furious 4 movie last year. The soundtracks are full of his songs: Blanco, Krazy, etc. Few months later he released his new album, it's also enjoyable! How can we not dance when hearing I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) and Room Service?! No wonder when I heard he's coming to Jakarta this May, I was excited and disappointed at the same time. The concert was held in the middle of the week, I could not take day off to fly to Jakarta from Singapore only to watch Pitbull. Why wasn't he coming to Singapore?! That's when I realized, maybe he IS planning to stop by Singapore as well.

I googled and found an unfamous site stated Pitbull is coming to Jakarta and (yay!) Singapore this May, but no other details about the Singapore one. I guess people in Singapore are less maniac about this Doggy than Jakarta people. Tickets were already sold out in Jakarta, while here's no any news how to buy the tickets yet. The publication was not so big here.

Well anyway, I watched it last Tuesday! It was 1 week after the concert in Jakarta (you could see the review in Andhari's blog, haha IN YOUR FACE! You know what, I also read so many bad words about Pitbull on my Twitter timeline. For those who don't know about Pitbull, you're really not happening, guys!). Opening act was by DJ Inquisitive, the one who also performed on Lady Gaga's concert and City Alive! There must be only few DJs in Singapore.

The show started at 8 PM, but Pitbull finally came out around 9.30 PM (I heard a lot of voice "come on, I have to work tomorrow!"). It was so fun, even though I could not sing along the songs which mostly in Spanish. There's one song I never heard before, Pitbull asked us to say it out loud: Watagatapitusberry (I didn't know how to pronounce it at that time). There was a latino couple behind me laughing and screaming it out loud, like they really understood what it means. Don't google the meaning, okay!

Although the lyrics are absurd, Pitbull's songs are always fun to dance! One of my favorites was Shut It Down where Pitbull sang: "oooh can't nothing hold me down, I'm gonna touch the sky" and asked us to look at the sky and try to touch it (oh the concert was in Fort Canning park, an outdoor venue. I was quite worried, because 2 hours before the show it was still raining). The sky was beautiful, I barely notice it in my daily life. The last song he performed: "now jump up let's get Krazy!" I literally jumped up. It was great! I came home with no voice, shaking legs and tired all over body. Dalleeee!

  1. heyahaha... the funny thing was that he kept his biggest hits (Hotel Room, Krazy) for encore, which was almost drag the gig down when the crowds failed to gather enough applause. solution: get the percussionist to drum up the crowds :))

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…
