Some People are Just Egoist

I started reading and loving Harry Potter since the first printing of its first book from Gramedia (its publisher in Indonesia). Should I be offended by the newbie Harry Potter freaks out there who just started creating a fan group? No!



I started reading and loving Raditya Dika books since the first printing of his first from-blog-to-book that was ON SALE in every bookshop because it didn't sell well in the first year. Should I be offended by his sudden thousands newbie alay fans? No!


I started reading and loving Naked Traveler books since the first printing of her first book, I came to her talkshow that was attended by only few people. Should I be offended by the newbie travelers who just read her book and said "hey, this is a must-read book for travelers, you should have it"? No!

I started using twitter more than two years ago when twitter was still private and peaceful. Should I be offended by the newbie tweeters who claim themselves as Social Media Junkie/Expert or whatsoever with so many followers even though their tweets are nonsense? No!

Why people are so protective to what they even do not own? Everyone can like Harry Potter even if he/she knows it recently. Everyone can like Raditya Dika books even if he/she's alay. Everyone can like Naked Traveler books even if he/she's traveling only for shopping and not so adventurous like Trinity (the author). Everyone can use Twitter even if he/she's selling something. Everyone can be a fan of GONZALO HIGUAIN even if she (this one might be specific for girls :P) just realized there's this upcoming handsome football star in the earth. What is your problem sih, I know you have been a fan of him since... I don't know, since he was born maybe, but you don't have any rights to insult people who just join your interests.

By the way, he IS REALLY hot, isn't he?

Also, I heard skeptical words about people who don't like football but suddenly being noisy for this World Cup event. That is egoist! World Cup is not yours only, or football freaks' only. Who knows, because of World Cup they're going to love football afterwards. Now I AM OFFENDED by these kind of snob people.

  1. well, that's why it's called "world cup fever". it wouldn't be that big without the seasonal fans :)

    now i'm not really a football enthusiast, but i liked it a lot and watched it every week when i was in junior high school. i did feel annoyed by this girl who was being "noisy" claiming she's a huge fan of italian serie a and inter milan, but actually she didn't even know what "espulso" is, or what the rule of offside is. i mean, did she even watch football?

    about this world cup, i really don't mind seeing people who show their enthusiasm for football even though they only follow it once every four or two years. well, just as long as they don't try to sound like an "expert" commenting about strategies, who should play, etc. i don't want to sound "egoist", but if i had only read the first book of harry potter, i shouldn't act like a harry potter freak commenting the complete story, right? the same goes here. if i haven't watch football for a very long time, i think i shouldn't act like i know what's good and bad for a team.

    *wow this is a long comment

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…
