Getting Old Happily

Llast Friday I was kind of having birthday. Yes, I'm getting old, thank you, but I was REALLY happy that day!

Usually, I spent hours before 12 AM with daydreaming and contemplating my life in the past and future, but that night I was not interested to think too much. I guess I've started taking this life not so serious anymore, that's good.

I didn't know what to do and I was not sleepy yet, so I phoned The Guy to demand a birthday greeting. Usually the birthday-person is being called, right? But this one vice-versa.

Around 7 AM, my parents woke me up by their call to say happy birthday and all the prayings. Thank you so much, Mom, Dad! :) Then, as always, they told me to wake up early, and I said yes, but of course after the phone's closed, I slept again.

I waited until 9.30 AM to go to the office because at that time taxi here won't charge 30% more. I took taxi because I brought a baggage to office, planning to go directly to airport in the afternoon for flying to my home in Jakarta.

Arrived at the office, I found a gift on my chair.


Tadaaa! It's Quidditch Lego!!!


I really love it, but I didn't know from whom was that, no letter nor card. Maybe it's from some wizards. I guessed Hagrid finally came to bring me to Hogwarts, like when he picked up Harry on Harry's 11th birthday, but me on my 25th. Well, better late than never. (Thank you my wizard friends, for this fabulous gift :D)

Then some other friends came to my cubicle bringing flower saying it was from a handsome guy haha! During lunch they surprised me more with the cake.



Crazy People

Around 5.30 PM I went to Changi airport. While waiting for boarding, I replied the greetings on my Facebook one by one. Imagine without Facebook, no one will remember my birthday haha. Isn't it nice, even though they didn't remember it by heart and only said default words like 'wish you all the best', but I still feel like having full attention from the universe. Every human-being wants to be noticed.

Arrived in Soekarno Hatta International Airport, The Guy had been waiting there for me :)

And at home, my younger sister had prepared cakes!


The Day was just perfect. Thanks for making this birthday girl happy. I love my life :)

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…
