WTM: Petualang Cilik di Rumah Perubahan

Di postingan Weekend Tanpa Mall (WTM) kali ini saya mau sharing tentang Rumah Perubahan. Berawal dari browsing-browsing info relawan, saya menemukan ada event Petualang Cilik yang sedang mencari kakak-kakak relawan. Setelah baca detail event nya, instead of join as volunteer, kok saya jadi tertarik untuk mendaftarkan anak saya di event ini. Dengan membayar Rp.75,000, si anak dapat bermain sambil belajar di alam seperti memetik sayuran, memberi makan dan memandikan kerbau, dan bermain games seru (yang mereka sebut funlethics, perpaduan antara fun dan athletics). Ada juga aktivitas/wahana lainnya seperti menangkap dan memberi makan ikan, tapi ada tambahan biaya lagi. Berikut contoh agenda nya:
07.00-08.00 : Registrasi ulang dan pembelian tiket wahana terusan
08.00-10.30 : Acara Petualang Cilik
10.30-12.00 : Wahana Terusan
12.00          :  Selesai

The First Taste of Celebes: Day 3-4

Hi, this time I am going to write about the rest of my Makassar trip. In my previous post, I have shared places that Lost Wanderer crew (I, my husband and our daughter Nad) visited on our first and second days in Makassar which are: around the city (Fort Rotterdam, Kampung Popsa, Losari Beach) and Maros (Rammang-Rammang, Leang-Leang, Bantimurung). So, where to go next?

On the third day, we went to Malino. The same driver, from the same car rental company as yesterday, picked us up at the hotel around 8.30am. I confirmed to continue booking their car rental service just the night before. The rate to rent car 12hours to Malino was Rp.500,000 (exclude fuel charge), more expensive than the price to Maros. Honestly, I still don't understand why the price is different with the same car and same duration. I know Malino was further than Maros and would spend more fuel, therefore I acknowledged the higher fuel charge we paid, but higher rental car charge as well? I don't get it. Anyway, I was too lazy to find another car rental, so I just stuck with this AnginMammiri.com company.

First, we stopped by at Balla Lompoa Museum, still inside Makassar city but it's on the way to Malino. This used to be a palace of the Sultanate of Gowa, the most successful ancient kingdom in South Sulawesi. Now the stilt house building is used as a museum in where Gowa relics items being kept and displayed to visitors, such as crowns, jewelry, clothes, and weapons. We were the only visitors at that morning, so it was quite enjoying to explore all by ourselves. No annoying photographers and Nad was not cranky being inside that old building surrounding by old stuff (not like when we visited Pagaruyung Palace in West Sumatera :P).

To get more feel of Gowa, we rented a traditional costume, only Rp.50,000/person, and wear it while sightseeing the museum. Its women traditional cloth is called Baju Bodo. Baju Bodo colors have meanings:
  • Orange is used by girls until 10 years old
  • Red is used by big girls from 10 until 25 years old
  • Black is used by women from 25 until 40 years old
  • White is used by nurses
  • Purple is used by widows

I should have worn the black one :p
