First destination : Jogja!

Finally, I can write and share again about my journey, everything I shot with my camdi. For my loyal reader of my blog, this is it, my new experience, absolutely; I’ll never try to forget!

Bag packer! Ahaa… I never imagine being bag packer. This is my first experience!

Yogyakarta was the first destination since I never go there and all of my friends often tell about the uniqueness of this student city more and more. I said to my self, one day, I bent on to go to this city, Gudeg city. Gudeg is the traditional food there; hmmm… the taste is too sweet for me: I can’t try it; I only ate Nasi Kucing (cat rice) and kopi joss (joss coffee) – a black coffee with black hot charcoal without any sugar; very dark and bitter.

I prepared everything for this journey, saving money, keep my health, and of course beg leave to my parents. Yep, those were tips for you if you wanna have a bag packing time like me.

Shortly, I went to Yogya with my friends, four men, and two women including me, my self. Hmm, brave enough! We entrain from Kiara Condong, Bandung, at 21.05 and we only need 24.000 rupiahs to buy a ticket. It’s very cheap for along journey. We arrived in Lempuyangan station, Yogyakarta at 06.30. Yep, almost 10 hours in train, very economic train, where many vendor there, from food, water, fan, doll, belt, many things. A train where you can smell kind of people’ sweat; you can see how dark the night; how romantic lamps at night. It sounds tiring and disgusting perhaps, but you know wonderful behind; full of lessons; down to earth! There was togetherness and effort to go for a stroll ^^

Believe it or not guys, I just need 350.000 rupiahs for five days in Yogya, including food, carfare, meet all bills and tickets, souvenirs, and many things. Wow! Out of my mind!

The most precious time was when Yogya celebrated my birthday ^^ I arrived in Yogya on October 18th 2009, in my birthday, in Yogya’s birthday also. Yep, I never celebrate my birthday in my hometown or my own place; I must go somewhere, new place. And how lucky I am, in this year, I celebrated my birthday in Yogyakarta. The pictures below were a special gift from Yogya to me (Yogyakarta’s Festival).





Giant puppet! I dunno whether this is Rama, Gatot Kaca, Brahmana or not. Do you know? I only know that puppet is our heritage. Keep it as mine!!
