Dinosaurs come alive at China!

When I was a little kid, I used to be a fanatic fan of Jurassic Park. It’s like I could and I always wanted to re-watch all of the Jurassic Park movie. Even if the earlier movies seem not real enough, it doesn’t matter to me.

I knew exactly that Dinosaurs are not longer alive since 65 million years ago or so. But I often caught my self wondering and imagining that I’m living in a world where dinosaurs are still alive, when you can see them with your own eyes, and you have to run away escaping from the T-Rex. Life will be so much exciting, I thought. Lanjutkan membaca Dinosaurs come alive at China!

Seaside Dining on Jimbaran Beach, Bali

For you who have a chance to visit Bali, you should never ever missed one dinner time at the seashore. Fresh coconut water, fresh seafood, & the beautiful sunset are there waiting for you. Here in Bali, the most popular spot where you can experience dining on the beach sand on the sunset is is in Jimbaran. There are plenty of restaurant lined up in the beach. You can choose any restaurants you want because most of them sell the same kind of food. But don’t be surprised, the food is indeed over priced.

Kopi Scooter, Bandung Indonesia

It was raining heavily outside & I stayed all day at home waiting for the rain to stop. I love watching the rain pouring down. It feels so peaceful & calm. Sitting beside the window while enjoying my hot coffee will always be my favorite thing to do when it’s raining outside. I don’t know why but something about ‘watching the rain fall’ & ‘listening to the drip drop thing‘ makes me feel so powerful & refreshed. I personally love t.

The Beauty of Gulangyu Island

Have you ever dreamed of living in an island which is traffic-free & has a great view that you think you don’t wanna go back to the city you used to live in? Well, I never thought about it actually. And I don’t even know that this kind of island does exist. Not until I found this beautiful island during my last visit to Xiamen (also known as Amoy), China last September.

Gulangyu Island is located in the southwest of Xiamen City (厦门). People know it for its natural beauty, its varied architecture, and the ancient relics. Only electric-powered vehicles are permitted here so there will be no pollution or noise. But who needs a vehicle? This island is only 2 square kilometres in area! Quite small, but it is a home for some people & it’s the favorite tourist destination in Xiamen.

Enjoying Sunset at Tanah Lot, Bali, Indonesia

I guess everyone knows Bali. It’s so popular among the travelers because of its beautiful beaches, its culture, and its nightlife. Although this island is pretty small, every inch of Bali offers you a unique & unforgettable experience. So don’t ever EVER left your camera at home.

During my last visit to Bali, Indonesia, in September 2011, I spent my last evening in Pura Tanah Lot waiting for the sun to set. Pura Tanah Lot is built above the rocks in the middle of the beach & is one of the best place to watch sunset in Bali. Lanjutkan membaca Enjoying Sunset at Tanah Lot, Bali, Indonesia

Borobudur Temple, Yogyakarta

It was not until the last 2 years that I finally stepped on one of the greatest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia. Yes, I went to Yogyakarta (or simply Yogya), which is one of the foremost cultural centers of Java, last 2 years with some friends. And for me, visiting Yogya would not be complete without going to the Borobudur temple. This temple is a main tourist attraction in Java Island, and it’s even listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

So here I am! Lanjutkan membaca Borobudur Temple, Yogyakarta

Elephant Trekking Adventure at Pattaya, Thailand

For me, Thailand is all about Tom Yum soup, beautiful beach, and elephant. So that time, we went to Chang Thai Thappraya Adventure Park. It’s near the Pattaya Floating Market, but too bad I can’t find it in google map this time.

Here, you can do many outdoor activities, like buggy cart riding, ATV riding, elephant trekking, horse riding, and many more. But since we are in Pattaya, the best choice for us to do is the elephant trekking, isn’t it? Lanjutkan membaca Elephant Trekking Adventure at Pattaya, Thailand

Ninotchka Coffee Parlour & Diner

This is it! Ninotchka Coffee Parlour & Diner. A perfect hideaway for those looking to escape from the routine in the crowded city, Jakarta.

I’ve never heard about this place before, until my cousin tell me so. She was like : “Oh my God. Seriously? How could you not know about Ninotchka? It has been mentioned a lot in Twitter!”  And I was like : “Oh really? … Too bad I didn’t know anything about it. ”

Well, yeah, she’s right. I then searched the internet about Ninotchka. I found that this cafe is run by one of the famous Indonesian fashion blogger, Sonia Eryka. Okay, I should make another confession. I didn’t know anything about her either since I’m not into fashion blog. Lanjutkan membaca Ninotchka Coffee Parlour & Diner
