Although I have been born & bred in Jakarta, I haven’t been exploring this city enough. Of course I have been to most of the must-visit places in town, but not nearly as often as I wanted to. Until, a while back, when I saw a sign that says “CITY TOUR JAKARTA” at one of… Read More Touring Home
I have been on many different boats and ships in my life and I loved every single one of them. From a rusty fisherman boat in Pulau Seribu and Bunaken, speed boat in the jungle of Sebangau National Park in Central Kalimantan, narrow motor boat on the shallow Krueng Sabee river in Aceh, water taxi… Read More Boating in a Mangrove Forest
Looking back on my Maratua Trip, many interesting things happened. On my 2nd day, early in the morning I jumped on to the boat with my guide Alex and we went to Kakaban Island. The island is around 1 hour ride from Maratua. I then arrived in this green island with a small jetty… Read More Fried & Splish Splash

But, after visiting some of the historical sites the town had to offer, I decided that Kejaksan Train Station is the most interesting.

Getting lost. Could it be this addictive? I did get lost on my trip to Sempu Island, East Java. It was not an easy place to reach. You had to take a boat ride to reach the island around 20 minutes from Sendang Biru beach. It involved walking through a muddy land for 2 hours… Read More To Get Lost, and To Be Found
Whenever I got a chance to escape the big city, I grab that chance instantly. No matter just for a night or a long weekend, but I’m there. Just pack my weekender bag and I’m all set. A great way to recuperate and be ready to be in the ‘jungle’ once more. So, people here… Read More A Day At The Beach
I guess I always have a thing for all things arts and craft. And, i happened to find the perfect place to find it. Knick knacks at its finest are in abundance. I was overly excited and managed to stay there the whole day. But the most important skill to have is bargaining. That’s the… Read More For The Arts & Crafts Junkie
It may not be the biggest, but Danau Linow is definitely the most beautiful lake in North Sulawesi (Celebes). Like any other volcanic lakes, the high sulfur content gives you a slightly stinky smell once you enter the area. But, what makes the lake so special is that it shows 3 different colors, which, depends… Read More Lounging on a Lakeview Terrace
