Here's what I thought after hearing this song of Meghan Trainor
"Not always fat people who have low self-esteem about their body. Some skinny people also have low self-esteem. So it's kinda suck when people start saying "boys want to have something to hold on to" just to make the 'fat' people feel good. What if the 'skinny bitches' you're all talking about don't really want to be that skinny? What if somehow, she just can't get her body 'curves'? So I prefer for anyone not really talking about this shit."
It feels like the person you loved has mysteriously transformed into someone you don't even recognize. Like your significant other has died and been replaced by some cruel person who has done irreparable harm to your heart. They're a stranger now.. or worse, they treat you like one.
Just when you think that your heart has finally ossified into an impenetrable, love-proof-fortress that dedicates every effort to our the office or the gym.. a new pair of eyes, a new voice, a new person you have to talk to before you go to bed every night, a bright new ember in your heart that grows and burns and catches fire.
Yet, cynics, you will be vulnerable again. You will risk your heart again. You will be hurt again. You will find your heart broken again.
but you will also love and be loved again and again
No! I didn’t want to check out
from Pondok Umalas but we ran out of money so we need to check out that
I finally met his sister and his
cousin. They both were so cute!! His cousin was having her 19th birthday so we
bought her a cake at the harvest. Everybody has already known that their cake
are so good right?
After visiting his family, we
decided to extend our vacation. We want to spend one more day at Seminyak.
Since we were driving our car, it was a bit difficult for us finding a place,
which has a parking lot, to stay. We didn’t do anything special at there, just
wandering around, going to Kuta Beach, that’s all.
Leaving Bali :(
The sunset we enjoyed in the ferry
We left Bali and went straight to
Kawah Ijen! As usual we use google map to lead us going there. At first it was
normal then an hour later, the road was getting worse and worse. It was really
dark because there were no street light. There were a lot of big rocks on the
road, poor poppy L.
On our way back from Ijen, we found out that google map showed us a shorter way
but the worst way ever. Actually if you follow the sign and follow the road, my
experience will not happen to you.
Kawah Ijen’s sky was so great!
There were full of stars, I couldn’t stop saying “whoa” and couldn’t keep my
head to stay inside the car. It was so cold at night though. Make sure to bring
a thick jacket, gloves, something to cover your head or ears and a proper
shoes. The wind also blow badly.
We catched for a quick sleep
before going to the top of Ijen. At 2 A.M we woke up, got ready, then bought
the ticket. We need to pay Rp 5.000/person and Rp 10.000 for a car. We need 3
hours of normal walking to reach the top of Ijen.
At the top of Ijen the wind blow
worse, as there were no tree to block the wind. We went down to see the blue
fire clearer, however we couldn’t see it well because of the fog. We stayed
there to catch our breath. Before we catch our breath, the scent of sulfur hit
our nose, we couldn’t breath well! Boyfriend and I immedately went up again. I
was a bit afraid at there. But somehow human’s ability in an urgent situation
can blow my mind. I went straight up just took less than 30 minutes, but it
took more than 1 hour for us to go down hahaha.
On the top of Ijen we enjoy the
sunrise. It was so great! It was worth the pain.
The best pic of blue fire we could get :(((
Remember when I told you the wind blew really badly?
On our way from Ijen to Baluran
p.s. my suggestions are
1. Make sure you work out a bit
before going to Ijen, like 15-30 minute jogging everyday for a week, will be
helpful. You will thank me later.
2. Bring enough drink and
chocolate on your way to the top of Ijen, I felt better after chewing some
chocolate on my way to the top.
3. Do not go to the top of Ijen
too early, you won’t want to wait to see the sunrise, on the top of Ijen when
the wind blows badly.
Taman Nasional Baluran
After visiting Kawah Ijen, we
went to Taman Nasional Baluran.
Taman Nasional Baluran opens from
8 am to 4 pm. After 4 pm they will not allow you to come inside, because the
ticket stall will be closed. The ticket price only Rp 5.000/person and Rp
10.000 for a car.
On our way to Savanna Bekol, we
saw two foreigners walking. I remember that day the sun was shining too
brightly! We felt sorry for those foreigners, so we asked them whether they
wanted to join us or not, and they said yes. So we got accompany for this trip,
they were Clara and Vero. They told us they already walked for 2 hours! I
couldn’t imagine the torture.
After one hour (or so) of
driving, we finally arrived at Savanna Bekol. We wanted to buy a drink at
there, but there were no drink stalls at there. We took a few pictures then
continued our journey to Pantai Bama. It didn’t take a long time to reach
There was a canteen at Pantai
Bama, we catched a break bought some ice tea and had short conversations before
exploring Pantai Bama. We wished, we could have swum, but there were too many
monkeys at there. We were a bit afraid the monkey would attack us, luckily it
Clara and Vero wanted to have
lunch, but boyfriend and I haven’t felt hungry, so we just stayed at the beach.
As I remember boyfriend and I fell asleep for 30 minutes, then Vero and Clara
came. Then we explored mangrove forest. Boyfriend and I were a bit dissapointed,
because there weren’t much to explore at Pantai Bama.
Anyway we back to Savanna Bekol,
we went to the view spot. It was so beautiful up there, We stayed there for an
hour, just watching the view. I was right there with my boyfriend, meeting new
friends, enjoying the beautiful view, feeling the wind. I could say it was a
beautiful moment to end my road trip.
I saw you monkey!
The Mangrove Forest
p.s. People said it’s better to
visit Taman Nasional Baluran in dry season, so you will know why they say it’s
Africa of Java. They also said the animals will go out from the forest to look
I think it becomes a habit, that
we always check out, a minute right before the check out time. Though we had
planned to check out at 9 am or 10 am, but we would check out at 11.30am. This
hotel was too great to be left early anyway.
Today boyfriend had a plan to
visit his little sister and his cousin at Denpasar then go to Pantai Suluban.
To be honest I was a bit nervous to meet his family. Just kidding! I am not
nervous, ha! I am so fucking nervous! I kept thinking “I am so dead!”
Befor going to his sister
place we check in at Pondok Umalas. That place was a-ma-zing! I wish I could
just stay at there all day long. Anyway I couldn’t, We have somewhere else to
go. Before going to Pantai Suluban, we wanted to pick up his sister and his
cousin first, then they texted him saying he couldn’t come with us because they
need somewhere else to go. Then we went to Pantai Suluban.
It was so hot at the beach! The
only shady place is the cave and it was already taken by people, so we let our
skin getting darker. It’s a vacation anyway! Oh, maybe if you go to right side
of the beach, you can find another shady places. Some people also had another
fun by surfing from this side. Or if you just want to enjoy the sunset, you can
hang out at the bar.
In the night, boyfriend and I decided to enjoy the villa. Anyway, he was more interested to watch the tv for the politic news, which was important at that time, rather than went out. We ordered our food at La Casetta. We knew this restaurant because they have La Casetta's menu in the vila. We ordered ravioli ricotta e spinaci and gnocchi ala genovese. It didn't take a long time for them to deliver our foods. Thank God they also came in big portion. I really love my gnocchi ala genovese!! Since I am not really a big fan of fresh tomato taste, I didn't really fancy the ravioli ricotta e spinaci.
Ravioli Ricotta e Spinaci & Gnocchi ala Genovese
p.s. if you enter “blue point beach” on google map,
you will enter the beach from Blue Point Resort, and you will pass a lot of
cafes and souvenir stalls, if you enter “pantai suluban” on google map, you
won’t find any cafe to go there. It’s just stairs and stairs and stairs and
trees. It’s more quite.
