Trip Pulau Tunda - Ngewer Gonjreng (1-2 May 2015)

At this moment I want to share another short trip that located not far from Jakarta, Indonesia.
sorry if my English not too good, but I still tried to tell the story in English so everyone that can't speak Bahasa Indonesia can read the story and maybe interest to go here for holiday :)

Before start of the story i want to give short explain why the title is "Ngewer Gonjreng".
The words "Ngewer"  come once in the middle of the sea one of the party member want to pee and someone told "diewer aja" means that just pee on where you stay.
and the "Gonjreng" come while waiting for the boat driver one of my friend said "mesinnya di genjreng aja", what she mean is start the engine and it change to "Gonjreng" to make it easy listening. That's the begining why our group called "Ngewer Gonjreng"

The story started around march 2015, that my friend invite me to join trip to Pulau Tunda, Banten, with Share Cost system the trip will be cheap, cause my friend doesn't take any profit from this trip.

and since decide to join that trip, i tried to invite some friend to join the trip and hope if many people join it will be cheaper, after about a month i got 2 friend that will join this trip. But 2 weeks before the trip my friend cancel his booking.

To make long story short... finally at the end of April, my friend create whatsapp group to make communication easier to all member. After some discussion all participant from jakarta meet up in front of Plaza Slipi Jaya at 05.30 and participant from tangerang meet up at infront of tangcity mall at 06.00. Because i'm living close to Slipi Jaya so I choose meeting point at slipi Jaya.

on the departure date I go to Plaza Slipi Jaya and I see 2 groups of people there, luckily we still communicate on whatsapp group so  they recognize me, and I'm not join to wrong group. at this meeting point i meet with Andromeda, Dyah, Bakti, Rezi, Arif & Rikfi. After all participant at this meeting point complete we go to Banten using PrimaJasa (Rp.30.000)

After about 2 hours from Jakarta finally we arrived at Pakupatan Bus Station, at Banten. and we waiting another group from Tangerang and 1 person from East Jakarta. While waiting, one of my friend walking around the station then back to us with a bunch of bananas hahaha... And we eating bananas, drink some tea while waiting another participant. Finally around 8.30 group from Tangerang arrived.

Pengalaman Pertama naik Batik Air (Lion Group)

Kesempatan ini saya mau share tentang pengalaman menggunakan Batik Air.

Beberapa waktu lalu tanggal 17 Agustus 2015, adalah pengalaman pertama saya kembali dari Solo menggunakan Batik Air.

Kenapa Batik Air?
1. Katanya sekelas Garuda Indonesia
2. Katanya Ontine
3. Murah (kalau promo)

Cerita ini dimulai dari awal bulan juli, dimana tiba2 kepikiran kepingin pulang.. dan selagi ada libur 3 hari dibulan Agustus tanpa cuti..

Iseng2 cari2 tiket.. eh ngga sengaja liat ada Batik Air dengan harga tidak terlalu mahal (1 juta PP), tapi berhubung agustus ada plan banyak kerjaan dan adanya flight batik itu sore... jadi beli untuk Solo ke Jakarta dulu melalui traveloka dan berharap ada tiket kereta dari Jakarta ke Solo.

Setelah sekian lama cari tiket kereta dan ngga dapat akhirnya 2 minggu sebelum berangkat beli tiket Bus.

One Day Trip Singapore (Part 2)

At this moment I want to share another one day trip to Singapore.. 

It's happen about 1 year ago around June 2nd, 2014, and because of my experience before when using Lxxx Air, I choose Air Asia because it have good reputation as budget airlines. As usual I take the first flight of the day from Jakarta to Singapore and almost last flight from Singapore to Jakarta :).

I come to airport almost 2 hour before the departure, it's mean around 4 o`clock in the morning. But the immigration not opened yet, and it's open around 5 am, and my flight is the first international flight from T3, so there's not much queue on the immigration. 

Depature time 5:40, the sky still dark

Because lack of sleep, I slept just several minutes after take off. When I'm awake i can see the amazing sky view in the morning like the picture below.
Amazing Sky View in the morning

Kekuatan dari Doa (Surat Alm. Pdt. Em. Dr. Eka Dharmaputra)

(saya post Notes ini di FB pada Agustus 2013)

Setelah dari suatu ibadah hari minggu digereja.. dan kebetulan temanya tentang doa.. dan pemimpin ibadah membacakan surat dari Alm. Pdt. Em. Dr. Eka Dharmaputra sebelum beliau dipanggil pulang kerumah Bapa.

Dari surat ini saya diingatkan kembali tentang kekuatan dari sebuah doa.. dan Alm. mengingatkan bahwa jangan kita mengatakan "Saya cuma bisa berdoa", doa itu bukan hanya "cuma". Alm. bisa mengatakan begitu karena beliau bisa bertahan hidup karena doa dari ribuan orang diseluruh dunia untuk beliau. Dan beliau mengingatkan jika kita berdoa adalah minta kekuatan untuk menghadapi cobaan bukan untuk menghilangkan cobaan tersebut.

biar lebih jelas.. berikut suratnya yang saya copy dari :

One day trip to singapore

at this chance I'll share my 1 day trip at Singapore.

around 1 year ago at May 28, 2014 I've go to Singapore to do some job from my office. 

because it's count as 1 day trip so I don't get hotel and taxi as accommodation cause what should I do just meet up with someone at airport, so my business at Singapore will finished in less than 1 hour at the Airport. 

Because of this is public holiday in Indonesia, if I use same day flight the ticket price were very high. After discussing with my boss I can go to Singapore 1 day before and stay at my cousin apartment. And luckily the person that i need to meet at Singapore can come to meet me while I'm Arrived, so I have 1 day (around 12 hour)on the next day just to enjoy Singapore .

First to make my trip more easy I used Ez-Link card, and luckily I already have it since 2013. so I just need to Top Up the value.   

To make the story short, After I finished the office duty I meet up my cousin at Expo (1 MRT Station from Changi Airport), Have some dinner then continue to their Apartment to take some rest. 

On the next day, in the morning after take some bread for breakfast and ask the transportation that I can use to go to Marina, I say goodbye to my cousin and his wife then go to Marina Bay Sands by Bus.

From my cousin apartment I have to change the Bus 2 time before arrived at Marina Bay Sands, I use 945 from bukit batok ave to Bukit Batok Central, then I take 106 to Marina Bay Sands Hotel. 

After walking crossing the Marina Bay Sands Hotel then go under the bridge, I get to Garden by The Bay and enjoy the park.
