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.

after all participant arrived, we go to Karangantu port. it takes around 30 minutes from Pakupatan bus station to Karangantu port using rented public transport (angkot) , because the boat already waiting for us, once we arrived at the port we directly go on board and go to Tunda Island.

Pakupatan Port

Around 2,5 hours trip, we arrived at Tunda Island, and go to the house that already prepared for us. And we take some rest and have lunch before we go to playing on the sea. Then around 1pm we go to the boat and before boarding the boat we not forget to take a photo together..

From 1pm until around 5pm we playing at the East side of the island, but sadly we can't get good visibility cause the wave make the sand coming up. But because we want to have fun, so we doesn't disturb by the condition... we just enjoy the moment together, having fun and swimming around the boat.

after back to the island, we looking for some instant noodle "indomie" then chasing the sunset.

On the day 2 all of us wake up early around 5.30 for chasing the sunrise. while waiting the sun rises we take some photo together.

and here is the sunrise....
