Safari Night Singapore

Last Year me and BF went to the famous Singapore Safari Night.

Safari night is very famous, even more famous than the zoo itself. They claim as one of the best attraction in Asia.

I was very excited, even though bf keep pulling his face off because we have to pay 32 sgd per pax. Yeah, its so damn expensive!

So then we’re waiting for the amazing moments… and found out that…. it’s only a small zoo with animals.

Yeah, the presenter trying to make us laugh… he’s succeed for several times, but i don’t pay 32 sgd to laugh *gags*

Well, since I have visited Taman Safari Indonesia at Puncak, so I think Indonesia is better!!

So guys, just visit Indonesia zoo.. it’s better, larger, and cheaper! hahaha.. only 100 k IDR or around 15 sgd!

the pic is indeed blurry :p

Batu Karas, Indonesia

This Ied holiday 2010, me and family went to Batu Karas, West Java!

They said, this is a very good beach for beginner surfer 🙂

Indeed the wave is quite “exciting” because it’s not big yet the frequency of waves is very often (like 5 waves every 1 minute).

They also have the beautiful green canyon, a good spot for body rafting.

Green Canyon

Me and BF, it’s so difficult to get up here!

Banana boat! I got bleed because I were too excited 😦

malacca

This is a note from my trip in 2010.

Me and Z, my friend who lived in KL at that moment decided to visit Malacca.

We took public bus from KL bus terminal, and it took about 2 hours to reach Malacca. I forgot the exact amount that we paid, but it’s not pricey, i think it’s not more than 10 USD.

Ruins of Fort A Famosa

Christ Church, Malacca

Suddenly when I walk towards Jonker Street, the famous street in Malacca where you can find foods and shops, I saw a long queue outside some restaurants. That made me and my friends, Z, curious. I decided to queue while she identified why people was queueing, indeed the day is so hot there! Yeah, Malacca is a harbor city, that’s why Dutch used to civilized them, because Malacca is an important port area at that moment.

We found out that they’re queueing for rice ball! I bet the rice ball is so good so that the people willing to queue for such a long time. We got in after queueing for 30 minutes, and indeed the rice ball is so good! They create a round rice ball, so we can take one by one with chopstick. Both rice and the chicken is so tasteful, not to mention the fresh lime juice.

Very recommended to try!

I want to go to Malacca again just to eat the riceball!

durian chendol.. quite pricey but super yummy!!

Haw Par Villa Garden

Yesterday me and my Googler friends visit this Haw Par Villa Garden. Initially we aimed to play boardgames at Mind Cafe Boat Quay already closed!

So, in our disappointment, my friend suggest us to go to this odd and strange garden called Haw Par Villa.

From Boat Quay, we take green line from MRT raffles place to Buona Vista. And because we’re so smart, we take taxi from there.

Because we actually can use yellow circle line MRT which stops exactly at Haw Par Villa!!!

Apologize I dont have sufficient pictures now, but i’ll post it as soon as I got it from my friend’s.

I only have this pic now, the zodiac sign of Rooster.

See, Rooster best partner #1 is OX!!!

my bf sign = rooster. me = ox.

Wow!!

Sarawak Kolo Mee

My friend suggest this noodle, he said it’s very good!

We, Indonesians, always consider foods in Singapore tasteless.

The taste is not strong enough, because our tongue get used to Indonesian foods which are very spicy and has strong taste.

Name of the food is Sarawak Kolo Mee. From the name, you can guess that this is Malaysian cuisine. But, I wonder it has pork (Malaysian is a moslem country).

However, I tried it second time now.. And yes, it’s really GOOD!

For Singaporean hawker foods, this one really fit Indonesian tongue, MUST TRY!

the place is at B’gain hawker centre, near Jurong East MRT.

The price is 3.5 for regular portion and 4 SGD for big portion (I’ve tried both :D. If you’re a man, I suggest you choose the bigger bowl. You’ll able to finish it, trust me!)

Sarawak Kolo Mee and KOI cafe Yakult Green Tea

Not to forget, my newly favorite bubble drinks: KOI cafe. Before, my fav bubble drinks is Gong Cha Alisan Milk Tea, but I found out that KOI cafe pearls is smaller and so they have a lot of pearls in one glass! Plus, the price is cheap.. I bought this new launched item: Yakult Green Tea, medium size is only 2.9 SGD and large cup only 3.5 SGD.

I notice they have stalls in Jurong east, clementi, china town… But I’m sure they have lot more stalls. You can GOOGLE it 🙂

Fall in love with the right person

The bitter and sweet.

When I’m in high school, I used to have a crush with some men, but everything ended bitter for me.

Oh yeah, it does taste sweet when I feel that he had crush on me either.

But in the end, i’ll realized that he does not like me.

In college, I have my first boyfriend.

But, my relationship filled with 90% bitter and 10% sweet things.

It began with sweet act, treatments, words.. but finally i realized that he’s the type of man who will broke every women’s heart.

Then I began to feel that love is a very dangerous thing, and if you’re not ready.. better avoid it.

When i’m not in love, i feel stronger. I can face anything, any challenge, any career stage in front of me.

But when i’m in love, i tend to be weaker.. to be boneless.

But, shit.. i’m a human.

I always like somebody, because I have feeling.

So, then I met this man..

I thought he was not my type at that moment, but I am really curious with his cool-ness.

And i don’t know why.. I always replied his in messenger or text.. I can avoid him like i avoid any man that (i thought) i don’t really like.

My heart was scrambled, i can’t even guess my feeling.

What i know is.. this man had all the good things that you could expect from a man.

He doesn’t smoke, not a drunker, love his family so much, and he’s very responsible.

But i did not really thought that this relationship will leads to “something”.

After 1.5 years.. I realized that i hurt him many times.

But he’s still here, besides me (not, technically).

He always trying to understand.. for who i am, who i want to be, and the evil me.

He is very patient.. listened to all my messy day, my heartbreaking career, or even my PMS cramp.

He can accept me telling him fat all the times.. and he bought a hula-hoop because i asked him to be slimmer.

I cried several times during this relationship, but mostly because i’m very impulsive.. or I’m in my period.

He cried for me twice, and i remember it all.

I remember every second of it.. and i’ll never forget it.

I remember that when we first have this relationship.. I always complaint about the physical things.

But now.. when I see his face.. the first feeling that i got is.. home.

Yeah, his face is a home for me.

A place where i could go after i’m tired working.. and most of all.. a comfort.

I feel very peaceful after seeing his face.

Even he can put-up with me not allowing him reading my blog (at all) for 1.5 years! At that moment I said I need private space.

And he can put-up with that, and now I dedicate this entry for him and allowing him reading my blog for the first time 🙂

Before,

I can’t find out the most reason why God put us in this long distance relationship.

Maybe because God knows I will always dream of overseas life.. so then HE put me in this closest overseas location.

Or maybe.. God just want to show how much he’s patient with me.

When I feel frustrated with this condition, he always calm.

Even though i hope that he could cry with me.. but i know deep inside.. he missed me as much as i do.

Magically, in this relationship.. I don’t feel any bitter.

It always taste sweet.

Now I know how it felt to fall in love with the right person.

Now I know, love will taste bitter when you’re in love with the wrong person.

Thank U God for everything 🙂

For what I ask and I didn’t ask, but YOU made it all for me.

Thanks for YOUR greatest blessing ever.

PS: the most romantic thing he ever did (even though I always says he’s not romantic) is waiting for me sleeping for 1 hour in front of gtalk! yeah, i was very tired and sleepy at that moment. So, i just fell asleep and he waited for me.. he said, he enjoyed looking at my sleeping face. Aww, babe.. you’re so sweet.. Thanks for making me feel the prettiest girl in the world 🙂
