The famous bridge in Indonesia, named Suramadu, which connect the Java island (Surabaya) and Madura island. The ship was sailing across this bridge, exactly when time for sunset was coming. And we got the spectacular view, one of incredible moments. In 30 minutes, we saw the sky changed colors, the sun went down, and the lights over the bridge were turned on.

The guys who took many great photos on the event, Dimas (forgot his last name).

A life at sea, the light sparkling all over the night.

Having a dinner on board and sailing across the Madura Strait is one of memorable experience to me. I met so many great people, had a short discussion, and exchanged ideas.

Dreams. There must be hundreds, thousands, even millions kind of dreams.
One is the dream that will never comes into reality. Because it stay serenely inside the heart for long time, even no one know when it ends. That dream lives inside the soul forever and it is like a little happiness which will always blossom in sadness. They knew that it will always be only a dream, but they don't want to forget, they want to keep it, no matter what's going on. Because several parts of their life, still alive because of that dream.

That dream is a dream that will stay strongest, even hurt the deepest, but also the purest.

Being sad.

Perhaps people avoid this kind of feelings, but I don't know that by this feeling, inspiration just come easily. And I can write better, not a story about feeling but something incredible to share. In common perception, sadness means the point when your heart get hurt and you dying enough to struggle days forward. But for me this feelings are not only describe by that both description. Being sad is also the point when your heart get touched by something huge which can changes your life opinion.

I feel like I get the internal push from myself, don't know whether it's a heart force or a brain command. And then I be like a power ranger who just can change their self in seconds! I'm become great and amazing.

Actually I'm a fan of How I Met Your Mother, an American TV shows which finally end up in 9 seasons, and I love the story even sometimes we can found adult discussion. The way of their five main characters pass the time struggle for their friendship. And of course the motivational quotes from it. Here one of my favorites :

"Whenever I'm sad,  
I stop being sad and be awesome instead"

Lost in Kuala Lumpur.

Last week I spent my weekend abroad by visiting Kuala Lumpur with four others. We raised the backpacker concept for this trip, but it was not really worked. We went to so many famous brand stores, and we bought so many fascinating stuffs. 


We walked around Bukit Bintang, a district in Kuala Lumpur, where we found so many stores to shop. It was so crowded, the pedestrian walked crossing the street, entering a shop then moving to others, and carrying so many paper bags.

View from TASTE ENCRAVE at Avenue K.

We stayed at LeApple Boutique Hotel while in Kuala Lumpur. The hotel is next to Avenue K, a shopping center with LRT station underground. So we were easily to visit many places because the LRT station were next to our hotel. Beside that, we only need to walk for five minutes to reach the famous twin tower, PETRONAS.

The famous Malaysia's icon, PETRONAS TWIN TOWER.


We also had night walking to visit other tourism spots, such as Masjid Jamek.
From our hotel, we took LRT direct route from KLCC station to Masjid Jamek station. There will be a train to pick you up at the station for every five minutes. So we didn't wasting our time for waiting.

Dataran Merdeka located not far from Masjid Jamek, it was about ten minutes walking. We can find the unique architecture of the building there.

Intan and Fachrul.


Next to the Dataran Merdeka, there is Kuala Lumpur City Gallery. But unfortunately, it was closed in the night. So the only one we can do was took photo in front of this huge unique stone.

PETRONAS night view, sparkling and so amazing.


We took the first train from KLCC station to KL Sentral station around 6am. Then we changed into monorail from KL Sentral to Batu Caves. And we just sit about 45 minutes till we arrived at Batu Caves, a tourism spot which also a holy place for Hindu.

MONTCHI, my lovely doraemon mini doll, always escort me wherever I go. He had went to so many places in Indonesia such as Jakarta, Bandung, Cirebon, Surabaya, Solo, Lombok, Bali, and even abroad which is Kuala Lumpur this time.

Behind the huge statue, there are stairs to reach the cave inside the rocks.


I dont know but there's so many changes since the last time I went to Kuala Lumpur years behind. It's bigger, and modern.

Well actually there are so many other photos, and stories to tell. But this one is a brief story about it. Even it was too short to spend days there, but I'm totally enjoy it!
