Rafting with Songadventure

Exam weeks have already over, and my college mates decided to have a short vacation before we all start our internship. This maybe a very brilliant idea to take out rafting as the final choice to spend the rest of our free time. We can let our stress out, enjoy the scenery, a refreshing day! Well actually I never do a 'real' rafting before, and it was my first time.

We chose this rafting service named SONGADVENTURE which reccomended by a college mate. Weeks before we booked for eighteen people, so they have prepared everything when we arrive. On last thursday, around 7am we departed from Surabaya, had our breakfast at a streetside traditional food in Sidoarjo, then continued our trip to Probolinggo.

They welcomed us with welcome drink which very 'village favorite', wedang jahe at their base camp. We got short preparation before we moved to start point. They provided pick-up cars to drove us there, but we still need to walk around 1-2 km to reach the riverside. The river itself named Sungai Pekalen. And it all began here!

Riznanda, Vinesia, me, and Hakara who is the youngest and so Chaning Tatum look alike.
These guys were my team on board, minus Aldi Kim. 

Look at our flip flop, they are SKYWAY, favorite local brand for 'sendal jepit'.
Chaning Tatum (look alike) was wearing flip flop brand Skyway! What a funny headline...

It was totally amazing! The scenery was spectacular, we crossed several bat crave, and waterfalls.
We really felt the feeling when the falls drop the water into our body. And screaming when we hit the rocks.

All rafting squad took a pose in front of the waterfalls.

The very unforgettable moment is when my boat was not stable so it just reversed. Our guide was tried his best to make it stable, and the MAN OVER BOARD just happen. I got hard impact on my face, and it still bruise now. The SAR team helped us to get back to boat and we could continue our adventure.

My team on board, Hakara, Vinessia, Aldi Kim, and Riznanda with guide Mr. Edi (center).
He said that we are a compact team because the 'man over board' happened to all of us and we prevented 'Kim over board'.

It was spectacular, and SEE YOU ON OUR NEXT ADVENTURE!!!

The answer

These weeks are really the busy time in this semester. So many projects before the exam coming. Less hang out or outfit hunting again. At least even for spending time sitting and enjoying a cup of coffee while reading fashion headline in the corner of coffee shop, I couldn't make it. And perhaps you all bored with my word 'busy' but it's okay. I'm not only share my thought in daily style or make up trend, but share some of my feeling too in order to give inspiration for people whose feel the same. People who give up in the middle of their struggle, people who love other than what they do daily, and who confuse what should they live their life.

As you know that I said 'busy' oftentimes about my school, the reality is like that. I can't deny and pretend that I'm totally happy or enjoy all lectures, I'm a normal human too. I can't do everything perfectly. But this time I'm happy with what I done. Some improvement in fashion career, stronger a bit, and try to not really care of everything which not give contribution to my life. Facing people with my heart, not reply them as what they do to me. Because I always remember when a friend said "I treat people because of God, no matter how bad what they do to me, I just remember God". So it's good to be good to people, everyone everywhere.

In this recent time, I have a motivational discussion with a friend about life. I don't know I just interest more about what is life should be or how to live the life, everything relate to "life". I open my mind a lot, realizing much, and getting the answers for all things I confusing before. One sentence that I decided to write on this post from that discussion is "I am doing anything which will be a blessing for other" Perhaps this a very great answer of a question; how to live the life. Very motivational and touching of course. 

Once I thought that perhaps that all are the answer from my prayer, God sent some incredible friends to motivate me. I was vulnerable, devastating, and they just come to support. They bring a hope into my life. And I feel better better and blessed. Thank you for everyone who supporting me, also to the hatter who always push me to be the better person.

And I don't want my readers boring with the words, so here I pick photos that I did for a local brand PITTA. I love their highwaist pants, the patterns, lining also the fabric. It was just fit perfect on my body since that I hard to find apparels on my size. They also have some casual collection which suitable to wear daily. And for their upcoming collection, there will be some fancy crop top in a set with midi skirt. So keep checking their instagram oftentimes!
