Main Bentar ke Genting

Perjalanan mengarungi beberapa negara belum selesai. Setelah Singapura, kini saatnya aku pindah ke Malaysia, tepatnya Kuala Lumpur.


Niatnya si naik bus malam dari Singapura ke Kuala Lumpur yang menghabiskan waktu sekitar 4 jam, tapi ada pilihan lain untuk bisa langsung ke Genting Highland dengan lama perjalanan sekitar 5 jam. Bus berangkat jam 11.30 malam, tapi kami janjian dengan pihak bus untuk datang kembali jam 11 malam di Golden Mile Tower, tempat bus memulai perjalanan.

S.E.A Aquarium

Laut,,,, aku selalu suka laut. Biru sebagai warna latar dengan berbagai macam warna cantik ikan-ikan, karang, dan berbagai macam makhluk laut membuat aku selalu suka suka dan suka pada laut. 


Hal paling menyenangkan ya nyebur di laut, merasakan seluruh tubuh basah dengan air asin laut. Tapi, ada kalanya pengen juga berasa nyebur tapi kering. 
Mana bisa? Bisa! Kan ada sekumpulan orang yang nggak punya laut bagus tapi pengen bisa menikmati dan belajar tentang laut. Salah satunya di S.E.A Aquarium, Singapura.


Masuk ke dalam S.E.A Aquarium berasa masuk ke dalam laut. Di kanan kiri ada berbagai macam hewan laut berenang kesana kemari. Aquarium ini menceritakan tentang kondisi laut di Asia Tenggara. Semuanya menyenangkan dan asik. Sayangnya, ada beberapa karang buatan [dari semen] yang ketahuan banget kalo ini buatan manusia.

Aquarium ubur-ubur yang didesain sedemikian rupa sehingga memberikan visualisasi ubur-ubur yang bisa berganti-ganti warna

Tentang buatan mnusia, yang paling menarik adalah satu sudut tempat berkarya. Di situ kita bisa membuat karang laut berwarna-warni dari barang bekas. Kreatif dan sayang bumi. Keren.


S.E.A Aquarium terletak di Pulau Sentosa, Singapura. Pada bulan Juni 2014 kami dapat tiket seharga 30 SGD dari harga asli 38 SGD. Kami beli di salah satu biro perjalanan di salah satu bangunan di daerah Chinatown. *maaf lupa namanya

I'm Proud To Be Part Of This Nation

There's always reason for everything.
I admit that.

So, there's reason why I have to be born in Indonesia and to be Indonesian.
When I was child, I ask why am I should live in this country. All I heard about this country that time, only the stuck things that can not be fix by us, the people, or can I call it 'wong cilik' in Indonesian bahasa. They told me that it would be so hard for me to live in the future. The competition between Indonesian that limited with people from around the world. And I wonder, 'is it true?'

After so many years pass by, I learn more about the country I'm livin, Indonesia. I try by read some books about this country. About how Indonesian and people who live in Indonesia life. About how Indonesian that live a life in other country. About Indonesian who known by many people in the world. I try to travel around my hometown, Semarang, Central Java. I learn about the weather, the condition, the culture.

Many years pass, many kilometers I had done, many smiles I receive. I have no about Indonesia, Nusantara better yet. There's so many question still around my mind. But, slowly but sure, I'm continously fall in love to this Nusantara.

Thank God, this year I can experience optimism about Indonesia. This year we really celebrate the democration and can call it democration party. We do it happily. I feel the peace all over Indonesia.

I just know so little, and there's more journey I have to take to know more about Indonesia, why am I born here, why am I called Indonesian, why am I live in here. In the same time, I also feel grateful to be born in Indonesia, to be called Indonesia, to live in Indonesia.

Dirgahayu Indonesiaku!!
