Menganti Beach

Menganti BeachMenganti beach is located in Kebumen. It is very very beautiful place. When I visited in there, the water was like a blue sky. not only, it has beautiful water but it is also has a tower, gabare, or in bahasa we call it mercusuar. But, it doesn’t work. In there, there is a TPI or a fish market. So, every morning, a lot of fishermen arrived to sell his fish. And, you are not only having a holiday, but you can also buy some fish. When I am in there with my friends, I buy some fish and we roasted together. So funny friends. In around the tower, we can see the beach and ships if there is any. The ship is not passenger ship but a ship carrying coal like a tanker ship. If you arrive on morning, you can watch sunrise.

From menganti, we went to Jatijajar cave. It isn’t too far from Menganti beach. Jatijajar cave is very good because there is river in underground. We didn’t take photo. We washed in the river. It’s so cool but fresh. Inside, we was around 20 minutes. After that, we would go back.

Pulau Sempu/ Sempu Island; The Amazing Trip

sempuEverybody has a lot of activity. Some of them even do their activity without sincerity. They always complain about some work problems, their exams, etc. they always feel bored. Therefore, they always do something fun to throw their burden. There are many choices to have fun, such as, watching movie, hanging out with friends, and traveling. Traveling can lift up your burden and make you fresh  on Monday and make you ready to do your job again.

I can give you suggestion the place that I have ever visited. The name of the place is Pulau Sempu (Sempu Island), Malang./ if you are in East Java, it is really reachable. It’s near from everywhere; Surabaya, Madura, Malang, Kediri, even Ngawi, and Banyuwangi. Malang is not that far to spend your short 3 days weekend. After arriving in Malang, you have to go to Sendang Biru beach for taking a boat trip. Less than an hour boat trip, you have to do walking trip about 3 hours maximum depend on the weather and situation. The track is not too hard but it is still challenging. Up and down way, until you heard the water sound, you will smile. About 5 until 10 minutes you will see a life. A wonderful life. The water is blue, the scenery is so beautiful, even the cloud looks very different when you have been there. Your trip is worth to do and that tired will be gone by itself. Maybe a little rubbish around there will make you little uncomfortable and may be angry, but it just decreases 5 percent the beauty of Sempu Island. You can build tent there if you want to spend a night in Sempu Island and go back in the morning. The boat will be ready for the customer.

Don’t call yourself as a traveler if you never try Sempu Island. Have a nice holiday.

Rinjani Summit taken from

Mount Rinjani is the name of the highest mountain in Lombok island. I climbed Mount Rinjani when I still studied in UGM in 2010. I like climbing mountain on that time. I just didn’t realize that Mount Rinjani will become my last mountain I climb. But it’s okay, I very grateful ever climbed the mountain.

Tell about Rinjani is like telling about one of hidden paradise in Indonesia. Why I can speak like that? Because the view of Rinjani mountain is very unique and unusual like the other mountains.

Death Penalty for Corruptors in Indonesia

indonesian-rupiahMoney moneymoney and money
Everybody needs money for survive or enrich their live with these things. So many ways that everyone earns the money, by the job, beg it, or steal it. It’s a lifestyle now for earn the money because in now day, you cannot live without money.
In Indonesia, so many case about criminals act such as Kidnapping, murdering, sexual abusing, and corruption. Corruption such as a high level crime in this country because the corruptor steal the money in a lot of number, it can be million until billion number, it’s not easy to steal the money for the corruptors because they need strategies and colleagues to earn that thing. Absolutely, there is constitution about corruption’s act.
Indonesia have law about corruption act, for the convicts for the example, they can be jailed or execution by the shooters. I agree about the execution law. That we know corruptor absolutely steal the public money which the money must distribute to the needy people, especially for the poverty.Corruptorbecome richer and poor people become poorer. This is the worst thing that happened in our country, the poor people can’t do anything except languish. Everybody have the right for live but if she/she meant to do bad thing it’s the right choice for the punishment. I think it’s better to kill 1 corruptor than seeing many poverty people dying in bad condition.
It’s a lesson for us that bad attitude will get bad impact, so do the right thing.
