Beautifull Sunset at Teluk Kiluan, Lampung, Indonesia

Trip this time, I went with my office friends. The Expenses incurred per person Rp.850.000 (include travel from Bandar Lampung-Kiluan @ Rp 470,000, plus Jakarta-Kiluan round-trip bus ticket and Ferry boats ticket VIP upgrade Merak-Bakauheni). Actually .. is practically backpacker or not .. haha .. please just read it, ok? .. kekee .. 😀

FRIDAY, 23 AUGUST 2013
We leave from Menara Kuningan, Jakarta at 08.00 am. Arriving at the port of Merak 11:30 pm. We boarded the ship (KM Sakura) at 00.30 am and arrive in harbor Bakauheni at 05.30 am. Actually, the ship was been near Bakauheni at 2:30 am, but due to big waves, the ship can not move closer to the harbor. I do not know how exactly Ferry economy class ticket, because the committee already paid. If estimated, namely Rp 20,000-30,000 per person. On top of Ferry, we can upgrade the ticket to a better class of which Rp 8,000 per person. We will get a sharing room (sitting on the floor), use air conditioning. If you want a private room, we could rent for Rp 200,000 per room.

Bakauheuni Port View (take on Ferry)

Suggestion:  Ride bigger Ferry, because it will still be docked even though the waves were big (but longer queues). VIP upgrade Rp 10,000 per person (facility: overstuffed sofas and AC 🙂 ) but there is no private room. Better yet, if all board a flight to Bandar Lampung 😛

SATURDAY, 24 AUGUST 2013
We came out from the port of Bakauheni around 06.15 am, then we had breakfast, and were off again to Bandar Lampung at 7:20 am. We arrived at Bandar Lampung at 10:00 am and picked up by the travel to be delivered to Kiluan. Before leaving, there are Ladies who said, this is the first bus will leave for Kiluan. I immediately think .. How badly trips to Kiluan??

Sunrise at Bakauheuni, Lampung, Indonesia

It turns out .. Trip to Kiluan is quite smooth (initially), but is roughly about 30 miles closer to Kiluan, masyaallah. (Very) Large Holes on the narrow street (right side is the cliff, the left side is the gulf) plus fluctuates. The 30 km trip, it was like riding jetcoaster with duration of more than 1 hour!!. We arrived at one house (which has a travel) at 1:45 pm to switch to smaller cars. From here, about 15 minutes to the beach with a more severe streets and smaller than before (so I understand why we change to a smaller cars). Up on the beach, we crossed the sea with jukung (small boats that is a bamboo backers on each side) to the cottage where we were staying. We arrived at Cottage at 02.30 pm. Fiuuuuhhh …
Suggestion: Better to ride the jeep, another small car, or motorcycle, do not ride the bus if you do not want to get a heart attack!

After arriving at the Cottage, we immediately had lunch and getting ready to go Pulau Kelapa for snorkeling. Kelapa Island, it turns out, is the island which is located just across from our cottage (only about 3-5 minutes ride Jukung, if you want to swim, allowed too .. kekee). There, we snorkel until the evening, while enjoying the beautiful sunset.

When back home, already provided grilled fish that really big. The grilled fish was prepared by the the  cottage management. Just eat :D. A campfire is also provided by the cottage management, just lit the fire .

SUNDAY, 25 AUGUST 2013

At 06.00 am, we’ve been riding jukung to the Indian Ocean to see the dolphins. If late, dolphins already hiding. Journey to the habitat of dolphins takes approximately 3 hours round-trip. Although like riding jetcoaster second version (the waves were really big vs small jukung boats), but the misery will pay off by the fun of saw many dolphins. Following is Dolphins  video link that I uploaded to youtube.

Returning from there, we had breakfast and at 00:30 PM we crossed back to the village, followed by a trip to Jakarta at 02.00 pm. We arrived in Jakarta, precisely in the way HR Rasuna Said at 04:30 AM. Will you count how long? Yuuppp .. 15 Hours!!! > This is still tolerable than the time of departure, because we use a large Ferry to cross.

BackPacker to Lombok Island Day 2, Gili Trawangan

DAY 2

Oh yeah, I not included CP Baleku homestay yet before, please contact Mrs Eka 282C9E26 BB pin or number 081 803 600 001, if you want to ask about the homestay or travel package. Mrs Eka is a friendly person, has a very tasty cuisine, has cheap hotels, we could asked her to  taken us anywhere for free (short distance only): P.

Gili Trawangan, Lombok, Indonesia

In the Morning, I chose the fried rice breakfast menu, while Galuh omelete which are both very good taste. Mrs. Eka offer 3 gili packages  (gili Air, gili Meno, and gili Trawangan) all day, along with snorkeling for 2 people for 450rb including rental boats and snorkeling equipment. My eyes instantly sparkling, but because Galuh do not want to go snorkel, finally we get a discount of 50rb.

 

As a suggestion, before adventuring in Gili, you should buy food and drinks as much as possible, because the prices on Gili could be double or more than the price in Lombok (price close to the price exceeds Jakarta). Likewise souvenirs, better to buy in Mataram, in addition to less expensive, the choice also more diverse.

We departed from Senggigi to gili Air directly using traditional boat, the trip takes approximately 1 hour. According to the guide, to snorkel, the best place is in the Air gili, so, I immediately dived to bring bread to the fish. Nice fish,,, its color varies, unfortunately I do not have an underwater camera: (

Chicken Satay with Bali Sauce,Gili Trawangan, Lombok, Indonesia

 

Arriving on Gili Trawangan, we were loading stuff, because we plan to stay in Gili Trawangan Baleku homestay, same price with Baleku Senggigi homestay. It is a bit far from the beach (approximately 7 minutes), but Baleku provides rental bicycles with price 25rb per day.

After putting stuff in the room, we immediately  bike around gili Trawangan (which apparently tiring) and search for food. We ate chicken satay, the peanut sauce uniquely is blended  with Balinese seasoning and the plate was made by a super large cracker   (Rp. 15,000 per serving). Oh yeah.. Do not forget the frieds (Rp.2,000 per pieces ).

Tanjung Aan Beach, Lombok Island, Indonesia

Woooww… Finally I get the mood to write one of my adventure here…

This time I’ll tell u my trip to Lombok Island, Indonesia. This Island is one of paradise in Indonesia with white sand and clear blue ocean.

This trip begin when I was searching for random air plane promotion tickets from Jakarta (my own). Fortunately, I saw this promotion ticket.. I spend only Rp 700.000 or $70 (2 way). We need 3 hours by plane to reach Lombok Island. I take my college friend, Galuh Pratiwi to join this trip.

DAY 1

We departed on Friday from Soekarno Hatta airport at 10:50 pm, and arrived at Lombok International Airport (BIL) at 13:50 pm. Up there, we were looking for public transport or motorcycle (we planned to stop at the Kuta and Tanjung Aan beach before going to the homestay in Senggigi). That no single public transportation or motorcycle were hanging out there. As a result, we chose a local taxi.

Kuta Beach, Lombok Island, Indonesia

We returned from there about 16:00 pm, we back again to BIL because “we intend to ride DAMRI, but it DAMRI there were only after the plane landed at around 18.00 pm. In the end we chartered a car to Senggigi Rp 150,000. Hire car will be noticeably cheaper if we went with a lot of people, since I was only with Galuh .. I spend more money than it should be ..

Trip to Senggigi takes approximately 2 hours. We stayed at Baleku homestay in Senggigi area, costs Rp 200,000 per night for a room with air conditioning, and Rp 100,000 for a room with a fan. After putting stuff in the room, we immediately went to the nearby Pura Ratu Bolong, eating roasted corn (@ Rp 5,000) while enjoying the Sunset .. hmmm ..

After returning from Ratu Bolong Temple, We tasted the 1 Taliwang Chicken and Kangkung plecing (Mrs Eka cuisine that has Baleku, which was taste very good) chicken taliwang priced at Rp 25,000 per head .. One serving of kangkung plecing priced at Rp 5,000 .. Ice lemon tea @ Rp 7,000 .. very cheap, isn’t it?

Energy Resources

Finally we meet again in this blog …

Hmm … This time I want to talk about our energy sources ..

Energy sources .. it seems a lot of people are talking about .. if allowed to know, you guys do not know what our energy sources? I will try to mention a few, check this out!

  1. The most famous in Indonesia .. natural gas n oil. What do you think .. whether the advantages and disadvantages of kerosene conversion to natural gas that occurs in our homeland?
  2. Coal .. I know, coal  is only used for industrial power plant in Indonesia .. hmm .. that many were burned coal, will produce more pollution, right? (Finally, Global Warming anymore ..)
  3. Currently, the development of geothermal energy in Indonesia is being carried out, geothermal energy is heat Vapour directly derived from the subsurface, because Indonesia has many volcanoes .. it will have the possibility of large reserves of geothermal energy.
  4. The last, here it is the resources wasted long time ago .. Solar Energy .. but this source is definitely never ending .. but our technology is not yet at how to use this energy optimally .. I thought, it could have happened, the proof is solar-powered calculator. That means, just think about how to make the solar energy can generate electricity throughout the city. So, what do u think??!!!
