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. 


BUKIT BINTANG.

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.

KUALA LUMPUR CITY CENTER.

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.



MASJID JAMEK.

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.

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

KUALA LUMPUR CITY GALLERY.

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.




BATU CAVES

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.




KUALA LUMPUR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

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!

The perfect days.

Believing there are so many ways to be happy, and I keep wondering about the real-life paradise. It's like impossible to find a world version of heaven, but actually the nature just too great to be admired. At least, the Earth hide it best spots to be found by people. And nowadays, we can enjoy some of them.

My very favorite imagination is when I wondering my self be in an island which shine by sunshine so brightly and I let my feet touch the sand, then I see the very blue sea sparkling behind my sunglasses. I hear the most beautiful sound, and I run to the source. The waves. I also feel my body be covered by the gentle breeze.

An island, which offers so many beautiful nature offering, named Lombok is my favorites for now and years forward. Located next to Bali island in Indonesia archipelago, it known as the sister of Bali. There are many spots which can be found in both Lombok and Bali. There are Hindu temple, local culture, and of course the amazing beaches.

Everytime I visit Lombok, I never get bored when come again at same places. It is just makes me fall for many times. Even there not only beach which offer as the tourism spot, but I want to share my favorite the most, the Lombok's beaches.


SENGGIGI BEACH
This name has been famous for so long. When people heard the name of Lombok, they'll say that they want to visit Senggigi Beach. The beach itself  is located in western of the island. At sunset time, we can see the silhouette of  Mount Agung in Bali behind the sun.




This beachfront cafe is my favorite to spend the rest of the daylight with friends even family. They offer any kind of Italian food, and recently they open a homestay too. Located at Jalan Raya Senggigi Batu Bolong, Senggigi. 



THE CHANDI BOUTIQUE RESORT
Another favorite place to just enjoy the beach atmosphere is this resort named The Chandi. Located at Jalan Raya Senggigi KM 5, Senggigi.



TANJUNG AAN BEACH.
This incredible beach, oh just speechless, is located in southern Lombok. About an hour drive from the capital city, Mataram. But this one really should be noticed. And could be the most wanted place to visit. There will no regretful after spend time here.




KILA SENGGIGI BEACH RESORT
Having the rest of the day will just perfect when you sitting and eating Italian pizza in a beachfront restaurant. And hear country music also the nature sounds of wave. The sun makes the skin get tanning.

I chose a well-known beach resort in Senggigi Beach named Kila Senggigi Beach Resort. There were so many international tourists compare to local ones. The weather was very good, warm and also cool. The blue sea, white sand, and everything was just shining. I love to have short time for sunbathing, get the glowing skin, and enjoy the heat course.





Recently, the government really improves the tourism of Lombok. They totally put big attention to make Lombok and Sumbawa, another island in West Nusa Tenggara Province, known by people worldwide. And also be one of the world most wanted place to visit. There are so many travel agent that offers holiday packages in Lombok. Not only that, there are so many international direct flight to this island. It's just too easy to reach this real-life paradise.

I'm totally enjoy my holiday here, and will come back as often as I can. The completely perfection of days.


love,
