Aerosmith night at The Rocks Cafe

Last night when i ready to sleep, my friend ring me and ask me to go to the rock cafe because that night they held an Aerosmith night event.

Actually i feel slack to go since i already laying in my bed, listening a lullaby song and moreover tomorrow is a work day, But then my boyfriend ask me too and my friend insist me so i go.

The Rock cafe is a bar with live music, placed at basement floor Grand Flora Hotel Kemang South Jakarta. It was established and owned by Ahmad Dhani, one of Indonesia's top musician.

The entry ticket valued Rp 100.000,- included one glass of beer or soft drink. The opening act by a new comer band, i don't even remember the name of the band, they play a music sounds like pop music, something like Sheila on 7 band with a little masculine touch. After that, the second band are 'Janice', it's a band with a 2 kids housewife as a singer and Janice is name of the vocalist. The last one before 'Aerosmith' ferformed is another band.....i don't remember the name too, it's a band with 1 male vocalist and 2 girls vocalist , they play the best of you by Foo Fighter and Genie in the bottle rock version. Overall, the worst ferformance is Janice band, i have no idea why the event organizer choose a band like Hannah Montana band (with an old lady as a vocalist) show at a Rocking cafe.
From second band until the third band, the audience start get bored and snappish, they start yelling and ask the band to stop singing.

Fortunately, the last band are quite good, it's a mix musician from several top band in Indonesia, like Jikun /RIF, Adi Powerslave, Ipang, etc so i'm not really upset. First song was ruined by a bad soundmixer, but then the sound man can encounter the problem. They played, Amazing (my favourite), Jaded, Crazy.......yeah i think they are good enough.

Sisterhood of the traveling pants

Yesterday i watch a DVD titled 'Sisterhood of the traveling pants', it's a movie about friendship between 4 girls who their mom was have a prenatal therapy in a same place, and they were delivered on the almost a same time.

The story began when they found a pant in a vintage store, the weird thing is that pant is fit to the four girl even though they are not in a same size body. Then they decide to wear the pant for a week during their summer holiday and pass it to the other with a story when they wear it.

First turn is Lena, she go to the Greek to see her grand ma. While she wearing the pant she met a young and handsome Greek who was her Grand Father and that boy Grand father was be enemies.
Second turn is Carmen, she go to met her Dad, and what she found is such a shocking circumstance when she see her dad was almost marry a women with 2 teenage kids.
Then Tibby, Tibby stay in her own home during holiday because she need to collect some money to buy a video recording set. While she working in Wallmans she met Bailey a 12th years old who was fainting, Bailey has a leukeumia, she pass away afterwards.
Bridget, her mom was pass away a few years ago, in a summer camp she just realize that she really need her mom for something she couldn't talk to her dad.

I don't know why every time i watch a movie with a family value inside, i always cry loudly. I cry when Carmen angry to her Dad, i cry when Tibby and BAiley talking in the hospital, i cry when Bridget miss her mom, I cry when Lena standing alone in the beach.

Why i so sensitive? Maybe because actually i had their feeling too, i do missed my Mom, I do missed my best friend, i do loss my Dad.....Sigh

Share your feeling

Devita in her blog talking about a healthy relationship is if we can share our feeling to our spouse. I think i agree about that......

But for me, share a feeling is a hardest thing in the world.

Currently i have a boyfriend, but i can't talking about anything to him, especially when i feel so sad, i have no courage to tell him.

Yesterday he tell me that he just get a sms from her ex girlfriend who is tell him that she's gonna married soon, and he tell me that he feel so sad to hear it. Actually i feel shocking about his sadness and suddenly i feel so sad too, i wonder how can he tell me that he feel so sad about his ex-girlfriend marriage. But i don't even say something to him, i just hearing his voice on the phone and start crying without a sound, only a tears fall down from my eyes and keep my voice as normal as i can.

Until now he don't even know about it, we keep talking like usual, but deep in my heart i feel like i'm losing something, i feel like he don't really love me, he is not really want me, maybe deep in his heart he still want his ex. And honestly it's reduce my love to now, he go to another city for a couple days, i don't even feel miss him or something.

I know is not a healthy relationship anymore, uuuuh can somebody help me to be more

Health Insurance

make money on line

Think for the best and prepare for the worst........

I think it's a good idea when we think about an insurance, because sometimes maybe we feel dislike to pay the insurance premium considering we aren't need it at current time.

But we don't know what gonna happens next time, maybe we suddenly get an accident or something, then we have to go to the hospital and get an expensive treatment. And when it's happens maybe we'll feel sorry that we don't have any health insurance.

I feel in a fit heath, so why i have to pay any health insurance? most people maybe will think like that,
In Indonesia health insurance was classified into 2 kind, collective (group) and individual. Individual insurance appropriate for your self or family. And collective are an insurance which given by company to their employe. The more persons colleting in one company, the cheaper premium that company have to pay.


Commomly treatment or program in helath insurance is outpatient, inpatient, birth delivery and dentist.

How to counter anchor url cannot be found

Man....i really feel glad when i know how to submit a post exchange and without find a text 'Anchor url cannot be found'.

The way out is so simply as a ABC, just put your URL link which already reserved by Smorty to your post.....then write your review.....Voila!!!!! it's work.........


Busway is a mass transportation facility for Jakarta dweller, it's a bus with gas as a fuel, they have an independent track which can't use by another vehicle, also renown as Trans Jakarta. A bus rapid transit, it's modeled from TransMilenio which already succeed in Bogota, Colombia.

Busway came from Sutiyoso (former Jakarta's governor)idea, at the first release, Busway was served from Blok M (a main sub terminal in Jakarta) to Harmoni, the route called as corridor. Furthermore Busway also develop more corridor like Ragunan (Jakarta's zoo) to Halimun, and Kampung Melayu to Ancol, Kampung Rambutan to Kampung Melayu, Pulogadung to Harmoni.....and so on, i don't know another 2 corridors.

For this busway you only have to pay Rp 3.500 per corridor. I think it's worth because, for example you living in Kampung Melayu and your office is in Sudirman street, instead of driving your car with hard traffic everywhere, better you choose Busway where you can only sit in an air conditioned bus and in 30 minutes you'll come to your office. Although you have to transit from corridor Kampung Melayu to corridor Blok M - Harmoni.

Monetize your blog

working online

Something interesting about blogging is you can express your feeling and can get money, all at once. Even until now i still can't get money yet from blogging i still happy for this.

And a blog which talking about marketing and money service like this are really helpful. for me, they are really smart and always want to try a new experience and share to the other. I can enhance my knowledge and ability in blogging and how to get money from this through another blog.

Along ago, i don't even really believe that we can really get money online, but then i try a PTC (paid to click) sites........four months later i get paid, $ 5.12 is my first money from internet. After that i feel so addicted in digging dollars from the internet.

I searching from the testimonial from another netter, how they get money, and there's a lot of things that we can do to get money, but yes we have to be carefull because there's also a scam sites which never pay you.

Travel and reverie

What is your reverie travel?

Maybe there would be so many answer, even for me, there's still so many answer, sometimes i will answer a travel with a lot traveler check in my pocket, which i can spend it all in so many boutique in Milan, London or Paris, stay in five stars hotel, riding a luxurious sport car......or maybe, travel with a back pack, take a bus and go around the world. It's all depend on my mood hemmmm.

But actually i never had a luxurious travel like i mentioned in paragraph above, moreover i never go travel for vacation he he.....yea that's right. My first travel outside my island (Java) is going to Makassar (South Sulawesi, for a student conference, my college sent me to that congress as a participant.

Then next travel is going to Banjarmasin city (South Kalimantan), for a visit to my sisters funeral, and i think a funeral visit is not a fun reason to go anywhere in the world.

After that, i go to Banda Aceh (Nangroe Aceh Darusalam), to stay for working in a couple months.

Well so, i never had a dream travel......a reverie....not like ester who had a lot of travel and having fun on it. Something that she can share in her blog.

But maybe i can illustrated something about the city i've ever traveled, maybe for an alternative destination reference.


This city was also called 'East Indonesia Gate', because it's the biggest city in east Indonesia. They have so many memorial place, like Benteng Ujung Pandang or also called Port Rotterdam. it's a historical heritage from South Sulawesi kingdom (GOWA) at 17th century, in 1667 Gowa empire was defeated by Dutch. This fort was built by Tenth Gowa king 'Imanrigau Daeng Bonto Karaeng Lakiung' also famous as Karaeng Tunipalangga Ulaweng. At Dutch overrun, this fort was rebuilt and change the name into Fort Rotterdam.

The most famous place is Pasar terapung Muara Kuin (Floating market Muara Kuin), it's a place where buyer and vendor stay in their jukung (a name of a boat) while their doing transaction), this market was built more than 400 years ago. Until now they still doing barter, or called bapanduk in local langauge, beside off course a regular transaction with money. Maybe one day they'll do modern transaction with Visa or Master, who knows?

Laskar Pelangi the Movie

My Piece of Paradise

I would to thank you to somebody who create movie, a long time ago. I can't imagine how is life without a movie, how we'll spent our spare time?

The latest movie that i watch is LASKAR PELANGI, this movie is a visualization from a novel with a same title written by Andrea Hirata.

It's talking about 10 kids who is living in Belitong Island and studying in a poor school named Muhamadiyah elementary school. They all came from a poor family who live in Belitong island, somewhere next to Bangka Island near West Sumatera. Most of their parents was PN Timah labour (a former great government company), i have no idea is PN Timah is still there or not.

Actually it's a true story about Andrea Hirata, he is a poor kid who had a illiteracy dad, fortunately his dad sent him to a good school although they are poor, he had a great teacher named Ms Muslimah who struggle to teach event though she had to teach all of them by her self.

I already read the novels, it's a tetra logy novel, from first book (Laskar Pelangi), second book (Sang Pemimpi) and Third book (Endersor), the fourth book not released yet, uuuuh i can't wait to read this one.

Now i heard the Indonesia President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono watch the movie, and many government official also watch this movie too and make this movie as a reference to develop Indonesia education.

I really really love to watch a movie, and i really really proud if i see Indonesian people can make a great movie, like this one.

Talking about women

secret womens business

Women always love talking about women, do you?

I guess so......because a lot of thing can talk about us. We can talk about cosmetic, health, hobbies, dating, fashion. I'm so glad I was born as a girl, because so many beautiful things was made for us.

Let see, jewelery.......i think most of girl in the world love to wear a jewelery. from Cleopatra to Britney Spears....i think they love to wear them. And so do i, i love platinum jewelery or silver, especially with minimalist design. I love wearing pendant mostly. And then cosmetic, hemmmmmmm if i had a lot money, like 5 million rupiahs each month to spent for cosmetic, i would love to spend it all. Unfortunately it's wasn't.

Something i know about cosmetic is, we always burnt up to try something new, something which advertised on the magazine or television, most Asian girl love a white skin, that's why whitening cosmetic is really demanded here. But now i just realized that, white is not necessary anymore, but being healthy skin is more more important.

And it's looks like a never ending story on this. I was born in Bandung city (about 100 miles to Jakarta) which is famous with pretty girls who loves to wear a fashionable things and have a pretty look face. We had so many way to find out a cute fashion which on trends with affordable price, like hunting the discount, or imitate the branded fashion (Ups!!!)......

Indonesia Stock Exchange Suspend

Wednesday, 8 October 2008 BEI has suspend the stock exchange at first sessions. This is the very first time for BEI since 11th September.

Stock authority decide to suspend the stock exchange and waiting for the evaluation effected from international and regional stock exchange.

I think, the reason why BEI decide to suspend is not really clear, or maybe because i'm not really clear in stock at all?

When it's suspended, IHSG = Indeks Harga Saham Gabungan (Jakarta Composite Index)fall 10,38 percent to 1.451,669.

Until Friday, the suspend is still turn on.

The blog addicted

Jsprik's weblog

Why blogging are so addicted???
I think because you can talk everything you want to talk about, you can express any of your feeling.

I see a lot of people talking about their family, friends, their job, hobbies.......and sooooo many more in their blog. And is it usefully for other blog reader? yes i think so. Because it's happens to me, when i need to know about something, let say when i feel so interested about green peace community (the community that i always want to join in), i start searching from the internet, and my search engine mostly will searched blogger who write about their experience in green environment. And for me, something like this is more reality than a documentary movie.

Yea i think, this is the point what i love about's more realistic than any commercial website.

It's look like watching a reality show on TV, when we watch a Kardashian family, or Lohan, or the Carters, i think it's some interesting TV show.......another different kind of TV show, beside news, soap opera, quiz. It's really enriching, and entertaining.

Another blogger loves to monetize their blog too, and i guess it's really fine, hobby makes money, it's quite cool.

So guys, keep blogging,

I Love blogging !!!!!!!!

Visual basic

free visual basic tools

Actually i don't know very much about visual basic, one thing i know about visual basic is a computer program language to build an application. We using algorithm, logic on how to apply these to a programing language.

Lately i've heard about VB+ViMaker32 (Visual Basic Virus Maker). From what i search in the internet, VB+ViMaker32 is a software which built for making a computer program which based on security. This software is an editor which containing codes to running an action according to given code. This software could make a program (for security)with purpose to testing on computer system, change system management, also as a malware removal with any additional modul/plugins.

This software could do a simulation malware attack and testing system endurance to malware attack and could refresh a system which already changed by a malware.

Even this software is labeled ‘Virus Maker’, doesn't mean that this software only can make a malware, this software also could be used to converse existing and active malware using ‘Malware vs Malware’ technical so you can using this software if your anti virus could not detect or delete active malware

This software was made using ‘Visual Basic’ language program, to running this software and the program that made, you have to have a Visual Basic runtime file in your system file runtime : MSVBVM60.etc. Software is a replacement for similar program which released before: BCVCKIT32 (Bla@ck Cyber Virus Cre@tor Kit). This software has revised and name changing starting from : MesMew Virus Compiler (unreleased), V-Rez@constructor (RC01) and the latest VB+ViMaker32.

Property Valuation

Mortgage and More Blog

In Indonesia, we are not familiar with mortgage, especially in real estate and property field. But there's something we can talk about real estate and property, that is VALUATION.

Actually i was graduated from Architecture and now i'm currently working as a facility management for an international bank here in Jakarta, but one day a head hunter website sent me a job opportunity to be a valuation officer in a Malaysian Company.

Since i have no experience about valuation, so i start searching about these. And what i found is, a property valuer (someone who is doing valuation) is someone who give an appraisal for a property, Valuing real estate calls for precision and knowledge. Proper interpretation of available data, someone who had a formal training and qualifications before.

Suddenly i feel so interested with this profession, then i start searching about this profession. Then i know that in Indonesia there is an association for them, it's call MAPPI (Massyarakat Profesi Penilai Indonesia) and in North East Asia there AVA (Asean Valuer Association).

There also a formal education for them, it's a Master Degree at Indonesia University in cooperation with MAPPI.

Since i have a plan to move to Kuala Lumpur next year so i search a formal education about valuation in Malaysia, then i know that there's a Real Estate Master Degree which learn about Valuation and anything about property in University of Malaya.

Elling Bra

I've heard about elling bra from a community forum in the internet, just because of the testimony from user i burnt up to try. So 3 months ago i buy this bra.

How this bra is working? it's about the construction of the bra, they collect the fat around your breast into the cup (where they have to be) and keep them there. So day to day the fat which collected will make a squashy breast to a chewy breast.

And you know what, after 3 months usage, it's really works. Actually my breast is still ideal, but this bra make my breast more voluming.

And now, i need to change the cup because it's not fit in anymore, it's mean my size it's getting bigger, YUHUUUU!

Beard and Gamis

There's a funny story about beard,

In Indonesia, a man with a beard, especially when he wearing a gamis (an Arabian style shirt), people will conclusion in a rush that he must be FPI (Front Pembela Islam), an organization in Indonesia who always fighting pornographic, adulterous, alcohol and something bad like that.

For a bad girl like me, of course not an interesting moment if i have to get in touch with them.

Yesterday i was looking for a new kost (boarding house), somebody fingered me to a great house with modern minimalist style, when i see the house WOW!!! i like this, so i parked my car and my friend come out from my car first then go straight to the front area, but suddenly she turn back to my car, i wondering why. When i look toward, i see a man with a beard and a gamis in the front of the kost house.

I feel shocking too, i see sceptically maybe it's a FPI station. Actually i want to turn back too but i already park my car, it will look so not polite if i just turn back like that so me and my friend continue walking. The guardian greet us and let us see the room, during walking i asking about who is the man with beard and gamis, is he someone so religious. He answer that he is an occupant in this kost house, and actually it's not his habit to wearing gamis....and he said i don't have to worry, he he he must be understand that i'm freak. it's not about FPI, but i prefer to not get in touch with something too religious.

Well then i feel so lighten, especially when i see the room is so cool, an air conditioned room with personal bathroom and large parking area, i think it's the one that i'm looking for so long, and for this cool room i only have to pay Rp 1.600.000,- per month. This kost house also completed with a small gym, it's located at Cipete area, South Jakarta.

L is for Love and Loneliness

If the blog which i linked is tell us that L is for Lamppost, Lantern and Lotus flower......for me L is for Love and Loneliness.


Because for me Love and Loneliness is related, once i fall in love with somebody that's the time when i asking for more. I need him every time everywhere and his everything.

But as we commonly known, there's no everything everywhere and every time for us, not from the one that we love. And that the time when loneliness became a friend of your heart, loneliness will fulfill your daily life.

So, can you get the main problem is?

The main problem is, don't ever hoping and asking anything from the one that you life, so then you will free from hoping and loneliness. Then there's only love which will showering your heart and flowering your days. know it's a hardest thing in the world, to really love a man, you get to let him free and don't package him with any of your demanding.


If you have no idea to spent your spare time, just go to the karaoke.........and sing a song.

Last Sunday night I did karaoke with my friends at Happy Puppy D best Fatmawati South Jakarta. It's a karaoke center, quite comfortable in affordable price.

They are a computer based karaoke, unlike KTV Karaoke at Plaza Senayan which based on Television Karaoke which is a little confusing for me because i'm not familiar yet, in computer based, we can only read the song list on the computer monitor and pick it by a mouse click. In Television based, we choose at a television screen and pick it with a remote control.

Actually television based karaoke is one step ahead from computer based, but he he maybe i'm a technology stammer.

Things to make karaoke became so fun is :

1. Choose a cool friends, don't pick a friend who will dominated to sing, otherwise you will only dazed all over the time instead enjoy the karaoke
2. Choose a cheerful song, once you choose a sad song, the ambient will became full of sadness
3. Beer will help to rise warmness in the room
4. Snack ....... like chips and cookies is cool

Manicure Pedicure

One of my hobby is going to a beauty center.........

Last week end i try Mousse Salon at Cikajang street for manicure pedicure, this beauty salon was known as a good salon about 2 or 3 years ago, but i think now their popularity is not as good as before.

First the therapist put my feet at a warm water in a bowl, then she brush my skin with an oval soft brush, cut off my nail, feel off the dead skin around the nail and last massaging a lotion on it.

She do the same thing on my hand, but for my hand she put more attention so when it finish my nail became so shiny......uuh i like it.

For a whole day my hand and my feet look so gorgeous, but when the next day i do my another hobby (washing my own car, my shiny and charm hand back to their originally look, dull, dim and ugly.........!!!

Body of Lies

Yesterday i was watching this movie...........

It's a film stared by Leonardo DiCaprio and Russel Crowe, i like a lot this movie, and i think the theme is more valuable than another spy movie, like James Bond or something. It's talking about how United states work on Middle east, how they defeat terrorism, Al Qaeda......and then there's a Jordanian intelligence, entrapment.

Leonardo as an agent has to find Al Saleem, who masterminding bombing in Europe, a bomb which blasted in a peaceful cities, which killed hundred indecent people.

In this movie, you will see a different performance from Leonardo, who's usually play a romantic persons, here Leonardo dressed up like an Arabian, with beard and speaking in Arabic language. But this movie have a loooooooong duration time, about 3 hours. For a 'thinking' theme film like this, it's really weary........and for me actually this movie is not entertaining, but it's enriching my mind.

Over all, if you want to enhance your knowledge about intrigue and conspiracy, i really recommended this film

Like any girls or maybe peoples all around the world......i do like gossiping too, but when i read this linked blog, i found three rows

Great minds discuss ideas
Average minds discuss events
Small minds discuss people.

It's really awakening me, deep in my mind i always convince my self that i'm a smart girl......if it's true this mean that i should have a great mind, and a great mind not discussing people, they discussing idea.

But why it's a lot easier to talking people instead of idea? the answer is because we didn't need a great mind which mean a smart brain to talking other people.

For example, when we still in the high school, we gossiping most popular girl in the school, about her new hair cut, her boyfriend, her fashion, or even her maiden name in her family.

Then we came in to employment world, we start talking our colleague, who is a beautiful secretary, we talking about how short her skirt, her body language when she talking with men, or even her sex life.

I know that we'll never stop talking about other people if we didn't try to stop it.......actually this post is really open my mind......if i want other people think that i'm as smart as i think, i should try to stop gossiping other people, and start talking about my ideas. Hemmmmmmmm

Most Incredible LEBARAN

LEBARAN = Eid Mubarak
KETUPAT = Rice cake boiled in a rhombus-shaped packet of plaited young coconut leaves
OPOR = meat or chicken dish cooked with coconut cream and various spices.

Common activity in Lebaran day in Indonesia are Eid pray in a large field or grand mosque, silaturahmi, eating ketupat with opor, and then visiting relative home.

So in this lebaran, i try to follow that common activity, with a little mess everywhere. When my dad cannot reach Cirebon, so we go straight to Bandung, we arrive at Bandung at 2 PM, before we go my brother house at Bumi Panyawangan Cileunyi Bandung, we looking for somebody to accept our Fitrah obligatory alms, but along the way, we didn't find any. So we decide to go sleep first and continue it tomorow.

8 PM next day, i just woke up, the Eid pray is already done, so i missed it, then i go bath, dress up and eat ketupat with opor, hemmmmm yummy.....after 1 month fasting.

Then i go to my sister house where my dad is stay, forgive each other with my dad and brother, sister. Then go to my aunt house......and so on. Uhhh such a boring Lebaran day........

All those lonely night

Have you ever feel like this......

When you have no light to guide you
and no one to walk beside you

Now i feel that feeling, and trust's really hurt
No friend
No boyfriend
No family
to talk.......

Yes i have a boyfriend, yes i have so many friends, yes i have a great family.....but why now it's looks like a pale shadow, I can't speak my mind, i can't tell all of my sadness, i can't tell all of my dream.....It's looks like i'm standing at the highest tower in world, and ready to jump.

God, I really miss somebody who really cares and protect, who really know who i am, who really understand what I want, but now they all disappear, and now i only surrounding by stranger, stranger who's called boyfriend, and friends.

My bed room is now a sanctuary of my tears
All that i have is only all those lonely night.........

Ziarah = a devotional visit to a sacred place

Day three at Cirebon........

Early in the morning we go to the village which my mom's rest in peace. It takes 30 minutes from Cirebon up town to Sindang Laut direction....

Once we came to village we go straight to the grave, cleaning the grave from grass, watering the soil and take a pray for her....

After that we going to my grand pa's house. It's a big old house with wide yard and fish pond.....I see my cousins, my aunt.......

this is my last fasting day.......and it's quite hard, i feel so thirsty, hungry, limp.....uh it's must be because of the weather, Cirebon is so hot.

Actually we mean to celebrate the Eid Mubarak here but then my dad call from Bandung, he had an obstacle, his car was on strike on the way to Cirebon next to my sister house at East Bandung, there is no hope he can continue the trip, so we decide to follow him to Bandung and celebrate the Eid Mubarak there.

So then after have our last breakfasting, we go to Bandung. This time is my turn to drive, i drove slowly from Cirebon - Kadipaten - Jatiwangi - Majalengka - Sumedang but until Cadas Pangeran i can't continue driving because the track was to dangerous for me, it's a narrow street, ascending and curve, so i let my brother to drive again.

at 2 PM we arrive to Bandung, sleep at my brother home Bumi Panyawangan Cileunyi....Huhhhhh so weary

Brak fasting at Kasepuhan Cirebon

Day two at Cirebon.........

Just because we still feel tired, we mean to going around Cirebon town before we go to the cemetery.

We are still in fasting, first we go to Grage Mall, the biggest mall in Cirebon......and it's a 3 floor mall, with minimum air conditioner, now we are suffering because it's hot and there's nothing entertain us, like window shopping or something, because for us Grage Mall is really bored. And my laptop cannot connect to the hotspot, so it's completely bored.

Then we continue around, looking something for break fasting, first we choose Kanoman street but then we found that this street is too mess so we're moving forward to the front of Kasepuhan mosque.

At Kasepuhan mosque there so many food vendor, and the place is comfort enough for us. We choose empal gentong = a meat soup with coconut milk, Nasi Lengko = Rice with tofu, bean sprout, tempe, and soy sauce. Ketoprak = vegetables with peanut sauce, sop buah = fruits with syrup and ice, Teh Poci = tea served in a clay pot and lump sugar.

for all menus we have to pay Rp 102.000,-. Actually i don't mind with the price, but when i ask my brother who is Cirebon resident, it's really shocking........we have to pay empal gentong = Rp 15.000,- per pack which common price is Rp 6.000 - 7.000, Nasi lengko we paid Rp 10.000,- with common price is Rp 4.000,- WOOOWWW!!! So if we pay according to the common price, we only have to pay about Rp 50.000,-.......hemmmm well so this is Cirebon people........

The day of Mudik to Cirebon

MUDIK = going back to the hometown, mostly to celebrate Eid mubarak.

To celebrate this eid mubarak i mean to come to my Mom's cemetery, which placed at Cirebon.

Sunday 28th September 2008 8 PM, me, my sister, and 2 of my brothers start to go from my sister's house at East Jakarta. First we go to Jakarta - Cikampek toll, then we turn to the left to Pantura, i found that the traffic was normal, no stuck at many points. We take a rest at Cikampek, just because my brother feel tired already so i replace him to drive the car, so this is my first experience driving in Pantura way. Cikampek - Pamanukan Subang - Indramayu - then Cirebon. Yuhuuuu here we come Cirebon, it's takes 5 hours from Jakarta to Cirebon.

Along the trip i see somebody MUDIK by a BAJAJ!!! Bajaj = a three wheels vehicle with simple engine, usually used as communal transportation in Jakarta. Can you imagine it? and i see the Bajaj driver still wear his daily uniform, with towels in the neck and hat...he he. Another mudikers mostly using motorcycle, and the way they ride their bike is so miserable, harm another people and them self.

The first place to reach is my elder brother house at Perumnas Cirebon, we mean to take a rest here before we go to the cemetery which is take another 30 minutes more to the village.
