Last preparation ! (Part 1)

Posted by Fico , Tuesday, July 31, 2007 8:34 PM

Hahahah !! sounds really great ?!!
Maria staying at my house from July 24 until 31. We were doing our final preparation. It's quite scare me how we found that we weren't doing anything yet.. not literally.. but we haven't pack a things !!!
So we start shopping for our needs.
We bought tank tops, and shorts. Not much. I only have 3 new tops and one shorts. Maria have two new t-shirt, girlie tshirt (hahahaha !)
She just realize that i am the most careless child in my family about my looks. And when she stay she finally realized that my sisters are girlie girls, i mean they did what girls did (shopping, shoes with all models and colors, heels and flat, skirt, hair do, pedicure, blah-blah).
We had similiar problem, we had big waist and tight. I told her to buy long shirt that will cover her waist and tight, she did.
Hahahaha ! you must see her new shirt.. i will take the pictures of it for sure.
Ahhh.. and she got new tank top.. cute one !
I also just realize that most of my tops color is pink !
We also got our cup noddles. And few snacks.
At the end when we finished packing, my bag weight is totally 8 kg's and Maria's is 10 kg's !!
It was waaaayyy to heavy than it should. We had to reduce it, we know... but it mostly because the cup noodles.. took rooms in our backpack.
We reconsider to do packing one more time at the last day. I hope we could reduce the wight until almost half of our luggage weight now, because its too heavy !!!

Kegilaan berlanjut. Met datang Miss Maria, akhirnya dirimu juga memberikan kontrobusi atas blog ini. Mudah2an nih blog nggak tambah hancur, huehehehe!
Hasil dari "menginapkan" Miss Maria di rumah gue ? hehehe nambah berat badan bo ! nyokap gak tanggung2 masaknya, enak, kaga bisa ngerem.. mampus dah.. gue kasian sama timbangan gue ... tersiksa sam berat badan gue yang nginjakinnya per 3 hari...hehehe
Jadi gue berdiet agak mati2an sekarang.
Hampir seminggu kita keliling jambi buat perbekalan (huehehe kayak mau ndaki gunung aja rek !) pop mie, snack kayak coklat sama vitamin & obat2an serta sunblock.
Sama belanja pakaian lah dikit2 huehehehe....
Belanja pakaian sama Miss Mari sangat mendebarkan.. kita kudu ngelirik2 jangan sampe ke kasir dan bayar buat baju yang sama persis ! hehehe.. nyaris terjadi. Selera hampir sama, kaga suka yang ribet2, and punya kendala di paha sama perut and pantat yang membesar akibat kebanyakan makan. Bajunya mesti yang panjang2 biar kaga bikin heboh, dikira nyelundupin CPU komputer nanti di imigrasi.
Hasil perburuan barang2 berlangsung dengan baik dan kami teruskan dengan packing. Hasil dari packing ternyata agak mengejutkan. Walau semua makanan udah di bagi jadi dua rata, ternyata miss Mari backpacknya total 10 Kg pas ! sementara gue 8 Kg.
Gile bo !
Dikira ekspor makanan ilegal gak ya?
Tapi gue serem bangetr kalo bawa makanan pas.. maklum Thailand kabarnya rada susah nyari makanan halal. Bisa sih.. kalau di cari.. cuma limited gitu deh.. jadi mendingan prepare aja sebelum terlambat, hehehe gaya nya..
Kita bakalan coba packing lagi terakhir tanggal 19 nanti. Mudah2an dapat inspirasi bisa ngurangin bawaan. Sebab kata di buku2 travel katanya paling bagus kalau jumlah berat tas ransel itu 5 kg. Yehh.. ngerti sih.. hehe jadi kalau belanja bisa nambah..(ngerei aja ngebayangin miss Mari jungkir balik kebelakang gara2 bawaan tambah berat.. huehehe sori Miss Mari).
Will see aja yak !!

Intermezzo: Mimpi Aneh

Posted by Fico , Friday, July 20, 2007 9:53 PM


Hehehe... buat posting sengaja dalam bahasa Indonesia.. terlalu norak buat di publikasikan dengan bahasa Inggris.
Semalam mimpinya aneh bo ! gini kronologis mimpinya :
Mimpi dalam pesawat.. waaah gilaaa jadi juga gue berangkat !! everything is so perfect (perasaaan gitu deh). Pesawatnya oke, makanannya enak, pramugarinya ramah, yang duduk di sebelah cowok cakeeepppsssss (namanya mimpi bo ! jangan protes!!!)
Mikir: Maria mana yakk ? nyari2 ehh kok dia duduk sama om2 tuwir gitu (sekali lagi ini mimpi ingat ! yang ngimpi gue !!) mukanya bete banget. Hihihihi kacian dah..
Ngobrol2 sama tuh cowok yang bening dan tampan serta baik hati..
Dia bilang dia pawang ular (Whaaaaat??) di panggil kerja (emang ada pawang ular internasional gitu ?) gue cuma "ehhh..hehehe" magut2 (highhh.. cowok cakep gini pawang ular.. udaahh jadi pawang FIKA ajaaaaaaaa, huehehehe).
Ular apa aja yang di tangkap mas ?. Banyak katanya. Mau liat foto2 ularnya ? hehe.. ngga deh.. saya takut ular. Kalo kucing gak apa2 (bego deh).
Dia nanya mau kemana. Ke Thailand dunkss, jawab gue anteng.
Anehnya muka dia mengkerut gitu.. ini kan bukan pesawat ke Thailand.
HAH???
Ini pesawat ke AFRIKA,
HAH???
Trus tiba2 aja pesawatnya mendarat (namanya mimpi).
Tuh cowok senyam senyum sambil bawa tas ranselnya. Nggak percaya ? katanya sambil ngajak keluar pesawat, ke airport.
Tuh ada tulisan WELCOME TO AFRIKA lengkap dengan ukiran totem2nya sama orang hitam kayak pantat kuali.
Oh meeeee goooodddd !!!
AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!



Itu kejadian nyasar paling naas kalo benar terjadi... fiuhh.. untung bukan beneran.
Kalo ngga... hehehehe nggak bakalan pulang ke indonesia lagi deh.. ikutan jadi pawang ular sama tuh cowok aneh yang kerjaannya norak tapi bertaraf internasional.
Hehehehehehe...

Mandala airlines online

Posted by Fico , Tuesday, July 17, 2007 4:37 AM

Sucks...
Bad words but it was sucks...
I try to get the ticket online, the price for the one way ticket from Jambi to Batam is Rp 297.500.
10 minutes flight.. and i pay as much as if i go to Jakarta with 45 minutes flight.
Plus... i thought that Mandala online system just like any other international online booking, we pay half, and pay the other half when we go.. or pay with credit cards.. its not !
It wasn't fun at all.. when you know your reservation is automaticly cacelled 12 hours after you input it.
So what the use ??
I thought i could feel easy after getting the ticket a month before leaving, Mandala can't do that.
12 hours !! goddddddddddddd.. i am still at working site !!! isn't the online system suppouse to make things easier ????

Sigh !

Anyway i got the ticket. I call my sister and i got the ticket !!
For the same date, same flight, same price but different booking number ! how could that be ? sigh.

Mandala.. capek dehhhhh..

Wadaaaww !!!

Few weeks ago i just learned that the airplane ticket from Batam to Jambi is TWICE price of ticket Jambi to Batam.. how's that could HAPPENED ????!!!

AAAAAAWWWWW!!! aw..aww..awww

I try not so worry about it since i had someone who could book it with cheap price (??) but i doubt that he will give me cheaper price than the net offers.

I already told Maria about this, and also that we had to change few things, since our first plan, we're planning to go by Riau Airlines.. but the plane not fliy again to Batam now !!

So we will go by Mandala Airlines. Which is a better airlines (better food???)

Anyway.. since the flight were changed.. that's mean we will arrive in Singapore at dinner time (wondering where to eat at Singapore.. lots of choices..) how about at Clarke Quay ? huehehehehe !!

I also find an article about Indonesian driving license are accepted there ! yiihaaaaa ! hehehe.. i could imagine we ride a matic scooter around Thailand and make a mess (ho.ho.ho)

Maria still not accepted my invitation to write this blog.. we surely have a different point of view about things.. and it would be extremely great to see this blog.. i could i magine that !!

There's so many things happened at work and my personal life.. ugghhh.. i feel like i want to go now.. but i have to wait until next month ! I could feel the warmth of the sun.. the wind breeze.. the salty water.. blue horizon...

We will go yeaaahhh !! (hiksss...)

New back pack !

Posted by Fico , Monday, July 2, 2007 2:09 AM


Well.. this is not exactly the type of backpack that i just bought ! it was much bigger. I finally had my own 50 liters back pack, that made my mom wondering and ask "where do you go ? you seemed not planning to go back home aren't you ?" It's a joke, and i don't need to answer that (hahahahahaa !) The price that i got is Rp 99.000,- Extra cheap for a bag that could carry alot. I'm only considering about my back. I choose a thick support belt so my back wont hurt when i have to carry something that almost as heavy as i am. Bad things is, the back pack doesn't have a hard back support. But i guess i could manage that will packing my stuff correctly on it. Well.. just wait and see if the backpack works well... it sure will have the challange to carry extra heavy load !!

Online bookings for Thailand trip !! cheap !

Posted by Fico , 1:39 AM


Okay.. so we already set the dates, we booked few things already.. I think it’s a great deals. Just check this out !


Sing-Krabi (one way, Tiger Airways, one person) : S$ 56 (Rp 330.400)

Baan iyara hostel in Krabi for 3 days + airport pick up (two person, not incl. breakfast) THB 1450 (Rp 420.500)

Four Island half day tour with long tail boat (2 person including lunch, fruits, and bottle of water) THB 1200 (Rp 312.000)

Phuket backpaker hostel (3 days, 2 person, not incl. breakfast) : THB 1.200 (Rp 348.000)

Chiangmai-Singapore (one way, 2 person) THB 5.340 (Rp 1.548.600)


So far this is the amount of money that we already use, all from online reservation.

Still have to book lots of things like hostels at Bangkok, and Chiang mai, also.. flight from home to Batam !

We haven't book the ticket because the flight schedule change every month (quite frustating me !) it's not a good thing to book it 2 months in advance i think...
