Denyut Budaya Peranakan di Pasar Lama Tangerang

Standard

Siang itu matahari teduh di balik awan ketika saya dan teman-teman sekelas di Cultural Studies berkunjung ke salah satu kota satelit Jakarta, yaitu Tangerang. Lebih tepatnya kami mengunjungi daerah yang disebut Pasar Lama Tangerang. Lokasinya sekitar 10-15 menit berkendara menggunakan angkutan umum dari stasiun Tangerang.


Orang Cina Benteng sembahyang leluhur ya di Boen Tek Bio.

Daerah Pasar Lama Tangerang juga dikenal sebagai salah satu pecinan atau China Town yang eksis di sekitaran Jakarta. Di sana berdiri klenteng Boen Tek Bio yang menyandang gelar klenteng tertua di Tangerang. Dibangun pada tahun 1684 dan terletak di antara dua kelenteng yang menjadi “saudara”-nya, Boen San Bio dan Boen Hay Bio, Boen Tek Bio menjadi pusat kegiatan ibadah masyarakat Tionghoa di Tangerang. Konon, ketiga kelenteng ini membentuk satu garis lurus yang membentang sepanjang 16 kilomenter!

#ThaiTrip, Here is the Tip! – Lodging in Chiang Mai

Standard

Traveling and lodging come in one package, right? So, here was the inn which housed us in Chiang Mai. Since the four of us were not fussy on having the great-with-stars kind of hotel, so we went for those which offered excellent values–meaning: great location (near the food and transportation!), basic facilities: B&B! (we would rather bed and bathroom than bed and breakfast!) and, since we did mind our budget, great price (read: cheap, cheap, cheap!). If you are looking for the same things, you might want to check this out.

The driver of the day! We were proud of ourselves hah!

The reason we rented motorbikes was because we wanted to move around freely rather than getting rushed by and not enjoying ourselves if we took some tour. The destination we wanted to go was Doi Inthanon National Park which housed Thailand’s tallest peak at 2,565 metres above the sea level!

Candi Muaro Jambi: An Almost-Neglected History (Jan 24, 2014)

Standard


Me at one of the temples in Candi Muaro Jambi compounds

The place is around one-plus hour ride from the airport, assuming the average speed of the vehicles is 60-70km/h. That time at the entrance we were told to pay IDR 15.000 for entrance fee. It was not clear whether that amount was meant for 3 person (IDR 5.000 per person), or two motorbikes that we rode. We were not given any ticket whatsoever, the guards just let us inside with a smile after we paid. We were not given any brochures or maps, too. Those guards said that they had been out-of-print. Oh, well.

So, the smoke that plagued the center of Sumatra weeks ago, which I heard has subsided now thanks god, reminded me of my trip with dad to a place call Mahato in Riau. Was there on 27 February-1 March, 2014. This post was a midnight contemplation to get my mind off from other stuffs, so enjoy.
