Day 2, April 17, 2013 | Garuda Wisnu Kencana
highlight: Garuda Wisnu Kencana, I Nyoman Nuarta, tips on renting motorcycle

We woke up quite early and were well-rested, thanks to the comfortable bed of Villa Puri Royan. About 8 o’clock we have breakfast, fried noodles for mom and toast for me, while we waited for the rented motorcycle, which the hotel staff had recommended to me.

The rent rates for the motorcycle is IDR 60.000/24 hours, a fair price I guessed, but I heard there were cheaper options. The lessor then took my ID card as guarantee and told me that the receipt they gave can be used as ID card replacement, in case of emergency.

Here are some tips on renting motorcycles or other vehicles:

  • Ask for a contact person/emergency number in case something happen with the vehicle on the road.
  • Please check on the tires, and ask for replacement if the tires look bare and dangerous for slippery road. Do check where you want to go and if the vehicle is capable enough to get you there.
  • Do a little test-drive.
  • It’s good to know what is covered in the fee we pay for the vehicle, such as vehicle replacement for flat tires, etc.
  • You can fuss on the rented vehicles but do it nicely. A good relationship with the tenant will do you good.
  • Be a safety driver. Wear a helmet if you ride on motorcycle, or put on safety belt if you drive a car. Don’t forget to check the license.

TTM Trip: Dufan, Jakarta (April 5, 2013)

Standard


TTM goes to Dufan, yeah!

Jadi pada bulan April 2013 silam, Ancol Dufan sedang mengadakan promo yang intinya harga tiket didiskon sebesar 50%. WOW! Kapan lagi coba bisa menikmati wahana-wahana di Dufan dengan harga yang sangat murah meriah?

Nah, usulan Debby untuk bersenang-senang di Dufan pun dengan senang hati diterima oleh saya dan Ina. Du-du-dun, diputuskanlah bahwa kami akan menjambangi taman rekreasi ini pada hari Jumat, 5 April. Kenapa? Karena weekdays mean cheaper and a quiet Dufan. Ha! Like that could ever happen in Dufan (indeed Dufan is quieter than other times we have been before, but it gets better and crowd-ier as the sun goes down).

Anyway, Debby dan Ina dengan promo Indosat Buy 1 Get 1 Ticket Free dan saya sendiri dengan promo diskon 50% dari Debit Mandiri, niscaya masing-masing cuma menghabiskan uang sebesar IDR 62.500 untuk HTM Dufan. Murah kan? Ditambah lagi kita bertiga masing-masing dapat complimentary tickets untuk menonton Multimedia Show Fantastique yang sungguh fantastik! Best deal banget promonya waktu itu, ibarat kata sambil menyelam dua tiga pulau terlewati… #eh hahahaha

Tuh Dufan-nya sepi banget, berasa milik pribadi x)

Birthday Trip P2: Baturraden (March 30, 2013)

Standard

Day two at Purwokerto was started with waking up early in the morning to buy morning snacks and ingredients for breakfast. What I loved from Purwokerto was the cheap price and delicious taste of food and snacks. It didn’t take much to have a full stomach here, and a happy tummy meant pretty much a happy-me, too 🙂

After a mouthful of breakfast, Septi and I prepared to go to Baturraden, a family recreational park located about one hour trip from Septi’s house.


Welcome to Baturraden Recreational Park!

when you have the time to have fun…

Standard

Ketika nganggur itu terasa begitu menyesakkan, saya menemukan bahwa memiliki banyak waktu luang untuk melakukan hal-hal yang-tidak-bisa-dilakukan-saat-terikat-dengan-kata-kerja itu menyenangkan. I can enjoy this kind of life too…Well of course ada perasaan was-was sebagai pengangguran hahaha… but unemployed doesn’t mean you are useless, yes? It’s time to explore!

Memiliki teman-teman heboh, ada banyak hal yang bisa dilakukan, seperti saya dan dua teman saya (Debby dan Ina) lakukan. Under the name of TTM Production, hari Minggu, 31 Maret 2013, selepas latihan Eisa (tarian asal Okinawa yang menabuh-nabuh tiga jenis Taiko), setelah makan-makan di Burger Blenger Barito, kita bertiga menuju Taman Ayodya di depan Hotel Mahakam; dan begitu narsis menerpa, begitu saja tercetus pula ide-ide gila yang akhirnya berhasil dituang dalam komik pendek yang berjudul Ubur-Ubur dan Air Mancur.

Dirilis pada 1 April 2013, Ubur-Ubur dan Air Mancur mengisahkan cinta naas yang terjadi di Taman Ah-Yoh-Dia…Penasaran dengan cerita ini? Klik cover komiknya berikut ini dan enjoy it on Facebook!

Semoga menghibur yaaa~ ;]

cheers, e.
