Fully Booked!

8:53 PM

  

Well actually this is kinda funny when I tried to remember again about it.

A day after I got married (22 April), we plan to go to Jogja. We planned to see HJ's friend, Flavio and his gf in Jogja. Flavio is based in Jakarta since 2017. Well he will leave soon again to another country, so we use this chance to see each other in Jogja. This is my first time to see him and his gf. His gf is pregnant, 7 months, such a beautiful thing on her belly. Flavio said to my husband, 'you see the belly bump? amazing right?'. akupun merasa, 'wow, hemm manisnya'.

So... we were all talking about going there by train but all trains from Jakarta to Jogja were fully booked. So does from Surabaya. So we decided to fly. I've check train from Jogja to Surabaya were available so we went back to Surabaya by train. We were all forgot that this is long weekend. 24 April is a holiday here. We were all focused on how to get there and how to go back, but didn't pay attention on 'where will we stay'.

...my husband distract me by asking me to make him a cup of ice coffee in the middle of writing...😑

21 April night, my husband thought that we can just book a hotel in Inna Garuda on last minute, so does Flavio. But then when we checked all the hotels around Jogja, they are all fully booked. We called about 10-15 hotels and they were all told us the same 'Ohh I am sorry, fully booked'. Also in Manohara hotel, a hotel in Borobudur complex that become our first destination. We're all like 'hell! we got the flight to go there, also the train back to Surabaya, but we don't know where to stay while we are there'. Kudu ngguyu tapi yo kudu nangis pisan kok geblek tenan ora mikir turu e nang endi

'Ok we have to stay outside Jogja I think, maybe we can stay in Solo or Semarang or somewhere'

Then I found a homestay next to Borobudur, in the midnight after we called 10-15 hotels. We said yes, we book it! We didnt even care about how it looks, how it is, and this and that, what we care only 'we have to find a place to sleep'. Thats all.

22 April we flew to Jogja from Surabaya around 4, and they flew from Jakarta around 4 I guess. When they came to airport, going for check in, dengan manisnya mbak petugas bilang 'Oh... your flight was yesterday'. Flavio gf book wrong date for the flight. So they have to wait and if they are lucky they can get the ticket. They were lucky, they got ticket to fly to Jogja and finally we met in Jogja!

starving! setelah drama seharian, ditambah macet dari bandara ke Magelang, ditambah bumil yang tiap 20 menit ngeluh pipis


Kita makan malam di Hotel Manohara, meskipun nggak bisa nginep disana tapi kita penasaran dan makan disana. Kondisi restorannya bener-bener sepiiii banget dan hanya kita berempat yang makan. Karena saking nggak percayanya kalo semua hotel fully booked, kita tanya ke petugas Manohara Hotel, Borobudur, 'Hi may I ask you if this hotel is fully booked for tonight?', dan jawabannya 'yes it is fully booked till 24'. Bener-bener sepi dan kita selese makan tiba-tiba tanya lagi ke staf yang lainnya, semacem 'mas, ini beneran fully booked ya?', dan jawabannya masih sama. Fully booked menjadi tema kita selama liburan di Jogja. Mereka yang bukan orang Indonesia heran kok bisa sampe segininya pas liburan panjang. Well... Jogja is main destination for people.

 

Moral valuenya adalah, jangan cuma fokus ke tiket penerbangan/kereta atau apapun untuk mencapai tujuan, tapi pikirkan juga dimana mau tidur, otherwise anda akan menggembel selama perjalanan 😂😂😂😂
