bisa wrap sendiri setelah 2 bulan Akhirnya gw nggak cuma mendambakan, "Ahh pengen boxing deh" tapi beneran bayar buat boxing. Udah beberapa bulan ngintip instagram tempat boxing deket rumah gw, udah berbulan-bulan disuruh H buat berangkat, akhirnya gw mantapkan hati "Yaudah lah cobain dulu sekali" yang ternyata gratis trial ya. Karena baru pertama kali, ya gw mau coba yang basic aja.  Setelah satu jam, penuh keringat, gw langsung aja "Mas, bayar dong bulanan".  Gw bener-bener orang yang nggak bisa olahraga sendirian. Karena kalo sendirian, gw pasti boongin diri gw sendiri "Ah kan ga ada yang liat, udah ah nggak kuat" konyol. Tapi kalau ada minimal, pelatihnya, kita udah engap pasti mereka teriak-teriak "10 MORE SECONDS! AYO AYO BISA!!!" Kek malu lah kalau nggak lanjut, yekan? Plank dari cuma bisa 10 detik, jadibisa 20 detik, 30 detik, jadi 40 detik, gara-gara "AYO KAK BISAAAAAA!!!" Antara sebel, kesel, tapi ya seneng 😆 Jadi m

Taking Photos at The Onsen


I am not a big fan of Japan, at all. Then one day my friends asking me out to take some photos somewhere, some of them will be used for photo competition. Oh sure I said ok for this. I love to capture and to be captured lol. I let them find the place nearby. Then they found this new place. The Onsen Hot Spring resort in Batu. With Japanese theme. Not my type at all lol. But the point is spending time together with friends.

Tara.... of course I took my grandma with me and she said 'Oh wow, now I get a lot more of grandsons'.

They said it is a new resort with onsen, but onsen is not operated yet. It was free for grand opening, but now a lot of people coming so we have to pay for the entrance fee, basically for taking photos or eating in the restaurant. One funny conversation in front of the gate  :

Satpam : Halo selamat pagi pak,
Us : Halo pagi pak...
Satpam : ada yang bisa saya bantu (dengan posisi portal  tertutup di depan mobil)
Us : Ehmm apa ya pak ya? Gimana kalo dibantu bukain portalnya aja ya? Ini mau masuk ini mobil 😂

And then he explained that now you'll be charged IDR 50,000 to enter the resort. Either for taking photos or just coming for eating in the restaurant. It is funny for me, if we pay for taking photos then it will be okay because we consider to take photos like in Museum Angkut. But if we come for eating without having the feeling for taking photos there, then it would be so extremely nonsense lol. Imagine if we just want to come to the restaurant, maybe just to see the green stuff around then we buy a cup of coffee around IDR 25,000 and we have to pay IDR 50,000 for entrance, and also 21% of tax for restaurant. It will be the same as you got 2 cups of coffee from starbucks lol.


That is just logical thoughts of me. But they are for sure make it easy because they won't control everyone who are coming for photos or eating. I know it will be difficult to do.

Okay... here is the place is located close to Songgoriti. Hmmm it took about 1-2 km from the big street. Oh hey if you come for the first time to Batu and pass this road, don't bother with ojek guys there who will ran into you and offer you : vila murah mas, cuma 100ribu. Murah mas mbak murah 😂 (PS : the road is the same road as a 'red light district' villas).

Don't worry, after you pay the entrance fee, you'll get mizone and vit levite for drink (that I don't like to drink them at all). And a cute goodie bag (that is kept by my grandma haha). Afterward, you can start to enjoy the view and taking photos as much as possible you can.

goodie bag

You can also rent a kimono to wear, it cost IDR 150,000. To make you feels what it feels like in Japan lol.We also tried to sit in the restaurant at first, but then I bought coffee. The prices for F&B are not really expensive. That price is the normal price for this resort. But... like I said that I don't like Japan and officially with the foods, so we just end up drinking coffee. I dont know if we got to sensitive or how, but the waitress saw us and said 'oh please wait for the menu'. We waited for 15 minutes and she didn't give us the menu yet till koko Hen asking her to bring the menu. While we drank the coffee... we smell something like cow shit. So strong. Don't really know where it came from.

ada yang salah fokus dikirain koko Hend itu Ernest komika lol

effortnya ambil foto ini gede banget lho 

I took this one. I sell this guy. Any one to endorse him? I promise he is good at making pose and expression. I can be his manager lol

makasih koko rajin motoin plus bawain tas gw hoho

hp gw kebalik, mereka mana sadar 

because laughter is the cure 😄






One thing that really annoyed me, yesterday a lot of Harley drivers use the road, well you know how (most of) they behave while they are on the road, it was really annoying. SO MUCH. They kept following us till we have our lunch.

We also asked the room rate  for a night. The concept like a bungalow with two rooms like Japanese style. It cost around IDR 3 mio/ night. Well, it is a normal price for that price, and because the hotel prices in Batu and Malang is always two times more expensive than Surabaya and Bali.

We were there from 10 - 12. It was like a short walking tour for us, and long enough for grandma lol. And when we were back in the car, me and Adi try to count how much money they get every day 😂


  1. Tak kiro onsen tenanan mbak


    1. ketipu ni yee wkwkwkw
      temenku aja nangis2 ngira aku ke Jepang hahahaha

  2. Kok bisa mencium aroma kotoran Sapi, itu yang nyium mbaknya aja atau yang lain juga nyium? Hmm..

    1. Smuanya bau. Krg tau ya, bs jadi itu buat pupuk jg sih. Cuman agak menggangu soalnya dket banget baunya ke restorannya

      Atau bisa jadi ada sapi2 punya warga didekat situ.

[Book] Dunia Cecilia

'apakah kalian membicarakan hal semacam itu di surga?' 'tapi kami berusaha tidak membicarakannya dekat-dekat Tuhan. ia sangat sensitif terhadap kritik' Yap, sepenggal dialog antara Cecilia dan malaikat Ariel. Saya mengenal Jostein Gaarder sejak kuliah. Ehhhh 'mengenal' dalam artian kenal bukunya ya, kalo bisa kenal pribadi mah bisa seneng jingkrak-jingkrak hehehe. Jadi karena teman saya mendapat tugas kuliah membaca satu novel filsafat berjudul Dunia Sophie, saya jadi sedikit mengetahui si bapak Gaarder ini. Enak ya tugasnya anak sastra baca novel, tugas anak matematika ya baca sih, tapi pembuktian kalkulus -_- Dunia Cecilia ini buku pertama Jostein Gaarder yang saya baca, karena buku Dunia Shopie sangatlah berat berdasar review teman saya. Saya sih nggak perlu baca buku itu karena teman saya sudah benar-benar mahir bercerita. Jadilah saya sudah paham bener cerita Dunia Sophie tanpa membacanya. Novel ini atas rekomendasi teman saya, dia bilang kala

I Thought I Hate People, but...

Sanur ... but I actually don't! That I realized when I had dinner with H and he asked me, "Do you think she's married? The seller, she looks young but not too young."  So I said, "Uhmm I don't know and I don't care."  He then said again, "Yea I know, but I am curious about people. I am curious about what they're doing in life." That's when it came to my mind, "Wait a minute! I am also curious about people, but not their personal life like marital status, how many kids they have, what religion they believe in. I am curious about what they think about things! Ah that's why I love talking to people, no matter how introvert I am but talking to people still excites me." Then we finished our big nasi goreng together.  Looking back at it, I never really like people randomly talking to me when I was in the zone... Like zoning in and out talking to myself. But actually no, maybe it was only that we didn't sync so I went &qu

[Piknik] Prambanan lagi

Salah satu pesona Jawa Tengah adalah Candi Prambanan. Saya sudah 3 kali berkunjung ke situs warisan dunia ini. Candi yang terletak di perbatasan Jawa Tengah dan jogja ini selalu menimbulkan kesan mistis bagi saya. Terletak tak jauh dari jalan raya, sehingga mengunjunginya pun sangat mudah. Berbeda dengan Candi Borobudur yang letaknya sangat jauh dari jalan raya besar.  Ok, menurut saya ada 3 cara menuju candi ini. Menggunakan bus transjogja, taksi, dan kendaraan pribadi. Bagi yang menggunakan transjogja, saya pernah menggunakannya berangkat dari daerah kampus UNY, daerah Depok Sleman. 1 kali transit, 2 kali berganti bus. Dengan harga transjogja yang kala itu, 2014, seharga 3500 rupiah. Tapi sampai saat ini masih sama harganya, menurut info dari teman. Lokasi shelter bis berada agak jauh dari pintu masuk lokasi candi, mungkin kira-kira 500meter sampai 1kilometer. Kalau jalan, menghabiskan waktu sekitar 15-20menit. Bisa juga naik becak untuk opsi yang lain. Lagi-lagi, jangan lupa men
