heyaaaa!! it really is been a long time since my last post. pretty busy recently but today i finally have a day on my own :)) now let me tell you about my fascinating trip with my class mates to the Island of Belitong, it was actually a school project named Tematic Project. If you don’t know about Belitong maybe you’ve heard Laskar Pelangi, the setting was at Belitong.
Day 1. May 21st 2013
we were told by the teachers to come to the airport at 7:00 a.m. as usual, Revo was the one who came ridiculously late. we took off about 9 i guess, using Sriwijaya Airline.
in the plane
after i had asked the stewardess for about 5 times, we were finally allowed to be in the kokpit and took photos there (Y)
in the kokpit
it only took about 30-45 minutes from Soekarno-Hatta to Hanandjoeddin, an airport in Tanjungpandan, Belitong.
at Hanandjoeddin. yes, we took photos everywhere.
after taking the luggage we’re separated into two buses. then we headed to a kind of hill where we could see the view of a beautiful beach from the top of it. from the view along the route to the hill and the words spoken by the tour guide, i could say that Belitong was still a very peaceful island, i mean if you go there you’ll find trees and grassland better than buildings, in fact the buildings there aren’t more that 5-floors-tall. and the traffic, oh my the traffic was waaaaayyy more empty than Jakarta, so i bet the air there was healthier too!
up on the hill
lunch!! whoop whoop hungreeehh!! and YES the foods were delicious, really. fish, meatballs, squids, shrimps, satay. i couldn’t ask for more, beside the restaurant had a not-bad taste of architecture.
at Rumah Makan something i forget the actual name
THIS is when a black dugong trying to be a mermaid, tragic
after our needs of food had fulfilled, we went to Museum Kata by Andrea Hirata. i was surprised when i first saw the museum, the architecture of the building was utterly out of my mind. In Jakarta we can find a museum in a good shaped building, or at least its building looks “kokoh”. well, Museum Kata by Andrea Hirata was, umm, more looked like a shelter. i don’t mean to offend. Inspite of its building, the museum was not bad, and i bet you will find it more interesting if you are a fans of Laskar Pelangi, a book written by Andrea Hirata who was born in Belitung. Now it wil be good if you see the pictures of the museum. -once again, no offend-
Museum Kata by Andrea Hirata
as it’s said that the story of Laskar Pelangi was written from a real story, so there must be a real Bu Muslimah too. Here’s the real Bu Muslimah -or not :p wether she was the real one or not but she was very inspiring.
me and Mayo found this looks like ubi kid :p
this is at Replika SD Laskar Pelangi
real work of inter 8 2015, destroying this pendopo
oh i forgot, before we went to Museum Kata by Andrea Hirata, the tour guide brought us to a dam. got no idea why they brought us there. for me it was only wasting our time to play at the beach.
a dam. yes, a dam -_-
from Replika SD Laskar Pelangi, we directly went to one of many famous beaches in Belitung. a scene from well-known Laskar Pelangi the movie was made here. oh yes i was freaking happy!! finally, touched down beach, a beautiful one. here we played water and sand. a pleased shindy came up when someone started to throw sand to other :D
we ended up covered by sands and water. hahaha it was kinda funny actually when some sand hit my eyes. at 6 pm the teachers called us to have dinner in a restaurant at the seaside. OH YES WE WERE GIVEN SEAFOOD!!!! who doesn’t like seafood??? after we had finished the dinner, we headed back to the hotel. we made a clip of video at the bus, actually the video had been uploaded to the youtube but now it’s no longer available :/
I want you to fight for me :/
