If you are not Indonesian then you might not understand the meaning of it.

If you are Indonesian but you share the same value with them then you might be offended. Then again, that is if you could possibly understand the meaning of it.

And for the rest of you out there. This is a simple truth.

My trip to Green Canyon, Pangandaran was continued with a forestry. No, it is not the science of developing, caring for, or cultivating forests. Although it was indeed an act of developing, caring for and cultivating forests. It was forest trekking. Yay!!!

Go Green!

“Americans have their Grand Canyon, here, we have Green Canyon!”

That was the tag line of almost every tour guide who promoted Green Canyon. It caught my attention. Of course! I had always been wanting to see Grand Canyon. Since it was not possible in near future, so I was considering visiting this so-called Green Canyon.

And, I did. I joined a backpacking trip to this place. The pack leader was Leo. I knew him from my last backpacking trip to Biawak Island. That’s another story that you can check here.

There were 18 of us waiting at the meeting point on Friday night. The traffic was crazy. As always! But the atmosphere was enthusiastic. There were actually other backpacking group at the same meeting point. They were going to Garut. So, we had to part with them at 10.30 PM. We were lucky that the mini bus we were going to use had broken down. Because in exchange, they gave us 2 mini vans that gave us more space inside since we were about to have a quite long trip in the van.

When strangers are better than friends

leave a comment »

Yesterday, we were strangers.

Today, we are strange friends!

I am missing my friends. A HEAP! …I am missing one, in particular. I miss squandering time talking nonsense and filling the air with laughters. I miss making stupid and reckless decisions running away from reality. I miss sharing happiness and sadness with you as you share your happiness and sadness with me. I miss us, sharing our dreams and dreaming together. I guess growing up cost a lot. And it costs you. That is when strangers are better than friends.

Photos? Botos!

leave a comment »

I love photos. They can take me around the world and beyond. They can even bring me up to the sky where dreams are built. But I am not a good photographer. I own a canon. But I use it rarely.

Until one day, I stumbled on this web, They promised me one amazing photo everyday. And so far, they haven’t break their promise.

It has always been my dream to travel around the world to marvel on God’s greatest work of hand. And photobotos with all talented contributing photographers, in a sense, help me to get a glimpse of my dreams.

They took me to China.
