Train Journey

The train journey

On my journey from Bandung, West Java to Yogyakarta, Indonesia, I took a 8 hours train journey. In 8 hours on the train, what do one supposed to do? Well, I could either read a book or just simply sleep, but figured out something more exciting to do. First, I saw the beautiful views like this from my window:
We're on a bridge!

What you get along the way, so stunning!

Than, I thought, I wanna try something more trilling! So I walked to the middle part of the train to find a picture went the train turns.

Walking between compartments

And the best thing about trains transportation in Indonesia, well, you can just open the door and look outside! I know it's dangerous, but the view was so stunning and I can't help myself looking outside and taking picture like this one while we were crossing a bridge. It was so trilling because there's so must risk, but on the other hand, this too pretty to not look at. I literally just hang on to the door and started taking pictures.  

I'm just hanging on the door and peeking out!

And when I looked down, I saw something like this, and my heart was ponding because of the height. And I'm on a moving train with the door width opened, just hanging by the door.

What a view!

The whole trip was exciting. We even stopped in some little cities and saw people running towards opened doors to sell something. What a nice trip I had!

The Beach

There's just something about me and the beach. How I even always misses to go to the beach. I guess maybe it's because I have lived my childhood living near the beach of Maroubra. I love the misty wind, the sand, and the rush of the sea water. And it's just that pretty combination of water, sand, wind, sun, and sky that I love that makes me always want to go the beach.

All you need to build a castle!

What a perfect thing to have! Coconuts!

The beach...

And this me in 1989, near our flat, can't believe how small I am! hahaha...
I miss that beach =) Want to go back there someday!

Vegetarian for a month

After Ash Wednesday last February 22nd, I've decided to be a vegetarian for a month. Well, this is some food I managed to eat wihtout meat. Honestly, it hard to get food without any meat in it. So sometimes I have to pick the meat out of the meal. Being a vegetarian for the first time it's not easy (specially if you really live meat and seafood). After the first week, my body feels like un-energized and a little fatique. But I managed to keep on going and not get sick. Actually, I felt more heathly because I ate more vegetables than usual. I'll maybe give it a go some other time. It's so refreshing.
