Camping on Ranu Kumbolo Lake

After my boyfriend went up to Semeru peek last week – it’s the highest mountain peek on Java island – I thought I might reopen some of my pics where I’ve been up there last year.. oh well, I didn’t make it to the top tho, lol!.. Just less than a half way up, I already gave up and decided to stay on the lake in the middle of somewhere on the mountain area..

That was pretty amusing as it was the very first time I planned on going up such high things.. uhm, mountain I mean.. Stuffs already packed, gears already prepared, and food already set up. But the fact when we’re on the real spot, we’re totally fucked up muahahaha.. I was like barely walk and probably had my zombie look-alike even for half way up!!.. couldn’t imagine more what would I be if I insist going up back then.. I might do some mountain slides aka rollinng fall down to the valley , duhh!..

Oh well, I just wanted to share those breath-taking views 😉 Ranu Kumbolo lake!!!..

and my favourite spot where I shouted over and over and heard back those strange voices from any animals (?)… anyway, it’s just mesmerized me!!..

unbelievable scenes and moments away 🙂 can’t ask for more than those tranquil phases… ohm…

ah, I might introduce you some person who managed the trip went very well up there. It just me being over self-confidence and bet that I could beat Semeru peak, while everybody else could make it up there.. oh well ,I might not a mountain person and I chose to stay on the lake and did some dip there hehe..

Here’s the link that you might want to check if you want to hike Semeru mountain 🙂

JATIDAYA – Malang Tempo Doeloe

Every year here in my city, Malang, there’s annual festive to celebrate the anniversary of the city which held around May. Near the end of the month, there’s always a street festive where a long road closed and changed into old traditional setting with colonial touches. And often, this festive held for few days with many traditional attractions.. for sure, it’ll be such a mass crowded on the street, ugh!..

And for this year, it is not only a usual festive like those years, there’s also an action to develop Malan ginto heritage worl site which later will be put on the queueue list for World Heritage Site nomination. And this project called MALANG JATIDAYA

on this project, Dwi Cahyono as the one who submitted Malang as the nomination, asked a thousand volunteers to repaint and clean up some old colonials building along Kayutangan street. Which I’m sure all people who managed this project to succeed definetely are genius people, as they know and realize how to maintain those heritages sites that left by the time!!.. it’s a matter of being aware tho..

people came from different communities and backgrounds, young and old, students and politicians. They are all among those whom aware and willing to spend their time on taking care things surrounds them which probably had left behind or left untouched.. and then, time to paint the wall!!..

and even people who passed by the road interested to know what was going on… or just asked to get captured.. ayayay

oh well, we’re simply in love with our own city, yay!!!!!… hugs for everyone who manage their time to get involved on this project 🙂
