Ruwetnya Hat Yai

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

I went to Hat Yai last May, small  town in the south of Thailand. Once I arrived, I noticed that most of sign in Thai. I had no idea how to read it. Only few bahts and no signal for my smartphone to connect the internet, so buying local simcard wasn't a choice. Fortunately, I had saved some pictures of places to visit so I could ask to local people by showing the pics. One of my destination was going to Samila Beach, outside Hat Yai. After asking people using body language (thank God we could communicate in such way), I took ojek (motorcycle taxi) somewhere..I didn't know where this ojek took me, just trust the driver because he said that he is also a Moslem. Then he saw a car (or angkot) which could take me to Samila Beach. He told angkot driver to take me there. I sat beside angkot driver and took some pics while this angkot drove to Samila Beach. What I realized during the journey was motorcycles were everywhere. Something interesting both annoying was so many electrical cables all around city. I called it "RUWET' in Indonesia. Complicated, intricate, knotty, I don't know correct word to describe in English. Besides those cables, Hat Yai is a fine city to visit. Don't miss it if you take a tour in Thailand.

Kota Tua Jakarta

Kota Tua, Kota Jakarta, Indonesia

Kota Tua Jakarta selalu memiliki daya tarik tersendiri untuk dikunjungi.
Tak peduli semakin banyak gedung-gedung pencakar langit di seantero Jakarta.
Tak peduli macet yang tiap hari menghantui Jakarta.
Kota Tua selalu ada di situ, sebuah komplek dengan bangunan tua sejak jaman penjajahan yang kini dipugar menjadi berbagai musium bersejarah tanpa merusak keindahan arsitektur aslinya.
Tidak ada macet kendaraan bermotor. Semua orang berjalan kaki atau bersepeda sambil menikmati udara yang ramah dari polusi 
Tempat keluarga dan kawan berkumpul. Tempat pedagang asongan hingga penyedia jasa ramal mengadu nasib.
Semoga selalu lestari.

Pasar Ikan Talise

Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Fish Market at Talise Beach, Palu
Setiap malam di pinggir Pantai Talise ada pasar ikan hasil tangkapan dari laut. So fresh from the sea. Ketika itu kami menemani Opa Jose, turis dari Peru, untuk jalan-jalan malam di Palu. Dengan kemampuan English yang pas-pasan, kami berusaha menjelaskan jenis dan harga ikan. Modal nekat buat jadi tour guide. Menurut Opa, harga seafood di sini lebih mahal daripada di negara asalnya. Hmm..kenapa ya? Padahal lokasi pasar ini tepat di sebelah pantai.
