Jogjakarta: A Great Experience | Part 3

Ok, I think this will be the last part...hehe...I'll try to finish it all. Well, after the farewell meeting, we went back to the hotel and took a rest. That night mau keluar jalan-jalan lagi. We all plan nak pergi makan, so ramai-ramai jalan...dah macam budak sekolah la pulak...haha! So then, last-last satu group berpecah...ada satu group makan tempat lain, satu group makan tempat lain pulak. We all jalan along Jalan Malioboro...one group makan dekat mall, satu lagi group makan dekat warung tepi jalan. Tu pun sebab tak jumpa cari group satu lagi. Nak call tapi tak beli pulak sim card Indonesia... But eventually we regroup and sambung jalan-jalan. Merayau je la...hahaha...See Jogja at night...quite nice...but ramai betol orang melepak...adoyai....kat tepi jalan ramai la orang jual sate ayam....but Prof Zaki warned us not to try the tepi jalan sate coz it may not be ayam...it may be tikus or something else...ewwww...dah bakar sape tau kan...hehe....lepas dah penat, balik la hotel...


The next day, which was Saturday....we had the day to ourselves...buat la pape nak...aktiviti sendiri...nak tido sampai tengahari ke...ape ke...buat la...tapi rugi la kalau tido je...haha.... So, there was a plan to visit a Batik Factory and Mount Merapi! Oh yeah! Mount Merapi...a volcano...best ni kalau pergi...bila lagi nak pergi gunung berapi kan? Kat Malaysia mana ada...takat Gunung Pulai ada la... So sape yang nak ikut kena ready Rp. 50,000 for transportation...no hal...small matter...Ok set, diorang nak bertolak pukul 8.00 AM...but, unfortunately ada miscommunication...huhu...diorang sume dah pergi, they thought we didn't want to come...huhu...melepas lah nak pergi Gunung Merapi tu....uwaaahhh...sedih....yang pergi dalam berapa orang je...satu van...tapi takpelah, mesti ada hikmah dia kan....So kitorang ramai-ramai dengan Dr Min (the best!) pergi ape ntah nama pasar tu...tapi dia pasar yang jual baju-baju dan aksesori yang macam-macam...Haaa this was my chance untuk cari baju t-shirt kolar untuk Ayah... But before that, the three of us had a job to do. Nizar, Shariff and me had to go and exchange money for the others....wow! banyak duit diorang kasi...lepas tukar duit dapat more than Rp. 1,000,0000...wow! After that, we took a taxi to the pasar...panas weh...whoa...very hot...thank God taxi ada air-cond....aaaahhh...after about 5 minutes or so, sampai la dekat depan pasar tu....satu hal nak cari budak-budak ni pulak...adeih...dah la pasar tu crowded and stuffy...panas pulak tu...huhu...lepas dah jumpa tu, cari la apa yang nak di cari....tapi last-last tak jumpa pon...diorang banyak jual t-shirt biasa je...yang ada kolar takde...huhu...after spending about 2-3 hours there, I was drenched in sweat...huhu...then me, Nizar, Puva and Hajjar decided to go and have lunch at the mall. We took the taxi as we all sume dah tak larat nak jalan...penat...after we ate lunch, Nizar wanted to buy a bag for someone back home and after that we went back to the hotel...terus baring atas katil...ahhh nikmatnya dengan air-cond lagi...Alhamdulillah....time tu dah pukul 5.00 PM...then Dr Min kata lepas ni nak keluar pergi dinner...tempat best dia kata...ok then...jom-jom....



After freshening up, we went down and naik Innova ke tempat makan tu...I don't know what was the name of that place but it had a castle. It was awesome..!! And the food was great too! Ada udang...ikan...more ikan...ikan again...hehe...but masak cara lain-lain lah...after dinner we went back to the hotel..but the night wasn't over yet! Oh yeah! Ye lah...last night dekat Jogja...pagi-pagi esok dah nak balik Malaysia...kena bertolak from the hotel at 4.30 AM..oh my God...tidur ke tak malam ni...


After dinner, we all semua nak buat last time shopping....beli t-shirt, keychains and other types of souvenirs...about 1 hour juga lah...then balik hotel semula...simpan barang-barang yang dah beli tu...then terus baring...aaahhh..rehat....then tetiba ada orang ajak keluar lagi...nak naik kuda pulak...adoi...memula rasa malas gila nak ikut...baru je balik! Penat ni...then tetiba ajak keluar balik? Huhu...last-last fikir balik...oh what the heck...malam terakhir kat Jogja...ikut je lah...nanti rugi...So we all pun ramai-ramai naik kuda...kena 2 kuda sebab tak muat...kita ada 10 orang semuanya...Dr Min, Tina, Nizar, Ruzimi and me naik satu kuda and the rest kuda lain. I sit in front with the horse driver...menyesal pulak duduk depan...huhu...why? You will know in a minute....


So gerak lah kuda tu...ktak ktuk ktak ktuk....wah best...but agak sempit...hehe..ye lah orang besar, kaki panjang...huhu....Then tetiba kuda ni urgh....well I was sitting directly behind this horse's butt...well you get me? The horse took a leak! Huhu...uwaahh!!! Depan-depan mata...eyuckk!! And then the tail....well, you know right? I was like oh man....!!! Tapi takpe, nasib baik sikit je...huhu...(for now!). Kuda yang we all naik ni jalan slow la...maybe sebab I was on it...hahaha....!!!! Kitorang nampak tengah ada buat shooting...tak tau movie or tv series....Group yang satu lagi dah kat depan....jauh dah....then tetiba nampak kuda diorang stop depan hotel...aik? apesal kuda ni? So we all pun stop la jugak...pergi tanya diorang cakap kuda tu suddenly stop sebab depan hotel.....hahaha! Lepas tu, sambung balik jalan...nak balik Jalan Malioboro. Kuda diorang pun jalan...last-last kuda kitorang pulak yang tanak jalan! Adeih...apa kena ni?? Cepat la jalan...driver tu dah whip banyak kali pun tak gerak-gerak...lama juga we all tunggu...then kuda tu took another leak!!!! Aaaargh...this time banyak!!! Uwaaaahhhh.....I immediately covered my face and eyes with my shirt...tanak kasi mercik dekat muka lagi.....huhu....menyesal duduk depan!!! Diorang kat belakang gelak je...hahahaha siot.... Lepas dah sampai balik Jalan Malioboro tu, Dr Min ajak pergi mall...nak belanja we all makan...hehehe....thanks Dr Min...you're the best! After that, we went back to the hotel....uish, tak boleh tidur ni...nak kena pack semua barang siap-siap...pagi esok nak gerak at 4.30 AM man...kemas-kemas...muatkan semua dalam beg...risau jugak berat beg lebih 15 kg...huhu...Nizar lepas dah habis pack, terus tidur...ZzZzZ...bestnya...Me? Belum siap lagi...banyak lagi...ok takpe, cepat siapkan packing...nanti pagi esok takde lah nak rushing...Lepas dah habis tu, boleh pulak tertido...(ceh..ye ar tu tertido..haha)...ye lah penat satu hari jalan...dari pagi sampai malam kerja jalan je...capek gue..!!!

4.30 AM...tak bertolak lagi.....ramai macam tak siap lagi...then 5.00 AM baru gerak ke airport...nasib baik airport dekat je...in about 10 minutes or so dah sampai...lepas dah unload all the baggages, pergi check in. Risau je beg lebih 15 kg...and mine was 14.6 kg...Shariff's was 14.8 kg!! Hohoho...nasib baik..hehe...then tunggu sampai nak board the plane....lepas dah board, take off...time tengah kat atas tu lalu sebelah Gunung Merapi...masya-Allah...indahnya...lalu sebelah gunung tu...mantap ah! This time I didn't sit next to the window...nak kata selesa, takdelah selesa but more ok la...still sempit...ok 2 and half hours baru sampai Singapore...but then I slept...bangun-bangun dah nak sampai...oh yeah! After we landed, took our baggages and waited for the others. Then waited for the bus to come. Masuk balik Malaysia lalu tambak Johor...adoi...jem punya la panjang...sempat tidur ni...haha... Lepas dah lepas semua imigresen, rasa lega je...home sweet home...Alhamdulillah selamat sampai...


TAMAT

Jogjakarta: A Great Experience | Part 2

Ok, let's continue where we left off...lepas dah balik from jalan-jalan, balik bilik. We all plan nak tengok game Barcelona vs Inter Milan tu...dah semangat ni...tapi sorang-sorang tumbang, Nizar awal-awal lagi dah tidur, Shariff pula memang tengah stay up ni, ye ar dia sokong Barca masuk final....dia cakap nanti kalau game dah start, kejut dia. So, I waited up until the game started and lepas tu try la kejut Shariff. Dia bangun kejap then tidur balik...hahaha....tengok sorang-sorang je la nampaknya....but then again, sempat tengok sampai minit ke-30 je sebab lepas tu krrrooohhhhh......Zzzzzz....haha...pagi besok baru yang Barca kalah 3-2 on aggregate...hahahaha...yes! YES!!! So lepas dah siap-siap nak bertolak ke UGM, we all singgah dulu kat satu tempat ni...tempat ni orang selalu buat hajat...ada 2 pokok besar yang orang situ percaya boleh makbulkan hajat diorang....tapi kena datang waktu pagi-pagi buta...hohoho...So lepas dah amek gambar sume, terus ke UGM...ada 2nd kuliah. This time from Prof Dr Zaki...the lecture was about Soft System Methodology. Then dia kasi assignment. Hari Jumaat kena present. 


After the lecture, we went jalan-jalan lagi. This time we went to ape ntah nama tempat tu tapi tempat tu jual barang-barang seramik and then ke tempat yang jual barang-barang made from skin eh, I meant leather...hahaha.... So I brought 3 small vases for Mak. Takut gak kalau Mak suruh beli pasu besar-besar...hahahaha....so tanya la Mak nak pasu besar mana, dia cakap beli yang saiz dia dalam sejengkal je...After that, we went kedai Pak Joyo Roti. Diorang jual kek lapis...sedap! Tapi malas nak beli bawak balik sebab nanti leceh nak bawak dalam plane...hehehe...but yang diorang lain beli je....


The next day was the best! We all satu hari pergi jalan je...dari pagi sampai malam...hehehe...First we went to Borobudur. The journey from our hotel to Borobudur took about an hour and a half...something like that...Tempat ni pernah belajar time Sejarah time sekolah dulu. Ingat lagi, sebab candi ni nak siap sangat lama...60 years baru complete and it was once a wonder of the 7 wonders of the world. Sume best except for 1 thing....time turun bas ramai gila orang datang nak jual barang dia...keychains, t-shirts, postcards etc...there will be like 5 to 8 people kerumun sorang...huhuhu...I had a bad experience with these people, but macam tanak citer je...sedih...huhuhu..... 



So, after Borobudur we went to Prambanan. It took another an hour or so. Along the way, we stopped by for lunch and prayer. Well, I didn't eat though coz didn't had the appetite...kept thinking about what happened to me at Borobudur...huhu...ok stop! Stop thinking about it! Dah lepas...biarkan aje...huhu.....Lepas dah sampai Prambanan tu, pergi jalan-jalan lagi...the place was quite nice. But this time, more peace as there were no people hogging you trying to sell you things...adoyai...hehe... After taking pics here and there, we went to see the sunset on top er...tak ingat nama gunung tu...tapi memang best...you can see Bandar Jogjakarta from up there...nice! Then we ate dinner at Goebog Resto...lauk ikan je semua...hehehe....ok la sebab lepas balik hotel ni kena buat discussion because esok tu kena buat presentation...hehe...brain food...ikan...hehehe...



We all sampai balik hotel at about 8.00 PM...sudah capek...haha...penat...takpe, rehat-rehat dulu kejap..baring atas katil yang best! Terbaek! Then about 8.30 PM tu keluar semula pergi jumpa dengan team members yang dari UGM buat discussion...we all punya discussion relax-relax je...hahaha....memang best...dalam pukul 10 PM tu, we all pun balik ke hotel....

The next morning was Friday. We all keluar at about 8.00 AM and we went and picked up Prof Zaki at the University Club...he and his wife stayed there...wuuu best...then we went to UGM for the final lecture from Dr Min...tajuk dia 5 Disciplines of Innovation. After that, presentation time. The assignment was to draw a rich picture about the place we went yesterday and come up with new ideas on how to improve the system there. Lepas semua dah present, ada farewell meeting...huhuhu...sedih...


Part 3 coming soon....

Jogjakarta: A Great Experience | Part 1

Last week (26/4/2010 - 2/5/2010) I went to Jogjakarta or Yokyakarta or Djogdjakarta...hahaha so many types of spelling. Well, I went there for the UTM Global Outreach Program. Great experience, made many new friends...hehehe...Nizar, Shariff, Puva, Hajjar and How a.k.a Jasper were the only ones from my batch that joined. The others were 2nd year students and masters students. Dr Min was the coordinator of this program.

Our flight was on 26 April 2010 at 10.55 AM from Singapore. So we all have to get up very early that day. We all kena kumpul dekat FAB at around 6.30 AM. Dr Min dah pesan sejak hari tu lagi, jangan lewat...hehehe...but because of some setback, we all bertolak from UTM at 7.00 AM...(sorry Dr Min).

After all was settled, the bags were packed in the bus, we boarded the bus and I who was in charge to make sure all were on the bus started counting and make sure that there was all 24 people on board. Then off we go to Changi Airport. We all lalu jalan belakang, tak lalu Tambak Johor....nanti jam woooo....So we enjoyed the pemandangan of Singapore which was very clean...you can see the difference....we went pass the Eye of Singapore....Singapore Grand Prix circuit....but didn't see the Merlion though...


Lepas dah lepas semua proses immigration and all, we checked in and waited until to be boarded. Lepas dah masuk plane (Air Asia), I sat next to the window and oh man....sempit.... the last time I naik Air Asia was in 2006 when I went to Aceh. The journey from Singapore to Jogjakarta is 2 and half hours! So terpaksalah duduk sempit macam tu for 2 and half hours. But luckily, last night I didn't sleep and after the plane took off, for about 20 minutes or so, I...krroooohhh....ZzZzZ....and by the time I woke up, we were about to land...yay! The local time was about 12.30 PM and it was blazzing hot...whoah! After that, we all went straight to UGM (Universitas Gadjah Mada). There will be a little briefing about the program and the tentative for the whole week. Soon after, we were brought to tour the faculties and the campus. Gadjah Mada was actually the name of the king of Jogjakarta long ago!


The last faculty that we went was the Fakultas Kedokteran (Faculty of Medicine). After that, we went straight to the hotel (yay!) Malioboro Inn...hehehe....me, Nizar and Shariff were in room 217. The first thing we did when we entered the room was to check the TV to see if there's ESPN and there is! We were planning to watch the Champions League Semi-Final. The room was awesome! There's two bed and one tilam on the floor. We all gilir-gilir tidur...which means on the first day, me and Shariff slept on the beds while Nizar slept on the floor. The next day, was Shariff's turn and so on. That night, we went out jalan-jalan dekat Malioboro...check out the place...woooo ada mall...layan....


The next day, we went back to UGM to hear a lecture about DSS and after that we all checked out the labs and stuff. That evening we went to KOPMA which stands for Koperasi Mahasiswa. They sell all kinda stuff about UGM...t-shirts, bags, keychains, caps and much more. That night we went out again. We all naik bas and jalan-jalan around the city.  Mak asked me to buy a 3 in 1 batik set and I was like, "Mana la nak cari? Tak tahu tempat ni..." Then I asked Prof Zaki coz he has been staying here a week early and he knows. So we all pun jalan-jalan....then I stopped at this one shop and asked about the 3 in 1 thing. She said, "Ada...ada...." and I asked for samples....hehe....after choosing carefully and thinking which patterns that Mak will like, I bought 3...one for Nenek, one for Busu and one for Mak. Then we went to the mall again...saje jalan-jalan...hehehe...


To be continued....more to come!
