My Weekends

Apart from my holidays, my daily life is apparently plain. It’s a 7 to 5 work life with little myself time after dinner. Not much to do with those remains hours after working hours.

Yes, holiday in Derawan Islands meant hopping from one to another island. I have no idea exactly how far Sangalaki island from Kakaban, but it’s located at the western part of Kakaban island, and we reached it in about 30 minutes with the speed boot.
