So, our last island to be visited in Derawan Archipelago that time was Pulau Gusung (Gusung Island) or Pulau Gosong (Burnt Island). On our way, the boat driver asked us not to put our hope to high for spending longer time at Gusung Island because it was highly influenced by the sea tidal. Our driver worried it was already high tide. That worrisome, it also made me worry. Ehm. In about one hour later, the worrisome gradually washed away as we saw something like a long white line between the bright blue sky and the aquamarine sea. We were quite … Continue reading Pulau Gusung, Derawan Islands, East Borneo
Suddenly the need of the blue runs through my blood’s stream, and speaking of blue, it reminds me about beach, and here I am, on my desk, remembering one of my blue-scaping close to Sangatta, where my family live. It’s called Pulau Beras Basah (Wet Rice Island) which lies at Makassar Strait, about 60 km at the southern part of Sangatta. It’s such a peculiar name, isn’t it?

I had been imagining it with stock of my favourite books and snacks. Reading the whole book … Continue reading I Did It, At Least
Last day, I think in each travel, holiday, trip, or whatever we might call it, always gives me ‘I want to use it well, give it my all and my best’ spirit. Rushing with dusk, I woke up at 5.00 am and at 6.00 I was well prepared, then directly put my step out of my room. With this ’45 independence zest on me, I walk cheerfully along the empty and hallow Double Six Street Legian. I was planning to make a stop awhile at the beach because I wanted to feel the air of it at early morning and … Continue reading Suddenly Bali (III); Fussy Last Day, Kute – Legian
“Raise your hand if u were the one who will refuse the beauty of Beach, Cloud, Sky, Sunrise, and Sunset, because, i won’t rise mine and i hope i never would …” I’m neither an expert nor an amateur photographer, but just an ordinary girl who unconsciously raises my hand fills with mobile phone or camera while seeing such a beauty. Here some picture with quotes that I’ve been collected, captured by me, i hope everyone who stops at my blog will enjoy the beauties, and while enjoying it, please enjoy it to the fullest. Because i did. “I thought … Continue reading Beach, Cloud, Sky, Sunrise, and Sunset; Hanging there to be grateful for!!!
