Pahawang Island Trip: Scenic view along the way

Last week trip to Pahawang Islands, Pesawaran, Lampung with my officemates was unexpected trip. We used to go to Mutun Beach or got across to Tangkil Beach which located at Lampung Bay, it just about 25 kilometres away from Bandar Lampung City. We've got to take some trip after the meeting with the consultants and representative from head office done the night before, so we have free one day before get back to Jakarta, but unfortunately our boss can't joined because he had to got back to Jakarta in the next morning.

To be honest i have a little bit of pesimistic feeling about Lampung's Tourims, even though there's a lot of picturesque beaches, beautiful waterfall, and magnificent mountains, but it wasn't maintaned well yet. Almost all the tourist attractions in Lampung managed by some groups community or by private bussiness, but it seems not totally developed yet, there's so many garbage at the beach, some facilities doesn't support tourists needs such as toilets, rooms rinse, or adequate restaurants. But however Bandar Lampung and surroundings still my favourites destination since i was stay there for about seven years.

Back to the trip to Pahawang Island, we catched the beach at 10.00 am, when we met the shipowner whose ship lean back at The Mutun Beach, we ask to get across to Tangkil Island which loacted near the beach and charged 20.000 IDR /person/roundtrip, quite cheap i thought. And then they offered to cross over to Pahawang Island which need about one hour during sailing. It cost 800.000 IDR/boat which accomodate until 12 persons, and they will bring us back to Mutun Beach at noon since our flight to Jakarta at 6.00 pm and it needs more than one and half hour trip to the airport. The local guuides also offered for rent snorkeling accessories 50.000 IDR/person.

Pahawang Island was totally awesome, we were treated with beautiful scenery along the trip, blue sky, turquoise sea, white sands, and of course the smells of sea that i like the most. For sure trip to the beaches never dissapoints me at all, this Pahawang Island trip one of them.

Our first expectations trip to Pahawang Islands from Mutun Beach was about one hour just like what the local guide said, but it took almost two hours in reality, by using twin-engine boat. Since it was far away to get back to Mutun Beach at noon, so i decided to got back from Pahawang Islands to Ketapang Harbour which is located closer than Mutun Beach, it was only took one hour. The car that we rent before, i asked to pick us up at Ketapang Beach to get back to the airport, notes that it was charged 350.000 IDR for car rent exclude fuels and tips.

Here are some pictures from our Pahawang Trip, enjoy.................xoxo.

Won't get back from here :D

Dinara's 8th Birthday (lateposting)

Happy 8th Birthday kk Dinara.... xoxo

Farabi's 5th Birthday


2 Agustus 2017

Alhamdulillah hari ini Farabi udah sah bukan balita lagi, udah 5 tahun sekarang :*
Sejak dua bulan terakhir Bunda dan Ayah kepikiran pengen ngerayain ultah Abby di sekolah bareng temen-temennya karena waktu TK A dulu blm sempet dirayain. Nah disamping itu juga karena kaka Dinara yang semangat banget pengen adeknya ultah dirayain supaya dapet banyak kado kayak dulu waktu dia ultah ke-5. 

Beberapa persiapan udah kami rancang jauh-jauh hari seperti tema, goodie bag, undangan, kue, souvenir dll. Yang mana semuanya baru sempet dieksekusi di saat-saat terakhir hahaha. Malah ada beberapa item yang harusnya disiapkan sebelumnya malah ga sempet dibikin seperti thank you card, backdrop dan topi ultah. Sebenarnya sih agak gemes juga sama diri sendiri karena sebelumnya ga kepikiran buat order tapi yasudahlah mau gimana lagi. 

Alhamdulillah semua lumayan lancar walaupun pada hari yang sama ternyata temen-temen Abby di dua kelas paralel yang lain juga ada yang berulang tahun, jadi guru-guru saling berkoordinasi untuk setting waktunya karena Abby juga mengundang beberapa temen-temnnya di kelas lain yang dulu waktu TK A sempet sekelas.

Dengan dipandu Bu Guru Nining dan Bu Mel acara yang sederhana namun seru bikin anak-anak sumringah. Apalagi Bu Nining pandai melakukan beberapa trik sulap yang bikin anak-anak ketagihan. Terimakasih yaa Bu Guru.

Berikut ini catatan printilan ultah ke-5 Farabi dengan tema yang akhirnya dipilih "Captain America".

My handsome lil' fireman

Jadi ceritanya hari Kamis yang lalu di kelasnya Farabi ada sesi foto angkatan (*jiaahh anak TK A ajah pake foto angkatan segalak yakk) berhubung udah mau selesai tahun ajaran, eh sebenarnya sih masih beberapa bulan lagi yaa tapi karena bulan depan kan udah masuk bulan puasa nah biasanya di sekolah tuh ada kegiatan amaliyah Ramadhan jadi mungkin kegiatan lain pengennya dislesein sebelum bulan puasa. 

Nahh kebetulan kelasnya Farabi kebagian tema "profesi" untuk dresscode fotonya, pas banget deh karena belakangan ini tuh anak lagi ribut terus pengen jadi fireman, kebetulan juga udah punya segala peralatan dan topi fireman, tinggal Ayah order bajunya aja deh.

Lucunya anak-anak tuh yaa, kadang gemes kadang jadi geli sendiri. Seperti kemarin pagi wkt Farabi cerita kalo dia suka main playdoh sama Bunda mau bikin masakan/makanan dari playdoh. Terus kk Dinara bilang " Dek, kalo suka main masak-masak harusnya adek tuh jadi koki bukan jadi fireman". Nahh dibilangin gitu sama kakaknya si adek langsung nangis gak karuan, "Kan Abi maunya jadi fireman, kenapa kk bilang Abi harus jadi koki" *sambil nangis sesenggukan* (-___-)!

Our Fave Spot at Lampung : Grand Elty Krakatoa Resort's Beach

Grand Elty Krakatoa Resort has become one of out fave spot to spent while travelling in Lampung, located between Bakauheni Port and Bandar Lampung City, it can access reachable for about 4 km from Trans Sumatera Highway. It's detail location at Trans Sumatera Highway KM 45 Merak Belantung, Kalianda South Lampung District. The resort has calm beachy, white sand, exotic scenery with Mount Rajabasa as background, and many water sport activity such as canoe, banana boat, snorkeling, or just havin relax at the beach's cafe. Actually it's located quite away from the capital city of Bandar Lampung, it's about 1 hour drive from the city. 

To be honest we didn't stay at the resort yet, since review from the travellers we read form Tripadvisor not so good. So we choose to stay at the capital city Bandar Lampung, for more reasons that we could explore the culinary better than stay at the resort. Last week is our fourth visit here, we came here before lunch time about 11 am and brought some meals for lunch, then we spent the day until 8 pm before went back to Jakarta. Ticket price for one day entering the resort's beach if we didn't stay at the resort for adults and children more than 5 yo was 50K IDR, but the 20K IDR used as a voucher for any F&B at the resort's bar and restaurant, well I said it's worth for value. For the first time we rent the canoe here, the price was 20K IDR for 30 minutes, kiddos was very excited and they're also enjoying swimming at the other side of the beach which was more calm than other side of the beach that more close to the Mount Rajabasa in the background. Actually the beach quite flat that kids can swimming safely. We love to had some activity here because it's not too crowded, the beach clean enough, and the resort offers some beach activities. 

Fortunately our visit last week, the moon shine beautifully, we spent the night at the Rodeoz Beach Cafe enjoying a cup of hot chocolate, coffe and french fries, for those we just spent about 25K IDR plus 2 voucher each value 20K IDR from the entry tickets, it was very nice experience. Well we'll back here for our next visit to Lampung for sure, we love this place and would recommend our relatives and friends to come here (but not to stay since we had no experience yet).
