Lot of things we don't understand in this life. Sometimes people explain to us, sometimes book or internet give the answers. But sometimes there one or two things unexplainable and even book or internet has no answer for it. We must figure it out by ourselves.
And maybe you ask why I write this.
Just figure it out by yourself.

Finally! Yogyakarta day 3 and 4!
First stop was Keraton, the place where the sultan live. The entrance ticket is IDR 7000 for local and 12500 for foreigner. And you must pay extra IDR 2000 if you want to take a picture. You will get a guide that will explain anything about this place. Keraton is so traditional and vintage. Sultan Hamengku Buwono X live here. He is a sultan, and also a government. The people really love sultan because he is so kind. He help the citizen a lot especially in economy and education. One of famous university in Yogyakarta using the land that belong to Keraton.
This is the hall where the sultan usually give a speech. He doesn't use mic because this hall will make your voice resound. *We tried it* The legend also said that Keraton have one straight line with Tugu *the famous monument in Yogyakarta* and also one line with pantai selatan (the south beach)
The next stop was museum kereta keraton . It is separated, but near from keraton. The same guide will take you there. You must pay again for the entrance ticket. I admit it's a little creepy in there. But the carriages was so beautiful. It's an old carriage. The sultan before Hamengku Buwono X imported this carriage from Dutch.
After Museum Kereta, the guide will take you to Batik Tulis place. Batik tulis is really an art! They make it one by one used canting. Handmade without machine at all.
From Keraton, we were heading to Water Palace or usually called Taman Sari. This is the place where Sultan shower with his wives. Taman Sari is not too far from Keraton. You must pay the entrance ticket. It's IDR 7000 and extra pay for taking picture.
Inside Taman Sari, there is a place called Kampung Cyber. There is a place where the Keraton staff live. They called abdi salem. They give their life to serve Sultan and they are not paid. Keraton give them food and home. So, to meet another need, they make handicraft like batik tulis or wayang kulit.
Wayang Kulit made from buffalo skin
Still inside Taman Sari, we found this cool indie T-shirt shop : Voice of Jogja. Yogyakarta people are amazing creative artists.

Inside Moesson Antik
We were planning to go to the Prambanan temple and beach after the city tour, but before that we stopped at Moesson antik, the place that sell vintage stuff.

Beach at last after 4 hours driving from city
And we went home at Day 4! Thanks for keeping up with my Yogyakarta travel diary. Have a nice saturday all.

Welcome drink at Floating Market Lembang
Yesterday, my boyfriend and I decided to go little bit far from city. We bored with anything related to mall and cafe. So we went to Floating Market at Lembang and steep our self with sulfur water at Gracia Spa and Resort at Ciater. Lembang and Ciater not too far from Bandung.
The floating market area is so wide. The entrance ticket is IDR 10000. There are some restaurants, but my favorite spot is where they sell the food on the boat. They sell I think almost all kind of food, especially traditional food such as mie jowo, lotek, rujak, kupat tahu, etc. The food price is between IDR 10000-30000. Me and my boyfriend ate pisang keju coklat (banana with cheese and chocolate) , kupat tahu (tofu with traditional seasoning), and potato twist. The foods are so yummy. We can ridding canoe or boat. And also we can fishing here! The air is so fresh and cool. Good place to take picture. Love this place! Recommended to visit.

After that we went to Gracia Spa Resort at Ciater. The entrance ticket is IDR 45000 for adult and IDR 35000 for children. The water is not too hot and it contain sulfur which is good for skin. The place is quite nice and clean.
And finally at the end of our mini trip that day we ate at Brebes. They specialty is chicken. The taste is so damn good.
Our early dinner
And also this : Ketan Bakar
That was a simple trip but the most important thing is not the place, but the person who you be with when you do the trip. That what make a journey meaningful and priceless. That's it for today. Bye bye and see you again on the next post.
Have a good day you all good people
