Yogyakarta Punya Cerita

A couple weeks ago I went to Yogyakarta, to attend some international conference, called IYPF 2011 (International Young Planners Forum). The conference held in Phoenix Hotel which is a very great venue. Here, I googled them, enjoy. Oh I forgot to tell ya, that conference last for 3 days (12-15th of July 2011).

Great isn’t it? Well, the conference is okay. We shared knowledge to each other, to Asia-Pacific countries, like Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia. I won’t tell stories about the conference, but I’ll tell ya the trip I was have in Jogja! Here we go…

In the first night, we went to Malioboro, buying – oh, sorry, not buying but shopping – things and accesories. It’s very cheap! I got ring that only cost 10k rupiahs! Can’t you imagine that? And some bangles priced 30k rupiahs. In bahasa, I would like to use this word, “kalap” hahaha.. I will tell you the detail about accesories later. And after shopping we just sitting around waiting for Arnold Tandipau, he is my college mate but in some condition he has to move to Jogja. AAAA. I MISS YOU ARNOLD :):)

 In the second night we went to Alun-Alun Selatan. We play some games, like you know, walking with eyes closed and if you can walk through Pohon Beringin your wish will come true.  And the result, I lost, hahaha. After that we ride some (not so called) bicycle, I’m not sure, but we called them ODONG-ODONG yeahhhh… It was very fuuuuuuuun. We can’t stop laughing that night. Oh yes, and around Alun-Alun there are many food you can try, I ate Indomie and Pecel Lele and I think the sambel was quite good.

After that I’m not quite sure where we have been gone. But for sure, we went to Bakpia Pathok 25 Industry, Dagadu, and Keraton Yogyakarta in the last day. Haha I lied, actually I remember but I’m very lazy to write a story ’bout that so I  will show you some pictures.
