Jogja.. Never Ending Asia

I am so proud to be a Javanese people, i have to admit that. I would too, if i were Sundanese, Bataknese, Manadonese, etc.. cos me so proud to be an Indonesian with all the exotic cultures we have here.

People around the world know Indonesia from its Bali, but now, so proud to announce you that, hey! we have Jogja with all the uniqueness from its culture. Here in Jogja, there are so many interesting places to visit. Jogja has Kaliurang (a popular mountain resort), Taman Sari (a water castle, used to be female bathing pools), Imogiri (official cemetery of the royal descendents from Jogyakarta and Surakarta), Bringharjo Traditional Market, Parangtritis Beach, Prambanan Temple, and the most famous & most visited street.. Malioboro (full of souvenir stalls and famous for its lesehan foodstalls).

So many stories to tell about my excursion to Jogja this past week. No i didn't visit all the places i've mentioned before cos i've done it like million times in my younger years. ..But those are some new places i visited, never been there before, which're really fun to hang out in. Those places are Alun-Alun Kidul with its famous twin trees, Goa Maria Jatiningsih (my friends Vigara & Puput took me there), and Sky Garden Cafe Resto.
