Finally i'm not lazy to write and tell how my holiday was. This was my first time going to Sumatra, we went to Bangka Island 'suddenly' because usually my mom always has plan about 5 months or more before we go. We went on 25th December morning, we dropped off our case at hotel and this hotel has a super duper cute interior and the exterior as well. It is Menumbing Hotel, so recommended 'thumbs up' i suggest u to stay there if you're going to Bangka Island.
After we dropped off our case, we directly went to Tikus Beach. we could see temple there and observed the chinese architecture haha kebetulan abis belajar sejarah arsitektur cina. The temple has large yard and has the most breathtaking view. all i saw was blue from the sky to the sea, it was like band together. Sun was blazing and we got burned *cry inside* then we decided to go to the next destination. Parai Beach! but i was dissapointed because the sea didnt seems blue, but the rocky beach was the point of the parai beach you can also walk into hmm i dont know the name, it was like bridge but it wasnt haha sorry i forget. it was sunny day of course because it was arround 2pm at the beach. Then we went to Matras Beach it's a beautiful beach with smooth white sand, it felt like i wanna roll over on the sand. ohya dont forget to enjoy the coconut water on the coast.
because that day our destinations were all about the beach so i called it 'Beach Day' and luckily we had sunny day:)
The day i've had been waiting for yess, i've had browse about kaolin lake and when i saw it i thought 'i have to go to this heaven place' aaaaa it was just....hhhh i was amazed for this God creation. you guys just see it from photo and i'm certain you are amazed but if you were there and saw it with ur own eyes u definitely will think for jumping and swimming to that lake just like i did. there were 2 lakes with different colour, the one was blue and the other one was green. i dont know why it just happened maybe the water contains green and blue algae or i dont know exactly. but the bad weather was coming, the cloud was turning grey and rain was coming. so we decided to go to our next destination. it was Pelawan Forest, pelawan wood has reddish wood btw jangan lupa pake cream anti nyamuk ya guys banyak banget nyamuk disini. you can take photos on the red bridge there, i thought it was the icon of the pelawan forest. unlucky us, the rain was coming again and we decided had lunch at mr. adox restaurant, it was seafood restaurant and the best seafood i've ever eaten, very recommended! and the price wasn't too pricey with really delicious food and the portion was so big. but before we had lunch we ate durian on the roadside, just one hundred thousand rupiahs you can get 6 durians. pleasure of heaven right??!
Then we went to fisherman village, we could find the houses floated above the sea. this place was perfect for photo-hunting, you can see how to make a boat manually. After looking around the village, we went to Tung Tau Coffee Shop, its very recommended, the special menu was toasted bread with optional filling. it felt good espescially the egg inside the toasted bread. The first-built shop is in Sungai Liat. so dont miss it!
Noooo the last day in Bangka Island huuu so sad. we went to Kayu Tua Tunu Mosque at Tua Tunu Village, unfortunately an event 'pengajian' was held there so we couldnt get in but we could get around, we found a pyramid made from wood and the structure made it looked great, i think its used as a playground for the kids. and then i extremely climbed the tree judulnya iseng sih dikira gampang:( i thought it was easy but it felt like i got a heart attack.........i wasnt the expert of this. when i arrived i just hug the trunk and fear to get down but finally i did:) yeay
After we were done looking around the Kayu Tua Tunu Mosque we went to Bangka Botanical Garden at Pangkal Pinang, we could took photos like a scene in Winter Sonata (?) am i true? haha we could took photos between the pine trees also met the horse and cow farms and fed them of course. kasih makannya pake rumput kejujuran hehe lucu ya. but i think bangka botanical garden seems less maintained huhu sayang bangetya. dont forget to buy cow milk there!
We were starving so we decided to eat. we went to Aroma Laut Seafood Restaurant. the shape of the restaurant was like a big ship and jutted out to the Pasir Padi Beach. for the view it's the winner but for the taste i think mr adox is still the winner hehehehe
Well thats my family trip. actually i intended to make a documentary video.but i didnt even start making it hehe but i'll make it soon! so you wont miss it! bye see me on my next trip
