Borobodur-Dieng-Jogja Exodus Part II

Let’s talk something else than hajj…. :D

Met with few Kuantan Luarbiasa rhodong over a TT yesterday. We started discussing about what to bring to Dieng. Altogether 16 people were already confirmed to go;

  1. me
  2. Ali
  3. Jasni
  4. Alphaman (Big’s friend)
  5. Big & wife
  6. Wanoridz & wife (uDa)
  7. Nizam & wife
  8. Dome
  9. Aji
  10. Mizi
  11. Badang
  12. Syahrin & wife

Dieng is a highland. Maybe colder than Cameron Highland or Genting. Temperature maybe around 12-15C. So what to bring:

  1. Jacket – no need to be too thick
  2. Glove – thin one should do just fine
  3. Socks
  4. Suitable shoes – sandal is OK if you can stand the cold
  5. Snow cap – preferably something to cover ears
  6. 3 pairs of cloths should be enough I think
  7. Torchlight

We are not going to climb any mountain by foot. And we are not going to camp. Therefore no need to bring any tent or sleeping bag. Those couples may need to pay a bit extra (just a bit) if they wanna stay with their wife because for bachelors like us, we will be staying 3 persons in a room usually. But I am not too sure about that.

I estimate the total budget excluding shopping & tickets to Borobudur per person is only 1,000,000 Rp (around RM320-250). I hope I will not have to ask additional Rp from you guys. The ticket to Borobudur usually about 10,000 Rp. Me, Ali & Jasni might not go in. Been there twice already.

As for camera gears, we will be shooting landscape, street & people. So you can figure out what gears to bring. I may just bring a wide angle & a tele. And of course a flash & tripod is important. Yup, you can bring charger together with the adaptor. I know dR ali will bring his macro lens & the fancy lighting system. So those who wish to shoot Indonesian spider can follow suit.

Please remember to bring these important documents:

  1. Passport – valid passport – please check the expiry date
  2. Photocopies of passport – some even colour photocopied & laminated it
  3. A photocopy of the flight ticket – usually not required but better to bring
  4. A photocopy of the insurance – not really necessary in Indonesia

For Kuantan guys, we will be departing to LCCT on Monday 9th Feb early morning (before Fajr). Most likely in 2 cars. Maybe we can park the cars at Badang’s house in Taman Melati & then take Aliran to Sentral before boarding bus to LCCT. Dome will be coming from KT but I guess he will go a day earlier & stay at Aji’s house. Jasni will be travelling from Muar. Syahrin & wife will be coming from KL with Aji & Dome. Make sure be there before 10AM ye guys. Our flight will be at 1:55PM. Max weight for luggage is 15kg. So preferably bring less than 10kg. In case you wanna buy few kilos of purwacheng later :D

Addendum: Check previous posting for detail.

    hehehehe….ke tongkat masa nak balik nanti ( untuk yang bawak bini ). aahhahahah. wah dah tak lama dah tuh. sebulan lebey sket jek lagi. dr Hj. J, harap dah finalized kan costing transport, hotel, dan makanan kat sana. kabul cakap dah settle, tapi its good to ask for detailed itenary and costing again.

    anyway, kalo sayalah, kena bawak at least rm 1000. rm 350 for tour fees, rm 350 for shopping and the balance 300 in case u run out of money for shopping. hehhehe. jogja punya batik cun2 woo. ada satu tuh, gambar naga, color merah dan putih, lawa giler aaa, tapi sayangnya sutera rasanya. Mungkin mix, tapi dia punya harga,….cukuplah berpuas hati, hampir 2 juta.

    kepada yg jarang atau belum pernah ke indo, hati2 lah dengan sambal cecah dia ( terutamanya yang dalam botol ) . Can be very hot dan tidak nyaman kepada perut2 kita. hehehehe. saya dah kena sekali kat bandung bulan 8 harituh, aduh, tercirit 2 hari…rugi wooo.. hehehhee. so bawak2 lah medical siap2.

    oklah, nak sambung experiment….choowww
