As days went by, many participants as usual bailed out without good reasons (helo timin en adit, especially Adit whom using the same reason: have to make syllabus for his class)...pls dechhh..
We proudly mention here that we managed this trip by ourself, well..mostly major parts were done by Toto - our walking mobile banking (because he always covered all the expenses in advance for all us, in most of our trips) as we don't wanna to get rip off by local provider for this kind of excursion. We're still on eventhough a few times had troubles in preparing our trip, such as; not getting any room in Peucang Island- and the thought of camping in wild is not really my thing :)) and I begged Toto to look for proper accomodation for us. The budget went high because of the Elf charter rates and boat renting fees. We had to have 25 people to join us to cut cost for each pax Rp 500,000. And there were Hendry's friends filled the pack. after a few days before departure finally we had names for 25 persons to join this trip (I stil couldn't remember their names, sorry guys), my concern were only these people: Arya, Tania, Ezta.
day to day :
14-15 August,2009 ; departure from Jakarta, Badul island, Handeuleum, Cigenter river
The meeting point were in Al Azhar - Roti Bakar Edi, supposed to be depart on 8 pm but we waited up to 10 pm to have all these 25 people gathered. I hate it when people couldn't hold their promise to be ontime, or at least pay respect to other who come ontime !!..so weird, if only this trip was by plane, you should be left behind, no flight will wait for you ..
Btw Something happened to my brand new shoes; Teva - Omnium, hubby bought these in Pasaraya on sale and it cost us Rp 362,000 a pair and I just wear it for today, and they broken already!! WTF?? I should sue the retail company..damn. The most devastating moment was when we went back to Handeuleum and it was almost dark, and apparently this captain of the boat is new, he really didn't know how to park his boat, in the dark :( I went sailing to many islands and mostly returned back almost dark and the captain never had problem like this. Took him over than an hour to close our boat to the pier :(( we were so hungry, pissed off and we had to walk in the dark across the forest trail, and I had this tremendous headache since we were in Cigenter, I couldn't eat our dinner , I puked and have instant noodle instead, hubby were nicely massaged me and put me asleep..oh I love you soooo
16 August, 2009 : Citerjun, Peucang island
Woke up very lazy and had to drag myself to take a bath but then again I didn't :p because I remember we're gonna snorkle to Peucang Island!! yeyyy... Peucang island is a small but very beautiful, unique and pleasant tropical island with a white sandy beach, blue coastal waters and enchanting coral reefs. Various species of wild animals are found in its forest. Peucang is located northwest of Ujung Kulon National Park, some 77 km from Labuan in Pandeglang regency, Peucang island is one of the country's tourist resorts suitable for ecotourism and marine tourism activities, as well as adventure.
17 August 2009; Oar island, Sumur, warung bu Entin
Originally we should go to Panaitan island for a half day but since lately the wind and current were rather strong so we decided to cancel upon this plan and changed to visit Oar island on the way back to Sumur. The trip took us almost 2 hours when we reached Oar it was almost lunch time, we were so hungry, almost all of us chartered small boat to reach Oar island, excluding me, hubby, wulan, ezta, abe and toto. While ezta, abe, toto and abe were always being dolphins around open water (they really enjoyed their gigantic unlimited swimming pool...hehehhe), me and wulan decided to stay on the boat. The heat were killing me, I couldn't drag myself to swim let alone going to the island :(
