The Ancient Yogyakarta

I’ve never heard of this place before a friend of mine, whom an avid traveller and in love with all the ancient and historical places, Miss Ah Lin, told me so. She suggested that we should visit this city of tolerance. Therefore, 8 of us, head to the ancient city of Indonesia, Yogyakarta!

A short trip from 24th – 27th Oct 2012, it’s my very first visit to Indonesia. Everything seems to be overwhelming to me. The food, the places, the people, the culture, the language (even though I speak Melayu, but something is different from Bahasa Indonesia with our Bahasa Malaysia), the dim light, the street graffiti, the historical monument and everything else. It’s a beautiful town.

We went to Borobudur Temple, Prambanan, Merapi Volcano, Gua Pindul, stroll along at night at Malioboro street and few other city attractions. To me, nothing beats Borobudur in Yogyakarta. We are deeply regretted that we doesn’t wake up earlier to watch the sunrise at Borobudur. Anyways, I had fun in this trip with my bunch of friends and some new friends. 🙂 Oh, and in order to respect the temple, we should avoid short sleeves and shorts. They do provided some “kain batik” on the entrance anyway.

Pictures taken by LC-Wide, LC-A, Fisheye Baby 110 and Canon AE-1. I basically wasted the 2 rolls I shoot using Canon AE-1 in this trip due to the wrong filter and the light that leaks the wrong way. Sigh.

Till then, see you again soon, Indonesia!
