It doesn't matter where we go, but who we're going with. It's true, don't you think? I enjoy going on a trip to a not well-known location with people i love instead of going to Europe with people i hate.

A week after Eid Mubarak, I went to for a short getaway to Ujung Kulon with my lovely Fat-and-Furious girls (Avi, Shalli, Gina and Zaki) and Arya (Gina's husband). By short I really mean short in time. We spend less than 2 days, including the journey between Jakarta and Ujung Genteng. Though it's extremely short, but we had a fabulous time during the trip!

Few days before the trip we had a difficulty looking for driver who willing to drive us a 6-7hours journey to Ujung Genteng. Though i can drive, yet I don't trust my self that much, thus I'm more of a-matic-vehicle type of driver. Since it's still a holiday season, rate for a-rent-a-car-driver is super expensive, around 400K a day! So, i decided to look for a free driver by posting it on twitter. Luckily, Attriya respond my tweet and he willing to drive us, with one condition, we must go back to Jakarta early in the morning on Sunday. Since we got no better offer, so we decided to say YES and take the offer.
Here comes the Day! Friday, August 24, the day for Ujung Genteng trip also my last day working in GTA! After having a heartbreak farewell with my colleagues I went to Plaza Semanggi, our meet up point. Once all gathered, we took off and start the trip, yeeaay, Ujung Genteng, here we come! As i remember from my late trip to Ujung Genteng, it took whole life to reach the location, but not this time. Though it took more than 7hours ride, but I really enjoy the journey, so it doesn't really felt that long! After 2 stops on the way, we manage to arrive at Ujung Genteng approx in 3AM and go straight to Pondok Hexa, an inn nearby the beach. Since our bungalow shall available at 12, they give us a small room just to take a short rest. Well actually there's only me, Avi, Shalli and Zaki who get to sleep in the room while the other had to sleep in the car *evil grin*
