teh botol sosro

wherever i go, a bottle of teh botol sosro will be the first choice if i get thirsty..

I payed 3.000 rupiahs for this at floridas resto in ternate, north maluku (normal price for teh botol is 2.000 rupiahs). but..with a breathaking view of tidore island over there..the price is not expensive, is it?

teva sandals




Yeahh...I'm a big fan of TEVA sandals.
It's so comfortable for long distance walk.

I have two pairs of teva, the black one like on this pic which is Women's Pretty Rugged 2, style 6465 and here is another, the red one
that is Women's TERRA F1-2.

teva's price is too expensive for me.
so i have to wait for a sale season.

** and I'm dreaming this one the rugged leather style**

ojek - ternate

berdirilah di pinggir jalan dan menyetoplah pada sembarang pengemudi kendaraan..umumnya mereka tukang ojek, setidaknya mau mengantar ke suatu tempat dan memdapat imbalan.

tukang ojek di ternate memang tidak ngepos di pangkalan..tetapi berseliweran di jln layaknya pengguna jln lainnya. tarifnya rata2 3rb..kalo agak jauh 3km ya sekitar 5rb..lbh mahal drpd tarif angkot yg cuma 2rb, tp ojek bisa nganter masuk ke lorong2. ohya, gak perlu repot pake helm kok, karena peraturan berhelm di ternate masih longgar, pembonceng boleh gak pake helm..

-pg ini ngojek ke kraton ternate dr terminal gama-

situasi politik di ternate menegangkan

sejak pkl 2 wit suasana jalan2 di ternate lengang, kantor dan toko2 tutup, angkot gak jalan, petugas keamanan berjaga2, warga menutup lorong dan bergerombol di mulut gang. rumah gubernur dipadati massa pendukungnya, kantor kpu diblokade..

siang ini, selepas sholat jumat, diadakan pleno utk menentukan siapa yg jadi gubernur periode berikutnya. ohya..hasil pilkada akhir okt '07 lalu blm memuaskan sejumlah pihak..

-dipotret dari dlm mobil gerai telkomsel, thanks udah mengawal..hehe..-

manado's angkot

most of manado people called them "mikro", others called them "oto". but on the wagon we could read block letter "BUS KOTA". and i prefer to call them "angkot".

passengers have to pay 1.800 rupiahs for one way. it's cheaper than angkot in other cities in east of indonesia. usually we pay about 2.000 - 2.5000 rupiahs for angkot.


-me in angkot route to pasar 45 - malalayang, manado-
