Tambahan lagi, Air Asia dan Malindo ada banyak penerbangan ke Indonesia. Setakat ini saya dah 3 kali pergi Indonesia iaitu pada tahun 2008 (backpacking pertama) ke Jakarta […]

“Expressi…”said Mas Kabul to me every time, before he pressed the camera shutter. I think that was funny. At first I thought it was a joke, but then, when he said it every time, I know its not a joke. Just a word like ‘Say Cheese’ or ‘Smile…’. Early morning at Sikunir Mountain. He was […]
