Short Trip to Bomo Beach

Yesterday when I was taking a rest in my room, I heard someone calling me. I got up and came toward the voice. I still tried to gather all my power. Until I knew someone calling me was my auntie. She told me that she would go to the beach. And I was invited.  It's about 4:30 a.m. It just took no more than 30 minutes to reach it, Bomo Beach.

Having arrived, I just knew that there was not only me, but also my other cousins, auntie, and uncle . Because the others had come first. My little sister, my cousins, and my uncles taking a bath and playing the water there since the tide started to be low. But, my aunties and I were not. They waited for the fish to be ready to eat. I just enjoyed the scenery and took some pictures.

There were many boats around the beach. Those were used by fishermen to catch the fish in the night. And some stalls sold roasted fish in the seaside. We could choose the fish we wanted, and the seller would roast it with the flavors. We could do other activities to wait for it.

Actually there was a fishpond by the beach. It was usually used for fishing. But, we were not fishing. Because the purpose of going there was not to it. 

Shortly the roasted fish wes ready. And we ate together in the seaside. We could both eating  and enjoying the scenery. Actually I have gone to this beach at many times, since it is nearby my house. But going to interseting place with family is always exciting. After eating the roasted fish, we went home. I came to house about 5 p.m.  It was short trip, but we were so excited.

I love Kebaya


This picture below was taken when I attendend the high school graduation. It was about 2 years ago. I will not tell about my graduation, but what I wore. Since it's formal event, my friends and I wore Kebaya

Kebaya is typical clothing which originates from Indonesia. It is worn by women and usually in the formal event, such as wedding, graduation, etc . It is usually worn with batik as a bottom. It is sometimes made from sheer material such as silk, thin cotton or semi-transparent nylon orpolyester, adorned with brocade or floral pattern embroidery. Kebaya has diverse style. It depend on necessary and event.

I wore cream-colored kebaya with golden lace tied around the waist. It resembles to balinese kebaya. It always match with hair style like bun. But it's just a simple style of kebaya. On the wedding kebaya, it is more complex. Kebaya has diverse patterns on it. 

Anyhow, I love wearing kebaya. It looks elegant. And it is simple to use.

Do you have experience wearing kebaya?

Ijen Crater

Hello everyone,

Today something catching my mind to write is Ijen crater. Indonesian called it Kawah Ijen. The crater is in  Ijen volcano. Again and again it is in my hometown, Banyuwangi. My sister get used to blabbing about this one. Because this crater has wonderful scenery to visit.

Just a little story, I've ever been bothered by my friend room's smell. it smelled weird. Then, she told me that that weird smell came out from the some unique scluptures made from brimstone, shaped various kinds of animal. And she said she got it from Ijen crater. He bought it from the souvenir shop. Those souvenir are so cute, but It's better to put them in the place with good air turnover. So the smell will not bother anyone's nose.

Back to the Ijen crater, as mentioned, it has a one-kilometer-wide turquoise-colored acid crater lake. Actually Ijen crater is in the frontier of Banyuwangi and Bondowoso. So, it can be reached from both Banyuwangi and Bondowoso. We can see a lot of sulfur miners who climb and go down the crater. They carry the yellowish stone on their basket by walking.


 FYI, the principal attraction of Ijen is the large crater lake that has much sulfur, which lies hidden between sheer walls of deeply furrowed rock at more than 200 meters. Moreover, it has blue fire phenomenon that there are only two in the world. And that blue fire can only be seen clearly in the dawn. After the dawn, sunrise is amazing as well. It's perfect!!

Pulau Merah


I just realized that there are many beautiful places in my hometown. And since it is located in eaternmost of East Java it has a lots of beach.. But I didn't go to all that place yet. Therefore, today I'd like to write about the place I've ever visited. That's it, Pulau Merah Beach.


In English, Pulau Merah means "Red Island". I don't know why it is named like that. But there are two faith about it. Several said that it's named like that because it has reddish colored sand, and the others said that the island emitted the red light formerly.

This place has typical scenery, that's an island fulfilled by plants and the trees. When the tide is low, we can walk to the island. But if it is not, we can go toward the island by hiring the boat. In addition, the beach surrounded by Pandanus tectorius ( Pandanus tree growing at the beach).


It's located in Pesanggaran, Banyuwangi, East Java, Indonesia. It's about 60 km from the downtown.  It means that this beach is not too far from Teluk Hijau Beach.

It won't make us regret. When the sun goes down, the sky turns into golden. That increases the beauty of this beach. It's so fabulous, right?

To the eastern of Pulau Merah beach, we will look the range of mountain. It is so perfect beach.

What's your opinion about this beach?

Teluk Hijau


It's been a long time since my last post. I had no idea to fill this new blog. But now, as my blog title mentioned, "me, them, and everything around me", I have new notion. Since I live in Indonesia, I will write everything around it.

Well, I have a long long holiday now. And when anybody has a holiday, they definitely think somewhere to visit. And somewhere I interested in is "Teluk Hijau", or we can say "Green Bay". Yet, the local residents call it "Teluk Ijo".  I never go there, but I wish I will.


This beautiful beach is exactly located in Pesanggaran, Banyuwangi, East Java, Indonesia. Nevertheless, this beach is excluded and still unknown by many people. So, the scenery is pure yet. The way to reach is bumpy and a little hard. It would rather walk than ride vehicle to reach it. But the beautiful scenery will pay for that. 

It has green blue sea with beautiful scenery. The colorful coral add the beauty. And the soft white sand has it's self attraction. There is waterfall near to it. Moreover, this place near to others beautiful place, such as Rajegwesi beach and Sukamade beach. We will have interesting travelling to do.

that's wonderful place, isn't it? Are you interested in visiting that?
