When a lot of people trying to have a good time in europe or america or so whatever, i *in humble tone* went to cirebon, Indonesia. It is west Java, a small city, land of prawns called Cirebon. My dad works there for more than 2 years so i went there often. He works at Indonesian Bank so he go home to Jakarta every week at friday and come back again to Cirebon on Monday.
Since my dad works here, i kinda found a place that i can be relax all the time. Not like Jakarta that full of crowd and traffic jam, here in Cirebon i feel calm. There’s no traffic jam, i easily go to somewhere i want. Also Cirebon is a small city so i easy to adapt. I have a small house here and i really love it, although i have a big house in Jakarta but i love the small one more. The only thing that i hate about Cirebon is the weather. Cirebon placed near the sea so the weather is pretty humid with very bright sun. I have to always bring my sunglasses because i cant stand with the light coming through.
in this time of vacation, i went to Cirebon with my family, aunty and cousins. My cousins are bule but have a half Indonesian blood from my aunt. They study at JIS, Jakarta International School and lived in Kemang. My aunt really really obsessed with Cirebon, she always said that she want to go here. The easiest way to go to Cirebon is by train so we went to gambir. When i arrived and saw them standing in the middle of train station, i was just….. shocked. they brought a lot, i mean, really really a lot, of things. even they brought they own pillow. and for the information, i have 3 cousins and each person brought their own laptop, crazy? yeah. if i were them, i simply bring only one. they also brought their coolbox for the drinks and bring lots of food. HUFT.
The next day, i bring them sight seeing to the historical place. The first place was “Pemandian Cigugur” or like a pool to swim or just play with fish. my cousins face is just hilarious because they dont match with the places hehehe in a funny way of course.
After that we went to Cibulan, almost the same thing with Cigugur but better place. They seems little bit norak. but hehe its ok. They lived in indonesia for about 10 years or so but they didnt really mingle with the people here.
