qsha9 Indonesia has 129 volcanoes including the one in the photo - Mount Lokon. Together with Mount Empung it is a twin volcano.
This mountain is located in Tomohon, above the Tondano plains. The most recent eruption was in 2012 if I'm not wrong.

qsha9 Our room in Sintesa Peninsula has 180 degree view of Manado town. And I'm loving it. What a view to wake up to.

Marina hotel was convenient also. This hotel is even better. But just the simple fact we got two accommodations for free is beyond imagination already. I'm so grateful~

qsha9 Good morning to you. Bleh~ here is a "just-woke-up" selfie. Look at my brows all gone. But I'm loving my skin~ I'm getting there. clear skin... Here I come, wait for me. Last day of holiday. Going on a trip to the lake today & expecting (or more like preparing) my tummy for a whole lot of food.

qsha9 Today is what locals call "Pengucapan Day". It's sort of like harvest festival. Locals brought their crops to the church today and gave it as offering to the Lord, as a symbolism of gratitude for blessing them with land and fruitfulness.
Locals also cooked a whole lot of meals with their crops and livestock & open their house for lots and lots of guests. Basically a huge feast festival where many different villages participate. And add huges speakers banging dangdut and masamper songs to the whole festivity!

It was very full and packed today. But I'm in the hotel already now. Here is a shot of today's sunset I managed to capture on the way home.

P.S: sorry for the grainy photo. I still haven't got enough saving to buy new camera hoping to still be able to show you all great shots even with iPhone's limited camera.

qsha9 I can no longer count the number of churches I've seen these past 28 hours in Manado. Name any Christian denominations you know, and most probably there's a church for it in Manado. Last I read, by the end of 2012, there were about 845 churches. In fact, there's mormon and jehovah witness churches and even Jewish synagogue.

qsha9 Found this little cutie pie in front of one of my grandparent's house. Love the color of its fur! Wish I could take it home sadly I couldn't.

qsha9 In case you do not believe the amount of coconut trees my eyes saw today; here is another shot of it. Anyway, good night from Manado. Looking forward to "pengucapan" day tomorrow! #CocoMadeMeDoIt #goodlcuktravels 2d

qsha9 Earlier today... Only a few minutes landed in Manado and everywhere I look to, there would always be coconut tree growing high.
Sulut is an area well known to produce the largest amount of coconut in Indonesia, which contributes in making Indonesia the world's largest coconut exporter.

I had a chance to have fresh grilled fish and fresh coconut water for lunch. If man only live by fish & coconut... I might move here right away.

qsha9 Picked up by my brother and his wife then went straight to a restaurant for quick lunch. Ordered grilled fish and asked them specifically to separate the chilli, but they ignore the request. I tried eating it, but it was WAY too spicy for me. I had to order another portion of grilled fish, and this time they did as I requested. My inability to eat spicy meals makes my family question whether or not I am from Sulut. Anyone ever experienced something? Is there anything particular that your family/heritage do/eat than you're not able to do/eat?? Tell me about it.

Anyway, Ever since I came back from Turkey, my obsession towards pattern tiles have increased. Here's a shot of the colorful tiles decorating the floors of the restaurant.

qsha9 Yay! Finally flying again! Bye bye Bali~ Island home, I will miss you like always.

Arrived in Sam Ratulangi Airport with mom safely. It's 31 degrees; definitely hot, I'm liking it! But now I'm starting to think that wearing all black isn't exactly the wisest idea. Manado... Treat me well for the next two days please.

P.S: Unlike some people, I really do listen to Metallica.

qsha9 Seaside, sound of waves, grilled fish, coconut, candle lights, family... I hope everyone are having a delightful dinner tonight, because I am.

The kid in frame is the smartest and the cutest of all my cousins so far. Also the most good looking one. I think as of now, he is one that I will miss the most when I'm away frm home.
He loves to shove his big tummy to me, and shoves his butt to me when he poops, he loves to bite and pinch my cheek, he sends me kisses and says see you to me everytime he leaves the house, he talks back and forth with me like he's 5 years older than his age (although he cannot pronounce my name & calls me ica instead) and... When I bother him, he says 하지마 (hajima: Korean for "don't") instead of "jangan" to me.
Is it wrong to wish that my little cousin could become my kid? He's so adorable. I wanna have a baby like him.

qsha9 Tomorrow is my last day at home island - Bali. Need to force myself to go to the beach once more before I leave. Need to store more sunlight, sea scent and salt on my skin... I'm gonna need it 'cause I'm afraid I won't see home until the end of the year. (Although I really hope I can miraculously get money to come home somehow) 5d

qsha9 I want to collect more Little Pony items. I've got a Little Pony tshirt and I feel like I need a jacket or a bag. The other day I saw a small Little Pony trunk bag and I really wanted to buy it. But felt like the shop attendant was judging me 😑😑😑 Without make up I look way younger than my age already, I really should stop buying things that would make me look even younger. I'm such a kid.

qsha9 It's amazing how relentlessly loving God is. No matter how far I stray and how wrong I've done, He and His words never stop reprimanding me. No matter how many times I've failed to follow through & keep my promises, He and His words never leaves. I am so thankful that He is God. If it wasn't Him I don't think I'd be receiving this much grace and mercy. Other god would be impatient towards me and I'd be burning in hell or striked to death already by now. Nothing seems right, and mostly because of my own hasty decisions... But one thing I realize now. I just have to look to Him. And get to know Him. And that's all that matters. That makes things much better than they are. 1w
