Which one?

Last couple days, I were tasked to attend the National Coordinating Meeting of IPB alumni association (Rakornas HA IPB). It was held at IICC Bogor and attended by more than 20 regional representatives, IPB Professors and others.
One of the main highlight of the event was presentation session by two presidential candidates. Each of them were given time to explain their view on agriculture, to be spesific Agriculture Revolution on Agricultural Development. Sadly, both of candidates didn't show up and replaced by their representatives.
One of main reason I attended the event was to take notes on both candidates view on required topic. First session was given to Mr. Aunur Rofiq, representatives for Candidate number 1. He covered most of things we expected to know about the candidates view and programs on agriculture. Lot of question arised, and Mr. Rofiq can answer them wisely.
A different method was found on another session. Candidates number 2 represented by Mr. Anies Baswedan. We, audiences, didn't find anything from him about required topic, agriculture revolution on agricultural development. Mr. Baswedan explained by personal approach, not mention any significant things about agriculture. To be frank, it really upsetting how the candidates number 2 didn't appreciate the host by not mention any vission or program on agriculture. Come on!! You were invited by HA least send someone who understand the topic.

Food in Hongkong

Hongkong were famous for its vast variety of food either food stalls or the restaurants. They have so many reputated restaurant, include our hotel's restaurant.

It's not that easy for us actually. We have to find 'halal food'. There were several listed halal restaurant provided by HK's tourism board, but it not that easy to find it and also regarding our itinerary. Even at hotel breakfast time, we have to choose the food carefully.

We find some of Indian and Middle East restaurant labeled halal. For Indonesian people who would travel to HK, those restaurant can be picked. But you have to mind the portion, it was a BIG one - you can share one serving for two person.

Disneyland Hongkong, Dream Theme Park (not me)

What a packed first day we had in HK. After Ngong Ping Village and saw the Big Buddha, journey continued. The next destination was Disneyland Hongkong, one of two of Disneyland franchise in Asia. We take another MTR trip, there was a special line for Disneyland. It start on Sunny Bay  Station and the MTR train only travel to and from Disneyland.

It's Chinnese's New Year week when we got there so there were significant visitor at that time. Still, not as crowded as Ruins of St. Paul (other stories).

Disneyland were not as vast as Ocean Park but it still can make your feet trembling hehe. Disneyland had a great charm especially for kids. However, personally I didn't feel that charm. The only things that impressed me was the parade, it was entertaining. We tried some of the rides, but the only thing that stick in our mind was they had a very loooong queue.

Overall, I would prefer Ocean Park than Disneyland if I given the chance to re-visit Hongkong.

Off to Ngong Ping Village

Our first itinerary in HK is Ngong Ping Village. For those who aware...its one of RM itinerary. So what if I plan the trip based on my bias...sue me :)
After dropped our baggage at hotel, we continue the trip for day one. We need to go to Prince Edward MTR St, its only 5 min walk from hotel. We still need to change line at Lai King in order to reach Thung Chung (last station for orange line).
Only a moment walk from Thung Chung station, we've reached the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car. You can choose how to reach Ngong Ping Village by any transportation mode. We choose to use the cable car, it took shorter time and the scenery along were magnificent. It took about 25 min to reach the village.
Ngong Ping Village's main attraction is The Giant Buddha. To reach the highest platform, we need to climb hundreds of stairs. This village was used as a background in various china movies.
I saw some people were praying, but most of other only visiting. Not like my experience in Thailand. Although most of Thai are Buddhist, but they also had lot of religious tourist. Maybe they prefer go to the temple at HK island.
We spent some time in this village, and then use the cable car to go back. We're heading to second place on our itinerary. And its DISNEYLAND ppl!! ^^

Hong kong's MTR were simply superb. I really find the public transportation are fascinating. It's easy and reliable transportation mode. Wondering when this kind of transportation worked at Jakarta.
You can use your octopus card to hop in a MTR. You can also use your card to pay other that mtr and shop long as it used in HK only.

Another story from day one

Dang!! Always forget to write down a blog. Sawry.... here we come...

We arrived quite early at HK, about 6 am. First thing we do after finished the immigration stuff is to find place that sell airport express ticket and octopus card. Octopus card is a must have things when you travel to HK.
HK Int'l Airport is a large one, but thankfully it easy to understand by we foreigners. Actually, I little bit confused myself when search for the ticket booth. I think the airport express and octopus card we're sold at different place, eventually it's not like that. We could easily buy the AE and OC at the same place...and it really easy to spot on.
We took the AE to Kowloon Station, it only take about 20 min or less to reach the station. From Kowloon Station, we took shuttle bus to our hotel (free of charge ppl!!). The traffic were very light, maybe because that was still morning. It took about 18 min to reach our hotel. Because we arrive too early, we couldn't check in (to rooms) at that time being. So, we just leave our baggages at concierge.

And then....the journey begin....
