First Week in Jogja

We arrived at Tugu Station at 9 pm., with a pouring rain we try to keep walking to look for a taxi. A friend of mine giving me a suggestion to rent a taxi outside the station building, because it is cheaper than the inside one.

“FK UGM pak!” my husband shout at the old man who asking us where we want to go.
“30.000 mas” I heard 80.000, but my husband asking him once more just to make sure.
“30.000?” It less than my friend’s suggestion which is about 50.000 to take us from Tugu Station to FK UGM. Finally, we chose to take the driver order, because it’s getting night and colder.

We decide to stay at Talenta 2 Hostel near FK UGM, and continue to look for a boarding room for me at tomorrow morning.
At 7am o’clock, we take a walk to PPB UGM, we surprised because at 7am the students, doctors, and lecturers are already go to campus. I just imagine 7am o’clock in Gebang and Keputih, I’m pretty sure that there only a quite road with one or two ladies bring their groceries from the nearest traditional market.

My first Institutional IELTS Test begin at 8am, it means we have less than one hour to breakfast, we carefully chose the food with a low price, because we don’t want to make the same mistake as the last time we arrived to Jogja about a month ago.

After take my test, we look for a rent room near FK UGM, we walk about 3 kilometres far away and we finally found the good and appropriate one, the closest from PPB UGM. I’m very happy, so he is.. because he can stay for maximum 3 days in my room, Alhamdulillah šŸ˜€

In the evening, we try to go by Trans Jogja, it’s very comfortable and suitable for me šŸ™‚ clean and simple.. We go to Malioboro, and buy the most delicious lumpia we ever ate, and we have a dinner in Pempek Palembang near Mirota Kampus. Oh I’m very sad because the next day, my husband must go back to Surabaya and I have to stay alone here šŸ˜¦

Anyway, I enclose my boarding room pictures below, in Jalan Kesehatan Jogjakarta šŸ™‚ Hopefully, I could make the best part in my life here šŸ™‚ Bismillah..
