Journey to the West~

If you guys love to watch journey to the west, then you must be familiar with the most lovable character of the stories, which is Sun Wu Kong, the Monkey King. The next place we visit in Guizhou Province, to be exact located in Anshun, is Huangguoshu National Park. Okay, so what is the connection between the national park and the monkey king series?

Since in this national park, there's quite a few site attractions you can see, the first thing you'll get to visit is Luo Si Tan waterfall, which located in the national park. In the entrance to the first waterfall, you will be able to notice these statues.
Those are the main characters from Journey to The West~! You have Sun Wu Kong, Zhu Ba Jie, the Monk and Wu Jing. Well, the reason is to give a memorial statue, since it is said that they take a lot of scene in this area.
Especially, nearby the area above, which is also our first destination of the national park, the famous Luo Sitan Waterfall. ^^ Beside the waterfall, there's a little road which is named "Journey to the West" path, where they made every important scene statue in the area, so you can more or less get what "Journey to the West" story is about.
Next destination is the famous Aquatic Stone Forest, though this place doesn't have anything to do with "Journey to The West", the origin of this place is quite unique itself.
So it is said that a long, long time ago, this place is actually an ocean. A one big ocean itself, but one day the ocean dried up (the guide didn't tell us what the reason is so I dunno as well), and what's left are these gigantic stones, forming like a forest stone. So, every single stone you see here is those can be found deep down the ocean.
Another cute thing about this place is that they have dates on their stone. So you basically just need to follow the stone dated 1st January up to 31st December to get out of the place. And in the end of the place you'll get to see the house below, which is said another shooting place of Journey to the West, which shoot the scene of the Zhu Ba Jie trying to marry some girl here.
Once you walk past down the stream and taking another bus (the bus which takes you from one attraction place to another attraction place in the national park) to the next destination. You'll get to see the main attraction of this national park.
So as to why this last attraction site has a direct connection with the monkey king character is because if you remember what the monkey king has always been saying about himself is, "I'm Sun Wu Kong, from Huaguo Mountain, Shuilian Cave!" And so here it is~! Where the monkey king lives~!
To get to this spot, you have two alternatives, whether to walk or to get down by a very long escalator. If you choose to take the escalator then you'll have to pay RMB 50 for a trip down, and another RMB 50 for a trip up, so it'll cost you RMB 100 in total. The most expensive escalator you'll get to take in the world (?).
What so special about this place is that behind the waterfall curtain, there's a cave, which is called Suilian Cave. You can get into the cave to see how it looks like inside, but it's said the place is super narrow and kind of slippery, so if you're not a fan of hiking or doing any outdoor activities, you might want to refrain yourself to go through the cave and just see it from faraway. It will take you around 30 minutes from this spot to the cave.
I don't get to see what's inside, but my dad went to take a look and he said that it's not that narrow and not that slippery as what has been told by the guide. And I kinda regret that I didn't go to see what's inside~ T-T

Miryang Gang Rape = Signal's Last Unsolved Case?

If you're a fan of this Korean drama, Signal, which obviously I am then you would know that they're on their last case which tells about a gang rape which happens in a small city, Inju. A lot of people has been debating on whether this case is based on true events which happens back in Miryang in 2004. And once again the case which happened 12 years ago is getting people's attention.
Kalau kamu juga penggemar setia drama Korea berjudul "Signal", aku adalah salah satu penggemar beratnya, kamu pasti tahu kalau drama ini tengah dalam episode di mana mereka sedang berusaha memecahkan kasus terakhir mereka di mana terjadinya pemerkosaan beramai-ramai yang terjadi di sebuah daerah kecil, Inju. Banyak orang yang berpendapat kalau kasus ini dibuat berdasarkan kejadian yang pernah terjadi di Miryang di tahun 2004. Dan sekali lagi, kasus yang terjadi 12 tahun lalu itu memancing perhatian orang-orang. Last week episodes has been making my emotions to go up and down, and cry…

Seoul Plastic Surgery : Real Story for Breast Augmentation~ Operasi Plastik di Korea : Pembesaran Payudara~

I have always wanted a glamorous body. I have a flat chest, which makes me feel inferior when I have to go to the beach with a bunch of friends, where my friends wear beautiful bikini, while I'm only able to take a look and feel envy of it.
Dr. Kim Dong Gyu is one of the best korean surgeon in breast surgery, and can be considered as top breast surgeon in Korea. Dr. Kim is stationed in Izien Plastic Surgery Hospital, which has won several Customer Satisfaction Awards since 2011 up to 2014. This make me feel more comfortable to have the surgery here. Since I decided to go on with the surgery, the nurses took me to the 3rd floor for a blood sample, so you can see a bandage on my hand when I took my before pictures. ^^
The surgeon gives a very detailed consultation on my current breast problem, how he will do the surgery and what type of implants he will be using. I was amazed by how patient he is to answer my questions 1 by 1, as you knew that many Korean Surgeons are very impatient…

Horse Oil Mask~ Masker Kuda~

It's been quite sometime since I've updated my blog~! LOLZ~ I was away for Chinese New Year vacation, so I've been busy enjoying my time for almost 2 weeks~ I still feel lazy, and can't wait to enjoy my next vacation, which I don't know when.
Kekeke uda lama sekali engga update blog~! Karena sejak 2 minggu lalu, aku balik ke kampung halaman tercinta, yakni Indonesia, buat ngerayain Chinese New Year, berpuas-puas diri buat menikmati waktu luang selama hampir 2 minggu~ Aku masih merasa malas dan engga sabar buat nunggu liburan berikutnya, yang masih belum jelas kapan.

I've been trying this mask since the end of last time and I must say that this horse oil mask is superb, even better than the aquaringer mask sheet which I've been using for quite sometimes. This horse oil mask is being produced by the same company with the aquaringer mask which is 'mediheal'. Or should I just say that this mediheal company did a really good stuff in producing face sheet…
