Zhijin Cave of Guizhou

If you went to Guiyang for sightseeing, then this destination must be one of the destination which is being included in your bucket list. Zhijin Cave has a quite enormous area, which is 307 square kilometers, though they made it quite convenient for you to walk around inside the cave. Once you get inside the cave, there's no turn around, since the exit is on the other side of the cave. It takes me around 1.5~2 hours to finish touring around this cave. And there's a lot of STAIRS. So if you have weak leg problems, or anything similar, I would recommend you not to visit here. Since there's no cable car or whatsoever, and you only can walk around with your own two feet.
On our way to the cave
Since there's a long walk from the parking lot to the ticketing gate, and there's quite a little bit of walk from the ticketing gate to the cave area. Luckily, the weather is not too cold, neither too hot for a walk, so we have quite a really enjoyable walk around the area. =D
Waiting for our guide to buy tickets for us
If you'd like to get into the place, Zhijin cave management side will let one of their local guide to accompany us inside, to give us brief stories about the cave and guide us along the way through the exit. But too bad that the guide only talk in Chinese, so for you who don't understand Chinese, you might have some difficulties in knowing the story about the cave and everything inside.
When we went down the pave to the cave, there's lot of calligraphy writings alongside the stone walls by famous people, writing down about their feeling about the place. And I get to take pictures with one of the text, which means "World No. 1 Cave", which I think describe the place really well. ^^
Walking along the stairs inside the cave, you'll get to see lots of beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. Though you will still need your imagination to see things around you. The picture above is one of the stalactites which looks like a Pipa (lute), which is one of the traditional Chinese instrument. Do you get to see it as well?
The guide said that these things will keep growing and keep making out various shapes. But, there are also some of the stone which has stop growing. To differentiate between the growing ones and the stop growing ones, are by touching the stone whether it still feel wet or not. If it still wet and you can feel the stone is slightly a little bit watery, meaning that the stone is still growing and might form into something different a few year later.
And this is the main attraction from this cave. Reason is this stone grow to be a lot like general helmet. It might look just so-so in the picture, but when you see it by yourself, it gives off a certain vibe which makes it look stunning. Ah, and at this spot, you'll get to take a free picture. Well, taking picture is free, but if you wanna get your photo from the exit door, then you will have to pay a certain amount of RMB.
Last but not least, on your way out of the cave (p.s. you will have to climb your way up to get out of the cave. Yes you don't see it wrong. CLIMB your way up), you will get to see these heavenly scenery from up above, therefore this spot is being called Southern Heaven Gate. The scenery from this spot is definitely, 100% breath taking. You won't believe how much beautiful the nature around you could be. =D
And with this, we end our trip to Zhijin Cave which located in Guizhou Province. I might not want to go back for the second time since it's quite tiring for me, walking on foot for 2 hours. But for you who'd love to try out new place for your holiday destination, then Guizhou might not be a bad idea as well. ^^

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.

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…
