Jom Gaya Hidup Sihat ~ Makan dan Exercise

Another chapter of my exercise diary .. hidup Misz-ella camni la .. kalau tak kerja, exercise. Kalau tak kat Event kat Gym. Tu je la tempat...

Lombok 2015 (Day 3) - Air Terjun Mount Rinjani (Sindang Gila), Masjid Kuno Bayan Keleq, Warung Menega

Day 3 at Gili Trawangan Island ~ Woke up at 5am to watched the sunrise. Ella is crazy .. she slept very late .. at 1 or 2 am and woke up so early .. i dah biasa sebenarnya .. so used to that routine. 













Sunrise at Gili Trawangan Beach *ohhhh  ... jatuh cinta dan terpesona*







Our last breakfast at Gili T Resort



Then we walked around the island since our Boat is scheduled only at 10:30 am.  



The ferry that brought us to Pangkalan Harbour at Lombok Island. The cost is IDR15,000/person. The journey is 35 minutes. The ferry bukan sahaja membawa manusia tetapi lain-lain barang juga. Ayam, Itik, kambing pun ada. Hahaha. Again, my travelmate Yana mabuk laut. Dia sakit kepala dan rasa tidak selesa .. angin Lombok mahu bermesra dengan dia barangkali. Tapi kan, bagaimana lah tak sakit kepala .. botnya bergolek-golek dilambung ombak kuat. Kalau kita tak tahan, memang akan mabuk lah jawapannya.

Tips :- Wear a rubber shoes i.e. Crocs shoes during your trip in this island cos they dont like to use Jetty so you will intend to get wet.

Tips : Buy the ticket only when you are ready to depart cos once you miss the boat, your ticket is considered cancel. Like our case, we have to buy one additional ticket cos we missed the boat. 



Bintang is the famous beer brand in Gili Trawangan Island. Orang Gili minum beer macam minum Mineral Water. I guess its Cheap ~ IDR12,000-IDR20,000. Hehehe.




Arrived at Pangkalan Harbour, our Driver @ Travel Guide sudah menunggu. First destination is lunch. Ayam Bakar Taliwang is the Sasak's ethnic signature food. Its nice and juicy. Their tofu is so delicious and 'Pelicing Kangkung' is also one of the Sasak's signature dish too. Sedap-sedap makanan kaum Sasak ini semuanya. Yana was still sick at this time .. so Misz-ella became her 'Tukang Urut' - gave her my magic touch and after that ...Yeayyy !! Yana is back to normal. Wahhh Ella is multi-tasking .. I can be a Massager too. LOL!!




First destination in Lombok is Air Terjun Tiu Kelep dan Air Terjung Sendang Gila at the feet of Mount Rinjani. This place is a MUST visit in Lombok Island.


Mount Rinjani's photo taken while we were on the way to the Waterfall




Its so hot and dry in Lombok during our trip. But windy. I LIKE.


The track to the Waterfall is beautiful. Not difficult at all but a bit tiring .. 409 staircase to the Sindang Gila Waterfall. But its fun!! Reallly fun! Just walk slowly and enjoy the wind and scenery. I do not mind to repeat again.  


The entrance fee is IDR10,000 per person not inclusive of the Guide fee. You are not allow to walk alone in this area, must be guided by the Tour Guide. We do not have to pay for the Guide fee as we have Arix with us. Yess!! Big savings for our wallet ya.

Oopsss stop! Lets Wefie. Hello Hai .. meet Arix Valentino my Travel Guide in Lombok Island. He is fun, handsome and friendly. He speaks good English. Call/Whatsapp him at +081936555980 to use his Service. Arix took care of us in Lombok Island. He brought us to all the interesting places. Itinerary and Schedule prepared by him. Happy la with Arix. 










Yeayyy .. lets mandi air terjun. Sejuk. Bersih.


Then we proceed to the Sindang Gila Waterfall. The journey is more challenging as we have to pass by a river. Wet Wet Wet .. its all about getting yourself wet in Lombok. Tak payah berangan nak kering or bergaya lawa ye kawan-kawan. Make sure you wear a right shoe. The Key Word in Lombok is WET. Hahaha.


Ohhhh .. the big stone. Be careful. Energy friends .. you need a lot of energy here.



Ohhh the river ..


Sempat posing lagi ye .. Hahaha.


There is a bridge too

Clean and cold


After almost 20 minutes hiking, we saw the Sindang Gila Waterfall. Wah .. so excited!


Oh Myyy .. its such a beautiful waterfall. The water is fresh and clean, the oxygen that we breath is fresh, no pollution, no smell, no rubbish. I am one happy person to witness the beautiful creation by God. Sungguh bahagia rasa hati dapat melihat alam ciptaan Allah SWT yang sangat indah ini. Berbaloi perjalanan meredah hutan, sungai, menaiki ratusan tangga dan titi serta membasahkan diri. Cantik. Sangat cantik.





We met few more Malaysian travellers group and lets We-Fie. Thanks Aisyah Abdullah who Whatsapp me this photo. Travel menjalin ukhwah sesama insan. Saya suka dapat tambah kenalan. Yeayy !!

Dah puas mandi sampai menggeletar dan kecut satu badan, kita bersiap untuk ke tempat seterusnya. Journey back is interesting too. We went back through the Water tunnel. Challenging!!

Before enter the Water Tunnel ~ We were asked to be careful. The Water Tunnel is dark, watched out your steps .. the water flow is quite strong at a certain spot. Look up for any 'besi' or trees. Most of the time, we need help from the handphone's light. Interesting and challenging. Nice experienced!


Finally we are out of the Water Tunnel. No more nervous but so happy. We made it ya. Yeayy !! Anyone who visited Lombok, please do not forget to experienced this. Best lah!



On the way to another destination ~ Masjid Kuno Bayan Beleq. Seronok naik kereta dengan Arix. He loves talking and singing. I loved the Indonesian song that he played too. Recommended!! Add Arix Valentino at Facebook and tell him Misz-ella recommended you.


Macam kampung kau tak da Sawah, kan. Hahaha. Ella loves green so lets take photo at this spot. Cantik sawah padi hijau, kan. Ohhh ada orang kata kaki saya kecik. Yess .. kaki i macam Cinderella .. kecik dan comel je. Thanks to Yana Halim who bought me this shoes. Tq Adik.


Masa ni tiba-tiba rindu pada yang ditinggalkan nun jauh di seberang. Miss all my kesayangan .. how i wished they are here to witness this beautiful creations by God. Next time. yeahhh .. next time. I definitely will come to Lombok again. Gue udah jatuh cinta lah. Haha.

Masjid Kuno Bayan Beleq. Hurmmmm .. very weird name. So excited to check it out .. the more weird it is .. the more it attracts me. Hehehe.


Masjid Kuno Bayan Beleq


Islam began in Lombok in Bayan. Masjid Kuno Bayan Beleq is the oldest mosque in Lombok, built in the 17th century and is now aged 300 years. This mosque is being  used only during a special occasion i.e. during the celebration of Prophet Muhammad birthday. Its not being used for daily activities anymore. Sekali pandang, macam rumah biasa sahaja .. langsung tak kelihatan seperti Masjid. No wonder it is called 'Masjid Kuno' referring to how antique it is, built in the 17th Century.


There is a 'beleq' (cemetry/tomb) for Gaus Abdul Rozak, the first propogator of Islam inside the mosque. Dikatakan Masjid ini berpenunggu. Gendang di dalamnya akan berbunyi pada waktu-waktu tertentu. Katanya ..











Shopping local snacks/food to bring. Lombok is famous with its Seaweed Crackers. So many flavours of Seaweed here. So creative!


Seafood Dinner at Warung Menega, Batu Layar Beach. Ohh murah. 


Set Ikan bakar, Clam, King Prawn dan Squid Skewers ni IDR95,000 sahaja seorang. When in Lombok, seafood is a must other than Ayan Taliwang. Its cheap and fresh.



Each sets come with Fruit Juice


We ordered 3 sets for 3 persons :- IDR285,000. Mana nak dapat harga camni kat tempat kita, kan. Murah dan sedap.



Finally we Check In at Sunset House Lombok, Pantai Batu Layar, Senggigi ~ our home for the next 2 nights in Lombok.


Day 1 is fun. Day 2 is adventures and fun too. Day 3 is amazingly good experienced for us. Best. Best. Lombok sangat best. Cant wait to share our Day 4 with you, readers. Wait for next Entry, k. Bye.
