Indonesia; Bandung @ Tangkuban Perahu

Tangkuban Perahu (spelt Tangkuban Parahu in the local Sundanese dialect) is a stratovolcano 30 km north of the city of Bandung, the provincial capital of West JavaIndonesia. It erupted in 1826, 1829, 1842, 1846, 1896, 1910, 1926, 1929, 1952, 1957, 1961, 1965, 1967, 1969, 1983, and 2013. The name translates roughly to "upturning of (a) boat" or "upturned boat" in Sundanese, referring to the local legend of its creation. The story tells of "Dayang Sumbi", a beauty who lived in West Java. She cast away her son "Sangkuriang" for disobedience, and in her sadness was granted the power of eternal youth by the gods. After many years in exile, Sangkuriang decided to return to his home, long after the two had forgotten and failed to recognize each other. Sangkuriang fell in love with Dayang Sumbi and planned to marry her, only for Dayang Sumbi to recognize his birthmark just as he was about to go hunting. In order to prevent the marriage from taking place, Dayang Sumbi asked Sangkuriang to build a dam on the river Citarum and to build a large boat to cross the river, both before the sunrise. Sangkuriang meditated and summoned mythical ogre-like creatures -buto ijo or green giant(s)- to do his bidding. Dayang Sumbi saw that the tasks were almost completed and called on her workers to spread red silk cloths east of the city, to give the impression of impending sunrise. Sangkuriang was fooled, and upon believing that he had failed, kicked the dam and the unfinished boat, resulting in severe flooding and the creation of Tangkuban Perahu from the hull of the boat. - wikipedia

akan aku
rindu setiap kebencian hari ini.
rindu setiap maki siang hari.
rindu setiap tawa sumbing palsu.
rindu setiap umpat makhluk sempurna. 
rindu setiap langkah di malam hina.
rindu setiap bau hamis ketiak.
rindu setiap suapan percuma.
rindu setiap si pengecut bachol.
rindu setiap pelahap gedenpol.
rindu setiap jeling sombong si pelacur.
rindu setiap lagak mahal orang kaya.
rindu setiap janji si penipu.
rindu setiap ayat pengoda jalanan.
rindu setiap detik salam pekenalan.
rindu setiap senyum manis teman.
rindu setiap detik bersama.
rindu setiap pengalaman beharga...
biar buruk kita nampak jelas.
biar buruk ajar kita erti keihlasan..
biar semua yg kita ada hari ini jadi pengajaran yang kita rindu selamanya

It is owned by Chalermchai Kositpipat, who designed, constructed, and opened it to visitors in 1997. It is open all year round and admission is free.

Thailand ; Chiang Rai @ Karen Long Neck Village

Various village locations between Chiang Mai and the Golden Triangle
people Karen are a tribal group who have historically lived in the hills on the Myanmar (formerly Burma) side of the Thai border. Best recognized for their elongated necks, the Karen women wear heavy brass rings around their necks, forearms, and shins. While the Karen men are mainly field workers and farmers, the women have a rich history of crafting from wood carving to weaving. Overall the Long Neck Tribes live a rugged, tedious, and simple lifestyle, but the fruits of their labor are colorful and very lively. 

Thailand; Chiang Rai @ Border of Myanmar (Burma)

Mae Sai, or locally more often, Maesai, (แม่สาย) is the northernmost city of Thailand. It is mainly a stepping stone for visits to Myanmar and has few attractions of its own.
