Finally myfriend zanty came and yaaayy we were ready for the trip .. first we bought the souvenirs, snack for our colleagues, friends and famz we bought some spicy cassava crisps and so on so on.. i saw lots buildings hotels, houses were being renovated and rebuilt. The huge earthquake hit Padang - west sumatra in 2009 and i still remember the shaking. it was the biggest earthquake i ever had.
When i was in west sumatra island I Visited :
1. Jam Gadang / Massive Clock
This is the landmark of Bukit Tinggi. You havent been in west Sumatra if you not visit this landmark. The location is in the middle of the town, very near from zanty's house, we walk just 5 minutes. As a center town, the location near this clock usually busy and crowded. People enjoy chilling in this area. Not far from the clock there is a traditional market called Pasar Atas. We can find many thing in there, They sell various hand woven, moslem praying mat, souvenirs, hand made textile, everything. Do not forget to bargain a half price from the offering price :D
2. Singkarak Lake
The lake is very big and has a great panoramic view, we had lunch near the lake, and the bought bili fish 3 KG :D zanty said the fish is the best fish ever, and only n can be found in sumatra specifically near the singkarak lake because the fish only lives in there
3. Pagaruyung Palace
Me and mates were dressed up as minangs brides hahahah Corney but it was cool and fun when we sud wear minangs wedding gown and of course we look so lovely :) *wink* well the gown so colorful and nott forget the crown we used, its called "suntiang" the real bride sould use the suntiang and the weight of the suntiang is almost 5 KG.. its sooo heavy dude J
4. Ngarai Sianok / Sianok Valley
Located in the center of Bukit Tinggi, Ngarai Sianok offers great view, there are many monkeys living in ngarai sianok, they were acting so lovely. I love monkeys their face are so cute. We can feed them with nuts or bananas. they are happy when we feed them. Don't be scared they not bite and they are so friendly.
5. Harau Cliff
So far this is the highest cliff/valley i have ever seen, on myway to harau its truly breathtaking :D two hours drive from Bukit Tinggi, the harai is located in Payakumbuh district. There is a waterfall near the cliff, but if its dry season, theres a little water in this waterfall. The water is so cold, the air is so frest and the place itself is worth a visit.
to be continued :D
