Lombok in Between

I know I should've written something on my report, but I just couldn't help my self to not write all Lombok experiences. So, please don't let my boss read this, no? :p

During my holiday in Lombok (which divided into three parts, A Day in Jeeva Klui, We Love Gili Trawangan, and Exploring South Lombok with Novotel), guess I miss the parts what we did in between.

Leaving Jeeva Klui, we headed north-west to Bangsal Harbour. On our way there, we stopped by Malimbu Top, took several pictires, and continued our journey. The taxi driver was quite a helper for taking pictures of us. He happened to tell a story about someone who hit a pet cow or pet sheep and had to pay big amount of cash as a retribution for the pet he hit. The amount of cash was bigger than the cash he need to repair his motorbike. We couldn't stop giggling. Lombok is surely hard for the amateur motorcyclist.

Do you happen to hear or know about Gili? Gili means a little island in the middle of the sea. And Lombok has three well-known Gili, which are Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air. Gili Trawangan is one of the biggest of all three.

 Brunch time, we headed north-west to Bangsal Harbour. In Bangsal Harbour, we could cross the sea by using traditional boat own by local people. It was so cheap that you paid no more than IDR 10k for one way. I could say that it's quite safety as it had life vest. The wind and the tides weren't that strong to bowl over the boat.
