[FR] 1 Day Trip to Las Vegas Asia – Macau

Saat pergi ke Hong Kong kurang lengkap rasanya kalau tidak mengunjungi Macau, ya negara bekas jajahan Portugis ini adalah campuran yang luar biasa dari pesona kolonial, budaya China dan kasinonya yang mewah

Sama seperti Hong Kong, Macau juga tidak membutuhkan visa untuk berkunjung ke negara ini jadi cukup siapkan pasport dan tiket saja. Sebelum berangkat saya terlebih dahulu membeli tiket Ferry TurboJet di Klook harganya sekitar 280rb-an sekali jalan, perjalanan akan memakan waktu kurang lebih 1 jam

Setelah sampai, kita harus cek imigrasi karena Hongkong dan Macau memiliki wilayah teritorial yang berbeda. Keluar Macau Ferry terminal lanjut menyebrang ke terowongan bawah tanah yang lumayan kusam ke tempat free suttle bus. banyak bus gratis disini, yang bisa mengantar kita ke casino dan hotel di pulau Macau dan Taipa

Pilih Bus Grand Lisboa warna hijau, kalian cukup antri dan tunjukan kartu identitas karena hanya yang sudah berumur 21+ yang boleh naik

Lanjut menuju Ruin’s St. Paul. Salah satu landmark terkenal di Macau ini adalah gereja yang kini hanya menyisakan bagian depan dan tangga saja yang selamat dari kebakaran.

Puas foto-foto menjelang malam saya lanjut ke Taipa (City of Dream) jalan kaki menuju Hotel Grand Emperor lalu naik free shuttel bus City of Dream waktu perjalanan kurang lebih 20-30 menit.

Lalu melanjutkan jalan kaki menuju Venitian. Di Venitian anda bisa menikmati suasana eropa klasik khas Venice Italy lengkap dengan gondolanya 😀

Buat isi perut didalam Venitian saya membeli kue Portuguese egg tarts yang terkenal itu, harganya 10MOP atau 10HKD asli ini kue enak banget, wajib beli kalau kesini.

Dari Venitian saya lanjut ke Wynn Palace buat liat pertunjukan air mancur, pertunjukan ada setiap 30 menit sekali, kalau banyak waktu kalian juga bisa naik kereta gantung secara free disini.

Kembali ke Hong Kong, bisa jalan kaki kembali ke City of Dream, di lantai basementnya ada bus yang bisa mengantar kita gratis kembali ke Macau Ferry Terminal.

Hati-hati jangan salah naik, waktu itu salah naik sampai ke Border Gate, perbatasan Macau dan China daratan, al hasil saya harus beli tiket ferry baru untuk pulang karena tiket round trip yang saya beli di Klook sebelumnya sudah hangus.

[FR] openSUSE.Asia Summit 2017 – Tokyo Japan

openSUSE.Asia Summit 2017 Tokyo, Japan
This event at Tokyo is the fourth in openSUSE.Asia Summit.
I become excited to take part in this event, when I heard that Japan has been chosen as the host. One of the ways to take part is by submitting a paper.

Not long after, I got the news that my paper was accepted. Yeay, finally I can go to Japan. Along with my friends who also got accepted too, we bought and prepared all the things needed.

Three day before the actual main event, with three of my friends from GNU/Linux Bogor, we left from Jakarta to Tokyo by ANA (All Nippon Airways). The journey to Tokyo took around 7 hours (3,596 Miles)

The first day arrived in Tokyo, I was very surprised by the weather. It was around 10°C. Me and my friend Kukuh, only got time to go around Shibuya and see Hachiko statue. After that, we went directly to our place of stay.

The second day, we went out around noon and decided to visit the Fujiko F Fujio Museum. After that, at night we came to the welcome party held by the committee at UEC (University of Electro Communications).
