just Jogja-ing around...

Friday 20th March 2009

i decided as i was on school holidays to re-visit an old haunt of mine...Jogjakarta in Central Java. i first started going there about 11 years ago when i was living in Jakarta and completely fell in love with the sleepiness and gentle vibe of the little city. i had many fantastic trips there back then and when a friend hinted that she wanted to go, i couldn't wait to go back and see all my old hang-outs and visit many beloved spots. unfortunately...as i have been told...one should always be careful of the nostalgia...for things change, cities grow, pollution increases, tourist attractions are damaged by earthquakes or lose their sheen, streets that seemed so happening and full of life, become quiet and tired...but the key is to make fresh memories...and there certainly were many of those...
