The Perk of Business Trip

The Perk of Business Trip

by noreply@blogger.com (Niantiaulia) @ Goodnight and Go


Hello All,

Tulisan kali ini akan singkat saja sepertinya, tujuannya untuk memperbanyak postigan di tahun ini (karena so far baru 2, hiks) dan tentunya untuk berbagi pengalaman dengan para pembaca sekalian. Kali ini topik yang akan saya bagi adalah sesuai judulnya yaitu keuntungan yang bisa kita dapat dari business trip. Saya termasuk orang yang cukup beruntung dimana pekerjaan saya mengharuskan saya untuk travelling ke berbagai negara, so far seringnya dalam lingkup South East Asia (SEA) saja sih, tapi tetap lumayan. Sebenernya tergantung orangnya juga, untuk orang yang tidak suka traveling mungkin pekerjaan seperti saya jadi tidak menguntungkan. Percaya atau tidak, setelah perjalanan ke Eropa saya di tahun 2011 saya sempat menulis di blog ini juga untuk resolusi di tahun 2012, pada saat itu saya baru akan mencari pekerjaan baru, ini kata-kata yang saya tulis: "bisa mendapatkan pekerjaan yang mendukung minat jalan-jalan saya". Pada saat itu saya belum even mulai mengupdate CV untuk apply-apply, saya baru mulai bekerja di bulan Maret 2012 and ternyata so far wish saya itu terwujud loh pemirsa. Makanya, lagi-lagi saya berkesimpulan, if you have any wishes, try to write it down, makes it closer to reality aja dan in my cases, some of those wishes are eventually coming true, so far belum semuanya tapi sesuatu banget kan?

Penang and Hoi An (Business Trip Weekends)

Penang and Hoi An (Business Trip Weekends)

by noreply@blogger.com (Niantiaulia) @ Goodnight and Go

Halo para pembaca sekalian..semoga masih berkenan membaca blog saya ini. Kali ini saya akan bercerita mengenai traveling yang saya lakukan pada saat weekend ketika saya sedang business trip. See, yang sudah pernah membaca blog saya sebelumnya pasti tahu bahwa saya ogah rugi-an, tentunya setiap business trip, I will try to make the best out of it. Pada tahun 2014, ada dua periode dimana saya stay lumayan lama di suatu negara untuk keperluan pekerjaan, sekitar hampir satu bulan lamanya, bulan September di Malaysia dan bulan Desember di Vietnam. Pada saat itu, setiap weekend sebisa mungkin saya pergi ke suatu tempat, meski di kota yang sama, baik itu melakukan day trip/tour, mengunjungi museum, ikut walking tour, atau sekedar jalan-jalan random dan window shopping. Ketika saya tahu saya akan berada di negara tersebut untuk waktu yang lumayan lama, saya sesegera mungkin mencek harga tiket pesawat ke kota lain di negara yang sama (karena hanya ada waktu 2 hari pada saat weekend ya saya sadar diri tidak akan cukup waktunya kalau ingin ke negara yang lain). Dengan pertimbangan tingkat attractiveness dan harga tiket pesawat maka saya putuskan untuk ke Penang dan Hoi An..horee..Tiket pesawat juga baru saya beli ketika saya sudah di sana, jadi agak sedikit impulsif juga dan kebetulan semuanya pas (waktu dan harga) ya dibeli.

Free Walking Tour in Saigon (yes, they have it!)

by noreply@blogger.com (Niantiaulia) @ Goodnight and Go

This post is really real time as I'm so excited and I want to put it in writing as soon as possible before it is evaporated and forgotten. I have been in Saigon for a week this time around and will be staying here for about a month, but I have visited Saigon also back in last October, June, and July with a total period of about 1 month for work. As for Vietnam, I have visited this country 4 years back in 2010, so I did and went already to those of main attractions, Cu Chi Tunnel, Mekong Delta, museums, and other landmark in the city. So, last Jun when I spent weekend in Saigon, I was actually looking for other activity to do in this city, aside from shopping (which I did as well).

Turkiye Trip (part 1)

Turkiye Trip (part 1)

by noreply@blogger.com (Niantiaulia) @ Goodnight and Go

Haii pembaca yang budiman  (seriously it took 5 minutes for me to decide mau pakai kata sapaan apa). Begitu lamanya saya tidak menulis sampai setiap post harus dimulai dengan, wah sudah lama ya saya tidak update. hehe. Kali ini saya mempunyai strategi baru, saya akan menulis mulai dari traveling saya yang terbaru, well tidak bisa dibilang baru juga sih karena trip ini saya lakukan di bulan Mei-Jun tahun ini, tapi setidaknya bukan pengalaman yang 3 tahun lalu itu lho..

Jadi, trip ini sebenernya agak dadakan juga karena saya baru membeli tiket pesawatnya sekitar 1 bulan sebelum keberangkatan, waktu itu saya baru menyadari banyak public holiday di akhir bulan Mei, yang mana, dengan mengambil cuti 5 hari-an bisa mendapatkan 10-11 hari off, lumayan sekali bukan? Saya pun langsung mengajukan cuti dan setelah cuti diapprove oleh bos, hari itu juga saya membeli tiket. hehehe.

Awalnya saya mau menuliskan semua pengalaman saya di Turki dalam satu postingan, namun setelah mulai menulis tampaknya akan jadi panjang sekali, jadi supaya tidak bosan, saya split saja jadi beberapa postingan (yang masih entah kapan akan selesai..haha)

Bali Physical Challenge Holiday

After 2.5 half months of 2015, finally saya menulis lagi, pakai bahasa Indonesia saja ya saya, sambil mengasah kemampuan berbahasa Indonesia yang baik dan benar (apa cobaa?). Oke, pada kesempatan kali ini saya akan membagi pengalaman traveling saya yang paling terbaru, yaitu ke Pulau Dewata alias Bali sekitar 1 bulan yang lalu. Sebenarnya sebelum ke Bali saya juga ke Padang dan ke Jogja, namun saya coba menuliskan dari yang paling baru dulu kali ya.. 

Traveling kali ini cukup spesial karena saya tidak perlu membayar tiket pesawat, kenapa? Karena ini sebenarnya ada acara dari kantor, acara kantor hanya 2 hari, saya extend jadi 6 hari, hehe, seperti biasa ogah rugi dong. Saya sendiri sangat excited untuk pergi ke Bali karena terakhir saya ke Bali tahun 2009, dan selama 2 kali saya ke Bali itu dalam rangka acara outing kantor dan kebetulan saya dulu masih lugu jadi tidak mengambil kesempatan untuk extend. Alhasil, bisa dikatakan saya belum pernah mengeksplore Bali, kalau acara kantor kan ikut saja dengan itinerary dari kantor dan tempat-tempatnya pun yang mainstream. Saya extend bersama salah satu rekan saya di kantor bernama Dita yang sudah sering sekali ke Bali, jadi saya percayakan saja kepada dia untuk itinerarynya toh saya belum pernah kemana-mana di Bali, kemanapun saya pasti senang.

The Truth about Polygamy in Islam

by noreply@blogger.com (Niantiaulia) @ Goodnight and Go


Whoa..I'm staring at the title above and yes, it sounds serious..actually last week I stumbled upon a brochure when I visited Masjid Jamek in KL. The title of the brochure is "Marry only one - Polygamy is either obligatory nor encouraged in Islam". Reading the title, I grabbed it instantly and put it in my bag, well it's not that I stole or anything, it was meant to be taken for the visitor of the mosque. Many other brochures with other topics were provided there, but I decided to take 1 only.

I found the information in the brochure are very good, we all know how sometimes Islam is associated with polygamy and probably that what was perceived by most of the people (both muslim and non-muslim) that Islam is encouraging muslims to do polygamy. So, I really want to share this info to people, but since the content is quite a lot, I can't just put it in facebook/twitter/path, so I'll just re-type it, Here we go

Myanmar: the Next Big Thing in Asia

Myanmar: the Next Big Thing in Asia

by noreply@blogger.com (Niantiaulia) @ Goodnight and Go


Halooo.. Another exciting story to tell because again I traveled to new country, as I've mentioned before, going to a new place is always exciting, regardless where the place is. As usual I will share a little bit of background to this trip (again, you wouldn't care but I'll do it anyway..).
Okay, honestly I've never been wanting to go to Myanmar before until one of my office colleague was actually recommending Myanmar to me after he found out I love traveling, he said currently not (yet) many people travel to Myanmar (though it's increasing now) and it's really good. I browsed some of the pictures in the internet and what made me interested is also that we are able to ride a hot air balloon to see magnificent view of Bagan, the land of thousand Pagoda. I even actually considered to take the balloon ride assuming that it may be cheaper in South East Asia, compared to Turkey, well it's not, in fact it's more expensive, around 300 USD, but I was thinking, it's okay I still got to see the balloon view in the morning/sunrise above the Pagodas which surely will be awesome too. Another ugly truth is the balloon doesn't operate the whole year, another fact that I found that when I was there, not before I bought the ticket. So, the low season would be from Apr to September, and it will resume in Oct. So, please note this before you purchase the flight ticket.

Yup, kejadian ini baru saja terjadi 2 hari yang lalu, tepatnya hari Sabtu ketika saya dalam perjlananan dari Hotel menuju Airport Suvarnabhumi di Bangkok.

part 1
Singkat kata telepon selular (selanjutnya sebut saja ponsel untuk mempersingkat penulisan) saya tertinggal di taksi yang membawa saya dari hotel ke airport. Sedikit background, ponsel saya ini tipe Nexus 4 yang sudah saya miliki sejak 2013, tapi saya suka sekali dengan ponsel ini. Akibat dari tertidur di taksi saya yang masih agak mengantuk langsung membayar taksi dan melupakan ponsel saya, baru beberapa langkah memasuki gedung airport baru saya menyadari bahwa ponsel saya tertinggal di taksi, yah, saya hanyalah seorang manusia modern yang mempunyai ketergantungan pada ponsel sehingga tidak membutuhkan waktu yang lama untuk saya menyadarinya, well there's always a positive side in everything, right?

Pada saat giliran staff teman saya ini akan bicara, saya pun nyeletuk (kebiasaan yg tidak baik) begini: "bilang dong, it's time for me to shine" yang langsung disambut heboh oleh semua teman-teman saya yang lain.

(at least buat saya sih). Ketertarikan saya ke Pamukkale disebabkan salah satu artikel yang di post salah seorang teman bahwa Pamukkale merupakan one of the strangest landscape on earth, dan begitu saya browsing lebih lanjut foto-fotonya....ahh semakin pengen deh ke sana.

by reddyandclarktrails @ Vietnam – reddy and clark trails

Our transport from Cat Ba dropped us in Hanoi early evening.  We wanted to try out the night train to central Vietnam but it turned out to be quite pricy (about $150 for the two of us) and was going to take a good 12 hours.  We found another option, …

Hoi An – Old Town Charm (and some crowds)

by reddyandclarktrails @ Vietnam – reddy and clark trails

Wanting to expand our transportation horizons, we opted for a ‘sleeper’ bus to our next destination, Hoi An, about a 3-hour ride from Hue.  There are 3 rows of seats, with seats on the bottom and top like bunk beds.  Buses go up and down the coast of Vietnam but we decided …

Insider’s Guide to Ho Chi Minh City

by Phuoc Le @ Innoviet Travel

New Year Holiday to Jogja

New Year Holiday to Jogja

by noreply@blogger.com (Niantiaulia) @ Goodnight and Go

Okay... setelah hampir setahun akhirnya akan saya tuliskan juga pengalaman saya ini. Yup, trip ini yang terjadi di penghujung tahun 2014 untuk merayakan 2015, tidak terasa tahun 2015 ini sudah mau berakhir, cepat sekali ya. Oke seperti biasa sedikit background untuk trip ini. Tahun 2014 kira-kira setengah tahun terakhir memang saya cukup sibuk dan saya pun harus menghabiskan waktu cukup lama untuk business trip, terakhir di bulan Nov-Dec saya sebulan lamanya business trip di Vietnam, oleh karena itu saya merasa saya deserved sekali untuk yang nama liburan dan ketika ada ajakan dengan mempertimbangkan lokasi, waktu, jatah cuti, langsunglah saya setuju, uang tidak menjadi masalah ya.. hahaha..sombong abis, eh bukan begitu kan ceritanya lagi butuh banget liburan. Kali ini travelmate saya adalah Fajrin dan Sukma yang sudah saya kenal dari waktu kuliah dulu. Walaupun saya sudah beberapa kali ke Jogja, saya tetap bersemangat untuk pergi ke kota ini, karena memang selalu membuat kangen ingin selalu kembali ke sini. Sebenarnya tidak ada niatan untuk merayakan tahun baru atau bagaimana, hanya kebetulan saja kita semua punya jatah cuti yang memadai. Kami pun menyelipkan kota Solo untuk dikunjungi supaya lebih seru aja sih ceritanya dan cukup mudah dan cepat dicapai dari Jogja. Saya sudah pernah ke Solo tapi sudah beberapa tahun yang lalu.

Cocktails at the InterContinental Hotel, Sandton Towers

by SnippetStation @ SnippetStation

I found the perfect stawberry daiquiri! It was the perfect mix of Bacardi rum, fresh lime juice and freshly muddled strawberries – not the sickly sweet syrupy concoction you normally find!
