Holiday in Puncak: Taman Bunga Nusantara

10 Jul

Taman Bunga Nusantara is also a good place for family holiday destination in Puncak, West Sumatra, Indonesia. It is like a huge amusement park but with flowers as attraction. Not only it has flowers, but also:

1️⃣ Peacock Plant-Statue

The welcome plant-statue for visitors who enter the entrance. Can you the peacock’s tail beautifully design from flowers on the ground? 🙂

2️⃣ Water Garden

It is called Water Garden because there is a pond and swimming gooslings on the pond.

3️⃣ Maze Garden

The maze is made of from plant. It is too big that we decided not to come into the maze, remembering we came with Baby O (no stroller and no carrier) and Baby O’s grandparents. So we just see the beautiful maze from the control tower. 😀

4️⃣ Musical Fountain

This is not just ordinary fountain. This is a water-dancing fountain along with the musical music that play along in the area. Baby O had so much fun in here 🙂

5️⃣ Rose Garden

Can you see the arches? They make up the rose garden beautifully. I bet many couples took pre-wedding photos here. 🙂

6️⃣ Play Park

Baby O’s first time experience riding a horse, unfortunately still accompanied by me. Because husband is afraid of horse 😅 And Baby O liked it very much. He always rewatch the video of him riding the horse at home every night before bed 😂

7️⃣ And many more 💚💚💚

If we google “Taman Bunga Nusantara” or open its official website (click here), the pictures are far more beautiful than pictures in this blog. The park is indeed beautiful, but somehow it is hard to take beautiful pictures there with using selfie stick. Perhaps we might need to use drone so we can capture the beauty from above. 🙂

Oh, and it was crowded when we went there on eid fitr holiday this year. We thought it was because of the eid fitr holiday, turned out we went there at the exact same time and date with Mr. President and his family (Mrs. First Lady and Ms. First Daughter) visit. No wonder it was too crowded. Can you count how many guards that came along with him? 😂


Visit Indonesia Campaign

3 Aug

Did you know that Visit Indonesia Campaign has been published since many years ago? I didn’t. I thought it was publicly advertised in the recent years. Not until I found this photo below on an old album at home.

It was the young version of me, my sister, and my mom on, as you can see from the picture, 1991 . I don’t remember where it was, but Dad said the photo was taken in front of Grand Hyatt Jakarta.

A little bit funny don’t you think? That we campaigned for foreigners to visit Indonesia in 1991 when the campaign itself was held on 1991 . Kinda misprepared, right? Because people don’t just go to some place when they see the advertisement. They have to prepare the budget. They have to set the date at first.

We should have been campaigning since 2010 or even 2009 for Visit Indonesia Year 2011 . So that in the real 2011 , we’ll be ready if tourist are coming to Indonesia. It’s so a big mistake if we campaign Visit Indonesia Year 2011 in 2011 itself. A kind mistake that we’ve been doing since a long time ago in the past, huh?

As Soekarno said, “Don’t ever forget about the past (Jangan sesekali melupakan sejarah – Ind)”. Take a lesson from the past, shall we start publishing Visit Indonesia Year 2012 from this moment? 🙂
