Family gathering with people from work. This is an event we do every year, and for this year we are enjoying the new recreational park in Batu, Malang: “Jawa Timur Park 2.” Located in the hills, we are staying at Pohon Inn hotel, and made a visit to Batu Secret Zoo, Animal Museum, and of course “Batu Night Spectacular” ..

Last Sunday, I went to one of Surabaya’s oldest shopping mall “Plaza Surabaya” and stopped-by at its playground. Located on the rooftops, this playground used to be one of the coolest place (back, perhaps 10 years ago) for kids. Before, the era of electronic game centers such as T*mezone and the like.
But today, the condition of this playground is, well.. kinda being abandoned and desperately in need for improvements. The colors and available toys are lovely, though, with rusts and broken paints. All photos were took using a Nikon D3100, with 55-300 lens.

Located on the east side of Java Island, “Pasir Putih” beach is part of the Situbondo area of East Java province. For travelers from Jakarta or West Java, who took a trip to Bali by car, you will find this beach after you pass Surabaya, but several kilometers before Banyuwangi.
Almost every Idul Fitri, I took a trip to this beach because it is located near my husband’s village of Kraksaan. And this time, I brought along my Nikon D3100, as a newbie photographer..

This holiday marks my first time learning to use the very basic trick of a Digital-SLR Camera, Nikon D3100, “capturing splashes of water” .. Photo was taken at 11.00 AM, in a river near Songa Rafting area, Probolinggo, East Java.
