7 x 7 Things You (Don’t) Know About Me

In order to respect Carla who tagged me, twice; and to respect my sweetheart who asked me to write my things quite a while ago, I decided to write this post.

Okay, not all of those sentences are true, but the latest. In fact, I am quite bored, I want to write something, but I don’t know where to start since I haven’t write anything for a long, long time, so I guess this is a good material to help me start.

If you have noticed the title, it’s a bit different from what others have done, it says 7 things, not 8 things. That’s because I like the number 7. The items will be listed in alphabetical order. So, without further ado, let’s bring the list on.

One Fine Day at Ciputra Water Park

Today I had an appointment with Jon and Yendy to go to Ciputra Water Park in Citraland, Surabaya. I went to Jon’s place around 8.30 AM and we went by Jon’s motor cycle to Mc. Donald’s in Mayjen Sungkono to meet Yendy. We’re pretty late. Yendy had been waiting for us more than an hour. Sorry bro :D. Since Yendy was hungry, we had some breakfast there. After filling our stomach and some chat about men’s stuffs and dreams, we went together to Citraland.

We arrived at Ciputra Water Park around 11 AM. It was much smaller than what I thought, but it’s quite nice. As the name implied, it was full of water. There were the large water roller coaster, a a giant water tank that would pour water when it was full of water, an artificial wave generator, a trampoline, and some children playgrounds.

Although it was Sunday, the park was uncrowded. I could only see a few visitors. We spent some times to walk around there. We planned to go swimming in the afternoon to avoid sunburn. But since the place wasn’t crowded, we got bored and decide to try the thrilling water roller coaster. To get on the coaster, we must climb up the stairs to the top of the tower. It was the most awful part. We also had to carry a small rubber boat. Each boat would carry precisely two passengers. A lifeguard stood by to help people get on the coaster. At first, I tried the coaster with Jon, and like I expected, Jon swore and cursed all the way down to the ground. Then I got on with Yendy. He screamed so loudly my ears could have been damaged. We got on the coaster a few times before we moved to other pool.

After noon, more and more people came by. After a few more rounds on the coaster, we went home at around 6PM, with sunburn and super tired body. Even too tired to write this blog.
