The 3 travelbesties... (photo tag)

Recently I received a photo tag from Under Lock and Key, thought that it’ll be cool to join in the fun (so that my blog won’t be just about my trip - well…. kinda).

Anyway, the rules of this tag are:
1. Open your 1st Photo folder.
2. Scroll to the 10th photo.
3. Post the photo and the story behind it.
4. Tag 5 or more people.

After careful thought and thinking of how best to cheat (INCASE my the pics turn out UGGGGGGLLLLYYYYYY), I am confident it will fall under my personal screen saver album of which I will; one way or another look AT LEAST presentable (phew!).

I opened the album, moved my cursor and counting at the same time… from left to right (naturally). Tah dah.. It falls under my Louvre & me pic… hemmm….doesn’t sound interesting to blog (susah lor like this). I read the rules again… AH-HAH! Since it doesn’t say to move the cursor right to left nor left to right nor top to bottom etc etc etc….. I smartly thought of doing JUST that ie move my cursor TOP to BOTTOM. YEAY! It landed on a pic and it is not just about MOI. Which means, better story to tell…. (as you can see, choosing pic alone took 2 whole paragraph to story mory!).

The 3 travelbesties…

This cool pics (well to us at least) was taken during our Jogjakarta trip (Yeah! Yeah! You can click on Jogja and it will redirect you to my Jogja blog) to see the magnificent Borobudur (YUP! UNESCO site. AGAIN). Our travel agent Lengga was very kind since I (as usual ie the ONE ALWAYS with WEIRD request) “highly” ie "insist-ly" requested to sight see Parangtritis (upon cousin’s recommendation) and YES! The view DID NOT DISAPPOINT us (unfortunately am not allowed to post more then one pics base on the rule lor. Lily SHALL FOLLOW RULE).

This pic was taken after the long horse ride along the beach. The coconut drink was certainly refreshing. Anna, Fatin & me togetherness pic, and if I'm not mistaken; that’s our 2nd coconut drink.

By the way, you will see the same folks in most of my pics by now… ofcos they’re my travelbestie - Anna, Andrea, Grace and Fatin the sista (in no particular order, nanti ada yang merajuk pulak kan kan kan… hehhehee….). Hopefully joining the gang - Kim, Rad & Esther (Come on guys! GURL POWER!).

Do go to my Jogja blog for more storytelling.

Parangtritis Beach Myth
Legends of Ratu Kidul or Nyai Loro Kidul and her tragic, demise abound…… Ratu Kidul's favourite color is a special shade of pale yellow-green known as gadung melati. Local folklore warns visitors not to wear the colour green, or the Queen will entice the wearer into the ocean to drown. And that is why you will rarely see anyone wearing green near the beach. If you happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, Ratu Kidul or her one of her ministers, may just claim you as another subject in her underwater court. Hyperlink credits - read more…

ColeAndJosephine said...

That is so funny! I was worried my picture would be horrible and I would have to cheat, too! But I don't know how you can get much better than drinks in coconuts!

Lily Riani said...


When I saw the coconut pics.... i was like "phew"..... else i need to source another way to "cheat" hehehheheee
