Pok Tunggal Beach, Gunung Kidul # Special Region of Yogyakarta – Indonesia

Our last destination is Pok Tunggal Beach. From Jogan Beach, you have to go out from Tepus, then to Baron Beach directions. From the entrance, Pok Tunggal Beach is the first beach to reach. And it’s already known by people, so the facility is good.

Why Pok Tunggal? I heard that because there’s only one tree in this beach. But when I get there, there’s another tree beside Pok Tunggal Tree and the Pok Tunggal Tree has been circled with fence. It’s really different with picture from Yogyes.

We got sunset in here. There’s coral cliff in the both side of the beach.

Jogan Beach with Waterfall, Tepus, Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta # Special Region of Yogyakarta – Indonesia

From Jomblang Cave, we continue our journey to Jogan Beach, which located near Siung Beach and Wedi Ombo Beach. It’s so far. Just go to the Siung Beach direction, then after pass the Siung Beach entrance (IDR 3.000/pax), you will see a sign to Jogan. Turn left and follow the road. They renovated the road, so we have to drove slowly. We could see the karst hill on the way to the beach. The car parking cost IDR 5.000/car.

The beach itself, still not fully opened for tourists, the facility is minimum, but many people come there just to enjoy the scene. We can’t swim in there. The waterfall fall directly to the sea, and this is what made Jogan Beach special and many people come to here.

The sea is on tide position. The staff there said, that in the evening, the sea will be on subside position so we could go down.

Jomblang Cave, Adventure Vertical Cave, Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta # Special Region of Yogyakarta – Indonesia

After lunch, we continue our journey to Jomblang Cave. We thought that because Jomblang Cave is an attraction place, so the journey to there would be easy. But it’s not. It’s hard to located the place.

Located at Jetis Wetan, Pacarejo, Semanu, Gunung Kidul, we have to passed broken road which only enough for 1 car.

 I have known this place from My Trip Magazine volume 7. It looks interesting. But after I went there, OMG~~ I didn’t think it would be scary.

Firstly, after we arrive at the location, you won’t know that that locations is Jomblang Cave parking. But because there’s no other way, so we park there. Then we found a map that show us the Jomblang Cave structure. But we didn’t see any Cave.

There’s some room like hotel, I don’t know what’s that for. Fortunately, there’s someone in there, so we asking about Jomblang Cave. It turned out that we have to walk to arrive at the cave. And because we arrive there at 13:30, the cave already close. We have to arrive before 09:00 o’clock in the morning to experience the adventure.

There’s 2 way to experience it, you can buy the package for IDR 450.000/pax (include lunch, and took 3 to 4 hours) and the operator will take you down there using the equipment. Or if you have climbing skill, you could climb by your own.

I thought that the cave is small like a little hole. But it’s big. With depth 60m so it looks scary.

When we arrive there, there’s a group that climbing by their own. They said that they camp in there. Wow… ~~

It’s a long way to go there. We entering Bleberan Village which cost IDR 2.000/pax. Then just follow the instruction to go to the waterfall.

Arrive at the entrance, we still need to ride car to the parking lot. It tooks almost 20 minutes from the entrance. Car parking fee is IDR 5.000/car.

Then we still need to walk to the waterfall area. In the middle of the path, there’s tree-section. If you want to ride boat, then turn left, but if you just want to enjoy the waterfall, turn right. When we came, the river is overflow, so the boat didn’t operated. Becareful, because of the overflow, the path is slippery.

It’s really crowded maybe because it’s Sunday. Too many people in there, I even can’t see the waterfall.

2015 KGSP-Graduate — Send the documents to Sookmyung Women’s University

I decided, today is the right time to send my documents to Sookmyung Women’s University at Korea by EMS. It cost IDR 189.200.

If you send the documents, my suggestions is, send it in a big brown envelope.

For KGSP, you need to send 1 original set of documents, and 3 copy set of documents. In here, original means not really original. But the documents, such as your transcript and degree certificate, must be notarized by university or notary or Korean Embassy.

KGSP documents

1. Application Formfor applicants who apply via Designated University – this should be original. Type the applications form by computer, then print it and put your photo in there (1pcs of 3×4 this year — I remember that it’s different size last year, but I forget what size. Just make sure to read what they ask). I think, no need to give additional photos, because they only ask you 1pcs.
—– Copy this application form with photo 3 times, so the result there’s a copy of your photo too (black and white).
—– If you apply for Embassy, there’s Application Form for applicants who apply via Embassy (*don’t make mistake)

2. Self Introductions – write your introductions in here, your course of life, your view of life, study background, work experience, your motivation, ect for only 1 page (don’t write more than 1 page). The font size which provided from guidelines is so small, so if you can, adjust it until size 10 to make people comfortable to read it.
—– Copy 3 times (black and white)

3. Study Plan – write your plan of study, your goal of study and your future plan.
—– There’s Research Proposal page, if you apply via embassy or designated university, you didn’t need to fill it, only for reseach program.

I have an english translations for my graduation certificate and transcript, so I just need to notarize it and copy 3 times. I’m using local notary, and I have to pay IDR 150.000 for 2 copy each documents (total 4).
—– If you have english version, then you just need to notarized it. You can notarized it in your university, or local notary, or Korean Embassy. Just choose which is convenient for you. You need to pay for this notarized things. After notarized, then you can copy 3 times (black and white), so you don’t need to notarized 3 documents.
—– If you didn’t have english version, then you have to use sworn translator to translate your documents into english, and notarized it at your university or Korean Embassy or local notary.

9. Certificate of TOEFL or IELTS score – This documents is optional. You can send it if you have, but if you didn’t have then it doesn’t matter. I have TOEFL score but not official, so I just send it without notarized. I also have HSK score, but I thought that didn’t necessary so I didn’t send my HSK score.
—– don’t forget to copy 3 times

10. Copy of Passport11. Copy of Parents Passport12. Birth Certificate
I send copy of my passport and my parents passport without notarized. But I have birth certificate which already translate to english by sworn translator, and it’s acceptable. Copy each of them 3 times (black and white)
—– Maybe it’s different for some university, so you have to check it before you send the documents.
—– I’m using Mitra Penerjemah for translate my documents to English.

After all documens ready, put each set documents in chocolate envelopes which smaller than the big one (don’t fold the documents, look for A4 / F4 envelope). I put every set of documents inside plastic, and chocolate envelopes so I have 4 small envelopes (don’t fold, look for A4 envelope).

Don’t forget to name the envelope:
> Original Documents – KGSP 2015 – (Applicant’s name) – (Country)
> Copy of Documents – KGSP 2015 – (Applicant’s Name) – (Country)

Then I put them (all 4 envelopes) inside bigger envelopes. Then print the destination address and send it.

I’m using EMS from Indonesia, and there’s no problem on sending process.

Now just wait until the documents arrive and the notice from the SMU.
