Than we left wisma apung to the shore. There were around 5 becaks ready to take us to the pear. We even had becak riding competition hehehe. Got the pear, this time we took a longer boat to take us back. Since the one that we used the first time was not avaible on weekdays. We took the boat to Jepara.
We arrived at Jepara around 3pm and a driver with mini bus was already standing by for us (see told you to take Pak Joko package, he will arrange everything for you!). The trip from Jepara (known as furniture city in Java) to semarang by car was around 3 hours. We got to Semarang train station around sunset. Peggy had to buy the tickets back (since the rest of us already had ours). But we had to say goodbye to Saby. He was going back to Jogja with the minibus.
Than we rent angkot again to take us to down town. First stop was the street famous for traditional eggrolls called lumpia. ALong with coconut cake called wingko babat. We took a quick stopped to by some stuff for our family back home. The lumpias cost around 3500 IDR/pieces or you can buy 6500 IDR/pieces for bigger one. The wingko babat was around 7500IDR for 20 pieces (for small ones).
After that we took a ride to simpang lima to had dinner. We choose this small food kios. There was a friendly lady who had all these traditional food infront of us. You can have nasi ayam (chicken curry rice) or nasi pecel (rice with veggies and peanut sauce). The food was delicious and the price was affordable. It only cost us around 10.000 IDR included 1 teh botol.
Than we went back to the station.
around 8pm, our train came. Ahhh it's time to say adios to the wonderful experience!!
See you on the next destination of heaven on earth :D
