Not literally a bad luck

Superbly designed new mosque infront of Alun Alun
Oh God I was sneezing, drippy nose, flu I’ve gotten from the air-conditioned bus. A reasonably nice and clean hotel of Hotel Palem Malang made me be able to rest and relax comfortably. I didn’t have sigle clean cloths anymore after nearly 2 weeks on the road; I went to local shop bought washing detergent and cleaned all my t-shirt. It took 2 days to dry.

Malang or Bad Luck (a direct English translation) has a breezy and cool climate. And it isn’t densely populated as I could walk around and bumping to fewer people on the street. The town itself looks like a very well planned city. The city was established by Dutch at the closing decade of 18th century.

Day 2 I was still feeling weak after the pills I took I passed out in the noon. So half day was gone. The next day before leaving Malang in the noon I had a quick stroll along Alun-Alun where the busy street of Malang revolves. There was superb newly built Mosque side by side with Church infront of alun-alun. Then I took Angkot to Singosari Temple, it was located off the highway between Malang and Surabaya. After spending decent minutes (nothing much to do other than pictures) I took the bus heading to Probolingo. The journey took about 2 hours on the public bus crammed with local. It was Sunday, the day locals went to town doing some weekend outing with kids.
