InterNations Surabaya June Event

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Thank you to everyone who attended Internations Surabaya’s June 6th Event at the Sheraton Surabaya. All the faces, both familiar and newly discovered. If you weren’t there, hope we see you soon.

The band was excellent, playing top 40, classics, as well as a good section of Latin music that got everyone up and dancing.

Thankfully the hotel GM saw food running low and re-filled. Cheap beer prices were also helpful.

Next event we hope to be able to offer door-prizes.

April’s event at Burg&Burp was 130 attendees
May’s Event at Supresso Coffee bar was 90
June’s event was 67 paid attendees.

We have a couple of out of town trips planned for June/July. We’ll keep you posted

Thanks to Chris Kyriss, Jessy Natalie Kyriss, Catherine Moore, Emily Tjandra, Adryan Sutanto Chandra,Chris Moore (the hardest working GM in Rock& Rol …(er the Sheraton) the band, and the staff and crew of the Sheraton Surabaya for their tireless efforts. It was a great evening.

Blue Lagoons, green jungles, and somewhat greener campers

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

I spent the weekend in Sendang Biru(supposedly
translates as Blue Lagoon)
It’s a area near Malang … about five hours drive
from Surabaya, a 20 minute boat ride,Arrivingand then a fairly
rough one hour walk.All ashore
I hadn’t carried a water bottle within easy reach and after a good start I was soon winded and de-hydrated.
The jungle is a humid hell-hole if you aren’t prepared. I all but crawled the last few 100 metres down to the beach. I quickly re-hydrated and gobbled a couple of aspirin.
Blue LagoonThe lagoon was beautiful. Blue-green water, surrounded
by lushly overgrown coral walls. A large opening
allowed a steady surf to enter and replenish the
Hole in the wall
Just outside the lagoon
Oddly the lagoon is subject to tides; and the
high level we arrived at became a shallow wading pool
just before dusk.
Just outside the lagoon ...don't look down
Emily didn’t make the trip.
Once she found out we’d be camping without prepared
toilet facilities she begged off.
So it was myself and four other teachers, later joined
by a slightly larger group of teachers from other

Drinking, small talk and late-night swimming ensued.
Generally a pretty good time.
Sunday afternoon we hiked out again. Minus much of
the weight we had brought in. We packed out five bags
of garbage – two of which were beer cans, coke and two
vodka bottles.
I had been to the area in `99, but never to the lagoon.
It’s worth the trip.

All the best,Wayne
