It was Alex’s company trip. I told Alex; I want to follow..bawa saya jugak larr…
Keke…(my tactic sudah menang :-p) So, Alex registered me for the trip as well…gigi gaga gugu 😀
The trip was on October 2009. We traveled by Air Asia Airline. The total occupants from their company was around 100 person. Can you imagine it…it was like they booked the whole flight….Because it was not a peak season period. This is the first time we travelled to Medan. There’s a famous place over there named Lake Toba.
Checked in to the hotel; Hotel Niagara. Its located uphill,so its abit cold.
watched the cultural dance & performance
A boat trip across the lovely Lake Toba cut through the crystal clear water of Lake Toba to Samosir Island. Tomok a village of Batak Tobanese, to see their distinctive traditional peak roofed houses. Observed their way of life and also the ancient tomb to their king Sidabutar. Ambarita here you can see the chairs and tables made of pure stone which were used during the meeting of the king and his court house when discussing the important matters concerning the government.
