Yogjakarta: Arrival + Krapton Palace

Hey guys, I have been so busy and no time to arrange the photos i took in Yogjakarta.
Here it is... First day, arrival in the airport with Air Asia,
only RM65 for the flight fees.
Cheap huh? :)

The airport is not that advance compare to other places,
even Vietnam or Cambodia is better than here.
Have to q up for almost half an hour to pass thru here~

Well, we are so damn hungry.
After we put our stuff in the hotel,
we straight ahead go to the 1st destination, Krapton Palace.
But before that, we have our brunch somewhere nearby.
See? This is the local "Nasi Gudeg".
A mix of rice just like our nasi lemak, but a sweet version.
They have this tin tin of biscuit and you can eat as much as you want.
The small shop at here, kinda cute right? :)

Yay, this is the Krapton Palace.
The living place of Sultan Yogjakarta :)
The sultan is still living at here, but he's also the gabenor of the Yogjakarta,
therefore he is in the office while we are visiting his palace :)
