Cronulla Beach and The Monument
I went to Cronulla Beach last summer to visit an old friend back in the University days. On the day, it had a very bright and clear sky. Since I have been to Cronulla only once before, I didn't have time to walk around, so I and my friend walked along the beach for a long time then we had look around the beach.

Cafe, restaurants and drink stalls are spreading along the mall, close to the beach. It's the only beach with a lots of shops around its, here in Sydney.

What was the frog doing on that chair? Life a luxury life? Living in an expensive apartment close to the beach and enjoying its leisure time? Or the owner was a frog lover?

I saw this strange stone, for me it doesn't resemble any of the flower around the monument. So, we came closer to the stone and notice a plaque next to the stone. It's a monument of the girls killed in Bali Bombing I.

Here are the plaque. After I read this I couldn't make any comment other than hope that Bali will not suffer anymore. I heard the Balinese people are kind and nice, they don't deserve any of those incidents. Those mad terorists in Indonesia, whose nationality not even Indonesian, trying to destroy our Bali. Hope the Indonesian police would be able to catch and stop their organization.

Itu archive foto2 Yen. Tapi Sydney emang banyak tempat2 wisata, pantai2 dan Sydney itu lebih luas dari Jakarta dan kemana2 mudah dicapai public transport, jadi kalo boring saya sering tiba2 pergi entah kemana ngabur bersama kamera tanpa plan.
