|Bangka Belitung Islands|
a young province (est. 2000 hehehe) in Indonesia which is located in the east of Sumatera Selatan province. consists of 2 big islands: Pulau Bangka and Pulau Belitung. Bangka Starit separates Sumatera and Bangka, and Gaspar Strait separates Bangka and Belitung. the capital city is Pangkal Pinang. my home.
it's true I was born in Jakarta, but I rarely regard it as my hometown. Bangka Belitung is my home. well, it's my parents' but my heart is there. home is where the heart is. hehehehe
so, Bangka Belitung was an unpopular province until a movie titled 'Laskar Pelangi' was released. people go to Belitung for holiday. it becomes one of tourist destination. BaBel (BAngka-BELitung) has many untouched beaches which are extremely cool for me. many people don't know about their existence. I like quiet places, and that's why beaches in BaBel are my homes.
