I decided to treat myself sop ayam (chicken soup) with rice, chili sauce (sambal sop), empal, and...

Karimunjawa, Beyond the Average

It was 12.00 a.m. and the air begun to be colder when people just fell asleep while I was riding my motorcycle from Solo headed toward Jepara with three other friends of mine.
