Gili Trawangan, Lombok Island, Indonesia
ulau Lombok saat ini telah menjadi salah satu ikon utama pariwisata Indonesia. Keindahan Pulau Lombok tidak ada duanya di Indonesia. Selain Pulau Lombok sebagai pulau utama dengan eksotismenya, pulau ini mempunyai beberapa pulau kecil di sekitarnya juga dengan eksotismenya yang akan mengundang Anda untuk menikmati keindahan pulaunya. Kawasan pantai barat Lombok menjadi kawasan yang tidak akan dilewati oleh wisatawan mancanegara maupun wisatawan lokal. Selain Pantai Senggigi yang terkenal, kawasan pantai barat Lombok masih mempunyai tiga pulau kecil yang berada dalam satu garis lurus, oleh masyarakat setempat disebut gili, terkenal dengan nama Gili Matra, yakni Gili Meno, Gili Air dan Gili Trawangan. Gili Trawangan biasanya tidak pernah dilewatkan oleh para wisatawan. Gili ini merupakan gili dengan populasi penduduk paling tinggi dibandingkan dengan kedua gili yang lain, yakni dihuni sekitar 800 jiwa. Gili Trawangan memang merupakan gili terbesar diantara ketiga gili tersebut, memiliki panjang 3km dan lebar 2km. Bagian paling padat penduduk adalah bagian timur pulau ini. Gili Trawangan juga merupakan satu-satunya gili yang ketinggiannya di atas permukaan laut cukup signifikan. Bayangkan segala hal yang akan Anda lakukan pada saat melakukan liburan musim panas: berjalan di atas pasir pantai yang putih, berenang di dalam air sebening kristal, melihat terumbu karang dengan ikan hias yang menggemaskan, BBQ di tepi pantai, pesta cocktail di tepi kolam, menari dalam pesta di bawah sinar bulan! Yes! Gili Trawangan-lah jawabannya. Gili Trawangan memiliki fasilitas untuk wisatawan yang paling beragam dibandingkan dengan Gili Meno dan Gili Air. Nuansa "pesta" lebih terasa disini karena banyaknya pesta yang digelar setiap malam yang acaranya dirotasi oleh beberapa tempat keramaian. Kedai Tir na Nog mengklaim bahwa Gili Trawangan adalah pulau terkecil di dunia yang mempunyai bar Irlandia. Aktivitas yang populer dilakukan para wisatawan di Trawangan adalah scuba diving (dengan sertifikasi PADI), snorkeling (di pantai sebelah timur laut), bermain kayak, dan berselancar. Ada juga beberapa tempat bagi para wisatawan belajar berkuda mengelilingi pulau. Bagi para diver atau snorkeler, Anda dapat menikmati segala jenis keindahan laut, termasuk menikmati keindahan penyu hijau (Chelonia mydas). Anda dapat melihat penyu-penyu ini di kedalaman 10-20m dibawah laut. Yang unik dari Gili ini adalah Anda tidak akan menemukan kendaraan bermotor di Gili Trawangan, begitu juga di dua gili lainnya, karena tidak diizinkan oleh aturan lokal. Sarana transportasi yang lazim adalah sepeda (disewakan oleh masyarakat setempat untuk para wisatawan) dan cidomo, kereta kuda sederhana yang umum dijumpai di Lombok. Anda dapat menyewa kereta kuda cidomo untuk mengelilingi keseluruhan pulau. Untuk bepergian ke dan dari ketiga gili itu, penduduk biasanya menggunakan kapal bermotor dan speedboat. Sayang, kita tidak bisa mengunjungi ketiga gili ini hanya dalam waktu 1 hari jika menggunakan transportasi umum, karena jadwal keberangkatan kapal yang tidak memungkinkan. Jika ingin mengunjungi semua gili dalam waktu 1 hari maka kita harus men-charter kapal yang tentunya memakan biaya yang lebih besar. Jika menggunakan transportasi umum maka paling banyak kita hanya bisa mengunjungi 2 gili saja.
Emojis Are Not Made The Same
Not all devices are alike. Apple, Android, and Windows, to name a few, are very different operating systems and that key difference also makes for very different variations of emojis. The most popularized Unicode Consortium, or the body that selects which emojis will make their public debut, is the Apple version. They are used in marketing campaigns, commercials, apps, texting, food delivery, etc. However operating systems like iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry, Samsung, LG, etc. don't always have the same variations of emojis that the general public is accustomed to. This leads to an ultimate dilemma, emojis are basically a language all their own and somehow they are getting lost in digital translation. Thanks to Yahoo tech, a comprised list of varied emojis from device to device: 1. Woman With Bunny Ears You may recognize this emoji normally as the Bunny twins, tap-dancing girls, showgirls, or any of the other various nicknames. However when you transfer over to Android, you'll be in a surprise that the emoji becomes a yellow gumdrop looking face with a brown wig and bunny ears. The dynamic duo is no longer, which probably leads to some confusion at Halloween for Android users who are curious as to when there was an emoji of two Woman With Bunny Ears. 2. Colored Hearts This one is all about design. Apple keeps the hearts very uniform, vibrantly colored, and as basic as can be. For Android, the emojis hold a lot more meaning while also being somewhat cheesy. There is practically no color variation and I don't even know what to think about the fuzzy heart. Emojis are supposed to be playful and I think Android really missed the boat on this one. 3. Watch Obviously iOS looks classier but I am definitely a bigger fan of Android for some reason. I think sometimes less is more and I think it translates well in this instance. After all, a watch is a universal symbol so it's really hard to mess that up between devices. If anything, the emojis from device to device just show a different kind of watch that is solely exclusive to it's own device which seems cool in this example. 4. Eggplant You know exactly what this means if it's sent in iMessage. And you know exactly how hilarious this emoji can be because let's be honest, there is really no everyday use for an eggplant so you might as well spice it up a bit if you know what I'm aiming at. Now as for Android, it's a poor example of an eggplant to begin with but there is no way that it'd ever be used for alternative purposes within messaging. Just no way. 5. Slice of Pizza Okay Android wins on this one. The iOS version looks like a horribly designed emoji that is trying way too hard to be life-like. I appreciate the pic-art look of Android's emoji in this comparison. However, Dominos Pizza is using the iOS emoji in their brand as you can order a pizza now just sending that emoji. After all, that's pretty clever but the pizza emoji could get a generic facelift. 6. Rowboat This is a BIG difference. iOS looks certainly more appropriate and attractive on an interface. The Android immediately signals a date instance which could be totally misconstrued. Also Android needs to keep up with the times as emojis no longer have one option -- with LGBT and racial skin tones being introduced, their emojis need to be updated. Emojis are great because they include everyone and the rowboat needs the same. 7. Glowing Heart Either way, they both accurately depict what you're trying to show. Personally I like the iOS version more however the Android heart isn't horrible. A heart is a heart no matter how you dress it up. Good work to both. 8. Pistol/Gun Windows is the only operating system that doesn't include a gun that looks like iOS. Instead they've opted for a less serious space gun that could easily be more appropriate for Star Trek than anything else. With weapon emojis being taken more and more serious in the media, Windows will have to figure out how to not cause any trouble for its users who may be using their version of the gun emoji playfully while it will be translated into a more serious message. 9. Love Hotel Well to be honest, I've thought the 'H' on iOS stood for hospital and the heart symboled health. Apparently that's the exact opposite of what it meant. Windows does a much better job at representing this but they are both confusing. It wouldn't have killed them to spell out "hotel" on the building, you know. 10. Mobile Phone We get it, you love your own phone. 11. Donut Hmmm these are all very stereotypical of the interface they appear on. To be honest, Windows looks the least like a donut and I personally am not a fan. Android does a pretty good job and iOS is the most life like. I guess this one boils down to pure preference but it should be understood between each device fairly easily. I guess Windows doesn't like chocolate frosting. 12. Alien Monster Well these have very different connotations from the get-go. For iOS, most believe this emoji is a representation of an arcade game that you use with a joystick. For Android, however, it's actually alien monster that looks like an evil version of Pearl from Finding Nemo creepily ready to say "Awww you guys made me ink muhahahahahha!". We have an alien emoji already in iOS, why do we need this one? 13. Tennis Either way, they fit the bill and do a nice job at symbolizing. 10 for 10 on both.
